Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: XOXO, Siren

July’s Siren is here! This was sent for review.

This is already going up stupid late, I apologize.  I am STILL catching up from vacation.  I guess that’s what happens when you go away for two weeks and come home to busy weekends and also the start of the busy season at work.  Whoops.

This is a “steely-blue-grey with blue to purple to pink shifting shimmers.”  I’m wearing two coats plus base coat and top coat.  Application was flawless, OF COURSE.  My photos are making this look a little on the blue side, but in real life, it’s a cool-leaning almost true grey.  I love it very much a lot.

Ready for the macro?  I just got a new macro lens and I think it’s really excellent for the price ($15?!):

I’m still learning the best angles with this macro but I think it’s pretty good, eh?  XOXO, Siren is available as a first-come, first-serve polish in Julie’s shop, for $12 in full size only.  If you want one, go now!  There are still plenty left in the shop as I’m publishing this, but I can’t guarantee how long they will remain in stock.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Siren’s Shore Haven

July had a super secret siren release, for my birthday! This was a birthday gift and also sent for review, so make of that what you will. (July also had a regular siren release, but I’m a bit behind due to being on vacation for 100 years, so please forgive me.  Coming soon!)

I’m so lucky to be friends with Julie, because she is kind and smart and lovely and an amazing friend and very beautiful and looks good in every lipstick because she is a demon.  And even luckier that she makes nail polish, one of my favorite things, AND EVEN LUCKIER that she made me a special polish just to celebrate my birthday.  (And she let me be bossy and tell her what color I wanted!  I’m pretty sure I was super vague, too, so snaps for her for figuring out exactly what I probably didn’t know I was dreaming of.)  Thank you for the beautiful gift, my love, it’s appreciated.  I hope you all like what “I” (cough Julie cough) created.  I like my birthday sirens to be beach themed, because that’s my favorite place to be for my birthday.

This is a “light pink linear holographic with pink to purple to gold shifting glass flecks and platinum microshreds.”  I’m wearing two coats with base coat and top coat.  It was almost a one coat wonder but I was being sloppy and also wanted my pictures to look clear, so I did two just to be safe.  This applied really well… a little thick, but not in a bad way, just in a creamy way.  I’m in awe of this shade, and how my dumb idea turned into something so glorious in Julie’s head!  The pink slow makes me think of sunrises at the shore.  Anyway, this was so gorgeous that I wore it for a full week (and it didn’t chip!  Bonus!), which is pretty rare for me, since I get tired of colors easily.

Macro! (My old macro lens kicked the bucket and I got a new one… hope you like the quality of this!  Let me know.)

This was a special 24 hour release to the members of the BEGLove facebook group (if you want in, check the end of this post!), before it moved over to the main shop.  It’s $12 in full size only, and there are a few bottles left at the time of posting so run if you want one!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Wash Away What’s Past

Hello there!  Another gorgeous polish for you today!  This was sent for review.

Julie sometimes participates in special boxes, and then some of the leftovers get released a few months later in her shop for all of us to buy!  I really appreciate this… sometimes I have a hard time investing in boxes, because often I want one or two of the colors, but not all of them.  It’s hard for me to pull the trigger on things I don’t love, so I was really glad to be able to have this polish outside of the box, even if I did have to wait a while.  The wait was worth it to me!

This is a “taupey-greige scattered holographic with a strong gold to red shift.”  WHAT A UNIQUE COLOR.  I don’t have anything like this in my collection, which is probably why I’m so in love with it.  I’m wearing two coats with base coat and top coat, and application was the usual flawless BEGL formula.

This releases on August 24, 2016 at 3:30pm EST.  This will be first come, first serve, and cost $12 in full size only.  The shop will be closed from September 1-23, 2016, so please be prompt if you want this beauty!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Lilac Blondes on the Beach

I am on vacation so… let’s go! This was sent for review.

Every year, Julie brings back fan favorites so that new fans have a chance to snatch up some BEGL classics that they missed.  This years’ are amazing, and are already up in the shop, so head over if you want to check them out!  She also does a fan created polish contest, and this year’s winner, Corinne Loftus, designed the stunning beauty you’re about to see… Corinne did an AMAZING job.  Congrats, girl!

This is a “sandy nude linear holographic packed with purple shimmer and purple microflakies.”  I’m wearing two flawless coats with base coat and top coat.  I really love how this applied, it felt like it was the smoothest formula yet!  I also really love this kind of grungy blonde color, it’s super unique in my collection, and it looks great with a tan.  (But also without!  It’s a very flattering color!)  I mean, you know I love me a good beach inspired color… this is right up my alley.

Time for that macro!

This is available for preorder right now, and will be up for preorder until August 10, 2016 at 11:59pm EST.  Full size is $12, mini is $6.  You should get this one, it’s just so unique!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Three Years and S-teal Going

Coming at you today with a quick post from vacation! This was sent for review.

Happy 3rd birthday, BEGL!  Julie usually makes a birthday celebration polish, so I think we all knew one would come, but we did not know it would be this freaking beautiful.  (Okay, that was lie, we would definitely know that any BEGL coming out would be beautiful.  I apologize for the lie.)  I’m at the beach so… let’s get right into swatches!

This is an “aqua/teal crelly packed with clear holo microglitters and purple/blue microflakies.” I’m wearing three coats with base coat and top coat.  This was a bit sheer to work with, but not in a bad way!  I like that it built up easily!  I could definitely get away with two coats in real life, but I wanted my swatches to be perfect.  What I didn’t account for was the AWFUL STINKING LOBSTER HANDS that my STUPID CAMERA PICKED UP even though IT WAS FINE IRL.  I’m furious, and I didn’t have time to redo the swatches before leaving for vacation, I’m really sorry.  This is lovely in person, and I promise you, it will look amazing and won’t give you lobster hands in real life.

Macro time!

This polish is up for preorder RIGHT NOW! (And will remain up for preorder until August 20, 2016 at 11:59pm EST.)  It’s $8.50 in full size and $5 for a mini!
