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!

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.

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!).

Above the Curve: Arrivederci, Au Revoir Swatches

Next to last post before my Blogiversary/Birthday giveaway goes LIVE tomorrow!!!  I’ll be posting again to show off the very last polish included in the giveaway (that isn’t one of my own), but I won’t make everyone wait any longer!

These 2 beauties are custom polishes Angel and Shaun at Above the Curve came up with for me special for this occasion!

My favorite colors are pink (which is obvious to most people I’m sure), grey, mint, and tiffany blue.  I especially wanted a mint/tiffany blue holo, since I adore holos from ATC.  These are the two matching polishes they came up with!

Coming up with names stumped me for a bit.  But I already have some of my own polishes/other prizes that I’ve made for this giveaway that revolve around the movie 13 Going on 30, so I ran with that idea!  (It was my 30th birthday, and I love the movie).  This is the goodbye greeting used by the main character with her best friend- which seemed perfect for a matching pair of polishes that were connected but different 🙂

First up is Arrivederci- a minty cream filled with neon pink, white and grey glitters.  This is just 1 coat over Au Revoir (shown below).

And second we have Au Revoir, a minty holographic polish!

These two will come together as a pair for one of the prizes 🙂  Check back tomorrow to see everything and enter!

You can find Above the Curve polishes in their Big Cartel store, their Etsy store, and also at Overall Beauty.  You can also follow the ATC Facebook page for news and updates.  These polishes were customs, but they have TONS of beautiful polishes to pick from!

Smitten Polish Gooseberry Gumdrop and Elevation Polish Haba Xueshan

This mani is what I wore this weekend to my sister in law’s bridal shower- my outfit had a mint green shirt with black slacks and a black 3/4 sleeve jacket, and this added a bit of fun all while matching perfectly!

I was the incredibly lucky winner of Smitten Polish’s Spring Giveaway- I haven’t won many giveaways, let alone such an AMAZING huge prize!  I won all of the Berrydrop and Speck-tacular colors- and they are all are so very, very beautiful.  This is one of the Berrydrop colors- Gooseberry Gumdrop.

For the Berrydrop collection, think of Illamasqua Raindrops in a rainbow of colors.  All of the colors in this collection are very soft, muted pastels filled with fine white flakes.  This particular color is a beautiful mint green.  I used 3 thin coats- 2 coats may have been enough but there was just a hint of visible nail line.  2 thicker coats would be sufficient coverage.

Then I topped Gooseberry Gumdrop off with one of my other latest additions, Elevation Polish’s Haba Xueshan.  This polish was just released in March in the View From The Top Collection.  It’s similar to many other black and white polishes- various shapes and sizes of black and white glitter in a clear base.  What makes Haba Xueshan unique is the addition of small and large ice blue/green circle glitter.  I love it!  This is just 1 coat of Haba Xueshan.  I had to fish a tiny bit for the circles- they weren’t difficult to find, but I wanted to have many on each nail!
