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! 🙂

Antares

Happy Saturday! Hope you’re all having a great weekend.

Today I have another Northern Star Polish to show you. And my final one for now. That’s right… for now :). I’ll buy more.

This is Antares. It’s made of turquoise, red, and white matte glitters in a clear base. There are also red star glitter but they’re few and far between. I have two coats of Antares over Sinful Colors Snow Me White and out of all of my nails I only have 1 star.

Like I said in my post yesterday, I’ve been on a polish hiatus waiting for a job interview that hasn’t happened yet. I’ve been wearing only light pinks on my nails and it was pretty boring. So instead of layering this glitter over a red or blue polish, I chose white to make it bright and stand out.

And a bottle shot so you can see Antares in all its beauty 🙂

What do you think of this polish? I really like it but I know I’ve said that about all 3 of the Northern Star Polishes I purchased.

You can buy Northern Star Polish by visiting their Etsy page here.

Where’s My Chauffeur?

Welcome to week 2 of my colored weeks challenge! My little guy, Jayden, picked out the color for this week. Of course he chose his favorite of all colors. Blue! So I’ll be providing you with a week full of blue :).

I was in Target yesterday and ran into their Essie display which had the new holiday colors. I’d seen a swatch recently of Where’s My Chauffeur? and knew I had to have it. I’m a sucker for turquoise. 

Check out how pretty this is!

There are a few more polishes I want to get from this collection too. I’m loving the Holiday collections!
