2017 Lynnderella Advent Polishes, Part 1!

*Sent for review*

It's the most wonderful time of the year- Lynnderella Advent season! I love Lynnderella's tradition of releasing Advent polishes, it's a fun countdown to Christmas every year. This year she decided to release them a little earlier than the actual day so that if you buy one, you can have it in time to wear on the actual date. First up is Lynnderella 12-6-17 Rose Brûlée. This was actually my Thanksgiving day mani, it felt festive and fun for the day. Rose Brûlée is a gorgeous vampy plum shimmer with brighter pink shimmer. It really glows from within and looks kind of burnt around the edges. Love it!


This is two coats of Rose Brûlée and one layer of top coat. Look at that sexy smolder!



This stunning holographic blue treat is Lynnderella 12-2-17 Over the River. Lynnderella describes this as a "holographic blue microglitter with vivid cyan metallic flakes". It's a really electric shade of blue, and despite the fact that I have many many blue glitters in my collection, this stands out from the crowd thanks to it's brightness and how much the holo flare really pops.


Application for this one was really perfect too. It was so easy to apply and totally opaque in two coats. Could even be a one coater if you do slightly thicker coats than I do. I used two layers of top coat just to accentuate the shine, it is pretty smooth with one layer.




The ultimate in holiday glitter polish, Lynnderella 12-4-17 Hollo-Grammy! is a silver holo nanoglitter with red and green accents, as well as red and green shimmer. It is so festive looking and will definitely be part of my Christmas mani! I know some people like non-traditional holiday colors and that's fine, but I do like a good silver with red and green for the occasion.



This is two coats and one layer of top coat. It is nice and smooth since it's nanoglitter and it was very easy to apply.



Lynnderella 12-8-17 Making MerriMint is a pretty soft mint shimmer with pink holo microglitter accents. This reminds me of salt water taffy or something, it makes me think of mint candy! The pink accents in this are very cute and make it more unique.


This is three thin coats. The first coat seemed pretty sheer, but then by the second coat it really started to build up. I'm wearing this as a full mani right now and only did two coats, just slightly thicker ones than I did in this swatch. One layer of top coat and you're good to go.



Lynnderella brought the festive with this one! Lynnderella 12-10-17 Kissmas Party is a "multiglitter topper made with green, red, silver and gold glitters, holographic microglitter, metallic and matte red lips. Clear base with shifty green shimmer". It's a fun mix of glitter and just perfect as a topper to make any color feel like Christmas.


This is one coat of Kissmas Party over Making MerriMint. It was easy to get a good selection of glitters and a nice even coating of holo microglitter. I didn't get any of the lip glitter in this swatch, but I have one on my thumb right now! The glitters in this lay pretty flat, so I just used one layer of top coat.



Lynnderella 12-12-17 First Night is a great mix of holo microglitter, circle glitter in gold, white, and various blue shades, and beautiful four pointed stars in two different sizes. When layered over a dark color, it really gives the impression of a night sky. The mix of colors in this is very pretty and would look fantastic over a wide variety of base colors. I can really see this over a baby blue creme too.



 This is just one coat of First Night over OPI C.I.A. Color Is Awesome. It was easy to apply and I didn't have to fish for any of the larger glitters. Again, the glitters lay pretty flat, so I just used one layer of top coat.


Lynnderella Advent polishes are available now in her eBay store. If you don't see what you're looking for in the store, you can always email lynnderellalacquer@gmail.com to check on availability.

Lots of Recent Lynnderellas!

*Sent for review*

I'm so behind on blogging! I will be trying to get back on track starting this week, and I'm going to kick it off with a post filled with the latest Lynnderella goodies. First up is Lynnderella Going All the Grey, a beautiful medium grey with aqua holographic nanoglitter and a blue-green shimmer. There aren't a lot of grey shimmers and glitters around, so I like the uniqueness of this one. The blue-green shimmer is pretty prominent in person too, adding an extra bit of interest to the polish.



This was two easy coats and just one layer of top coat. It's shimmer and nanoglitter, so it is pretty smooth upon application. The picture below is kind of fuzzy, but I think you can see the blue green shimmer more in that one.



Lynnderella Sweater Weather is a deep burgundy shimmer with charcoal holographic microglitter. This is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for fall, winter, and even the holidays. It's a bit vampy and plenty sparkly. Very cozy feeling too!



Two easy coats again. It almost could have been one coat, it's quite pigmented. I used one layer of top coat and it was pretty smooth and shiny. The formula was really nice to work with, easy to control.



Lynnderella My Lovely Co-Star is described as "multishimmered silver holographic microglitter with brand new never-seen-before silver holographic four-pointed stars. Clear base and scattered small holographic pastel accents". On it's own, it looks like freshly fallen snow, dotted with silver holo stars and little colored lights buried under the snow. Or maybe I'm just ready for snow and winter 😉.




This is three coats of My Love Co-Star alone. I did test it out over some different base colors and you can see that below, but I think I like it best alone. I used one coat of top coat and it was pretty smooth, it probably would be even better with a second layer.




Lynnderella Cyanara Spirulina is a stunning holographic blue-green microglitter. This is the most beautiful shade of wintergreen. You all know I'm a sucker for green and this is just one of those stand out colors that I will wear again and again.



Two coats and it was lovely to work with! I did use two layers of top coat, as I wanted to really emphasize the shine.



Lynnderella describes Forget-Me-Not Violet as "multishimmered rich violet shimmerella with silver holographic nanoglitter accents and violet microflakes in a violet base". The silver glitter lightens up the violet base and gives it a cooler tone, making it look almost closer to a lavender.



Hate to sound like a broken record, but 2 coats! No issues to report and I used just one layer of top coat.



The last polish in this bunch is Lynnderella Eclair Bleu, a blue shimmer with a hint of violet, holo microglitter and very cool glowing violet iridescent accents. Those violet iridescent pieces really catch your eye in person, especially when the light hits them a certain way.


This is three coats. I think the base of this one is a little more sheer on purpose, to let those cool iridescent glitters show. It's nicely smooth with one coat of top coat.
