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 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!)

Darling Diva Swatches – Channeling Coco, Persephone & Space Beetle

As if I needed to get hooked on another brand, I’ve found that I actually can get indie polishes delivered ! (apparently it’s a different postman, one that actually does his job!). So I’ve got a few indie swatching sessions coming up for you ! Now, I make a point of letting all sellers of indie polish know that I’m intending to review them, so they can opt out if they so wish. As these brands are so new, and so personal, I don’t want to step on any toes ! I love polish, and I consider investing in these to be just like any other sale. So I usually wait until I have received the order before saying I’d like to share on my blog. No pressure ! So far, no-one has said that they would rather not be reviewed. So that’s good news for you guys 🙂

Darling Diva was the first one that got delivered. Dispatch was extremely speedy, and Carrie’s kind enough to not just let me, but encourage me to share these with you!

So here we go …
