Darling Diva: Pop Back to the 80s Collection swatches, review.

Monday, March 16, 2015


The creators at Darling Diva have been busy little bees. Now that it is springtime out there, it's time to think of bright cheery colors that match the season. Not that you can't wear the darker colors - of course you can. But this time of year always has me longing for sunsational shades.

This collection "Pop Back to the 80s" fits the bill. Five neon holographic polishes and a glitter topcoat are the perfect salute to the season.

These polishes applied flawlessly and evenly. 

Let's take a look. I applied a couple of these over white polish. But for the majority of them I didn't.

P.C. is a gorgeous cornflower blue with lots of holographic goodness. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. You know I always lean toward blue shades and this one is no exception.

Pretty Bit is a berry orchid shade with a liberal sprinkling of holographic sparkle. This polish looks great indoors, but definitely likes to play in the sun. This is three coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I did apply this one over white polish.

Puffball is my favorite of the bunch. This neon hot pink is stunning! It is definitely shy in the bottle, but once it is applied its true colors definitely shine through. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC.

Punkity is a light green holographic polish with citrine yellow tendencies. Indoors it's mainly a neon light green. But get it outdoors and the yellow gold is prominent. This is three coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC.

Big Kick is a black and white glitter top coat. The glitters are swimming in loads of holographic particles. Wear this one over any color to add some pop and attitude. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC.

Darling Diva St. Patrick's Day Collection swatches

Wednesday, February 11, 2015


The creators at Darling Diva have done it again. The release of the St. Patrick's Day Collection is Friday, February 3, 2015 and these polishes are based on limericks. 

There once was a polish maker named Carrie, 
Who liked to play on the prairie.
Her sweetheart was Rick,
And he had a quite a trick...

Alright ladies, get your mind out of the gutter. He has quite a trick of naming polishes. 

OK, I digress. Back to the polish. 

This five-polish collection is all green and is sure to give you nails of a leprechaun. Let's take a look. The sun decided to stay behind the clouds, so these photos are taken in artificial lighting.

A Newlywed Couple From Paris is a linear mid-toned green holographic with holographic shimmer and stunning flakes. It has an amazing gold shimmer to it. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no issues with application. This is the perfect leprechaun green.

Ever Heard of Naughty Wife from St. Paul? is a stunning hunter green linear holographic polish. I love the holo sheen of this polish and the deep green is phenomenal. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no issues with application.

In the Garden of Eden Sat Eve is full of leprechaun magic. It is cram packed with green and gold micro glitters. The sparkle is mesmerizing and completely a Type A personality. There is no shyness in this polish. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no issues with application.

On the White Cliffs of Dover Sat a Poet is a bright, medium green polish that is simply amazing. It has color shifting flakes, gold flakes and holographic shimmer. I think this is my favorite of the bunch. It's bright enough to be the star of the show, but the flakes and shimmer tone it down a bit. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no issues with application.

There Once Was a Man from Nantucket is a color shifting emerald green polish with color shifting flakes. It is on the thinner side to allow the flakes to show their full glory. It can be built to opacity - this is three coats - or layered over another polish. I had no issues with application.

Darling Diva: Valentine Day Collection swatches, review

Tuesday, January 20, 2015


The creators at Darling Diva have been busy. The release of the Valentine Day Collection is Friday, January 23, 2015 and these polishes are based on bad pick-up lines. We've all heard them and we still find them funny.

The formula on these is great. But I will give you details on each polish.

Let's take a look at this collection.

Are You Medusa? Because You Make Me Rock Hard! is a delicious wine red scattered holo. The kind of holographic polish that seems lit from within. It will be perfect for that romantic Valentine Day celebration - whether you are enjoying your alone time or spending it with that special someone. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no issues with application.

Hey Baby! Wanna Make a Big Mistake? is a bright red jelly that is full of flakes, iridescent glitters and holographic shimmer. The shifts in the glitter and flake accents are amazing. This polish has many personalities depending on the angle and lighting. This is three coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no issues with application.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Let's do it in my Car is a vibrant metallic polish with holographic shimmer and sparkle. The sheen is perfectly balance. There's not too much metallic and the holo shimmer is subtly classy. This is a thirsty polish so unless you want a satin or semi matte finish you will need a top coat. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no issues with application.

Nice Shoes! Wanna F***? is a soft muted pink shade with holographic sparkle. This shade is perfect for a quiet night and then straight into a morning meeting. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. It did dry a bit gritty, but a top coat smoothed it out completely.

That Dress Would Look Great on my Bedroom Floor! is a deep black polish with tons of multi-colored shimmer and holographic sparkle. But it seems the only shimmer that wanted to come out to play with the camera was the blue and silver. Believe me - there's a lot of colors there! I think this is my favorite of the collection. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no issues with application.

My Doctor Says I'm Lacking Vitamin U is the only limited-edition polish in the collection. It's a white crelly with multi shaped and colored glitter. It has stars, hearts, octagon and round muted color glitters. This is three coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. I had no real issues with application. The glitter didn't require fishing and for the most part it rested flat against the nail. Although some of the large glitters did tend to stick up a bit. But that is pretty typical of large glitters with shapes.
