Hiya! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a BEGL collection, eh? I feel like I’ve been concentrating on Sirens and destination duo polishes lately, so I’m excited to be able to show more than one BEGL in the same post! I’m sorry that I’m posting it about two months after it came out but hey, we’re all doing the best we can right now, haha! I purchased these myself.
The Leave the Sun Behind Me collection was based off the move The Darjeeling Limited. I’m sad to say I have yet to see this film. Oops. I know it was on my fiance’s Netflix but I must have missed when he watched it… maybe I should add it again so I can finally watch it! The intensity of the colors I have to show you today makes me SUPER EXCITED to actually watch the movie though. I’ve got a lot to show you, so let’s get into it…
(One quick note: These are a bit thinner than normal BEGL polishes, since they are neons! They are designed to go on in 2-3 coats for full coverage! As most neons go, these dried to a more matte/satin finish, but top coat will fix that easily if you’re not into it.)
40/41. This is a “neon teal with cobalt Nfu Oh style flakies.” It’s important to note that once this one is gone, it’s gone. It’s a one time run polish because the flakies used it in are discontinued! I’m wearing three coats of this with base coat and top coat. (I could have gotten away with two in real life, but I wanted to be safe for photos.) I’m not the biggest flakie fan, so it’s nice to have a polish where they are kind of flying under the radar a bit. It gives the polish interest while still being a color I really, really enjoy!
Thanks For Using Me. A “neon green (slightly darker than highlighter green) with a gold to green to blue shifting shimmer.” I’m wearing two coats with base coat and top coat. This did not need three coats, which was a treat. The formula was thin enough and easy enough to manage that it didn’t get gloopy. Love that! Plus, this is another reason for me to gush about Julie’s mini bottles… application is STILL perfect even with a slightly smaller brush. I adore the minis from Julie, they still last forever.
Look At These @#$holes. This is a “fluorescent red with pink shimmering glass flecks.” (VERY important note: this polish is light sensitive which means it could fade to a more coral color. The price of this polish is reduced. If you choose to buy it, please make sure that you store it in a cool, dark area. Julie has marked the bottles AND included a black bag so that you can store this vampire safely! But I’ve seen pictures of the faded color, and that’s really pretty, too. So really, you can’t go wrong here.) I’m wearing two coats with base coat and top coat. I SO regret getting this in a mini, and will absolutely be re-purchasing this color in a full size bottle!
Stop Involving Me! A “neon yellow with copper shimmers and gold glass flecks.” I’m wearing three easy coats with base coat and top coat. I could have gotten away with two coats in real life but I wanted to be safe for photos. Honest to god, this is the first neon yellow that hasn’t been a total horror to apply AND that doesn’t need a white base coat. I’m seriously impressed. The copper shimmers and gold flecks make this shade a bit more wearable too, they add some depth that is lacking from other neon yellows.
It’s In The Itinerary. This is a “neon purple jelly with blue to magenta to teal to gold ultrachrome flakies.” This is craaaaazy! I’m wearing three coats with base coat and top coat. I will say that this is my least favorite of the collection, but I knew that going in… it’s solely because I have never been a flakie kind of girl. That doesn’t make this polish any less gorgeous though… these flakies in a colored base is a genius idea!
Rubby. A “neon pink with purple shimmers and a strong purple shift.” Oh neon pinks, you make my world go round. I’m wearing two coats of this with base and top coat. Application was positively silky. I know silky is a weird word but that’s the only word that came to mind! I just… love neon pinks. I can’t get enough, so I buy all of them! One of these days I will get around to doing a BEGL neon pink comparison. I have a handful of them, and they all have something distinctive to set them apart from every other pink.
Time to show off some macro pictures!
The full collection is available in the BEGL shop! (Note: as of publishing this post, 40/41 is sold out, as it was a one-run batch. I’m sorry!) The entire collection will cost $58 in full size and $31 in mini size (plus shipping). The polishes range from $8.50-$12.50 individually in full size and $5-$6 individually in mini size. (Some supplies are more expensive than others!) Look At These @#$holes is the lone exception, and it is $5 for full size and $3 for mini, due to the light sensitivity.
I help moderate an exclusive fan group on facebook for BEGL called BEGLove. There are awesome people in there, including Julie herself! (Aka we get sneak previews and special snowflake treatment from time to time.) If you’d like to be added to the vouching list, please click here and request membership. We do adds almost every week!
