Lyn B Designs January Polish of the Month: Pyrope

Press Sample

Greetings, dear readers! I hope this post finds you well! It seems to strange to have taken a week off from blogging, but it was definitely needed with the craziness of the holiday season taking hold. This time of year is always hard on me, as the short days with little light eventually get to me, right in time for the festivities. While I have never been officially diagnosed, I'm pretty sure I have Seasonal Affective Disorder, as I find myself falling into a depressed funk every single year at the same time. I'm hoping to just get through it for the time being as the days get longer, but next year I'll be taking some steps to try to combat it earlier before it gets to that point. At least I was able to enjoy Christmas with my boys yesterday, even if it was loud with all the noises coming from their new construction equipment toys! Now onto today's blog post!

Indie polish brand Lyn B Designs has been releasing a Polish of the Month for quite some time now, and for today's blog post, I have the upcoming January Polish of the Month to share with you. Presenting: Pyrope!

Pyrope is a perfect combination of fascinating nail polish finishes. This beauty starts out with a mauve-purple base before shifting over to red, orange, and then gold, all with a glorious holographic finish. Add to that the orange holo micro shimmer and a flash of blue flakes, and you have a stunning polish shade that is sure to captivate your attention in the new year!

I really enjoyed the pigmentation and thickness of this polish. I didn't find it to be too thick or thin for my application preference, and I was able to reach opacity with just two coats. Overall the formula was easy to work with; however, it should be noted that the blue flakes can be a little sharp so this polish is best applied using a slightly heavier hand/thicker coat. This way the polish and flakes floated over your nails to coat them. You will want to take care to not overwork areas on your nails as this can cause these flakes to drag your base colour. This issue is likely only to be noticed by those that normally prefer to paint with ultra thin coats, but I did want to make sure to mention it. As long as I applied this with a medium-to-thick coat, I had no issues whatsoever.

I applied two coats of Pyrope and top coat for the photos in this blog post.

Pyrope will be launching January 1st on the Lyn B Designs website. It will be available the entire month of January and will retail for $10.

Are you excited about the January Polish of the Month shade? I really love the shiftiness of it!

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