Custom polish - Coinage

Lynderella's latest collection has a polish called Change in it, and I fell in love with it the instant I saw it on her blog.  Unfortunately she doesn't ship internationally, so if you want to get her polishes you have to find someone in the USA that would be willing to buy on your behalf and ship to Australia.

I had someone lined up who kindly offered to arrange it for me, but I missed the opening of her shop by 4 hours and therefore missed out on getting included in the order. DOH! 

So I figured I will pull out all my glitters to see what I could mash together.

I created this custom polish, which I have called Coinage.


I really struggle photographing glitters, so you will see this polish in various lighting and tones as I took photos over two days.  I actually wore this polish for four days, which is like a record for me.  I just loved it that much.  This was three coats, with no underwear.  I was really happy with the opacity.








This polish has 18 different glitters and flakes. There is silver holo hex's in two sizes, gold holo hex's in three sizes, chartreuse coloured hex's, brilliant gold hex's, pale gold hex's, copper hex's, orange hex's, micro glitter in silver, brown, desert sand, copper and cinnamon, and gold, copper and bronze reflecks glitters.  Holey hell that is a lot of glitter in one bottle.  I can't believe I actually had that many gold toned glitters!

I was also gifted a bottle of Gelous to try as a top coat to smooth out glitters.  This mani had a coat of Gelous and a coat of Seche Vite and it was shiny and smooth.  I love Gelous, I can't believe I had never tried it to smooth out glitter polishes. It really does make a difference.  Thank you!!

  4. You should sell your creations! I will be sad because you probably wouldn't be able to ship to the US, but I know that Aussie ladies will be ecstatic to get your goods!

  9. I'm pretty sure that llarowe sells Lynderella polishes (and some other great ones like Hits and Ludurana) and ships to Aus. But I absolutely love your creation, and the name!

    1. All the micro fine ones from TKB trading. The larger ones are actually car flakes from ALSA, google search ALSA sample pack.

    1. No base colour under this, just the straight franken. The micro glitter in it provides good coverage. You can actually still be a bit of visible nail line.

  15. Oh but in what medium did you suspend the glitter? Like a clear nail polish or a suspension base or something similar?

    1. Suspension base, or more specifically 'untinted lacquer based' from Beauty World here in Australia.
