Lit from Within: Those neon holos are totally rad, dude! Like, Gag me!

Those neon holos are totally rad, dude! Like, Gag me!

I am a child of the 80s.  I did my time in pegged jeans, triple layer matching socks, and big earrings.  So, I was a little nostalgic for Different Dimension's 80's Baby collection.

You may remember a stamping challenge a few Sundays ago where I used a bunch of these polishes as the base for my Earth Day challenge:

Let's take a better look, shall we?

Totally and Gnarly.  Totally is the yellow/lime green, and Gnarly is the bright spring green.  They go together, well, like Totally Gnarly, dude.

Tubular (orange) and Ditz (pink).  Classic neon pairing!  The orange is a little muted, but the pink is straight bubblegum.

Whatever (purple) and Homeboy (blue).  "What-EVer" is more a part of my 90s (think Cher from Clueless) but I'm sure I got started in the 80s.  These are bright, true purple and blue.

The holo in all of these is a pretty subtle scattered holo, and is more for giving the appearance of depth than anything.  The colors are so bright and saturated - especially the pink, purple, and blue.  I don't know if they are true neons, as they don't dry matte and they don't need a white base, but they are certainly a bright pop of color.

Did this transport you to the 80s?  Was it a good trip for you?

If you'd like more information on Different Dimension, you can find them on Facebook, and on their Etsy store.


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
