Dance Legend Sub-Zero Nail Polish Review

I first saw this nail polish on Bunnytail Nails blog (check out the awesome nail designs there, you won't be disappointed!) and thought it looked nice. The idea of a thermo polish with black and blue-green stuck, and eventually I just had to hunt eBay for it! This is Sub-Zero by Dance Legend. It's a thermo active polish, meaning that it changes shade depending on the temperature it's in. In warm conditions the polish base is a blue with hints of green. In cold it goes black.



What really makes Sub-Zero stand out from other thermo polishes I've tried is the amount of shimmer and flakies in it. The polish has green shimmery flakes and very fine copper shimmer in it, making it change tone depending on the light as well. The flakes and shimmer give it depth and work perfectly with both the blue base and the black base colour. It's also the only thermo polish I've come across that actually almost always makes a visible transition effect while in room temperatures.


I have acrylic nails at the moment, that might affect how the thermo effect works, but on my nails it's absolutely gorgeous. When I go out, the polish turns dark, and when I come back in, it makes my nails have a lovely smooth gradient from blue to black.

Outside temperature (simulated with cool water ;P)

Sub-Zero is satin finish, but glossy top coat makes the polish even more vivid. You need 3-4 coats to get an opaque result, but the polish goes on nicely and does not streak easily. I've been wearing Sub-Zero only for two weeks and I think I might neglect my other polishes because of how wonderful it is!



Transitioning from cold to warm.

  1. I remember my middle school had a big phase for color-changing polishes, but I'd forgotten about them until pretty recently. This one looks really elegant, especially on your longer nails!

    1. Thanks! I'm a sucker for nail polish effects, I like to play with colours and having three looks with one polish is great!

  3. Tää on niin kaunis lakka! Mä en uskalla lakata näillä termoilla, kun pelkään, että pikkupullot kuluu loppuun. On mullakin ongelmat ;). Sun kynnet on muuten todella kauniin muotoiset. Mun tekee kamalasti mieli taas tätä mallia kynsiin, mutta kanien masut vaatii niin paljon hierontaa karvanlähtöaikaan, etten uskalla laittaa teräviä kynsiä. Kanit ennen kynsiä!
