How are you all? Sorry I've been awol for the last few days, I've been really busy and still struggling with my damn chest infection which now finally seems to be on its way out, yay! But I'm back now!
I've mentioned before that I'm a bit fan of supporting small, independent companies especially in the world of cosmetics. Darling Diva is one of those brands that I have been very impressed with. Run from an online Etsy store based in America, Darling Diva specialize in bold nail varnishes that are usually either holographic (yes, holographic!) or glitter based. The prices are incredibly good and postage is available virtually worldwide, also at a very fair rate.
So here are the colours I've been trying out from Darling Diva Polishes.
Reef Fish* is the only glitter polish that I tried from the Darling Diva Polishes range and I was really impressed. The bottle is totally packed with glitter pieces that float in a sea of lightly blue tinted polish as the base. I'll be honest, I had a little trouble with getting the glitter to settle on my nail. I'm one of these impatient people who always ends up trying to get one coat to give loadsss of glitter (hence the lumpy nail in the photos above) but I've tried again since and two thin layers gives a lover covering of glitter and avoids the lumps I had trouble with. I think the finished look of this polish is great for an accent nail and it makes me feel like I have jewels on my finger which is pretty fun :) Reef Fish is available to buy *here*
I have been really happy with the quality, longevity and colour of all four of these polishes, in fact I already have my eye on Channeling Coco and Unicorn Bath from the collection. The only place I can fault these at all is the quality of the label but I don't personally think that matters awfully as it's what's inside the bottle that matters with a nail polish.
What do you think? Will you be popping over to Darling Diva to take a look? Which of these is your favourite shade?
