Rainbows & Unicorns & Non-Christmas

Hey girls, sorry I'm running late today! Forgot I hadn't scheduled any posts after Christmas Day. For those of you who celebrate, what did you do? What was your favorite gift? I got a couple of helmers and a diamond necklace - I'm a lucky gal!

I'm making up for my lateness in GLITTER today :) You may all know my not so secret love for Lynnderella. She is basically the goddess of glitter, and I finally used her (IMO) greatest creation ever: The Glittering Crowd. Over 100 types of glitter all existing in one bottle = magic.

Anyway, before I get carried away... I did 2 coats of Zoya's Kendal from their new Feel collection as my base coat. Kendal is a purple-gray and the formula was really great on this. I could have gotten away with one coat. It's great at self-leveling and just being perfect!

Then I added two coats of The Glittering Crowd and here's the magic:

Artificial light


Round, square, hex, bar, micro, whatever type of glitter you can imagine is in this baby - and that's why I love it! Each nail was so unique and fun, I couldn't stop staring at my nails! The only qualms people tend to have about Lynnderellas are that the glitters hang off your nail sometimes, the bar glitter sometimes curls up (I had this problem, so it'd look like I had hairy nails), and the glitter can clump together (seen above). However, it's all part of the process. My biggest complaint in the brush:

All of my Lynnderella brushes are nothing if not wonky. Kinda stiff, narrow, always curved to the side. It takes some getting used to but I've figured out how to maneuver them ;)

What do you all think? Pretty awesome, right?
