LynBDesigns Fame Collection

**Some of the product in this post was provided by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own.**

Before my accident, the fantastic Jenna over at LynBDesigns sent me her Fame Collection to swatch and review. Since there are so many pictures, I'm not going to jazz it up with a lot of filler. I had a lot of  fun with this bunch. Onto the fun! 


**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**


LynBDesigns Fame Collection
Left to right: Stardust, Ingenous, Dazzling Light, Painted Lady and Shrieking Violet.




LynBDesigns - Stardust

Stardust is a black base filled with a color shifting shimmer. You get to see hints of red, orange and yellow. It's absolutely gorgeous! It may make you think of fall, but you won't care what season it is. You'll just want it on your nails ASAP! 

There wasn't much of a difference between two and three coats. Definitely safe with two, but if you want just an extra hint of shimmer, go with three. 

Look at the range of color in the light! 

This is three coats of Stardust with Cult Nails Get It On and Wicked Fast base and top coats.


You can see the hint of yellow/gold really well in this picture. 

And the hints of orange show up here.

I couldn't get the red to come out and play for pictures, but this is one beautiful polish!





LynBDesigns - Ingénue

Ingénue is a tinted pearly base filled with a gorgeous color shifting shimmer. Sometimes you get gold sometimes green and sometimes blue. Whichever one you end up with it's always stunning! 

If you're not going to use it as a top coat, minimum of three coats is a must. 

I tried layering it over different colors and it would have worked if I would have had a full sized bottle with a longer brush. The shorter brush on the mini bottle left WAY too many streaks and even though you could tell it would look good if it didn't have the streaks, it didn't need to be shown. It was bad.

This is three coats of Ingénue with Cult Nails Get It On and Wicked Fast base and top coats.

I love Ingénue so much more than I thought I would. I didn't like it until that third coat. It really just completed the look. You can see gold is popping out here.

Hints of green are seen here.


Gold seemed to be the only one I could really photograph. Green and blue didn't want to come out and play this time around. Very disappointing. 





LynBDesigns - Dazzling Lights

Dazzling Lights is a clear base filled orange, gold, copper and yellow glitters of different shapes and sizes. Sounds so simple, but it looks so complex. It's a real beauty. 

One coat is perfect for layering, two coats can go either way depending on if you're ok with some VNL or not and three coats is perfect if you want to wear Dazzling Lights all on it's own.

Love the way the light hits all the different colors. 


Not usually a plain glitter fan, but this is definitely one I could wear on it's own.


Now to see Dazzling Lights layered over some undies.

Left to right: Ulta - Hot Spot, butter LONDON - Trout Pout, OPI - Casino Royale, Pomegranate Nail Lacquer - Autumnesque and Wet n Wild - Megalast - Heatwave.

As seen above from pinky to thumb.

This is one coat of Dazzling Lights over two coats of Ulta - Hot Spot. Hot Spot is a beautiful dark burnt orange with brown undertones. This pairing was great and really made the lighter shades of glitter shine. The darker glitters still pop some color and don't get drowned out. 

This is one coat of Dazzling Lights over two coats of butter LONDON - Trout Pout. Trout Pout is a peachy creme. This pairing didn't go over well with me. It completely fell flat. I thought the contrast of colors would be so wrong it would work and it was just all wrong. 

This is one coat of Dazzling Lights over two coats of OPI - Casino Royale. Casino Royale is a beautiful berry creme. This combination blew me away. You see every single speck of glitter on the nail. Nothing fades into the background. It's a stunning pairing. 

This is one coat of Dazzling Lights over two coats of Pomegranate Nail Lacquer - Autumnesque. Autumnesque is the perfect shade of a fall red, dead, fallen leaf scattered with a gold shimmer. It was as  if they were meant to be together. 

This is one coat of Dazzling Lights over two coats of Wet n Wild - Megalast - Heatwave. Heatwave is a coral that was heavy handed with the orange. Not a bad pairing, just others that made more of an impact on me.




LynBDesigns - Painted Lady

Painted Lady is a beautiful, dusty ocean blue with multiple shapes of glitter in different shades of blue. It's a beautiful polish that surprises you with with so much depth and dimension once it's placed on the nail.

Still some VNL with three coats. You can do fewer thicker coats or you can do several thin coats if you want to have full opacity with Painted Lady on it's own.


This is three coats of Painted Lady with Cult Nails Get It On and Wicked Fast base and top coats.

