Lynnderella Boy-Girl Party

How about a little Lynnderella to kick off your week? Lynnderella Boy-Girl Party is a clear base with various shapes and sizes of red, blue, purple and pink glitter, plus a dash of holo thrown in too. There are a ton of shapes in this polish, so I'm sure I'm leaving some out, but from what I can see, there's diamond, square, round, hex and bar glitter. This polish came highly recommended from my friend Tara over at Polishy of Truth. I'm so glad she convinced me to get it because it's such a fun polish!

For this mani, I layered Boy-Girl Party over Pixi Very Violet, a very red-leaning neon purple creme. Very Violet has become one of my favorite layering polishes (Darling Diva Raspberry Kami, anyone?) because it can lean more red or more purple depending on what you layer it with, which makes it pretty versatile. It always photographs way too pink-looking though. *sigh* Still, I don't have anything else like it in my stash and I love how it looks under Boy-Girl Party!




I do have one complaint about the formula for Boy-Girl Party: it has these pesky bar glitters in it that are prone to curling. The red bar glitter didn't give me any trouble, but for some reason it's the pink ones that kept wanting to curl and stick out, so I picked most of them off. I can stand a little grit from glitter, but I hate it when you get prickly glitter that snags and scratches because it sticks out so much.

The pros definitely outweigh the cons on this one though. Yes, Boy-Girl Party is a little tempermental and requires some extra attention while applying, but it's beautiful, so I think that makes it all worth it!

  2. I love BGP sooooooooooooooooooooo much! I wore it over that blue you sent me and it is amazing. I like bar glitter ok but I did keep a pair of old tweezers handy and picked many out! Fortunately, my bottle does not seem to have TOO many in it, which is good!

    1. Thanks for convincing me to get it! :) My bottle didn't seem to have too many either. It was only the pink ones that curled on me, weirdly enough I remember you suggested just plucking them out so that's what I did. Problem solved!
