Guest Post: Lucy from The Nail Snail

Good morning! I totally meant to get this post up yesterday, but I fell asleep early watching CSI: NY :P Yesterday's guest post features Lucy from The Nail Snail :D Isn't that just the cutest name? :D


I’m Lucy from the Nail Snail and I’m so excited to be able to do a guest post for Patricia while her nubbin grows back. 

I love Patricia’s swatches, so for my guest I have swatches of two Darling Diva polishes: The Hot Chik and BzzBzz. I’ve actually never done swatches before, only nail art, so… well, here we go! 

As you can see, the Hot Chik is a very neon pink glitter topper in a clear base. It has a mix of different-sized glitters: hot pink hex glitters, square hot pink and orange glitters, and micro orange and pink glitters. It was crazy hard to capture its neon-fantastic-ness in a photo, and this was the best one I got: 

It’s more neon in real life, trust me. But overall it’s a very fun and eye-catching topper. It could be great with some other undies, but I thought that this light pink (Wet n Wild Tickled Pink) would do the best job of showing off the glitter. 

The other Darling Diva polish I swatched is BzzBzz, a mix of black and silver circular glitters and green micro glitters in a clear base:

I love the green micro glitters, they really pull the whole polish together! Once again, I could’ve used a more interesting undie, but.. well… you can’t go wrong with green glitter on green polish (in this case, Sephora by O.P.I. It’s Totally Karma). 

For both, I had to mess around a little to get the glitters in the right places that’s average for polishes like these. Drying time was faster than I’d expected, and they only needed one coat of Seche Vite to be completely smooth. 

These were the first two indie polishes I’ve ever tried, and I think they’re both very eye-catching and great for days when I just don’t feel like painting a lot of fancy stuff on my nails! Thanks so much to Patricia for letting me guest post on her blog, and hope you liked my first ever swatches!


**Darling Diva polishes can be found in her Etsy Store but I think BzzBzz can only be found at Llarowe **

Thank you so much, Lucy! :D I think my favorite is BzzBzz. I love circle glitters! Stay tuned for another guest post and some waterfall nails I did! :D
