Darling Diva Polish - Ringer Goes Blonde (LE)


      Today I have for you a possible LE polish from Darling Diva Polish called Ringer Goes Blonde. I'm not sure how many of you follow Darling Diva on Face book but if you do, you'll know that this polish was created by Mr. Darling Diva Polish and sold while the Mrs. was away for the weekend. When I first saw this posted online I knew I wanted to have it solely based on that fact and ordered one right away. As of this posting this polish is still available for purchase.

     Ringer Goes Blonde is not your typical shimmery top coat. Sure at first glance you might think that, looking at the bottle you will see hints of red and green. But that's where the "typical" part stops. It's my opinion that RGB is a shimmer top coat on steroids.

     I decided to start by swatching RGB on it's own and was pleased with the results. I knew I wasn't going to get full opacity with this but what I did get was better. The fiery orange translucent shimmer reminded me of the flickering embers of a fire. I instantly thought of being at the cabin on a warm summer night. Listening to the waves wash up on the beach and watching the fire flies float around as the bonfire slowly dies out.

     I knew there was more to this polish than just the fiery orange shimmer. Where was the green that I could see in the bottle? That's when I decided to swatch RGB over black to see it's full potential. I used one coat of Finger Paints Black Expressionism as my base. (The ultimate black polish by the way. You can find my post on it here.)

     See what I mean by a shimmer top coat on steroids! The intensity of the color shift just blew me away. Now instead of being reminded of flickering embers I'm reminded of a stunning opal. In the bottle I was only able to see red and green shimmer but on the nail you get so much more! As I shifted my hand around the colors almost appear to glow off my nails. I didn't want to take this off. In fact I left it one for a full hour during my swatching fest because I liked it so much.

      I only own one other shimmer top coat and I have yet to use it, but I feel like I may be disappointed with it after this. I do see a comparison post in the future though so be on the lookout for that. What do you think of Ringer Goes Blonde? Have you come across a top coat that was this intense before? How do you feel about how this polish came to be created, do you like to hear about the Mr.'s behind the scenes getting involved? Thanks for stopping by and checking out my post. Happy Polishing!

    1. I just loved it over the black. The polish really seemed to come alive that way.
