Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers Release Information

Ok, so tonight's post will be mega-self serving.  If you're not into that, just skip tonight's post and come back tomorrow where it will be back to business as usual.  Tonight, I wanted to give you guys a heads up to the goings-ons over at Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers.  So, let's get down to it!

First, there will be a full restock of all current polishes, the Winter Collection, which you can see here, and the New Year's Duo on 1/1/2014 at 3:00 est.  The New Year's Duo is not a 10 bottle limited edition.  It will be available throughout the entire month of January.  There are still a few discontinued polishes available right now, but there aren't any guarantees that they'll still be there in two weeks!

Second, I will be restocking the final three polishes in the Holiday Limited Edition series tomorrow, 12/18/203, at 9:30 pm est.  The shop will be in maintenance mode until then so I can make sure everything is all cleaned up and ready to go.  Remember, there are only 10 bottles a piece for sale of these polishes, so grab them while you can!  Ok, let's take a look at them!

Guided by Starlight (Christmas)

Guided by Starlight is a white crelly polish packed full of silver and gold metallic and holographic glitters in hexes, squares, dots, diamonds, moons, and stars and a light dusting of iridescent glitters.  This polish is a bit thick by design in order to keep the larger glitters suspended, but you may want or need to add in a little bit of thinner.  This is three coats without undies, a layer of Lynnderella Glitter Tamer, and topped off with KBShimmer's Clearly on Top.  Surprisingly, this polish is a bit of a topcoat eater, so you may need a thicker layer of topcoat or an additional thin layer.  Dry time is average, and the larger glitters did require a bit of fishing.  Granted, my tester bottle is a mini, so the full sized bottles might not have the same issue.

Newborn Solstice Sun (Yule)

Newborn Solstice Sun is a deep ruby red jelly with silver and red holographic micro glitters.  This is two coats without undies, a coat of Lynnderella Glitter Tamer, and finally topped off with KBShimmer's Clearly on Top.  Dry time was average, and, as you can see, it reaches full opacity in two coats.  Reds tend to stain on me, both the skin around my nails and the nail itself, but NSS wasn't a stainer on me.  However, it's a definite topcoat eater, so be aware of that.  Dry time was quick, and the glitters were easy to spread.  I hate mini bottles because of their crap application, so I can't tell you if the base is too thick or not.  You may need to add in some thinner, though.

Matunda Ya Kwanza (Kwanzaa)

Matunda Ya Kwanza is a lightly purple tinted polish with a bright rainbow of glitters in all sorts of shapes and sizes.  You can use the dab method to get a more opaque look, or you can swipe across the nail for a more sparse look.  These photos show MYK as one coat over Color Club Pucci-licious on all fingers except the ring finger, which is three coats of MYK alone.  I added extra topcoat, Glitter Tamer and Clearly on Top, but it's not really necessary for this polish.  Dry time was a bit on the longer side, but that could be because I'm impatient and didn't wait long enough between coats.  Be aware, though, that if you wear it alone, as with most glitters, it will be a giant pain to remove.  

So, there you have it!  What do you think?  Did you guys enjoy this series of polishes?  If you miss out on the chance to purchase these polishes, they are their own prize in my New Year's giveaway!  Make sure you enter here!  Don't forget to follow my Facebook page, Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers Facebook page, and my Instagram, and remember to be over at BEGL headquarters at 9:30 pm est tomorrow night to purchase the remaining Holiday Limited Editions!
