Hello lovelies,

You know I do glitter gradients quite often because I just love them, they look so effective and they are super easy to do! Well I've done another one! :D

This one is styled into Autumn colours using Models Own Raven Red and China Glaze Champagne Kisses. The glitter got quite thick and gloopy since I last used it so it wasn't the easiest to work with but I think I made it work somehow in the end. I've used Seche Vite topcoat in the end to get glossy and smooth finish.

I've already done a glitter gradient video tutorial so I won't be doing a new one. Here is the latest one I did:

 

 

 

 

 

It is a very short post today because I'm a busy bee, swatching all the new beauties I want to show you so forgive me. Besides, in this case pictures are much better than words!

Hello lovelies,

 

The kind people from Dance Legend have sent me some polishes to review and since I have more polishes to show you than there are days in the year I have decided to do a big Dance Legend swatch post! Hold onto your hats, there are some gorgeous polishes coming!

 

Dance Legend Swatchaton

 

 

Golden Cobra - gold chunky holographic shade. Golden Cobra is a polish from the WOW Prism collection which has strong scattered holographic effect. The particles are quite big which makes it very different from linear holo polishes. It had good to apply formula but it was quite sheer. I've applied three thicker coats and no topcoat.

Holy Diver - azure blue chunky holographic shade. Holy Diver is also from the WOW Prism collection and has scattered holographic effect. It has slightly better formula than Golden Cobra with easy application and full coverage in two thicker coats. It dried fast and smooth so I'm not wearing topcoat BUT i stained my nails so double up on base coat.

Cetraria - muted green creme with grey particles. Cetraria is part of Smoky collection where each polish has these grey particles to create smoky effect. When I was swatching this polish the name baffled me because I haven't seen it before but once I googled it I found out it is a kind of lichen. It had good formula that applied easily and evenly without streaks and was opaque in two thicker coats. I'm wearing topcoat in the pictures as well.

Moorland - light lavender creme with grey particles. Moorland is another shade from the Smoky collection and it has kind of an eerie feel to it. It was easy to apply and was fully opaque in two thicker coats. It also dried fast and smooth but I've applied topcoat in the swatch as well.

Grey Britain - grey creme with dark grey particles. This is the last shade from the Smoky collection I have - how awesome is that name? I absolutely love it, it's so fitting lol! This must be the ultimate smoke effect polish for me. It had the same formula as the previous two shades - easy to apply, opaque in two coats and fast-drying.

Rio 1 - neon glitter bomb topper. Rio collection is a selection of neon glitter toppers and Rio 1 has mix of neon blue, pink and green glitters in different shapes including squares and stars. I'm wearing one coat of Rio 1 over Nicole by OPI The Coral Of The Story. It applied well and dried fast but little gritty so topcoat is necessary.

Rio 2 - neon green glitter in square, hexagon and star shapes in lightly tinted base. I'm wearing one coat of Rio 2 over a lime and white gradient (Nicole by OPI Lay It On The Lime and Zoya Purity). Rio 2 base has a light green tint so it coloured the white part of the gradient into light green. It applied well and I needed a topcoat as well to get smooth finish.

Top Prismatic - linear holographic topcoat. This is meant to be a holographic topper that you can use over any polish and turn it into holographic. It has very strong linear holo effect. It mutes the colour of polish underneath a bit but it also creates a unique combination. I've applied one coat of Top Prismatic over Barry M Carousel. It applies very easily and smoothly and it does not cause streaking. It dried fast and smooth but always use topcoat as well.

Top Magnetic - special magnetic effect topper. When the magnetic polish craze hit you could only have magnetic polish in the shade it was made. With this topper you can give any polish the magnetic effect. I don't know if the trend is completely over but I still wanted to show you there is this neat little product available. I have applied one coat of Top Magnetic over Barry M Cancun. It applied well and once I magnetised the polish with special magnet, it revealed the base polish underneath.

Hello lovelies,

 

I haven't been the most creative lately, I think that the pressure of reviewing and being creative all the time is getting to me a bit. I have tried to do something with beautiful Spell polish multichromes I got for review but it didn't come out as nicely as it was in my head. Well I still hope you'll enjoy it.

 

I attempted a Cartoon Colour Block Nails where I've combined two multichrome polishes - Spell Polish Swinging Through Stars and Chasing Our Shadows. Each of them is beautiful on their own but together they are something different! The accents and outlines are done with acrylic paint.

I really like how the design comes to life in different light and angle thanks to the colour shift. I don't know about you but I love to play with multichrome polishes, they are something quite special.

 

Spell Polishes come in large rectangular bottles, I think it's like the American Apparel polish bottles. I found it a bit hard to hold and take photographs with but on the other hand it is super space-saving. Spell Polish is 5-free and available at their website for $17 per 15ml bottle.
