Different Dimension Thermal Collection Review

*Press Sample*

Today I have another review for you all- and be warned, this is going to be picture heavy!

What you’re about to see is the entire set of the absolutely beautiful new thermal polishes from Different Dimension!  Missi, the awesome genius behind Different Dimension, hopes to be releasing these sometime next week- though there isn’t a specific date right now. Each polish name is inspired by one of the Mr. Men and Little Miss characters!

Every polish performed and applied the same, so I’ll review them all here before jumping into photos. All 5 are beautiful, shimmery, glass fleck filled beauties.  Each shifts between 2 colors depending on temperature- hot vs. cold.  Like with most thermals, if you have longer nails you’ll be able to achieve a small bit of a gradient with any free edge.  Application was beautiful- each went on well with great coverage.  They appear very sheer with the first coat, but build up well- all photos show 3 coats with no topcoat.  Now on to photo spam!

StubbornCollageLittle Miss Stubborn is a gorgeous purple thermal polish.  At room temperature, it’s a pretty purple polish with a gold duochrome shift.

After putting my hand in cold water, the color was a bit darker though still similar to the room temperature shade:

And after putting my hands in hot water, Little Miss Stubborn turns to a very light shade of pink-purple:

As the polish slowly cooled back down, of course my tips were the first to go.  Eventually the whole nail returned to the room temperature shade.

Next up is…

SillyCollage

Of all of the polishes in this collection, I really feel like this one is the *most* perfectly named.  Look at Mr. Silly’s hat and body next to each other compared to the swatch photo!  It’s a match made in heaven!

Mr. Silly is a beautiful shimmery light orange glass fleck with a gorgeous yellow green shimmer.  At room temperature:

When warm, Mr. Silly turns into a light pastel yellow with a green-gold flash:

3cAs the nail slowly started cooling down again, it made for some stunning transitions!  The 2 yellow/orange polishes are my favorite of the bunch for this effect- it looks like a sunrise!

The third polish of the bunch is…

GrumbleCollage

Mr. Grumble is another beautiful duochrome purple shade.  At room temperature, the glass flecks in this one shift between blue, purple and a green-gold with a bit of a pink flash!

2a

2bAnd then warmed up, it turns to a light green with a pink flash!

2d

2c

And then my nails transitioning back to room temperature- this was a much more ‘obvious’ transition than the previous ones!

The 4th polish in the group is…

NoisyCollageYour eyes aren’t deceiving you- Mr. Noisy is very very similar to Mr. Silly!  The major difference is that Mr. Noisy is a much darker shade of orange at room temperature.  This one is my very favorite for the transitioned look- it’s just SO pretty!

At room temperature Mr. Noisy is a beautiful glass fleck coral red-orange with a yellow flash:

5a

5b

Then in warm water, it turns to a beautiful shimmery pastel yellow:

5d

5cMy nails transitioning back to room temperature- LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!

And one more, because something this pretty deserves photo spam:

5f

And last but not least, the final polish in this collection is…

NaughtyCollageLittle Miss Naughty is probably my favorite ‘room temperture’ polish of the collection- and it doesn’t hurt that it shifts to pink!

At room temperature, Little Miss Naughty is an incredibly beautiful purple with a green-gold glass fleck shimmer.

4bAnd here it is cold (it did appear darker cold- some didn’t have a drastic difference cold vs. room temperature):

4a

This one actually reminds me a little bit of a glass-fleck version of Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie- one of my very favorite polishes.  So it’s no wonder I adore it!

When warm, Little Miss Naughty turns into a light pink with a golden shimmer!

4c

4dAnd here’s the transition!

4e

4fIsn’t it stunning?

As I said earlier, I had absolutely no issues with these polishes.  All applied like a dream, and it was easy to produce the color changing effect.  And they’re all SO beautiful!  I would buy all 5 in a heartbeat even without the color changing effect- I view that as an added bonus!

These colors should be available sometime next week!  Different Dimension polishes are available at Different Dimension’s Etsy shop and range from $8.50 to $10.00, as well as Llarowe and Mei Mei’s Signatures (for international ladies!).

Be sure to follow Different Dimension on Facebook for updates and sneak peeks at upcoming shades!
