# Glitter # Indie Polish

LynBDesigns Mind Palace

    Hello there my fellow lacquer lovers. Today I have an indie polish to share with you from LynBDesigns. This one is called Mind Palace and is from her Baker Street Collection. A jelly finished glitter bomb that I fell in love with when I saw the picture in her shop. Mind Palace is described as a "royal purple base with gobs of white, silver, black, purple, and even blue glitters."


     Shown here I have 2 coats of Mind Palace layered over Sinful Colors Mesmerise with top coat. Mesmerise was the wrong base color to use since it was too dark.  I ended up losing a lot of the purple glitters when looking at my nails. Thankfully the camera was able to capture them for you to see. I had to do some slight fishing for glitters to get some of the larger white hex glitters but the smaller glitters came out easily. 


     As you can see I was able to get decent glitter coverage on my nails. I didn't have to do the dab method either which was pleasantly surprising. I have to admit my experience with glitters is pretty limited and I have yet to master the dab method.


     Look at that glitter mix! I really like how the colors are bold on their own but still play nicely together. And the different sized hex glitters add a nice variety.

     Even though I used one layer of top coat I still had a tiny amount of texture from the glitters but they all laid nice and flat on the nail. A second layer of top coat would give you a completely smooth finish. Removal was typical of most glitter bomb polishes, and required a little extra time compared to a creme polish. But it wasn't a huge PITA to deal with.

     I'd like to wear this polish alone next time so all the jelly goodness can be highly visible and will add a picture to this post so you can see it both ways.

     I hope you enjoyed this post, feel free to leave me a comment below with your thoughts and as always, Happy Polishing!

     As promised I have a picture of Mind Palace all on it's own to show you. This is 3 coats without top coat.


  1. What a fun color! Love the square glitters in it :)

    1. It was such a fun polish to wear. My pictures make it look slightly chunky but that wasn't the case at all.
