Darling Diva Polish Lucky Star

Lucky Star is another polish from Darling Diva's Madonna collection. It has hot pink square glitters in two sizes, and neon green and black star glitters in a white jelly base.  I layered it over a just off-white polish for this mani - Models Own Pro French Ivory.

This is two thin coats of Darling Diva Lucky Star over two thin coats of Models Own Pro French Ivory. With hindsight I should have used a third coat of the Models Own, as it still looks a bit streaky close up.

Darling Diva Lucky Star was easy to apply and no fishing for glitters required. I used a coat of Gelous and a final coat of Seche Vite quick drying top coat to finish the mani - mostly because I wanted to be sure that the corners of the stars didn't stick out on my curvy nails! If your nails are flatter than mine, you'll be fine with just a coat of SV (or your preferred topcoat) for a bit of shine and protection.

I love this polish over the cream coloured base; I also think it would look good over a very pale yellow such as Illamasqua Load, a very pale pink like Butter London Teddy Girl or a buff like OPI My Vampire is Buff. I'll be trying this out again over a couple of these colours in the future. Maybe even over a gradient!

I've been looking at my nails all day today and really loving the effect of this mani in the sunlight ( I was running a 24 mile fell race over some pretty rough ground, so looking at my nails might not have been such a great idea) but there is bit more to the polish than that............ Darling Diva Lucky Star is also glow in the dark (and *glow in UV / black light*)!

This picture was taken in the dark; I don't have a black light source but neglelakkmani does - check out her review of this polish with a superb picture taken under UV light!

I received Darling Diva Polish Lucky Star as a sample for my unbiased review; you can buy Darling Diva polishes from their Etsy Shop or from Llarowe or Mei Mei's Signatures - all these sellers ship worldwide. Norway Nails also stocks Darling Diva polishes and ships within Europe. I bought the Models Own polish I used for undies  from my local Boots a while ago.

The Madonna collection, which also includes the lovely Material Girl I reviewed last week, launches today (Sunday 9 June) on Etsy. You can follow Darling Diva on facebook for news of new colours and restock updates.
