Dance Legend ~ Malta #82 with MILV stickers

Dance Legend ~ Malta #82 with MILV water decals
I Russia

Today’s post is dedicated to beautiful Russian polishes. It isn’t a secret that I am a big fan of El Corazón and Dance Legend so today I’m only wearing Russian beauties.

Let me show you:

The red is Dance Legend’s #82 from the Malta collection. It’s a beautiful red with golden shimmer. The shimmer sinks so the bottle needs a good shake, rattle and roll before the polish is ready to be applied. It’s really opaque, I think I may have been able to get away with one coat. I did two, and the drying time is pretty good.

The white shimmer is El Corazón’s m&s-172 from the matte&shine collection. It is my to go white for nail art. It covers in two coats.

The white glitter is also from El Corazón, it’s #N531a from the Confetti collection.

The Matryoshka doll and the “I Russia”-text are both water decals from MILV.

Here are the three Russian beauties:

Dance Legend Malta #82, El Corazón m&s-172 and N531a.

I love this!

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: I love all three of them

Moyra ~ #09 from the Vamp collection

Moyra ~ #09 from the Vamp collection
Cherry red with silver shimmer

I found this gem of a polish in a hidden corner. I bought it on a vacation in Hungary and I can’t believe I haven’t worn it before now.

The formula is good and really easy to work with. It also covers well, I believe that it can be used for stamping as well. I applied two coats out of habit and the drying time is good.

This is what two coats and no topcoat looks like in ordinary daylight:

I took this picture in the lightbox to show off the silver shimmer. There’s so much of it that the polish gets a metallic look.

I dapped some silver/holo glitter by the base of each nail. I used Salon Perfect’s Silver Sparkler for that. Then I stamped a flowery design on top of it all. I found it on plate Marianne-Nails No. 119 and I stamped with a black stamping polish.

Here’s what it ended up looking like.

I like the look of the stamp over the glitter.

Here are the two polishes.

There were more Moyra polishes in the hidden corner; many pretties that want to be worn :D

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: Very good polish, good coverage, nice colour!

Darling Diva ~ Yes, It’s a Fake Tree

Darling Diva ~ Yes, It’s a Fake Tree
Green linear holo

Yes, It’s a Fake Tree is from the Ho-Ho-Holiday Collection from 2015. I only bought it recently though :)

The formula is good and it covers well. I used two easy coats for my mani.

Here’s what it looks like with flash. Two coats and no topcoat:

I did a bit of nail art on it. I brushed a lighter shade of green onto one third of each nail. I used Colour Alike’s #513 for that purpose. Then I attached two nail studs on each nail. I finished the whole thing off with a layer of topcoat, and this is my final mani:

This is what it looks like in low lights.

Here are the two greens I used. Colour Alike is scattered holo.

I like this a lot!
