Different Dimension Cosmologically Speaking Part 2

Good morning!  Same old song and dance - I meant to get this post up last night but I just ran out of time. Ok truthfully I passed out for a 3 hour nap late in the day and fell behind on things to take care of.  This post.  That gigantic pile of laundry that needs to be folded (UGH).  Well I am still avoiding the laundry because I'd rather share these amazing holos with you!  Last year Different Dimension came out with the Cosmologically Speaking collection - full of holos, shimmers and micro glitters.  This year Missi is at it again and will be releasing Cosmologically Speaking Part 2, a collection of 6 gorgeous holos!  I received these in my blogger gift bag after attending the Cocktails & Colors indie event while I was out in Las Vegas to participate in the always awesome CosmoProf.  Well I have to say that I think the indie events not only rival the big convention, but they are even better because it's a great chance to meet makers and bloggers and really connect with them on a personal level.  I will share more of my feelings on that with you later when I start posting my coverage of all things CPNA.  For now I am ready to jump into holos, how about you?  
The Cosmologically Speaking Part 2 collection launches on 8/1.  You can get a 30% discount using the code CPNA2015.  Code expires 8/31/15.

I went in alphabetical order this time (instead of rainbow order) and up first is Absolute Zero.  This is a silvery nude holo, kind of a champagne color.  It shows more silver in the direct sunlight.  It's a gorgeous linear holo with a smattering of holo micro glitters.  The formula and application were both excellent; smooth flowing, easily brushed on, no dragging.  I used 3 coats of Absolute Zero for full coverage.  I used 1 layer of topcoat to finish.

Blue Shift is WHOA!  It's a super rich, vibrant blue.  Of course it's a linear holo,  But it's also full of silvery holo micro glitter.  Guess what, this was a one coater!  It's so freaking pretty I was mesmerized by my nails when I had it on.  The formula and application of Blue Shift were both fabulous.  Creamy, opaque and totally fabulous.  I finished with a layer of topcoat.

Cosmic Ray is a hot pink linear holo with a helping of silver holo micro glitters.  I love this color.  I felt like Barbie wearing it.  Again, the formula and application were both superb, no issues to report on this baby.  I used 2 coats of Cosmic Ray for full coverage and topped it with 1 layer of topcoat.

Moving along, here's Quasar.  This beauty is a stunning soft purple linear holo.  Quasar actually has blue sparks in it, that I didn't show off well at all (sorry).  When I first started painting with this I thought it was going to be sheer but it wasn't at all!  The formula was nice and opaque and built up perfectly in 2 coats.  I finished with a layer of topcoat.

There are so many gorgeous colors in this collection but I have to admit Retrograde is my favorite.  This warm golden-brown linear holo is stunning.  Retrograde is full of gold holo glitters and iridescent flakies.  This is the brown to rule them all people!  Formula and application were both perfect.  I used 2 coats of Retrograde for full coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.

Rounding out the collection is Space-Time.  I love this aqua-teal shade, it's fun and wearable and very summery.  Along with being a linear holo, there are also tiny holo glitters and blue sparks.  The formula and application were both stellar - just like this entire collection, no issues to bring up.  I used 2 coats of Space-Time for full coverage.  1 layer of topcoat to finish it up!

Different Dimension will also have this nail art glass available in the shop on 8/1.  It's perfect to use as a watermarbling, nail art or brush cleaning.  Or you can use it for "other" purposes (hehe).
