Pahlish The Life Aquatic Collection: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hello! I have some new polishes from Pahlish today. These six are part of the upcoming The Life Aquatic Collection, inspired by The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions featuring Seu Jorge. This album is a collection of David Bowie covers that Jorge recorded in Portuguese for The Life Aquatic soundtrack. It's actually one of my own favorite film soundtracks and if you have seen the Life Aquatic, you will see how this colorful polish set fits the color scheme of the film. 

The collection itself consists of six polishes, all in a foil flake finish. Formula wise, they go on very smoothly, with nice consistency that is not too thick or thin and each one was opaque enough with two coats. They all are gorgeous colors and my personal favorites are Life on Mars and Team Zissou. Pricing wise, they will retail for $11 each and you can purchase them in Pahlish's shop on Sunday January 22nd at 7 pm CST

Road to Polish Con - Different Dimension Heaven From Hell & Great Lakes Lacquer Blue Skies From Pain: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hi all! I have two polishes today from Different Dimension and Great Lakes Lacquer. They both created polishes for the "Road to Polish Con" series and both drew inspiration from the album “Wish You Were Here” from Pink Floyd. Each is quite different in coloring but look amazing in their own way. 

Both polishes are being made available for one week, from Sunday January 15th until Saturday January 21st. There are 50 polishes each available to start with and then this will become a pre-order. As for where to order, head on over to the Polish Con shop

Different Dimension Heaven From Hell
Two coats
Baby blue holographic with iridescent red-green color-shifting glitter and red shimmer
A unique color combination. I love the glint of iridescence you get from that color-shifting glitter. A little thick in formula but not problematic, just apply thinner style coats.




Great Lakes Lacquer Blue Skies From Pain
Two coats
Dark slate blue linear holographic with multi-chrome shifts of purple, blue, red, and gold
Goodness, this is so deeply blue and I love the flashes of the other colors. My first photo leans slightly more purple than you will see in person. It's very opaque, so two coats worked again here.

The Holo Hookup February 2017 Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hey all! I have the Holo Hookup Box for February today Along with polishes from Cupcake Polish, Different Dimension, and Glisten & Glow, the guest maker for this month is Powder Perfect. The theme is 'Kiss And Make Up' with the inspiration pic below:


The February 2017 Holo Hookup Box will be available during a week long pre-order window from January 21st at 9 pm EST until January 28th at 9 pm EST only in the Holo Hookup shop

The box is $40 plus shipping which will be available domestically and internationally.

(Side note: I am trying out a new nail shape. The longer my nails are, the easier they break in the corners as squares. I am not sure if I will maintain the shape forever but for now, this is how they look! Hope you guys like them too.)

Cupcake Polish Highlight It Up
Two coats
Very pale pink metallic linear holographic with heavy pink shimmer
I love how delicate and ethereal this looks. It's on the sheer side but even so, I have it shown here with just two coats.

Different Dimension When In Doubt, Wing it Out
Two coats
Black linear holographic with black holo micro-glitter
Deeply black and totally opaque, just like your favorite liquid eye liner. Applies wonderfully in two coats.

Glisten & Glow I Came, I Saw, I Contoured
Two coats
Medium brown linear holographic with golden and peach shimmer plus red holo glitter 
I like the creaminess of this brown, and the red sparks you see, though those are subtle. 




(Under LED Light)


 Powder Perfect Berry Lips & Curvy Hips 
Two coats
Dark mulberry holographic with a purple linear holographic flame
The perfect shade of berry red, which would flatter most everyone, lips or nails. Goes on smoothly and is just opaque enough in two coats, some may find that they need a third, depending on how thin/thickly you apply.

Different Dimension My Forever Fairytale Collection: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hi everyone! I hope the new year has been well to you so far. For this first post of 2017, I have a new collection from Different Dimension to share. The My Forever Fairytale Collection is a six polish set that is full of sparkling and lighter toned colors, which is definitely fits the name and theme. 

My Forever Fairytale Collection will be available today, Friday January 13th at 9 pm EST in Different Dimension's shop

You can purchase polishes for $12 individually but if you purchase the full set, it will be discounted for the first 24 hours of sale for $65 AND a bonus gift-with-purchase polish will be added to each order of the entire collection that will not be available to purchase elsewhere. 

Different Dimension Always Wish Upon a Star
Three coats
Pink holographic glitter and iridescent red to green color-shifting glitter in a clear base
I looooove those color-shifting glitter along with the pale pink holo glitter. It is a full coverage glitter polish but I needed three coats for total coverage, rather than just two coats. 




Different Dimension Dream Impossible Dream
Three coats
Lavender holographic glitter and iridescent red to green color-shifting glitter in a clear base
Same as the previous polish but with light lavender purple instead of pink. I kept going back and forth as to which version I liked more but I couldn't decide. Formula is also the same, three coats for total coverage. 




Different Dimension Never Too Old For Fairytales
Three coats
Lavender purple linear holographic with holographic micro-flakes and gold flash
For those who may not be into the glitter but like the lighter purple coloring, then this will be perfect for you. It has a metallic look to it with the holo micro-flakes. Easy application though I did find again that it wasn't completely opaque in two coats and needed a third. 




Different Dimension Once Upon a Time
Three coats
Rose pink linear holographic with holographic micro-flakes and gold flash
Here is the rosy pink version and with the gold flash, you have a pretty rose gold polish, for those who desire all things rose gold. 




Different Dimension Slay Your Own Dragons
Three coats
Turquoise holographic glitter and iridescent red to green color-shifting glitter in a clear base
This is the third and final full coverage glitter in the set, in a dreamy turquoise green color. Same application notes. 




Different Dimension The Best Is Yet to Come
Three coats
Blue linear holographic with holographic micro-flakes and gold flash
Rounding out the set with this last blue number. The gold flash is the most prominent in this blue, it almost looks green in the photos, but however it appears as, it looks amazing.
