New Lynnderella Release “Sweet Somethings For A Summer Solstice”
All drama aside, I just found out that Lynnderella’s blog is back up and running. I have very personal feelings regarding much of what has been said recently but THIS post, MY post, is just about sharing the new release and it’s swatches. Because information is always good! Do with it what you will.
SEE HER SWATCHES AND INFORMATION AFTER THE JUMP…
Salad Days. Garden variety: tender lettuces, herbs, radishes, tomatoes, rapscallions and carrot chiffonade. A young, bright green with dressing on the side. The expression originated in Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra, when Cleopatra is regretting her youthful dalliances with Julius Caesar and says, “…My salad days… When I was green in judgment, cold in blood…” Clear base.
Deep Blue Seeing is more than gazing into the most luscious swimming pool on a perfect summer day. Deep, rich cyan with metallic, satin and neon microglitter. Clear base featuring subtle turquoise shimmer. The macro shot is off colour—needs to be saturated with cyan.
When the Moon Was a Star, she was new and quite full of herself. Once upon a midsummer night time, she stared into a celestial blue-violet dreamscape, and wished for longer nights. Clear base. Suitable for any phase.
The Garden of Even is a magical place where the holographic magenta roses bloom for eleven months a year. The gardener is not your average goddess—she is Venus in a froth of a silk slip. Sheer pink base with bleeding glitter. Especially lovely over Verity Brilliant Violet underwear.
Pentimento, according to Wikipedia, is “an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work, showing that the artist has changed her mind as to the composition during the process of painting. The word is also Italian for repentance.” For all fine- and/or nail-art applications. Clear base. Beware of bars.
50 Shades of May-Be may be like Connect the Dots with less than fifty shades of gray, but these matters are never just black and white. Possible summer reading material? Clear base with silver-white-shimmer.
A Neutral Party seemed unconventional for a summer collection. Then we saw the new Naked Illamasquas, and remembered that unconventional was the convention we wanted to attend. Reminiscent of faux fur and tortiseshell. Clear base with beige-shimmer.
Common Sense is something that is good to have in plentiful supply, so we made a big batch. Shiny copper and pinks. Clear base with copper and pink shimmer. This one can look very pink or very copper depending on light and surroundings. Soulmate of Chameleon Corona.
