Cupcake Polish Berry Good Looking

Hi guys

I've been seeing a lot of pictures of this polish in the nail community and nobody has anything bad to say about it so I took the plunge and decided to try to grab it on a recent restock. Success!

I applied this polish on the day it arrived to see for myself what all the hype was about.

The first thing I noticed was that this polish was thicker than I like although this made it almost a one coater. I applied two coats to cover the few thinner areas.

The second thing I noticed was that the holo is quite muted in normal household lighting and in shade although it came alive when in direct lighting from a bulb or the sun.

The basic colour of the polish is a beautiful purple but from the hype I was expecting this polish to be spectacular at all times. I was therefore disappointed to find it was quite underwhelming. My disappointment continued when one nail chipped within 24 hours and two more chipped while I was sleeping!

I will give this polish another chance to impress me, maybe using different base and top coats to hopefully extend wear time.

If you want to try this polish for yourself you can pre-order it from Rainbow Connection UK here.

Did anyone else have a similar experience with this polish? Are there any others that didn't live up to the hype in your opinion?

Bye for now, Louise x

Different Dimension Love To Hate You

Hi guys

Today I'm wearing Different Dimension Love To Hate You.Love To Hate You is a jam packed glitter topper filled with small white and purple circle glitters as well as larger circle glitters, squares, stars, diamonds and hearts. The pictures show one coat of Love To Hate You over Nails Inc Colville Mews. I didn't need to redip my brush to get more glitter or fish for the larger glitters although I did have to manipulate the polish on my nails to make sure I got even coverage. The circle glitters really catch the light and this topper is very pretty. This is my first polish by Different Dimension and I'm sure it won't be my last.Which Different Dimension polishes do you think I need to add to my collection?

Bye for now, Louise x
