Oh, hello Monday. Fancy meeting you here. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you had fun. Mine was pretty low key, as usual. But it was also pretty awesome.  Did you watch the Grammys? I watched the second half. Meh. I think I’m past the point of caring about that stuff. I end up spending the whole time making fun of everything.

Anywho, I’m gonna go ahead and get into this nail polish business, cause that’s what we’re here for.

This week I’m going to finish up with my Different Dimension polishes from the Big Bang Theory collection. The last one in the series is Bazinga! This one is a yellow jelly base with small and large  red and yellow hex glitter.

Admittedly, this was probably the most impractical of the set.  It’s a super fun polish, but I don’t wear a bunch of yellow or red, and the combo could make you think more fast food than nail polish chic. But give it a chance, because there are tons of possibilities for wear if you use a little creativity. I layered it over white and black polish, as is pretty customary for glitter toppers I wasn’t a huge fan over white, but black was pretty cool.

Then I decided to do a couple of jelly sandwiches.  If you aren’t familiar with the term, a jelly sandwich is the process of layering a glitter or other polish between two or more layers of a translucent jelly polish. I did two different jelly sandwiches.

For the first one I started with one coat of Essie Clambake. It’s a tomato red jelly that looks absolutely amazing all on its own. Then I layered two coats of Bazinga, and finally another layer of Clambake. I think this look is great if you are tired of just a plain red polish and want to add a little cheeky bit of twinkle.

The second sandwich was made using Zoya OC Cooler. I got this orange jelly with gold micro shimmer a couple of years ago, and haven’t really had a chance to put it to good use. All by itself OC Cooler looks like orange soda. It’s a very fun sunshine-y color.  I did the one 2 one punch with this one again, and it was honestly my favorite of all the combinations I tried.

So there you have it. Options! I’m a giver. Really no need to thank me ;)

Overall, I have been really pleased with all four of the polishes I purchased form Different Dimension. They are high quality and creative. Most of all they are fun! And for me that’s the most important thing in nail polish. Have you given any indie polish brands a try? Which brands would you recommend? I’m always open to suggestions. As usual I will be linking up with the MANICure Monday ladies. You should hop on over. Post your manicure if you’ve got one. It’s loads of fun.
