Lilypad Lacquer ~ No more Chances



Lilypad Lacquer ~ No more Chances
Magenta based berry linear holo

I was in the mood for something beautiful but simple today, so I grabbed “No more Chances” from Lilypad Lacquer.

The formula is good and super easy to work with. No flooding of the cuticles but only polish where you actually want it. I used two coats for full opacity and the drying time was really good.

I placed a little flower stud by the base of each nail right after applying the second coat. I topped the whole thing with basecoat to seal it all up, and this, dear readers, is the final mani taken with flash:


I really like the simplicity of this! The studs are from evilbay :D


This is taken in ordinary daylight, no sun. Isn’t it just a gorgeous colour?


This mani ended up exactly the way I wanted it from the beginning: beautiful and simply. I love it when it ends like that! 

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: Great colour and quality, nice rainbows. A good buy!
Buy again: Yes

My Dance ~ 010 LS

Magenta linear holo

Today it’s time to show you a sister to a polish that I showed you yesterday. (Click here to see her, if you missed that post)

The formula was equally good and I used two easy coats for full opacity. Good drying time and no weird smells or anything.

The stamp is from stamping plate XY-J05. It’s not etched very well so it takes patience to get a decent stamp out of it. I managed okay though. I used a blue stamping polish from Colour Alike called “B. a Rainy Mood”.

This is the final mani including topcoat. The picture is taken in the morning sun.


The polish is also pretty out of the sun. Here’s a picture taken in the shade.


And here is LS on its own, no stamp or topcoat.


The polishes I used:


My Dance comes in 15 different colours. Each bottle is 6ml and I think I paid US$3.34 for each bottle. No postage costs so I guess it’s okay for a small bottle of prettiness.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good

My Dance ~ 09 Salon

I found this polish (and a sister) on Aliexpress. I have also seen the brand on evilbay.

The formula is really good and so is the coverage and the drying time. The smell was complete normal for a nail polish. I mention the normal smell because unknown brands from Asia sometimes smell really chemical, but this one doesn’t.

I stamped by the base of each nail. I used a stamping plate from Moyou London called Mandala Collection-11 and I stamped with a black stamping polish from El Corazón.

This is the final mani including topcoat. The picture is taken with flash.


This is what the polish looks like in ordinary daylight, no sun. The rainbows are still there.


Here’s the polish on its own without stamping. The picture is taken with flash.


I have another sister to show you. She’ll be up tomorrow so stay tuned.
