Lolly Lilac from Dashing Diva


The Dashing Diva nail team were at it again backstage at the Bryant Park tents this past Friday, September 12th, at the Zac Posen show sponsored by American Express. The selected polish for the 40 models was a pretty “Lolly Lilac” polish.

After I saw Dashing Diva’s Lolly Lilac I had to try it! I was happy to find the color looks even better on then it did in the bottle, simply the perfect shade of lilac!

$7.99 Dashing Diva Lolly Lilac
