LynBDesigns The Name is Everything Collection Swatch and Review

**Press Sample**
On this wonderful Monday morning, I get to show you all some beauties from LynBDesigns that I have had for over 2 months!! I've had to keep my mouth shut about them for much longer than that though. It's been so hard!!! (That's what she said... ha! I had to, you know you all were thinking it!) 

LynBDesigns does some amazing fandom type collections, but what I love about her products is she moves at her own pace. She makes products she loves. She takes her time and makes sure she is happy with every bottle. She tries so incredibly hard to make sure they are unique. She doesn't worry about what season it is, or what everyone else is doing. She truly focuses on what is nearest and dearest to her, then hands it over to us and gently whispers "Step into my world. Come join me."

It's a wonderful thing to watch LynBDesigns, as a brand, grow and evolve. With all the fandom collections Jennalyn has done, she had yet to do a Harry Potter collection. I can only imagine how often she was bugged to do one. Well, the day has finally come...However, she got a little carried away. So much so, instead of one giant collection, she split it up into three mini collections. The first of those collections, The Name is Everything Collection, is set to be released on June 19th at 7 pm EST. This collection is inspired by the house names of Hogwarts.
Brave & Adventurous
Brave & Adventurous is described as "a red crelly with matte red, orange, yellow, white, and black glitters".
Shown is three coats of Brave & Adventurous.
Inspired by the Gryffindor house, Brave & Adventurous is bright, fun, and full of character. It is full of glitter, but not difficult to work with at all. It layers beautifully. It is a crelly, even though it seems more jelly like, and is opaque in 3 coats. 

Kindness & Justice

Kindness & Justice is described as "a grey crelly with metallic black, white, silver, and gold glitter, and gold holo glitter".
Shown is three coats of Kindness & Justice.
Inspired by the Hufflepuff house, Kindness & Justice is a subtly strong beauty. Being a grey, this was a front runner for me. Easy to work with, but the glitter tended to huddle on the sides a bit. I had to work them around. Nothing horrible though.

Curiosity & Knowledge

Curiosity & Knowledge is described as "a blue crelly loaded with metallic blue and bronze micro glitter, and matte black and white glitter".
Shown is three coats of Curiosity & Knowledge.
Inspired by the Ravenclaw house, Curiosity & Knowledge is mysterious and deep. It is one of those polishes that makes you want more. There is a depth to the layering that is beautiful. It has a perfect application and formula. It is sure to be a favorite by all.

Greatness & Ambition

Greatness & Ambition is described as "a green crelly with metallic silver, grey, green, red, and purple glitters".
Shown is three coats of Greatness & Ambition.
Inspired by the Slytherin house, Greatness & Ambition is the show-y one of the group. It wants all the attention. It is a lot of fun and full of glitter. About the only thing it is missing is a head full of platinum blonde hair. I'm not a fan of bar glitter, but it is not dominant in this polish. I never had issues with them once. 

B-Sticky bast coat and B-Shiny top coat were used with all swatches.

The Name is Everything Collection is wonderful. It's well rounded and straight to the point. Every polish has a purpose and you can see the inspiration throughout. LynBDesigns had an idea, and she executed it perfectly. I love that these are subtle crellies. They look like jellies when on the nail, but they are clearly crellies with the opaquness. The formulas are perfection!

The Name is Everything Collection will be available Friday, June 19th at 7 pm EST for $8 a piece. The other two collections will be released July 3rd, and July 17th. I will have those swatches up on the blog at the beginning of the week before the release. If you want to see swatches in advance, join the LynB Loves fan group. Trust me, you'll want to. The other two collections are just as wonderful as this one (if not more).

If you're a Harry Potter fan, you need these. These are the most fun house inspired polishes I've seen. Did you snag any in the pre-order? If not, which are you looking forward to most?

I love how you describe LynB as working on what is dear to her and then quietly releases it to the world, one of the things I love most about LynB! While I'm not a Harry Potter fan (IKR!) I do really like Kindness & Justice.

My blogging partner, Terra, is going to lose it over this collection!!

Brave & Adventurous speaks to me.

Jen Sky Walker said...

I'm really jealous you can pull off Kindness and Justice. As much as I love grey polishes, they just don't like me. I really love this mini collection!

acidicice said...

Brave and Adventurous is the stand out for me here and not only because it is inspired by Gryffindor; )

Tracey said...

My daughter would love these, can't wait to show her your post 😊

Bethany"BNailedToPerfection" said...

What an interesting collection! Ravenclaw is my favourite.

I've been seeing swatches of these floating around and I am so pumped about them. I'm not a huge Potter fan but enough of one where I totally need this collection.

Manna's Manis said...

I love the blue one (no surprise there)

Blingfinger said...

Too much going on in these glitters for me but I'm also not Harry Potter fan so maybe that's why I don't get it :). Great swatches!
