Hello Berry Patch! Sorry this is coming to you so late, but I had some poor time management due to Halloween celebrations, haha But I have been wearing a lovely polish made by my last indie interviewee – Lyn B Designs. It was the perfect color for the month of October because not only is it orange-y, it also comes from a Halloween themed collection.
So I started with two layers of Lyn B Designs Shadow on the Moon, from the Nightmare Begins collection (based on the Nightmare Before Christmas). I have had a bit of a hard time trying to accurately describe this color. I would describe it as kind of a dusty orange, but here is the description from the Etsy shop: “A sheer darkened red base with pale pink and pale orange small hexes, microfine silver holographic glitter, and itty bitty gold hexes”. And those holographic glitters really do give this polish something special. But I wanted to up the Halloween-ness of this mani, so I used Zoya’s Raven (a black creme) to add some spiderweb accents. I’m not super happy with the spiderwebs because I just didn’t have a nail art brush thin enough to create lines as thin as I would have liked. And then I topped everything off with a coat of Seche Vite.
While this color is very unique, I’m not sure it’s one I would have thought to buy on my own. I love the holographic aspect of it, but orange just isn’t really my color. And unfortunately for me, this isn’t a very long wearing glitter. But the second day, I was already getting chips :/ But if you are the type of person who loves to change their polish often, this won’t be a problem. It applies nicely and I didn’t have to do any fishing for glitter, which is a big plus. One of the other things I really loved about Lyn B Design polishes, is the bottles! They are such a unique shape, it really makes them stand out from other indie polishes. Now if you would like to own one of these cool polishes then enter through the rafflecoptor app below
