Different Dimension Halloween 2015 Anomalous-Phenomenon Collection Swatches & Review

Hiiii friends! How is your October going? Mine is going swell because I have another Halloween collection to share with you today! Indie brand Different Dimension has put out a six shade collection for the season called Anomalous-Phenomenon, which means "that which is not sufficiently explained by science or inferred knowledge". This collection is "dedicated to those who are always on the hunt for the unknown," which totally describes me! I am a firm believer in science and logic, but there's always more we don't know about the universe, amirite??

EMF (which stands for electromagnetic field) is a dark red jelly polish with holographic microglitter. The jelly mostly overtakes the glitter and gives us a deep look with some sparkly bits popping out, a red galaxy! This was on the thicker side but I found it a bit runny too. I would take care not to get too much on your brush and use thin coats. I used three.

Chasing Shadows is a dark violet jelly polish with holographic microglitter. This had a thinner formula than EMF, but was still a little runny. I only needed two coats on this one.

Static Vision is a forest green jelly with holographic microglitter. This has a similar formula to EMF, thicker but a bit runny. This would be a great Halloween or Christmas polish in my opinion, love it! Three coats.
Different Dimension Static Vision

EVP (which stands for electronic voice phenomena) is a black jelly polish with holographic microglitter. This one was more thin and also a bit runny. It only required two coats for opacity though. I think this one dried a little grittier than the other, but one coat of top coat covered any texture completely.
Different Dimension EVP

Knock Once For Yes is a burnt orange (pumpkin spice!) with holographic microglitters. This one seemed the creamiest out of all the microglitters, maybe more of a crelly than a jelly base. Opaque on two coats.
Different Dimension Knock Once For Yes

Full Spectral is a white crelly polish with different sizes of hex and dot glitters in black, neon yellow, purple, orange, and green. I found the formula on this to be pretty easy going and typical of a glitter-full crelly, kinda sheer on the first coat but built up nicely in three thin coats.
Different Dimension Full Spectral

These are being released tonight, Friday, October 2nd at 9pm EST on the Different Dimension website. The microglitters are priced at $8.75 each while the crelly Full Spectral will be specially priced at $5! How do you like these spooky shades?? I'm in love with them all, but the red and orange are my favorites!

ALIQUID Lacquer Adopt A Shelter Dog Charity Polish Swatch & Review

Happy October my cookies! This year has totally flown by, I don't know where it has gone! I have a special polish from indie brand ALIQUID Lacquer to show you today, a charity polish that benefits the ASPCA for Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! Below is the press release for the polish they created called See Spot Run.
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! This limited edition polish will only be available in October. We will donate $5 from each purchase to the ASPCA! Each order will also include a free magnet featuring our dog Trudy's pawprint (it's the perfect size for your Helmer drawer!). We're aiming to collect $500, but we can only do it with your help!
About 3.9 million dogs enter U.S. shelters every year, and 1.2 million dogs are euthanized (800,000 of them pit bulls and pit bull mixes like Trudy). Adopt a Shelter Dog Month seeks to call attention to the plight of these animals and to encourage people to adopt dogs rather than going to a breeder.
The vision of the ASPCA is "a humane community in which all animals are treated with respect and kindness." Donations to the ASPCA support a variety of causes, including:
  • Grants to shelters nationwide
  • Spay/neuter and microchipping programs
  • Adoption, fostering and relocation programs
  • Investigation and seizure of abused animals
  • Lobbying for anti-cruelty legislation
See Spot Run has a sapphire blue jelly base with a mix of circle and hex glitters in pink, purple, red, blue and silver with silver holographic microglitter and aqua sparks. This was a little bit sheer due to the jelly-ness, so I built it up in three coats. I love the complex look of the glitters through the base, it reminds me of a pond with flowers peeking out from the depths!

This polish will only be available in the month of October from ALIQUID Lacquer's website. You can purchase it for $11 and $5 of that will go to the ASPCA! I love dogs, and all of my animals have been rescued from shelters, so this cause is near and dear to my heart. Since I received this polish for review, I have donated the $5 that would've been given to the ASPCA had I purchased this.

This is a lovely polish and it is supporting a fabulous cause, so help them beautiful puppies and kitties today and adopt or donate or purchase this polish! Love ya!

Different Dimension Fall 2015 Falling In Love Collection Swatches & Review

Hey there! Ready for another Fall collection? The one I have to show you today is called Falling In Love from indie brand Different Dimension. These are all super rich shades of the fall season in beautiful linear holographic finishes. Onward!

You Blue It is an intense navy blue linear holographic with added shimmers. The formula was very easy to work with and this was opaque in two coats.
Different Dimension You Blue It

Let Your Gourd Down is giving me life, I can't even tell you. It's a burnt orange linear holographic with added shimmers. When I saw this I automatically thought "pumpkin spice holo"! It was basically opaque in one coat, but the second layer gives it a bit of a deeper color.
Different Dimension Let Your Gourd Down

Love You A Latte is a soft latte brown linear holographic with added shimmers. This was on the thinner side, but not runny which was nice. Two coats for full opacity.
Different Dimension Love You A Latte

Leaf Me Alone is a light spring green linear holographic with added shimmers. This has the same thin formula as Latte, just as easy to work with too. I used two coats here.
Different Dimension Leaf Me Alone

I Lava You is a dark red berry linear holographic. The name makes me think of that Disney Pixar short "Lava" that was shown before the movie Inside Out, awww :) This was a little thicker and had a slightly more jelly-ish texture on the first coat, but the second coat went on super smooth and didn't feel as thick, possibly it liked sticking to itself better than my base coat? Two coats for this one as well.
Different Dimension I Lava You

Buttersweet Symphony is a linear holographic spicy mustard yellow with added shimmers and microglitters. In some lights it leans pretty green, looking more chartreuse. Effortless formula, opaque in two coats! I love the added bling of those glitters.
Different Dimension Buttersweet Symphony

A Raisin For Living is a deep inky indigo purple linear holographic. This one was slighty thicker but still easy to apply. Two coats on this one as well.
Different Dimension A Raisin For Living

You Light Up My Life is the only glitter topper in the collection, it has holographic shreds and microglitters in a holographic base. This is very dense, I used only one coat over Raisin and there was fabulous coverage. I love how it looks and I can't wait to wear this baby over more polishes!
Different Dimension You Light Up My Life

The Falling In Love collection will be released on Friday October 2, at 9pm EST for $12 per bottle at the Different Dimension website. Tell me what you think about these gorgeous holos! Which is your favorite? I have to give it to Let Your Gourd Down and Buttersweet Symphony for their uniqueness, but I really like them all! I will have Different Dimension's Halloween collection to show you soon, so stay tuned!
