Lynnderella I Don't Mean Rhinestones (I think she means diamonds!!)


Base coat: one coat Zoya Get Even
Color: two coats China Glaze Passion in the Pacific, two coats Lynnderella I Don't Mean Rhinestones
Top Coat: one coat Seche Vite
Application: Excellent (out of poor, average, good, excellent)



Lynnderella I Don't Mean Rhinestones is such a gorgeous shade of teal/turquoise glitter. It's a shade of turquoise that I do not own in glitter polish and I definitely think I needed it. Now that I own it, I think my life was incomplete without it LOL! I Don't Mean Rhinestones is a mix of turquoise glitters, fine holographic glitters, and holo diamond-shaped glitter in a clear base. The holo diamond glitter is very cool, and again, unique!

Applying I Don't Mean Rhinestones was cake. I just applied it like a normal polish, no dabbing or fishing or special methods. This is two coats on top of China Glaze Passion in the Pacific. Passion in the Pacific REALLY matches the color of the glitter in I Don't Mean Rhinestones. If you're looking for a perfect matching base, this is it. Passion in the Pacific is still available at transdesign.com (in the China Glaze A-Z section), although it's marked as "available while supplies last".



Base coat: one coat Zoya Get Even
Color: two coats Zoya Sooki, two coats Lynnderella I Don't Mean Rhinestones
Top Coat: one coat Seche Vite
Application: Excellent (out of poor, average, good, excellent)



My wild card base here was Zoya Sooki, a true red creme. I like red and turquoise together, so I had to give this a try. It didn't disappoint! The turquoise glitter really popped against the red background. I have to point out too that I Don't Mean Rhinestones is SO SPARKLY!!!! You know how some glitters are just not really shiny and sparkly? IDMR is NOT like that. It is super shiny and extra sparkly. Love it!


Again, this is two coats. The coverage is very good, I did thinner coats with this base because I wanted it to show through a bit more. You can definitely wear IDMR all by itself with two thick coats or three thinner ones.


Lynnderella I Don't Mean Rhinestones is available at her eBay store. Also, if you haven't seen the announcement, Lynnderella is releasing a new collection soon. It's called Early Halloween Resurrected and looks excellent, as usual. You can check out the announcement here and drool over the new pretties.

I'm confused by the Lynnderella store - are these polishes really $20+ a bottle??

Yes, they are $20. I have purchased other polish for $20-$30 and quite frankly would rather have these. I find them to be worth it.
