Darling Diva Polish: Swatches & Review

 Fair warning: this post is picture-heavy and full of an insane amount of glittery awesomeness. 


I've got three polishes from Darling Diva Polish to show you today; Dusky Sky, Tiny Bubbles, and Vegas Showgirl. 



Fist off I've got Dusky Sky, a gorgeous sky-blue holographic polish.  Holos aren't normally my cup of tea, but holy cow, this is gorgeous!  It applied like a dream, three thin coats and no top coat.  The formula on this was so perfect and easy to work with that I didn't need to do any clean-up at all!  I honestly wasn't expecting to love this one as much as I do!

Next up, we've got Tiny Bubbles; a mix of small hex, medium hex and square, and large hex white matte glitters and medium light blue hex glitters in a teal-blue jelly base with micro holo glitter.  Phew, that's a mouthful.  (Who's with me on the "Hooray for matte white glitter!" bandwagon?) This one did require a little bit of fishing and placing glitter, but I think that's to be expected when you're dealing with glitters like this.  I did manage to get out two of the large hexes without trying too hard. 

Here I've layered two coats of Tiny Bubbles over a few different polishes.  Index to pinky: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On (1 coat), OPI Yodel Me On My Cell (2 coats), OPI No Room For The Blues (1 coat), and Darling Diva Polish Dusky Sky (3 coats).  I didn't use a top coat for the pictures, though I think you'd need two layers of a thick top coat to smooth it out. All of the glitter just blends in over the white on my index finger, unfortunately.  Out of the other three, I can't decide which one I like the best!  Which is your favourite layering combo? 








Last for today we have Vegas Showgirl.  This amazing glitterbomb is a mix of medium green hexes and purple squares, small green squares and purple hexes, and purple and green micro-glitter in a clear base.  The formula on this one was very easy to work with, and I didn't have any trouble with placing the glitters.  A few of the squares curled, but two thick coats of Seche Vite smoothed it all out.  


On my index and middle fingers, I did one coat of Vegas Showgirl each over Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac  (2 coats) and Orly Jealous, Much? (3 coats).  As you can see, you get pretty good glitter coverage with just one easy coat.  


On my ring and pinky fingers, I did two coats of Vegas Showgirl each over Zoya Savita (2 coats) and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black Out (1 coat).  Pictures show no top coat. 


Take a look; how awesome is this?  Which one's your favourite? 








Darling Diva polish is available to buy on their Etsy store, and you can like their Facebook page for updates and lots of polish pictures.  She is restocking and opening her store again this Sunday (7/1) so be sure to check it out and snatch yourself up a few of these beauties! :)

Any guesses as to which polish/layering combo I put on for my whole mani?  You'll see tomorrow ;)
