Different Dimension - Happy Holly Days Collection

Press Sample


         If you "like" me on Facebook, you might have seen my post about big things coming up. This is one of them! I have the entire Different Dimension Happy Holly Days collection to share with you today! These are currently unavailable, but check the end of the post for all the stock information! This collection contains eleven perfect polishes: five glitter toppers, one glitter crelly, one glitter jelly, one shimmer matte, one holo top coat, and two holos. With a lineup like this, there's something for everyone. I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of the holiday season, but nail polish makes everything better! You don't want to miss out on this collection.

Mistle-Toad
pine green
linear holographic finish
heavy pink shimmer/flash

three coats 
one coat Seche Vite












Mistle-Toad

    Three easy coats that built up beautifully and dried quickly. I used one coat of Seche Vite and the holoness of this polish wasn't compromised at all. My favorite part of this polish is the intense pink flash. It really brings something new to the table.











Mistle-Toad

    How gorgeous is that macro shot? The holo is very apparent in artificial light. Imagine it in sunlight! The pink shimmer really sets this off. A must have for any fans of green! 













Can We Carol On

creamy light dusty lavender
linear holographic finish
blue shimmer

three coats
one coat Seche Vite











Can We Carol On

    This application was just as great as Mistle-Toad. I had no issues at all. Three coats built it up to the perfect finish. 

    This polish has a really nice icey look to it. The blue shimmer makes it different from my other polishes in this shade.











Can We Carol On

     The blue shimmer is really prominent in this shot. Again, imagine this in full sunlight! Another perfect holo from Missi of Different Dimension.












Load of Baubles

baby pink creme
heavy blue shimmer
matte finish

three coats
no top coat














Load of Baubles

     At first, I thought this was going to be a pain to apply. I was so wrong. Three easy coats that dried super super fast. This dries to a really pretty matte finish. 













Load of Baubles

    SO. MUCH. SHIMMER. This has such a feminine look to it. It's soft and understated without being boring.














Load of Baubles

three coats
one coat Seche Vite

    The top coat glosses this over and makes it shimmer even more. I think this would make a great base for nail art or french tips.











This Is Not Fir

grass green jelly
silver and green circles
silver and green hexes
silver and green squares

three coats alone
one coat Seche Vite











This is Not Fir

     I used three coats for this look. The formula was great, but it's really sheer. If you don't have a lot of free edge, you would be fine with it on its own. If you prefer a more opaque look, I'd suggest layering this over a green base. One coat of Seche Vite was just right.












This is Not Fir

     I love glitters floating around in a jelly base. The visible nail line isn't as prominent in real life. Like I said above, a solid green base would work well under this. 












I Only Have Ice For You

holographic top coat
sterling silver micro flakies

one coat over a black creme
four coats alone as an accent
one coat Seche Vite












I Only Have Ice For You

     One coat of this polish will transform any polish. I chose a black creme to try it out first. The coverage is fabulous. There were no issues with the formula or dry time. Seche Vite didn't dull the effect at all. That's always a plus!











I Only Have Ice For You

     Are you drooling yet? Such a strong holographic effect AND mirror like silver flakes. I've never seen a polish like this. I have over 1,000 in my collection and nothing comes close to this. I can't wait to wear it over, uh, EVERYTHING. 












I Only Have Ice For You

     Four coats alone! This polish is thin enough to build up and wear alone. I love this look so, so much. This is a must have for any holo lover!












Tinselitis

clear base
various silver circles
various silver hexes
strong silver hexes

one coat over Illamasqua Superstition
one coat Seche Vite










Tinselitis

     One coat was more than enough for this amazing amount of glitter payoff . Application was a breeze. I used one coat of Seche Vite, but I think another coat or a coat of Gelous before top coat would have been a better idea. 

    Tinselitis is the perfect name for this. It's super sparkly and twinkles in the light.











Tinselitis

     The macro shot of this doesn't so this justice. The glimmer in this was freaking out my camera. 












You're Not Making Any Frankincense

clear base
gold and silver circles
gold and silver hexes
gold and silver squares

one coat over Zoya Rehka
one coat Seche Vite












You're Not Making Any Frankincense

     Amazing glitter payoff with a great formula.This was so easy to apply and didn't take any extra effort at all. The dry time was average and one coat of Seche Vite was just enough.












You're Not Making Any Frankincense

     I love this mix of silver and gold. Plus, the holographic sparkle in the glitter makes this perfect for the holidays. 












That's Snow Joke

clear base
blue, white, and silver glitter shapes:
circles, hexes, squares, and diamonds
silvery blue shimmer

one coat over Essie Where's My Chauffeur











That's Snow Joke

     A beautiful polish with a beautiful formula. This was a breeze to apply. Zero issues with application or dry time. One coat of Seche Vite was sufficient. 

     I wish I would have tried a matte top coat over this. I can only imagine it would get better.









That's Snow Joke


     This is my favorite polish in the collection. I can't believe that I was so against blue polish for the longest time. What was wrong with me? This is only version of snow I'm looking forward to! 











Don't Be The Santa Of Everything

clear base
red and green circles
red and green squares
red and green tiny hexes

two coats over Illamasqua Kink
one coat Seche Vite












Don't Be The Santa Of Everything

     I used two coats, but one coat would have been pretty, too. I wanted more of those big circles and the extra coat did just that. An average dry time was sped up a bit with one coat of Seche Vite.












Don't Be The Santa Of Everything

     If you love circle glitter and are looking for Christmas in a bottle, this one is for you! It's the perfect mix of red and green glitters. This is in my top picks for the collection.











Why Am I Such A Misfit?

white crelly base
neon pink and green stars
neon pink squares
pastel circles
holo sparkles
(and even more I couldn't pick out!)

two coats over a white creme
one coat Seche Vite









Why Am I Such A Misfit?

     This was another surprising formula. for me. I was expecting to have to fish for the large circles and stars, but didn't! This is pretty sheer so I layered it over a white base. The dry time was average. I used one coat of Seche Vite, but I think a coat of Gelous and then Seche Vite would have been better for the edges of the stars. 











Why Am I Such A Misfit?

     Isn't this cute? It's the most un-Christmassy Christmas polish I've ever seen. I love the mint and lilac circles with the holo sparkles. It's adorable and squishy!













Christmahanakwansika

clear base
red, blue, green, and yellow hex mix

one coat over OPI Eurso Euro
one coat Seche Vite













Christmahanakwansika

      At this point, do I really need to tell you how great the formula is? This was a flawless application with a great glitter pay off. No issues here! I used one coat of Seche Vite for this swatch.












Christmahanakwansika

     Maybe this base wasn't the best because the blue glitters blend in, but I still like it. Over a white base, this would look like twinkling lights. It combines the three most popular winter holidays: Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. This polish would work for anyone! 







     WHEW! That was such a long post, but totally worth it. I wasn't lying when I said there was something for everyone. Which ones are you fiending for? Any must haves? Which one is your favorite?
