Darling Diva Polish: Shades of a Diva Collection (Llarowe Exclusives) - Part 1

Press Sample

                                                                                                                                                                  
Good morning! First off, I must apologize for my erratic posting schedule these days. Life has been crazy but I am squeezing blog posts in every chance I get! Today I have a collection from Darling Diva Polish (I
have lost of goodies to show you from Darling Diva over the next few days so stay tuned for that!) that is available exclusively at Llarowe. This is the Shades of a Diva Collection. This is a 12 polish collection and I am showing you 5 today, the glitters. I will have the holos for you in a separate post soon!

                                                              


Post continued after the jump!



Beautiful is a lovely glitter in a very slightly tinted base. The glitters are a lovely mix of light blue, white and copper and the shimmer in the base is so delicate! It can be worn on its own in 3-ish coats but I wanted to see it over purple. I am showing just one coat over a medium purple creme. The formula was fabulous. It was easy to work with and I had no issues with the glitter at all. One coat of top coat and it was perfectly smooth.

Demure is such a happy polish! This is a very slightly tinted (light blue) base full of pastel circle glitters and iridescent shimmer. This can be worn alone in 2-3 coats but I layered it over Zoya Blu for the photos. This one glows in the dark and under a black light! I don't have a black light, unfortunately, but I do have a photo of it glowing in the dark. The glow is intense! No issue with the formula and I used one coat of top coat for the pics. (Excuse the drag marks in the close-up, I added top coat too quickly.)

Exuberant is another very happy polish! This is a white crelly base with brightly colored circle glitters, small "confetti" purple glitters and iridescent shimmer. No issues at all with the formula or application. This one is opaque and wearable on its own in 2 coats, but I did layer it over a plain white creme for the pics. One coat of top coat.

Silly is a mix of hearts, hexes, circles, bars, flowers and squares in all sorts of fun, bold colors in a clear base with blue and purple shimmer that really makes this polish pop! It also glows in the dark and under a black light! This one did glow a lot in person over the black but my camera didn't want to cooperate so I don't have any photos of the GITD, but it glows green! No issues at all with application on this one either. I did notice there was separation in the bottle fairly quickly but it shook back up easily. I contacted the maker and she said that is normal for this polish because the large glitter is on the heavy side and the glow-in-the-dark pigment likes to rise to the top. I didn't notice it being problematic at all and, as I stated before, it all mixed back together easily. I used one coat over a plain black creme. One coat of top coat for the photos.

Naughty is a stunning multi-chrome micro-glitter in a blackened blue base. It shifts from blue to purple to teal to green to magenta and even copper/orange in certain lighting. This one could be worn alone in two coats but I layered just one coat over a black creme base. The formula was fabulous and I only needed one coat of top coat. This polish is smooth and not top coat hungry.

What do you think of the glitters in this collection? I love the variety! There is something for everyone! If you've been following me long you know I'm not a huge fan of multi-chromes but Naughty is my favorite from the glitters in this collection. It's such a sexy polish! Demure gets second place, it's so fun and delicate all at the same time!

These are only available at Llarowe! They are in stock now and some of them are even on sale! Don't miss out on your chance to grab these!
