Dance Legend ~ Matte #631 and Rio #4



Dance Legend ~ Matte #631 and Rio #4
Red with stars and stripes

Today I’m going to show you two of my Dance Legends. It has quickly become a favourite brand, they make fabulous holos but they also do basic polishes and glitters.

See what I did with two of them:

 
The red base colour is #631 from the matte collection. It’s a classic red with shimmer, and it dries up matte. Two coats is what it takes and the drying time is really good. You can literally see paint dry! :D
This next picture is taken with flash so you can see the pretty shimmer.


On my ring finger and my index finger I’ve got one coat of Rio #4. It’s a clear base with neon pink glitters, hexes, squares and stars. I didn’t fish for the stars of course, as always it’s just one dip in the bottle per nail here. The drying time is on the slow side, but a fast dry topcoat fixes that little challenge.
On my pinkie and my middle finger I made some stripes with a shocking pink striper and black. There’s a layer of topcoat to finish the mani too.


Here’s what Matte #631 looks like on its own. It’s two coats. I imagined it darker when I bought it, but I’m really happy with this colour! Finally a red without golden shimmer :D


Here are the two polishes and the two stripers I used:


Do you like my stars and stripes?


Number of coats: 2 layers of the matte, 1 of the glitter
Drying time: pretty good for the matte, slow for the glitter
Finish: Matte / Glitter
Overall impression: I love both polishes!
Buy again: Yes to both
