Darling Diva Krasivaya Polish Pickup April 2017

Darling Diva Krasivaya Polish Pickup April 2017

I love seeing innovative things in the nail world and one such example is the Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. The inaugural Polish Pickup theme was Works of Art and Darling Diva Krasivaya is from the initial set of polishes in April 2017.

Darling Diva Polish's contribution to April's Polish Pickup is Krasivaya which means "beautiful" in Russian. I think, to this point, Darling Diva has contributed to every Polish Pickup. Some brands rotate in and out and others are more regular.

Carrie, the maker of Darling Diva said the following about Krasivaya: "My inspiration was the delicate and beautiful Faberge egg made in 1898 called Lilies of the Valley. I wanted my polish to be a delicate shift from pink through gold and a pale green with a dazzling linear holo. Top coat is recommended but not required. A good top coat can let that holo and the color shift really pop!"



What a gorgeous piece of inspiration for this polish. You really do get a sense of the pink from the base of the egg and the gold from the legs. I didn't see too much green in the shift. The colours which stood out most were pink, gold, copper and even some purple/blue. The holo in this was really nice and yet the polish was still beautiful when not in direct light. I love when a polish can be beautiful as a holo in direct light but also when not in direct light. The shift helps with that in a big way.

This polish is oddly neutral considering it's got so much going on. I wore two coats plus top coat and when I wasn't in direct light, this polish was very subdued. The formula was okay - it was kind of sticky if that makes sense. I had to be careful when applying it because I think it was a tad too thick for my preference. I probably should have thinned it in hindsight.

I think Darling Diva Krasivaya was a really unique and impactful take on the Lillies of the Valley Faberge Egg for the Works of Art Polish Pickup. I bought a few others from this release and have those to share in the future. It will probably be months from now because they haven't yet been swatched and I'm already backlogged by at least a month :P I'm a busy lady and now that it's summer, I want to spend every second outside even if it means being eaten alive by mosquitoes.
