Different Dimension The Dream Team Trio Swatches & Review

Hello there! Today I have some new polishes from indie brand Different Dimension to show you, a trio called The Dream Team. These are all the product of maker Missi's love of tri-colored gold, and I'm right there with her! I've been loving metallic colored polishes/glitters this year!

Sunbeam is a gold polish with holographic gold microglitters, sterling silver plated flakies and shimmer. This was super easy to apply, just like a regular polish. Great glitter payoff, I only needed two coats! The glitter feels very flat, not chunky at all, but you may need a second coat of top coat for extra smoothness.

Star Stream has the same formula as Sunbeam, but it's a silver polish. Also two coats. This is crazy blingy and incredibly fresh looking.

Moonbeam also has the same formula as the other two, but in rose gold. I also used two coats here. I'm borderline obsessed with rose gold now and this has a slight tinge of coral, so I'm head over heels with it! This one seems the most three-dimensional because of the breakup of color, very cool.

These three polishes will all be available on the Different Dimension website on Friday 12/4 at 9pm EST. They will be priced at $12 each. Tell me what you think of these metallic marvels! Which is your favorite? I love them all, but Moonbeam has my heart!

My Picks from the ILNP Fall 2015 Collection Swatches & Review

Hey you, how ya doing today? I'm finally feeling better after my latest cold, phew! I've got two polishes from the ILNP (I Love Nail Polish) Fall 2015 collection to show you. I only bought two of the seventeen shades that they came out with for the season, but I really love the ones I got.

Clockwork is a bronze gold in the ILNP "precious metal" formula, metallic flakes with a range of holographic particles in a silky beige base. The flakes in this are smooth and flat and meld together into a super shiny, luxurious metallic finish. Then you add in the holo and this knocks you over with sparkle! This is two coats. I might be obsessed with this. Not difficult to remove like regular glitters, which is very nice.

Spiced Eggnog is a different type of beautiful, an odd fellow in my collection. I had to have this because it's so unique. A beige "eggnog" crelly base with soft holographic shimmer, and burnt orange speckle flakes that become the "spice". This also had a great formula, very easy to apply. Two coats. It's a love it or hate it shade, and I adore it!

I purchased these from the ILNP website for $10 each. Did you pick anything up from this collection? They just released their Holiday collection and it's amazing. I need to go get some more of their metallic flake polishes, it might be the coolest finish out right now!

Potion Polish Holiday 2015 Festive Fancies Collection Swatches & Review

Hi there! I have a new collection from indie brand Potion Polish to share with you today called Festive Fancies. This nine piece Holiday collection features lots of glitter, with a mix of jelly, crelly, holographic, and clear bases.

Let's Get Elf'd Up is a deep burgundy holographic mixed with tiny blue glitter throughout. This is an intensely pigmented shade, a little thin but really opaque. The holo aspect has a nice mix of linear and scattered bits. This is two coats.

Silver Skates is a dense combination of silver flakes, silver and light blue holographic glitter in various sizes and shapes. This is substantial enough to be a stand-alone polish, and though you probably could layer it, it would most likely cover up the underlying polish a lot. It was a little thick, but wasn't difficult to use and it dried quickly. I used two coats but you might need three.

Mistletoe Smooches is a "Christmas Tree" green linear holographic with a bunch of gold holographic glitter added. I am head over heels with this, green and gold is one of my favorite combinations! Great opacity and easy to apply. This is two coats.

Snow Day has a bright white crelly base with blue metallic flakies, blue shimmer and light blue glitters hexes and squares. This had a pretty opaque white for a base, more so than most white crellies I have. It was a little thick but not too difficult to manipulate. This is three coats.

Pretty Pink Tree is a light pink linear holographic with a touch of lavender, with rose gold holo glitter added in various sizes. Another more unique combination, and so beautiful. This was great to apply and very easy, two coats here as well.

Reindeer Tracks is a holiday glitter mix of circles and hexes in red, gold and green glitter in various sizes and a sprinkle of gold and silver dust in a clear base. I put one coat over OPI Christmas Gone Plaid. This was easy to get a lot of glitter on the nail without trying and was nice to apply without having to manipulate the pieces. I like the addition of gold in this festive glitter topper!

No Peeking! is a deep eggplant purple crelly with a splash of scattered holographic glitter and a pinch of blue iridescent glitter. I found this one on the thicker side and a little difficult to spread. This is two thick coats. If you can manage thinner coats, you may need three.

Treetop Angel is a pale gold holographic with gold metallic flakies. This went on really easily and dried super fast. I only needed two coats for this. This is a unique combination that I haven't seen before. I love gold!

On the Nice List is a lustrous sapphire blue with a strong gold shimmer and gold holographic glitters in varying sizes. This applied well, but was a teensy bit brushstrokey. I feel like the glitters get out shown by the in-your-face shimmer, but I liked the night sky effect it has. Two coats here.

This collection will be available for purchase on Friday, December 4th at 3pm EST on the Potion Polish website. They will range in price from $8.50 to $9.00 each, with the complete collection selling for $70.00. I'm glad to have found Potion Polish, they are a great indie brand! I really like the set as a whole, it feels very cohesive while providing some uniqueness for the holiday season. My picks are Mistletoe Smooches, Pretty Pink Tree, and Reindeer Tracks. Tell me which ones you would pick!
