NOTW: OPI You're Such A Budapest & Lynnderella Connect The Dots

This is the polish that started it all. This is the first black and white chunky glitter that, as far as I know, put Lynnderella on the map and made it the brand that was so coveted that it was sold out for months and impossible to purchase for a long, long time.
Lynnderella's Connect The Dots is a clear base with a really delicate shimmer. There's then pieces of hex, square, and bar glitter in varying sizes, all in white and black. What happens when you apply it is instant nail art, without even trying. Since Lynnderella originally released this, a few years ago, many brands have come out to dupe it, and essentially do the same thing. The one difference is the formula of this polish versus the others. The Lynnderella version has a thinner base, that layers beautifully and doesn't feel heavy on the nail. The glitter sits in the polish and makes it really easy to get the glitter on the brush and straight onto the nail.
I chose to put this on over OPI's You're Such A Budapest because it's an easy to match color with glitter of any color and size. It's a periwinkle blue creme, and was opaque in 2 coats.
OPI's YSAB is available in stores still, like Ulta. Lynnderella's Connect The Dots is available on their eBay site and is about $23.
