Dance Legend – Malibu Collection

I’m back today with some Dance Legend swatches! My two favourites from the Malibu collection, an 8-piece glitter collection. Let’s take a look!

Dance Legend – Humaliwo 

Dance Legend – Humaliwo 

Dance Legend – Humaliwo: First up is Humaliwo, a milky mint with green and purple hex glitter. It was sheer on the first coat but built up nicely in three thin coats. I also added top coat.

Dance Legend – Pina Colada

Dance Legend – Pina Colada

Dance Legend – Pina Colada: Next up is Pina Colada, a peachy jelly with yellow hex glitter, orange square glitter and pink hex glitter. The yellow glitter really adds something gorgeous to this one. I wanted to show you how it looks with two thin coats which is what I used here. I had some VNL but it still looks gorgeous! This was two coats and top coat.

You can purchase Dance Legend polishes directly from Dance Legend in Russia but I recommend using one of the stockists if you are based elsewhere. Near me that’s the lovely Maria from Hypnotic Polish.

Sally Hansen – Velvet & Luxe Lace Review

I have two Sally Hansen shades to share with you, one shade from the Velvet Texture collection and one from the Lux Lace collection. Let’s take a look!

Sally Hansen – Velveteen 

Sally Hansen – Velveteen 

Sally Hansen – Velveteen: First up is Velveteen from the Velvet Texture collection. As you can see it’s a texture polish. It’s a much softer texture compared to other texture polishes I own. It dries to a matte finish and has a soft feel. I used two coats for opacity.

Sally Hansen – Eyelet

Sally Hansen – Eyelet

Sally Hansen – Eyelet: Next up is Eyelet from the Lux Lace collection. A white glitter topper with four sizes of hex glitter including some really large ones. Kinda random but I really loved the logo on the label! Application was easy and I didn’t have to fish, this was one coat over black and top coat.

In Belgium you can purchase these via Planet Parfum I believe. In the US both of these were released late last year but I think they might still be available.

Sally Hansen – Natalie B Coleman Collection

I’m back today with some Sally Hansen swatches! Two colours that are new releases in the Natalie B Coleman Spring/Summer 2015 collection here in Belgium and I believe in the rest of Europe too but I’m not 100% positive on that… I did some googling and these two are actually older colours that were released in 2013 so they aren’t new-new colours but were handpicked to reflect Natalie B Coleman’s collection. Enough talk, let’s look at the colours!

Sally Hansen – Enchanté

Sally Hansen – Enchanté

Sally Hansen – Enchanté: First up is this gorgeous dusty rose. I absolutely love colours like this so it’s right up my alley. While I used two coats, it’s practically a one coater. The formula is easy to work with and very opaque. This is two coats and top coat.

Sally Hansen – Belle Of The Ball

Sally Hansen – Belle Of The Ball

Sally Hansen – Belle Of The Ball: The second shade I have is Belle Of The Ball. I thought this would be an ordinary shimmery purple looking at the bottle, but when I applied the first coat I was surprised to see this has a navy blue base! If you look closely at the edge of my cuticle you can almost tell. I think the blue base is what makes this colour so full of depth. It’s absolutely incredible! This was two easy coats and top coat.

In Belgium you can purchase these via Planet Parfum I believe. Bottles hold 14.7ml, have a wide rounded brush and the formula is flawless!

Dance Legend – City Lights Collection

I’m back today with some Dance Legend swatches! My two picks from the City Lights collection which features six glitter jellies. Let’s take a look!

Dance Legend – Sleepwalk

Dance Legend – Sleepwalk

Dance Legend – Sleepwalk: First is Sleepwalk, a gorgeous sheer black jelly with iridescent colourshifting square glitter and gold microglitter. The square glitters shift from green to turqoise to deep blue. The colour shift is super strong and just incredible! I was however really surprised when I first applied this. It looks nothing like in the bottle when you apply it on its own, the base is really sheer and almost impossible to get opaque. Hence why I applied one coat over black to get a gorgeous dramatic effect like you see in the bottle.

Dance Legend – Hen Party

Dance Legend – Hen Party

Dance Legend – Hen Party: Next is Hen Party which is a neon pink jelly with gold iridescent square glitter and blue/green microglitter. I’ve seen people reach opacity with this but it was too sheer for me. While it will look gorgeous layered over pink I wanted to see what the effect was over black. Surprising right?! It looks orange and the blue microglitter really comes alive! This was one coat over black.

You can purchase Dance Legend polishes directly from Dance Legend in Russia but I recommend using one of the stockists if you are based elsewhere. Near me that’s the lovely Maria from Hypnotic Polish.

Polish Me Silly – Spring 2015 Collection

I have a big swatch post for you today! The latest Polish Me Silly Spring collection which features 9 new glitter toppers, 4 thermals and 4 holographics. They are fun and bright, everything Polish Me Silly is about! Let’s take a look.

