The Land Before Time has got to be one of the best and most adorable cartoons ever made-- little child-age dinosaurs learning how to cope with loss, survival, acceptance, and friendship, all while looking SO, SO CUTE!! LynBDesigns has a full collection inspired by the little critters. This is Spike, named for the pithy stegosaurus with a big appetite. I've always had a soft spot for stegs.
Spike is a gorgeous and complex chunky glitter topper. It's got tiny black and gold glitters, a smattering of iridescent pink squares, emerald green squares, satiny spring green hexes, holographic gold hexes, and large, yellow gold flower shaped glitters suspended in a clear base. The mix has a tendency to flash blue-violet and teal. It's a wonderfully whimsical glitter with excellent payoff. The flower glitters are plentiful and accessible-- no fishing required. I used one coat of glitter and got at least one flower on each nail. I'm not quite sure how Jenna got such large glitters to suspend so nicely, but I'm impressed. The only problem is placement. These flowers will need to be placed side down on the nail to fit the curvature, or they will curl (you can see a minor and major curl on my ring finger). It's a small amount of extra effort to make a lovely glitter look its best. I used one thin and two thick layers of topcoat.
I layered Spike over three coats of OPI Barre My Soul. I've been loving chunky glitters over neutral jellies lately :)
Spike and the rest of the Land Before Time collection are available for purchase internationally for $8 at LynBDesigns' etsy shop. Like LynBDesigns on facebook to keep up with specials and new releases.
