Hey, folks! I had the exciting opportunity to work with Gloss 48 to share some new polishes from LynBDesigns with you! LynBDesigns created a duo exclusive to Gloss 48 (Human Beans and Whirled Peas) that will be sold alongside two non-exclusives shades (Am I Ginger? and Nightmare Revisited). These go live on Gloss48’s site today! They are also holding a giveaway for you guys, so make sure to read through to the end!
If you don’t already know, Gloss 48 is a really cool website dedicated to beauty, particularly niche beauty brands (such as indie polish)! They offer a lot of discounted sales on awesome brands along with some other neat features- read their about page here. Here’s some additional info direct from Gloss 48:
Gloss48 scours the beauty universe to find the most covetable, innovative, must-have indie brands. We launch a new, featured brand (or two!) every day. Our featured products are available for seven days at a promotional value so that members can give them a try without breaking the bank. We also keep a permanent collection of our favorite products for members to continue to build and replenish their beauty arsenal.
I particularly love the meaning behind the 48 in Gloss48! And it’s not the meaning of life. Or is it? No, that’s 42. 10 points to Slytherin if you know what I’m talking about. And why is google trying to tell me Slytherin isn’t a word? It’s been 17 years since the books came out, I’d think it should qualify as a word by now, Webster! If that’s even your real name!!!
Oops. I got off track. You’re here for polishes, yes? Ahem. Formula-wise, the holos were all the same, not too thick or thin and applied easily & smoothly. Human Beans was a smidge thicker than the holos, but it was still a nicely thin polish overall (most holos are on the thinner side just in general). I used Out The Door top coat for all of the photos. Let’s take a look!
LynBDesigns Human Beans is a gorgeous red with gold flakes. Two coats.
LynBDesigns Whirled Peas is a gold holo shifter. Two coats. I wasn’t sure if I’d like this one from the bottle, but I totally fell in love with it on my nails! It’s such an interesting polish- in some lights, the holo is overwhelming and in others it just sparkles a bit while it’s shifting- so pretty!
I really wish I’d had proper sunlight for these holos but as usual, mother nature didn’t cooperate on my swatching day.
LynBDesigns Am I Ginger? is a reddish orange jelly base with linear holographic sparkle. Two coats. Oranges never really agree with my tastes or skin tone so this one wasn’t my favorite but it’s still a nice polish for any of you who are orange lovers!
LynBDesigns Nightmare Revisited is a fuchsia raspberry jelly linear holographic polish. Two coats. This shade is so gorgeous & right up my alley!
Overall, a great first impression for me, both of Gloss48 and of LynBDesigns! If you want to pick up any of these shades, they go live today in Gloss48’s shop at 11 am! From today until 08/13 the duos will retail for $15 (usually they are $18), so make sure to pick up any you’re wanting while they’re on sale!
