Lynnderella - Change

Yesterday's Lynnderella - The Telltale Heart, may not have been a me colour. But this one, Change -  it doesn't get anymore me than this!

This was the first Lynnderella polish that I really, really wanted.  I wanted is so bad I made my own version of it here, called Coinage. I love my version so much and its the only polish I now wear on my toes.  Because I love it so much, I was worried that Change may not live up to my expectations.  I had high, very high expectations for Change.  So I left it sitting there, taunting me, sparkling out from my little stash of Lynnderellas.  This week, I decided it was time.  

I pulled out my swatch sticks to find the perfect accompanying colour to wear as undies.  I have a lot of gold polishes, it's my go to shade and the colour of at least 1/4 my stash.  I have every shade of gold - warm and cool tones  - duochrome golds - holographic golds.  I knew I would find the perfect undies for this.  In the end, the perfect undies choice this time was Chanel Peridot.  The fact that Peridot has a duochrome green shift was a perfect match with chartreuse green glitter hexes.


Other the the amazing mix of gold, silver, pewter, copper, bronze and chartreuse glitter, there are two spectacular pieces of glitter in this polish that really make it one of a kind.  The first is the huge silver hexes, as clearly seen on my ring finger above.  The reason I love these so much is because they really do remind me of change, as in the stuff that jangles in your coin purse.  Here in Australia we have very large 50 cent pieces.  They are silver and have angled edges.  This literally feels like I have money on my tips.


The other bits of glitter in this polish that are super duper amazeballs are the huge gold holographic square glitters. On this hand I go one on my thumb, index and middle fingers.  They are actually hard to spot in these photos because the glitter is almost the identical shade to Peridot.  But when the light catches the holo, like on the middle finger above, WOW.   And they are not light on, there are plenty of both the giant silver hexes and the holo squares in this polish.


You can see the massive square glitter in this macro, it just blends in until the light hits it.


Here is the huge silver hex, as well as a good shot that shows the other size glitters in this polish.




I felt like a million dollars wearing this.  I think it was the combo of Chanel Peridot and the rich glitters.  People, this is the polish combo I want to die in!

  9. I've been looking at all your posts over the last few days of the Lynnderella polishes and they've been absolutely gorgeous.... BUT.... all the while I was cringing.... how do you get all that glitter OFF?

    1. It comes off very easy with the foil method. It really does make all the difference. A little cotton square with acetone on it, placed on the nail, then wrapped in foil. I do all ten fingers, and then wait about 3 minutes, then just slide them off. Then I wash my hands with warm soapy water with a nail brush just to get any stubborn bits of my skin.
