Different Dimension Good Evening Clarice

For my easter-time nails, I went with a soft minty green very subtle holo...that just happens to actually be a Halloween polish and also happens to glow like a raver kid on drugs.  Here's Different Dimension's Good Evening Clarice.

Clarice is a pale minty green, that often looked dusty or slightly greyed-out in lower lighting.  It was pretty sheer, so you could totally try a layer of this over a lighter color for a touch of subtle shimmer and a glow in the dark flash.

 There's some holo in this one, and it is actually a linear holo, but it's quite subtle.  Unless you're taking macro pics and looking for it, there's not really the appearance of the typical holo flame at any point.

What you do get is the typical silvery appearance of a holo polish when it's in low light.  The silvery shimmer was a nice compliment to the pale green shade, rather than a dilution of it.

What I'm not able to show you here is the AMAZING power of this polish's glow in the dark abilities - my night pics of this were weak and dim, so all glow photography tips welcome.  With no extra effort on my part, it would give a noticeable glow all night and into the morning (fun game: don't turn on the lights going downstairs when it's time to go to work, and try not to trip and die while being fascinated by your nails).  If I "charged" it by holding my fingers near a bright lightbulb for about 30 seconds, the glow power was enough I could see its shine on an object 6 inches away from my nails.

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars.  An easy to work with formula plus a subtle little sparkle would have been nice on their own, but the POW GLOW totally entranced my inner 3 year old.  Plus, we're obsessed with Hannibal Lecter in this house, so it's a win all around.

Where to buy:  I don't know if she'll bring back a greatest hits from collections gone by, but you can always ask at Different Dimension's etsy page.  You can also pick up these potions at Llarowe.
