Barry M Gelly Prickly Pear Meets ...... Darling Diva Carrie

Hi Goddesses

Today is a lovely combination, totally fairyish :)  It's the sublime Pricky Pear, layered with a topper from Darling Diva.

Ok, Prickly Pear first.  From the very first photos of the Gellies, THIS was the polish I wanted to try.  I had high hopes for her, and she did not disappoint.

Light as a feather, fluffy as a cloud, Prickly Pear is just dreamy. 

However, this is the LEAST opaque of the Gellies, and required 3 coats.  I think once I've used it a couple of times and it's thickened slightly, I should be able to get away with 2.

Frankly, I have no idea whasoever what a Prickly Pear is, but I do so love this polish.  I think this is one of those "comfort polishes" a lot of us will reach for when we need something to make us feel good.

And so on to Carrie from Darling Diva.  I've bought a few polishes from this seller (store HERE) but this is the first one that's made it to the blog.   Her polishes have a lot of creativity, and they're not all glitters; she especially stocks a lot of holos.   I also feel very warmly towards her just cos her contact name is CerealKiller lol.

Carrie is a beauty.  Opalescent flakes suspended in a juicy violet jelly (not really dark enough to become opaque).   This just twinkles and sparkles on the nail like girly fairylight.

There's a lot of My Little Pony vibing out of this mani lol, and it's also like a tweenies party in fairy discoland.   I think these 2 polishes mesh perfectly, one adding to the dreamy girliness of the other.  The glitter is the very definition of subtlety, barely there, yet glowing like fireflies.

In the bottle, this is pure fairy jelly, spectral and full of wonder.   Alzarine Claws (another great blog) has also worn this this week and raptured about it.   Personally, I can't wait to try it over a dark base, just to see what happens to those yummy pearly squares :)

Enjoy xx :)
