Happy Monday!! My Manicure Monday look today is a pastel wonder. This is Lynnderella‘s Custard Candy Cake and Literary Lacquers‘s My Secret Garden. This look is easy and cute.
So I was hoping Custard Candy Cake was just a tad more opaque. In the bottle, you can see it’s a cool pale yellow, but it brushes on very sheer, leaving lots of shimmer but not a lot of color. I’m wearing three coats here, and while the opacity increased a bit, it’s still very sheer and pale. It’s not what I wanted, but it’s still kind of chic, so I like it.
My Secret Garden was one of the first LitLacs I ever bought, and it’s still one of my favorites. It’s a pretty basic topper with lots of color and just a bit of sparkle. The colors are a little too bright for the base, and I feel like that might be washing out whatever color is there, but you don’t want to hear me say negative things about nail polish, do you? No. I’m sorry I focus on the negatives a lot, but I just write about what I see and I should probably try to stop that.
Custard Candy Cake might have been a Lynnderella limited edition because I don’t see it in stock; other Lynnderellas are available on their website and eBay. My Secret Garden isn’t currently stocked, but other Literary Lacquers are for sale on etsy.
So much colour and fun! I like this level of opacity for all that glitter in here.
It totally makes me think of Cupcakes! I don’t know why but its just like a perfect polish for a cupcake ha!
This would be great for a birthday mani
I totally see cake or cupcakes too! Great festive combination!
Custard Candy Cake is such a pretty shade! I love polish like that.
This is so fun, something I would wear to a birthday party 🙂
this reminds me of cake. Now I want cake.
Confetti nails. The colors are fun and lively.
That’s a sweet mani. Makes me want a rainbow lollipop.
These are so cheery. It’s like sprinkles!
it actually makes me want to snack on something sweet
So much sparkle. It’s been a long time since I’ve browsed Lynderella’s selection – I will have to check it out!
You know, even with all the negatives, I think it has redeeming qualities. Like, some of the glitters look pretty unique. For instance, the red one and the green have a visible pattern to them, so they aren’t just typical metallic or matte pieces. But then again, we wouldn’t know that unless we started at them at macro distance.
