The ABCs: D for Dear Hearts and Deep Violet
Today is D-day, and it’s a 2-for-one! Come check out my double Ds! Ok, I’ll stop with the puns, I just couldn’t help it.
I’ve been swatching All That Glitters Dear Hearts over all kinds of colors on nail wheels trying to figure out which one to layer it over, but I didn’t find the perfect match until Verity Deep Violet showed up in my mailbox. These two are a match made in heaven, so I was really relieved when Deep Violet got here just in time for my D-manicure. A big thanks to the lovely Noelie, who helped me get my hands on this beauty!
Dear Hearts is a handmade polish with pink glitter and shimmer and also pink, red and lavender heartshaped glitter in a sheer pink base. Deep Violet is a lovely dark purple jelly. Here’s how they look together.
Deep Violet is simply a dream to apply, it’s neither too thick nor too thin and it levels out beautifully. I used two coats here, but if I were to wear it on its own, I would probably have used three.
Dear Hearts is a bit trickier, because the hearts are not easy to get hold of. But with some fishing, I got a reasonable amount of hearts spread across my nails.
Verity lacquers can be bought at eBay for $3 a bottle, but please be aware that the international shipping is very expensive! If you can, get a friend overseas to forward them for you.
All That Glitters polishes are available at Etsy, at $8 a bottle. Dear Hearts was a Valentine’s special edition, so it’s only available as long as supplies last!
