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.

B+
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.
