Hey my lovely readers! How are you on this fine 50 degree winter day??? Well, not technically winter, but seriously 50?!?! What is going on? It’s really hard to get into the holiday spirit when it doesn’t feel like the season. So today, I am bringing you so brightness. I have a new to me brand, Dimension Nails, that is 10-free, cruelty free, and 100% vegan! I have 2 polishes and a stamping plate so lets get to it!
The first polish we have is Mako Shark. It is a deep teal crème polish that is very opaque. The formula was super smooth like butter. An all around fantastic polish. I used 2 coats plus top coat for my swatch. The flash pic is color accurate. It was coming off a bit bluer without the flash.
Here is Mako Shark with some silver flakies added to it. The how-to will be in my swatch video for these babies!
The second polish is Raspberry Cordial. This one is even more opaque than Mako Shark. A total one coater if you polish carefully. I used 2 coats plus top coat for my swatch of Raspberry Cordial. Mostly just an OCD thing. Again, this polish is effortlessly applied.
**Be careful when painting and removing these polishes! Due to the highly pigmented nature of these polishes, they can stain!
The art I did over this color was using the stamping plate that I chose to review.
The stamper I chose to use ended up not being a good one for the plate. It happens. After I was done filming, I tried 2 of my other “go-to” stampers. There was a huge difference once I found THE stamper. The 3 stamper I used are a big marshmallow stamper, a silver fancy stamper, and a long clear stamper. These were my findings:
|big marshmallow stamper, squishy head|
|fancy silver stamper, firm head|
|long clear stamper, medium firmness|
|You can clearly see the difference|
This is just a better angle to show Mako Shark stamped over black
The stamping I did on my actual nails came out pretty descent. Next time I will use another stamper. The plate itself is etched perfectly.
