Good morning everyone! I hope your new year is going great so far. It’s the last holiday weekend before the kids go back to school and tonight we are going to a Lego exhibit at a local museum! I can’t wait. 🙂 Today I’m showing you two polishes from LynBDesigns: Pliny the Elder and Spot the Cuttlefish (plus a comparison!).
*Programming Note* I had quite a few polishes I wasn’t able to show you in 2015, so I’ll be trying to get those posted over the next couple of weeks.
LynBDesigns Pliny the Elder is a brown based holographic polish with sparkly orange holographic bits thrown in. This is 2 coats:

LynBDesigns Spot the Cuttlefish is definitely a polish that is meant to be layered over another polish. I tried it on its own and my nails looked tobacco stained (no bueno). So, I tried it over Verity Hot Red (press sample). It is a jelly brown holographic polish with gold flakes. Here is 2 coats over Verity Hot Red:

When I was editing these photos, I realized that Pliny the Elder reminded me a lot of LynBDesigns I’m Not Myself You See. Let’s check that out:
Compared to Pliny the Elder, which is more red toned, I’m Not Myself You See is more brown with no extra sparkles. I’m glad I own both!
What do you think of these two polishes? I’m not usually a brown fan, which surprises me how much I like Pliny the Elder. It’s that extra sparkle!

I love the combination of holo with the orange flecks in Pliny the Elder!
I like Spot the Cuttlefish over that red – I love a good sparkle!
Me too! 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous! Pliny has been on my wishlist for a bit, so pretty!
