Flaky Comparison: Darling Diva Girlfriends Collection vs Finger Paints

Press Sample/Purchased by Me 

As promised, I'm back with a comparison between the new Darling Diva Girlfriends Collection flakies and the old Finger Paints flakies from a few years ago.

First, you can see that the bases are vastly different in the bottle. It doesn't really make a difference if you layer them over black but I have a feeling you could tell if you layered the Finger Paints over any other color. They would be yellow-tinted. Darling Diva's are clear so you could wear those over any shade.

I've matched them up as best I could and except for one (and the base) they are pretty close.

Finger Paints Asylum didn't match anything except the Finger Paints Twisted/DDP The Hottest Hottie That Ever Hottied. I knew they were pretty much dupes for each other (without quite as much of a green shift) back then but I'd forgotten. The base was a smidge thicker in the Finger Paints ones.

Darling Diva Polish's Girlfriends Collection polishes are available now and the Finger Paints ones have long been discontinued.

I don't have Nfu-Oh flakies to compare.

Hope this helps!

  1. Awesome comparison. I was wondering if you have GOSH Rainbow and Nubar 2010 to compare with Flashy and Hot Mama?

  2. Thanks so much! I was wondering about the microglitter in the Darling Diva flakie polishes. Does it interfere with the look of the flakies? I am thinking she added the microglitter to make her flakies a bit different than the other flakies coming out? I have ordered Hottie and am looking forward to getting it to try out. Hoping I like it lots, even with the microglitter - will be ordering them all if so! Thank you for the beautiful photos!

  3. It says "holographic micro-glitter" in her listing but IMO it's like holo shimmer. You can't feel it at all like micro-glitter. It's much smaller.
