dance legend bag of bones (koschei bessmertni) (anna gorelova)

today's gorgeousness is bag of bones aka koschei bessmertni from the anna gorelova 2014 collection for dance legend.

i think that, at this point, every nail polish aficionado has heard of the russian blogger anna gorelova. her swatches are beyond gorgeous, so it's not a surprise that the amazing russian brand made (now at least six) collaboration collections with her. koschei bessmertni appeared in the first one, inspired by russian fairy tales.

brace yourself, there will be a lot of pictures because this polish is incredibly beautiful. being olive kind of green in the neutral state, the colour shifts to darker and lighter green shades, but also gold and copper. add some scattered holo particles to the mix, and here comes perfection.

picture polish cozy (collaboration shade)

picture polish collaboration line is very versatile, you can find your regular colours (with a twist) or something that might not be everyone's cup of tea. cozy, created with borsch nails in 2017, is one of those shades.

cozy is a very unusual coulour, mustardy-yellowish green with holo flakes. definitely a shade that i am into. it is also a bit of a chameleon, it looks different every time!

a england rose bower (burnes-jones dream)

today i am showing yet another a england polish, rose bower from burnes jones dream collection. this is how they advertise it: "a true deep rose hue kissed with subtle holographic overtones, a scarlet riot of blooming life to keep the princess company"

i already showed one polish from this collection, briar rose, and they have a similar pattern: a gorgeous, deep colour (in the case of rose bower, a cranberry red with some hints of fuchsia) with the scattered holo effect that gives the "inner glow effect", that a england produces beautifully.

formula is amazing as usual, and the polish itself is so pretty that i was shocked that i can enjoy a red one so much! it also looks nice in shade.

dance legend melange 278

this week i continue with another green polish, 278 from dance legend's melange collection.

i was in a search for a perfect creme olive shade, and since i am a fan of dance legend formula and brush, decided to choose number 278 from their melange collection.

it is a rich, olive/camouflage green, a shade that i have a lot of in my wardrobe and love to have on my nails. the formula is buttery, and it's definitely a huge recommendation from me.

zoya jem (mirrors)

one of the zoya beauties is the gorgeous jem from the mirrors collection for 2011.

as i wrote a lot of times, zoya guys really describe their shades perfectly: "dark red-toned purple base with metallic dark pink highlights and subtle gold duochrome flecks".

bottom line, gorgeous. a bit vampy, a bit mysterious. perfect for sunny autumn or winter days, because it is just a bit too heavy for summer, but needs sun to show it's full beauty.
