Happy Monday everyone! This week Mani Monday is jam packed. As you know, I’m becoming a big fan of indie polish brand Different dimension. Well, Missi was kind enough to send me a few samples to review. Before I start with the reviews I want to let you know that I did not pay for these polishes. I have, of course ordered from this shop before. As always, anything I say is my own opinion. If you know me well, you know that nobody can make me say or do anything I don’t want to anyway. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get on to the good stuff!
First up, I have two polishes from the Love’s A Punny Thing Collection.
All Red-y In Love is made up of red, pink, and holographic micro glitter with larger red and pink circle glitter and bright red holographic hearts. It’s sparkly and full of Valentine goodness. As usual, I have swatched two coats of this polish on it’s own. I like to give you an idea of what each creation looks like without any layering , so that you can decide what other colors in your collection might best suit your style or mood.
Aorta Miss You, But I Don’t! is an incredibly pretty combination of fuchsia, purple, and holo micro glitter. There are fuchsia circles and garnet hexes and purple hearts. This one is so jam packed with glitter that my husband asked if there was black glitter in it as well. I was a little confused, but then I realized that the spaces between the glitter in the bottle are so small that the empty space just looks like tiny black glitter! I plan on buying a full size bottle of this, because it is just too gorgeous on the nail.
There are four polishes in the Love’s A Punny Thing collection, and after trying these two I’ll definitely be checking out the other two.
Mystic Falls is a polish inspired by The Vampire Diaries.I have to admit that I’ve never seen the show, so I’m not sure what the inspiration behind this polish is. It’s a black base packed with multi-chrome pigment; so it shifts depending on what light you’re in. I have never had much luck with color shifting polish in the past. They always look so amazing in the bottle, but I never seem to get the same effect on my nails. So obviously I was expecting that this would be another womp womp. But to my surprise it totally came through for me. It shifts from a really pretty pink shimmer, to purple, to a sort of green/ gold/bronze look. It was really hard to capture the full range of color shifting on camera. The bottle shot is the best representation of what you will see when you wear it.
Last, but not least there is Orbital. I was super excited when I saw this included in the samples. I had been eye balling it for a while because it looked so cool. I feel like this is galaxy nails in a bottle. Start off with a black jelly base. Then add in multiple sizes of pink, blue, and purple holographic glitter. The final product makes me want to book a flight into space! I have to warn you, this stuff eats top coat. It’s weird because the others only required one coat of quick dry topcoat to become perfectly smooth, but I had to pile 3 coats on top of this baby to get it smooth. It’s totally worth it IMO.
Did any of these tickle your fancy? Be sure to check out all the other amazing offerings from Different Dimension.
