Good evening readers! I hope that this post will make your Monday a little less murky and a little more magnificent! Today I have some awesome Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers on the blog. Let me tell you if you’ve ever wanted one of those polishes that you could never seem to snag because it was so popular? Now’s the time. Blue-Eyed Girl is going to be doing a PRE-ORDER on some of her Fan Favorites! I have several to show you before I get down to the nitty gritty with all the information you’ll need to secure your own bevy of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers. Without further delay let’s get started.
First up I have Untrodden Snow:
Untrodden Snow is a perfect white crelly polish. The maker describes the polish as, “White with blue flash and blue shimmers.” Perfect description in my opinion. Not only would this be an awesome base for nail art or stamping but the flash and shimmer leave it from feeling too sterile!
Application was good for a white polish which are notoriously a pain in the behind to work with. This one didn’t leave me with chalky residue or anything of the sort during clean up either which I consider a miracle. It is a crelly based polish so it’s a little bit “squishier” than a creme. I do want to note that all Blue Eyed Girl Lacquers are designed to be used in one to two coats. That means they may run thicker than other polishes on the market. This is purposeful so that people can thin it to the consistency they prefer. Some want a quick one to two coat mani and others tend to build in layers. Personally I did thin this one a bit and used three thin layers coats which gave a perfect finish.
Next up I have Monster’s Tea at Tiffany’s:
Looooove this one. This is sooo in my preferred color family. One cannot own enough Tiffany Blue polishes. They just can’t. The maker describes this color as, “Tiffany blue with green to red shift.” I love the extra little shifty shimmer in this one it’s like an acid green to a coppery red shift.
The formula on this one was fantastic! I didn’t thin this one I left it as is and it was fully opaque in two perfect thin coats. Nary a complaint here and I can’t wait to wear it again!
Now onto another polish that is going to be a staple in my collection, Bound to the City Life:
Oh.Em.Gee. YES! You might be asking yourself, “is that a dark teal jelly polish with teensie tiny multi-colored holographic sparklie thingamajigs?!?” I am here to answer you with a resounding YES! Yes that is exactly what this is! I nearly passed out when I unwrapped this one. I will use it again and again and again. This is perfect for quick manis when you just want something dark and vampy on your nails. The maker describes this one as, “Dark teal jelly with teal, turquoise, purple, and blue holo microglitters.”
Perfection in a bottle. That’s really all I have to say about this one. It’s a jelly but it is perfectly opaque in two coats and it applies like a dream.
Ok…I’m back I’m revived and depsite my shenanigans with the previous polish we’re up to my FAVORITE of the Fan Favorites I was sent. Wanna Fall In Love Tonight:
*heavy breathing* Ok, so yes, I’m the girl that is in love with blues, teals, turquoises, and greens. But every so often a color comes around that just shouts at me and makes me want to reevaluate my preferred color family. This is one of those polishes. That beautiful orchid purple! That golden-red shimmer! I’m utterly smitten. The maker describes this as, “Purple with glowing red shimmer.”
As if the gorgeousness wasn’t enough the formula on this is a true ONE COAT WONDER! Just.One.Coat. Seriously it doesn’t really get any better than that. In case you missed it, this is one coat plus topcoat. This one does dry to a satin finish.
Just this. This is just everything.
Last but not least is the June 2015 Siren offering! This is a special Siren to celebrate BEGL’s 2 Year Anniversary. Siren’s Birthday Sprinkles!:
Blue glitter explosion!!!! Absolutely fantastic glitter topper for summer manis. This is another one that I will reach for often as it will look good over a myriad of bases! The maker describes this one as, “Clear base with sky blue holo, navy holo, royal blue and Canadian blue glitters with blue microflakies.” So much blue glitter that I’m in blue glitter overload!
Ok you see all that glitter? ONE coat. Just one unfussed coat. I didn’t manipulate, I didn’t dab, I didn’t fish, I didn’t contort myself into all different positions to try to coax the glitter out of the bottle and onto the nail. Nope, I just dipped the brush and brushed it on. Excellent formulation for a glitter topper! Not to mention since it is all smaller sized glitters it’s not terribly topcoat hungry either and one coat of topcoat smoothed everything out for me.
Oh and in case you were wondering, yes it DOES look amazing over Wanna Fall in Love Tonight:
