Lynnderella Early Halloween - Nightshade

 Hi lovelies! I have something extra special for today. As you might know Lynnderella recently released a new collection called Early Halloween, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the new shades -- which just happens to be my favorite of the collection! Nightshade is a gorgeous mix of navy and black glitter in different sizes and both hexes and squares, as well as a decent smattering of small purple/indigo hexes, and tons of holo microglitter in a clear base. It applied totally perfectly for me -- no glittering curling on this one! The glitter is dense enough that I think with 3 or 4 careful coats you could probably get it opaque if you wanted (I tested this out on my thumb and it was mostly good at 3 but still a little patchy)  -- but as for me, I went with a base of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blazing Blue, which is a pretty navy blue shimmer. I took tons of pictures trying to capture the amazingness of this polish, so check it out below!

On my nails:
1 coat Orly Bonder
2 coats Sally Hansen Blazing Blue
2 coats Lynnderella Nightshade
1 coat Seche Vite
1 coat OPI Top Coat
1 coat Seche Vite

This one was pretty topcoat hungry, so I had to do what I call a Seche sandwich -- two coats of Seche with regular topcoat in-between to get that glassy finish. But the gorgeous sparkle is so so worth it! Below I have a couple of blurry pics that show the holo really well.

I just adore this polish so much! It has that night sky vibe going on, but with all that black glitter it is just a touch more mysterious -- like a night sky with witches flying across it on their brooms! :) Perfect for Halloween in that sense, and pretty enough to be perfect all year round. Love it.

You can find Lynnderella polishes at her eBay store~

Have a lovely day!♥
