Lynnderella Sassy Kitty.... MEOW!

This gif says everything about this polish and its amazing name.

I layered a sparse and easy coat of Lynnderella Sassy Kitty (Limited Edition) over two coats of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer We Saved the World, I Say We Party (original release). I love this combination because it's totally unexpected and really fun. I normally have an aversion to matte glitter but it works so well here in triange form with the glittery holographic base. Such fun, much sass.

Sassy Kitty is Limited Edition and available on eBay. I believe it is still available so keep an eye out for it.

MAC Palette Quad - Streets Ahead Style!

Starting at the top left corner and going clockwise the colours are as follows: Medallions, Trax, Raving Mad,  and Melt my Heart. Trax is absolutely my favourite MAC eye shadow and is the only one that is still available. Melt my Heart is still available in the Melt my Heart quad, though. There are lots of comparable shades even at MAC for the discontinued colours. What are some of your favorite MAC shadows? What would be in your quad if you could make one?

Zoya Yuna + OCC Ripley + Takko Curiouser & Curiouser

Please excuse the insane vice-grip I have on the polish bottle in these pictures. I was taking the pictures myself and was trying desperately for all of them to not turn out as blurry messes.

Vice grip aside, this was a super cool almost grunge-y like manicure. Definitely different from what I usually gravitate toward, for sure.

I always liked the look of Yuna since seeing swatches when the collection originally came out. As for Ripley, I love the nod to the Alien movies and it's a pretty awesome metallic olive green. And the Takko on my thumb is fun too - a charcoal holo with some green to it.

Lynnderella Candy Fluff

Dainty, dainty, dainty. Lynnderella Candy Fluff (Limted Edition) is an amazing dainty and ethereal beauty of a polish. The base is shimmery pink and translucent with an assortment of pastel and white dots for fun. 

I wore this over one coat of CrowsToes That Boy is a P-I-G which is one of my all time favorite dainty/ethereal polishes. The combination was a no-brainer. I believe I just used one coat of Candy Fluff and then topped it all off with a shimmery top coat by LynBDesigns (the name eludes me). And then of course 2 layers of a fast drying top coat to smooth and seal. I could easily wear a nail look like this every day. It's classy but fun in my humble opinion.

Lynnderella The Juice of the Ruby

BAM! Talk about bright! This combination is a total summer time win.

Lynnderella The Juice of the Ruby (LE) is phenomenal. It's bright and juicy (duh), just look at that macro! I wanted to pair it with something a little different so I used Aliens & Outlaws by Colors by Llarowe which had been in my untried pile forever. The ironic thing about The Juice of the Ruby is that it's a thirsty glitter and needed extra topcoat to smooth. Mmmm. Looking at my nails makes me thirsty for a Passion Tea Lemonade from Starbucks.

Lynnderella Are You Bouquet? over CbL Coconut

I'm just knocking out all these dainty manis out of the park. I think delicate glitters over jelly polishes look so beautiful, especially on shorties/cuties. While CbL Coconut was a really crumby base (way too thick and gloopy), it ended up working thankfully even though it took forever to dry! Lynnderella Are You Bouquet? is probably my new favorite core Lynnderella polish. There is such beautiful complexity in its simplicity. I love the iridescent flecks in the polish in addition to the neon/pastel flower glitters. Gah, I'm gushing over this polish. Get it! It's available on eBay.
