Swatches of Pretty Stuff

Hello gentle readers.

Happy Monday. It is a gorgeous day here in Prescott, Arizona. It is clear as a bell, sunny and warming up very nicely. Should top out around the low sixties. But it feels warmer than that...

Anyhoozle, the reason why I am here right now is to show you two gorgeous glitter polishes. I received these as a prize in a recent giveaway given by Mary at Body and Soul. They are frankens made by Lynderella (sorry, I don't have a link to her) a very talented gal with the add a little of this to a little of that and shake, shake, shake.

I present The Glittering Crowd and Snow Angel. Two pretty, pretty layering glitters. All pictures are clickable to enlarge, if you are so inclined.

First to the plate, The Glittering Crowd. Many different glitter components and flakies in a clear base.

 No base coat, no top coat, one coat with an extra on my index finger.

 Check out those big purple flakies! They are almost sheets of shiny, sparkly wonderful.

 Sooo many pretty colours...

 Blinded my poor camera with the light.

A bottle close up of the chunky, sparkly, yummy goodness.

This glitter bomb is packed with all kinds of delicious, sparkly, shiny stuff. Hex sequins, round, square, bar, even big flakies. This isn't the easiest stuff to apply, but it isn't too bad, either. It didn't fight me, I just had to work for it a little. I need to try this over dark colours... 

Next up is Snow Angel.A whitish base packed with cold, white glitter. This looks like a Winter snowstorm on my nails. It is really lovely. The texture of the base is a little different. It feels... Kind of grainy-ish? But not really grainy. It is hard to describe. It isn't bad, it is just different than what I am used to.

 One coat on index and ring and two on middle and pinkie. No base or top coats. 

So icy. 

Better on my nails than on my driveway, tho! lol


This polish is delightfully shivery. I could see this as part of a Winter manicure, around Christmas or on my nails in the Dog Days, when it is hot, humid and miserable and I need a nice little cool down.

So, what do you think of these lovelies?

Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great day and may your polish never bubble.
