Different Dimension I See the Light Trio, The Best Mum Trio plus April 2017 Special Releases: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hey all! I have a bunch of pretty new things from Different Dimension to share today. These eight polishes are broken down into three sets and they all will be released Saturday April 1st in Different Dimension's shop

I See the Light Trio:
These three polishes consist of special illuminating shimmer for a "glowing" effect with lots of silver holo micro-flakes and pigment. The flash of color from the shimmer is different for each one and while appears more subtle in my photos, will be a bit more prominent in person. Application wise, they go on well, though they required three coats for me for total opaque coverage. Because of the added holo micro-flakes, they have scattered holo appearance rather than linear holo flame. Retail price for this trio will be $12 each. Of the three, my favorite is Ethereal, I can't resist anything with copper shimmer. 

Different Dimension Apparition
Three coats
Silver holographic with holo micro-flakes and color-shifting turquoise shimmer




Different Dimension Ethereal
Three coats
Silver holographic with holo micro-flakes and golden/copper shimmer




Different Dimension Rapturous
Three coats
Silver holographic with holo micro-flakes and color-shifting purple shimmer





The Best Mum Trio:
This trio is inspired by gorgeous springtime blooms and in honor of Mother's Day! Application wise, they are thicker in formula and slightly chalky (probably because of their lighter coloring) so I ended up applying with a bit more care. Though they are moderately opaque with two coats, I had some patchiness with two, three coats worked out better. Because they have a thicker style formula, I waited a few minutes between each coat to prevent dragging of the polish. I love the colors of the polishes, they are light and cheery and reminiscent of the floral that inspired them plus that beautiful shimmer. Of the three You Lilac You Could Use a Break is my favorite. These three retail for $8.75 each. 

Different Dimension Peony For Your Thoughts
Three coats
Peach creme with golden shimmer




Different Dimension That's Ranunculus 
Three coats
Light pink creme with golden shimmer




Different Dimension You Lilac You Could Use a Break
Three coats
Lilac purple creme with golden shimmer




Different Dimension B(earth)day 2017
Two coats
Deep blue linear holographic with silver holo micro-glitter
Maker Missi's birthday is April 22nd, which also happens to be Earth Day! That is the inspiration for this polish, with its bold blue hue. Application was nice and easy with just two coats needed for coverage. This polish will retail for $10 and be available all month long in April, from the 1st to the 30th. 





Different Dimension Every Piece Belongs
Three coats
Baby blue creme with golden shifting shimmer
 It's also glow in the dark! I totally didn't read that note before swatching so I don't have glow in the dark photos for you (whomp whomp), look out for other blogger reviews for those sort of pics. As for application, the formula was somewhat sheerish though I built up opacity in three coats. I like the softness of the baby blue with that shimmer, so so pretty. Missi's youngest son has Autism and because April is Autism Awareness month, Missi will be donating 50% of all profits from this polish to an Autism organization.
This polish will retail for $10 and be available all month long in April, from the 1st to the 30th.

Shleee Polish Swatches and Review

Purchased by Me
Hi everyone! I have some polishes from Shleee Polish to share today. 

For a while now, I have had Shleee Polish on my radar (especially whenever they are on Peachy Polish's blog) but last summer is when I really started buying. I like the variety of color and finishes she offers but her shimmers are what I gravitate toward the most. Much of the time, she releases polishes in small batches so if you see an something you like, grab it while you can, it may not return in its original version, though sometimes a 2.0 or 3.0 may be released. 

As for application, Shleee Polishes, in my experience, have a thinner style formula, with quite a few requiring a minimum of three coats for opacity. I do prefer to have a thicker or more opaque formula when I am wearing polish for myself but otherwise, I have had no issues wearing or swatching these. If anything, I like the "glowy" and/or "ethereal" quality that the application can yield, at least for the paler/lighter colors. 

To find out what's coming during her weekly Friday release, I recommend following her Instagram and/or joining the Flock of Shleeep Facebook group and to buy your own Shleee Polish, check out her shop

The Holo Hookup April 2017 Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hi everyone! For today, I have April's Holo Hookup Box to share. Along with polishes from Cupcake Polish, Different Dimension, and Glisten & Glow, this month's guest maker is Delush Polish. The theme is 'Bucket List' with the inspiration pic below:


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

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

Cupcake Polish Go Parasailing With Me
Two coats
Poppy red linear holographic
Such a bright and saturated shade of red! It leans slightly orange (which is my favorite kind of red) and applies super easily with two coats.

 Different Dimension The Northern Lights Are Out
Two coats
Violet to green multi-chrome linear holo with holo micro-flakes
Going in a completely different direction than the Cupcake Polish, this one is dark beauty is a nice contrast. It's flashes of green are awesome, those flashes are little more visible in person. Nice opaque coverage again with two coats for opacity.

Glisten & Glow A Little More Altitude
Two coats
Light lilac linear holographic with flashes of blue and purple shimmer and silver holo micro-glitter
I like the softness of the lilac color with the added sparkle from the shimmer and glitter bits. This is slightly thicker in formula but otherwise easy to apply. I do recommend a double layer of topcoat due to the micro-glitter.

Delush Polish Keep an Ocean Mind 
Three coats
Turquoise linear holographic with flashes of blue and teal
Beautiful! I love this sort of water reminiscent turquoise shade, especially when it's a holo. It's a little less opaque than the previous three, I needed three coats for coverage.
