LynBDesigns Staycation Collection Swatch and Review

Have you ever had a nail break so horrible it happens in slow motion with the broken nail floating past your face?  That happened to me the day I received the LynBDesigns Staycation collection in the mail.  It was traumatic.
 
With the help of The Polished Mommy and her awesome tutorial, I was able to make my nails a little more representable for this post.  However, I was totally down about my break and I'm waiting to do nail art looks using this collection when my nails are back to normal.

LynBDesigns Bondi
"Pastel yellow neon crème."  The formula on this and the others is crelly-ish and I applied them the same as I would a crelly.  Shown below in one thin coat, two thicker coats, and INM Out The Door Top Coat.  This is a pretty yellow.  I know you yellow lovers will appreciate this delicate yellow.

LynBDesigns Cabo
"Pastel orange neon crème."  Shown below in one thin coat, two thicker coats plus top coat.  I'm just going to shut down the repetitiveness right now and say: all my swatches are shown with one thin coat, two thicker coats and top coat.

LynBDesigns Eleuthera
"Pastel purple neon crème."  This one was pretty sheer but I love how soft this is.

LynBDesigns Ibiza
"Pastel blue neon crème."  Isn't this a pretty blue?  This shade makes me think of Saved By the Bell because Zack Morris wore an undershirt this exact shade.

LynBDesigns Miami
"Soft coral neon crème."  This is definitely one of my favorites.  I love coral.

LynBDesigns Oahu
"Pastel magenta neon crème."  This is so bright!  This has a great balance of purple/pink goodness.

LynBDesigns Rio
"Pastel pink neon crème."  This is neon Barbie pink that I use a lot in summer.....fall...winter.

LynBDesigns Santorini
"Pastel neon green crème."  One of my favorite shades, besides pink, is lime green.  It's kinda ridiculous how many lime greens I own.  That's my dirty little secret.  I have an unhealthy passion for lime green.

LynBDesigns Bora Bora
Clear galaxy holographic topper.  I was unable to get a swatch picture of this one.  You should keep an eye out for Pish Posh Polish because she'll have a review of this collection and it should include Bora Bora.
 
 
 
The formulas in this collection are consistent with Eleuthera being a bit more sheer.  The formulas are, like I mentioned before, crelly like.  They are sheer but still thick with some difficulty with self leveling.  The application of all took three coats and I used my crelly application technique with these (one thin coat, two thicker coats, and I make sure I don't overwork the polish).  These did not pass my watermarble test as they did not spread at all.  Overall, I love the shades in this collection because I love pastel neons!
 
The LynBDesigns Staycation collection will release May 6th.  You can buy the complete collection for $50 with free shipping or individually for $6 each.

  1. Beautiful swatches and shades. I live the Maybelline bleached neons but the formulas are difficult and require a white base coat. These sound like a good alternative.

    1. I didn't have that problem with the bleached neons. But, these would be a good alternative to the bleached neons.

  2. Thanks for the honest review! I probably won't be reaching for these, I'm not a fan of bleached or pale neons.

  7. Love your swatches and review! I also have a confession... Lime green is a guilty polish pleasure of mine too, even though I don't wear them often! LOL
