LynBDesigns ~ Am I Ginger?



LynBDesigns ~ Am I Ginger?
Orange linear holo

I received Am I Ginger? in a swap because it was on my wish list. The shade of orange wasn’t just what I expected, so I decided to try and layer it as well.

So here’s what I did: I used two coats of Am I Ginger? on its own on my pinkie and my pointer. The middle finger and the ring finger had a layer of Douglas’ “Ready to Go” as underwear. It’s a lovely shimmery orange which covers in one perfect coat. Over that I applied just one coat of Am I Ginger?.

Here’s a flash picture of my little experiment.

  
There’s quite a difference, huh? The holo effect is way wilder when the LynB is on its own, but bear in mind that the nails with underwear only has got one coat of holo goodness.

I did another attempt of a leopard mani, because I do believe that practice makes perfect. I used a lovely cherry red matte polish from Golden Rose: #02. Here’s my final mani with flash:


And here’s a low light picture too, to show the colour difference with and without underwear. I low lights I like it more with underwear but in the sun I like it more alone.


Here are the three polishes I used. On this picture you can see the orange LynB better, and perhaps you understand why I tried to layer it?


So, how was I doing with the leopard spots this time? Please be gentle – it’s still a learning curve, haha!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: The rainbows are really awesome. The colour has an Autumn tone to it that isn’t quite me, but that’s not the polish’s fault!
Buy again: Probably not

    1. Layered is best for this. I'm not sure I'm going to keep it, to be honest.
      And thank you!

  2. I think I like it layered much more. I would love to see what two coats of am I ginger over ready to go would look like but that's four coats of polish. Hmm. On the plus side your leapard spots are getting better.

    1. Ready to Go is actually a one coater, so I could have done an extra layer of I am Ginger, and it would still only have been three coats. I'll try that - just to see what it looks like.
      And thank you, at some point I have to get them right, right? :D

  5. I like the layered version a little more. The leo mani is great on that bright holo orange!
