Lynnderella Mysterious Ways

This is my first official Lynnderella manicure. I was craving something more feminine and delicate and this fits. This is three coats. Yes, it's very sheer, and I like that!
Unfocused, to capture the holographic goodness.
It is slightly more lavender than these pictures convey.

Thanks for lookin'!

Untried #4: Another $OPI mini + Icing Force of Love

A beautiful teal shimmer from $OPI. Sorry, I don't have the name!

This is really quite pretty and deserves to be
worn on it's own.
But I layered over it two coats of Icing Force of Love,
the DL dupe of Across The Universe.

Thanks for lookin'!

Untried #3: $OPI orange-based red creme mini

I'm glad I'm going through my untrieds. I've discovered some polishes I really like, that I had dismissed in the past. Here is a an orange-based red creme. I love this, especially on shorter nails.
Sorry, I don't have the name!

Untrieds, Day 2: $OPI mini and Nubar 2010

I was pleasanly surprised with this $OPI mini. Sorry, I don't have the name. I threw out the package, not knowing the names aren't on the little bottles. It's such a nice steel-gray blue with some shimmer.
Three coats. This will be a nice base color for
stamping white and silver snowflakes.

Warning: Tip wear and dry cuticles ahead!

Then, I layered Nubar 2010 and mattified it.

Thanks for lookin'!

Trying the untrieds, Day 1.

I feel a little sheepish. I've been accumulating polishes like mad, and now have realized I have 51 untrieds! (and I have 6-7 on the way!) From this point in time, I will not buy any more polish until I've gone through ALL of my untrieds and posted them here. So here is Day 1:
L'Oreal Raven's Dream, WnW fastdry Correction tape

This is 2-3 coats of L'Oreal Raven's Dream (from their recent fall collection). It goes on streaky/patchy like all pale pinks seem to do for me. I don't really know why I bought it because I have so many pale pinks! This is topped with Wet n Wild fastdry Correction Tape. This is a fun glitter. I like the combination of small hex and square glitters. It makes me think of a birthday party.

Thanks for lookin'!
