Lyn B Designs: October Polish of the Month and Throwback Shade

Press Sample

Greetings, dear readers, and happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed a fun filled weekend and your week is starting off on a positive note! As for me, it was a weekend of random errands as this is another week of solo parenting while my husband is out of town for a conference. I'm hoping that is won't affect my blogging too much, but if it seems quiet on this end, that is why! Now let's jump in on today's post!

I always look forward to the start of a new month and the newest offerings from Lyn B Designs! Jenna, the creative mastermind behind the brand, has a new shade to decorate your digits as well as the return of a favorite oldie for the month of October. Let's check them out!

Deep teal holo with shimmer that shifts from pink to blue to purple.

Whelmed is a new offering by Lyn B Designs, and this blackened teal with shimmer is perfect for autumn as the days get cooler and shorter. The formula is fantastic as well. I used two coats plus top coat for these photos. The colour is a little on the sheer side so you may need to use a third layer if you paint with very thin coats.

Retail: $10

Fire Swamp
Shimmery golden bronze base with orange, red, black and gold glitters.

If you're relatively new to the indie polish world, you may not be familiar with this month's throwback shade, Fire Swamp. It was originally released as part of the Princess Bride-inspired collection, the Dweam Wiffim A Dweam Collection, back in 2013. The polish screams fall, so I am delighted to see its return this month! The formula was easy to work with overall, although the first coat was a little uneven and patchy. The second and third coats evened my nails out nicely. I then added top coat for these photos. If you would prefer to use fewer coats, you can easily layer this over a similar base shade.

Retail: $10

Both the Polish of the Month, Whelmed, and throwback shade, Fire Swamp, will be available for purchase from the Lyn B Design website located here starting September 30th.

Do you look forward to seeing the newest shades being launched by Lyn B Designs each month? Do you have a favorite shade between these two? Is there another older Lyn B Designs polish you hope to see make a return as a throwback shade? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
