Today I have something really special for you! The lovely Missi Barry from Different Dimension sent me some polishes from her Christmas collection for swatches and review. So I won't keep you any longer! Scroll down to see the awesomeness that is her polishes!
The collection is inspired by the song 'Santa Baby'. I received three mini's of 'I'll wait up for you dear', 'Santa baby' and 'I've been an awful good girl'.
The first polish I'll show you is I'll wait up for you dear. It has a clear base and is packed with green and red glitter. I've read someone describe it as Christmas in a bottle. It won't be enough to slap three to four coats on your nails and call it Christmas, I'd recommend layering this polish. Might make it even more attractive?
|One coat, pale fingers (sorry)|
The glitters distribute evenly over the nail, no problems there. It also dries pretty quickly. I just had problems getting a straight edge but that's the problem with any glitter polish. Layering this over some 'underwear' (I still giggle at the word) should do the trick.
I admit it's pretty, but I've never been one for the green and red Christmas colors.
The next polish is Santa baby. This is a pretty one! This one also has a clear base, with some big white and red hex glitter, lots of medium pink and white hex glitter and tiny tiny tiny red, white and pink glitter. Plus, this baby had a surprise. I didn't even see it until it was on my nails, blind chicken that I am... HOLOGRAPHIC MICROGLITTER!!!!! It is SO beautiful!
You can go on coatin' 'till the cows come home, but you ain't never gonna get this baby opaque! The microglitter is not very visible in these photo's. I've noticed that it flashes more when there's not too much light. Then the prettiness gets a chance to shine!
Please ignore the yellowness of my tips, they really aren't that discolored but the bright white in the polish makes it look that way.
I can see myself wearing this again for Valentine's day, and then in spring... It's really and all year round polish.
It's also a great polish for layering, so I made you an example of how to give this polish what it deserves! I layered it over silver :D
The third and last (ahww) polish I will show you is I've been an awful good girl. It has a sort of white base with a mother of pearl kind of glow to it. There's also purple and pink holographic hex glitter in medium, small and micro size. It has a beautiful effect when you turn and turn and turn and turn your fingers in the light. And turn and turn and turn...... :D
I've gone ahead and just put three coats on. You can still see a little bit of my nail tip but for me, it wasn't annoying. Just some people might want to put some white under this polish first.
And that's the Christmas collection already! Three beautiful polishes and I love them! I think my absolute favorite is Santa baby. There are just so many possibilities with layering. And. It. GLITTERS.
You can buy these polishes full-sized in the Different Dimension Etsy shop. They are $8,50 per bottle, so that works out to €6,85 for us European girls. I've already placed an order for two more polishes from Different Dimension and I'm waiting impatiently for them to freakin' arrive!
Oh yeah shipping went superfast too, it took a little over a week for my package to get from the US to the Netherlands. Thank you so much Missi!
Go over to her Facebook page to keep up with new collections. She also has regular discounts that you will love.
I received all of the polishes in this article as a press sample for an honest review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced in any way other than the quality of the product itself.
