Lynnderella - Attitude Adjust Mint

Hi guys!  How's your weekend going?  We had an absolutely beautiful day yesterday here in Seattle, and we took my dog out to the dog park.  I've been really hesitant to take him to dog parks at his age, him being geriatric at almost 13 years old.  But recently I was told of this new dog park that has, as my guy affectionately calls it, a senior center.  It's a gated area for senior, or shy dogs.  It's really an awesome thing, and I wish more dog parks had it!  My dog had a blast, it makes me so happy to see him happy in his later years.  The weight of his years has weighed heavy on my heart of late.  There's been more than a few tears shed recently knowing he won't be with me forever.  But I'm really just trying to take it one day at a time, and really, really enjoy the time I have with him right now.

Anyways, enough Debby downing!


So this is my first foray into Lynnderella polishes, and I can't say I'm terribly impressed.  This is Attitude Adjust Mint which I am wearing over Zoya Neely.  Can I just say that I've worn Neely uh.....5 times since I got her!  Y'all know that never happens!  Neely is just the perfect spring green with a hint of dustiness to it.

Anyways, onto Attitude Adjust Mint. Yeah, I'm just not feeling it.  I think this polish would look great over a dark color so you can see all the amazing shimmer, but then it shouldn't be called "mint".  *sigh*, I just couldn't get into this one.  It's basically just iridescent hex glitter with some blue glass flecks shimmer.

And the end result is just meh.  The glitter didn't want to distribute evenly, and tended to clump up in spots.  It also reacted to my topcoat so there are bubbles galore which you can plainly see in the pics.


Sorry about that wound on my ring finger, I was playing with a little shit of a cat at work yesterday.  Oops.


 

Here you can see all that gorgeous shimmer, but for the most part, it's really hidden.  You can also see all those yucky bubbles, and all that nasty dry skin at the sides of my thumb *blushes*.

Can't decide if I will buy anymore of these in the future....I guess I just haven't caught the Lynnderella bug...

  1. My dog is 10 1/2 so I know what you're talking about. I get so upset sometimes that she's getting older.

  2. Aww, 13 years already, that really is old! But it is amazing you already have spent such a long time with him.


    I can see what you mean with the Lynn, it falls flat it seems, like it sinks into your base. A darker color most likely will fix that but the idea of the combo is just so good!

  3. Makes me so sad to hear about your doggy. Good to hear he is still enjoying it and digging the "senior center" :)

    Never did see the big draw toward Lynnderella. Yes, they are pretty glitter mixes, but the amount of money people are willing to pay for them is mind boggling and it is a real turn off for me...

  4. It makes me sad too! His aging seems to have come on so quick! But as long as he's happy, that's all I can ask for!


    I've never seen the big deal about Lynnderella's ether...and I really thought after this one I would "get" it, but I just don't. Oh well, more money to spend on other polish!

  5. I really consider myself lucky that I've had him around as long as I have, and that he hasn't had any major health issues or injury's up until this point. I'm just hoping for another year or two.


    I think I will have to try this color over a dark emerald and see if it make it look better.

  6. I almost think it's harder losing a pet than losing a person as sad as that sounds!
