Lynnderella - Snow Angel

A palette cleanser now, after wearing that awesome polish yesterday. Here is Lynnderella Snow Angel.

Snow Angel is a milky white base with translucent white hex glitter of various sizes.  I layered two coats of a coat of Ulta3 Lily White.  I felt a quite bridal wearing this, but also like a had white band-aids on my tips.  I know that sounds really weird, but I'm not used to wearing stark white nails.  It's a bit strange for me.




I don't know if I should have layered this over something other than white.  It's so hard to see the glitters in there.  


Next, I tried a traditional french tip with some Snow Angel glitter tips.  It's kind of hideous, so look away now.  MEH!


Next time I'm going to try layering this over pale pink or blue.  Over white, I'm not a fan.  At least not on me.  Of course it looks amazing on Stef, maybe I need to try it over a less opaque white, something a little more sheer and delicate.

  1. The only way I could wear white is if it's shimmery or glitter. This looks really nice on you! :)

    1. Thanks - I totally agree, white has to be shimmery or glitter, or else it's bleh on me!

  4. As usual, love the Lynderella polishes, especially the french. Than you so much for the tip about Essie's Matte about you, it is so much better the CND's Super Matte (which is really more of a satin than a matte). Wondering if you know any more about the drama's with Lynderella's blog and if the polishes will still be sold through Llarowes shop? I caught wind of the issues too late and there were so many posts I struggled to make head or tails of what is going on, other than it looks like Lynne's blog has shut down.

    1. So glad Matte about you worked out. I think it's a great matte finish.

      I try to avoid the nail board dramas, but I believe Lynnderella removed her blog to regain some creative space after learning of other frankeners attempting to copy her polishes designs. and sell them as cheap alternatives.

      I think it would be difficult to deal with as a creative individual, seeing your hard work copied and sold for someone else's profit.

    2. I agree with your (& her) sentiments. I think Lynne's polishes are a really reasonable price considering they are pretty unique (when you look at the price of some of the other out there - I'm thinking Deborah Lipman's) and absolutely fabulous. I feel for her that it appears people have hijacked what she was doing to try and turn her passion into her career/livelihood - if only we could all enjoy what we do for a living! I wish her well and hope (for her and all of us who appreciate her creativity and ability) that things settle down and she can soon resume a business that makes spectacular polishes!

  5. This is such a pretty combination! I actually love the white and white glitter! How it is subtle.

    I see lynnderella polishes online everywhere, but in terms of retail no in the online sense, where can I find it?

    1. As per Catkins comment below, just check my Lynnderella colour guide for details on how to purchase.

  6. I like the white on white! I think it looks like snow; the name is perfect!

    1. Yes the name is perfect. We don't see snow very often here, so it's pretty on my nails.

  7. Your glitter tip manicure is NOT hideous! I normally avoid glitter because the removal is a beyotch but with all the glitter gradient frenchies I've been seeing, I might have to try it.

    1. Thank you Leah, maybe it's cause it felt a little chunky that I didn't like it. It should have been delicate. I'll blame my rushed crappy application instead!

  8. I still haven't found a good base for Snow angel either... I actually love the french one :)), it looks just like snowflakes...

    1. Thank you, but I think I could have done a much better job on the french. I think I rushed it a bit!

  9. I like the french. It looks almost like you dipped your nails in snowflakes.

    1. Thank you. Either snowflakes, or a bowl of sugar.

  10. I absolutely adore your french! It looks like you dipped your fingers in snow!

    1. Thanks Reece. Imagine if snow stayed on your tips like this!

  11. I had to chuckle to myself here as I was reading everyone's comments because as I scrolled through your photos my immediate thought was "Oh snow dipped finger nails"!!
    For those of you asking about buying the Lynnderella's - check out the link to the colour guide at the top left of this blog. I'm pretty sure there are details there about buying the polishes.

  12. The french gradient tips fascinate me! I love it! I love's like you were just having a snow ball fight. ♥ it.

  13. This is among the top 3 that I want from this brand and can only dream as their just are not enough to go around. Love what you did with the gradient - original - never thought of a look like that one with SA.

  14. Aside from Connect the Dots, THIS is my favorite Lynn. So pretty. Reminds me of fresh snow :)

  15. I think this looks nice on you, but totally understand what you mean by feeling like it is too stark white. I just swatched this on three fingers today over 2 layers of Essie Marshmallow, but felt like I was wearing white out on my nails. I tried it over a few other colors, and my favorites were a very pale pink I mixed myself, and Essie Lapis of Luxury. The Lapis of Luxury was a surprise--Snow Angel looks like puffy white clouds floating through the sky in this combo!
