LynBDesigns Roommate Agreement Collection Swatches and Review

**The product in this post was provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
**WARNING PICTURE AND GIF HEAVY**

I couldn't be more excited about today's LynBDesigns post! When Jennalyn told me she was doing a Big Bang Theory inspired collection, I admit, I went through more emotions than I probably should have.

I've got the entire twelve piece Roommate Agreement Collection to show you all as well as the special LE that will be available as a GWP (gift with purchase) during the release starting on Friday at noon. This is going to be a long one so grab a cup of coffee or go to the bathroom and prepare yourself for a fun ride!


Catatonic Ladybugs is inspired by a scene in The Jiminy Conjecture episode with Raj and Sheldon. When Sheldon points out to Raj that ladybugs must render him catatonic because of the fact that insects and women frighten him, you really get a feel for Raj's anxiety with a twist of humor.
It is a bright, tomato red jelly base filled with matte black hexes and dots in different sizes.
Shown is two coats with top coat.
Catatonic Ladybugs applied smoothly. I had no problems getting glitter out. In fact, I found myself putting some back so it wasn't overwhelming. The jelly base is perfectly squishy and wonderful!!
$8

Code Name Froot Loops is inspired by an ongoing joke between the astronauts and Howard that originated in The Friendship Contraction episode. They call him Froot Loops after a video conference from his home goes awry after his loud-mouth mother interrupts to tell him that his Froot Loops are getting soggy.
It is a light pink jelly filled with iridescent micro flakies that shift from blue to purple to pink, and matte hexes in yellow, hot pink, purple, and blue.
Shown is three coats with top coat.
Application was flawless and zero clean up was needed. I only had to tap back a couple hexes that wanted to hang out over the tip of my nail. Such a fun and playful polish!
$8

Ohh, It's A Tiara is inspired by one of my all time favorite BBT scenes in The Shiny Trinket Maneuver episode! Seriously, even my husband knows that when it's on, he pauses it and calls me in so I can watch it. Sheldon is trying to make something up to Amy, so he buys her a tiara. Amy's reaction is perfect and makes me laugh every time!
It is a silver shimmer base filled with linear holographic as well as silver holographic and iridescent glitter.
Shown is three coats with top coat.
Ohh, It's A Tiara surprised me. I'm not usually a fan of shimmer based polishes with glitter (the thinness of the base with the thickness of the glitter always seems to be off for me), but Jennalyn did a phenomenal job with it.
$10

Fun With Flags is inspired by Sheldon's video podcast of the same name first introduced to us in The Beta Test Initiation. The videos are hilariously awkward and make me wish I could really subscribe to his channel.
It is a wonderfully squishy teal jelly with purple, white, lime green, and teal hexes in different sizes and scattered with small glass fleck.
Shown is two coats with top coat.
Fun With Flags is perfection. Jennalyn knows how to make a good jelly. No issues fishing for glitter or any issues.
$8

Sing Soft Kitty is inspired by the only thing that will comfort Sheldon when he's not feeling well, the song that his mother would sing to him when he was little. It was first introduced to audiences in The Pancake Batter Anomaly.
It is a clear based glitter topper filled with gunmetal and silver micro flakes, matte pink and white hexes in different sizes, large matte black dots, and cat shaped glitter in pink and cream. Yes, I said cat shaped glitter!!
Shown is one coat over a nude with top coat.
Sing Soft Kitty applied well, but I had to fish for the large dots and cat shaped glitter with a toothpick. I don't care, it's worth it. It's so much fun and different! And we all know several people in the nail polish community are very partial to cats!

Whimsically Inventive is from a scene in The Cooper/Kripke Inversion episode where Sheldon is putting up a front that him and Amy are intimate in order to have the upper hand on Kripke. Sheldon asks Leonard to tell Kripke, if he should ask, that coitus with Amy is "frequent, intense, and whimsically inventive". (So sad I couldn't find photos or clips from the actual scene so enjoy these from the same episode!)
It is a lavender, shimmer-based, linear holographic polish with a touch of golden shimmer and small iridescent flakes scattered throughout.
Shown is three coats with top coat.
Whimsically Inventive is stunning. I've worn it several times since receiving it. It's one of those purples that absolutely mesmerizes you.
$10

