LynBDesigns Giveaway Winner and Two Polishes for Review
Hi there! I've drawn for my LynBDesigns giveaway winner, but I'm afraid you're going to have to wait while I review a couple of fabulous polishes before I announce the lucky gal's name ;) I've got two more polishes from LynBDesigns which Jenna generously provided me for review.
First up is Happy Birthday to You Blue.
Part of LBD's Dr. Suess themed collection (Many Colors of Suess), HBtYB is a shimmery metallic royal blue polish that was difficult as all get out to photograph! lol I'm a big fan of Jenna's polishes and have shopped her etsy store a few times. I've been tempted by HBtYB before but figured I've got around 5 metallic blue polishes in my collection already, why would I need this one? Because it's fabulous! But that fabulousness is super hard to capture on camera.
What you're only catching glimpses of here are the beautiful little sparks of pink and green that show up amongst the more camera-visible gold and silver bits. This polish is truly different from any other metallic blue I have and I can't believe I passed over it so many times in the past!
I finally ended up turning off my brighter lights and photographing HBtYB in a more "room temperature" light, which I think shows of the colors in it a bit better, but still this one is best viewed IRL. Trust me, if you buy it, you won't be disappointed!
Next up, I Was Only Saying Hello is another polish from LBD's Innuendos in Space collection. I've reviewed a couple from this collection already and I have to say this Dr. Who themed collection is my favorite! Jenna's really knocked it out of the park with these! IWOSH is a gorgeous greyed perwinkle crelly base with a mix of silver, white, black and bright blue hexes and squares in varying sizes.
As you know by now, I'm a sucker for this type of polish. The depth you get in these just can't be beat! I did 4 coats of IWOSH with no undies here, although you could definitely layer it over another polish for fewer coats. This was really opaque in 3 coats, but I was having fun with the glitters and couldn't stop there. The formula was nice and I didn't have any trouble with application. In fact, for having some larger sized glitters, IWOSH gave me no fishing issues, which is greatly appreciated!
Ok, ok now on to the main event! The winner of my Am I Ginger? LynBDesigns giveaway is....entry #450 Debra P.! Congratulations! Debra has been emailed and has 48 hours to respond or she forfeits her prize and I redraw.
Thanks so much to everyone who entered and especially to those who shared! I will be having my 100x3 giveaway coming up, hopefully next week, to celebrate 100+ followers on GFC, Bloglovin', AND Facebook! You guys totally rock! I hope you'll all stick around :)
