Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have the latest collection by LynBDesigns to share with you! Spoiler alert - I can't even with this collection! I was thrilled when Jennalyn asked me to swatch for her again as I love her polishes and this collection is no exception. Called Back In The Abbey - this collection is heavily inspired by a fan favorite show, Downton Abbey. I have quite a few pictures to share with you, so let's get started!
First up is I'd Like To Call Her Sybil, a pink jelly filled with pink and gold flakes and scattered holo shimmer. My swatch shows two coats plus Orly Sec N' Dry topcoat. The formula was a little on the thicker side but application was a breeze. Both coats self leveled easily and dried to the touch in about 5 minutes.
Next up is Master George, a green jelly filled with green/gold shifting flakes and holo shimmer. My swatch shows two coats plus Orly Sec N' Dry topcoat. The formula on Master George is similar to I'd Like To Call Her Sybil and was a tad on the thicker side but had a very manageable application. The formula self leveled easily and dried to the touch in about 5 minutes.
Next up is Vain And Silly Flirt, a blue jelly filled with blue holo flakies, and purple and holo shimmer. My swatch shows 2 coats plus Orly Sec N' Dry topcoat. The formula on Vain And Silly Flirt was absolute perfection and application was so easy! The formula self leveled very nicely and dried to the touch in about 5 minutes.
Golden Marigold is a bronze-y jelly base filled with copper/gold shifting flakies and holo shimmer. My swatch shows two coats plus Orly Sec N' Dry topcoat. The application was smooth and buttery on Golden Marigold, no thickness issues whatsoever. It self leveled nicely and dried to the touch in about 5 minutes.
The brown of the collection is Grandpa Donk - a grey leaning brown jelly filled with iridescent purple flakies, copper flakies, and holo shimmer. This polish is so beautiful and unique! My swatch shows 3 coats plus Orly Sec N' Dry topcoat. The formula on Grandpa Donk was more of a traditional jelly formula, still showing VNL on two coats which is why I added a third. It self leveled beautifully and dried to the touch in about 5 minutes.
The final polish I have to show you from the collection is Topsy Turvy World. How do we describe this one? A deep green/gold shifting linear holographic is the best I can do! It reminds me a lot of OPI What Wizardry Is This except with holo and no texture. This color is absolutely stunningly beautiful and that makes Topsy Turvy World my second favorite in the collection. My swatch shows 2 easy coats plus Orly Sec N' Dry topcoat. The formula was complete perfection. It applied like a dream and self leveled nicely.
