Darling Diva Polish Happy Wife, Happy Life! & Tease

Morning all!  I have some absolutely gorgeous color shifting glitters to share with you today.  These were truly amazing.  I walked all over my house staring at my nails in different lighting.  My kids probably thought I was a total kook.  Anywhoodle....these beauties come from one of my favorite indie brands, Darling Diva Polish.  Carrie really makes fabulous polish in so many different finishes!  She's got something for everyone: glitter, holo, color shifting, flakies, jellies, milky, etc...  So head on over to one of her shops and see what she has for you!

First off, I love the name of this one because it's true.  Ha!  Happy Wife, Happy Life! is a "topcoat full of green to purple color shifting glitters."  It's pretty darn amazing and so much more than the description lets on!  I also saw magenta and teal and cobalt!  As per the recommendation, I started this mani with black.  I used 1 layer of Sinful Colors Black on Black for a base to show off Happy Wife, Happy Life! at it's most colorful.  HWHL had an amazing formula and application was perfect. I used 2 coats to get very dense color changing glitter action.  I finished this with 1 layer of topcoat.  

These are some extra pictures I took of Happy Wife, Happy Life! because well, why not!  HWHL was so crazy, shifty I thought you'd like to see more pictures of it in action. 

Tease is another glitter topper that has some great color changing abilities!  This one is a bit darker in color with a more subtle color shift.  Tease is described as "sparkly blue to red shifting glitters."  It's also another topper that will work best over black or a dark base color.  I again used 1 layer of Sinful Colors Black On Black to start.  In Tease I saw indigo, purple, fuchsia and red colors!  It was another dense glitter and I only used 2 coats for very full coverage.  I found the formula and application both very lovely and easy to work with.  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
