Dance Legend Candy Flakes Swatch and Review

Press sample
Hope you had a great weekend, ours is winding down! Big big things happening over here as we slowly start to prepare our house to sell in preparation for a move clear across the country. EEK. 
I'll be doing my best to keep up with blog work, and right now I have my second of many Dance Legend reviews for you. I've already reviewed 4 from the Mist Way collection and today I have 4 out of the 6 Candy Flakes collection. These are all three coats and all have an excellent formula. At the end of the post I show you each one layered over an opaque shade.

Dance Legend Mist Way Collection Swatch and Review

press sample
Hi friends! Thanks for sticking with me! I know my posts over the last 6 months have been somewhat inconsistent. It really threw me into a tailspin when my husband lost his job 6 months ago. I'm happy and relieved to report that he just got hired by an awesome company...but it means us relocating from NY to Seattle and quite frankly...I'm petrified and beyond heartbroken to leave my family and my home. Sigh. OK, enough of that for now. I am going to do my best to keep up with blogging but as always, family comes first.

Today I have my first post with Dance Legend polishes, and many more to come. I have 4 from the Mist Way Collection of 12 shades. All swatches are 3 cts with very good formulas!

 Hope you all are doing great today! We just celebrated my little ones turning five. Goes so fast, doesn't it? We had a great party and then I promptly got sick. Boo! Luckily it was a short one, but I've had this mani done for a while and wanted to get it up. Perfect for an Easter day, dots and chevrons always make me think of Easter eggs. You too?

press sample
Happy Wednesday to you! I'm in a productive mood and have some designs I created and haven't gotten a chance to post yet to show off today.
I have an interesting look I created with 4 out of the 5 shades from the Modern Family Holiday collection.

 I wanted to play up the squares theme from the squares glitters in Spark the Conversation.
