This is the base I used - Julep Nora. It's one of the suedes that came out in late 2012 - it's a silvery lilac shade that is gorgeous on its own, but I felt it made the perfect undies for Early Halloween!
Here's the bottle shot of Early Halloween! It's full of mostly dark purple glitters, but also orange bars and squares, green hexes, silver stars, moons and diamonds, and a few random yellow daisies.
I was so excited to get my first two Lynns that I took a picture of the name on the side lol. I know there has been a lot of drama about Lynn in the polish community, but I try not to give any of that too much weight. I buy polishes for the polishes and pretty much try to ignore the rest.
I layered 2ish coats of Early Halloween over Julep Nora. I topped with 2 coats of Seche Vite.
In short, no! Yes, the polish was gorgeous. I loved the random mix of glitters and the overall look of the mani. But, the formula was difficult. I noticed that the base seemed to be too thin for all these heavy glitters. It felt almost more like a regular polish base than a suspension base that heavy glitters like this should be in. So I had a hard time getting a lot of glitter on the brush - I was left to use the "dabbing" method with what glitters I could get on the brush. It ended up looking fine but to me, it felt like too much work. Especially with a price so high!
I would buy more Lynns if the colors REALLY impressed me, but probably only if they were on sale. I just can't justify spending that much on a polish if the formula is not going to be completely perfect.
What do you think of Lynnderella's polishes? Do you own any? What do you like/not like about them? I'd love to hear below! <3
