Different Dimension swatches!

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Thursday! It's almost the weekend, whooo! Any special plans? :)

Today I've got swatches of four Different Dimension polishes to share with you. Different Dimension is an etsy shop run by a lady named Missi. She's super sweet and creates really interesting polishes! Missi is a licenced nail tech and says she just got tired of how all nail polishes look the same sometimes. I'm sure we all know that feel, right? I felt like that looking at the line up of core OPI shades actually... I love OPI but I wish their core line up contained more interesting polishes sometimes!

Anyway, I was super excited when Missi contacted me because MEAN GIRLS POLISH. Seriously. You guys might not know this about me, but I'm a huge Mean Girls fan. I know. I don't know how anyone would have guessed this. It's not like I quote it all the time or helped found Pink Wednesdays for the nail blog world or anything else like that. It's kind of a secret love, really. ;) Wow could I possibly be more sarcastic right now?

So, let's get started! First up is On Wednesdays We Wear Pink. It's got a milky pink base with pink holographic glitter and different shades of pink hexes. I had to get this because Mean Girls. I don't need any other reason. I ended up being super impressed with it though - a lot of indies are in clear bases and usually can't be layered to opacity. On Wednesdays We Wear Pink is super opaque. Much more opaque than I was expecting it to be. I put down a quick coat of China Glaze Dance Baby before I swatched this one and the first coat covered Dance Baby completely, the second leveled everything out. I will say that this polish dries really gritty though. A coat of Gelous and a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward and it was good to go, though!




This is Social Suicide. Yeaaaah buddy. I love black and white glitters. This one has smaller white glitter mixed with black and white hexes. I layered two coats of Social Suicide over two coats of China Glaze Concrete Jungle. This also looks awesome mattified... here's an instagram picture of when I wore it the first time, over Essence Grey-t to be Here. Obviously I'm obsessed with keeping black and white glitters monochromatic when I choose my base lol.



Next up is Bazinga!. I know this is a quote from the Big Bang Theory, I just really liked the combination of colours :) At first it made me think of Fawkes, Dumbledore's phoenix (Harry Potter nerd for liiiiiife for real haha) but then I decided to layer it over Nails Inc Hampstead Gardens, which resulted in the most fall-looking combination ever, in my opinion. Swatching this made me want a pumpkin spice latte and a cozy sweater ASAP! This is one coat of Bazinga! over one coat of Hampstead Gardens. The glitter payoff in Bazinga! is good. I did have to fish a bit for hexes at times because they kept going to the edge of my nubbins (hence not having like any on my pinky hehe) but I don't really like to place glitter when I'm applying it anyway. :)



And last is Puzzle Pieces. Missi has two polishes in her shop for a great cause. Half of the proceeds of every sale of Puzzle Pieces and Light it Up Blue go to Autism Speaks, an research and advocacy foundation dedicated to funding research into the prevention, causes and treatments of autism, finding a cure for autism, increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders and advocating for the needs of people with autism and their families. Both polishes are gorgeous (I'll be making an order tonight with my mom and Light it Up Blue will definitely be coming to live with me - great cause and a great polish - it glows blue!) and they're for a great cause - it's a win-win situation, I think. :)

Puzzle Pieces is such an interesting polish... I don't have anything like it. It's got rainbow coloured shreds and hexes and these really interesting iridescent flakes. I wore this manicure for days (which is why there's sunlight pictures - I got lucky!), I was obsessed with the combination. I'm sorry to show another layering over a grey-ish polish but it's my most recent polish obsession (grey nails are just so classy!) and I thought it showed the colours really well. So this is two coats of Puzzle Pieces over two coats of Zoya Kelly.




So, what do you guys think? I can't wait to place an order for more with my momma, Missi posted a bunch of new polishes (including a Pretty Little Liars inspired mini collection and a beautiful fall collection!) so I'm sure I'll be going a bit crazy hehe!

If you want to place an order too, Missi was sweet enough to give me a coupon code to share with you guys! It will give you 20% off of your entire order and it's good until 11th October (two weeks from today). The code is glittagloves20 and the link to Missi's etsy shop is right here. Happy shopping!

What do you lovelies think? Will you be scooping any of these up?

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!
