Lynnderella Very Pretty Vampire

This was on my lemming list and a fellow Ausie blogger took pity on me and sold me her bottle!

 Now that I have it, it's a little bit of a letdown. This is my second Lynnderella and I couldn't see what all the fuss was about the first time around, and this color also has left me feeling that way.

I couldn't get it shiny even after 2 coats of Glitter Tamer and a coat of Seche QD.  And as a much higher priced glitter, I felt it wasn't worth the money.  I have soooooooo many more glitters in my stash that just POP and only cost $8.


I layered it it over OPI DS Extravagence, here is 2 coats of it on it's own.

Does anyone else own VPV and do you like it?


  1. No, no VPV's on this end, sorry, but for what it's worth I think this polish looks absolutely lovely on you. I totally see what you meant, but rather like the somewhat understated intensity of the glitter (I can't help thinking this would be an amazing polish to partner with a she devil or vampire Halloween costume).

  2. i used it as an accent finger on my ring finger over picture polish vampire and it looked wayyyyyyyy better than as a full manicure.

  3. I think this is really really pretty (and the name really suits it) but it's not that unique.

  4. I also have been let down by this was hyped because it was out there among the first of the 'homemade' indies doing different things. But the whole impossible to get - the inflated prices and lack of performance of the ones I got ... well I stopped lemming this brand and also stopped buying them all together. I would never want to put anything other than a clear topper over OPE DS Extravagance - I adore it - but then fuchsia/magentas are my top fav shades up there next to amazing reds - they are the 2 shades I reach for more than any others.

  5. I was disappointed with this one too at first. I wore it over DL Single Ladies and the glitter just didn't do anything for me. I tried it again recently over a pink creme (OPI Pink Friday) and I liked it so much more. I think I like my Lynns more when I wear them over something that adds a little contrast.

  6. Hi everyone glad i found this site! I am waiting on my first 2 bottles of lippmann collection polish. This will be my very first experience with high end polish but i must know what you use as a top coat to get your nails so shiny? And do i need a bottom coat of anything as well? I am a polish virgin and oh so excited to give it a go!
