NOTD: China Glaze Gothic Lolita & Lynnderella LavenDear

Happy Tuesday!

I know…I know…I’ve been neglectful of the blog again. I really do try to have a regular posting schedule, but life happens. So now I’m just gonna post when I have time and try not to stress about it.

So today I have a NOTD that I did with 2 beautiful purple polishes…Let me preface this by saying that I almost didn’t wanna show you guys this mani because one of the polishes I used is a Lynnderella. I know there’s a lot of drama surrounding them, and it’s frustrating that they’re so hard to get a hold of, but at the end of the day they’re still beautiful polishes IMHO, and that’s that.

Anyway, the lovely purples I used for today’s nails are China Glaze Gothic Lolita and Lynnderella LavenDear.

First of all, if you don’t have Gothic Lolita, GO GET IT NOW! It is an amazingly beautiful polish from China Glaze’s Electropop collection. It’s a gorgeous, medium purple with some awesome hidden shimmer running through it. When I first saw promo pics, I was like, “meh, another purple”. But it’s not just another purple. You really have to see it in person to fully appreciate it, but trust me when I say that you need it. Plus, it’s called Gothic Lolita, which I happen to think is a pretty badass name for a nail polish. It goes on smooth and buttery and is opaque in 2 coats.

On my ring finger I added 2 coats of the purple glitter explosion that is Lynnderella LavenDear. It goes perfectly with Gothic Lolita, so I couldn’t resist doing a glittery accent nail with it. Peep the purple goodness:




So what do you think of this purple mani?

It’s out of the normal range of polish colors that I tend to wear, but I love how it came out.

I know LavenDear is not easy to get your hands on, but Gothic Lolita is pretty easy to find and it’s totally awesome. Also, if you do happen to have LavenDear, I’ve just provided you with the perfect “underwear” for it. You’re welcome 😉

That’s all for today my loves! Enjoy your Tuesdays and be happy that it’s no longer Monday! 🙂

  1. Yum yum yum yum yum 🙂 Love lavendear. Great pairing!

  2. This is my favourite shade of purple! Looks gorgeous on your nails!

  3. Your mani is beautiful! Love the lavendear. If I could just get my hands on it. I’m beginning to think her polishes are just a figment of my imagination. 🙂

  4. Wow! Purple always takes me to a happy place (though I don’t wear it often enough on my nails). Gothic Lolita swatches keep reminding me that I need to keep an eye out for this beauty. It is reminiscent of the new “charming” shade from Cult Nails
