L'Oreal Gold Dust Collection - Too Dimensional?

Hello again.  This time I've got another of the L'Oreal Gold Dust line, Too Dimensional?.  No, that isn't a punctuation error, there is a question mark in the name of the polish.

Too Dimensional? is a purple based textured polish with lots of gold glitter along with purple and holographic glitters.  This, to me, is the most blingy of all the Gold Dust polishes.  It really sparkles well enough on its own. I just wish I was able to capture it on camera but I think you'll get the idea.  Again, these were taken in the bright light of a north facing window.

this one is with camera flash, which shows the sparkle best

I also took a couple under my daylight lamp before I put on top coat.  One with flash, one without.

These next two are with one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.  Brings out the sparkle while keeping most of the texture.  It would probably take three or even four coats to smooth this one out.  Or there are some special top coats made especially for the purpose of smoothing out glitter.

As I've been doing these, it's occurred to me how similar Too Dimensional? is to OPI's Alcatraz Rocks.  Mainly because I ended up saving pictures for both in the same folder and would have had trouble separating them had I not already renamed the shots of Alcatraz Rocks.  I'll do a comparison post of them at the end of the week.  Might even include Darling Diva's Seriously Serious since those photos looked quite a bit like both Too Dimensional? and Alcatraz Rocks.

Two more L'Oreal's to go - Sexy in Sequins and I Like It Chunky. Look for those posts early next week.

Until then, thanks for reading and stay tuned.
