Dance Legend Candy Flakes Swatches

I have some Dance Legend polishes to show you today, in the form of the Candy Flakes collection! As you may have guessed from the name, this is a flakie collection. Admittedly I'm not usually wild about flakie polishes, but...these are just so pretty!

The Candy Flakes collection consists of 6 flakie polishes with jelly bases and I have 5 to show you today. The formula is good, if a little thin, so I'd recommend thin coats. I've shown them on their own with nothing underneath, but scroll to the bottom if you want to see them over a black base!

Sun Still Sleeps is a bright blue jelly base with colour-shifting flakies, which reminds me of a tropical pool! I used 3 thin coats and top coat. There's still a bit of visible nail line in my pictures, but I think that's down to the lighting because you can't see it in real life.

Lollypop is a bright pink base with rose gold flakies. 3 thin coats shown here, but you may need another coat to cover your nail line fully as it's quite sheer.

Tinsel is an emerald green base with golden green flakies. 3 thin coats 

Final Fantasy is a purple base full of red shimmer and blue/green/purple flakies. None of the others contain shimmer, so this one is special! 

Bite Tonight is a deep brown base with sort of coppery orange flakies. Difficult to describe! 3 thin coats

They look pretty enough on their own, but over black they turn into completely different polishes! I especially love Final Fantasy when applied over black. Shown here is: Lollypop (index finger) Tinsel (middle finger) Final Fantasy (ring finger) and Sun Still Sleeps (pinkie). 

My picks: Final Fantasy and Bite Tonight
If you're only going to buy one, make it: Final Fantasy

The good news is Dance Legend now has a UK distributor in the form of Rainbow Connection! What do you think, will you be picking any up? If you're in the US you can find them at Llarowe.

You can also buy direct from!



  1. Wow! While scrolling down the post I've decided that if I had a chance to buy them, I'd go for Tinsel and Bite Tonight, but after seeing them over black base... I want them ALL :O
    I love how Lollypop loses all it's pink when applied over black, and leaves nails looking like they were on fire.

  2. Oooh, I can't decide which I like best! I think Bite Tonight maybe. Definitely over black. I'm too lazy and like 100% opacity too much not to stick flakies over black. Beautiful swatches as per usual lady.

  3. wow, Final Fantasy over black is totally amazing! :-)

  4. Gosh these are all lovely!

  5. SO much want! Love these polishes - gorgeous swatches as always :)

  6. They are all beautiful, but DAAAAAMMMNNN... Tinsel has my heart <3

    also, have I ever mentioned how jealous I am of your nail beds? Effortless long nails. I want :D

    1. Thank you! ;) I am very lucky to have them...benefit of being tall I think!

  7. Wow, these are all gorgeous, definitely better over black. Great swatches too.

  8. Beautiful swatches. I was hoping to try these too, they look great!

    1. I'd love to see your swatches of these Natalie!

  9. Allie, is there a way to reach you outside of commenting here? I found some of your photos in an iphone app and believe they may be using them without your permission. The photos are linking to your tumblr account. If you would like to email me at manictalons @ yahoo . com, I'll be happy to give you the details. ~Michelle
