I’m Back! Above the Curve Caty Perrywinkle and Lynnderella Blue Rouge Gradient
Hi guys! I never really updated officially on the blog, but I’m sure you were able to guess that I took an extended break from blogging. I still update on my Facebook page occasionally- which I think most people follow- but I apologize for never explaining that here as well. But I’m back now! I’ve missed blogging more than I thought I would. I actually planned to return almost a month ago, but my camera cord went missing- so the pictures in this post are about a month old now!
I’m planning on taking things slow initially- I’m going to make an effort to post regularly to keep myself on track, but I won’t be posting daily like many bloggers are able to do. I have a few reviews I’ve been incredibly late about posting (not polish, but polish/beauty related), so I’m going to do those this week, and then try and jump back in! Let me know what you’d like to see- right now my plan is to mainly do small, quick posts on whatever I’m wearing, but I’m open to suggestions and requests for sure!
This mani uses 2 of my very favorite polishes, Above the Curve Caty Perrywinkle and Lynnderella Blue Rouge. Even though both are recent purchases, they’re towards the top of my favorite list. I happened to have them sitting on my desk together and realized how perfect they would look as a pairing!
First is 2 coats of Above the Curve’s Caty Perrywinkle alone. Periwinkle is one of my favorite colors, so I was SUPER excited when Shaun and Angel debuted this gorgeous polish a few months ago. Caty Perrywinkle is a holographic periwinkle polish. It applied wonderfully, and outside in the sun it was much more holographic than my picture is showing. It’s definitely not an in-your-face holo, but it adds a gorgeous sparkle to a beautiful color.
Lynnderella’s Blue Rouge is actually a lot more opaque than people realize- you can have full coverage in 2 coats easily. Because of this I opted to do a glitter gradiant with Caty Perrywinkle, so that it wouldn’t be completely covered. I dabbed Blue Rouge around the cuticle area of my nails towards the middle, and then added a second coat and drug a tiny bit downward on each side. This is one of my very favorite Lynnderella polishes ever- it’s absolutely worth the splurge! It filled with smaller periwinkle and lilac glitters, and very fine pink glitter. Gorgeous!
I highly recommend both of these beauties! Here’s where you can find both:
Above the Curve: Follow their Facebook Page for updates, and purchase via their Etsy Store or Big Cartel Store– $9 (right now Caty Perrywinkle is only available via Big Cartel)
Lynnderella: Follow the Love Lynnderella Facebook page for polish updates, and buy via Lynnderella’s Ebay Store– $20
I’m excited to be back! I hope you guys liked my first return post as much as I did- I STILL love this mani! ❤
Beautiful! Glad you’re back, I missed you! 🙂
