Lynnderella, Connect the Dots. 1 coat over:
Barielle, Sweet Addiction & Cosmic Kiss.
Did I really just post a Lynnderella?!? I did! I did!
I bought this sooo long ago (back before it was a chore to purchase) and then the drama hit and it left me with a bad taste in my mouth. If you don't know about the drama that ensued; just do a little digging and you will quickly find it - along with a lot of opinions. Me, I'm gonna keep my opinion to myself. While, you won't see me buying any more Lynnderella creations I did buy some back in the Early Indie years (not that long ago; I'm just being silly) and I've since used the other two I bought but this one was waiting... waiting for the right moment. That moment is now.
Whenever I do an accent nail I feel I need something to pull it together; in my last post I mentioned this color combo reminded me of the 90's.... Well, now it's even more 90's... add a little black and white and it looks like the patterned shorts/shirt/skort you rocked back then. Girl, you know it's true. (That's a Milli Vanilli reference right there)
Connect the Dots was one of the first (possibly the first) black and white glitter polish that caused a landslide of similar glitter polishes to be made and sold like wildfire. Is it really all that great? Yeah, it really is. This polish is loaded with glitter; you get plenty of of varying black and white glitters with no need to fish for them. I used one thin coat for all of my nails. I especially love the shimmery base the glitter is suspended in; it's not thick or goopey at all. It was very easy to apply and dried very quickly. I then encased it in a coat of Gelous and then Seche Vite. It was a little bumpy, but not as gritty as some others.
I don't exactly know where Lynnderella is selling her lacquers but the last I heard she was on eBay. I don't even know if she still sells Connect the Dots either. There are tons of different variations out there; the most well known being Ninja Polish's version called Sticks n' Stones. Look around; you might find another one you like even better.
