In the previous post I promised to show you my new Dance Legend nail polishes. Today there will be the 1st one of them, a dark vampy red shade called Caravan from Sahara Crystal collection:
Caravan is a blackened base with purple micro glitter. In the bottle I can also see gold sparkles, but on my nails the gold disappears. Here’s how it looks like behind the glass:
I also took a pic of the contents, in case you are interested to see the formula:
In the pics here you can see 2 coats of Caravan over Lumene Gloss and Care base without a top.
It’s my first liquid sand nail polish, and the finish seems quite unique. I was even surprised of how it looked and felt in real life, not bad at all :) My nails surface was matte and felt rough, almost like sandpaper, but it wasn’t sharp and therefore it didn’t bother me. Let me show you a close up shot:
Overall, the Sahara Crystal collection includes 18 shades, and all of them have this trendy liquid sand finish. I recieved 2 colors for review, one of them being Caravan and the other is called Wine Stone. I haven’t tried Wine Stone on my nails yet, but I took a couple of pics to compare the shades.
Here you can see Dance Legend #15 Caravan and above it there’s #10 Wine Stone (sunlights thru the clouds):
Then I added to the comparison one of my favorite OPI colors – We’ll Always Have Paris (in the middle):
I think Caravan is somehow supposed to look like OPI’s Stay the Night, but the polishes are different. Unfortunately I don’t have STN, but if I get it I’ll sure do a comparison :)
By the way, I was afraid this liquid sand will be a big pain to remove. Actually it wasn’t :) It took longer than a creme nail polish removal but definitely not as bad as glitter removal.
Now I’m looking forward to try Wine Stone, so more swatches are coming soon :)
Thank you for reading! xxx
*The product was sent to me for review
I’m still feeling uncomfortable about the finish – but the color is gorgeous!
Well, it’s not something I’d wear everyday, but the texture is worth trying. I understood liquid sands better when I applied the polish on my nails. Now I’m thinking of ways to use it for nail art :)
Yep, unusual but pretty :)
This looks like a dupe for that black OPI liquid sand nail polish. I like how it looks but still don’t have anything similar :)
Yes, they are pretty much similar. I don’t have Stay the Night but judging by its swatches, OPI’s sand has more glitter and of bigger size. Caravan seems to be a bit darker :)
Pretty for sure, but I would prefer the red sparkles to be more visible I think. Looking forward to Wine Stone (and Fruity Milk pls pls pls!) :) :)
Wine Stone is waiting it’s turn and as for Fruity Milk – will be done :)
Where can I buy this in the US? I love it!!
Hello Stacy :) I’m glad you liked the polish, but I’m afraid Dance Legend is not available in the US :(( It’s a Russian brand and it’s mainly sold in Russia and some former Soviet countries.. Sorry :(
Awww :( Well thanks for your reply!
I am really loving the liquid sand or pixie dust or whatever other name they go by. It is quite different and unique. As you said it, the texture doesn’t really bother even though it feels like sand paper…
Yes, it really is different :) Now after I tried 2 liquid sands I can say that I like them a lot. Each time I wear them I get compliments from ‘normal’ people (read non polish addicts lol) mostly because they are surprised by the sand paper look & feel of my nails :)
