Swatches & Review - 2 Dance Legend Glass shades

Hi loves! Another Dance Legend "Tuesday" post, this time on Wednesday ;-). It's all about the Dance Legend Glass collection today, which consists of 12 jelly shades. They become fairly opaque but you could also use them for a jelly sandwich for example.

Let's take a look!

Dance Legend Glass 1055 is a deep dark green shade. It's a bit darker actually but my bright lighting lightens up jellies ^^. At first it applies quite streaky and patchy, but after 3 coats you get an nice and even result, with a good squishy finish and some VNL. It doesn't try particularly shiny so I used a topcoat to finish off.

Dance Legend Glass 1058 is a purple shade - in the bottle it looks like a redtoned brown, on the first layer it looks bright purple but after 3 coats you end up with a grape color, very pretty. You can see on my tips how purple it is at first! This covers better than 1055, I barely could see any VNL after 3 coats. Again, topped with topcoat for a luscious shiny finish.

Overall conclusion
The formula on these could be better - if you want to use them for a jelly sandwich they might be too streaky in single layers. Build up alone they provide a gorgeous squishy finish. While being a bit streaky at first, the formula is easy to handle. It isn't too thin and clean-up didn't really give issues either. I do suspect these might stain so be careful and maybe double up on basecoat when wearing these.

What do you think of jellies? Love them, hate them? Tell me in the comments!

  1. Great swatches!! I am scared about staining as well so haven't had the guts to wear mine. :D That green reminds me of Nars Zulu? I love it!

    I think this was a very lovely collection (especially because of a very friendly retail price in Russia), and they pair nicely with Dance Legend glitters from Round Space collection. I topped 1055 with Annihilation from Round Space collection. My favorite from the Glass collection is 1057, teal jelly.

  3. I love jellies but too bad these are kinda streaky. This series reminds me of the Nfu-Oh syrup polishes!

  5. Vampy jelly polishes are totally my jam, so it's no surprise that I love these ones. Particularly that purple!

  7. Oh my, your nails are pure perfection. They make me want to buy both shades (even though they are absolutely stunning on their own as well - jellies!).

  8. I think it's great that with the shade 1058 you can build up the color and it's different depending on how many layers you apply :) It's such a beautiful color and it looks really classy on you :)

  12. The green is so pretty, but I think it's so cool how that red turns almost a berry purple with more layers! I don't usually wear jellies on their own, but they look great!
