Dance Legend Emma is a stunning periwinkle nail polish from the Binary collection. You may remember me showcasing Dance Legend Linda a few months ago. Well, since this incredibly popular collection has just got back in stock, I’m featuring my second favourite blue nail colour!
Just like all colours from the collection, Emma is a beautiful shimmering duochrome nail polish and is so much more than your typical periwinkle blue! The multi-dimensional shimmer paired with a crisp shade of blue makes Emma perfect for a statement manicure. It’s feminine, yet edgy and is perfect for the weekend or a vacation. Being a cool colour, Emma is fine for both winter and summer. So whether your skiing or swimming on a tropical beach your nails will be noticed!
Now let the photos do the talking and for technical details, read the full review below…
Formula: Dance Legend Emma has the new generation patented Binary formula which is a very long-lasting (almost like gel) and very glossy. It’s 3-free and cruelty free. The polish is on a sheer side. To achieve an opaque coverage you’d need 2 – 3 layers. Alternatively, wear it over a similar creme nail polish, i.e. 1 coat of periwinkle creme + 2 coats of Dance Legend Emma. On the photos I’m wearing 3 thin coats of Emma and a top coat.
Application: It was relatively easy to apply, the brush is just a regular Dance Legend brush. The nail polish yields in a perfectly smooth coverage without any streaks or brush lines, which is great.
Finish/Colour: Dance Legend Emma is a crisp periwinkle nail polish with a shimmering duochrome effect shifting from silver to purple. However, unlike in the usual duochromes Emma‘s colour shifts are not overriding the base colour, it remains periwinkle while the shimmer changes the colour. This beautiful effect hard to describe and even harder to photograph, you just have to see it!
Nail Art: Due to semi sheer formula Emma would be perfect for any kind of gradient nail art or as a base for nail art. However, this nail polish is so beautiful, I personally prefer to wear it on it’s own.
Dupes: there are definitely no dupes for Dance Legend Emma. The entire Dance Legend Binary collection is so unique, you won’t find colours with shimmering duochrome effect like this anywhere else.
Wearability: Very long-lasting, it lasted 10 days with a top coat.
Extra Notes: Dance Legend suggests to wear Binary nail polishes with a Binary top coat. However, I find any other good top coat works just fine.
Overall Impression: Once again, Dance Legend proves their status of special effect polish pioneers. Dance Legend Emma is a one of a kind shimmering duochrome turquoise and in my humble opinion, it’s a must have nail colour for every nail polish connoisseur.
