Indie Wednesday: Darling Diva Polish, Take 1

Hello All!  I have a TON of Darling Diva Polishes to show off, so I’ve decided to split them into 2 posts.  Today I will feature Cotton Candy, Sophia, and Princess Luna!  Friday I’ll be showing off Ringer and Dangerous Driver.

Earlier this week, I had a big swatch-a-thon with all of these beautiful colors.  Everything looked nice in person, however, I’m not entirely happy with the photos for this particular post (I think Friday’s pictures look great though).  I already promised this write up for today, and I won’t be home tomorrow, so I wanted to go forward with posting.  But I think I’m going to retake some photos this weekend and add them in.

First up, we have Cotton Candy!

Cotton Candy is a pretty shade of pink, with various sizes and shapes of white glitter- but not a ton of glitter, so it gives the polish a dainty feel.   These photos were taken with 2 coats of polish.

I only used Cotton Candy for the photos, but I think next time I’ll try layering over a very similar pink (maybe Zoya Lara?)- since the second layer does cover up the first layer’s glitter almost completely.   Either way, you’ll have a beautiful look!


Next up, we have Sophia!

For Sophia, I opted to use an underwear coat of Love My Nails Electric Blue, with 2 coats of Sophia.

Sophia is a beautiful periwinkle blue fine glitter, sprinkled with the occasional gold holographic hex glitter.  I had to work to get the ones I did on my nail!  I’d say average use would be closer to 1-2 on each nail without any fishing.  This color would look beautiful over black or white, and I bet it would look pretty over a red for a patriotic look.


And last but certainly not least, we have Princess Luna!

Princess Luna is inspired by the lovely Nightmare Moon/Princess Luna of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  I’ve said it before, but I actually recommend MLP even for grownups.  Seasons 1 and 2 are available for streaming on Netflix, and they’re awesome.   Princess Luna is the sister to Princess Celestia, who is inspiration for another polish by Darling Diva Polish!

Much like her inspiration, the polish version of Princess Luna is a beautiful blue, full of sparkles, accented by deep purple and teal glitter, with a bit of white thrown in.

Like Sophia, I layered 2 coats over Love My Nails Electric Blue.

I placed some of the larger glitters, but I didn’t have to fish for any of these, they came right out to play!  I think this is my favorite of tonight’s colors 🙂  But I may be partial due to the reference!

You can find Darling Diva Polish on Facebook, and you can buy her beautiful colors at her Etsy shop.   All of her colors are $8.00 with the exception of holo colors, like Dangerous Driver, which are $12.00.  And she ships internationally for a reasonable rate!

Be sure to check her out, and also check back on Friday for Part 2!  Ringer and Dangerous Driver are SO GORGEOUS- I’m definitely saving the best for last.  You won’t want to miss it!
