Darling Diva Polish Bitchcraft

Darling Diva Bitchcraft is a charcoal holo linear holographic polish with a bonus - small colour shifting glitters! The glitters in Bitchcraft shift from blue to red, and are quite stunning when they catch the light.

This is three coats with Seche Vite quick drying top coat, pictures are taken indoors in indirect sunlight. In this lighting, the holo effect is quite strong, and the glitters give a strong colour shift. This effect is quite different to the holographic duochromes (eg Ozotic Mish-Mash colours (532 etc) or Enchanted Polishes like Kids) - it's much more granular and, in my opinion, more interesting. Darling Diva Polish Bitchcraft is easy to apply and the SV doesn't dull the holo at all. The polish is also hardwearing, I took these pictures on the third day of wearing!

The polish base is quite jelly-like, so you can see a suspension of colour shifting glitter in amongst the holo - best seen in close up!

Bitchcraft is the art of being bitchy while smiling sweetly :D Whatever, this polish is gorgeous!

I believe the glitters in this polish are similar to those in Ozotic 529, although I don't have that polish to do a comparison. I DO have Ozotic 528, which has a purple / green shifting glitter, and I also have a bottle of Darling Diva OMG BFD! which is the sister polish to Bitchcraft, and these glitters look very similar indeed (if not the same). I'll be posting about OMG BFD! soon; I was going to review both these polishes together but they are so lovely I think each deserves its own post.

In full sun, this is a serious holo!

Of course, with the holo full on, the impact of the colour shifting glitter is rather drowned out - but it's like having two polishes in one. I think in the full sun this polish is as comparable to Layla Flash Black for a strong linear charcoal holo, but it's easier to apply, wears much better and isn't spoilt by topcoat.

Here's a macro in the sun to finish with :)
