My First Lynnderellas – Swatches & Review
I’m back today and I’m super excited to show you my first Lynnderella polishes! For those not aware, Lynnderella is the creator of AMAZING and incredibly unique polishes that she sells on her blog [HERE]. They’re also pretty darn hard to come by as well, as she only opens up her shop a few times a month at most and usually her supply runs out within 15 minutes each time! And she usually has a minimum order amount of 5 polishes. Which can be pretty steep for most people at $12 per bottle. I was extremely lucky to be involved with a group order that some of my twitter pals told me about and I picked up three Lynnderellas: Bride Of Franken, Snow Angel, and Connect The Dots.
I used Seche Vite Top Coat and Sally Hansen Nail Quencher Base Coat for all swatches shown today.
Snow Angel is a milky white based polish filled with round, hex, and square white glitter. This is one of the polishes from The First Edition collection. It has an ethereal quality that makes me think of Christmas and wintertime in general. I love it! Show here is 1 coat of Snow Angel layered over 2 coats of Orly Au Champagne.
Macro shot, I think the layering over Au Champagne is perfect with Snow Angel. They’re a match made in polish heaven. ^_^
Connect The Dots
Another one from The First Edition collection, Connect The Dots is a layering dynamo! It’s a clear base that’s filled to the brim with black and white bar, multi-sized hex, square, round, and micro glitter. And if that wasn’t enough this baby’s swimming in a fine white micro-shimmer!n You can layer this polish over practically any color and have instant nail art! Shown here is 1 coat of Connect The Dots over 2 coats of Boat House by Essie. The only issue I had with this one was the giant hex glitter pieces not wanting to stay down (you can see it on my pinky), but otherwise it applied very well.
Macro shot of Connect The Dots, for some reason this has such an ‘art deco’ feel to it for me. I love it!
Bride Of Franken
Bride Of Franken was the only one I nabbed from her Early Halloween collection, but it’s a stunner! Shown here I’ve layered 2 coats of Bride Of Franken over 1 coat of Black Creme by Wet n Wild, and it’s positively glowing! Lynnderella describes it as “Electric blue multi-sized glitter (like the flakey glitter from Maybelline Colorama Lights of Lilac) with holographic rainbow dust, pink and blue sparks in a sheer, lavender base“… I couldn’t agree more! This one has such a fantastic celestial look to it that it would have been a crime for me not to use it in my galaxy nails (tutorial [HERE] if you missed it).
Macro shot of the polish, I was so excited to be wearing it that I forgot to completely blend in my cuticle creme.
Aren’t they gorgeous?! Any of you gals have some Lynnderellas in your collection? I’m definitely a Lynnderella fangirl now, and it’s my new mission to get my hands on as many of her glorious polishes as I possibly can.
And for those that want to get their hands on Lynnderellas, I’ve got some GREAT news for you. Lynnderella will still be selling polishes via her blog, but now you’ll also be able to find all of her collections (past and present) at Llarowe starting in December!!! I’m not sure what prices are going to be like just yet, but as soon as I find out I’ll let you all know! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of her polishes from her Funny Money/Holiday House Guest collections!
