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?