Polish Me Silly – Funfetti

Polish Me Silly – Funfetti

Polish Me Silly – Funfetti: First up is Funfetti, a bright glitter topper that features rainbow coloured glitters. Circles, stars, hexies and tiny bar glitters. This is one coat over Cirque Colors Memento Mori and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Trouble Maker

Polish Me Silly – Trouble Maker

Polish Me Silly – Trouble Maker: Next is Trouble Maker, the only one from the glitter toppers that features black as well as a mix of neon circle glitters and hex glitter. I think this is probably my favourite because I love how the black adds more contrast. This is one coat over Cirque Colors Carpe Diem and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Sunburst

Polish Me Silly – Sunburst

Polish Me Silly – Sunburst: Next up is Sunburst which is a mix of blue, orange, pink neon yellow and green. Rather than show every topper over the same colour I decided to mix things up and show some different layering combinations. I used black and white (as you saw above) and a rainbow of colours (coming up), but I also decided to layer one over a nude. I was surprised to see how well this worked, it’s actually my favourite combination. The neon glitters really come alive! This is one coat over Color Club Barely There and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Pucker Up

Polish Me Silly – Pucker Up

Polish Me Silly – Pucker Up: Next up is Pucker Up which features purple, pink, orange and yellow. It’s a very warm toned mix and I love how it looks over hot pink! This is one coat over Faby Dedicated To Brigitte and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Flirty

Polish Me Silly – Flirty

Polish Me Silly – Flirty: Next is Flirty which is a cute rainbow mix of circle glitters and blue hex glitter. This is one coat over Faby Marry Me Robbie!!! and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Sassy

Polish Me Silly – Sassy

Polish Me Silly – Sassy: Next up is Sassy, a mix of purple, pink and green circle glitter. This one reminded me of flowers so I decided to layer it over green for a “flowers in a field” look haha! This is one coat over China Glaze Starboard and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Twinkle Toes

Polish Me Silly – Twinkle Toes

Polish Me Silly – Twinkle Toes: Next is Twinkle Toes, a mix of purple and green, blue glitter and blue hex glitter. This is one coat over China Glaze Re-Freshmint and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Beach Party

Polish Me Silly – Beach Party

Polish Me Silly – Beach Party: Next up is Beach Party, a mix of pink, yellow, green, blue circle glitter and blue hex glitters. Even over darker colours these look gorgeous! This was one coat over China Glaze First Mate and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Butterfly Kisses

Polish Me Silly – Butterfly Kisses

Polish Me Silly – Butterfly Kisses: Next is Butterfly Kisses, a mix of pink, blue and purple. The last one of the top coats. This is one coat over KBShimmer Hugs And Wishes and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Caribbean Breeze

Polish Me Silly – Caribbean Breeze

Polish Me Silly – Caribbean Breeze: Next is Caribbean Breeze a gorgeous mint thermal with colour shifting turquoise flakie shimmer. I’ll admit I didn’t notice this was a thermal. The colour change is there but it’s subtle. It goes from an aqua to a green mint. This was three coats and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Periwinkle Twinkle

Polish Me Silly – Periwinkle Twinkle

Polish Me Silly – Periwinkle Twinkle: Next is Periwinkle Twinkle, the first of three thermals with glitter. This goes from an almost white blue when warm to a periwinkle blue when cold. The shift is more dramatic than my photos show, I had a really hard time capturing it, my fingers just weren’t cooperating. The glitters in this one are purple, blue and green. This is three thin coats.

Polish Me Silly – Lilac Lover

Polish Me Silly – Lilac Lover

Polish Me Silly – Lilac Lover: Next is Lilac Lover, a purple thermal that goes from white when warm to a warm purple when cold. Again, the shift is really strong but my photos don’t show it off to the fullest. This one has yellow, blue, orange and pink glitter. This is three coats and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Pickled Pink

Polish Me Silly – Pickled Pink

Polish Me Silly – Pickled Pink: Next is Pickled Pink, a thermal that goes from almost white when warm to pink when cold. This has green, pink and purple glitter. Super sweet and perfect for Spring! This is three thin coats but you could get away with two. I also added top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Grassy But Classy (natural daylight)

Polish Me Silly – Grassy But Classy (direct light)

Polish Me Silly – Grassy But Classy: Next is the first of four holos. While they all have a strong holo this one is the strongest I think. I practically begged Karin to make more holos, I absolutely fell in love with the first holos she did last collection. Back then she made regular holos and a few holos with added fine hex holo glitter. These four all have that added glitter which just add a bit more sparkle and are so beautiful. This is three thin coats and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Blurple Surprise (natural daylight)

Polish Me Silly – Blurple Surprise (direct light)

Polish Me Silly – Blurple Surprise: Next up is Blurple Surprise, but it’s not what I would consider a blurple. It’s a bright blue with gorgeous pink shimmer. Really beautiful especially with the tiny holo glitter. This is three thin coats and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Temptation (natural daylight)

Polish Me Silly – Temptation (natural daylight)

Polish Me Silly – Temptation: Next up is Temptation, a gorgeous purple holo with small holo glitters. Love this one but I guess that’s no surprise! This was two coats and top coat.

Polish Me Silly – Rosy Cheeks (natural daylight)

Polish Me Silly – Rosy Cheeks (natural daylight)

Polish Me Silly – Rosy Cheeks (direct light)

Polish Me Silly – Rosy Cheeks: And finally we have Rosy Cheeks, a raspberry pink holo with a fuchsia flash of shimmer. This one also has that gorgeous fine holo glitter which is so so gorgeous. I can’t praise the Polish Me Silly holos enough! This was two easy coats and top coat.

You can purchase the new Polish Me Silly shades from their Etsy shop. My favourites from this collection are Temptation, Trouble Maker and Pickled Pink.
