Van Dieman’s Diamonds are a Girl’s BFF on Midori MD


Van Dieman’s Diamonds are a Girl’s BFF is part of the Hollywood series. The ink is inspired by the dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

It is a shimmer ink so you need to shake the bottle before filling up your pen. I didn’t expect the shimmer to settled so quickly and the first time I filled up the pen, I didn’t get a lot of shimmer. The ink colour is a dark pink, almost purplish, and shows a lovely shading. It has a good consistent flow and I didn’t experience any clotting or hard starts. The shimmer is a pain to clean out of the pen, but that’s probably the case with all shimmer inks.
