Ninja Polish Vegas Exclusive- Streaking Ninja



I recently went to Cosmoprof very spur-of-the-moment.  Rhonni (from Ninja Polish) and I talked each other into going about four days before it started and subsequently, we also shared a room together.   She wanted to make a Vegas Exclusive and she ended up in a creative frenzy and made one of the coolest polishes I have seen in awhile called Streaking Ninja!  She was so involved in making this polish, that she did NOT write the recipe down, so these won't be made again. There will be some given away though and I will talk more about that at the end of the post.
Streaking Ninja is also considered a part of the Nothing Stays in Vegas Collection that Ninja Polish will be releasing in mid-August, even though it will not be for sale.  
Get ready and buckle up.  This polish is not only a duo chrome, holo, purple to red... It is ONE COAT. Honestly, this is one of those rare polishes that makes you gasp, knowing you have something special.
It is a plum purple with blackened edges most of the time, but will change to red at extreme angles.
In the sun, it shows off the holo!
I was blown away by the beauty of Streaking Ninja, and have worn it a few times since bringing it home.  I was sad that it wouldn't be available to the general public to buy, but Ninja Polishes will be announcing giveaways of it on her Facebook page and on her Instagram. (See below for links.) I will also be giving one away.
Here is the duo chrome properties! Isn't it amazing?!
Giveaway details:
I will be giving one away via my Instagram/Facebook.  Follow me in both places for more information on how to win.
Ninja Polish will be giving several away on her various social media outlets. Please follow her at the links below to get more information on that!
Price:  Not available to buy, but being given away by Ninja Polish and myself.

Girly Bits Stardust by Ehmkay Nails


Pam from Girly Bits did a custom polish for Michelle of Ehmkay Nails and I have it to show you tonight!
    First, let me say that I was able to meet Michelle while in Las Vegas for Cosmoprof.  We met in the Lush store in Mandalay Bay and she walked us through there like a pro! I loved getting to hang out with her and she is one heck of a sweetheart-full of fire!
Stardust by Ehmkay Nails is a stunning silvery-lilac base with holo and fine neon glitter in it.  
It melds so perfectly together-I really had to stare at my nails to try to figure out what was in it.  
It went on easily in two coats and I used two coats of top coat as well.
I absolutely love the neon glitters in this! It gives this polish the uniqueness that Girly Bits is known for and is such a great added touch.
Parting Thoughts: I loved this polish and the neon glitters really make this a stand out.

Price: $10-$12.50 on her website. Other stockists may vary.

Different Dimension Cosmologically Speaking Part 2 Plus a Discount Code!



Today's post is my first time trying Different Dimension. Before you gasp in shock and shake your head at me, let me just say that after having tried this new collection, I am shaking my own head at myself.  HOW could I have let this amazing brand go untried by me for so long?! (If you've never tried them before either, now is your chance as I have a 30% off discount code at the end of this post!)

Cosmologically Speaking part 2 is a set of six ultra holos that will have you staring in stunned silence at your nails.   
Missi, the talented maker behind Different Dimension, will also have a very cool nail art glass for sale that you can use for nail art/water marbling or cleaning off your brushes. The collection and the glass will be in her shop on August 1st.
I've got a lot of pictures, so let's jump right in!  
Absolute Zero is a nude ultra-holo that went on smoothly in two coats. There is a small amount of fine holo glitter in it, but you can't tell when putting it on, because it goes on so smoothly.
I honestly thought this would be my least favorite of the bunch, so I tried it on first. NO. It is in my top two of this collection!  This is mannequin hands on acid!
Look at this macro!
I tried on Retrograde next. It was a two coat, ultra-holo with a bit of holo glitter in a bronze shade. 
It went on very smoothly (the larger, high quality brush helps a lot!) I was so impressed with Retrograde, I had to put it back on after swatching all six polishes.
The holo effect in these is so stunning, I couldn't stop taking pictures!

Space-Time is a grass green ultra-holo.  I used two coats of this one as well. 
Space-Time had the most holo glitter in it of the bunch, but that didn't make application any different. It was as easy to put on as the rest.
It was also just as blinding in the sun!
I had no clean up afterwards due to the amazing brushes that DD puts in their bottles.

Purple lovers, please hold on to your seats.  Quaser is a pink-leaning purple ultra-holo.  
I used two coats and application was flawless. 
This is a must-have for you purple, holo lovers out there!
There was a tiny amount of holo glitter in this one, but it didn't affect application at all and it made my nails very eye-catching!

Cosmic Ray is the hot pink ultra-holo in this set.  This one is sure to be a hot seller as I know many ladies with a hot pink polish problem!
Once again, I used two very easy coats and application was easy peasy.
I am completely overwhelmed with the gorgeousness of these polishes!
The ultra holo in these just does not stop!

Blue Shift is the last one of the collection. It was almost a one coater and very opaque.  
The base color is that type of blue that I am always falling for in a polish!  
Blue Shift had the least amount of holo in it, but still showed plenty in the sun.
It reminds me of a starry night!

Parting Thoughts: I was blown away by this entire collection.  I had never previously owned a Different Dimension polish, but I can tell you now without hesitation, that will be changing.  The polishes are stellar and on the higher end of quality indie polishes.  My top two were Absolute Zero and Retrograde. 

Discount Code:  CPNA2015  for 30% off any orders placed before 8/31/15.
