Darling Diva – Chandelle

Well, I couldn’t get a good macro shot of this one !

Darling Diva‘s Chandelle is a pretty glittery polish in earthy greens and coppers, the coverage is very light, so I put this one on over O.P.I.’s My Vampire is Buff.

I went for two coats then a top coat. There is a bit of a curve to the lightest green hex glitter, but I’ve been told it has been reformulated. If it bothers you, it might be worth asking about that before you order. It’s not really really curly though, and I actually like the extra reflections that that details adds 🙂

The brush is pretty nice, standard but good quality. The formula, as always, is great, no sinking, no gloopiness, very very smooth !


I’ll be back with some real posts tomorrow, this is the last scheduled one while I’m on holiday back home in the UK 🙂 looking forward to seeing what you’ve all been up to !

April Challenge – Day 24 – Striping – Zoya Veruschka & Darling Diva Dreamy

Oh no, I’ve discovered another brand that is really hard to get a hold of  in France and that I am totally in love with !

I’m sure you all know Zoya. Well, I picked up Veruschka, a deep forest green with a matte velvet finish and it is beautiful. Lookie!


Zoya is pretty pricey in France (13€), but for a 15ml bottle, at least it feels worth it ! I used two coats, and it was soo smooth. Plus, this stuff dries faster than any other polish I have ever used! And not tacky-dry, totally rock-solid dry. 2 minutes after this manicure I cleaned and cooked mussels, and it didn’t do the polish any harm at all. Despite the microglitter, it removes pretty easily, I didn’t see any staining after a few days of wear.

For today’s tape mani, I added Dreamy by Darling Diva – this is a beautiful holo topcoat that I have yet to swatch properly. I kept it simple, but was pretty happy with the result :


Well, I’m afraid Naughty Kitty has decided it’s cuddle time now, and is literally climbing all over me, purring and bumping my face with hers. She’s probably right. So I’ll leave you with another photo under different lighting 🙂

April Challenge – Day 5 – Blue

Sorry I’m posting this a day late – I skipped blogging last night in favour of an early night, I’m sure you’ll all forgive me 🙂

Not everyone loves blue nails, but I do ! I couldn’t choose  – which blue to go for, so I went for a Skittles mani, and topped it all off with Darling Diva – Unicorn Bath. Simple, but I love it 🙂

Day 5 - Blue

For the base colours, I used Essie – Butler Please and Topaz of Luxury and White (Models Own Pro).

Darling Diva Swatches – Unicorn Bath and Anna

Well for the moment these are the last Darling Diva polishes I have to swatch for you. I hope you think they’re worth it… I certainly do !

I must admit, I would still be a fan, even if the polishes were twice the price, so let’s hope that Darling Diva don’t catch on to that, right?

The Etsy shop is on vacation for another couple of days, but there are other outlets listed, and you can ask Etsy to send you an email when it re-opens, if you’d like to check it out !

Today, I have Unicorn Bath and Anna for you – both blue polishes. I am a real sucker for a nice blue, and glitter, so these are both total winners for me…

Darling Diva Swatches – Magnifique and Blonde Tornado

I must say that so far, no indie polish brand that I have tried has disappointed ! Darling Diva was one of the first that I decided to try, and I’m ashamed to admit, I have ordered a second time! I ordered 3 polishes, and Carrie was so kind, she added an exclusive for me to share with you !

I have two for you now, and I’ll let you hang on for the other two another time (though you probably won’t be waiting long!)
