Darling Diva Polish: Bitches Have Birthdays – Swatches

Check this out! This is Bitches Have Birthday, from Darling Diva Polish – her Etsy store is here. She ships internationally, packaging is very good, and really fast now too. 2 weeks, I believe, from order to arrival on the other side of the planet. Pretttty good indeed.

Darling Diva Polish – Bitches Have Birthdays

This polish is GORGEOUS! Seriously. These photos are two thin coats over a PVA glue base coat, with Orly In A Snap top coat.

There are a few bald areas – that’s user error – the jelly base is super smooth, but I have to remember to go back and get the spots just behind the butterflies etcย  to avoid the ‘polish shadow’ of the larger structures ๐Ÿ™‚

It makes me a bit confused because it’s a nice, subtle, grown up colour and the glitter in it is so fun and sparkly – but it all works. Work appropriate Crazy Glitter Polish? I thinks I has it on my nails! Love it. Couldn’t think how I could love it more.

I’d describe this as a rose pink (though in the sunlight it looks more barbie pink) jelly base with blue, green, purple, holographic pink and gold glitters, and then the fun starts. Those are all small/medium sized, and then there are multi-coloured hearts, butterflies, diamonds and more. The glitters are loaded in here, there was absolutely no fishing required, as a matter of fact I was scooping some glitters onto other nails!

 

See? I have two butterflies AND a diamond aligned along one nail. There would have been three but I stuck it on my middle nail.

Look – maybe it’s the natural flight pattern of Polish Butterflies -all in a row ๐Ÿ˜€

Dry time was super fast, and although it’s not glassy smooth, it’s not gritty or annoying. Another coat of topcoat or a thicker one first then a quick dry would make it pretty darn smooth indeed.

For my own interest, I layered one coat of Bitches Have Birthday over Mode Sweetness (2 coats), and then added one coat of Kleancolor Madly Matte. I used Madly Matte because it’sย  a lovely thick polish, and it’s never matted anything before.

And guess what? It matted this! Hehehe. It’s a slow drying polish, and so I munted most of my polish before I took these photos, so these are what I have left to show ๐Ÿ˜€

Iย didn’t want to take this off. And I have more of hers I’m dying to try. First World Problems, how I love thee ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, I’m not normally a ‘pink polish’ person. Nor butterflies. But this polish is the most awesome contrast between girly and blingy, subtle and sparkly, young and not as young – but I can tell you something, it’s not for kids (although I think they’d love it, but they’re not getting mine!). If you’re thinking about getting it… my vote would be for getting it. I’m sure glad I did ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a lovely day
