Darling Diva Killer Queen


Wonderful nail polish by Darling Diva.  Killer Queen is a perfect 2-coater purple to blue holographic lacquer that dries super fast.  Very easy to apply and there were no issues with the formula.  The color is wonderful too.  It immediately reminded me of another nail polish I have, so I pulled it out to do a comparison.  Sure enough, Killer Queen is a dupe to Enchanted Polish Time To Pretend.  They both have the same duochrome shift and holographic effect.  The only difference is that Killer Queen only requires 2 coats, while Time To Pretend requires 3 coats.  I really love purple so I'm probably keeping both.  I was contemplating a back up of TTP at some point, but not anymore.  The Enchanted appears a little bit darker in the pictures, but honestly on the nail, in real life it is almost impossible to tell them apart.
