Tea Beauty Mint Leaf & Dance Legend Topcoat For Dark Polish #608 & Dance Legend Provence #4 Petunia

Hey everybody!

Whew! That title sounds daunting, right?  It’s really not that bad.  You all know I’m obsessed with Dance Legend polishes. I may have just got 20 of them in the mail! (they were on sale – OK?!)  So let’s talk about these three polishes.


Tea Beauty Mint Leaf.  I bought this on clearance at Walgreens in 2013. I don’t know if the brand is even still being sold there.  This has a very nice formula for a pastel.  The first coat is a little streaky, but evens and levels out at the second coat.  I see a very pale blue leaning aqua tinted white when I look at this polish.  I also think this brand is scented. I noticed a faint tea smell just after I painted my nails, but it didn’t last very long. It may be strong, I don’t seem to smell as well as some of you. 🙂  I used 2 coats plus topcoat for the pictures.

Then I added on one of my new sale Dance Legend’s.  Topcoat for Dark Polish #608 is a lightly tinted base with blue to purple shifting shimmer. Very nice over this light color (the tinted base changed the color a little bit, but I liked it) and I bet it really pops over a dark color as it’s intended by the name of the collection.  I used 2 coats plus topcoat. I didn’t take any pictures after this stage.

Then came Dance Legend #4 Petunia from the Provence Collection.  This is a glitter topper that has a clear base with light purple and aqua glitter, a pop of small red glitter and some small white glitter also.  For this one, I dabbed a bit of glitter at the base of my nail and then carefully swept it up and out. Dabbing in where it needed to go.  For the extra “dabs” I like to just use the glitter that is hanging out inside the neck of the bottle. This way you don’t get a lot of extra clear base so (hopefully) you won’t get bubbles.  I used 1-ish dabbed on coats and topcoat for the pictures.
