Oh hello! Again. Did you miss me? It’s been so long since I’ve shared an Indie Showoff post, so that’s what I have to share with you all now! The Different Dimension portion of this series has been in a limbo for a while, but this will be the final post of this brand (for now…) So, make sure to grab yourself a coffee or tea and get ready for some Silence Of The Lambs realness!

My thoughts: Chunky glitter toppers like this were originally what got me into the indie polish scene, and into the Different Dimension brand. Now a days though, I’m not into them as much so I’m not too crazy about this. But, I remember being SO excited about owning this back when I bought it haha! The formula has become a bit of a pain, but I am liking the added holo sparkles in there!

My thoughts: Everything I said above about glitter toppers applies to this polish too. But, I do like the color combinations happening in this polish better! It looks like some of the glitters have started to bleed and cause the base to be green tinged, but that’s not a huge deal to me. I’ll be keeping this one in mind for this upcoming Halloween!

My thoughts: If you had asked me four years ago which of these three polishes was my favorite, this polish would not have been my answer. But, dang! This is gorgeous! I love microglitter polishes, and I can not wait to start to using this one again this Fall.

That’s a wrap on swatches, so let’s get to the nail art!

Coming up with nail art to compliment glitter toppers is difficult, but this set of Zentangle examples (by Carlion) was super helpful! This pattern gets a little lost against the glitter, but it also helps fill in some of the gaps.

  1. Start by applying three coats of Darcy.
  2. Then add on a layer of Have The Lambs Stopped Screaming?
  3. Once that’s dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the squiggles.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

One of my go-tos when doing nail art over glitter, is to add circles over top! So, that’s what I did with IAHLWSFBAANC (hashtag what…) This time around I switched it up a bit, and filled in some of the bubbles!

When it came to It Rubs The Lotion On Its Skin, I knew that I wanted to do something kind of creepy to match the polish. Luckily, I came across this pattern by Lynnie Zulu because it worked perfectly!it rubs the lotion on its skin, pattern, nail art, different dimension, polish those nails, indie polish, nails, nail polish, glitter

Unfortunately, none of these polishes are currently available for purchase. I feel like Different Dimension always does fun stuff for Halloween though, so make sure to keep an eye on her shop to see what she does this time around! These links should help:
