Dance Legend Excalibur & Sword Of Mercy

Hey hey :) Here's 2 polishes of the Dance Legend Steel collection, a collection with 12 metallic polishes. When I think of metallics, I think of stamping, so of course I had to test stamping with these! They do work, however, these 2 aren't 1-coaters and are slightly thin, so I'll list them as somewhat sheer on my stamping polish page. I think they might be less suited for images with large areas, on such images it shows better when a polish isn't covering as well, and on darker basecolors, where you'd want perfect coverage. You'll find swatches and more about these 2 stamped manis further down!

Excalibur covered in 2 thicker coats, and is shown here without base/top coat. As always with metallics, little bumps and ridges on the nail show well, and a ridgefilling basecoat would help to make the result as smooth as possible.

Again 2 thicker coats, no base/top coat. In case you're wondering, the less good transfers (like the little holes in the dots here and there) aren't caused by these polishes or the plate, but by me trying to work with plastic scrapers! I've always used metal scrapers, and no matter what kind of plastic a scraper is made of, I tend to scrape worse with it, getting small gaps in the design. But I'd rather not damage my plates anymore, so I figured to keep practicing :) The dotted image below is one that I didn't really notice before, it didn't stand out between the other designs on the plate, yet when I noticed it I wondered why. It's such a cute and easy dotted image! I think I'll be using it again soon, don't you think it'll be perfect for a pastel Spring mani?

If you love metallics, this collection offers you various colors, and even though they're a bit thin, they aren't runny and apply easily. They dry fast as well, so that's all fine! But if you use metallics just for stamping, I'd choose other ones, simply because I don't think these'll work as well on all colors and with all images. Thanks for looking!

As always, you can find the Dance Legend polishes on their website and in various other webshops.
