Hoo boy you guys, this post is gonna be a doozy (and psst... check out the end of the post for a special coupon code)! We're gonna be looking at the Different Dimension Santa Baby Collection for holiday 2012, plus one extra polish that isn't officially part of the collection but is also out now. The Santa Baby collection polishes are all named using lyrics from the song of the same name. The song was originally by Eartha Kitt but has since been covered by artists like Madonna, RuPaul, and LeAnn Rimes, among others.
Hurry Down the Chimney Tonight is a red and white shredded and bar glitter topper. This is one coat over black. It's really cool looking and a lot of fun. It would look great over a forest green for a holiday party! The red bars have a bit of a reflective curve to them but they do sit flat on the nail.
I'll Wait Up For You Dear is a mix of uniformly sized green and red microglitters in a clear base. I've layered it here over white. A fun choice for those of you who want to wear Christmas glitter but don't want it to be as chunky!
I've Been an Angel All Year is officially a white base polish with a slight blue shimmer, plus blue, white and silver microglitters. While the description says the base is white, it looked kind of like a super light grey on me, and I really liked that about it! It looks like a really lovely granite or something. This is three coats.
I've Been an Awful Good Girl is a girly mix of pink and purple glitters in a light base. The base has a heavy pink flecky shimmer in it, that is very cool and pretty but nearly impossible to photograph properly. This is two coats.
Out of Space Convertible contains pink, purple, and blue holographic microglitters in a black jelly base. It's super sparkly and the black base adds a nice amount of drama. This is probably one of my favorites in this collection and I've shown three coats here.
Santa Baby has red, white, & pale pink glitters boosted by a sprinkling of micro holographic silver. It has a clear base and is shown here over China Glaze Prey Tell. This polish would work really well for Valentine's Day, too!
Sign Your 'X' On the Line is a really neat shredded topper made up of golds and silvers. It's quite luxurious looking and would look great over just about any color (I like it over dark colors best, though)! I've picked China Glaze Ride the Waves for the undies in the photo below.
Think of All the Fellas That I Haven't Kissed is a beautiful mix of purples, teals, and blues . The glitter sizes on this are all fairly small and glide on effortlessly. I've shown one coat here over China Glaze Secret Periwinkle.
PHEW OKAY! So those eight were the Santa Baby Collection. I just have one more to share that isn't a part of that set!
Christmahanakwanzika is a mix of red, green, yellow, blue, and black glitters. The blue glitters are a dark and rich navy, and they can sometimes look black. This polish has so many colors that I've layered it over a neutral white jelly, OPI Don't Touch My Tutu, to keep from taking away from any of them.
In terms of formula, I don't have any complaints with any of these. None of them were thick or clumpy for me, and they all give a nice glitter payoff without making you work too hard. Any favorites for you guys?
