Different Dimension + Cupcake Polish + Crystal’s Charity Lacquers: Duos for the Houston SPCA


Someone done jacked with my tv and now there’s only one hour of Full House instead of two, so how all this swatching’s getting done then, we’ll never freaking know.  Cuz I have a routine, a tradition, and now what?  Just sit here in SILENCE painting nails like a crazy person?  Ugh.  Me and Nickelodeon’s about to have words, I guarantee.  Although I’m not much of a scrapper, so most likely it’ll just be a symbolic recap of me in the 6th grade slapping some girl in the ear.  

But aside from all that, FOR ONE, I’m an extremely cool person, and TWO, Crystal’s Charity Lacquers is back once again and it’s time to hoard some polish! BOOM.

Each month or so, Crystal’s Charity Lacquers chooses a charity and teams up with indie brands to create exclusive polishes to sell and help raise funds for the cause. This round, she has chosen Missi from Different Dimension, Sara from Cupcake Polish and Lindsey from Tonic Polish to release some pretties to benefit the Houston SPCA

So get off your no-buys, ladies! ANOTHER TOTAL LEGIT JUSTIFICATION-type scenario just fell into your lap like no big deal. Lesssss go!


We have chosen the Houston SPCA because of the tireless work they have put into protecting and rescuing the animals in Houston who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. The Houston SPCA is also a no kill shelter.  I will not support a shelter who puts time limits on an animal finding their perfect forever home.  Their mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals.  

Throughout the disaster of Hurricane Harvey, the Houston SPCA have been on the front lines, doing everything they can to help the animals and for that, we thank them.

Welp. We’re definitely doing this one.  I can’t think of any better reason to spend some money today.  And then go kiss your fur babies straight in the mouth cuz we lub them more than anything, oh yes we do. Cat butthole in the face notwithstanding. 

As mentioned, there are three indie brands  involved in this fundraiser, but I only have swatches for two. However, as your PROFESSIONAL BLOGGER EXTRAORDINAIRE, I will give you deets on Tonic’s offering at the bottom of this post.  This is a good time to send bonus points, just so you know. 

This sale is kind of a quick one so I figure less chatty mo better. So here’s your brief rundown of colors. An insane display of pretty in 3 .. 2 .. 1 ..


Good things we’re doing no chatty, cuz I am LITERALLY SPEECHLESS.  Moan-y throat noises are about to come out, I just know it.


DESCRIPTION:  A metallic rose gold holographic with added holographic microglitters

OPACITY:  Two coats plus top coat

My eyes, my eyes!  Uhhhhhhhnnnnnnnn.  See?  Speechless.  The sparkle in this one is a complete driving hazard, just so you know.  Hello Mr. Pothole, we’s now best frans.

OMG, what?  Shut up, Brain.


DESCRIPTION:  A gunmetal holographic with red shimmer and holographic microflakies

OPACITY:  Two coats plus top coat

Oooooh!  What about this one?!  SUPER HARDCORE IN LOVE.  The shimmer peeping through gives me a dire case of the Grabby Fingers.  And so we want 18,000 bottles.  Completely normal behavior, in case you’re curious.

Still upright?  Just checking.  Either way, hang tight. More noodle leg-type scenarios are coming!


We are officially pass-out-y. Bring on the smelling salts! And Leonardo, just in case.


DESCRIPTION:  An indigo base with heavy red shimmer, holographic microglitters and subtle holographic effect

OPACITY:  Two coats plus top coat

OMG, the sparkle, the bling, the ladylike composure just OUT THE FREAKING WINDOW.  I swear, if I stay married after this, it’ll be a damn near miracle.


DESCRIPTION:  A teal base with heavy green to gold shimmer, holographic glitters and subtle holographic effect

OPACITY:  Two coats plus top coat

Oooh, we got a GREEN one!  Excuse me while I attempt to reattach my jaw to my face about a billion times.  Cuz where there is green there is me being the most unattractive mess of all time, ever.  Drooling, Level EXPERT at minimum.   

And now, we SWOON. You guys. Get on this like stat.


Pre-sale for the polishes will run from October 1 at 10am CST thru October 7 at 11:59pm CST.  In case you don’t math well, that’s 7 days of panic, so be sure to set alarms so you don’t miss out. Cuz while the polish is bueno to like the trillionth degree, a portion of the proceeds are being donated to the Houston SPCA which makes this hoarding problem well and truly worth it. Get on it, boo boos!

Polishes will be available in each respective maker’s site, so here are the linkies all typed and ready to go:
