LynBDesigns Review & Swatches - The Potions Mini Collection

Helllloooo friends!

I'm back today with the second of two collections from LynBDesigns releasing this Friday!

Yesterday I showed you The Hallows Mini Collection and today I have The Potions Mini Collection to share!

If you hadn't guessed it...yep these two collection...are Harry Potter themed! I think the inspiration behind the polishes were so perfectly translated into polishes.

I decided for this set I would include one photo of the polish worn by itself and a second photo of the polish used as a topper on a base color. The only polish I didn't use that format is Felix Felicis, I explain that below, all the others will have the info about the base colors and coats also.

So let's get to it!



Polyjuice
**Description - greyish brown crelly base with golden holograhic glitter and color shift that changes from blue to purple to green**
***My thoughts - No issues with formula or application. I LOVE this over black. I think it would look really neat over a variety of colors. It's also beautiful on it's own!***
****In Photos - Shown by itself with 3 coats plus top coat and also shown over Pretty Serious Absence with one coat plus top coat****
  

Amortentia
**Description - Pink based silver flakie jelly**
***My thoughts - A little thicker formula. Not so much that it's not manageable. Easier to work with used as a topper but is thicker if used alone. This can easily be worn on it's own or as a topper. It gives a totally different look either way. I THINK I prefer it worn alone based on the way it looks.***
****In Photos - Shown by itself with 2 coats plus top coat and also shown over Zoya Dot with one coat plus top coat****
  

Veritaserum
**Description - white glass fleck based polish with added golden flecks and linear holo**
***My thoughts - A thicker formula but manageable if you take your time. Again easier to work with used as a topper but is thicker if used alone. I prefer it worn as a topper. Over white it THE perfect subtle Christmas/Winter mani!***
****In Photos - Shown by itself with 3 coats plus top coat and also shown over Pretty Serious Presence with one coat plus top coat****
   

Felix Felicis
**Bright gold glass fleck polish with added micro rainbow flecks**
***My thoughts - As noted in the intro I'm only showing this worn alone not over a base color. I think it works best worn alone. One coat gives a pretty heavy opacity to be worn over a base. That was just my preference though. I LOVE the micro rainbow flecks in this. It really set it apart from your run of the mill gold polish. A thicker formula but no real issue in regards to application or formula.***
****In Photos - Shown by itself with 2 coats plus top coat****
 

Again this lovely collection will release this Friday, along with The Hallows Mini Collection, at 7 pm EST! Do you have a favorite from the sets?

My heart is a flutter with so many fabulous polishes inspired by Harry Potter! 

See you tomorrow!
