Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Restock!

First of all, I want to thank everyone who donated to I Need a Lighthouse for my depression awareness fundraiser.  I haven't had a chance yet, but I'm planning to see if I can get a total amount raised by everyone who participated.  The confirmations are in, and the winners have been announced over at my Facebook page.  So go check it out to see if you won!

Today's post is all about the Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Restock on Monday, 11/18 at noon eastern.  Here's a graphic of all of the polishes that will be making their final appearance on Monday.  I had intended to retire more shades, but I just didn't have the heart to do it yet.  The polishes below will all be available until they have sold out.  Once they're gone, though, they won't be coming back, so make sure to get the ones you really want before they disappear forever!

Now, let's focus on the newer polishes that will appear in the restock on Monday: the November Duo and the Winter Collection.  Get ready, this is going to be EXTREMELY picture heavy.  Click on the photos to see them larger and with more detail.

November Duo
The November Duo was originally put up on the store as a pre-order a few weeks ago.  Monday's restock, however, will be for the remaining polishes that are currently in my stock.  There will be very few of these polishes available, and this will be their final restock.  I really wanted to capture fall with these two polishes, so I went with colors that reminded me of the changing leaves - yellow and orange.  The names were derived from common occurrences at family gatherings for Thanksgiving.  MIL Induced Mimosas: because sometimes you just want a drink after hanging out with your in-laws.  Turkey Coma: because when the big meal is over and you're sitting on the couch watching football, all you want to do is take a nap.  So, let's take a look at the November Duo.

MIL Induced Mimosas is a Mimosa yellow polish with red and orange shimmers and red microflakies.  It goes on with full coverage in two coats.  I then topped it with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Turkey Coma is an orange jelly with orange and gold shimmer, orange, red, caramel, and yellow hexes and squares.  It also builds up to full coverage in about 2 coats.  Here, I've used Turkey Coma as one coat over an orange I made myself for stamping on all fingers except the ring finger, which is two coats of Turkey Coma alone.  I topped it off with KBShimmer's Clearly on Top.

For better photos, check out the lovely photos taken by Nina of Model City Polish here.  Also note, the November Duo is available as a set as well as individually.

Winter Collection
This year, I didn't want to do anything overtly holiday-ish.  I'm hoping to carry my winter collection over the next few months, so I wanted to make sure they were just icy enough to be wintry without screaming CHRISTMAS!  I also know that there are many people who don't celebrate Christmas, so I thought, why not do an entire line focusing on all things cold and icy!  Here are the fruits of my labor.

From left to right: Untrodden Snow, Electric Icicle, Toasty Warm, Frozen Ivy, Plum Tired of the Cold, Tacky Winter Sweater, Snowfall at Dusk, and Limited Edition Hypothermia.

December Duo
The December Duo is made up of Untrodden Snow and Electric Icicle.  Anyone who pre-orders the duo will receive a small glitter mix for topping your manis.  I know many people don't enjoy the giant shaped glitters, so this is a way for me to include those on the side for anyone who wants to use them.  Please note, the glitter mix is not intended to be added to polish.  Also note, this duo will not be available individually, which means that they come as a set of two.  If you pre-order the full collection, you will receive the glitter mix as well.

Untrodden Snow is a white based polish that achieves opacity in two coats, but I've worn it here with three coats for photos.  The white glows with a blue flash, blue shimmer, and blue micro flakies.

Electric Icicle is a clear based glitter topper with bright blue holo hexes, rainbow iridescent hexes and squares, silver holo hexes and tiny diamonds, and blue holo stars.  Worn best on top of Untrodden Snow, but I've also shown it as one coat over navy blue creme Cult Nails Time Traveler.  Both swatches show one coat of Electric Icicle over both undies with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

If you pre-order the duo on Monday, you will get a small glitter mix made up of white dots, diamonds, and snowmen, purple moons, teal dots, and pink snowflakes.

Toasty Warm
Toasty Warm is a vampy blackened red creme with irregularly shaped red glitters.  The red shimmers make the polish look like it has burning embers glowing at the center of the nail.  This is two coats alone with a thin coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Frozen Ivy
A deep green jelly with silver and green micro glitters.  This is two coats with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Plum Tired of the Cold
A blackened plum shimmer base packed with gold micro hexes, red hexes, diamonds, and circle glitters, wine and burgundy hexes, and black hexes and holo dots.  This shows one coat over Toasty Warm with a thin coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Tacky Winter Sweater
A light pink based polish with sapphire hexes, holo violet hexes, and holo bright pink hexes, diamonds, and dots, purple iridescent hexes, and light pink snowflakes.  Here, I've shown it at one coat over OPI My Very First Knockwurst except on the ring finger which is just two coats layered over itself.  All are topped with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Snowfall at Dusk
A periwinkle based polish with various shades of blue hexes, squares, and dots, blue-green iridescent hexes, and large white snowflakes.  Here, I have shown Snowfall at Dusk over two coats of Hot Looks BMX Bandit except on teh ring finger which is just two coats layered over itself.  All are topped with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Limited Edition Hypothermia
This limited edition polish is only available for those who purchase the entire Winter Collection!  Hypthermia is a dark purple linear holographic polish with vivid purple shimmer.  This is three coats with KBShimmer Clearly On Top.  Most of these photos are taken indoors with artificial lighting.  The last two photos are taken under the light of my handy dandy ice maker.

So, there you have it!  Don't forget, these will all be up for pre-order on Monday, 11/18, at noon eastern!  Since it's a pre-order, please be patient with shipping.  It may take up to two to three weeks for these all to ship.  Which is your favorite?  Are you as excited as I am about this collection?
