Color and Finish
This is described as an "adventurously bold peacock teal." This is a true teal - toeing the line between blue and green perfectly. This polish is certainly bold! It looks a bit lighter in sunlight, but it was raining all day and couldn't get good outdoor pictures. In the bottle it looks a bit duochrome, but this does not show up on the nail. Instead. The metallic in this polish is incredibly deep which really helps to accentuate the beautiful color. Deviantly Daring manages to glow on its own. Truly stunning!
Application and Formula
I didn't have any issues with this. It applied very well. My brush did pick up more product than usual, so you definitely need to swipe it across the side of the bottle before applying. This dried quite quickly and had a beautiful shine all on its own. Deviantly Daring was almost a one-coater, but I used two in the swatches here. Typically, teals stain my nails like crazy, but I didn't have any problems with. Very impressive!
Overall, I am extremely pleased to add this to my collection. I was a bit disappointed initially that this wasn't a duo-chrome, as that is what I was expecting from the bottle, but the color itself is such a rich and beautiful metallic that I was very satisfied. Also, I am a sucker for anything peacock related, and this shade is definitely a peacock teal! What are your thoughts on the New Bohemian collection?
