Lynnderella Friday, Vol. 27! More Valentine's Treats!

*Sent for review*

TGIF!!!! I guess I'm not quite over Christmas vacation yet, because this week seemed kind of rough too! I think I just hate January. It is my least favorite month. Typically we get a few snow days to make January a little more fun, but we haven't even had that yet! But today is Friday and it is a Lynnderella Friday with lots of pretties to see! Let's start with Lynnderella Gold Crush, a new LE with silver holo micro flakes and assorted colors of larger holo flakes. The shimmer in the clear base is a beautiful mix of pink and aqua with teeny yellow flakes. I love the mix of silver with blue and purple, the colors look very pretty together! I like these flakes a lot, they are very smooth and flat, no edges sticking up anywhere, and they catch the light really well.

This is one coat over OPI This Silver's Mine. This can also be worn alone in about three coats. It is easy to apply. I don't know if these are new flakes or something, but they are so cooperative and easy to work with!

Lynnderella just released a special Valentine's Day duo for 2016, nicknamed ValenTwins. The first polish in the duo, Lynnderella Valen-Tiny is described as "a lilac-fuschia holographic microglitter with mini heart accents in an electric blue violet- and pink-shimmered clear base".  The mini hearts are so cute, I love them!!!!! Lynnderella said that she got new mini hearts in a great variety of colors and this polish has red, lavender and magenta pieces. 

This is two coats of Valen-Tiny. It was easy to apply and nicely opaque. The hearts are really nice and flat. They fit even on my tiny nail beds!

The ValenTwins duo also comes with a cute little box of loose nail art glitter. I used a couple different kinds of the glitter mix over Valen-Tiny. I love the huge holographic silver cupid! There were also some huge hearts, large hexes, diamonds, and tons of other cool glitter shapes in the mix.

The second half of the ValenTwins duo is Lynnderella Love the Little Ones. I LOOOOOOVE this one!!!! Love the Little Ones is a glitter topper made with the same adorable new mini hearts as Valen-Tiny, along with larger hearts, circles (yay!), and hex glitter in various sizes, all in the colors of Valentine's Day- red, pink, lavender, and magenta. Lynnderella describes it as "assorted mini hearts accented with old-fashioned “normal” hearts and microglitter in a lilac-shimmered clear base". I describe it as "Valentine's Day in a bottle"!

This is one dabbed coat over OPI In a HoliDaze (still have my Christmas polishes out LOL). Love the Little Ones has lots of glitter pieces, but it was still easy to dab on and squish the pieces into place.

Lynnderella Hollo, I Love You. is another beautiful new LE with those same awesome new mini holographic hearts. I love these new mini hearts so much, I want to coat my body in them, but I suppose I will have to settle for coating my nails. I find them to be so exciting because a lot of glitter shapes, like hearts, don't lay flat on my very small nail beds. These new hearts are perfectly flat and don't stick up at all, it's very exciting to me! Lynnderella says that Hollo, I Love You "is all about holographic mini hearts accented with stars, dots, lightening bolts and microglitter. Pink-shimmered pink tinted base with tiny aqua flakes". I am forever a huge fan of Lynn's glitter toppers. I love coming up with layering combinations and I like seeing that every nail gets a slightly different glitter mix. So I am happy to see this great topper with it's fun mix of glitter! Lightening bolts and mini hearts together? Yes please!!

I dabbed one coat of Hollo, I Love You over Nicole by OPI Tink's in the Pink for this mani. Hollo, I Love You was easy to apply with the dabbing method. This mani makes me happy!!

OK here is a shameful story... Lynnderella MarziPink is a Valentine's Day LE from 2013. It has been living in my untrieds drawer since February of 2013!!! I am so sorry for neglecting you, little glitters!! MarziPink contains pale pink, fuchsia, minty gray, and white satin glitters. It also has pretty pink glitter and shimmer in a clear base. I love how these colors look so delicate and pretty!

To capitalize on the delicate look of MarziPink, I used two coats over OPI I Theodora You, and then topped it all off with a layer of matte top coat. My bottle has been sitting in a drawer for 3 years, but it still had a great consistency and was easy to apply after a good shake!
