Fall Mani and a Special Announcement!

While all I am seeing on instagram and facebook are winter manis, but I am not yet ready for snow flakes.

I chose to do a warm Fall gradient. 
I started with a base of Lacquer Lust Sunkissed.

After that had dried, I used a makeup sponge to do a gradient using Lacquer Lust Sunkissed, Orly Rock-It and Picture Polish Demeter.

I then used Essie Penny Talk to stamp some leaves from Bundle Monster plate BM04.
I thought it turned out rather well and am hesitant to take it off. :)

Until next time,

Different Dimension Shooting Stars part 2

I have another gorgeous Shooting Star duo from Different Dimension today.
First up we have Cassiopeia. Now in Greek mythology Cassiopeia had a very interesting life, and it is related to the last two Different Dimension Shooting Star polishes I showed you HERE.
Now Cassiopeia was Andromeda's vain and boastful mother, she claimed that her daughter was more beautiful than all the sea nymphs, resulting in her having to sacrifice her daughter to a horrible sea monster.

Cassiopeia was made into a constellation, but the sea nymphs that she had insulted still had some say in the matter and she circles Polaris our North Star forcing her to be upside down for half the time, to teach her humility.

This polish is a gorgeous pink holo with teeny gold flakes mixed in. I used two coats in the pictures above.

Next up we have Perseus which is my favorite of the two. Perseus also plays a major part in Greek Mythology, as well as recent pop culture. Perseus was a son of Zeus, he was the hero that chopped off Medusa's head in order to provide a wedding gift to appease an awful king, on his way back he saw a women chained to rocks on the coast line, aside from her tears in hair, he would have believe her a statue. That woman was none other then Andromeda, the daughter of King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia. As the sea monster approached, Perseus turn it to stone with Medusa's head.

Perseus is a gorgeous minty green creme/jelly polish full of gold flakes and micro glitter in an assortment of colors!
I used two coats with a thick top coat of SV.


Now this duo had an extremely limited release and it is unlikely that we will see them again. But Missi is going to keep this train rolling with more Shooting Stars being available is small batches for limited times. In order to stay up to date with all of this make sure that you follow Different Dimension on Facebook HERE, and on instagram @missibarry.

Different Dimension Shooting Stars

Today I have the first set of Different Dimension's very limited edition line of Shooting Star polishes! Now these two polishes came out two weeks ago? I hadn't had time to swatch and wight about them till now because working 11am-8pm sucks up a lot of time for swatching. 
First up we have Andromeda! 

In Greek mythology, Andromeda is the daughter of King Cepheus and Cassiopeia, because Andromeda's mom Cassiopeia was incredibly vain and believed herself to be even more beautiful then all the Nereids (sea nymphs). As punishment Poseidon commanded a sea monster attack the kingdom so Andromeda was chained to a rock as sacrifice to the appease the monster.

Andromeda is a gorgeous berry red holographic polish, above is two coats with one coat of Sally Hansen Dries Instantly. I was able to wear this for close two weeks with no chips.

Next up we have Cepheus. In mythology Cepheus is King of Aethiopia and husband of Cassiopeia. He was also the father of Andromeda.  When Poseidon sent the sea monster to attack the kingdom, Cepheus and Cassiopeia consulted an oracle that told then to sacrifice Andromeda.

Cepheus is a gorgeous polish for Fall. This is a beautiful brown polish full of brown, gold and bronze flakies. It is gorgeous and some of the flakes have a holographic shimmer in the right light. I used two coats below. The polish dries with a little bit of texture so I used two coats of Gelous and then a thick coat of SV.

This shooting star is sold out, and it went fast but Missi will be releasing one or two shooting star polish every other week, unless she decides otherwise. You can find her polish in her store HERE and make sure to follow her on Facebook HERE and on instagram @missibarry, you can also follow me on instagram @brittanymoody

 I can not wait until next weeks Shooting Star release! Until next time
