Zoya Arizona and Lumina Lacquer Pinball Wizard

Quick post again!  Today I paired up two of my untried polishes- Zoya Arizona and Lumina Lacquer Pinball Wizard!

Zoya Arizona is a bright orange cream polish with a glossy finish.  This was part of last year’s summer collection, Beach and Surf (in the Beach portion).  I *adore* the Beach and Surf collections- I think I own a majority of them now with a few exceptions.  Arizona went on well- this is 2 coats with no topcoat (look at that shine without topcoat!).  I did have a few slightly bald areas after 2 coats, but I was rushing my paint job a little bit.  I noticed that the dry time even with no topcoat was pretty fast too- it was relatively touch-dry after taking photos.

Next I added Lumina Lacquer’s Pinball Wizard on top.  This is a glitter polish in a clear base that is chock FULL of matte glitters in every shape, size and color you can imagine.   I used 1 coat on top of Arizona with topcoat.

As I tend to do with most glitter bombs, I used the dabbing method to place a lot of the glitters.  I didn’t have to do any fishing for these large shapes and sizes- they came right up with no effort along with all the other glitters!

LynBDesigns: Jarvis and Five Orange Pips

I have 2 beautiful colors from LynBDesigns to show off today- Jarvis and Five Orange Pips!

Pretty neat bottles, right?

LynBDesigns has a TON of colors to choose from on her etsy site– there’s 95 polish listings!  She also has a lot of other fun things to check out.

So first up: Jarvis!

Jarvis is part of LynBDesigns’ Gender-Benders collection- 14 colors that all share men’s names.  From etsy:  ‘It’s hot pink, it’s color shifting; what’s not to love? Jarvis has a sheer hot pink base and is loaded with color shifting awesomeness. It changes from pink to blue to purple, and on occasion even a little orange.’

You all know I love pink, especially the bright variety- so I was sold!

This is 4 coats of Jarvis alone.  3 would have been sufficient, but without a base coat I had a tiny bit of VNL.

This color is SO gorgeous!  There’s a beautiful light color shift and the application is great.  Even with 4 coats, the polish wasn’t too thick and was very wearable.

This is 2 coats of Jarvis over Cult Nails Nevermore (my go-to black).  WOW!  Look at how pretty!  I love a color-shifting topcoat that can be worn on its own- it makes it very versatile!

The second polish I have to show off from LynBDesigns is Five Orange Pips!

Five Orange Pips is from the Baker Street Collection, which is inspired by Sherlock Holmes.  The description from the store sums up this color perfectly: ‘It’s a collection of orange glitters in a sheer orange base. It has orange holographic glitter, orange hearts, fine orange matte, and glitter that look black in some light, orange in others.’

Even though it’s not part of LynBDesigns’ Halloween collection, this color is absolutely perfect for a holiday look.

This is 2 coats of Five Orange Pips over Sally Hansen’s Ivory Skull (one of the new Fall Complete Manicure colors; a plain white).

This was an easy color to work with- the only hard part was (as expected) the cute orange hearts- but they didn’t require too much effort to get them to come out and play!  The white in these photos really shows off the orange jelly of Five Orange Pips.

This is my favorite combo- 2 coats of Five Orange Pips over Cult Nails Nevermore.  Does this scream Halloween or what?!

I really, really loved these 2 polishes.  Both were super easy to work with and covered nicely- and most importantly, they both looked so very beautiful!  I play on getting a lot of use out of Five Orange Pips this fall!

LynBDesigns is currently offering a Buy Two, Get One Free sale (as of 9/19)!  Just write a note requesting which color you would like as your free choice.

These polishes and more can be found on LynBDesign’s Etsy store for $8.50 each and unless my eyes deceive me- shipping is free!  Which makes these a great deal for some beautiful indie polishes 🙂

Be sure to check out LynBDesign’s Facebook page for new colors and updates.  She has a pretty Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired Halloween collection just released!
