Darling Diva Polish Valentine's Duos

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and many of us like to celebrate with flowers and sweets, or beautiful polishes! Carrie of Darling Diva Polish has just released two fantastic polish duos for Valentine's that I'm very pleased to share today!

Disclosure: These products were sent for my honest review.

Darling Diva Polish Hide & Go Eff Yourself

Hide & Go Eff Yourself is a beautiful charcoal black jelly holographic polish with a slightly gold shimmer. This color has some seriously intense rainbows! It's a little bit on the sheer side since it has that jelly-like finish, and took four coats to become nicely opaque. The formula was superb and great to work with.

Darling Diva Polish Hide & Go Eff Yourself + That New Love Feel and Bat Shit Crazy Ex

Bat Shit Crazy Ex is the corresponding glitter topper that comes in a set with Hide & Go Eff  Yourself, and is a gorgeous mix of holographic silver and gunmetal crescent moons, hearts, and stars, as well as small black glitter and holographic micro-glitter. Here I have it over my middle and ring fingers. I love this combination! It's an incredibly sparkly and very versatile topper that can go over just about any color. The formula was just perfect; I had absolutely no difficulty obtaining all of the glitters on my brush, and they applied smoothly and with just the right amount! Shown here is 1-2 coats. I also layered the glitter topper from the pink Valentine's duo, That New Love Feel, on my index and pinky fingers. I'll go into detail about this lovely topper below!

Darling Diva Polish Love of My Life

Love of My Life is a sheer bubblegum pink crelly completely packed with stunning pink, gold, and violet shifting shimmer and flecks. I wish I had been able to capture the gorgeous shimmer better! It's somewhat subtle, but when the light hits it just right, it really adds a beautiful depth and sparkle to this polish. The formula was rather sheer and a bit thick, and wanted to look a little patchy if I didn't apply a fair amount of polish, so I recommend thicker coats to help it self-level. Shown here is 4-5 coats. However it did dry very quickly! Next time I'll probably use pale pink undies with this color because I prefer it opaque, myself.

Here you can really see the dazzling shimmer and flecks!

Darling Diva Polish Love of My Life + That New Love Feel and Bat Shit Crazy Ex

That New Love Feel is the glitter topper that pairs with Love of My Life and is included in the set. It's a beautiful mix of pale pink satin circles, hearts, flowers, squares, butterflies, and hexes, holographic pink hearts and silver stars, small iridescent hexes and fine bars, and is also packed with pink to gold shifting shimmer. The formula was also excellent, and incredibly easy to pick up and apply all of the glitters. Shown here is about two coats. The variety of glitter types, sizes, and finishes make this another fantastic and versatile topper that I just adore!

Darling Diva That New Love Feel over Zoya Odette

I also just received my Zoya polishes from their "Color Your World" 3 free colors promo, and thought That New Love Feel would look great over Zoya Odette, and I love how it turned out! Odette is a lovely dusty mauve creme, and the pink shimmer and pale pink glitter in That New Love Feel really pop over it!

 Darling Diva Polish's limited edition Valentine's Day duo sets are available on her Big Cartel Shop right now, so act fast before they disappear!
