Dance Legend ~ 14


Dance Legend ~ 14  
Blue linear holo

Here’s another pretty polish all the way from Russia, courtesy of sweet Anastasia from Little World of Coloured Nails. I was pretty excited to get holos in the swap – and I had to try it on now even though I rarely see the sun this time of year.

I used an ordinary base coat from Finger Paints. I had forgotten that holos like aqua base coats, and I only remembered it after having applied the regular base coat. And it didn’t give me any problems at all. The polish applied easily and without dragging or bald spots, but I must admit that I was a little bit suspicious after the first coat. It looked so sheer that I was sure it was going to take at least 4 coats for it to be opaque. But I was wrong. The second coat did the trick, and I was pleased with the opaqueness.

I had no sun available, so the pics are taken under an ordinary light bulb.

Two coats, no top coat:



The blue is really pretty, and I can’t wait to try this when the sun actually shines! The holo is linear and visible also in low lights – so I’m sure this is a stunner in sunshine.

 
I made some simple dots on it with a blue Golden Rose polish, Anastasia sent me as well, it’s called “131” and is a dark blue crème. I made 4 or 5 dots on each nail. And then I topped it with Finger Paints top coat, and I was done.

Here’s the final mani:


I love this holo, and am excited to try the other one on as well.

What’s the verdict, girls? Do you like this? Do you wear holos even when the sun doesn’t shine?
