Indie: Darling Diva Polish Christmas Collection swatches, and others
Disclosure: The following polishes were provided to me for swatching.
Hi guys! Another quick spam post, this time from Darling Diva Polish.
I've got her Holiday/Christmas collection which is inspired by 'A Christmas Story'. Don't stone me - I haven't seen the movie!!
If you're interested in any of these, head on over to Darling Diva Polish @ Etsy.
DDP A Christmas Story (3 coats in its own) - Red and green microglitter, with a flash of blue (possibly holo glitters?). This one definitely needs topcoat to shine to really shine, but cmon, does anyone not put topcoat on indie polishes??
DDP A Christmas Story (2 coats) over a-england Perceval
DDP You'll Shoot Your Eye Out (1-2ish coats) over CND Midnight Sapphire - Really interesting combination of glitters. Sometimes I got a lot of glitter on the brush, and other times little, so give the brush a good swirl in the bottle before each nail!
DDP Soap... Poisoning (1 coat) over OPI DTMT - Beautiful and difficult to photograph. White jelly base with lots of iridescent disco glitter. Very soft and pretty.
DDP FUUUUUUUUUUDGE!!!!! (1 coat) over ChG Ingrid - A smorgasbord of glitters!
DDP FUUUUUUUUUUDGE!!!!! (1 coat) over SH CSM Fedora - I'm not sure if I have the right number of "U"s or "!"s in my caption. Sorry. LOL
DDP I'm Your Huckleberry (2 coats over Essie Film Noir) - this one is super pretty
And 5 other polishes, not part of the Christmas collection:
DDP Sugar Rush (2 coats over Nails Inc Baker Street) - mix of neon translucent glitter, larger disco glitter (I think?) and small holo glitter particles. The base is actually clear, but all the translucent neon glitters make it look a little funny in the bottle!
DDP The Big "O" (2 coats over Essie Go Overboard) - not my best layering combination, but I had a hard time coming up with an underwear colour. Lots of disco glitters in this one, leaning warm, though.
DDP Seriously Serious (2 coats over Essie Film Noir) - warmer purple IRL!! You know how purples photograph. Pretty opaque purple and green glitter polish with holo sparkle. You could do 3 coats to opaqueness, I think.
DDP Snow Bunny (2 coats over Zoya Dana.. or Essie Watermelon, I can't remember now) - mix of neon transparent glitter, white glitter, and disco glitter in a sheer pink base
DDP Snow Bunny (2 coats over black jelly franken)
DDP Dook At Me (2 coats over OPI DTMT) -holo with disco glitter. The yellow reflections are not yellow; they just photograph that way!
