With the festive season fast approaching I am drawn to everything sparkly. These 2 beauties arrived on my doorstep today and I needed to share them with you ASAP.
On the left is Sexy and I Snow It by Different Dimension (a US based indie seller) and it is from their recent winter 2014 collection. This polish is a beautiful pale gold holographic, perfect for New Year. It has a perfect formula, has full coverage on 2 coats and is absolutely stunning! It does dry slightly gritty so you’ll need a top coat if you prefer a very smooth finish.
The holographic in this polish is so bright, it even sparkles under low lighting. Below are swatches both with and without flash.
The second polish is from Fun Lacquer an indie company based in Singapore. It is called Royal Chapel and it comes in 2 variations- glitter or holographic. This one is the holographic. It is a gorgeous pinky bronze colour with a ton of holographic shimmer in it. It isn’t quite as chunky as the first polish and so doesn’t have as gritty a texture when dry, you’ll still need a topcoat though. This one is also slightly more sheer, especially on the first coat. It is 95% opaque with 2 coats which is good enough for me, but if you like total opacity you may want 3 coats.
Below are shots with and without flash to really show the holographic effect. For reference, all swatches are 2 coats.
I got both of these polishes from Rainbow Connection which is a UK based indie polish distributor. I have bought loads from this site and I would highly recommend them.
