Rhapsody in Blue Holo Glitter - LynBDesigns, Space Gandalf

Good morning!
I'm on a roll today - I have another amazing indie polish for you, LynBDesigns in Space Gandalf.
LynBDesigns can be found on her Etsy Shop and Facebook, and has an amazing variety of polishes. She's not just a glitter/holo bomb supplier, she's got jellies, shimmers, sheers, pinks, purples, greens, blues and whites. Oh my, I think another of her polishes just accidentally jumped into my shopping cart........darn those tricksy polishes! (blog post security, thanks LynB!)
 Did I mention she also has jewelry and perfumes? Yeah, it's a dangerously fabulous place to be, my friends, you shan't escape without something you fancy! Oh and did I mention she's having a sale? Uh, yeah, she's having a sale kids, check it out on Etsy....... Dangerously.Fabulous. 'Nuf said.

ON TO THE POLISH!!
Seriously, I think Space Gandalf is my ultimate glitter/holo right now. I think I've said that about a couple of other polishes too, but seriously, I can't choose. It would be like making me choose between chocolates and caramels - not gonna happen - just depends on what kind of a day it is as to which I choose- but I love them all equally.
Space Gandalf is a stunning deep navy base with a plethora of silver holo glitter. There are silver micro, fine, shreds of holo glitter and to top it all off, silver moons! Application was fabulous, it's not as thick as I had expected, but it's the perfect consistency to hold everything together while making it totally manageable on your nails. This is three coats but I think two would make it opaque. I wanted three to really show off the depth of the color and glitter and topped it off with one coat of Poshe top coat.
Now I was really happy with my photos, I think it's the best capture I could get, but honestly this is another polish that photos just don't do it justice.
 I would also like to let you know that I added another coat of Poshe to this right after I was done taking pics which continued to compliment this polish - and best of all - I wore it for four days which included housework and showers with hardly any tip wear. (see photo bottom right) Not to shabby!!
