Lynnderella 'Starfish Valentine' and OPI 'Cajun Shrimp'

Today I have an odd mix on my nails but what I'd like to show is the lovely, bright and fiery colour that is OPI Cajun Shrimp and a similarly fiery Lynnderella I have used as an accent. This is the first blog post I have made using the pictures from my new (in March) iPhone 6 plus. It is an enormous phone and I am not convinced yet that it is the right size for me. As an aside, the case I have on my phone matches Cajun Shrimp.

OPI Cajun Shrimp is a vivid red/coral and has a lovely smooth texture. It is runnier than most OPIs I have and I did get a bit of a flooded cuticle. Easy to solve by ensuring less polish on the brush. This is one of my favourite polishes and I am on my second bottle (but the first was a mini!).

Lynnderella Starfish Valentine was a limited edition released before Valentine's Day 2016. It is the rich red/orange glitter and shimmer you see, suspended in a same colour base. There are starfish glitters, pink dots and golden hearts. I did find the shapes a little shy to leave the bottle but I can see there are plenty in there. Maybe next time I'll have to stand it up side down for five minutes before using.

The dried finish was smooth - except for the starfish which was a little raised - but one coat of Poshe basecoat and then a layer of Seche Vite fixed that. There are red and gold tiny sparks in the finish and some tiny flashes of holographic sparks.

If you are reading, then I'd love your comments, feedback is always appreciated. I am not a nail technician or a photographer! I do not claim to have fantastic nails. I simply own some fabulous polishes and have some fabulous friends who help me find them! I use an iPhone 6 plus to take my pictures.
