Lyn B Designs:The Great Pumpkin Collection

Press Sample

Hello, dear readers. I'm afraid I don't have it in me to be my usual peppy self for this blog post, but I need some sense of normalcy in my life right now hence my writing this morning. If you are not already aware, I live in Sonoma County, and we, along with other areas of the North Bay Area, have been devastated by fires. At this time, I am still at home safe with my family, but it is heartbreaking to hear about the devastation experienced by so many that have lost their homes. We are currently ready to evacuate in a moments notice if we have to, and I greatly appreciate having my blog more than ever to distract me from the news. I need something positive right now, so let's jump in on today's review.


I am really excited to report that Lyn B Designs has created a collection inspired by It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I have been a fan of this festive Halloween flick for as long as I can remember, and it has become tradition to watch it every year in October. The Great Pumpkin Collection consists of four beautiful shades in a variety of finishes. Let's check them out!

The Pumpkin Patch

Green crelly base with orange to green iridescent glitter, blue glass fleck, and holo micro flakes.

The Pumpkin Patch is my favorite polish in this collection. I just love this shade of green, and the additional glitters, glass flecks, and micro flakes make it even more interesting. The formula is a little on the thicker side due to all the components, but it was still easy for my to apply to my nails as long as I worked a little slowly. I did have a few of the glitters hanging off my free edge with the initial application, but they pushed nicely back up onto the nail. Photos are shown with two coats plus top coat.

I'm a Believer

Black base with red to gold shift and holo flakes and shreds.

This is such a cool shade! The shreds really pop nicely against the background for a fun look. The base formula is perfection- not too thick or thin, but you will still have to apply slowly and carefully. The shreds are, not surprisingly, a little sharp, and rushing the application can made then dig into and drag the base away. I have it shown here with two coats plus top coat.

Sing Pumpkin Carols

Bright pink crelly base with linear holo and shifty shimmer from red to violet to blue.

While rich, vampy colours are the most common for autumn, it's nice to see such a bright and cheerful pink in this collection! The formula was really easy to work with although you do want to take care not to overwork it, resulting in a thicker and less even finish. I needed two coats for opacity and topped my nails off with top coat for these photos.

Religion, Politics, and the Great Pumpkin

Indigo base with blue to purple to green shimmer and orange holo sparkle.

Religion, Politics, and the Great Pumpkin is another favorite shade from this collection. The orange holo sparkle pops so perfectly against the base colour! I have no issues with the formula to report on this beauty, and I used two coats plus top coat for these photos.

The Great Pumpkin Collection will be launching on the Lyn B Designs website this Friday, October 13th at 7pm EST. To celebrate the launch, Lyn B Designs will be offering a 50% off discount from from October 13th through October 16th on any purchase from the store.
