Venique Jolly Holly Twinkle – Holiday 2012
(purchased in mid-2013 at a local beauty supply)

China Glaze Dancing & Prancing – Holiday 2014
(purchased at Sally Beauty at a deep discount, might have been during 2015 holiday season)

Finger Paints Glisten Here – Winter Wishes Holiday 2014
(purchased along with China Glaze Dancing & Prancing, imagining to do a glitter fade with the two, since their color schemes appeared very similar in the bottles)

PFF Series: stormy Saturday nails with a twist

Lol, I have them lined up like contestants on a stage…  Impala Pier, China Glaze Sea Spray, Eyeko Rain Polish, Illamasqua Raindrops, Dance Legend Hedgehog in the Fog.  This post was just a ruse so I could show you one of my new Dance Legends.  I have a fat crush on Dance Legend…

These three are hereby declared Polish Friends Forever.  Pier is the lightest, China Glaze is the bluest, Eyeko dries grey-greenest.  No one will notice this extremely slight discrepancy but you, dear reader, and me…

Poor Illamasqua is deemed positively boring next to the Russian beauty that is Dance Legend.

Above and below:  these images demonstrate how Dance Legend is much bluer than Illamasqua and has large transparent golden flakes, not glassfleck shimmer.

Bottom to top:  Impala Pier, China Glaze Sea Spray, Eyeko Rain Polish

Added drops, bleeding into each other:  Illamasqua Raindrops and Dance Legend Hedgehog in the Fog

More bleeding drops:  thick opaque Venique Shady Ombre; middle is OPI I Don’t Give A Rotterdam, a blue-gray varnish with packed predominantly gold rainbow microshimmer that is looking rather sickly on this bottle cap… the last drop on the bottom, most lavender-leaning, is Orly Pixie Dust.
