As you may already know, Dashing Diva has about 100 new polishes in their Manhattan collection which was released a couple months ago. I reviewed some back in December I believe and liked them a lot so I have some more to review!
I really love Dashing Diva, their colors are fabulous and they don’t stick to one “genre” like boring work colors or neutrals. Their formula is really spot on, I never have issues with them. There are two parts to this saga and part one which I am showing today is the more “classic” of the set. These are all variances on the color red and two in particular I really love. Pics taken in sun with no top coat.
5″ Heels is a really great bright orange/red shimmery frost. The shimmer is gold colored and very subtle. I think this polish would look great on a wide variety of skin tones because it’s kind of middle of the road in terms of cool and warm. This was three coats.
China Town is a pretty blue based red with a jelly like formula. It also has a frosty finish. This one I think suits cooler skin tones better because of the blue in it. This was also three coats.
Stock Exchange is a deeper, slightly more “vampy” red creme. You might be able to tell this was a bit streaky on me, but then again I wasn’t using a base coat. This red is also blue based and this is three coats.
Mulberry Street really isn’t “red” per se, it’s more of a grape/pink. I LOVE this color and trust me, this pic doesn’t do it justice. It’s super shimmery with a hint of frost and just gorgeous on, like a jewel. This is one of those lit from within colors. This is three coats.
Jet-Set is my fav of this bunch. I LOVEEEEEEEE this! It reminds me a lot of Lippmann’s Bitches’ Brew but isn’t a dupe. The color is a beautiful deep ruby red with a glow about it like candles are floating above it making it sparkle. Ok that sounds wacky but trust me, it’s THAT nice! This is three coats.
You can find Dashing Diva polishes here and they retail for $8.00
