Dance Legend Candy Flakes Collection: Final Fantasy

I'm in love with this polish,
and it shows in the number of photos I took of it!
Dance Legend Final Fantasy,
3 coats + HK Girl TC.
Blue/green colour shifting flakies in a purple jelly base loaded with red shimmer.
It reminded me of Clarins 230 for some reason.
I was desperately trying to catch the blue/green colour shift,
and tried taking photos indoors as well:
The four shots above were taken in the office,
under florescent lights.
Then I wondered if layering the polish over a darker base would make it pop more:

So the shots above are of Final Fantasy over Misa Trust Fund,
in natural sunlight.
And I tried taking photos in the lift too.

The blue/green shift is just too elusive,
but its definitely there in person and absolutely gorgeous.
Guess if you haven't already worn it yourself,
you'll just have to take my word for it.

Dance Legend Chameleon No. 097 The Knight (Limited Edition)

Dance Legend The Knight,
2 coats + HK Girl TC
Gorgeous metallic duochrome
that shifts from a burnished gold hue to purple and a gunmetal blue-grey hue.
I couldn't stop staring at it.
So thankful that I managed to snag this one!

Holiday Nail Art: Quickie Feathers

I had 45 mins to spare before I needed to head out to the gym,
and felt an urge for something a wee bit more interesting on the nails.
Grabbed my water decals and came up with this:
Unfortunately, as you can see,
I smudged my thumb a little and didn't have time to do anything about it.
Still, it was eye-catching enough that someone at the gym asked me about it,
and I spent a good 5 mins educating her about the wonders of water decals.
Base polishes are:
Misa Trust Fund,
and OPI Strawberry Margarita.
Water decals were bought from Born Pretty Store.

Nail Art Weekend: Oriental Flowers

This was one of my ideas of using the sheer/tint polishes.
It might be the polish combination that I chose,
but it sure turned out a lot better in my head.
Polishes and items used:
Addiction Black Leopard,
Dance Legend The Knight,
water decals.
Technique: The spotted water-marble.
Never mind.
I'm going try it again.

Zoya Pixie Dust: London

I'm loving the Pixie Dust more and more.
They're awesome for when you need a mani change,
but don't have a lot of time to spare.
Zoya London,
2 coats, no TC.
Lovely stone grey texture with silver glitter.
I love how it looks like I have asphalt on my nails.
