Zoya Julie and Lynnderella Connect to Pretty

It’s been a bit since my last post (my kids got sick on the first day of summer vacation, can you believe the luck?)- so since I’m almost feeling better I decided to share some pictures I took a few weeks ago.  I’ve been great at *taking* photographs- just not at the posting them part!

First up is Zoya Julie, which is part of their Spring 2013 Lovely collection.  Julie is described on the Zoya website as a ‘soft wisteria purple metallic’.  It’s very soft and shimmery!  All photos are 2 coats with no topcoat.

I love Zoya, they’re one of my favorite mainstream polish brands.  As usual the formula was great!

IMG_2826Then I added 1 coat of Lynnderella Connect to Pretty on top!  Connect to Pretty is a Limited Edition Lynnderella, which means they can be bought via auction on Ebay (rather than buy-it-now).  I was lucky enough to win this beautiful glitter bomb in a giveaway, but it does still appear for bidding on Ebay.

IMG_2852I had a *lot* of people grabbing my hands to stare at my nails while wearing this combo!  Though attempting to explain where the glitter came from and it’s cost was a bit difficult for non-polishaholics 🙂  While this particular Lynn may be out of most girl’s price ranges, you can find a lot of beautiful similar colors in her newer collections (I also own Beside Herself, from the new Mixed Feelings collection, and while it’s not the same it gives a similar feeling).

You can purchase Zoya at their website here: http://www.artofbeauty.com/, and Lynnderella polishes can be purchased at lynnderella.com.

  3. This combo is so lively and lovely. Looks wonderful on you. How different is this glitterbomb from “pentimento”? Enough difference to own both? Thanks in advance.

    • Thanks! It’s a TON of fun on- these types of glitter bombs look so great over tons of different colors!!

      Comparing Pentimento and Connect to Pretty… I have both so I’m looking side by side right now. It probably depends on how much you love Lynns, and slight variances (especially since CtP is one you can only grab via auction) 😉 They’re slightly similar, so you might not ‘need’ both, but I do think they’re different enough to have both. CtP has black glitters in it, while P does not (at least as far as I can tell). P also has a predominance of metallic glitters, while CtP is more mattes, and also has neons and shapes. Both will give you a similar ‘feel’ on top of another color though! Beside Herself is also in the same type of ‘family’… it has a MUCH higher amount of white than CtP has, and seems to be larger glitters, but it also contains shapes and matte/neon glitter like CtP. Out of the 3, CtP is my definite favorite 🙂
