December 3 – Subtle Glamour featuring Lynnderella Chocolove Cherry

Lynnderella Chocolove Cherry

Diese Maniküre ist perfekt, wenn man den Nägeln einen festlichen Look geben möchte, aber nicht in Stimmung ist für klassisch weihnachtliches Rot oder Gold. Ich trage 2 Schichten OPI I Knead Sour-Dough und darüber 1 Schicht Lynnderella Chocolove Cherry aus der Groundhog Day Collection.

If you want your nails to reflect holiday season but don’t feel like going for a bold red or gold this manicure is perfect for you. You’re looking at 2 coats of OPI I Knead Sour-Dough and 1 coat of Lynnderella Chocolove Cherry from the Groundhog Day Collection. (Btw why would anyone call a collection like that and what is it referring to in this context?? I’ve looked up the German translation but that confused me even further. What do you think about this name for a polish collection?)

Lynnderella Chocolove Cherry

Lynnderella Chocolove Cherry ist ein Glitter-Topcoat mit braunem, rotem und pinkem Glitter. Obwohl ich zuerst begeistert war, einen Lack mit braunem Glitter zu finden, habe ich mir dann nicht wirklich etwas damit anzufangen gewusst. Ich habe Chocolove Cherry über sehr vielen, sowohl hellen als auch dunklen Farblacken probiert, aber die einzige Kombination, die mir wirklich gefallen hat, war mit OPI I Knead Sour-Dough. Der Basislack von Chocolove Cherry ist außerdem leicht bräunlich/rot getönt (offensichtlich färbt der Glitter ungewollt, denn laut Beschreibung sollte der Basislack farblos klar sein), wodurch es schwierig ist, ihn mit einer Komplementärfarbe wie beispielsweise Hellblau zu kombinieren, weil die Tönung von Chocolove Cherry so eine Untergrundfarbe sichtbar verändert und irgendwie stumpf aussehen lässt.

Lynnderella Chocolove Cherry is a glitter top coat that contains brown, red and opaque pink glitter including pink stars, hearts and squares. Although I love the idea of brown glitter it somehow didn’t work for me. I tried Chocolove Cherry over a bunch of different polishes (light and dark) and the only combo that I really liked was with OPI I Knead Sour-Dough. The base of Chocolove Cherry is slightly brown/reddish tinted (it should be clear though – we seem to have a bleeding glitter issue here) which makes it kind of difficult to combine it with complementary colors like for example light blue because the tinted base affects and strangely dulls this kind of underlying color.

    • Hehe 🙂 I guess the combination of the two polishes totally brings out the ‘chocolate side’ of both of them! And the tiny red glitters in Chocolove Cherry add the cherry flavor! XD


    • Thank you! 🙂 You know I’ve already received 4 polishes of the a england Burne-Jones Dream collection! (Tristam is still on its way) I am so looking forward to try them!


      • I only have Rose Bower from that collection but I totally love it. I can’t wait to hear what you think about Tristam when you get it, I really hope you like it! What do you think of the nail varnishes you’ve already received?
