Different Dimension Polishes Part II

Happy Sunday, dear readers!  On my last post, I mentioned that I have several more Different Dimension polishes to swatch, and today I am showing you the rest of them. Let's do this!

Blame it on the Pain (sun and indoors)

This is a gorgeous navy blue polish with small blue glitter flakes mixed in.  If I look at the bottle just long enough and at just the right angle, it looks duochromy- the blue flakes are purple!  I really wish I could see the flashes on purple on my nails, but I'm not sure that I really am.  Every once in a while I catch a hint of purple sparkle, but I'm not convinced it isn't my mind making my see something that I want to see.  Regardless of this fact, this is a lovely darker polish that I'm sure many of you will absolutely love.  I used 2 coats, and both dried reasonably quickly for me.

Bazinga (sun and indoors)

Bazinga is a yellow jelly polish with red and yellow hex glitters of various sizes.  Not overly complex, this polish is  cute.  I wanted to do something interesting with it, so I just decided to layer it over Over Blame It On The Pain- primary colour action, yo!  It spread pretty evenly without too much work needed to break up the glitters, and I used one coat plus where dabbed a little in very open areas.

Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty (sun and indoors)
Ohh!  This is a beautiful creamy grey jelly packed with various sized white, silver, and holo hex glitters.  This colour is gorgeous, and I'm sad to say that I just cannot pull it off quite as well as some other bloggers.  :(  I didn't want to have to put on several coats to get rid of visible nail line, so I started with a coat of Julep Meryl, a grey creme that is maybe two shades darker than Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty (and sadly one of the only greys I have in my collection).  I then added three coats of Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, bringing it almost completely back to its original colour.  I didn't have to dig for any glitters, and the glitters were all pretty easy to break up and lay on the nails.  Even though it doesn't look quite right on me, I certainly enjoy staring at the pretty bottle!  :D

Spencer (sun and indoors)
Oh dear readers, have I been in the holiday spirit already, and it's not even Thanksgiving yet!  I'm usually someone that wants nothing to do with Christmas/Hanukah/Yule/WHATEVER holiday until Decmber 1st roles around- I like to give each holiday it's month, but something has come over me this year.  When I first saw Spencer, I KNEW I had to put it over a green and turn it into a holiday mani!  I used 2 coats of Zoya Veruschka as a base, and I then added one coat of Spencer.  On my ring finger, I opted to use 2 coats of Spencer.  As you can see, one coat adds a fantastic pop of colour, but 2 coats yields almost complete nail coverage.  There is still a hint of green peaking through, but a third coat should cover it up nicely.  Spencer is a fun colour, and it is definitely much more complex than you might guess at first glance.  I've been staring at the bottle and my nails, and I absolutely love the amount of detail that went into this creation.  All of the glitters are small- reds, blacks, silver holo.  The base on this beauty is tinted red, so keep that in mind if you want to be layering it over another colour.

Blue Christmas (sun, partial sun, and shade)

Woot!  A holiday polish!  Blue Christmas is made up of a clear base with white, holo silver, and blue hexes and pale blue kites tossed in for good measure.  I used one coat of this beauty over 2 coats Zoya Tao.  I really dig it over the moody grey (and I figured you could see the colours of this stunning top coat well), and it would look gorgeous over a light blue or white.  The glitters spread out easily for me, and I will definitely be pulling this out again soon!

Final Thoughts
I'm not sure what else I can say about these polishes other than "Wow!"  Missi has definitely put a lot of thought into creating these beauties, and this set was just as gorgeous as the set I reviewed previously.  Even those that seem simple still feel well-rounded and compete.   She has also created gorgeous holiday polishes, called the Santa Baby collection, that I encourage you all to check out.  They are also amazing, and you won't be disappointed!
