Darling Diva's Purple Heart shines bright for veterans

Thursday, September 18, 2014


Darling Diva is devoted to causes. She has released a charity polish for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). This is a special cause for me. Not many of you know, but I am a disabled American veteran. I spent 11 years in the U.S. Air Force. All of these men and women hold a special place in my heart. 

Purple Heart is a gorgeous holographic purple polish that shines bright with prisms of light. 

This polish will be available for $17 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.)

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 awe inspiring polish.

Purple Heart is a deep purple holographic polish that emits blue, purple, rosy red and gold prisms of light. It was a dream to apply. This is two coats with a top coat of Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC. There are lots of photos below. The polish has a wide range of color shifts.














Follow Darling Diva Polish on Facebook and Instagram. You can purchase this amazing polish from the Darling Diva Polish BigCartel store. While this polish was sent to me for review, I will be purchasing some extra bottles for my fellow veterans.

This polish was sent to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 

Different Dimension Heavy Metals Collection swatches, review


Holographic polishes can be compared to elusive unicorns. They are rather shy at times, but thrive in sunlight. These polishes from Different Dimension come to life in sunlight and bright light. They are gorgeous in low lighting too. This new "Heavy Metals" collection is perfect for fall weather. Actually, it's fitting for any season or function. It will be for sale September 26, 2014.

They applied easily and dried to a high-gloss, shimmer finish in no time. Let's take a look. These photos are taken in different lighting.

All That Glitters is Not Gold is a stunning yellow gold holographic polish with added shimmer. This reminds me of antiqued gold. It isn't an "in your face" bright gold. It's classy and perfect for any place you want to wear it. This is two coats with no top coat. Look at that rainbow of color in the linear holographic shimmer.