I have no problem with a little VNL so three coats was perfect for me. 



I absolutely LOVE the specks of the bright blue glitter scattered throughout. Perfect amount of pop!


If you're not a fan of VNL and you want to do several layers to achieve opacity, here are some undies you can use with Painted Lady...

Left to right: SinfulColors - Sweet Nothing, Zoya - BreeziL'Oreal - Now You Sea Me, Cult Nails - Manipulative and NOPI - Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam.

As seen above from pinky to thumb.

This is one coat of Painted Lady over two coats of SinfulColors - Sweet Nothing. Sweet Nothing is the love child color of a cadet blue and teal creme. It's beautiful on it's own, but add Painted Lady and you've taken it to a whole other level. Beautiful together!

This is one coat of Painted Lady over two coats of Zoya - BreeziBreezi is a bright blue creme. This pairing wasn't a bad pairing, but Breezi was a bit too bright for Painted Lady. It definitely needed something a bit more toned down. 

This is one coat of Painted Lady over two coats of L'Oreal - Now You Sea Me. Now You Sea Me is a dusty ocean blue creme. This was the absolute perfect pairing! Full opacity and Now You Sea Me doesn't take anything away from Painted Lady. It lets her shine!! 

This is one coat of Painted Lady over two coats of Cult Nails - Manipulative. Manipulative is a soft blue with a lovely shimmer. Too pale for my liking, but the extra sparkle in Manipulative gave Painted Lady a little something extra. Wouldn't be a go to pairing for me.

This is one coat of Painted Lady over two coats of NOPI - Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam. Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam is a deep, dark teal creme. I was iffy on this pairing at first, but it really grew on me. The dark undie really let the sparkle in Painted Lady just pop. Stunning!




LynBDesigns - Shrieking Violet

Shrieking Violet is a soft purple tinted base filled with glitter in almost every shade of purple you can imagine. It's really quite lovely! This was the one I was most excited about when just looking at the bottles. It was definitely my favorite of the bunch.

One and two coats are wonderful for layering over undies. Three to four coats is perfect if you want to wear it on it's own.

Look at all the different colors of sparkle! 

This is three coats of Shrieking Violet with Cult Nails Get It On and Wicked Fast base and top coats.

Shrieking Violet tended to be a little gritty, so it would be best to top with a thicker top coat like Seche Vite or Gelous.

I wish I would have done one more coat just to get a little more from it, but I'm head over heels for Shrieking Violet. I haven't been this excited about a purple polish in a very long time.


The light seems to catch glitter at any angle. It's so much fun to look at!


Here are some different colors you can use as undies if you choose to layer it...

Left to right: Zoya - KiekoSinfulColors - Jungle Trail, SinfulColors - Verbena, SinfulColors - Easy Going and OPI - Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine!.

As seen above from pinky to thumb.

This is one coat of Shrieking Violet over two coats of Zoya - KiekoKieko is a beautiful berry toned purple creme with red undertones. This was the perfect purple to go with Shrieking Violet. They compliment each other so well.

This is one coat of Shrieking Violet over two coats of SinfulColors - Jungle Trail. Jungle Trail is a greyish taupe creme. I thought pairing it with a grey would be good. Who doesn't love a good grey/purple pairing? But I didn't like this. 

This is one coat of Shrieking Violet over two coats of SinfulColors - Verbena. Verbena is a beautiful blue toned purple creme that is just a few shades darker than lavender. This pairing really brought out some of the purple glitters that might normally be overlooked. I love how all the shades just play off each other. It's like wonderful team work on a tiny nail!

This is one coat of Shrieking Violet over two coats of SinfulColors - Easy Going. Easy Going is a simple classic pale pink creme. This didn't turn out like I expected. So onto the next one.

This is one coat of Shrieking Violet over two coats of OPI - Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine!. Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! Is a deep grey with green undertones. This was a beautiful pairing. You can see every speck of glitter on the nail and not a single one is over shadowed by the base color or by other glitters. 


All of the Fame collection polishes applied beautifully. No pulling, no staining. None of the glitter polishes left bald areas or needed to be dabbed on to ensure full coverage. No sinking or separating in any of the polishes. Jenna takes such care in all of her little lovelies. Each one is so beautiful! I haven't had a single one of her polishes that I didn't love. 

All of LynBDesigns polishes are sold in full sizes for $8 a bottle. She also has specialty listings where you can get minis which end up being $4 per bottle. She also has several other items in her Etsy shop so head over and take a peek.
