Guest Post - LynBDesigns

I invited the wonderful Jenna, from LynBDesigns, to do a guest post this week! She's one of my favorite indie makers, but she's also a blogger. Since I am always promoting her nail polish, I thought it was about time I help promote her blog!

Hello there, dear readers. I've been working on this review for the better part of a month. It seems like every time I wanted to do it one or more of my nails broke. So prepare yourselves for different nail lengths.

It's been close to a year since I've heard of this indie and I've wanted to try some of her polishes for ages. Strangely I never knew how to order them. I couldn't find her anywhere. Well, she's on Facebook, and that's it. The indie of which I speak is Whimsical Ideas by Pam. She makes such creative polishes, and I love that her cat Kismet is worked into her line. I have four lovelies to show you today, so let's get started.

Peanut Butter and Jelly:

It's the polish that launched a dozen sandwiches. I've never been a fan of PB&J's, but after I got this polish I had a need to eat them. I tended to avoid them because I'm not the biggest fan of jelly, but that's all changed now. Also, please ignore the cat hair. I never seem to get them until it's too late.
This gorgeous polish was great to apply and only took two coats to get full coverage, and look at that color.
I love a good vampy red base and the added rose goldy glitters really make the polish have depth. It creates the perfect jelly sandwich all on it's own.
I just can't get over how much I love the color of this polish, and how great it was to work with. I love that such a simple combination could look so deep and glowy.

On to Peacock Park:
I love a good monochromatic polish, and Peacock Park doesn't disappoint. It's a collection of teal glitters in a teal base.
I honestly thought it wouldn't be opaque in any amount of coats, but it was. I have it as two coats over Sally Hansen Blaze Blue on all but my ring finger. On that I have three coats over nothing. I had the hardest time picking undies for this mani. It looks fantastic over butter LONDON Slapper, but the true blue gave it more depth.
Just a word of warning. The Sally Hansen color I used stained like no other. I don't recommend that blue for undies. I can't wait to try this over Slapper.

Magical Mystery Tour:
How I love thee purple and blue. This again, is a case of simple looking way more complex. When I saw this polish online I was drawn in. I couldn't look away. When I finally got to order it, I was stunned to see how simple it was.
I did two coats over NYC Prince Street which is the perfect color match for undies. I left my left hand to just have Prince Street and there's no difference in color. Magical Mystery Tour even has a subtle shimmer in it's purple base.
I love how the blue glitter just stands out against the purple. I can't get over the complexity.

Lastly Kitty Glitter:
How could I not get one of her polishes inspired by her cat? I love my cats, and I love this color. Of the four, it's my favorite. Also, I'm a sucker for pastel aqua colors.
I did two coats over a cheap polish from Payless called Aqua Island. I do think that this polish would be opaque if you did three decent coats.
This is another polish that looks more complex than it is. It's just a simple light aqua base with silver glitter, and yet it's so scrummy. Yep, that's a mix of yummy and scrumptious.

Overall these were great to work with, and I can't wait to try more. Pam's Spring collection just launched April 24th, and those colors look just as tempting as these.

You can find Pam on Facebook, and order via email.

Happy Polishing!!
