Good morning and happy Monday lovelies! I disappeared again for a few days, and I’m sure you are all sick of hearing about it. But yeah. We’re in the middle of our busiest time at work and I thought I had enough blogging stuff prepared ahead of time, but apparently not haha. Last year I took a break during this time, but I think I have myself in a good place so things should stay steady over here. But, enough of that. It’s time for my Indie Showoff feature to come back today with a new brand! The last post in this series wrapped up my Love, Angeline collection, so next up is Different Dimension (thank you to everyone who voted on my Instagram.) Let’s get to it!

Name: Wish You Were Here

Description: Glitter topper filled with large holo circles, smaller circles, squares in fuchsia, blues and holo.

Release Information: Limited edition polish for the 2016 Polish Con VIP bags.

Number of Coats: One coat over Zoya’s Pinta..

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: This felt a little base heavy, but it wasn’t difficult to get a good amount of glitter payoff per nail. I did have to fish for the larger circle glitters though.

Dry Time: About fifteen minutes.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: This is a fun glitter! I’ll admit that I’ve kind of outgrown my big glitter topper phase, so I can’t really see myself reaching for this that often. But, if I ever wanted to wear something bold and punchy this would definitely work. Plus, the formula is lovely for a topper like this!

Name: …Dream Within A Dream

Release Information: Halloween 2016 Poe Collection.

Number of Coats: Three coats.

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: Glitter heavy, but in a good way. Each layer applied evenly and it built up to full opacity easily.

Dry Time: About ten to fifteen minutes for each layer.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: Guys. There is something seriously magical about Different Dimension holo glitters. I don’t know what it is, but they just seem so much more sparkly to me than other polishes. So, considering the fact that I love sparkles, I am really smitten with this! It’s absolutely perfect for Halloween, but you could easily get away with wearing this year round.

Now, it’s time for some nail art!

What is it about squiggles and glitter? The two things don’t seem like they would work together, and yet I manage to recreate almost the same manicure every time I use a glitter topper haha. Let me know what you guys would do for nail art over glitter, because apparently I need some new ideas 😛

  1. Start by applying two coats of Pinta.
  2. Then add a layer of Wish You Were Here over top.
  3. Apply a layer of Glossy Glam to smooth the surface.
  4. Use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the squiggles.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with another coat of Glossy Glam.

Painting nail art over glitter polish is something I love to do, but man. I had such a hard time coming up with something to paint over this one! There is just so much going on with all the different glitters, so I decided to keep it simple with some polka dots. They ended up looking a bit like eyeballs, but I’m digging it haha.

  1. Start by applying three coats of …Dream Within A Dream.
  2. Apply a layer of Glossy Glam to help smooth the surface.
  3. Add the large white dots on with acrylic paint and a dotting tool.
  4. Once those are dry, use the smaller end of the dotting tool and black acrylic paint to add on top of those.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with another coat of Glossy Glam.

Here are some bottle macros:

I always feel like a jerk when I do these posts and some of the polishes aren’t available. But, part of the reason that I do this series is so I have a visual catalog of my indie polishes (including the ones that aren’t available anymore.) With that being said, Wish You Were Here is not for sale since it was limited edition for last year’s Polish Con. But! …Dream Within A Dream is available in the Different Dimension shop (it retails at $10 for a 15mL bottle.) Make sure to check out the following links for more information about this brand:
