Showing posts with label mauve

Hello lovelies,

 

I still keep ooh-ing and aah-ing over the Dance Legend polishes I've received earlier and today I'll show you another stunning shade. This time it's Sadness from the Mist Way collection which consists of 12 polishes. All shades in the Mist Way collection have crelly (something between jelly and creme) base and flakies in them creating romantic pastel look.

 

Sadness - dusty mauve purple crelly base with opalescent flakies. I really liked this shade on me! It is not sweet, girly pink colour but rather a 'grown up' colour if you know what I mean. The formula was easy to apply but quite sheer. I ended up applying three coats to get full opacity. The polish dried fast but not completely smooth so I'm wearing top coat as well.

So far I really like the quality of Dance Legend polishes despite this collection being a bit sheerer. It's also great that you get 15ml of polish in each full-sized bottle.

 

Dance Legend polishes are available at their website or at their partner stores in USA, UK, Brazils and France (links at the home page).

Hello lovelies,

I have some Barielle swatches that haven't been published yet; I thought you might like to see them...

Blue Cotton Candy - seafoam blue green with silver particles. This is a very unusual shade which has something attractive to it. The formula was just excellent. It applied easily and this is just ONE coat! It dries fast and I have also applied a topcoat to get completely smooth finish.

Life Of The Party - medium pink creme with red undertones. This is a pretty but not one-of-a-kind colour. It had good formula though. The application was easy and two coats were enough for full coverage. It also dried very fast and glossy.

Cherry Blossom Sparkler - pink glitter in a rose pink jelly. I've applied one coat over Life Of The Party. There's enough glitter in the bottle so one coat gives you nice coverage. it applied well but dried a little gritty.

Lilac Jelly Bean - mauve/lilac grey creme. I find this to be very elegant and office friendly colour. It has great formula that applies well and is almost one coater. if you have short nails you could probably get away with one coat but I needed two for perfect finish. The formula was slightly thicker so use thick coats to avoid patching. It dried fast & glossy.

Purple Hearts - blue, purple and holographic glitter in a clear base. It's a pretty glitter topper that I've applied over Lime Crime Parfait Day.It applied well and I liked the amount of glitter. It is not however for wearing alone but for layering.

Stardust - opalescent glitter in a clear base. This little beauty can be applied over any colour to give it a gorgeous opalescent spark. I've layered it over Lime Crime Pastelchio which created quite unique and in real life beautiful combination. It applied well but dried gritty so topcoat is a must.

Pink Diamond - pink glitter in a clear base. There's not much to say about this glitter topper, it's quite simple one-size glitter in a clear base. I've done a gradient over Lime Crime Peaches ♥ Cream.
