Pick Three Polishes: Darling Diva Old King Billy Had a Ten Ft Willie, Lemming Lacquer March 2016, Color Club polishes

Purchased by Me buttonOkay, technically this isn’t really a Pick Three Polishes post because I used several Color Club polishes with it, but we’re going to pretend, okay? I sort of based this idea of gradient dots on a cake design that I saw awhile back, so I grabbed a bunch of blue Color Club polishes I had on hand, as well as Darling Diva Polish Old King Billy Had a Ten Foot Willie and Lemming Lacquer March 2016.

Darling Diva Polish OKBHATFW (there’s a mouthful) is a creme based crelly polish with gold and green flakes and scattered holographic specks. I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat. It is sheer, but easily build able.

Lemming Lacquer March 2016 is a gold based holographic polish with purple specks and amber flakes (I think?). I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat. Again, this is sheer (tbh more sheer than I was expecting), but build able.

After I applied OKBATFW, I applied a circle stencil and then sponged the Color Clubs on top of that. Lastly, I applied two circle nail studs on my pointer finger.

At first, I wasn’t sure I liked how this turned out, but it ended up really nice! What do you think?

Bad Bitch Polish Plum Pudding + Darling Diva Polish Rekt

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! I’ve shown you some Bad Bitch Polish before with the Holo Goodness collection (and will show new pretties soon), but I wanted to show you this beautiful limited edition polish I picked up a long time ago: Plum Pudding.

I wanted to pair Darling Diva Polish Rekt with it! Rekt is a sheer based holographic topper that shifts from purple to blue, with large hex glitters, smaller square glitters, and who knows what else?

This is 1 coat plus top coat over Plum Pudding. Formula was okay, a bit thick – though kinda expected with how much is going on. Though it is pretty, it just wasn’t to my taste, so it’s currently in my de-stash sale on storenvy.

So, any plans for this weekend? Check in with me on snapchat at bhappybuypolish, I’ve been having fun there!

This is 1 coat + dabbing over Darling Diva Polish Mother [press sample, previously swatched]. Though it isn’t really for me, I appreciate when makers try doing a little something different. What do you think?
