Chirality Nail Polish has released a two piece collection named Black is the New Black Collection.
Along with this new two piece collection are new Chirality Nail Polish bottle labels! They are a bit hard to see because of the dark polishes, but trust me when I say they are super cute!
This collection was done in collaboration with the Soska Sisters! Don’t know who they are? They are two cult filmmakers known for Dead Hooker in a Trunk and American Mary, plus they have WWE’s See No Evil 2, The ABCs of Death 2, and XX (first ever all-female directed horror anthology) coming soon.
Here they are wearing one of the shades I’m about to show you!
Don’t worry – I’m about to show you the closeups on my hands!
Soska is a black jelly base with a linear holographic. I was able to reach full opacity in just 2 coats. Soska is the last name of the lovely ladies shown above!
(You can see the new labels best in this photo above!)
Counterintuitive is the sister polish to Soska. This is a black jelly base with a mix of blue and purple glitter mixed in, and large holographic circles. I used 2 coats for this photo and again, I was able to reach full opacity.
Both of the polishes here had great formulas and were fully opaque in just 2 coats even though they have jelly bases. I did not need to wear a black creme underneath at all.
Price: Soska retails for $10 Full Size and Counterintuitive retails for $8.00
Where to Buy: The Chirality Nail Polish Shop
Chirality Nail Polish also has a very limited edition shade released and once it’s gone, it’s gone – so be sure to check out Snowblind in their shop as well! Snowblind will be the final LE shade available in 2013 from Chirality
Also check out the Chirality Facebook Page for more swatches as well as updates and releases.

Tonight I have a beautiful 8 piece collection to show you from Sweet Heart Polish! This collection is named Death is Only The Beginning and it is inspired by the movie The Mummy!
When I was contacted to review, I was excited to work with Sweet Heart Polish, but when I found out that we actually live in the same town – I thought it was absolutely awesome! I’ve come across makers that are around my area, but none actually THAT close!
Take a look at the Death Is Only The Beginning Collection!
I, am a Librarian!
I, am a Librarian! is a deep pink scattered holographic jelly. I used 3 coats for this photo.
Scarab Shells is a holographic lavender jelly with a scattered holographic and a sky blue flask to it! This is a favorite <3 I used 3 coats for this photo.
Book of Amun-Ra
Book of Amun-Ra is actually a sheer gold polish topper with small gold holographic glitter and can be used over a variety of polishes. I chose to wear it on it’s own and it actually works well as a solo polish too. I used 3 coats for this photo.
Ameniphus is a perfect Fall shade! This is a coppery brown scattered holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Sands Of Time
Sands of Time is a champagne shimmery creme with a scattered holographic. I used 3 coats for this photo. You can see some light brush strokes, but I find that to be common with shades similar to this one.
Oasis of Ahm-Shere
Oasis of Ahm-Shere is a beautiful dark seafoam green scattered holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Drink From The Nile
Drink From The Nile is an amazing royal blue jelly base with a scattered holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo.
O’Connell! is a bright blue scattered holographic with a pink flash to it! The pink flash was hiding in photos, but in person you will be blown away! I used 3 coats for this photo.
I really love how vibrant these shades are and the scattered holo is such a lovely touch! The holo doesn’t outplay the colors, but definitely adds some oomph to the overall effect. The base colors are incredibly vibrant and would just look just as amazing on their own.
I had no application issues with any of these shades and they all went on easily and evenly.
My Top Picks: O’Connell!, Drink From The Nile, Oasis of Ahm-Shere and Scarab Shells
Price: $9.00 Each
Where To Buy: Sweet Heart Polish Shop

Space Party Round with Flower Swirls Shaped Nail Polish Pendant Necklace
This piece is my favorite of the two! This is Space Party Round with Flower Swirls Nail Polish Pendant! So sparkly and gorgeous. Space Party by My Ten Friends was used on this pendant and it is amplified by the large glass tile. The glass tile has been placed in a silver colored pendant tray that is encircled by swirls and flowers. Definitely an eye catching piece and one I will wear over and over again!
Size Information: The inset glass measures 30 mm (1.18″) in diameter and the pendant measures 45mm (1.77″) overall. It hangs on a silver plated snake chain that is 18″ with a 2″ extender.

