Indie Spotlight: Different Dimension!

Hey everyone!

I hope everyone's week has been great!  We are halfway to the weekend, though most of my readers in the USA are probably preparing to start their weekends early for turkey day!  I am headed home to NYC for Thanksgiving with my family down there, hope you all have great fun and enjoy the holiday however you may be spending it!   And everyone else, enjoy the rest of your weeks as well!

Today I am spotlighting indie polish brand Different Dimension!  Ever since I heard the name of this brand I was intrigued cause I thought the name was cool.  Then I saw the polishes offered in the shop and knew there were great things happening there!

Today I have an assortment of 5 polishes to share with you, and I will have a part 2 post in the upcoming weeks with 4 other shades.  I didn't want to overwhelm you with 9 in one post, plus I am just so busy these days with holiday and wedding planning that my swatch time is limited.

So anyhow, I'll stop rambling and show you all some pretties!

Gumdrops  is a fun white-based glitter polish.  There are teal, pink, purple and iridescent glitter throughout this beauty.  I think this is such a cute look, and I only needed 3 thin coats for the pictured look, though I could have done 2 thicker ones, but I was afraid it would look too "gloppy" if I used thick coats.  This could alternatively be layered over a light base to use less coats, but I like the dimension it gets by wearing it alone.

Blame it on the Pain
Blame it on the Pain is a shimmery navy polish with hints of blue and purple flecks.  This is opaque in two coats and very easy to apply.  I love the finish of this polish, it truly is stunning to look at!  I also like when indie makers create a wearable polish that doesn't involve glitter, not because I dislike glitter (duh, lol), but because it makes the shop more well-rounded in my opinion...offering something for the people who don't care for glitter toppers...(again, just an opinion and not saying there is anything wrong with the sellers who don't offer such polishes.)

...more is a polish that has "pink, white and red hearts, pink, white and red matte hex glitters and a sparkling white glitter."  Most of you already know that I am not usually a fan of shape glitters.  That being said, I don't hate this one, which is saying a lot for me.

This was decidedly harder to work with than the previous two polishes, but it wasn't as hard as some other similar ones I have tried.  It takes a little work to get the different colored hearts out, and I also had trouble picking a base color that didn't clash and yet showed all the different sorts of glitter at play in this mix.  In the end I chose this soft white, although it does allow the white hearts to hide...but everything else looks great against this backdrop.  This would be great for anniversary or valentines nails.  If you enjoy shaped glitters, I think this is a good choice.

Rainbows and Butterflies
Rainbows and Butterflies is a "pearly white jelly base and is packed literally with a ton of rainbow holographic glitters! There are also pink holographic butterflies added"

This is my first time using a polish with butterfly shaped glitters in it.  They actually look cute to me, the shape hater, haha!  I layered it over a light pink shimmer.  I see VNL in these pics but in person there was not any blame the camera!   You can tell how shiny these glitter particles are by the way the light shines on them.  This might be my favorite shape glitter yet, though if I had my way the base would be slightly less pearly, but it's still very nice, and it was easy to work with.

Un-teal We Meet Again
 Un-teal We Meet Again is a glitter topper with different sizes of blue and teal glitters.  It is very densely packed, I only needed one coat for the picture above, which is layered over a pastel teal cream.  This is a very standard, but very pretty glitter polish, with a good formula and loads of glitter.

Overall, Different Dimension polishes offer a little something for everyone.  There is currently a great holiday collection listed in her shop with many great color choices!

The polishes retail for $8.50 per full sized bottle, but for a limited time (2 weeks starting today) my readers are being offered a generous 20% discount on purchases made using the discount coupon code "FIXATION20" at checkout!
