Dance Legend 350 review and swatches

So here I am with the very first post at vicerimus. I'm very excited, to be honest!

The other day i had my manicure and i asked to paint my nails with OPI 'I Have A Herring Problem'. Today i had to remove it, but i've decided i totally need it in my stash! The weather in Moscow has been terrible lately, it's the middle of April and the snow started to melt only a couple of days ago, so I decided to go for something bright. Maybe that'll help conjure some sun and warmness, who knows :3 Anyway, enough rambling and on to the nails!

Dance Legend is a russian nail polish brand. Their niche is 'affordable good quality' and the price varies from about 5$ to 10$ depending on the texture of the polish. They have all kinds of polishes: cremes, jellies, thermo, magnetic etc. etc. My only problem with them is that I've always been sceptical about russian products, and given the price of, say, China Glaze is approximately the same, I'd rather choose CG over DL.

DL 350 is a jelly that is nearly opaque in 2 rather thin coats. It looks completely opaque indoors, but is a tiny bit transparent outdoors. It's not like you can clearly see the smile of your nail but rather a hint of it.

The application is fair. I didn't notice any streaking or pooling. While the first coat appears quite sheer, the second makes things more opaque. Use a more solid second coat for a comptelely opaque look.

The polish itself has a satin finish, and I'd even call the color neon. As I'm a fan of gloss, I always use a top coat over it. As for color, DL 350 is a beautiful and very bright pink, almost a fuchsia.

As for longevity, nail polishes don't live a long life on my nails, speaking frankly, but this one is quite durable to my standarts, staying there for 3 days with minor chipping on condition that I use a base and a top coat (I've never tried wearing a polish without them, though, - i'm too afraid my nails will become yellow or something else)

Well, this is it for today, thank you for your attention + the comment box is all yours :)
