It’s another Monday in October and that means a post featuring pink polish as part of Polish Us Pink, an initiative directed at Breast Cancer Awareness devised by Susan at The Subtle Shimmer and a few other nail bloggers.
Today I’m wearing pink in the true Barbie Doll sense. I give you Cult Nails Untamed under Darling Diva Polish’s Carrie.
I’ve got to say that this isn’t my usual polish choice. I think I’ve said before I’m not a huge one for pink polish. And yet despite that I own both of these babies:)
Untamed is a lovely mid pink jelly polish which could probably be great for jelly sandwiches – a feat that is still beyond me. It has a very ver subtle (if that’s a word that can be used in conjunction with a pink like this!) shimmer thanks to a sparse smattering of very very fine micro glitter.
Darling Diva Polish’s Carrie is an fine an slightly larger iridescent glitters in a very lightly tinted mid pink suspension base. The base is slightly thick but not so as to be difficult to apply and suspends the glitter beautifully. I’ve really very impressed with the DDP polishes I’ve worn so far and I’m quite surprised that this brand hasn’t been picked up by the likes of Llarowe or some of the other online stores that stock indies yet. Darling Diva Polish is available from their Etsy store. They ship internationally for a really quite reasonable price.
Untamed was part of the recent Cult Nails collection designed by Maria’s daughter Coco. I bought the set of five polishes as part of the pre sale pricing arrangement that Cult Nails tends to do when they release a new collection, which is why Untamed made it’s way to the LCF stash. It probably would have otherwise. But it’s a fun polish to have and I’m sure as my
competence confidence with all things nail artsy grows I’ll be pulling it out again. I own quite a few Cult Nails polishes because the formulas are generally great and they strike me as great value.
Do you have any polishes by these brands? Have you ventured on to Etsy in search of some good indie lacquers yet? Be warned – it will be the ruin of your wallet:)
