I hope everyone had a wonderful Canada Day long weekend and you aren't having too much trouble easing yourself back into work this Tuesday morning.  Yesterday I showed you a sneak peak of Darling Diva Like A Virgin as part of my Canada Day mani but today I have lots of swatches and the full review for you.  I am a big fan of Darling Diva Polish.  If you look over at my "Indie Stash" list you can see I have purchased a lot of them so I was very honored to be chosen to swatch some of her polishes.

Like A Virgin is a mix of white and silver circles, micro holographic gitter, white bars, white hearts and blue/purple iridescent glitter in a clear base.  It is part of Darling Diva's Madonna collection.  The clear base is fairly thick but I think it needs to be that way to keep all those larger glitters from sinking straight to the bottom of the bottle.  I used one coat over Zoya Blaze.  The only glitter that I had to work to get out were the heart glitters.  Also, I did have to do some dabbing to get the larger circle glitters evenly distributed on my nails.  If you just brush the polish on all the larger glitters will end up near the tips of your nails.

Pictures show one coat of Like A Virgin over two coats of Zoya Blaze in natural sunlight.  I used one coat of Gelous as a top coat.  I honestly wasn't expecting to like this polish very much.  Personally, I'm not a fan of shaped glitter so the hearts didn't really appeal to me and I find bar glitter tends to look 'chaotic'.  However, I surprised myself once I got it on my nails.  I actually really like it.  Because the heart glitters aren't on every nail and I was easily able to align the bar glitters straight up and down the two things I didn't like were remedied.  It also dried quite smoothy for a polish with so many large glitters.
