Different Dimension: Excelsior, Yours Mine and Flowers, and Squarey Hexey

Random swatches of a few more polishes I received from Different Dimension today! Here is the holographic Excelsior, pretty pastel Yours, Mine, and Flowers, and very sparkly Squarey Hexey.

Different Dimension Excelsior
Excelsior is a white-leaning-grey subtle holographic polish with multi-colored shimmer that give it a touch of sparkle and texture. I really love the balance of the holo effect with the color-- it isn't metallic-looking, and the white/grey is very soft and flattering. Plus the colorful flecks make it even more interesting and unique!

I know this polish is "Excelsior" and not "Excalibur," the legendary sword of King Arthur, but something about the name, the color, and the prismatic sparkle remind me of that fabled blade!

The formula was excellent, smooth and easy to apply, and opaque in about three coats. In full sun the holo isn't super strong but definitely visible.

Yours, Mine, and Flowers is a matte pastel glitter topper with large pink flowers, small green, blue, pink, and lavender hexes, and pastel and iridescent micro-glitter. These colors look very sweet and Springtime-y together, and would look lovely over many different colors! Here I have two coats layered over a bright turquoise, L'Oreal Not a Cloud in Sight.

The formula was great as well, and the glitters applied evenly, with just a little glitter-grabbing needed for the large flowers.

And lastly, but certainly not least-ly, is Squarey Hexey, a blend of holographic turquoise, green, pink, and lavender hexes and sqaures in a clear base. Yeah, it's pretty amazing, and definitely one of my favorites! Lots of colors + lots of sparkle makes TONS of awesomeness!

The formula, amount of glitter, and size variation were excellent! Here I used two coats of Squarey Hexey over Excelsior to really amp up the sparkle.
