Darling Diva Awesomeness!

Hello lovely people out there! Is everyone ready for Halloween? Do you have special plans? Since my kids are older, we usually buy candy and sit around watching scary movies and hand out candy. I love to see all the little ones in their costumes. I may dress up this year, I haven't decided yet (procrastinator, I know!).

Today I have some lovely Darling Diva polishes to show you. Darling Diva is one of my favorite indie brands out there. I have a total of 26 of her polishes, and I am always on the hunt for more. There is such a beautiful variety of finishes to chose from too! She has holos (both scattered and linear), glitters, glitter toppers, glow in the dark, and even thermals. While I did capture pictures of one of the GITD polishes, I forgot to take pictures of it glowing, so I decided to leave that out of this post and will do it another time. You can visit the Darling Diva store here to see what goodies she has and make a purchase.

First up is Zen Pool. Zen Pool was the first Darling Diva polish I  purchased. It is super pretty! It is described on the Darling Diva page as, "a beautiful creamy shimmery tealy blue crelly base with various round pink (two sizes) and white round glitters with some added larger matte hexes in a pale blue and to that I added a scatter of teal holographic glitters". She also warns that a good basecoat is needed due to staining. I have both used, and not used a basecoat with this polish and I never had any staining, but as we all know, everyone has different body chemistry and different results. For this photo, I used a Sally Hansen Insta Dry polish as my base. It is called "Blue Away". I have two coats of Zen Pool on top.
Here is the photo:
Next up is Soap Poisoning. This is a beautiful crelly white polish with very light colored pastel glitters in it. There also is some beautiful shimmer to this polish. I did one coat over Zoya Blu. It appears this polish is discontinued, however, I still enjoy showing you the discontinued polishes because you may see it on someone's swap or sale board.
These last two polishes made me ooooo and ahhhh when I had them on!
First we have Purple Rain from the Prince collection. It is described on the Darling Diva page as, "Dark Purple with blue overtones and a lovely soft slightly linear shift." Since this polish is not made with Spectraflair, she can offer it at a lower cost than some holo polishes. It goes on very nicely and I only needed two coats to make it nice and opaque. My photos show the polish as a more pink colored finish, but I can assure you there is a purple and pink shift in there with the blue overtones.

Finally, we have We Will Rock You form the Queen collection. It is a multichrome polish of awesomeness!!! We Will Rock You was LE polish from the Queen collection. I am so happy I was able to get my grubby little digits on it when I did!
