Hey y’all! Today I have the “You’ve Been Gilmore” collection releasing October 28th from LynB Designs! This is a 12 piece collection filled with flakies, holo, and shimmer inspired by The Gilmore Girls and you can save 50% off your order by using coupon code GILMORE. This collection was sent to me for review and this post will be picture heavy! Almost all of my swatches today are shown at 3 coats with LynB Designs quick dry topcoat.

First up is Pale is The New Tan, described as a “pale tan with tonal and holo shimmer” and will retail at $8 before discount. This polish has a thicker crelly type base filled with iridescent glitters, flakies, and shimmer and looks stunning in natural lighting. It does have some yellow undertones in the nude base that is going to be flattering on so many skin tones.

Next up is Am I Crying Or Laughing? which is described as a “margarita green base with gold and silver holo glitters, subtle gold shimmer, and green glass fleck” and will retail at $8 before discounts. This is such a funky mix that I’m really digging in natural lighting! The larger glitters did most definitely make this one dry down textured so you’ll want a nice topcoat to smooth everything down.

Next up is SS Lurk, described as a “dusty blue crelly base with silver glitter, golden glass fleck, gold holo micro glitter, and a hint of copper shimmer” and will retail at $8 before discounts. This is one of my top picks! I just love the combination of those iridescent flakies, and blue grey base, and the subtle gold shimmer. Opaque at 3 coats!

mondaybottle
I Don’t Like Mondays shown at 3 coats under artificial lighting.
mondaybottom
I Don’t Like Mondays at an angle under artificial lighting.

Next up is I Don’t Like Mondays, described as a “teal linear holo with hint of purple shimmer” and will retail at $10 before discounts. At 3 coats this polish wasn’t quite opaque for me but it does have a super strong linear holo effect and the shimmer really translates well to the nail too! I think this is going to be an awesome polish for lead lighting!

Next up is another one of my top picks, I Have No Time For Jam Hands! This one is described as a “jammy purple jelly base loaded with gold glass fleck aqua and lavender holo glitters and silver holo micro shreds” and will retail for $8 before discounts. this polish had great coverage at 2 coats but was completely opaque for me in 3 coats.

Next up is Oy With The Poodles Already, described as a “pink toned purple jelly holo” and will retail at $10 before discounts. So this polish is a lot like I Don’t Like Mondays in terms of formula, it has a super pretty orchid type jelly base that is just shy of being opaque for me in 3 coats. I think this is going to be another stunner when used for leadlighting! Oy With The Poodles Already gave me a super squishy Lisa Frank type jive!

Next up is Vicious Trollop, another top pick of mine! This is described as a “browny red crelly, with a hint of shimmer” and will retail at $8 before discounts.
