Different Dimension Echoes Collection Review
July 18, 2013
You may or may not recognize the image above, I know I do for I love what it represent’s! The band Pink Floyd can be compared to The Beatles and Elvis Presley in my eyes. Even if you haven’t heard their music before you may still recognize some of the names in Different Dimension’s Echoes Collection which I have for you today! Neons and circles galore!
Money is a white crelly with blue, white and black large circles, neon yellow and green hexes and small circles, as well as gold and black square and round microglitters. This could also be worn on its own in two coats but I decided to use Julep’s ‘Courtney’ as an undie for Money making it look super green since it has that white base. With a few shakes I didn’t have too much trouble getting out those big round glitters and it applied really evenly! One coat then topped with my new Glossy Glam topcoat from my Girl Ricarda, probably my new fav topcoat. On my accent I used one of my new Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen‘s in green. After waiting around an hour or so I gently applied the dollar signs. Need a little more practice but I love the look of it!
Hey You is a lavender crelly with tiny dark purple and hot pink circles, small dark purple hexes as well as dark purple microglitters. This could also be worn on its own in 2-3 coats but I used Tillie Polishes ‘Sarong So Right’ as my undie. I really love the way the purple base made Hey You pop even more. Again using one of my new Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen’s, this time in Neon Pink I created the “art” on my middle finger. As you can see not all the lines came out the same pink color as it should. I think the reason why this happened was because I didn’t shake the pen enough before using it, since it was the first time. Alas I really love the faint light purple that it came out to be, such a Pink Floyd occurrence and design. Hey You applied perfectly and dried very smoothly with my Glossy Glam topcoat.
Wish You Were Here, one of my favorite Floyd songs, is banging glitter topper filled with blue, silver, pink and fuschia glitters in large and small circles and small squares with blue mircroglitters. Layered over Sally Hansen’s ‘Perfect Pear-ing’ and Zoya’s ‘Micky’ you can really see all the purty colors. And of course you can’t go wrong with round holo glitters, one of my fav trends that has been circling, haha circling, get it? After given it a good shake all the big glitters came out with one dip. A dab here and there on my nails and I was ready for a beach bar nightclub. Yea thats what I was feeling.
Time is also a glitter topper but filled with lots more varying types of glitter. Purple and black stars and big holo circles, black squares and diamonds, grey and silver hexes and small circles all filled up with silver microglitters, well that took some time to list. Layering time over a yellow was really calling me. The purple, black and yellow combo kind of reminds me of time and space. Using a new shade from Black Luna Lacquer ‘Master Plan’ I obtained the combo I wanted. (Master Plan will be available from Black Luna on July 27th) I also knew that I wanted to do a spiral water marble accent with this polish, time warpy right?! I used Sally Hansen’s ‘White On’ and ‘Black Out’ for the marble. Again shaking the bottle helped get the larger glitters out and I used one dabbed coat with my Glossy Glam topcoat.
Another Brick in the Wall totally reminds me of a fallen brick wall, but it would be at like Barbie’s house because of the awesome neon pink in it. Large and small neon pink hexes as well as neon pink, black and white squares filled up with plenty of black and holo silver mircoglitters. I layered one dabbed coat overtop of Sally Hansen’s ‘Kiwi Bikini’ and used ‘Fuchsia Power’ and ‘Black Out’ for the zebra like water marble. For some reason when I layered the glitter over Kiwi Bikini it changed it to a much more green color. This has happened to me before when using Milani Cosmetics ‘Teal’ and layering an indie glitter over it. See below for a bottle and nail comparison. It might be the base the glitter is in or it might be these teal colors fault. Whatever it is I still love the contrasting neon pink glitters overtop of the now green shade.
As you can see Kiwi Bikini is much more teal then what I have on my nails.
Last of this fabtabulous collection, Comfortably Numb, another fav song of mine. Large, medium and small neon pink hexes and lots of yellow medium and small hexes as well as pink and yellow squares fill up this topper. I wanted to use a brighter purple as an undie but then realized that Julep’s ‘Bette’ got a little darker once it was layered over itself. None the less the neon pink and yellow glitters still pop out at ya. Are you numb yet? I then used Julep’s ‘Avery’ and ‘Daisy’ to create a matching water marble. Shake, dab, coat with Glossy Glam and you are good to go!
All in all I really love the versatility of all these shades. Also the colors of all the glitters really popped to me. And I was surely sold on the fact that they were all based off of Pink Floyd tracks. Too awesome!
What do you all think of these shades and the little accents I did with some of them?
