NOTD: Holographic french tip nail art

Thursday, November 20, 2014

I have some easy nail art to share with you tonight. I rarely show my bare nail; although I love the look. This easy nail art will be perfect for any season or outing.

I used Elevation Polish Tre Cime di Lavaredo for the tips. This gorgeous holographic gold is the perfect shade. Nail Vinyls french tip guides made this oh-so-easy. Then I added curved lines and dots with Elevation Aiguilles.

I love the simplistic appearance and the quick application of this nail art.

Dance Legend: Top coats with amazing shimmer

Monday, October 13, 2014


I have some amazing Dance Legend top coats to share with you today. I love these type of top coats. They add so many possibilities. Want to spruce up an existing manicure? How about adding an endless supply of colors with a top coat? Well, that's what these do...

I am going to start out by showing you three of the top coats. I will be sharing more of these beauties with you these week. 

Let's take a look at these mesmerizing, holographic-infused top coats. 

Dance Legend 601 top coat has an amazing array of green and blue holographic shimmer. I applied it over Fancy Gloss My Sailor. My Sailor is an amazing navy blue creme polish. I had no application issues with either of these polishes. And look at that amazing shimmer! I have always loved this color combination. This is two coats of My Sailor and one coat of Dance Legend 601.

Dance Legend 606 top coat has an amazing array of green and blue holographic shimmer. I applied it over Elevation Tettegouche. Tettegouche is an stunning chocolate brown creme polish. I had no application issues with either of these polishes. And it certainly adds some stunning shimmer! I have always loved this color combination. This is three coats of Tettegouche and one coat of Dance Legend 606.

Dance Legend 607 top coat has a primarily blue holographic shimmer. But there is quite the range of colors in that holographic sheen. I applied it over Fancy Gloss My Sailor. My Sailor is an amazing navy blue creme polish. I had no application issues with either of these polishes. This looks like a starry night sky. This is two coats of My Sailor and one coat of Dance Legend 607.

Darling Diva "Mr. DDP" - We Need To Talk swatches, review

Sunday, October 12, 2014


Darling Diva Polish is introducing a new line of polish. The Mr. DDP line. The first of these is "We Need To Talk." Ask anyone what hearing that phrase does to them and you are liable to get a range of answers - with the most common reaction being the urge to run far and run fast.

Let's take a look at this polish. It is a linear holographic sea foam green shade with an amazing pink shimmer. It also has iridescent flakies that add depth and dimension.

I used three thin coats for these swatches and I also used a coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC top coat.

This color is amazing and the overall effect is mesmerizing. The pink shimmer is oh-so-obvious in real life. But it is rather camera shy.

The charity polish - Red Friday, and the Salem Collection will also be available on October 17.

Darling Diva 'Salem' Collection swatches, review


Darling Diva Polish has done it again. The "Salem" collection will bewitch and beguile you. This collection of seven holographic polishes is inspired from the TV show "Salem."

These holographic polishes are amazing. They have a fantastic glowing holographic sheen that even shows up well in normal lighting. The formula is spot on. I only need two coats of each for the swatches below. I topped off these stunning polishes with a coat of Pryzmatic PETC top coat. I didn't have application issues with any of these.

What's my favorite one? I don't think I can even pick. Every time I think I had picked one, I swatched the next one and that one was my new fave.

Let's take a look at these gorgeous shades. 

Ashes, Ashes is a deep plum holographic shade. It's temptingly dark and delicious and shines bright with linear holographic shimmer. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC
top coat. I had no application issues.

Darling Diva Charity Polish 'Red Friday" shows support for deployed service members

Friday, October 10, 2014


Darling Diva is devoted to causes. She has released a charity polish for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). The DAV is a special cause for me. I served 11 years in the U.S. Air Force and all of these men and women hold a special place in my heart. 

Red Friday is a gorgeous holographic red polish that shines bright with prisms of light. 

This polish will be available for $15 and all, yes all, of the proceeds will go to the DAV. So you can support this amazing group and also receive a limited-edition, empowering nail polish. (Discount codes do not apply as this is a charity polish.)

 What is Red Friday? Americans are no longer silent, and are voicing their love for country and home in record breaking numbers. Wearing red on Fridays shows solidarity and support for our deployed troops. It will continue until the troops all come home. 
 
I know you want to get to the best part - the swatches. But let me tell you a little about the DAV.
The DAV is dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. They accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.
Okay, now let's take a look at this stunning polish. 

Red Friday is a bold red polish that is jam-packed with linear holographic shimmer and shine. The shimmer and shine are vibrant and stunning. The polish is exquisite even in normal lighting. I used two coats of polish for this swatch and topped it off with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014


The Colors by llarowe fall collection preorder launches on Friday, October 10. I have a few of them to share with you. But this one, oh this one pretty shade, deserves a post all to itself.


Sandy, We Aren't in Kansas Anymore is an amazing aquamarine blue with a healthy dose of holographic shimmer. The subtle shift to green is completely mesmerizing. I saw colors like this together in Jamaica and this complete reminds me of that. I just need the sand and sun to complete recreate that moment. Oh, and an ice cold drink.

But I digress, let's take a look at this amazing polish. Sandy, We Aren't in Kansas Anymore applied wonderfully. This is two coats with a top coat.
