Hedgehog in the fog
Hope everyone had a good weekend. On Saturday morning I met with some fellow Liverpool bloggers for a lovely morning of coffees and shopping before meeting my man to go and see Guardians of the Galaxy. All in all it’s been a nice relaxed weekend.
The highlight of my weekend was bringing home my nailmail on Friday evening and finally getting to see the polish loveliness that I treated myself to with the Rainbow Connection discount voucher I got at the NWNMEET!
I have spent weeks stalking the website to try and get my hands on the Cirque Kontiki collection, and managed to scoop up two of the three, (damn you Dear Dahlia…you will be mine one day!) and will be posting separately on those soon, however what I wanted to show you today was the delectable Hedgehog in the fog* by Dance Legend.
For those who don’t know Dance Legend are a Russian polish brand who make all 3-free polish. I first became aware of them when seeing the gorgeous holo polishes they produced.
Hedgehog in the fog is a wonderfully subtle polish. From afar it is a slate grey creme but up close or in direct sunlight the irridescent flakes wink and sparkle; making this an ideal polish for those who wouldn’t dare wear glittery flakies in the office (shhh, we won’t tell if you don’t)
Grey polishes seem to be having a big comeback lately. Perhaps it’s us lacquer-heads way of rebelling against the brights and neons of summer. Hedgehog in the fog leans a little bluer in these bright sunlight shots but is more of a true-grey in ‘real life’.
It was the colour that drew me to this colour but the name was the clincher. We used to have a regular hedgehog visitor in our old garden. At dusk we’d peek out the bedroom curtains to see him wandering around the garden and sneaking under the garden fence. Such a shame we couldn’t bring him with us to the new house.
This polish is a little sheerer than I’d like. Shown above is three coats. I think if I wear this again I might put another grey underneath to save the precious Hedgehogey loveliness. If you are adverse to VNL (visible nail line) 3 coats is a must!
You can get your own Hedgehog in the fog here for just £8.50.
*No hedgehogs were hurt in the swatching of this polish
I love my first Dance Legends Polish and will definitely be on the look out for more. Do you have a favourite Dance Legends polish? Have you any recommendations for me?
