Lynderella Lucky Numbers
Glittterrrr. It took me awhile to decide what base color to use with Lynnderella Lucky Numbers because it has both black and red glitters, as well as a sheer red shimmer base. I didn't want to layer this polish over red or black because you wouldn't be able to appreciate both shades of glitter, so I chose Orly Royal Navy, a beautiful blue jelly! If you look at the closeups you can see the turquoise shimmer in Royal Navy.
Lucky Numbers, like a normal Lynnderella, has all kinds of different shaped glitters in it. Unfortunately, a lot of the bigger glitters in Lynnderella polishes tend to sink to the bottom. I remedied this by letting the polish stand upside down for a little bit, and then shaking it a little bit. Otherwise, the formula was alright, but dried with a lot of texture, even after two coats of topcoat. Pretty, but not nearly as awesome as my favorite Lynn, Very Pretty Vampire.
What I did like about this combo is that it felt very Superman-y to me and from far away had a nice red shimmer on a contrasting base a la Clarins 230. Although of course this is nowhere similar to Unicorn Pee otherwise.
You can purchase Lynnderella polishes from Llarowe's website for $15 a piece once you get on the wishlist list.
