Lyn B Designs Swatch and Review!

Hi everyone! I hope you all have been well! I want to congratulate Jen Tesauro again for winning my 300 Follower Giveaway! I hope you love for polishes, Jen! Today I have two polishes from Lyn B Designs to show you. Jenna, the creator behind Lyn B Designs, has a super neat Etsy shop so be sure to check it out. These polishes are $8.50 and are full size.

First up we have This Is Halloween from the "Nightmare Begins" collection! You know I can't pass up a Halloween polish! This Is Halloween really caught my eye because I think it's the prefect color for this time of year. The base is a shimmery maroon with a slight bronze duo chrome. There's also purple and orange glitters. I was afraid that the glitters weren't going to be that noticeable on the nail but they are! They are just the right size to give the polish depth. The purple glitter also apear to be holographic so it adds a little flash to the polish. This Is Halloween is a tiny bit thick but covers evenly in two coats. A top coat is definitely needed because it dies to a semi matte finish. It helps the glitters stand out more as well. I love the overall look of this polish. Very Fall and super vampy!

Then we have Baker Street Boys from the "Baker Street" collection. I love green and I LOVE glitter so this one was an obvious choice! I did two coats of Baker Street Boys over two coats OPI- Don't Talk Bach To Me. The base in BSB is  just slightly tinted green with green shimmer. There's a few types of glitter including black squares, silver holographic bars, as well as green and silver hexes. I wouldn't says this polish could be opaque but it does tint whatever polish you put it over. It's a little thick but the glitter applies evenly. I think it's definitely a cool polish.

What do you all think? There's one thing I want to add. These polish bottles have a very unique shape. The bottom is tiered and the top is quite tall. Compared to an OPI bottle, I want to say it's almost half an inch taller. It fits into my Melmer perfectly though! Have you purchased any polishes from Lyn B Designs before?
