Hey guys. It’s super late on Monday and I know that you’re all probably in bed already. But I’m writing anyway because it’s Monday and I want to show you my manicure.

If you aren’t aware by now I am a huge nerd. A huge nerd with a nail polish obsession. I’ve recently become intrigued by all the indie brands of nail polish available on sites like e bay and Esty. So early last week I decided to peruse all of the offerings on Esty. Boy did I hit the mother load! There are too many cool shops and concepts to name, so I decided to place and order with one shop just to see what I’d get.

If you remember a moment ago when I said I’m a nerd, then you will understand why I had a fan girl meltdown over the Big Bang Theory themed polishes from Different Dimension . I had to get all 4 (yes HAD to!). The collection takes some of the most well known elements of the show and translates them into polish. What I really appreciate about them, is that they are all thoughtfully crafted and spot on representations of my favorite idioms and motifs from the show. I feel like these are the polishes I would create myself as a  fan.

I was stalking the mailman all week. When they finally arrived Saturday,  I rushed to my manicure station (read my bed). I chose to try Penny!!! first.

Penny!!! Uniquelybrandid Label Shot

I was honestly not sure if I should even buy this color, because I’m generally not a huge fan of coppery or bronzey polishes. But when I opened my package I was glad I went with my gut. Penny!!! is a gorgeous shimmery copper base packed with brown and copper micro glitter accented by scattered larger brown and copper hexagonal glitter. But there’s also a fine sprinkling of holographic micro glitter, and it sets this polish on FIRE! It looks just like a bright, shiny, new penny. And the dark brown Glitter adds the look of pennies with a little patina on them. Just a brilliant polish all around!

I really liked the way the polish applied to my nails. The base was somewhat thick, but not clumpy and the glitter distribution was pretty flawless. I hate when I buy a glitter polish with different sized glitter and end up with half of one piece of glitter on my nail that I have to spend a bunch of time fishing out of the bottle. That was definitely not a problem with Penny!!! It was opaque in two coats and I got just the right amount of the glitter to give it amazing dimension.

I can definitely see myself wearing Penny!!! again. It will make a really great fall polish, and even a good summer selection. I can’t wait to give the rest of these polishes a test drive.  I think I’ll give Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty a try next week. I hope you’ll come back and visit then!

In the meantime, head on over to the MANICure Monday link up to see what’s going on with the other ladies this week.

  3. I have been trying to stay away from Etsy and those polishes but I follow quite a bit of people on Instagram who swatch them so I know I will be venturing out soon!

    I love that color and it looks nice on your skin!
