Dance Legend ~ #12 - another holographic


Dance Legend ~ #12
Berry coloured scattered holographic

This polish has been sitting in my stash of untrieds for much longer than I care to think about, and I don’t know why, really - because it’s a really lovely holo! I received it in a swap with my friend Anastasia from Little World of Coloured Nails.

I love berry coloured polishes and it’s only a bonus if they’ve got a holographic effect, scattered or linear, it all works!

I used my regular basecoat, and the formula was really great. Two coats is what it took. Drying time was good. The only thing that I noticed was that the polish got a really odd smell to it. Not a really bad one, just weird. But hey – it’s not a problem, just an observation!

Take a look at how pretty the polish is:


The sunshine makes the polish look as if it glows from within, I really, really like that!


I had sponging in mind for this baby, but I changed my mind at the last minute. I went for dots instead because I figured that the berry colour would go really well with A England’s “Tristam”, which is a blue scattered holo. The perfect mate for the Dance Legend if you ask me. You don’t have to take my word for it though – take a look for yourself:


I like that the dots have different sizes and that they’re not all over the entire nail.


- The two scattered holos work really great together!


There’s a layer of H K Girl topcoat over it btw, just to finish the mani.

So, what’s the verdict, girls? Do you like it? Have you got great ideas to how to vary the dots, then please let me know in the comments below!


Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 8/10
Durability: 8/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 8/10
Buy again: Yes

    2. And PS: I wanted to leave a comment on your latest post about Literary Lacquers, but I can't - it wants me to have Google+, which I don't have. Sorry!
