Darling Divas: Like a Virgin

Wow.. i'm to the last review of this series.
I have to say, all in all, Darling Diva Polish has become one of my favorite stores.
Not just because they have fantastic polishes, decent prices, and fun combos, but also because the customer service is extraordinary, and you can tell she totally loves what she does.

Now.. onward and upward.

This last one from the Madonna line is called "Like a Virgin". I LOVE the classic combo of white and silver. There are tiny white circles, little silver flecks, large silver circles, white bars, and some cute little white hearts throughout! My favorite part about this one? The BLUE! Do you see them?! The little blue pieces floating willy nilly.. just adding a FUN little FLAVOR to this polish I haven't seen in others. Definitely unique and full of flair! (Just like Madonna!)

I got quite a few compliments on this manicure. Heck, if i saw someone wearing it, i would say something, too. It's very "out of the box". And again, even though it looks super dense in the bottle, it's just the right coverage once it's on!

I put 2 layers on my pinky, and i felt like piling on more. HAHA. And for me, that's funny, because I do not generally glob on glitter! :)

I hope you all enjoyed the Darling Diva series on the blog..
AND I hope you hop on over to the Facebook page, if you haven't yet!

Darling Divas: Holiday

For the second manicure in my Darling Diva Polish blog lineup.. is a fun circle glitter called Holiday.. also in the Madonna line :)

I got SO many compliments on this one!!
I was torn on what color to use as a base, because there are so many fun colors in the glitter itself, I opted for a nice neutral white and gray.

The colors in this glitter really POPPED!
And it's SUCH a smooth application.. even with bedazzling my pinky, it didn't take much to get all the glitters I wanted!

AND with it having so many colors, and a great complimenting personality (did I just say nail polish has a personality?!), it really is a universal glitter.
Great for wear.. it barely had any wear signs (chipping, etc) by the time I decided to change my mani. I would say if you like this (which.. really.. you'd be a fool not to).. head over to her store and grab a bottle!! :)
follow her on Facebook to keep up with all the awesomeness of her store
and shop the polishy goodness on Etsy.

Keep an eye out for the last Darling Diva review coming up soon!

Darling Divas: Wild Child

Darling Diva Polish just came out with a new Madonna line..
and i got this package in the mail.. AHHH! so fun! all glitters!
couldn't WAIT to dive in.

Darling Diva polish has been a favorite of mine since i was gifted with Bazinga almost a year ago. SO EXCITED to be able to review for her!

Me and some friends are doing a fun Nail Art Event every month, and this package landed right smack dab at the perfect time to do skittle nails!
Wild Child.. is PERFECT for this.

All the fun colors, shapes and sizes in this glitter.. go so well with many different color polishes.
I used it over green, blue, yellow and pink. And on the pinky, i did 4 layers of it by itself.

I like the consistency of it.. I like that the glitters are not "uniform".. And it's easy to apply. The only thing I was worried about was that it looked like REALLY dense glitter, but once I started painting, it really gave just the right coverage!

When it dries, you can feel the glitters on top of your nail, even with top coat. BUT I think it makes it a great texture.. without being too much. The glitters don't stick up at all, or "taco", it doesn't make me feel like peeling it off. And since texturized polishes is hot right now.. i think it totally fits and works. :) And i'm not a "texture" freak either. I prefer my nails to be smooth and shiny. But i love this.

I'm looking forward to showing/telling you what i think of the other two as well over the next week! STAY TUNED!
