Dance Legend Pulsar

Love Dance Legend's chromes, but they are so hard to find here in Australia. So when I see them available I go into *must buy all the dance legends* mode.

This was from a destash sale I found advertised on an aussie nail polish buy/swap/sell group. I am trying to not buy too many polished right now because of my upcoming move to London, but sometimes I just can't help myself!

Zoya Roxy Swatches

My first Zoya ever is this gorgeous red-purple jelly glitter called Roxy. I wore it on Sunday to my friend's girl's birthday party. Her name is Roxie and right now purple is her favourite colour, so it was perfect! It went on like a dream and the patchiness on the ring finger was not visible IRL.

I caught this in a destash sale, along with a gorgeous Dance Legend multichrome. I am on a mission to buy all the Dance Legend chromes!

I did two coats and originally topped with Seche Vite. However, the next day, I decided to see how it would look matted. I used my trusty Revlon matte top coat.

Emily de Molly Chrome Flakies Nail Art

I thought the new Emily de Molly Ariel's Realm and Insipid were the perfect polishes for some more nail art. I've been a little slack with that and lately I am trying to up my game. They lend themselves quite well to scaled gradients.  

I used Emily de Molly's Clean Up Crew around my cuticles to aid clean up. Once I got pass the unexpected whiff, it was great!

Ulta3 watermarble nails

I used Blue Marlin and Strawberry Sundae in this watermarble mani. As you can see, I need heaps more practice. But luckily I won a set of the top 15 bestseller bottles of ulta3 polish to play with from Sonailicious and have plenty of good quality cremes to play with.

My patterns are a bit off. Other people loved it, but I always end up feeling a bit ambivilent about watermarbles. I think it's because it's a bit psycheldelic and I'm just not into the 60s hippy look.

After a couple of days I added the Glisten and Glow holo top coat. Unfortunately it dulled the colour a bit, so I'm not sure if I should have done that.
