Hello old friend, haven't blogged here during this hour but there's always a first for everything, so hello to everyone in Australia and the UK! You're the first to know that this week is a special week. I'll be highlighting Different Dimension, an indie polish for all the sci-fi space cowgirls out there! This morning I received a handful of samples - Orion Nebula, Excelsior!, and Orbital.
These are my very first minis EVER! So obviously, I AWWW'd and coo'd over seeing them fit in the palm of my hand.
Up first on deck is Different Dimension Excelsior!
Taken from Different Dimension's Etsy page:
Excelsior is a white(ish) light grey holographic polish with hints of different colors reflected in the light.
Excelsior translates from Latin:
excelsior (not comparable)
1.(archaic) Loftier, yet higher; ever upward
Of course, all I could think of was Stan Lee yelling Excelsior! when I was fortunate to attend FanExpo here in Vancouver. (Man that guy has so much pizazz to him, I love it!) So every time I grabbed this bottle, I pretty much thought about Stan Lee. Or Bradley Cooper from Silver Linings Playbook.
Just as Different Dimension described, Excelsior! is a cool icy white with holographic properties. Of course in my light box, it unfortunately doesn't show too much, but I tried my best with a different camera to showcase the holo magic. (Because it does exist!) Vancouver hasn't been the sunniest lately so I'm prompted to pull a MacGyver.
Different Dimension Excelsior! formula was very decent and smooth. There were no problems at all with pulling, patchiness, nothing. CTHULHU IS PLEASED. My swatch is two and a half coats, with no top coat.
And because I promised, here's an alternate photo that highlights the holo magical-ness! It's even more bold and pretty in the sun! I'm definitely going to wear this again once Vancouver decides to cheer up a little.
You can check out this polish and other Different Dimension polishes over at the Etsy shop here. Have you tried any polishes from Different Dimension? So far, colour me impressed!!! Also - does "Excelsior!" remind you of Stan Lee? Or is that just some weird "special" thing my brain is doing?
