Day 12's polish is quite unique, I'm interested to see what you all think of it! This polish is from the Candeo Colors Aruba Collection, and the names of all the polishes are in Papiamento; Divi Divi is named after the divi tree, which is native to Aruba. I've already shown two other polishes from this collection, Shelu Blou and Laman Brisa, so take a peek at those if you haven't already!
Candeo Colors Divi Divi is a brown crelly base packed with brown and gold microglitter and gold/green colour-shifting shimmer. I used three coats for opacity, along with one coat of Seche Vite since it dries to a satin finish. Formula was a little thick, a couple drops of thinner made it much more workable!
It's quite the interesting mix of colours, isn't it? My first thought when I saw this in the bottle was "This'll probably look like poop." (Makes me sound intelligent, right?) But honestly, the brown/green colour combination had me a little worried.
When I see this polish in the photos I'm not quite sold on it, but I remember being pleasantly surprised when I put it on! The certain tone of brown was quite flattering, and the shimmer added a nice glow!
I can honestly say that I had no clue that Candeo made any shimmer polishes until I received these to swatch. Apparently I'm not the only one who didn't know they existed; when you google this collection, the only swatches that come up are mine and those done by The Nail Polish Project. In any case, this collection is severely underrated, all of them are stunning! I have a couple more to post throughout the month, so keep an eye out!
The Candeo Colors Aruba Collection and other polishes are available through Llarowe and the Candeo Colors website; keep up to date on Facebook.
Now, honestly tell me what you think of this polish, inquiring minds want to know! Beautiful unique polish, or shimmery poop? :P
