I didn’t do a Mani Monday last week. I was out of town and I just didn’t feel like rushing to put up a post. So this week you get 2 manis for the price of one! I mean reading this blog is free, so maybe two for free? Whatever. I’m still going through my Big Bang Theory polishes from Different Dimension on etsy. I have to tell you I’m kind of in love with them. This week I’m going to show you Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty and Rock,Paper,Scissors,Lizard,Spock. If you don’t get those references, then get yourself a Netflix account and start waiting at the mailbox for some DVDs.
First up, Soft Kitty Warm Kitty.
This one is a beautiful pale grey crelly (jelly cream), with various sizes of white, grey, and holographic glitter scattered throughout. It’s very sheer on it’s own, which I happen to love. All of my pictures show three thin coats, and you can still see my nail very well through the polish. If you want something more opaque, you can always layer it over another gray, white, or nude polish.
I like the way the grey base affects the tone of the glitter in this one. The holo hexes can appear light grey or even white, when sandwiched between layers of this polish. They then stay hidden until the sunlight hits them and the beautiful rainbow is released. I just love little surprises like that.
Next we have Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock.
This one is my favorite of the four polishes in the collection! It’s a transparent medium blue base filled with teeny white glitter as well as larger white, grey, light green,and light blue glitter. It’s just such a fun polish. The first time I wore this I layered it over Zoya Tao, a shimmery pearl grey.
It was such a pretty combination. The slight blue tint of RPSLS added a little dimension to the look. I even got a compliment on my nails when I took the bean to his check up!
I also did a couple of shots showing two coats of RPSLS on its own .
I love the teeny tiny white satin glitter in this polish. It reminds me of all those times in grade school when someone would spill the holes from the 3 hole punch all over the floor. I imagine the larger white pieces represent the rocks, the shiny grey are scissors, the light green are lizard, and the pale blue represent Spock. I cannot explain how much I appreciate all the attention to detail. The saturation and distribution of the glitter in this polish is perfect. The base helps the glitter to flow evenly onto the nail to get just the right amount of glitter in each coat. I hate not having enough glitter, but having too much is even worse. This lays out in an even layer across the nail and doesn’t look or feel chunky. It is slightly textured, but not gross feeling, the way some over saturated glitter polishes can be.
So far I’m really happy with my purchases from Different Dimension. I’m really glad that I got such great quality on my first venture into indie polishes. Make sure to come back next week to see the final polish in this collection.
Until then, make sure you stop by the MANICure Monday post on Lipgloss and Binky to see what else is new in polish this week.
