Creations By Lynda Fairytale Dreams Collection Swatches & Review
Today I have a brand new Indie on the blog! Creations By Lynda! Her first collection released is the Fairytale Dreams Collection and she sent the entire collection to me for my honest review. There is also a bonus swatch of Sunrise from her Tempus Fugit Trio Collection.
I used 1 coat for Crimson Wolf and this polish was unfortunately a flop for me. Luckily, Lynda has reformulated it to be a bit better, but I have not swatched the reformulated version. Crimson Wolf is a red base with iridescent square glitters. My main issue with this polish is that the base overpowers the glitter and the glitter was clumping up together which made application difficult.
Lynda provided a swatch of the reformulated version:
Charming One is a shimmery mint green base with blue and white square and hex glitters. I used 2 coats for this photo and a glossy top coat.
Golden Spindle is a shimmery gold base with black shreds and gold micro glitter. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Snow Day is a shimmery white base with iridescent and sky blue glitters. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Swan Song is a shimmery pink base with small purple hex glitters. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Wicked Enchantment is a purple base with black shreds and silver stars. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Bonus Swatch – Sunrise:
Sunrise is a rose colored base with small silver holographic glitter scattered throughout the polish. I used 3 coats for this photo. Of the 7 I swatched, this one was my absolute favorite.
Overall, I wasn’t incredibly impressed by this collection. The color combinations were really well done, but for some reason the bases either overpowered the glitters, or the glitters gave off an overly textured appearance within the bases. I do know the creator, Lynda, is working out kinks to her polishes (like what I showed for Crimson Wolf) as reviews came in, and she seems very open minded about the collection and is working on improving the formulas in order to make her brand better as a whole. Application wise – all had good application (aside from Crimson Wolf) and went on easily and I didn’t have too many issues getting full coverage out of the polishes. Even Crimson Wolf had good opacity in just 1 coat.
As I said, Lynda is working out kinks and has even set up a “Review Team” to work with her to give honest feedback so she knows what areas to improve. I did let her know my issues with Crimson Wolf, and she didn’t try to talk me out of posting it, which shows a lot for her brand. She still wanted people to see Crimson Wolf regardless of it getting a good or bad review, so I do have to give her a lot of credit on that as she wants readers to see an HONEST review.
