Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Manna’s Majestic Masterpiece

Third and final post of the day!  Phew!  This was sent for review.

Again, not going to waste too much time prattling on about things, but I did want to let you know that this is a color created with Manna of Manna’s Manis for the purple Color Box.  I think the next color box is going to be aqua/teal, so if you want to follow them, please click the link above for more information!

This is a “light lilac crelly packed with blue/purple iridescent and silver ultra holo microglitters.”  I’m wearing three thin coats with top coat.  (No base coat because I totally forgot… doh!)  This dries down really nice… it’s got microglitters but it’s not gritty at all, which is awesome.

Macro time!

This releases on May 31, 2016 at 3:30pm EST.  This is NOT a preorder, so it’s first come first served.  It retails for $8.50 and comes in full size only.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Moon Glow

Second post of the day!  Marathon! This was sent for review.

This month, instead of doing a destination duo, BEGL is doing a destination TRIO.  How exciting!  She’s paired up with Darling Diva and Northern Star for a special trio.  I have the BEGL here to review today.

This is a “sunny yolky yellow packed with rose, blue, and purple microflakies.”  Yellow is… not something you see on my blog a lot, because it tends to look horrible on me.  Not surprisingly, I kind of hate this on my skintone.  I’m sorry you have to see these photos.. I’m cringing!  I’m wearing two coats with base coat and top coat.  Application was nice and easy, as per usual with BEGL.

Here’s the macro!

I do not have the other two polishes to review, but here are descriptions:

  • Undomestic Diva. (Darling Diva) “Deep raspberry pink holo with silver holo mircroglitters.  It goes from deep and vampy to light and sparkly like the lights it took it inspiration from.”
  • Make A Wish. (Northern Star) “A stormy blue creme with turquoise micro flakes and a smattering of charcoal flecks.”

Don’t those sound gorgeous?!  This trio releases on May 31, 2016 at 3:30pm EST.  This is NOT a preorder, so it’s first come first served.  The box is $30 shipped in the US, and $30 with prorated shipping internationally.  The box will release in all three shops, and all shops ship international, so anyone can buy this!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Siren’s May Bouquet

I’m back with some last minute posts!  First up is the May Siren! This was sent for review.

I’m not going to waste time today, since I want to get all three posts I have up before the launch tomorrow!  I apologize for these being shorter posts, but hey, less to read!

This is a “pink leaning lavender creme with rainbow microflakies.”  I’m wearing two coats with base coat and top coat.  Application was easy and smooth, absolutely NO issues!  This doesn’t dry completely shiny, so make sure to top coat if you love that shine.

Macro time!

This releases on May 31, 2016 at 3:30pm EST.  It will retail for $8.50 and come only in full size.  As you know, once a siren is gone, it’s gone, so if you love this, please be prompt!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Siren Bids Adieu To Her 20s

Surprise!  There’s another sneak attack siren release for April! This was sent for review.

April is apparently Jessica siren month… we had the charity polish to celebrate her new little one, and now a special siren to celebrate her birthday this month!  Jess is now 29, in the last year of her 20s!  Enjoy it girl, because it’s gonna go fast.

This is a “bright slightly teal leaning robin’s egg blue creme packed with clear holographic microglitters and aqua, gold, and green shimmers.”  It dries satin, so if you want it shiny, you’d better topcoat it!  I’ve got on two coats with base coat and top coat!  The first coat was one of those deceptive ones where you’re like “this is NEVER going to even out,” but then with the second coat, it magically does!  The formula was perfect!

Macro:

This was a surprise release, so it’s already out!  Head on over to the shop if you want one!  It’s available in full size only and costs $8.50.  As with all siren polishes, this is first come first serve, and once it’s gone, it’s gone!  (Psst, if you want first dibs on these special sirens, make sure to join the BEGLove facebook group; details below!)

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Flight of the Conchords

The BEGL April collection has landed! This was sent for review.

Julie’s April collection was inspired by Flight of the Conchords, a show I have never seen.  So… please forgive me for not getting the references; I am sure they are hilarious!  That said, this collection is EXCELLENT.  It’s completely unexpected and refreshing for the middle of spring, and I am SO HERE for vampy nails when everyone else is wearing dainty colors.

Also, these are designed to stamp AND water marble!  I am shit at both of those techniques (really, you do not want to see me attempt this kind of thing).  I’ll make sure to revise this post and link some of my fellow BEGL bloggers who are awesome at them so you can see the polishes in action!

I want to say this up front, since I swatched all of them the same.  Two coats with base coat and top coat on each!  It’s easier to say it once than under every polish, I think.  If anything is a one coat wonder, I’ll make sure to note it!

Robo-Aggression. A “medium grey creme.”  ONE COAT WONDER ALERT.  I. love. grey. and that’s all there is to it.  This will be frequently used in my home!  My bottle was a bit thick, and so were a few other bloggers’ bottles, so Julie is going to thin the batch before sending out orders.  I know I say this a lot, but I really love when makers actually listen to feedback from their bloggers!

We’re Vincible. This is a “mustard yellow creme.”  If you’re wondering why I only have a mini bottle of this… I genuinely hate yellow in real life so I begged Julie for a mini.  I know I won’t use this in real life so I didn’t want to waste.  THAT SAID, this is a lovely true mustard color and if you love yellows, you’re going to love this!  This was a bit thick in my PR bottle, and Julie is going to thin the batch before sending out regular orders.

Rent Boy. This is a “deep scarlet creme.”  I have needed a color like this for so. long.  Honestly.  Just last weekend I wanted to paint my nails a color like this and couldn’t find one in my collection, so this arrived just in time!  I actually decided to swatch this last from my batch of things so I could do it as a full manicure.

Too Many Misters. A “deep forest green creme.”  Ah, yet another lovely one.  I don’t have my dark greens in my collection, so this is a welcome addition!  (AKA OPI Here Today Aragorn Tomorrow is a streaky mess and this is not, and the OPI is now going to a new home.  The trash.  Just saying.)  This was pretty close to being a one coat wonder, and I bet you could get away with it if you are careful.  Unlike me, sorry for the messy cleanup.  I’m hiding my face in shame, trust me.

Freaky Dream. A “blackened indigo creme.”  ONE COAT WONDER!  This was actually just freaking flawless, I’m in awe.  This is likely going to be the shortest description under a polish because… it’s just perfect.  The end.

I’m going to skip macros on these bad boys… they are creamy cremes, there’s no intricate details to see on these which is kind of nice.  They are exactly as pictured above, no matter how close you are looking!

These will be available to preorder from April 27, 2016 at 3:30pm EST until April 30, 2016 at midnight EST.  The collection is $42.50 in full size and $25 in mini size.  (So, each full size polish is $8.50 and each mini polish is $5.)  Preorders will take 2-3 weeks to ship!
