Dandy Nails Love Affair & Thrill Of It

Hello hello!!  You'll have to excuse my brief and excited post but I couldn't wait to share these with you!  And it's a good thing I am doing it now because the Dandy Nails Dandygraphic collection will be available TODAY!  11/15 at 1:00 pm PST.  I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Sandy behind Dandy Nails and she's one of the coolest gals I've met!  I also got the privilege of  swatching all of the Dandygraphics for the Love, Preview event that recently took place in Southern California.  Let me just tell you that these holos are all amazing!  I only used 1 coat for the swatch sticks and wow.  Just wow!  I have 2 to share right now but there are 5 in the collection.  She also has a couple holiday glitters coming out as well!  You can purchase Dandy Nails at the Etsy shop.  You can also follow Dandy Nails on Facebook and Instagram (dandynails).  

This is Love Affair.  I love it!  It's an amazing color with an amazing formula.  I have one ONE coat!    Love Affair is a dusty red with some mauve undertones.  It's not too bright and not too deep, just a perfect every day shade.  Then there's the holo.  Its gorgeous!  It's almost a hybrid between being linear and scattered - can it be both?  Sure why not!  The formula was smooth and creamy and applied like butter.  I used 1 layer of topcoat and I think it made the holo even better!


This is Thrill Of It.  I adore this one too.  It's a mink grey-brown color that is so hard to describe.  You really have to see this one in person to understand the color.  Again the formula and application were impeccable on this polish.  I did use 2 coats for this one but if you use 1 you get a lighter, more golden toned color.  The holo effect is much more linear on Thrill Of It.  I used 1 layer of topcoat and the holo was not diminished.
