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!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Siren’s Vamp Chic Spring

April’s siren is here, and she’s a beaut! This was sent for review.

Oh MAN I love when a maker goes rogue and makes “seasonally inappropriate” collections.  I use that in quotes because, really, there are no season rules to me.  But I love nothing more than getting some vampy goodness when I’m in the middle of being barraged with a sea of pastels and brights.  (Same goes for winter, I love getting girly pastels in a traditionally vampy season!  And I love neon pink at all times, in case anyone is wondering and wants to send me more neon pinks.)

This is a “deep grape purple scattered holographic packed with gold holographic microglitters and gold and purple microflakies.”  I’m wearing two coats with base coat and top coat here.  This is a LOVELY polish.  My PR bottle was just slightly on the too thick side, so I let Julie know and she’s going to add some thinner to the batch before it’s sold, so please do NOT worry about mine being a bit thick.  I’m not surprised… this is jam packed with goodies!  I added some thinner on my own and it was perfect.  I wore this as a full manicure for a few days and it wore impeccably, no shrinking or chipping!

Macro time!

This is releasing on April 27, 2016 at 3:30pm EST.  This is available in full size only and will cost $12.  There will be a 24 hour preorder period for this polish, since there’s been a lot of interest!  Still, it’s best to be prompt.😉

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Lilly of My Dreams

I have SUCH a special polish to share today!  This was a gift.

This polish was created in honor of Julie’s good friend (and my good friend!) Jessica’s pregnancy.  Jess suffers from PCOS and was told that she would likely never conceive and yet… she’s aaallllmost a mom!  Everyone is awaiting Lillian’s arrival (Jess especially), and we all couldn’t be happier about this miracle!  Julie created this nail polish as a gift for everyone at Jess’ baby shower, but these two wanted to take it one step further and release it as a charity polish.  They have the biggest hearts.  More details after the swatches!  In the meantime, let’s all wish Jessica and her husband an easy, safe delivery.

This is a “hot pink (leaning a touch red) creme packed with blue shimmers.”  It. is. flawless.  This is two coats with base and top coat and let me tell you… this is going to be on my nails and toes ALL SUMMER and also until the end of time.

Time for a macro!

So, this is a charity polish.  Here’s the deal: this will be up as a preorder polish in the BEGL shop from April 27, 2016 at 3:30pm EST until April 30, 2016 at midnight EST.  It is available in minis only (because baby!), and will cost $5.  100% of the profits will be donated to Jess’ charity of choice, PCOS Awareness Association.  (Note: you will still have to pay shipping on this polish.)  Preorders will take 2-3 weeks to ship.  Julie will make the donation to PCOS Awareness Association on May 2, 2016, and post confirmation on her facebook page.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Siren’s Sea Sanctuary

I’ve got March’s surprise siren for sharing today! I was sent this for review.

I looooove the special edition sirens.  Julie usually lets the honoree have some say in what they want to see, and it’s just really special.  (I got REAL bossy about my siren’s name last summer, oops.)  This one is for Lisa from Cosmetic Sanctuary.  Happy belated you day, Lisa!

This is a “pastel aqua crelly base packed with matte and metallic glitters in varying shades of mint, aqua, turquoise, and caramel.”  I’m wearing two coats with base coat and top coat.  I love the formula on this one… it’s thinner and smooth… the glitter doesn’t feel too gritty, which I love!  I think next time I wear it I’m going to go for one coat over a light blue base, since two coats is a bit sheer on my nails as is.

Ready for the macro?!

This was a special release to celebrate a BEGL blogger’s birthday!  If there are any left, they will likely be in the Siren section of the shop.  BEGLove members get first dibs at the special release sirens, because Julie is the kindest person in the world.  This polish is currently available in the main section of the shop though, so hurry if you want it.
