Darling Diva Polish: Rescue Me

Hey everyone! How's it going? I hope all your weeks are going faster than mine, ugh. Where is the weekend?!

I have for you a very lovely indie glitter by Darling Diva Polish called Rescue Me. Today's polish is very near and dear to me because the entire cost of the polish is going to benefit Basset Hound Rescue. Yes, you read that right - the entire $10 of this polish is going directly to them, not just the profits. (I can verify this because when she sent me this advance bottle, she had me donate the $10 directly to the charity, not to her.)

Rescue Me is made up of "black and white (bars, hexes, squares) with holographic pinky red hearts" (as DDP describes herself!). Side story: I had messaged her on Etsy (her shop is here) and told her I needed more heart glitter (I'm obsessed) and she mentioned this was in the works and I believe my exact response was "sign me up!" without ever seeing it. I'm definitely not disappointed!

So for today's swatches, I couldn't decide what to layer it over, so I did 4 different ones: OPI Atomic Orange, Essie French Affair, Essence Let's Get Lost, and Mattese Elite Lilac Me All Over, from left to right. I used the dabbing method to apply and spread it out, but it self-leveled pretty well (no TC in these photos) so that nobody would have noticed lumps or bumps. I did some fishing for hearts but it wasn't very difficult to get them out and on my nail.

I absolutely ADORE this over the Essence blue, so stunning. This made me totally regret selling my bottle of Lynnderella Connect the Dots and brushing off black and white glitters. I love love loved this, and I'm not just saying that for the puppies! The polish, IMO, is definitely worth the cost and you can even justify it by telling yourself you didn't buy polish, you donated $10 to Basset Hound Rescue. Pretty polish, rescued doggies, glitter = win, win, win (kudos if you get the TV show reference...)

Rescue Me is available at Darling Diva Polish for $10 a bottle, with the entire $10 going to Basset Hound Rescue! What do you think, will you be purchasing?!

I like it over the blue and lilac shades. I'm not sure if I'm yet sold on bars or hearts in glitter, but it looks good here.

I love it over everything. I need to find more ways to wear glitter at work...secretly.

I agree! I think that was my favorite.

Thanks! I hope I can sell you on heart glitter because it is my favorite!
