Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Flaming Fields


A few days ago I shared a pretty pink called Clear My View which is part of the Room with a View Collection from Fall 2016.


Flaming Fields is described as a "wine red with blue to gold to green shifting glass flecks." This polish has red wine written all over it and it is so different in each lighting situation. I think I captured that in these pictures pretty well. 

I am wearing 2 coats plus top coat. I really love this one. It's very unique in my collection.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Clear My View


A few weeks ago I was gushing over Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Deep Blue Dream. Today I have Deep Blue Dream's step-sister: Clear My View. I say step-sister and not sister because this doesn't have the one-coat wonder formula that Deep Blue Dream had nor does it have the ultra-holo glitters. 


Clear My View is described as a "bright pink with holographic microflakies and purple and aqua shimmers." I really love this pink and it applied so well in 2 coats. My pictures don't capture the purple and aqua shimmers and I can't remember seeing them too well on my nail but when I look at the bottle I do see the shimmer.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Shades of Taupe and Green


I don't normally gravitate toward more neutral and earthy shades but, for some reason, I was feeling adventurous. I combined three different Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers into one really pretty manicure.



Index and middle: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Wash Away What's Past (Magic 8 Box)
Ring: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer North from 9 3/4 (Destination Duo)
Pinkie: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Time and a River (Destination Duo)



I really love how well these nail polishes played with each other. When you look closely (see below), you can see how complex and beautiful these shades are. That's what I love about BEGL polishes, they're so multi-dimensional! It bodes well with my nail polish adhd.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Noticing Face



Despite what I keep telling myself, it's still Winter. I took a break from all my wishful Spring shades to wear something dark and deep. Noticing Face from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer is so freaking juicy and vampy. The combination is killer. Noticing Face is inspired by Doctor Who and it's described as a "deep purple jelly with gold, blue, and purple holo microglitters."

I am wearing 3 thin coats and top coat. This is a new favorite vampy shade. I absolutely love it.



And because I have so many untried polishes, I wanted to wear something else on my thumb. I went with Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Siren's Spring Vamp Chic. How appropriate! Oh wait, it's not Spring yet. Grrr.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - V-Day 5.0 Prototype



Today I have an oldie BEGL Prototype from... I want to say... 2014? I can't remember when exactly or how I got into BEGL polishes but I know I was sort of late to the party by the time I bought my first. I think I got my first BEGL in 2013 and started obsessing over these perfect polishes in 2015. The formula is always so easy to work with and there is such an array of finishes and colours. I don't know how Julie does it but I'm glad she does. I'm always amazed by how innovate her polishes are.

V-Day 5.0 is a soft pinky lilac linear holo with a touch of golden (?) shimmer. I am wearing 2 coats, no top coat. I didn't think this would jive well with my skin tone but it works. For days when I want something a little more delicate, I'll look for this polish.

CrowsToes - Abracadabra


Sometimes I want my nails to be blindingly sparkly. Maybe it helps distract me from life's challenges or maybe it's some weird psychological condition. The jury is out on that one.



Abracadabra by CrowsToes is SUPER sparkly, SUPER holo, SUPER flaky. I'm loving it. I wasn't sure how to wear it so I layered it over Girly Bits Hocus Pocus on my index and middle finger and wore it on its own my ring and pinky. I think I like it best on its own because it's extra blinding that way. This was a Hella Holo Customs polish so it's no longer available except second-hand.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer and Contrary Polish Destination Duo



For the month of January, Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer teamed up with Contrary Polish for the monthly Destination Duo series. Inspired by a photo taken at the Sundance Festival, this duo consists of BLue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Special Selection and Contrary Polish Meet Me Under the Marquee.



Contrary Polish Meet Me Under the Marquee is described as a "Taupe jelly base with holo micro-flakes and various ultra-chrome flakes." I love how the flakes pop against the tape base. I used 3 thin coats plus top coat.



Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Special Selection is described as a "black cherry jelly with gold micro-flakes, gold holo micro-glitter, copper/gold/fuchsia and green/pink/gold ultra-chrome flakes." I am wearing 3 thin coats plus top coat. While it's packed with goodies, I only needed 1 coat of top coat to smooth it all out. This is totally stunning. Very elegant but so complex.
