Hello Darling, Well Hello Darling, You’re Looking Swell in Bellini!

I’ve heard of Darling nail polishes on the interwebz for quite some time now. Their pastels have always intrigued me but somehow I never did buy any to try. Hmm … I wonder why.

Anyway, at the Beauty Bloggers Utopia weekend, I finally got the opportunity to try one out. Heather, founder of the Hello Darling, brought out a big box of different coloured nail polishes and told us to pick one each. I had my eye on this lovely coral pastel and grabbed at it hard as though I discovered the last pair of shoes in my size in a sample sale. Ahem. πŸ˜›

Behold, the Bellini. It’s a very pretty and creamy shade of coral.

It comes in an easy-to-apply formula. The first coat did seem to drag a little but the second covered the imperfections and the result was a glossy sheen on the nails. Tip wear came in after 3 days even with tip-wrapping, which was a tad disappointing.

Still, I’m game to get my grabby hands on more shades from Darling. I have my eyes set on the Lanikai and Max. Time to finally click the checkout button! πŸ˜›

    That’s such a cute colour! I still love corals and think they are the best shades to wear in Spring and Summer. And yes, I got the Hello, Dolly reference probably because we are, ahem… of the same generation.

      It’s so pretty, right? When my eyes fell on this, I was a woman on a mission trying to get my grubby hands on this πŸ˜›

    It’s a pretty and girly colour, and I agree with Lyn, it would make a nice colour to wear in spring. Also, it looks better on the nails than it did the bottle, no? πŸ™‚

    Love this Coral shade and that it’s free of nasty chemicals.

    At $18.95 it’s disappointing that it wore off the tips after 3 days – but then, I don’t wrap myself in cotton wool after painting my nails at home – it’s usually coming off after 2 days once it starts to chip!

      The longevity of the nail polish could definitely be better. Then again, I don’t leave nail polish on longer than 4 days so it’s okay for me πŸ˜›
