Darling Diva Polish Swatches

 Its been a long time since i've done any indie Polish swatches.
My first indie polish love started with Darling Diva polish.
And the affair continues.
Today i have two lovely polishes for swatching.
PRICE -$9 each
You can buy them HERE and HERE

DARLING NIKKI
 is a deep plum based crelly with black circles in 2 sizes and micro glitters.
Though it looks very opaque in the bottle i needed to apply about 4 layers to acheive opacity.
As always they lasts for 4-5 days without chipping.
Removing glitter polishes can be such a pain unless you use the "foil technique"
Out of the 2 polishes Darling Nikki is my favourite since it looks very sober with a hint of playfulness (because of the polka)


INTO THE GROOVE-
 This is an apple green based Crelly polish with black and silver circles in two sizes.
This shade somewhat reminds me of witches' broth and will be ideal for halloween.
The formula is a little glue-ey compared to Darling Nikki.
Tends to have uneven finish so i need to layer a good amount of top coat to smoothen it out.
This polish also needs 3-4 layers to get the opaque look.
WHICH ONE DID YOU PREFER
For those of you who are new to the term CRELLY-
It means creme-jelly. Squishy but not translucent enough to be called jellies.
Hope that helps.
