In this edition of The Swatch Watch and I am featuring a polish from yet another new-to-me indie brand, Lynnderella. I chose to show you this “Lynn” polish first because the name is seasonally appropriate and it was full of colors of the rainbow.
Before I began, I did read up a little on the history of this brand that some call “The Mother of Indies”. And it sounded like they made a few missteps early on. I can imagine there may still be some hurt feelings and people turned off by this brand. Fortunately, I had yet to even hear the word “indie” back then and I only learned of them last year. So they have a clean slate with me and I was excited to pick up a few bottles to try.
Since I couldn’t easily locate the official description for Lynnderella “One Nutty Fruitcake” I will describe it as bright multicolor and black square glitter mix in various sizes in a sheer violet base containing sparkly microglitter. The fact that this polish only contains square glitters makes it unique in my opinion.
I probably tested it over a dozen base polishes before I finally settled on a lavender. Lucky for me I was a winner in the Preen.Me OPI Venice Collection Giveaway on Instagram about 2 weeks ago (at the original time of writing) and the perfect lavender, OPI Purple Palazzo Pants, was one of the three polishes I received.
I thought it would be fun to do an accent nail using Swarovski Crystals in coordinating colors. I attached a 3mm Amethyst, Aquamarine, Dark Moss Green, Fire Opal and Fuchsia with topcoat.
So what do you think of my first Lynnderella? Would you have chosen lavender as the base color? What other colors do you think would have worked? As always, I would love to hear your thoughts!
