Swatches & Review: Dance Legend Holodays Collection - Anthem, Different View and New Promise

If you liked my yesterday's post, then I'm sure you're gonna love this one. Three shades from the Dance Legend Holodays collection - holographic shades with added scattered holographic shimmer. Holodays collection consists of 6 different shades. You can check them out on Dance Legend online store. These are my three picks from the collection: Anthem, Different View and New Promise.

If I had to, I'd pick Holodays over Galaxy collection. I was always more fond of holographic polishes than duo- and multichromes, plus the shades from the Holodays collection I got are all 2-coaters. Wonderful. They also come in smaller 6,5 mL bottles with a round brush. The formula is great, application is easy and drying time is short. Removal is easy as well. I love purple polish, but I think this time Different View got me... It's so gorgeous in real life. A true chameleon. Multichromes, holos and shimmer? I doubt this can be topped. =) I recommed!

Swatches & Review: Dance Legend Galaxy Collection - Comet Tail, Pulsar and Solar Eclipse

Ready for another Dance Legend collection? This one is called Galaxy and consists of 6 permanent shades and 2 limited edition shades. You can see them all on the Dance Legend online store. Galaxy nail polish shades are duochromes, or better said multichromes with scattered holographic shimmer. I got to pick three shades from the collection - I chose Comet Tail, Pulsar and Solar Eclipse.

The photos above were shot outdoors on natural lighting. All three shades were 3 coaters which is nothing surprising considering they're duo/multichromes. They all come in smaller 6,5 mL bottles and not in a regular full size Dance Legend bottles - that means they have a regular round brush. Formula was good and so was the application. If you're not a fan of three-coaters, you can use these shades for layering as well. The duochrome effect won't be as visible, but the holo shimmer will make the polish ''come alive''.

Swatches & Review: Dance Legend Smoky Collection - Cozy Sweater, Moorland and Cetraria

My collection of Dance Legend polishes just grew a little, so make sure to check my blog in future as well for more DL swatches. Smoky collection came out in Spring and the colors were perfect for spring time - pastels, but not the way we're used to see them. No, shades from the Smoky collection contain super small black shimmer which makes all the difference. Although the colors are nice and spring-y, they also look murky at the same time. Very original, in my humble opinion. 

Smoky collection consists of 6 shades. You can see them all on Dance Legend online store. I got to swatch three of them. I picked: Cozy Sweater, Moorland and Cetraria.

What can I say? Dance Legend rocks. Not only are they capable of releasing more collections in one season, they're also capable of releasing original nail polish shades for that matter. So very refresing. =) Well, originality doesn't mean a lot if the polish is of poor quality, right? Fear not! Dance Legend people know what they're doing. The formula on these three polishes was great and consistent. It felt a bit runny and thin to me at first and it made me wonder how many coats it will take to achieve full opacity. Guess what. Two were enough. The application was easy thanks to formula and great flat brush (I love DL brushes!) and drying time was short. What more could you possibly want?

Swatches & Review: Makeup Revolution - Dia de los Muertos Eyeshadow Palette

Another Makeup Revolution post. I've just realized I haven't told you anything about this new UK based brand yet. Well, I'm sure you've done your research in case you were interested, but still: 
''Makeup Revolution launched in London in March 2014 delivering revolutionary performance and quality, in every product at revolutionary prices. Made with the finest ingredients, the range starts at an amazing £1, with a range of professional and must have products with limited edition collections – you can finally afford them all!'' (Makeup Revolution)
The product you're about to see today is an eyeshadow palette called Dia de los Muertos.
Makeup Revolution - Dia de los Muertos Eyeshadow Palette

Here's what Makeup Revolution says about it:
''Salvation is here! Why a salvation? For the first time we have combined shimmer and matte shades in a series of exciting limited edition palettes with 18 shades of super high pay off impact. These palettes are in beautiful compact with large full size mirror for the first time in our series of palettes.''
The palette consists of 12 shimmer shades (square ones) and 6 matte shades (rounds ones). Matte shades come in four different skin/taupe shades and two neon ones. Notice the full sized mirror on the top - win!

Here are the 12 shimmer shades swatched on the back of my hand without any base. I tried to swatch the matte shades, but failed miserably. They certainly come in very handy when you're doing your make up, but are a pain in the ass to photograph. The third shimmer shade in the second row of the palette is actually a duochrome shade - it looks white-ish on my photo, but it flashes green in real life. 

Dia de los Muertos is a nice palette with both matte and shimmer shades of dark and light colors. The eyeshadows are pigmented but not the softest I have tried - once you try Sleek eyeshadow, it's hard to find anything softer. Still, I think this palette can be very useful if you like the colors it offers. 

Here's a simple look I made with this palette. 

You can buy Dia de los Muertos palette on Makeup Revolution website or on Ličila.si.

Venice (May 2014)

A couple of photos from my last trip to Venice. My 3rd time there, but my first time visiting the Murano and Burano islands. The weather wasn't the best, but it was great nonetheless. =)
