It took me months to finally get my hands on one of the rare and elusive Lynnderellas! Snow Angel was one of my top lemmings. I really wanted to try wearing it on its own, even though many others prefer to layer it over a sheer color. Here I'm wearing three coats of it. Some spots are bare and uneven, which I would normally dislike, but it literally looks like snow just fell on my fingertips and I love how natural that looks. There are definitely bare spots in snowfall. This mani looks so delicate, but the glitter was actually rather gritty. It was manageable with a coat of Seche Vite. You can tell that my nails are a little bit stained, but it's actually more noticeable in this picture than it is in person. If I ever wear Snow Angel by itself again, I'll paint my tips white first. I still want more Lynnderellas! I hope I'll have the chance to purchase more! I'm still on the waiting list for two shades that were on backorder.
Now for some Nail Mail!
I found some sweet polishes from Fashion Footing's blog sale. Here is Icing- Tiger's Blood, Maybelline- Gilt Trip and Revlon- Khaki Chrome. Gilt Trip and Khaki Chrome look like vintage gems! They also both appear to be duochromes! Icing- Tiger's Blood has been a lemming of mine for a long time. It looks very similar to Cult Nails- Captivated. I originally wanted Captivated, and when it was unavailable, I tried to find Tiger's Blood without success. Now months later, Captivated is available again (which I purchased ASAP),and now I have Tiger's Blood also! Patience pays off!
HSN had the Deborah Lippmann Footloose collection on clearance. They were selling in duos for about $10 each, which is like $5 a polish. Deborah Lippmann polishes usually go for $16 a pop, so this was a great deal. I got the entire collection! Footloose, Almost Paradise, Dancing in the Sheets, and Let's Hear it for the Boy.
