Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer: If You’re A Seascape & Ocean Warmed By The Sun

*Press Sample*

I sort of fail at regularly posting, don’t I?  I’m sorry guys (for those that still check in!).  I always have great intentions to post, and I even take pictures- and then I get distracted and never get farther than that.  I have nonstop real life ‘squirrel’ moments combined with procrastination.  But I actually do have a lot of pictures ready to go now!  I’ve been *taking* pictures- just not cropping/watermarking/posting them.  So posts are coming!

Tonight, I have some beautiful polishes that will be for sale TOMORROW (or today, depending on your time zone!).  These are 2 polishes from the new Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer collection ‘Far From The Sun’!

First is the beautiful If You’re A Seascape.

IMG_0046

If You’re A Seascape is a coral holographic polish with a pink to gold shift.

IMG_0036

To me, the shift is more of a shimmer than a flat color shift- you can see the pink sparkles in the photo below!  It’s definitely more noticeable indoors- when you’re outside the holographic effect takes over, though the sparkles still shine though!

IMG_0039
Seascape applied nice and evenly, and covered well.  I used 2 coats with no topcoat for these photos.

The second polish I have tonight is Ocean Warmed By the Sun!

IMG_0056

Ocean Warmed By The Sun is a teal holographic polish with a green flash and pink to purple color shift.

IMG_0073
Like If You’re A Seascape, the pink to purple shift in this is more of a strong scattered shimmer, and it’s what is creating the pretty pink sparkles in these photos!  Again, it’s more noticeable indoors because the holo takes over outside in the sun.

Like If You’re A Seascape, Ocean Warmed By The Sun applied evenly and covered well.  It was a little thick, but easy to work with.  I used 2 coats with no topcoat for these photos.

The Far From The Sun collection will be available Sunday, July 20, 2014 at 3:30 pm EST.  This gorgeous collection has 8 polishes in total- 7 stunning holographic shades and 1 beautiful microglitter.  The linear holographics will be $12, the micro glitter will be $8.50, and the full set of 8 polishes will be $98.  As it has been with the last few Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer restocks, this could potentially be the only sale for some of these shades.  Colors return based on popularity- so if you see any you really want, be sure to grab it immediately!  Do not wait!

You can purchase these lovely shades at www.blueeyedgirllacquer.bigcartel.com

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Hypothermia!

Good evening everyone!  Tonight I have a quick on talking, but heavy on photos post!

This BEAUTIFUL polish is Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer’s Hypothermia!  This is a Limited Edition polish- it is ONLY available as a gift to those who buy the entire Winter collection.  I know, it’s cruel 🙂  I thought this would be a good time to show this one off, since there WILL be a couple of full winter collections available at the upcoming restock (but not many)!  So if you want this polish- you have 1 last shot!  I’ll post restock information at the bottom of the post.

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Hypothermia

Hypothermia is a beautiful deep dusty grape purple holographic polish filled a bright almost neon purple shimmer.

The shimmer is not shy, but it definitely takes a backseat to the linear holo effect!

All photos show 2 coats of Hypothermia with topcoat in sunlight.

Application was wonderful, and the coverage was good- everything went on smooth and evenly without any pooling or cuticle flooding.

As I said before, only a few bottles of this polish will be available at this weekend’s restock, and ONLY when you purchase the entire winter collection.  It is not sold on it’s own!  But I will say it’s worth the splurge, since all of the winter collection is super gorgeous 🙂

The restock will be on Sunday March 9, 2014 at 3pm EST.  You can find a full list of polishes making their last appearance on the Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer’s Facebook page!  For more information, you can check out BEGL at the following places:

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer: My Indecisive Valentine Collection

*Press Sample*

Hello everyone!  Today I have some *gorgeous* colors from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer to show you!  The My Indecisive Valentine Collection has 6 beautiful colors in it- and today I’ll be showing 2 of those!  I have Flash Forward Fantasy and I Still Adore.  This collection, along with Love Makes You Do The Wacky (seen here), Deepest Inquisitions, and All I’ll Ever Need, will be available on February 2, 2014 at 3pm EST!  Be sure to grab what you want- it will be the last ever restock for the non-collection polishes, and the Valentines polishes will only make a second appearance if demand is high!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Flash Forward Fantasy
First up is Flash Forward Fantasy.  I think Julie managed to nail the exact color of my skin tone with this one 🙂  Flash Forward Fantasy is a nude polish filled with violet flakies and a strong pink to gold shift.  This polish dries matte, but I opted to use topcoat to bring out the sparkle!
Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Flash Forward Fantasy
Coverage was good, I used 3 thin coats for these photos with KBShimmer Clearly on Top topcoat.  I ended up bumping my fingers a few times before photos- and I worried that I would have to remove the polish on that nail and start over, but I was able to just add another coat in the bumped area and it smoothed it out nicely and evenly.  Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Flash Forward Fantasy

The next polish I received was I Still Adore-  an orchid holographic polish!
Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer I Still Adore
I Still Adore is simply *stunning* outside in the sunlight.  This is a bright, beautiful dusty purple pink/orchid holographic polish with a bit of a pink to gold color shift.  You can see the pink flash in some of these photos!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer I Still AdoreCoverage was wonderful- the polish was thick, but I didn’t find it hard to work with.  This was pretty much a 1 coat polish, but I used 2 for good measure.  Everything went on smoothly and didn’t need any cleanup- and I didn’t use topcoat!  You definitely want this polish in your life!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer I Still Adore

As I said above- the My Indecisive Valentine collection will be on sale February 2, 2014 at 3pm EST.  Be sure to grab the ones you want- there won’t be many of each color, and there will only be a second restock if demand warrants it!  It will also be the *last restock ever* before retirement of Love Makes You Do the Wacky, Deepest Inquisitions, and All I’ll Ever Need.

