Different Dimension Swatch Spam

Hi everyone! Today's post is an indie brand that I hadn't heard of before, Different Dimension. DD takes inspiration from things like movies, books, and causes close to her heart.

50 Shades is inspired by, you guessed it, 50 Shades of Grey! It's a dark grey jelly base with lots of different types of glitter and shards in it. Seriously, there are a lot. For this swatch, I've shown one coat over Sally Hansen Wet Cement. Wet Cement is a pretty light grey so you can see how much the base is tinted.



Light It Up Blue is a polish inspired by World Autism Day, the organization Autism Speaks, and its Light It Up Blue initiative. This polish is so appropriate for its inspiration, because it literally lights up blue! How cool is that? I've layered one coat of it over white for this swatch. Of course, layering over white causes the polish to glow better, but this one really doesn't need help glowing -- it has an incredibly strong and quick charging glow.

An awesome thing to note about this polish (and her other autism awareness polish, Puzzle Pieces) is that 50% of the profits are donated to the cause.



Social Suicide is a black and white glitter AND the name comes from Mean Girls! I'M ALL OVER IT! I've layered one coat of it over China Glaze Wicked Style. It has really good glitter density and applies easily. I love the combination of glitter sizes, and this is a great option for those of you that don't like black and white glitters with bar pieces.



That Is So Fetch is another polish from the Mean Girls collection. I've shown two coats of it here over OPI Rumple's Wiggin. This polish is primarily purples, but it also has some great iridescent glitters in it! I really love this one, it's delicate, like a spray of flowers or something.


All in all, a really great range of polishes with some really fun inspiration! The formulas on all of these were really easy to work with. I think my favorite is Light It Up Blue...but you guys know how much of a sucker I am for glow. :)

Different Dimension polishes are available on Etsy, and you can also keep up with the brand on Facebook. Readers of Chalkboard Nails can save 20% on their orders for the next two weeks (until the 31st) by using the code CHALKBOARD20! GET GOIN!

  2. Uh that glow polish is AWESOME and I'm crying over the ones named after Mean Girls. I think I'd want them specifically for the fact that they're named after that movie but they're also my favorite ones! May have to place a lil order soon...

  20. Please please please search the web for the phrase "Autism Speaks doesn't speak for me" and STOP supporting them. I love your blog and the nail art you do, but every time I see you supporting Autism Speaks my heart dies a little.
