Swatches & Review - 2 Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend Winter shades

Hi loves! Last week I received an amazing package from Dance Legend, with lots of pretties from their recent collections to show you. Last year 2 shades from this brand made it to my top 10 list and looking at what I received, the same thing might happen again! Today I am showcasing the polishes I picked from the Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend collection, her second set. And they are droolworthy!




I'll probably be showing some each week, how about having Dance Legend Tuesdays for a while?

Both shades are swatched over a base of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and no topcoat (except for the bonus pictures).

Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend 15 Гамаюн (or Gamayun) is a gorgeous nude texture shade that also has a holographic sparkle. I actually applied this a day earlier than when I took pictures, so the texture was fully developed. It's a gorgeous shade, almost sandy or slightly golden, very chic and easy to wear but still special, since the holographic sparkle shows up with direct artificial light.

I also applied topcoat to see how it'd look, if you want to wear it like this I'd recommend a combination of something like Gelous and a thicker quick dry topcoat on top.

Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend 20 Бабай (or Baba) is a complex shade. The base is a very dark brown, bordering black. There are golden flakies, reddish shimmer and green sparkle floating around in it, and the finish is matte. It's just so unique! And while the matte finish is lovely, topping with a shiny topcoat transforms it completely ^^.

Overall conclusion
Both shades are quite unique and easy to apply. All you need are 2 coats and in this case, not even a topcoat since they both dry down matte (and one textured). The bottles from this collection are sturdy, square and come with a ring that has the polish color in it. I highly recommend both of these!

Which of these shades would you pick? And have you ever tried any Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend shades? Tell me in the comments!
