LynBDesigns ~ So Changeable & Colorful Expletive

LynBDesigns ~ So Changeable & Colorful Expletive

I don’t own many indie polishes. I’ve come across some pretty bad indies and that’s why I’m a bit suspicious about them. I often don’t think the quality matches the price tag. At all. And, knowing I can get lots of groovy polishes at half the price and sometimes even one third of the price, well, that makes me somewhat picky. Indie doesn’t always mean quality – sometimes it just means amateur.

But once in a while it’s nice to try something new, so when Lyn from LynBDesigns had a sale, I decided to give her very pretty glitters a go.

First, here’s So Changeable. It is a blue base with some colour shifting ability, mainly blue to purple, and tons of blue fine glitter. The colour shift doesn’t show much on the nail though, so the polish looks mainly blue when worn.

The quality surprised me a lot, in the good way. This actually feels like a real polish, and not just a lumpy mess of glitter tossed into a bottle of top coat. The first layer was a bit streaky, but the second layer evened out the imperfections completely. And man, can this baby shine! It’s a beautiful blue glittery polish indeed.

Here’s what two coats and no top coat look like:

And here’s a daylight picture for you. Still no sun!

‘Tis pretty, isn’t it?

Now onto a polish I’ve been drooling over since I first spied it on another blog. I’m talking about LynBDesigns Colorful Expletive, a clear based all silver holographic polish. It has micro glitter, small glitter, glitter shreds, and even silver holographic stars. Sounds like my kind of glitter, doesn’t it? I think it does.

I sponged glitter on the tips, and it wasn’t necessary to fish for the stars, in fact, I had to brush some of them back in the bottle! I only wanted one star on each nail, and three on the thumbnails. Drying time was fast for both of the polishes. Nice bonus!

One generous coat of Poshé top coat, and my mani was done:

Here’s a pic from another angle:

I really like this, there’s a little bit of everything that I like in this mani. I’m really happy that I bought these polishes and gave another indie a try.

  1. I haven't heard of this brand but both polishes look like they were made for you :-)

    1. I wish they were, that would have made them even more special than they already are :) I really like them :)

  2. That blue is gorgeous - could come and live with me no problem at all LOL
    And I like the addition of the glitters too!
    Beautiful mani!

    1. I think I'll let the blue stay with me for a wee bit longer :D
      Thank you sooo much! :)

    1. I agree. It's a shade of blue I own a lot of but none quite like this :)

  4. Cute mani! The silver/blue combo is really pretty! :-)