Perpetual Motion Squad is inspired by the name of their Physics Bowl name in The Bat Jar Conjecture episode. It's full of hilarity and embarrassment all at the same time.
It is a unique jelly that seems to be a wonderful shade somewhere between terra cotta and brick red. It is filled with iridescent flakes that shift from pink to purple to blue and yellow to orange.
Shown is three coats with top coat.
Perpetual Motion Squad had a great application, and the only issue I had was having to tap back flakes that tried to escape off the edge of my nail. That's not really even an issue though. It's stunning and photos do not do this polish justice.
$8

Moisture Induced Glitter Clump is inspired by a phrase Sheldon says in The Work Song Nanocluster episode. It's the episode where Penny starts and stops making her Penny Blossom flower barrettes. Sheldon, Leonard, and Howard are bantering back and forth trying to figure out how to better her productivity and Sheldon blurts out "To start with, she's got a terrible problem with moisture induced glitter clump.". (Again, I couldn't find direct photos or clips of the scene, but here are some from the same episode.)
It is a clear based glitter topper with matte, small, square glitter in yellow, turquoise, pink, and purple and filled with fine holographic particles.
Shown is one coat over a nude with top coat.
Moisture Induced Glitter Clump is perfection in a bottle! Such a great combination of colors and so very versatile.

We're Lost Boys is inspired by the goth bar scene in The Gothowitz Deviation episode. Howard is trying to convince Raj to act more goth and explains they are supposed to be lost boys.
It is a black jelly filled with silver flakes, purple to blue iridescent flakes, and yellow to orange iridescent flakes.
Shown is three coats with top coat.
We're Lost Boys is a wonderful alternative to a plain black creme. It would be one of those polishes I would recommend to anyone as a secondary staple.
$8

Resplendent Like the Noon Day Sun is inspired by a line drunken Raj says in The Griffin Equivalency episode. This was from season two when Raj still needed alcohol to help him talk to women and he showed up to Penny's door and blurted that line out trying to hit on her. (Another one I could find direct photos or videos of. So sad.)
It is a pale, pink-leaning, peach crelly filled with metallic red glitter, matte yellow dots, matte white triangles, and scattered with a hidden gold iridescent shimmer.
Shown is two coats with top coat.
Resplendent Like the Noon Day Sun had a perfect formula, stunning color, and I didn't have to fish for the triangles and circles! A win-win-win in my book!!

Hot for Circles is inspired by another one of Sheldon's lines, this time from The Psychic Vortex episode. Howard and Leonard have gone off on a double date and left Raj and Sheldon to fend for themselves for the night. Raj doesn't want to help Sheldon with his plans, so Sheldon tries to introduce his imaginary world of Flatland to Raj. Apparently the girls there are hot for circles, as he tells Raj to tell them that he is, in fact, a circle.
It is a bright blue jelly filled with metallic blue micro flakes, and dot glitter in several sizes and colors.
Shown is two coats with top coat.
The same perfect squishy jelly type base as Fun With Flags, but with more glitter throughout. I'd try to pick a fave between the two, but that'd be too hard.
$8

Your Ken Can Kiss My Barbie is inspired by interaction between Penny and Sheldon in The Panty PiƱata Polarization episode. Penny is messing with Sheldon's need for consistency and it's a line she ends up blurting out in the middle of their feisty banter.
It is a magenta linear holographic polish with black and silver glitter in different shapes and sizes, scattered with purple to pink iridescent flakes, and silver micro flakes.
Shown is three coats with top coat.
Your Ken Can Kiss My Barbie has an incredibly smooth application, especially for there being so much glitter in it. I can't stop wearing this. It's almost an obsession. You need this polish!
$10

Lastly, Your Ken Can Kiss My Barbie with flash.

Last, but not least is the limited edition gift with purchase that will go along with the Roommate Agreement Collection.

Thor's Hammer is inspired by a scene in The Bakersfield Expedition episode where the guys have gone off and the girls end up arguing about Thor's Hammer. When the guys get back they can hear the girls yelling about it inside the apartment. They think they're talking about a new nail polish named Thor's Hammer because why would their girls be so interested in comics?
It is a clear based glitter topper filled with a mix of metallic and holographic silver glitter in several shapes and sizes, and micro glitter in metallic and holographic finishes in black, brown, and silver.
Shown is one coat over a nude with top coat.
Thor's Hammer is near and dear to me. Literally minutes after the episode originally aired, I was emailing Jennalyn telling her she HAD to make this polish. She only sold a few bottles, but now it's back as an LE for you all. It is so concentrated you almost don't need any undies. Two to three coats would give you full opacity.
