The Don Deeva Sporca Puttana

Sporca Puttana was released last month by Florida-based indie polish maker The Don Deeva as a stand-alone polish. As with most of Danette's creations, the name here is every bit as colorful and evocative as the polish itself, which is a microglitter bomb featuring a bright, multicolored mix of magenta, green and blue metallic microglitters in a magenta-tinted base. The general appearance is of a dark purple similar to Byzantium, flecked Pointillist-style with tiny dots of color. Very cool! In the sun, the purple brightens and picks up aspects of violet and indigo, and the microglitters explode into a dense, scintillating field of brilliant sparkle in just about every color of the rainbow. 

Application was most agreeable! The consistency of Sporca Puttana is fluid and remarkably light for such a glitter-laden polish, with a medium consistency and a fluent, easy glide over the nail that appreciates a light touch for most even glitter distribution, especially on the first coat. The microglitters go on smoothly and lay flat to the nail, no stacking or stickups. Coverage is provided completely by the microglitters, which are so copiously packed that a wearably opaque look can be had in two medium coats, although I used three for the photos. I did my cleanup as I went along, and had no issues. Sporca Puttana dries naturally in very good time to a flat, sandy-textured finish that loves a dedicated glitter-smoothing topcoat to look its best. 

Photos show three coats of Sporca Puttana over ÜNT Ready for Takeoff peel-off basecoat. For maxiumum gloss, I used a layer of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze followed by a layer of Seche Vite.

Sporca Puttana is fairly stealthy for a multicolored microglitter bomb, retaining its deep, deceptively sober purple appearance in ambient light with only occasional, subtle hints of the tremendous sparkle power within. Give it any direct light, however, and it morphs into a rich, velvety, dimensional shade swimming with a veritable siren song of dazzling pinpoint sparks of color that twinkle and flash with every movement. Fantastic!
