Lynnderella "Salad Days"

Happy Tuesday.

Today I have a Lynnderella to share. I do not have many of her polishes, because purchasing them, in the past, from various shops via "lotteries" and "wishlist", have always been a "bit much" in my opinion, so I opted to purchase them from blogger blog sales and other nail lovers in various sale groups.

I'm "old skool" in my polish purchases...if it is for sale and available, and I have the money, I want to buy it....easy peasy! Now you can buy them on Ebay for $23 free shipping,whihc is a lot easier than before.

 But  $23 is more than I want to pay for them, so I'll continue to buy them from other polish lovers for less. :)

I did buy, directly from Lynn, "Connect The Dots", from way, way back when her prices were lower, and she was using "round bottles", and sold them directly (first come first serve)... Ahhh those were the easy days. :)

I actually like her polishes, but I just can not always justify the price or the hoops you had to jump thru to buy them. With that being said....on to the manicure!

OPI "Jade Is The New Black" and Lynnderella "Salad Days".

I decided to do 2 coats of the OPI, and then 2 coast of the Lynn.

I loved this manicure! After I let the entire manicure dry a couple minutes, I topped it with 3 coats of top coat. Yeah, 3 was needed to make this smooth for me :)

OPI "Jade Is The New Black" is from OPI's "Hong Kong Collection" in 2010. It is a creamy dark jade green creme. Perfect in 2 coats and the perfect base fr a green manicure.

Lynnderella "Salad Days" is a an explosion of everything you would find in a salad. Greens, reds, purples, oranges, golds...I love it!  This is from her "Sweet Somethings for a Summer Solstice Collection" in 2012.

"Salad Days. Garden variety: tender lettuces, herbs, radishes, tomatoes, rapscallions and carrot chiffonade. A young, bright green with dressing on the side. The expression originated in Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra, when Cleopatra is regretting her youthful dalliances with Julius Caesar and says, “...My salad days... When I was green in judgment, cold in blood...”  Clear base."

Here are some pics in indirect light...

I love it! I love it!...and did I tell you I love it! LOL!

Keep It Sweet!

Pin It!

That polish is perfectly named. It does look like salad as a glitter. Pretty though it is, I can't justify that price point for any polish.
