Dance Legend ~ Celia (#093)



Dance Legend ~ Celia (#093)
Dark blurple/pink/orange/gold multichrome

Celia is from the Chameleon collection. There are six polishes in that collection and Celia is the only one I’ve bought – at least for now.

All six polishes are named after characters in the Monsters Inc. movie.

Celia is Mike Wazowski’s girlfriend and she looks like this:


I love the snakes!

Anyway – I finally decided to give in and buy this one polish. The formula is good and so is the coverage. I didn’t layer it over anything but my regular basecoat and application was so easy. It was opaque after two coats, but I applied a third coat to make sure that my camera wouldn’t pick up anything unseen to the human eye. For non-blogging purposes I would definitely not apply more than two coats. The drying time is good.

Let me show you some of Celia’s many colours – all pictures are taken in my lightbox.


The colour shift is amazing, both on pictures and in real life.


I like this picture, it’s almost dreamy :)


Oh yes! She’s a chameleon for sure!


One last shot on its own:

I decided to try something with flakies. Flakies have become highly popular again recently and I definitely understand why. I haven’t bought any of the new ones just yet though, since I still have the bottles from last time they were around. For this mani I used an old Essence called “Waking up in Vegas” with a green to orange colour shift.

I bought some cheap tip guides off evilBay. These ones are shaped like a lightning bolt. The shape is most visible on the first picture.


I love the double colour shift, this was exactly what I was after!


I love polishes that can actually do something, so this one is a hit for me. And I think it was a great idea to pair the Chameleon up with another colour shifter! What say you, dear friends?


Number of coats: 3 (but 2 is enough)
Drying time: Relatively fast
Finish: Duochromatic
Overall impression: I am really impressed with the colourshift and that the polish works withouth underwear!
Buy again: Yes to both
