Connect the Dots

I was finally able to get my hands on one of the Lynnderella’s I’ve been wanting for awhile. Connect the Dots! I’m not a huge fan of her polishes mainly because of the price tag on them. This polish is listed on Ebay for $22 and up. I can’t afford to get addicted to a brand of polish with that kind of price tag. A lot of girls do (and spend even more!) but it’s not in my tiny budget as a stay at home mom.

Buuuut! That’s where Facebook swap groups are awesome! One night I found someone selling a few of her Lynnderella’s. I snatched this one up for a much better resale price of $15. I’m hoping to come across Love, Lace, and Lilacs one day for a good price too. She was also selling that one but someone had faster fingers than I did.

Connect the Dots is packed full of different shapes and sizes of black and white glitter in a shimmery clear base. The shimmer is very subtle. I layered one coat of this over top of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise. 

Image I thought this black and white polish would look good layered over a Turquoise. What color would you layer this over?

Image ImageSince Lynnderella’s creation of this polish, there have been a lot of dupes to come out. I know off the top of my head that Sephora has a glitter topper called Chaotic for around $12. It’s a very close dupe and I’ve almost bought it several times.

Alright, now I need to get off this computer and start coming up with my idea for “Inspired by a Pattern” mani for tomorrows challenge. See ya all tomorrow! 🙂

Snowman

Before I get into my post I’d like to just take a moment to remember all the poor helpless children and adults that were killed in the horrific shooting in Connecticut today. My heart is broken for their parents and families. I know I’m hugging my little J a lot tighter tonight. I can’t even imagine what those parents are going through right now. RIP

It’s almost hard for me to continue with my post after that. I don’t normally get so caught up and attached to events like this. It must be because my baby is so close in age to all of those poor, innocent children.

Well today’s theme is Snowman. My Snowman looks a little angry. Maybe because he’s missing his pipe. 🙂

ImageI used 2 coats of OPI I Have A Herring Problem as my background color. Julep Kate, Vera, Brandt, and Parker make up the snowman and the snow and I used China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise for his fancy scarf.
