Miss D Dance Til Dawn

I received this polish in a giveaway from You've Got Nail. As Miss D is an Australian brand, I would never have tried this otherwise...shipping costs, anyone? However, I'm very glad to have gotten a chance to try this - for a start, the bottles are completely adorable:

And here are three (or two? but I think it's three...kind of sad that I did my nails last night and can't remember how many coats I used) coats of Dance Til Dawn, with a Piggy Polish sticker on the thumb:

indoors, artificial light
outdoors, shade
outdoors, sun

The sun! It's the sun! I haven't been outside with my camera AND the sun for several days was very exciting. :) Excuse my poor fingers, especially the terrible hangnail on my first finger - my hands really, really do not like the extremely dry weather we've been having lately. Anyway, you didn't come here to read about my poor dry hands. Dance Til Dawn is a bright purple with bluish silver shimmer, and I am very happy with the color and the application. While it doesn't dry completely glossy (this is with one coat of Rush), it was easy to apply, even with the short brush, and it dries very quickly. I feel like this would be a really good base for Sally Hansen DVD, and I may try that later today. Because the shimmer isn't purple, but silver, Dance Til Dawn is sort of a purple-silver duochrome, but it's a subtler effect than most duochromes. Either way, it's a very pretty color, and I'm really glad I got the chance to try it.

Here are my new and new-to-me blogs of...well, whatever time period it's been since I last did this. Most of them fall into the new-to-me category and I'm sure you probably follow several of them, but if you haven't, definitely check them out.


  1. Oh my Gosh cuteness! The bottle and color are sweet!

  8. Twister- Thank you! I use Hard as Hoof cuticle cream and several other products which I really like. However, I feel like whatever I use, I have to use it constantly in the winter or my hands just dry out again.
