Lynnderella Angel Food Nail Lacquer
Lynnderella Angel Food Nail Lacquer

Would You Wear Sheer Glitter By Itself?

Lynnderella Angel Food Nail Lacquer ($22.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as containing “semi-sheer white squares and hexagonal glitter with iridescent blue glitter, pink shimmer, and fuchsia micro-glitter in a translucent lavender-pink base.” It’s a pale lilac-pink with larger white squares, medium hexagonal glitters, small pink shimmer, and some fuchsia micro-glitter. I don’t have any dupes for this shade, but the base color did remind me of Cult Nails Enticing and Essie French Affair.

I tried layering this over a darker pink (Chanel Fracas), and it ended up looking really milky and uneven when applied over a pink. I thought it worked better on its own, where it was semi-sheer after two coats with a fair amount of glitter. There was good dispersion of the glitter/shimmer across the nail when applied normally (no dabbing or pulling necessary). The formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, though it was a bit thicker than a lot of Lynnderellas I’ve tried.  I’ve worn five or so of Lynnderella’s glitters for wear now, and all five have lasted for a full seven days with no chipping or peeling.

Lynnderella Angel Food Nail Lacquer Review, Photos, Swatches

This polish is milky, so it doesn't always look even when applied (which is something that is true with a lot of milky colors, not just polishes, but still a problem/area for improvement). There was good glitter dispersion, though, and I didn't have trouble getting all the different shapes in a single coat.
