Mercury's Rainbow is a sheer, shimmery, charcoal grey base, with fine silver glitter, gun metal grey and holographic hexes. For some reason, I just can't seem to like this polish. Now I know Lynnderella is raved about in the polish community, but my bottle just seemed to be a giant pile of gloop. The application was awful, it either came out in clumps or with nothing at all and it seemed to take forever to dry! Has this happened to any one else? Or just mine? The photos below are 2 coats of Mercury's Rainbow over Essie - Licorice, with a Top Coat.

Excuse the messy swatches, I had painted my nails at 4am because I couldn't sleep. On the plus side, I've finally learnt how to capture some good macro images! YAY. So you can expect to see more of those in the future! Like I said, Mercury's Rainbow just didn't wow me, I tried to love it, but I just couldn't. It has now gone to a new home, where it will hopefully get the love it deserves! What are your thoughts on Mercury's Rainbow? And just Lynnderella polishes in general? This being my first, I can't comment on the others.
