Lynnderella - Mademoiselle Violette de Bleu

First, time to pimp my Nail Art Challenge Giveaway. You can win some Lynnderella polishes just for entering, cause two of the three prizes are random draws.  Aussie girls, so far only three entries, your odds of winning Lynnderella's my never be as good as this!

Now, what does ten layers of nail polish look like?  It looks like this.  It's glassy smooth and it's bullet proof.  I didn't realize I had done ten layers until I counted it all up. But, I think it needed every coat.

This beautiful polish is Lynnderella Mademoiselle Violette de Bleu, or MVdB from now on.  This shade is described as a mixture of royal blue, blue violet, navy, holographic royal blue multi-sized hexagons and squares with a touch of purple and iridescent blue hexagons in a sheer blue-violet base.

Another bottle of glitter perfection, Lynnderella, I bow down to you. I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy.  And people, if you think I'm going a bit over the top, just wait until you get your little hands on a bottle of Lynnderella polish and see for yourself. They truly are the best glitter polishes ever. Period!




You really can see the different shades of blue, as well as the violet and purple hexes.  Just look at how those glitters overlap.  They give it so much depth it's like looking into to deep sparkling pacific ocean.



So this is how I came to ten coats.

1 coat  Nail tek II foundation
2 coats Ulta3 Blue Marlin
2 coats Lynnderella MVdB
2 coats glitter tamer - it was a little rough
2 coats Seche Vite - yep still a little rough after one Seche Vite, so I did two.
1 coat Ulta3 Non-Chip (Australian made version) - added the next day as it was textured again in the morning.

I got a teeny bit of shrinkage on the pinky here, but otherwise it was so smooth.  I really expected it to be an inch thick but, I was surprised how thin it still was.  I guess because I allowed it to dry well between each coat, and I only did thin coats, it never go squishy or dents.

I'm slowly making my way through all my Lynnderellas.  Sorry it's taking so long, but I really need to appreciate each one as a full mani, I can't just swatch these beauties.  

Did you notice I started a colour guide for my Lynnderella swatches too?

  2. So beautiful! I've done 10 layers on one finger before, it was so thick it looked like I had an acrylic nail!

    I did notice your Lynnderella colour guide and I've been trying to figure out how you did that image pop up all afternoon! Like how I can hover over the name of the colour and the picture of it pops up. Could you pretty please link me to the instructions for how to do that? Or point me in the right Google Search direction... :)

    1. I was so surprised that it wasn't like a massive thick acrylic. I think it's cause each coat all dried well.

      My job involves web design and coding, so I just coded something up. But if you google search "css image popup", the first result seems to provide a good example.

  8. I love that you are doing each color in its own post. I also love your color charts. That must have taken so much time to do and it really helps those of us that have to buy them online. Thanks!

    1. Thank you. I know when I polish shopping online that I love seeing all the colours available as swatches in one spot. I just wish I could put them up quicker, but each of these beauties needs its own post and full day (or two/three) to wear.

  9. 10 coats - you must have the patience of a saint waiting for them to dry.
    The finished look is perfect and as stunning as all the rest.
    Thanks for the great color guide.

    1. You are so right. I wore this for two days, and just before I took it off I was washing a dish and about a quarter of my thumb nail lifted and come off in one chunk.
