Daring Digits - Why So Serious? and Down by the Sea


Hi Everyone!! The good news is that today I have 2 more amazing Daring Digits colors to show you!!  The bad news is that one is LE and I don't think it will be sold again due to supply issues :-(  But it's too pretty not to share, so let's all cross our fingers that more will be made in the future!  You can purchase from her shop,

Anyway, first up is Why So Serious? which just makes be think of Heath Ledger the Joker in Dark Knight!  He did so well in that role!  He was a great actor, so sad he is gone! 

This color is a dark and shimmery plum purple that is sprinkled with green shimmer and green hexagons.  This applied extremely well, almost in 1 coat!  I did use two for the pictures along with Seche Vite top coat.


And here is the bottle shot comparison!  I don't franken, so when the old version separated, I was completely amazed!  Because when I would shake it, it becomes purple again! LOL So I had to share that with you guys, the little things in life that capture my attention to amaze me. ;-)  The new version is thicker from what I remember when swatching the other one.  I don't think I took pics, so I can reswatch if anyone wants a comparison.  But believe me, Ashley's new base is awesome ;-) 

As I mentioned, she was kind enough to redo my bottles because of the base shortage and this base wasn't up to her standards.  I love that she goes out of her way to make sure the customer receives nothing but the best!  She is so nice and helpful too!   And she announced on her Etsy page that she is getting married this weekend!  A HUGE congrats to her!  So if you don't receive your orders, that is why ;-)

Next up is the Limited Edition Down by the Sea.  I have been so in love with my Zoya Kristen, that I had to put these two together.  I used 2 coats of Zoya Kristen, you can see other manis I've done HERE and HERE.  I then used 1 coat of Down by the Sea along with 1 coat of Wicked Fast.

This polish has a gorgeous color shift from a blue to purple, along with blue glitter that is almost holographic changing to teal and other colors!  It is simply stunning in person and I'm glad I was lucky to snag one.  I do hope more can be made!  Everyone should own this!

There are a lot of awesome new colors, some were even listed last night!  THIS one reminds me of others I've seen from brands lately!  I love it!  Go check out her shop,

I hope you have a great day!!

Much Love,


  1. Of course Down By The Sea is the one I love most :(. Wish I could get it.

  2. Great posts! I have a few of her polishes with major settling issues, making me not want to buy from her again. You are saying she has fixed the "settling" problem? Also...I want Down by the Sea!!!

  3. These are both so stunning! Luckily though I love Why So Serious? more ;)
