Different Dimension The Northern Lights Are Out

Ladies & Gents, I'm on a polish roll here - everything I've pulled out of mount untried is lovely, for a good couple of weeks now.  Winning!

Different Dimension made The Northern Lights Are Out for the April 2017 Holo Hookup box.  It's thoroughly true to the name: a deep charcoal that's not quite black as night, with an ethereal flash of color overlay that shimmers from piney green to soft purple.

I have several duochromes with this same green-to-purple shift, and it may be one of the more versatile pigments.  This version is packed with a silver holo flake that looks dense enough to be TV static or the speckling of a wild bird egg in low light, yet lies totally flat on the nail, and turns into a little holo sparkle in brighter light.

The green flash was anywhere from pine to ghostly green, and the purple anywhere from a tinge on the charcoal to bright wine - overall, yep, the night sky lit up with flashes of color.

TNLAO was just barely shy of being a one-coater; I'm wearing 2 here to even out any hidden thin spots.  The formula was just a touch thicker than I like, but all of the pigment and tons of holo flake were well-suspended and not at all settling out in the bottle.  The thicker formula meant that I got a small chip here and there about the 3rd day of wear, but nothing major.

Rating:  yes indeedy, another fantastic 4 out of 5 stars - I love this winning streak!

Where to buy:  sadly, as part of an exclusive-filled box, destashes & blog sales are your hunting grounds.
