Showing posts with label glitter

Hello lovelies,

I didn't blog yesterday and it feels like I took a huge break :D I've got loads of swatches and nail art ready I just need to write the blog posts. I don't know about you but I love swatching, doing nail art, don't mind editing the pictures but when it comes to sitting down and writing the blog post I suddenly get really lazy  :D And the same about editing videos unfortunately. I have to video tutorials ready to be edited but I hate it sooo much! That's why you don't see more of them and I'm sorry. I know how many of you ask for tutorials and I just can't make myself to edit them :-/ Anyway that's what's on my mind :D

Let's get to the nail polish of the day. I couldn't resist and I finally purchased my first Lush Lacquers from their Etsy Store. This is one coat of Glitter Girl applied over topcoated China Glaze Split Perso-nail-ity. It consists of black and white glitter, small purple glitter and red&white; squares. The formula was on the thicker side and there is A LOT of glitter in the bottle. I've had to use topcoat to get smooth surface as the glitter makes it uneven.

Overall I was happy with my purchase, it is a very nice glitter mix.

Hello lovelies,

My days of exploring indie brands continue, today I'll show you four Darling Diva polishes. I've got here awesome neon glitter polish, one for St. Patrick's Day and two Valentine's Day polishes!

Carrie created the Darling Diva brand in March 2012 and since then produced number of drool-worthy polishes. Carrie says: "I have a passion for polish and love putting things together to satisfy my sweet tooth for all things glitter :)".

Sugar Rush - mix of big neon hex glitters in a clear base complemented with small square and fine rainbow glitters. Overall, an amazing mixture that just 'pops out' over white. I feel like I have neon confetti on my nails, it's so pretty! It applied easily but I did have to play a little bit with the glitter placement. Polish dried fast and in the end I've used topcoat to smooth the surface.

Leprechaun's Gold - fine green holographic glitter mixed with same-sized gold glitter in a clear base. I have applied one coat over Color Club Give Me A Hint and A England Camelot. Leprechaun's Gold has a high amount of glitter in it so the layer is quite dense. I think it would take three layers if applied alone. It dries fast but slightly gritty so I have used topcoat. It's a great polish for St. Patrick's Day!

BJ - medium pink linear holographic polish with bigger holo glitters. BJ is supposed to be a part of this year's Valentine's Day collection. It has a good formula that goes on easily not like some holos that are patchy. I'm wearing two thicker coats which were enough for a full coverage. It dried fast with Seche Vite topcoat. Very nice holo creation, the extra glitters add something interesting to it.

Ménage à Trois - mix of different colour hex glitters in a light pink jelly base. The polish is very sparkly in real life. I wanted to show you swatches alone and later also over black base. This is three coats and topcoat and as you can see the polish is not fully opaque. It's much better for layering. It dried quite fast and removal was harder as with all other glitters. This is the second polish from this year's Valentine's Day collection.

The quality of the polishes is good so even if you are not fan of any of these shades you check out Darling Diva Etsy Store and find some you'll like. I really liked Ménage à Trois and Sugar Rush and I'm eyeing some others like Cherubic, Bitches Have Birthdays, Ringer, Channelling Coco, Bazinga....OMG I'm lost, they are just gorgeous!!!

The regular price for a nail polish is $8 and as said before, you can buy them at Darling Diva Etsy Store. For updates visit Darling Diva Polish Facebook page.
