Different Dimension (Part Three: Finale)

As promised for after lunch, here are the final two polishes in my review of Different Dimension polishes. I saved these for last because I had the most trouble capturing all the beauty these two posess, so I took more than the normal amount of photos of each one.


"Inner Goddess" is another polish inspired by the popular series "50 Shades of Gray."  
It is absolutely packed with iridescent color shifting glitters! 
I did a "skittles" mani, layering it by itself and over 4 different colors so you can see how versatile it is!

Below is one coat over each color.

Below, two coats alone on my thumb.

 Above, slightly blurred to show off the color shift!
Below, under a yellow lamp light. Surprisingly quite accurate coloring, for layering it over black (Index finger)

Of all the polishes, this was the trickiest to work with, but it was not difficult by any means. It was a bit thicker than the others is all. 


Finally, the last one.
"On Wednesday's We Wear Pink", another polish inspired by the movie "Mean Girls."
This has pink holo glitters, different shades of pink hexes, and iridescent/color shifting glitter in a pink jelly base!

For the photos below, two coats were used. You can also layer this over a pink base if you prefer!
Under bright lamp light:

 Indirect daylight/office lights:

Here you can really see some of the color shifting glitters!
 And another indirect light shot :)

This was another one that was slightly on the thicker side, I wonder if it is the color shifting glitters in these two that help make it that way? Either way, I am pleased as punch! This is another one I would like to own a big size of :)

Happy Painting, Happy Holidays, and thanks for reading!

Different Dimension (Part Two)

After moving, broken nails, a massive photo loss, and holiday shopping.... I have finally been able to bring to you the remaining Different Dimension polishes I was sent to review! I have broken it up into two remaining posts, one coming before lunch and the other after lunch! I will let these beauties talk for themselves... because like always, Missi Barry, mastermind of these polishes, does not disappoint with her beautiful creations.


The first one today is "That's So Fetch", which was inspired by the movie "Mean Girls"
This was the only one of all she sent me that did not have a label on it, but Missi did confirm that it is That's So Fetch :)

As you can see, lovely shades of purple, blue, and iridescent glitters that change colors as the light hits! I layered two light coats over Essie's "Lilacism" and L'Oreal's "Butterfly Kisses" for the above photos.


Next, inspired by the popular book, Missi brings us "50 Shades"
I was pleased that it was darker shades of gray instead of silvers. I think this is a great glitter to go over almost any base color!

 I layered two light coats over China Glaze "Elephant Walk" and Sinful Colors "Mint Apple" for the above photos.


Then, comes a favorite of mine. "Space Camp" - packed full of silver holo glitter in all sizes. This is quite an eye-catcher!

Just look at how it sparkles! I layered two coats over L'Oreal's "The Muse's Attitude." I wanted a dark base so you could really see every little silver holo glitter POP! :)

To find these, and many more of her beautiful polishes, check out her Etsy shop!

Until lunch!

Dollish Polish: Legend of Zelda Duo!


It's been too long since my last post. I sincerely apologize for such a lapse! This morning instead of bringing you the rest of my Different Dimensions swatches, I am sharing with you the Legend of Zelda duo made by Dollish Polish. Originally this WAS going to be the other DD post, until I got to work, ready to knock it out, and realized.... those photos are saved on my home computer! I never dropboxed them to my work computer! EGAD! I will have that up for you tonight, or tomorrow. PINKY PROMISE!

So, if any of you know me, you understand my love and devotion to all things Nintendo. Specifically, Mario and Zelda. I had longed for this duo for many months.. always missing the restocks, and never finding it available for swap as a duo! One day, OverallBeauty   announced them in stock, just as I was leaving work for the day. I stayed 5 minutes late and mission accomplished! They were finally mine :)

Without further ado, I bring to you the Zelda duo layered over Zoya's Tracie.

First Photo: Hero of Time over Zoya's Tracie, in afternoon sunlight.
I did different layers of Hero of Time, to show how buildable it is. Index and Pinky are One Coat, Middle finger is Two Coats, and Ring finger is Three Coats.

Second Photo: Direct Sunlight, slightly over exposed, slightly blurred to show off the sparkle!

Another shot in afternoon sunlight.

 Better exposed, more true to color without the golden glow of afternoon sun.
I just love how pretty it looks over the light springy green! This is a beautiful green, brown, and gold polish. It was super easy to apply. In fact, my only problem was on the ring finger, I did not quite wait long enough before applying Seche Vite, the quick dry top coat, so I had *slight* shrinkage by the tip of my nail. Lesson learned! 

Next, Hylian Princess over Zoya's Tracie!
This is a beautiful glitter polish as well. Different sizes of white, purple, and gold glitters. I followed the same application as Hero of Time: Index and Pinky are One Coat, Middle is Two Coats, and Ring is Three Coats.

Photo taken in indirect sunlight.

A slightly blurred shot to show off some sparkle in the bottle.
This was another super easy polish to apply. There's no fishing for any bigger glitters, and removal of each was no more difficult than the average glitter!

With each of these polishes, I prefer the one coat or two coat look versus the almost full coverage of 3 coats. To each their own though! You can still find these polishes available from Overall Beauty at times, as well as Llarowe or even try Dollish Polish directly! You never know!

As always, thanks for reading xo
