Different Dimension – Just Keep Swimming

Today’s polish is from Different Dimension and it’s called Just Keep Swimming.  I have many polishes from Missi’s shop and I love them all!  Check out a mani I’ve done before with one of her polishes here. There is also a Pink Floyd themed polish set I got from her that I have yet to swatch.  Yes.  You heard me right, a Pink Floyd themed polish set!  See more about it here.  She’s got tons of other themed polishes like Big Bang Theory, Mean Girls and Pretty Little Liars. You should really check out her store even if only to drool over its awesomeness!!  😀  But I digress…..

This polish is a bright cerulean blue linear holographic polish that is chock full of sparkly goodness.  The photos below show two coats of Just Keep Swimming over a coat of Seche Rebuild and one layer of Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat.  the first two photos were taken outdoors in direct sunshine and you can see how this brings out the most beautiful holographic dance of color.  the last photo was taken indoors with a flash.

Here is the flash photo.  My puny little nails are not showing the true glory of this polish, but the bottle shot does give you an idea of how strong the holo is in this color.  I absolutely love it and will use it again and again, I’m sure.  On a side note, there are some cat hairs that made their way into today’s photos.  I do try to prep my bottles, etc, for photographing, but inevitably the occasional cat hair has and will continue to make its way into my photos.  It’s my way of letting the babies share in the blogging experience. I can’t say for sure if this hair came from Stewie, Otto or Maggie, but they are all here in spirit.  😀

That’s it for today, I hope you enjoyed this color as much as I did. I have SO many new holographic polishes I don’t even know which to swatch next, but I will figure it out.  I promise!  Hope you all have a great Friday and weekend ahead!

Thanks for stopping by!!


Comic-Con Geek Week Nail Art Challenge – Day 3

Comic-Con Geek Week Nail Art Challenge

Inspired by a movie

Hey, everybody, guess what I have for you today?  Book review!  No.  Nail art!  The movie I chose to represent my Day 3 entry in the Comic-Con Geek Week Nail Art challenge is Star Trek (2009).

Since I am a horrible artist, I chose to use my nail art to represent the uniforms of the crew of the Starship Enterprise.  I even used my brushes again to paint the little symbols on the breast of the uniform!  I tried doing them on a plastic bag like I did for my Day 1 submission HERE, but that did not work and I ended up painting them directly on the nail  by hand.  Oddly enough, they came off the bag overnight and now I have random gold Star Trek emblems on my workspace.  Ahhh, memories.
