LynBDesigns Review

*Polishes in this post were sent for review.  All opinions are my own. 

Hey ladies!  Here is number two of my "I've had these for months but haven't posted them because I suck" reviews.  There will be several more, then the new Zoya collections *squee!*, and then a few more.  I'm tellin ya, I am WAY behind!  Hope you don't get sick of me while I get caught up!  

Today I have some awesomesauce from LynBDesigns.  I actually got to pick these out on my own and these were the ones I was excited to try at the time.  Let me tell you, her shop has grown and is FULL of incredible looking polish now!  If I weren't running low on cash (med bills.  yay!), I would have snagged up plenty between then and now.  Most of these are still available (unlike the Amy's Nail Boutique polishes), but some of them are on clearance right now.  If you like anything, run over to her etsy  to grab them before they are gone!  

First up is Colorful Expletive.  I really didn't know this until Monday night, but this is part of the "retirement home" section (meaning it is going to be gone soon!  eek!).  At first I thought it was the name of the collection and I seriously about lost it.  I was laughing SO HARD because it instantly brought work to mind!  Anyway, Colorful Expletive is a glitter topper that has a mixture of fine holo glitter, holo stars and holo bar/"hair" glitter.  The picture I have doesn't do anything for it, but it is seriously gorgeous!  The stars had to be coaxed into place a little, but I have never had a shaped glitter that didn't need to be.  Other than that, I love it! 

Snowball Fight was one of the winter polishes.  It contains small (tiny, really) red hexes, white glitter of various shapes and sizes, and almost transparent white hexes.  Those were my favorite part! They truly made the "snow" feeling! If you enlarge the picture, you will be able to see those better.  I think this would make a great topper for almost any color!

Foiled Again is another very pretty polish.  I feel like I should swatch it over black now... It contains small silver holo hexes and bar glitter, and a very, very fine glitter that give it an almost frosty finish.  Another good topper!

Next I have the black sheep of the bunch, Percival.  I was really excited for this polish, but I think it may be the only fail of the group.  It has a gorgeous purpleish pink base, but the shimmer makes it kind of frosty and the random diamond glitters just seem out of place.  I don't know.  I'll let you decide about this one.  The formula was great, I just don't know if I like it on me or not!

Last, we have I think is my favorite of the group, Black Tie.  This is a gorgeous black crelly with gold flakes in it.  The effect is really quite subtle, but still elegant.  I think this would be a great polish to go with your LBD!

Overall, I really enjoy LynBDesigns, and I will definitely buy more!  The only "meh" was Percival, and I can't really put my finger on why since it has a good formula.

LynBDesigns are $8 each, and until May 31st (you still have a few days!), you can use the code "WHOISCLARA" for half off your entire order!