You can find these beauties at Julie’s store:  http://www.blueeyedgirllacquer.bigcartel.com/

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer – Love Makes You Do The Wacky

Ah, nothing like a 2 month break around the holidays!  My absence was not planned, but I just got busy and distracted.  Sorry about that!   I may still show a few of the holiday polishes I bought- I didn’t get many this year, but I do have a few new pretties!

Today I’ll be showing off a GORGEOUS holographic polish- Love Makes You Do The Wacky from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer!

I actually received this polish back in September as part of my birthday present from Julie, the creator.  It was part of the Once More With Feeling collection, which was one of her debut lines for Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer!  The Once More With Feeling collection is based on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and this particular polish is for Willow, Buffy’s best friend and witch extraordinaire.  Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Love Makes You Do The Wacky
Love Makes You Do The Wacky is a light purple holographic polish with a fuchsia flash.
Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Love Makes You Do The Wacky
Application was wonderful- the polish went on smoothly and evenly.  I didn’t need any cleanup at all!  These photos show 3 thin coats with top coat (I believe I used KBShimmer Clearly on Top).

Unfortunately, the Buffy line has been retired  (sadface).  But, the reason I’m posting this one tonight- is that Julie announced today that Wacky is making a return!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Love Makes You Do The WackyJulie will be re-releasing Love Makes You Do the Wacky for ONE restock- it will be available alongside her Valentines Day polishes on February 2, 2014 at 3pm EST!  There will only be a few of each of the polishes stocked this time, and the last chance for Wacky- so if you want it, be sure to be there!  I’ve seen pictures, and I can promise you- the Valentines Day collection is BEAUTIFUL!  There’ are some definite must-haves there!

You can follow Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer on Facebook and Instagram for news and updates, and you can find her polishes in her Big Cartel store!  Be sure to check them out- she has a lot of beautiful core polishes, including the 2 customs she made for me for my birthday that are now available for everyone (Monster’s Tea at Tiffany’s and Jiggery Pokery)!


Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Discontinued Limited Edition and Lumina Lacquer Mick or Treat

Happy Halloween everyone!  I have quite a few posts scheduled for today- hopefully to make up for my couple of missed days 🙂

The first halloween mani of the day features Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer and Lumina Lacquer!

IMG_6510

First up is Discontinued Limited Edition- which is a Limited Edition!  This polish is part of Julie’s Nail Polish Frights Halloween collection.  It’s a beautiful charcoal holographic polish filled with orange sparks and shimmer.  A perfect Halloween polish!  Application was wonderful- photos show 2 coats with no topcoat.

Blue Eyed Girl Discontinued Limited Edition

Then, I topped Discontinued Limited Edition with Lumina Lacquer’s Mick or Treat!

Lumina Lacquer Mick or Treat

Mick or Treat is a fun glitter bomb that features holographic Mickey Mouse heads, as well as lots of red, orange, yellow, black and holographic glitters.  Photos show 1 coat of Mick or Treat- I applied by dabbing.  I was able to get 1 Mickey head out naturally, the others I did fish a little bit for- but Lumina Lacquer glitter bombs are so dense you rarely have to fish for long!

Mick or Treat also has big pumpkins in it- but they completely eluded me this time!  I think they’re all hiding in the middle 😉

Both of these polish are Limited Edition- while Mick or Treat is sold out (you can check sales groups and blog sales though!), there are still a few bottles left of Discontinued Limited Edition if you hurry!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Monster’s Tea at Tiffany’s Swatches

Today I’m going to show off a BEAUTIFUL polish- Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Monster’s Tea at Tiffany’s!

Julie made this gorgeous mint polish for me as a surprise birthday present, and then decided to sell it in her store!  So though it began as a custom, now everyone can enjoy it!

IMG_6083

Monster’s Tea at Tiffany’s is a pretty mint green/Tiffany blue that has a gorgeous bright green shimmer.  Simple, gorgeous, and a bit different from a lot of other Tiffany blue polishes out there.

IMG_6085

 

I used 2 coats and Out the Door topcoat for these photos.  Application was great, the polish went on smoothly and I didn’t have any issues.   While the shimmer is a bit subtle due to the color, it’s also obvious- it doesn’t hide indoors and is always noticeable (does that make sense?  It does in my head!).

Well, it’s unsurprisingly a little later than I planned- but it’s finally here!  My giveaway!

My big 3-0 birthday was at the end of August, and my blog turned 1 year old at the end of June.  My blog’s birthday sort of snuck past me, and so I decided to celebrate it alongside my birthday!

Enough talking- on to the prizes you could win!

The first is Razzle Red, which I created for my birthday.  It’s a glitter topcoat filled with every shape, shade and size of red and pink glitter I had in my glitter tub with a pink shimmer.  The second is Monster’s Ball, which I created for my blog’s anniversary.  It’s a frosty holographic purple polish filled with color shifting glitters and flakes.  Swatches of both of these will be on the blog in the next few days!
