Squishy Lynnderella Bow

This week's theme on the Year of Polish challenge was a mani with bows. I've done a lot of bow-related manis before because I think they are so cute! so I was excited to make another one for you

This time around, I really wanted to try and make a squishy looking bow as opposed to the "2-triangles-with-a-dot" bows I've always done.
I found a really cute mani on Youtube done by IndigoNova1 that I used as an inspiration for this mani. I really loved how adorable her bow turned out!

so here is my bow mani for week 20





Blurry shot to show off the glitter :D

Zoya in Zuza
Lynnderella in Thank Blue!
Sally Hansen in Whirlwind White
Sally Hansen in Brisk Blue
2-way nail art pen in black

I decided to do this mani in blue/green because I really wanted to try out my new Lynnderella polish. Isn't it gorgeous?! When I first found out about Lynn's gorgeous polishes, I was a little outraged at the lengths people had to go to in order to get their hands on these. I was also amazed at how much people were willing to pay for them on ebay! I refused to take part in the craziness, even if I really loved some of her creations. Then when Llarowe announced that she would be taking wishlists, I thought that finally, there is a way to get some of these without having to lose my mind :D
It took a long time for my name to come up. Since my last name starts with an R I was in the very last rotation. It also means that by the time my list came up, she was sold out of "The Glittering Crowd" :( but! I did get all of the other Lynn's that I had asked for. 

Now it seems the craze has moved on to Indie polishes. I have yet to buy polish off of etsy but I have to admit there are some really nice ones out there. I might have to wait until all the craziness dies down again before I partake though. I'm not much of a competitive person, and checking my email constantly to see if a particular etsy shop has restocked isn't how I like to spend my time haha ! Maybe I can swap for them instead!

What do you think about the nail-blog world's new found love of indie polishes?

Until next time ^_^

Love this mani. Great color combo-ing. I have been wanting the Zoya Zuza! Now I might have to pick this one up!! Love it!

If it was not for the dozen, upon dozens of polishes I currently have now hat I have not tried yet, I would pick this up right now in a second!
