Lynnderella Mysterious Ways

Tonight's post is going to be crazy quick, which means no Comparison Thursday.  Womp womp!  I've packaged up about 15 packages tonight, including all of the prizes that I sponsored for my giveaway (woot woot!), and I still have a lot to do before bed!  Although, I will let you guys in on a little secret...  I'm finally producing my own polishes for sale to the masses!!!  You'll need to follow my Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers Facebook page to order!

Ok, so let's take a look at Lynnderella Mysterious Ways over Gelish Cashmere Kind of Girl.

Color: Sheer creamy grey base with silver metallic and holo and white glitters.
Finish: Glitter Crème – glitter in a crème base.

Bottle / Brush: Rectangle bottle – ribbed cap that is a little hard on the hands to open if you have sensitive skin.  The wand is the standard length, but the brush is a little too thin to pick up large / shaped glitter without fishing.  The brush's width is also an issue for spreading.  It doesn't fan out and pretty much requires you to dab polishes that are densely packed with glitter.
Opacity: Low – it requires several coats for opacity, but you'll never really get rid of visible nail line.  Here, however, I wore it as one coat over undies.

Glitter Application: Medium – requires the dab method, but spreads evenly.
Consistency: Medium – applies easily and doesn’t flood the cuticles.
Overall Ease of Application: Easy – applies well without pooling, dragging, streaking, or balding.  Spreads evenly and smoothly.

Stampability: Not designed for stamping.
Dry Time: Medium – dry to the touch with minimal smudging in 3-8 minutes.

Overall Thoughts:  This is is a bit of a fail for me.  Not because of the application of the polish, but the color!  I wanted to love dove greys, but they just don't look that great with my pinkie-red skin tone.  Also, I'm not a huge fan of those giant silver hexes.  Application was easy without too much difficulty in getting the glitters out of the bottle.  I wore this over dove grey Gelish Cashmere Kind of Girl, which also didn't look that great on me.  It's very disappointing, but since I"m a Lynn hoarder, this baby is hanging out in my stash still.  I'm thinking of trying it over another color.  Any suggestions?

You can purchase Lynnderellas at their store here.  Follow their fan-run FacebookTwitter, and IG pages.  I purchased my Gelish from Sally's Beauty Supply, but you can find them much cheaper on Amazon.

    1. Yeah, I'm thinking over white, or sandwiched with a white jelly!

  2. I feel like gray is one of those colors that rarely looks good on anyone haha. But I agree, maybe over white or purple or indigo?
