Different Dimension: Set It Free Collection

Good afternoon everyone!  I hope to have another post up this evening, but while I’m waiting on the sun to come back out- I thought I’d post some pictures I recently took of one of my very favorite collections!

Different Dimension’s Set It Free collection was first released last February- though it is still available!  This stunning collection is made of 3 polishes- Black Dahlia, Wide Awake, and Stronger.    I love everything about this trio of polishes- they’re holo, sparkling, shimmering bottles of beauty!

First up is Black Dahlia.

Different Dimension Black Dahlia

This is probably my favorite of the collection.  While I feel like you should get all 3, if you can only get 1- make it be this one.  Black Dahlia is a beautiful black flake polish (the flakes in all 3 build up to opacity in just 2 coats), filled with tons of holographic pigment, blue/pink shimmer, and color shifting glitters.

This polish comes alive outside, but it is just as beautiful indoors too.  I used 2 coats with no topcoat for these photos.  As with every Different Dimension polish I’ve tried, the formula was perfect and went on wonderfully with no issues.

Next in the trio is Wide Awake.

Different Dimension Wide Awake

Although this is a pink, this is probably my least favorite of the bunch.  Shocking, right?  Wide Awake is absolutely beautiful, but didn’t want to play nice with my skin tone.  That’s the only negative thing about it though- because it’s just as stunning as it’s siblings, and applies like a dream.

Different Dimension Wide Awake

Wide Awake is a very pale pink holographic polish filled with light pink flecks and a hot pink flash (seen best in the photo below).  As I said before- application was wonderful.  Photos show 2 coats with no topcoat.

Last but not least, is Stronger.

Different Dimension Stronger

This one ALMOST tied with Black Dahlia for the favorite spot- I think Black Dahlia edged it out because of it’s extra color shifting glitters 😉

Different Dimension Stronger

Stronger is a *stunning* light blue holographic polish filled with blue flecks and a blue/pink flash.  Like Black Dahlia, the strong holographic pigment plays very nicely with this shade, and it’s almost always visible- even indoors a bit.  The pop of pink is not subtle, and is so beautiful!

Different Dimension Stronger

Like the others, application on Stronger was amazing.  Every polish I own by Different Dimension is like this, so I’m not surprised!  Photos show 2 coats with no topcoat.

Though Missi has been pumping out some AMAZING holographic colors lately- I highly recommend you pick up at least 1 of these beauties!  You won’t regret it!

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.

Jindie Nails Olive You Swatches

Today I’m going to show off one of my more recent purchases- Jindie Nails Olive You.

Olive You is an olive green linear holographic polish filled with small green/gold color shifting glitters.

Pictures show 2 coats with no topcoat.  Because of the glitters, Olive You shimmered and sparkled inside in the shade, and burst to life outside in the sun.  Application was great, everything went on smooth and well.

Isn’t it gorgeous?  This will be a great shade for fall!

LynBDesigns: Jarvis and Five Orange Pips

I have 2 beautiful colors from LynBDesigns to show off today- Jarvis and Five Orange Pips!

Pretty neat bottles, right?

LynBDesigns has a TON of colors to choose from on her etsy site– there’s 95 polish listings!  She also has a lot of other fun things to check out.

So first up: Jarvis!

Jarvis is part of LynBDesigns’ Gender-Benders collection- 14 colors that all share men’s names.  From etsy:  ‘It’s hot pink, it’s color shifting; what’s not to love? Jarvis has a sheer hot pink base and is loaded with color shifting awesomeness. It changes from pink to blue to purple, and on occasion even a little orange.’

You all know I love pink, especially the bright variety- so I was sold!

This is 4 coats of Jarvis alone.  3 would have been sufficient, but without a base coat I had a tiny bit of VNL.

This color is SO gorgeous!  There’s a beautiful light color shift and the application is great.  Even with 4 coats, the polish wasn’t too thick and was very wearable.

This is 2 coats of Jarvis over Cult Nails Nevermore (my go-to black).  WOW!  Look at how pretty!  I love a color-shifting topcoat that can be worn on its own- it makes it very versatile!

The second polish I have to show off from LynBDesigns is Five Orange Pips!

Five Orange Pips is from the Baker Street Collection, which is inspired by Sherlock Holmes.  The description from the store sums up this color perfectly: ‘It’s a collection of orange glitters in a sheer orange base. It has orange holographic glitter, orange hearts, fine orange matte, and glitter that look black in some light, orange in others.’

Even though it’s not part of LynBDesigns’ Halloween collection, this color is absolutely perfect for a holiday look.

This is 2 coats of Five Orange Pips over Sally Hansen’s Ivory Skull (one of the new Fall Complete Manicure colors; a plain white).

This was an easy color to work with- the only hard part was (as expected) the cute orange hearts- but they didn’t require too much effort to get them to come out and play!  The white in these photos really shows off the orange jelly of Five Orange Pips.

This is my favorite combo- 2 coats of Five Orange Pips over Cult Nails Nevermore.  Does this scream Halloween or what?!

I really, really loved these 2 polishes.  Both were super easy to work with and covered nicely- and most importantly, they both looked so very beautiful!  I play on getting a lot of use out of Five Orange Pips this fall!

LynBDesigns is currently offering a Buy Two, Get One Free sale (as of 9/19)!  Just write a note requesting which color you would like as your free choice.

These polishes and more can be found on LynBDesign’s Etsy store for $8.50 each and unless my eyes deceive me- shipping is free!  Which makes these a great deal for some beautiful indie polishes 🙂

Be sure to check out LynBDesign’s Facebook page for new colors and updates.  She has a pretty Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired Halloween collection just released!
