Hello lovelies,

 

Let's take a break from nail art, I still have some reviewing commitments ;) This time I want to show you 4 out of 6 shades from the Dance Legend Hammering collection.

 

Hammering is a special effect collection and each polish has a strange pattern described as the look of hammered metal. The effect shows shortly after applying the polish and shows best in just one coat. Each polish applied easily and was well pigmented so most were looking good in one coat.

 

Let's have a look at my four picks...

Dance Legend Hammering Collection Shades - Review & Swatches

 

 

Creep - pale blue metallic shade with special finish. One coat, no top coat. The effect seems to be the strongest in one coat and it shows nicely in Creep.

Constant Reminder - minty green metallic shade. I've applied two coats and no top coat. The effect was still quite strong with this one.

All Or Nothing - gold metallic shade with green undertones. I'm wearing two coats and no top coat. The usual pattern I expected didn't appear in the first coat so I've applied second just in case I did it wrong. It didn't work with this colour at all, there are larger specks that create slightly textured finish but that's about it.

As You Wish - berry pink metallic shade. Some swatches from other bloggers show it lighter and more pink but mine was quite dark colour. I'm wearing two coats and no top coat again. The polish was almost opaque in the first coat but I applied two in the end. This one dried very fast so I had to work fast to avoid patching. The pattern with this one wasn't very strong either but I could see the effect a bit.

So there you go, another unique collection from Dance Legend! I'm still a little bit torn between loving and hating the effect, I guess it's just something very unusual to have on my nails. I used to have a kid bicycle that had the same finish and colour as Constant Reminder and I remembered it straight away. Interesting...

 

All the polishes in the collection are very well pigmented and will mostly be fully opaque in the first coat. They are also sold in the 'mini' bottles and each holds 6,5ml of polish. Hammering collection is available at Dance Legend website and other international retailers.

 

What do you think of this effect? Let me know in the comments. Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much, I'm in some kind of a block. I don't feel like doing anything nails or blogging, it's probably all the wedding stress setting in. I'll try to post more often but if I don't then you know why.

 

I think it's time for me to finally try the leadlighting technique. I know this is old news and I'm very much behind but I just had to try it. This is really my first attempt. It is not a massive fail but it could've looked better.

 

I was testing out the Dance Legend Top Aquarelle collection polishes. They are basically tinted polishes that can be mixed and layered and can create wonderful effects.

I started with two coats of Models Own Chrome Green, then I've stamped with Konad black stamping polish and Pueen Fireworks Festival stamping plate. Then I've used doting tool and Dance Legend Top Aquarelle in Levitan and Picasso to fill in the patterns.

 

This cool pattern reminded me of peacock feathers so it was one of the first I wanted to try. The Pueen Fireworks Festival stamping plate is huge and full of different patterns and images. I will definitely show you more soon!

 

Have a lovely Sunday! Lucie x
