Today we're going to be taking a gander at the Dandy Nails Winter Collection! It consists of five polishes, and I think they all fit nicely together without being too similar.
Bory-Alice is a lovely thing. It's blackened jelly base accented with blue to purple duochromatic flecks was opaque for me in three coats. Application was easy and it did show a bit of extra sparkle in person!
Cashmere Night is a matte finish purple polish with bits of blue and pink added for visual interest. I think the name is totally apt and it's cool to see some indies coming out with polishes of varied finishes. Cashmere Night went on pretty well. I used three coats to smooth out a few minor bumps but it was opaque in two.
Here is Cashmere Night with topcoat.
Chilled Down is a cream colored jelly base with blue and gold flakes. This is my very favorite in the collection! I only needed two coats for the opacity below and the formula was quite easy to work with. I think the color combinations in this polish are just lovely, and the gold breathes a nice bit of energy into the mix.
Highest Ground is a frosty baby blue with blue microshimmer. The photo shows three coats. While I'm not usually a fan of frosts, I found myself admiring this one on my nails. It looks very wintry, like soft, newly fallen snow and a blue sky. Makes me want to go skiing! The other plus is that, unlike most frosts, I did not have visible brushstrokes!
Finally, we have Moonglow, a gunmetal metallic shade with a faint holographic effect. I needed two coats for opacity in person, but for photographs I used three coats. It applied quite nicely!
Here is Moonglow in direct light.
Which ones are calling your name? I've gotta give it up to Chilled Down and Bory-Alice personally, but I love the variation of finishes and effects in this collection!
