For today I have a simple design to show you, that I did a while ago. I used two coats of Flormar - 400 as my base and then painted on some random splashes and spots with China Glaze - Pool Party (Neon), China Glaze - Highlight Of My Summer (Neon) and H&M - U Must Have This. I did like the colors, but they do look a bit boring in the pictures. And I like the idea of splatter nails without the actual mess, so I might try this again with different colors.

I used OPI - AmazON...AmazOff plus H&M - Manhunter to create a gradient with a piece of sponge. Clean up was really annoying but I do like the combination. On top is one coat of Essence - BTGN High Gloss. I think there is a pretty famous picture of a gradient like this, but I couldn't find it anymore. If you know where it's from, please let me know!

It's time for the second theme of The Lacquer Legion! This month's challenge was Adoration: something we adore, no matter if it is a person, a color, a design or a nail polish. The first thing that crossed my mind was the water spotted technique from cutepolish which she posted last year. I haven't done one of these in a while and I really love the effect! Obviously I had to combine the technique with a current favorite of mine: Dance Legend - Wazowski from the Chameleon collection. I used it over a base of China Glaze - Holly-Day and the two colors look great together! I'm sure these would also look fabulous in a water marble. I have added some additional pictures to show you the multichrome effect of Wazowski. You can find all of the other designs of this challenge with the hashtag #LLadoration. And you can find my January design here.

I was especially curious about one of the Dance Legend polishes that I received: Top Sahara, the top coat that is supposed to turn every color into a textured polish. I was a bit concerned about the glitter in it though and I would have prefered a plain textured top coat. But the pictures today are actually more about that glitter than about the textured effect. I used two coats of Dance Legend - Celia, one of the beautiful multichromes from their Chameleon collection as my base color. Then I used two coats of Top Sahara over Celia, just to see what would happen. I love the result a lot, the pictures don't do it justice! It looks like a galaxy out of the bottle. I'm definitely going to try more combinations like this one! The Chameleon polishes are sold for 8$ each and Top Sahara for 9 $. You can buy Dance Legend in their online shop or in their partner shops, shipping is 10$ or free if you buy more than ten polishes.

Two coats of Essie - Maximillian Strasse Her plus some ornaments with acrylic paint. On top is one coat of Essie - Matte About You. I also added some studs and a shiny top coat later on, but I do prefer the matte version, don't you?

Another Dance Legend post! I'm gonna show you all four polishes in one post this time. I received four shades from the Candy Flakes collection which has six shades altogether and each bottle is sold for 9$. The formula was alright and I didn't use any top or base coat. I swatched all of them over a darker color as well. My favorite is Tinsel, I'd even wear this one without a darker base because it looks really special! You can buy Dance Legend in their online shop or in their partner shops, shipping is 10$ or free if you buy more than ten polishes.
1 coat over black
1 coat over black
1 coat over Essie - Bachelorette Bash
1 coat over Essie - Bahama Mama

You can buy Dance Legend in their online shop or in their partner shops, shipping is 10$ or free if you buy more than ten polishes.

I have another scattered holo for you! It's Dance Legend #27 Poison from their Wow Prism collection and I'm pretty sure this one is my favorite of the four I tried. I love green polishes and the holographic effect with green and silver particles makes it even better. The formula is just like the other two polishes a bit fluid and it needs two coats for a pretty result. I didn't wear any top or base coat. Wow Prism polishes are sold for 13$ each. You can buy Dance Legend in their online shop or in their partner shops, shipping is 10$ or free if you buy more than ten polishes.

Today's Dance Legend polish from their Wow Prism collection is #26 called Bullet For My Valentine. #26 is a beautiful scattered holo in a dark wine red with pink, red and silver holographic particles. This one needs two coats for a perfect finish and the formula is again a bit more fluid, but it still dries quite fast. I didn't use any base or top coat. I'm sorry that I don't have sunny pictures to show you the holographic effect! You can buy Dance Legend in their online shop or in their partner shops, shipping is 10$ or free if you buy more than ten polishes. Click here for the review on #15 Quiet Riot.
