Ever since I qualified I have heard of Dashing Diva but at the time I had made it my focus to invest the little money I had into Shellac, I just don't see the point in getting dribs and drabs of different systems.
After watching a demonstration by Amelia Redhead (CND Education Ambassador) at Creative Academy+ Manchester, I finally decided to invest in it. Like usual, I was ridiculously excited to get stuck in. I currently have twelve different designs ranging from a full nail cover (which can be cut anyway you like,) to tattoos and accents. I plan on doing a full video on them in the future but for now I just wanted to make today's post a 'nail of the day.'
Here I am wearing Shellac Lush Tropics, Bicycle Yellow with Tropic Sunrise Additive over it, Silver Chrome with a silver holographic foil over it and then my new Dashing Diva Accents in True Enchantment on the ring finger.
The Accents are so easy to apply and are extremely effective. I applied it with pointed tweezers that I use for semi permanent lashes and it was fairly straight forward. I will be trying the full nail effects shortly so I shall reserve judgement on them now but I'm hoping that they are as easy to use. Once I had applied the Gelife base coat and top coat it is completely smooth and seals the edges so that you can't feel them.
I also thought I'd include this photo to show you of my friend's nails. The Accents matched an outfit for a wedding she was going to so she was my first 'taker' of them. I think it looks beautiful over her extensions and she has since told me that quite a few people at the wedding commented on them.
My only issue that that I wish Dashing Diva had a wider selection. There are many stunning designs but there are only a handful for the Accents range so I hope in the future that they do release more.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed today's little post. Once I've played around with them more I shall definitely make my video on them.
