Ready For My Close-Up!

What I haven't done for a while is introducing a new (for me) nail polish brand in the blog. Here we go, a first post about Dare To Wear, a brand many of you guys know well already, yet a discovery for me. I grabbed a bottle at Nevskiye Berega 2013 Beauty Expo, a rare case when I just bought a polish without preliminary googling. But Dare To Wear Ready For My Close-Up was totally worth it!

Ready For My Close-Up is a dense purple glitter in a blurplish jelly base with some pink and holographic glitter particles. Application was smooth, opacity was reached with 2 coats and I also liked the long thin brush. Later I applied SV on top and it "eated up" the nail tips : (

I should say that with the different light the polish will look more blue or more purple. I saw swatches where it looks completely dark, closer to black as well.

Under the sun the tiny holo particles show up, creating a scattered sparkling effect. I'm afraid I couldn't catch all the beauty on the pictures...

What do you think of Dare To Wear? Do you own any of DTW polishes? Any musthaves you can recommend?

    1. Totally agree, this one is amazing! I'm not sure where these polish come from, US most probably, but the fact is that they have a great colour palette!

  5. that's really interesting glitter! i like it! i also like the name - i believe it's a quote from that classic old movie Sunset Boulevard! it's in black&white though but quite impressive also - just like the polish:)

    1. Thank you! You must be right, since the collection it's called "Vintage Hollywood". I've never watched Sunset Boulevard, shame on me, but now after your comment I wanna watch it immediately :) :)

  8. I own two DTW polishes that I got through a swap and I absolutely loved them! The formula was great even though they are a little on the sheer side. But definitely a yes-brand!

  11. Non ho mai sentito questa firma di smalti, davvero molto bello e brillante. Devo dire che assomiglia un pò a Frenzy della Sinful Colors

    1. I understood your comment, but I cannot answer in Italian :) weird that you haven't heard of DTW, you should try this brand! You are right, it's similar to Sinful Colours Frenzy, maybe DTW is more opaque! :)
