Lynnderella - Pentimento (Sweet Somethings for a Summer Solstice, 2012) and OPI - Don't Touch My Tutu! (NYC Ballet Soft Shades, 2012)

OK, wow...this is my first and only Lynnderella polish....Pentimento.

And this is how it is described on Lynnderella's blog:
"Pentimento, according to Wikipedia, is "an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work, showing that the artist has changed her mind as to the composition during the process of painting. The word is also Italian for repentance." For all fine- and/or nail-art applications. Clear base. Beware of bars."

And that all in one tiny bottle of polish!

I made a glitter sandwich of it with OPI Don't Touch My Tutu! I started with OPI then Pentimento then OPI, Pentimento and OPI again (and two layers of topcoat). I was very surprised to get the huge black hex....I could not see those living in there from the outside of the bottle.

I like it that the OPI makes it look like the glitters are snowed in...it feels like winter.

I know that there is/was a lot of controversy around Lynnderella and her polishes....what can one say about these things? Lynnderella is an true artist with glitter (I really think so) and well, throughout history it has become evident that artist are,in many, many cases, not very good in public relations, money and sales.....But it is the product that counts (although it is very expensive and barely unobtainable). Thank you Kristy from The Polish Haven for putting it in your blogsale and selling it to me!!!
