Wheel L8: Glitters from Lynnderella and Girly Bits

It's the triumphant return of Nail Wheel Wednesday after over a year! Well, the return, anyway. Today it's glitter polishes from Lynnderella and Girly Bits. Lynnderella was one of the early indie nail polish brands, and one that had a fair bit of drama surrounding it for a while. That drama, and the way the maker was personally awful to a friend of mine, put me off the brand. With so many other options around, I never bought any more Lynns and started selling off the ones I had, though not before painting them on wheels—I think this the the third of four that had some Lynns on it. (The friend I felt bad for ended up disappointing a fair few folks later herself, so I don't even know.) All that said—and I suspect I've said it before but am dealing with a wonky internet connection today so can't look it up—the polishes are still interesting; enough time has passed that I might start wearing the ones I have left. The other brand on this wheel, Girly Bits, is another fairly early indie brand, one about which I've never heard any major drama. I haven't bought many from her recently but not for lack of wanting to, just from guilt over having so many polishes I haven't touched and my much smaller hobby budget in retirement. I'm glad I have some of these early Girly Bits, back when she was using paper labels and bottles with gems on them.



(Lynns three coats plus topcoat; Girly Bits are two coats plus topcoat)

14. Lynnderella She Lived in a Swamp
15. Girly Bits Magically Delicious

Destash notes: I'm not entirely sure which of the Lynnderellas I've already gotten rid of. The Girly Bits I pretty much want to keep all of, though I could be persuaded to part with 19 and 20 because I have so many other red, white, and blue glitters.

  1. ooh, lovely glitters!
    I remember the drama, and that is exactly why I only own a few Lynns.

  2. What a walk down memory lane. I need to do something with my Lynnderella as well. Just can't decide. ❤

  4. Oof... polish drama. The one thing that makes me glad I'm not quite as obsessed as I once was. lol

    I did a total double-take when I saw "Nail Wheel Wednesday". It's been so long! Glitter is a great way to come back. :D
