Digital Dozen does All that Glitters

It's another Digital Dozen week already, and I really thought I had another week up my sleeve before it started, so I'm afraid to say that I'm starting the new year chasing my tail from the beginning.  The upside is that I had already painted these nails and wore them whilst I was away in Queensland before Christmas, and I'm the queen of taking shortcuts!

This mani also provided me with a new found favourite product. The Dance Legend Binary polishes.  I've swatched various Binary shades before, but this was the first real time I put them to a wear test.  I did a gradient base of two Bi shades. Lilia (the pink) and Lisa (the blue). On their own they are both amazing polishes, smooth and gloss to apply and great pigmentation.  

Cause a regular gradient just wasn't going to cut it two weeks before Christmas, I had to add some bling. So I burnished in some of the holo flake powder.  There are bunches of places you can get this stuff now.  I got my little baggie from Spectraflair4U early last year I think, and it's still only $6 USD a gram.  After that was rubbed in I applied a coat of the Dance Legend Binary top coat.

Did this last on my nails. Well let me tell you that this would have survived a nuclear explosion I think.  I gave my nails some pretty harsh treatment whilst away. We visited the Gold Coast theme parks for 7 days straight, including full days at Wet n Wild. At the end of it I only had a little bit of tip wear.  

I've actually started using the Binary top coat as my go-to top coat for the last month instead of Seche Vite, which is really quite shocking for me, cause I'm a Seche Vite girl through and through. Sure, the Binary top coat doesn't dry quite as quick as Seche, but I sure can't beat the staying power when I want my mani to last for several days. 

Dance Legend polishes provided for consideration.
