Review and swatches of Darling Diva polishes (Ménage à Trois, BJ, Leprechaun's Gold, Sugar Rush)

Hello lovelies,

My days of exploring indie brands continue, today I'll show you four Darling Diva polishes. I've got here awesome neon glitter polish, one for St. Patrick's Day and two Valentine's Day polishes!

Carrie created the Darling Diva brand in March 2012 and since then produced number of drool-worthy polishes. Carrie says: "I have a passion for polish and love putting things together to satisfy my sweet tooth for all things glitter :)".



Sugar Rush - mix of big neon hex glitters in a clear base complemented with small square and fine rainbow glitters. Overall, an amazing mixture that just 'pops out' over white. I feel like I have neon confetti on my nails, it's so pretty! It applied easily but I did have to play a little bit with the glitter placement. Polish dried fast and in the end I've used topcoat to smooth the surface.

Leprechaun's Gold - fine green holographic glitter mixed with same-sized gold glitter in a clear base. I have applied one coat over Color Club Give Me A Hint and A England Camelot. Leprechaun's Gold has a high amount of glitter in it so the layer is quite dense. I think it would take three layers if applied alone. It dries fast but slightly gritty so I have used topcoat. It's a great polish for St. Patrick's Day!

BJ - medium pink linear holographic polish with bigger holo glitters. BJ is supposed to be a part of this year's Valentine's Day collection. It has a good formula that goes on easily not like some holos that are patchy. I'm wearing two thicker coats which were enough for a full coverage. It dried fast with Seche Vite topcoat. Very nice holo creation, the extra glitters add something interesting to it.

Ménage à Trois - mix of different colour hex glitters in a light pink jelly base. The polish is very sparkly in real life. I wanted to show you swatches alone and later also over black base. This is three coats and topcoat and as you can see the polish is not fully opaque. It's much better for layering. It dried quite fast and removal was harder as with all other glitters. This is the second polish from this year's Valentine's Day collection.

The quality of the polishes is good so even if you are not fan of any of these shades you check out Darling Diva Etsy Store and find some you'll like. I really liked Ménage à Trois and Sugar Rush and I'm eyeing some others like Cherubic, Bitches Have Birthdays, Ringer, Channelling Coco, Bazinga....OMG I'm lost, they are just gorgeous!!!

The regular price for a nail polish is $8 and as said before, you can buy them at Darling Diva Etsy Store. For updates visit Darling Diva Polish Facebook page.
