Lynnderella Mercury's Rainbow

For my birthday, I asked for a gift certificate to Llarowe so I could get some more Lynnderella polishes.  Sadly I didn't get it, but I did get cash, so I put it to use.  Mercury's Rainbow was one that I had been eyeing because of it's micro holographic glitter paired with medium hexagonal holographic (rainbow reflecting really) glitter.  I thought this was a black base but it's not - it's more of a watery grey.  At first I was trying the polish on its own but after seeing how sheer it was, I layered it over Sephora Black, my favorite $1 polish ever.


This is a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and CND Air Dry for my top coat.  Over Sephora Black, 2 coats of polish was also used.




Yes, that's some spam there.  You can see that this is a THIRSTY glitter - it just soaks up top coat.  We'll get to that in a minute.  See what I mean about it not being opaque?  Sad panda, but it's still a pretty polish.


In the shade, you can see some good amount of glitter that is just too hard to capture in the sun.


Indoors with the flash and again you can see lots of glitter (which yes, is a pain to get off - use felt instead).


Now, Lynnderella also makes a top coat that she calls Glitter Tamer.  I have no idea what it's made of but I just know that it makes my eyes water, and that doesn't happen with nail polish and my eyes.  It's nose hair burning, eye watering, choking on your spit horrible but it works SO well.


Here is a nail without Glitter Tamer (the watery grey ring finger)
See how you can see the edges of the glitter poking up?


Now a shot of Mercury's Rainbow with Glitter Tamer.
Bad hangnail!  But look how the glitter is smoothed down and sealed- not gritty.  The stuff really works but man does it stink.


Lynnderella is only available through the etailer Llarowe.  Currently, you have to contact Llarowe at the email address lalas.lynn.network@gmail.com in order to get on a shipping list which is sorted in 4 ways, so if you'd like to find out how to order, email that above address.

    1. Thanks! Yeah I try to show many different options to wear polishes like this - normally I'd show it over white but I just didn't feel like the white base would look good with the grey base of this polish.

  4. this was the Lynnderella I was most looking forward to. I was really surprised that it was so sheer. It definitely needs a base beneath and it looks AWESOME on you!! I love it over the black.

    1. Aww thanks! Yeah the blog that I originally saw it on did NOT say it was layered, so I was really disappointed when I saw it was sheer. However, I'm loving my cheap black polish that's opaque in one coat, so I'm not as frustrated when it's time to wear this pretty.

    1. Definitely love glitter too - this one is not as popular as other Lynnderellas so you may be able to purchase it next time Llarowe offers it!

  6. I like it over the black polish - I keep seeing a lot of Lynnderella stuff of late. Interested in the glitter tamer too, but not so much the eye watering!

    1. Yeah, we've joked that "frankening" is to 2012 as crackle polish was to 2011... seems like a lot of little "indie" brands are popping up! I know Lynnderella has been around for awhile, but now that it's made more available through LLarowe, people are having better access to it.

      Glitter Tamer is AMAZING but yeah it literally stings my eyes, and I've never had a product do that before. Just use it in a well ventilated area, like a large room, preferably next to an open window. Be careful around fans as a fan can mess up your polish if it's pointed at your nails (smears).

    1. Yeah :[ I suffered a break and just hacked them all off. It takes about one month for my nails to grow back to a good length. Normally I cut them even shorter than this but because I hate having to wait a WHOLE month, I cut them down and then went to a nail tech to have them shaped.

    2. I just got a tear right in the middle of my dominant index finger last night! :(
      I am using the Orly Nail Rescue on it so I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed that it holds because my nails grow SO SLOW!!

    3. OW yeah, my dominant index finger is normally the first to break as well - I have to stop using my nails as tools!
