Ninja Polish - Divinity (Enigma Collection)

     Happy Friday!! And not just any Friday, but a holiday weekend Friday for those of us that Celebrate the 4th of July.  Whos ready for a nail polish post from me? It feels like forever since I've written about nail polish, and I might be a bit rusty so bear with me. It would have been pretty good planning on my part if I kicked things off with a 4th of July manicure but that would have required me having my act together and lately that isn't happening. Instead, you'll have to settle for the jaw-dropping awesomeness that is Ninja Polish Divinity.

     Divinity is just one of the polishes available from the Enigma collection which unfortunately is currently out of stock. I actually received mine in a swap package a few months back. It's my one and only polish from Ninja Polish. but it certainly won't be my last.

     Trying to describe this polish is a bit tricky for me because every time I look at it I see something new. At first glance of the bottle you see a sparkle red polish, but once on the nail, you see so much more. The multi-chrome polish shift from red, to green, to orange and yellow. I even caught a glimpse of purple leaning magenta flashes at one point.


      The application on this one is a bit fussy if you're not used to sheer at first polishes. If you're going for even coverage on the first coat chances are you'll end up with some dragging. It's best to use multiple thin coats and let the beauty build. I have to admit that on the first coat I was a little nervous because the polish was so sheer and very purple leaning magenta. Which was a gorgeous color but I was looking forward to the gorgeous red I saw in the bottle. Turns out I had nothing to fear. Divinity builds up nicely and I reached full opacity and the red color I wanted after 2 coats.  Depending on how thinly you apply your polish you may need a 3rd coat.

     I should know after all these years to not expect what I see in the bottle to be what I see on the nail. Indie Makers are getting so good at mixing all the different pigments and glitters to create unique and interesting nail polishes.

       As if this polish isn't rich enough on its own, I had to add a stamped accent nail. I decided on something simple but rich looking to go along with the decadent feel of Divinity.


     I used Milani Black Swift and Bundle Monster plate bm-309 for my finished look. What do you think? I enjoyed wearing Divinity so much that I wore it as a pedicure too. One of the few times that my toes matched my nails. And I can't forget the quick and simple dotticure I did using Divinity as an accent.

     I hope you enjoyed my first post back. It was a little rough going in places I know, but I'll get better as I write more posts.  Of course it doesn't help that I wrote my notes for this post almost 6 months ago and to be honest they weren't very good notes. Let me know in the comments what your must have Ninja Polish is whether you own it or it's on your wish list. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
