Guest Post from Sweet Southern Haze!

Lynnderella One Very Cheeky Blue Bird

Hey everyone!
Hazel here from Sweet Southern Haze, filling in for Jen while she's off on her fabulous vacation. When I think of vacation, especially in the summer months, my mind wanders off to beautiful beaches with clear blue water, colorful coral and gorgeous marine life. 

Although not aquatic-themed,  Lynnderella One Very Cheeky Blue Bird LE fit what I had in mind.
Lynnderella's description - has assorted cyan and neon blue glitters accented with pink, green and red in an intensely cyan-shimmered clear base.

Dontcha love glitter macros? I love macro bottle shots - I have page dedicated to Lynnderella Macros. It's a way for me to drool over my pretties when I'm can't get to the bottle. Yes, addict. I feel like Golem, fondling them and whispering, "my preciousssss...." This one especially makes me feel like breaking out and singing "Under da Sea!" :P

For Lynnderella One Very Cheeky Blue Bird, I decided to layer it over Enchanted Polish Hazel's Dirty 30, a tiffany blue holo. I used the dabbing method to get even distribution on my nail. Lynderellas are so jam-packed with glitter, it only takes me one coat to get as much as I want on. It is love!

So shimmery and pretty.
It really sparkles!! I love it so much.

I also happen to have Lynnderella The Very Thought of Blue and wondered how they match up.


Lynnderella The Very Thought of Blue
made with assorted neon blue, green and pink glitters in a blue-green-pink shimmered clear base. It is actually quite delicate when applied due to the substantial shimmer.

Very similar macros, no?
The Very Thought of Blue has more pink neon and lime glitters and also has a blue shimmery base, whereas One Very Cheeky Blue Bird is mostly clear.  The shimmer in The Very Thought of Blue is substantial and noticeable on the nail, especially on top of a darker color. On this base though, you can see it if you look closely. The major noticeable differences are the abundance of pink and lime glitters in The Very Thought of Blue.

I happen to love the shimmer in The Very Thought of Blue! I think it would really pop over a darker color. I plan on doing a post for it on its own to showcase its beauty. It's so gorgeous and I love the more colorful glitters in it. One Very Cheeky Blue Bird is more versatile though with the clearer base - you can layer it over anything without it affecting the undie color underneath and it is has more sparkle. So both have their pluses!

What do you think?
Does it remind you of vacation?
