I have a few things to say before I start this post, and the first is, please don't be too sad when you see my *super* short nails, I had a little break two days before Christmas, and I don't even know how it happened, my peter pointer on my left hand decided to crack in a diagonal from the tip to near enough the nail bed, so there was no saving it, and I like my nails to be all the same length so they all got filed down but, and my previous mani was ruined...... but *bright side* this mani was my way of cheering myself up.
Following from that, I have for you something very special......... my first Lynnderella!!! These polishes had been on my radar for a while but I tried not to look at them too much as Lynn sold them on her blog, they were gone in lightning speed, and also she did not ship internationally, so I kept them in the sidelines as not to make myself too sad that I couldn't get them.
Then the ever wonderful, multi tasking Llarowe decided she didn't have quite enough to do (joke Leah Ann :p), and made the decision to start selling Lynnderellas in December. The first, and second I believe, shipments of these were gone in a microsecond, but she should be getting more in January, so keep an eye on her Facebook for the announcement of this......
As you may or may not know, Leah Ann held a swatching contest recently, where 11 ladies would be selected to carry a 'job' out, which would be swatching and reviewing all the existing and new lines Llarowe carried, or will carry,........... sounds unreal, I know, which is why I could not believe when I was chosen as one of the finalists, never mind one of the 11 official swatchers as there were many many entries.
I was chosen for a-england, Ozotic and Lynderella polishes, and I have said it before but I will say it again, thank you, thank you, thank you to Leah Ann for this opportunity, she has no idea just how much it means to me to be chosen, and I am sure the others feel the same.
Anyway, I blame the festive season for all my gushing, so before I go off again, back to the polish.......
I was still looking for something to tie in with my Mums Christmas theme of red and gold, so when I looked at the Lynderella polishes Leah Ann had sent me, Change seemed a great choice.
Change is from the Funny Money Collection and is described below -
Change. is about more than the coins under the sofa cushions. Change is gold, silver, pewter, copper, bronze glitter with flecks of holographic gold with multi-coloured accents in a very sparkly gold base.
For my red, I decided to stick with Perceval, so here is 1 coat of the Knight, 1 of Perceval, 1 of Change and 1 thickish coat of the Shield (which I am pleased to report made this polish smooth and shiny)
I would suggest clicking on these pictures to enlarge them so you get the full glory of all the different colours, sizes and shapes of glitter in Change.
I will bring Change out again to show you alone at some point too, as it looks amazing after a few layers but how do you like it over Perceval, it certainly fit the theme I was going for.......
Thank you for looking <3
The Lynnderella polish was sent to me for review.