Last night I shared the Darling Diva Polish Opal Collection, and tonight I have the Diamond Collection!
The Darling Diva Polish Diamond Collection consists of 7 holographic shades which are a little on the subtle side until you get them under good lighting. They really dazzle when the light hits just right!
I did not use a top coat in any of my photos. I tried 3 different ones (all fast dry top coats) and all of them muted the holo. I’m not sure if a non fast dry top coat would work better as I didn’t have any to use here.
Diamond is a silver holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Black Diamond is a charcoal grey linear holo. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Blue Diamond was a favorite. Blue Diamond is a vibrant blue linear holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo
Pink Diamond is a soft pinkish lilac shade. I used 2 coats for this photo. Make sure you use a good base coat with this one as I did experience some hot pink staining when I used it.
Rose Diamond is a bright rose holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Green Diamond is a beautiful bright green holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Chocolate Diamond is a silvery taupe holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Overall it is a very pretty collection. I did need to work fast, as all 7 polishes dried really fast. I would recommend very thin coats with these polishes to avoid uneven coats. The final product of each polish is incredibly beautiful, but as I said – these photos are with no top coat because the top coats I own muted the holo quite a bit. All polishes were completely opaque in 2 coats, some were near 1 coaters!
My Top Picks: Diamond, Chocolate Diamond, Blue Diamond and Rose Diamond
Price: $8.00 Each
Where To Buy: Darling Diva Polish Shop
Make sure you watch the Darling Diva Polish Facebook page for more swatches of the Diamond Collection as well as future and past shades!

This weekend I will have 2 gorgeous Darling Diva Polish Collections to show you. First up is the Darling Diva Polish Opal Collection! If you are a fan of flakie polishes, then I’m sure you’ll find some must haves within this collection!
The Darling Diva Polish Opal Collection consists of 7 jelly shades packed full with flakes. Most of these I swatched on their own, but you can also layer them over a creme base if you prefer to!
Opal is a clear base with iridescent flakes and silver holographic micro shimmer. This one can be built up to reach full opacity, but it will take a little work. I used 2 coats over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
Blue Opal is a sheer sky blue base with iridescent flakes and silver holographic micro shimmer. I used 2 coats OPI What’s With The Cattitude. Aside from Opal (which has a clear base) Blue Opal has the sheerest base. You can layer this on it’s own, but you need really thin coats.
Sea Moss Opal
Sea Moss Opal is a green jelly base with iridescent flakes and silver holographic micro shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Rose Opal is one of my favorites. This is a vibrant rose pink jelly base with iridescent flakes and silver holographic micro shimmer. I only needed 2 coats for this photo.
Violet Opal is another favorite! A deeper violet jelly base with iridescent flakes and silver holographic micro shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Teal Opal is a deep teal jelly base with iridescent flakes and silver holographic micro shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Last but not least is Black Opal. Black Opal is a black jelly base with iridescent flakes and silver holographic micro shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Overall this is a really pretty collection. You do need to use thin coats though. They are so jam packed with flakes that if you try to use too much at once, the flakes will lump up a bit. The formula itself is great and with thin coats I had no application issues. The amount of flakes in each polish helps to give off sparks of color and some gorgeous sparkle.
My Top Picks: Rose Opal, Opal, Violet Opal and Black Opal
Price: $8.00 Each
Where to Buy: Darling Diva Polish Shop
Make sure you watch the Darling Diva Polish Facebook page for more swatches of the Opal Collection as well as future and past shades!
Keep an eye out for the Diamond Collection from Darling Diva Polish which should be up tomorrow!
