Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer-Mega Review!

 *Press Samples
Hi polish friends, happy Friday!  I hope the week has been treating you well.  A big thank you to everyone who has reached out to me privately and on social media asking me how I'm doing.  I am currently one week out from surgery, pretty bored, still in pain (but I'm a really slow healer), and not sleeping at all.  My current daily highlight is streaming the 90s game show Supermarket Sweep on the tv when my husband gets home and yelling out the answers and at the contestants :)  I also usually have a cat on me at all times, like right now :)

Today I am excited to share with you five polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, which is an Indie brand that I just love the name of!  Julie, the creator, has many new releases and restocks this month so I will be mentioning the specific information for each polish below to keep it nice and simple.  I can't wait to show you these beauties!

2000 Years-

Holy crap!  Do you see this???  This is one of the coolest polishes I have ever seen.  2000 years is a brand new polish in the Doctor Who Collection and it's part of the Gents of Doctor Who.  This polish is inspired by Rory Williams (Pond) and it's a microglitter polish in a clear base.  The colors in the microglitter consist of blue, silver, purple, and aqua.  Besides this polish being absolutely breathtaking, it's opaque in two coats.  It's made to dry textured but I added a coat of topcoat to make it shiny. 

Release information- October 26th, 3:30 pm edt

Noticing Face-

Like the polish above, the next polish also is a newly released polish from the Gents of Doctor Who Collection and also like the polish above, it is a breathtaking polish.  This polish is inspired by Craig Owens and it's a deep violet jelly polish with gold, blue, and purple holo microglitters.  I love that the holo microglitters really stood out against the base and don't get lost at all.  The formula was great on this polish and even with it being a jelly, I used two coats with topcoat below.

Release information- October 26th, 3:30 pm edt

Newly Impassioned Soul-

This polish is part of the Fan Favorites and it is the epitome of a Barbie pink in a bottle....and I love it :)  Barbie would definitely have some shoes in this shimmery pink.  This polish is a hot pink crelly with pale green flakes.  The polish was on the sheer side and does dry matte but it was easy to work with.  I used three coats with topcoat below.

Release information-Available now

If You're a Seascape-

Okay, the next one has a little disclaimer.  I don't color edit my photos at all, the color of the polish is the color is showed up on me.  So this polish is a coral holo, but as you can see below, it leans very rosy, pinky/purple on me.  I'm not quite sure why that happened but I swear this is what it looks like in the bottle to me :)

If You're a Seascape is actually a coral holo with strong pink shimmer, on me it looks like a pink/purple holo with strong pink shimmer.  The formula was great on this one and very opaque.  I did notice this one dried semi-matte so I used two coats with topcoat below.

Release information-Available now

Watch the Walls-

Last up is an ultra cute glitter mix that has a lot of personality.  Watch the Walls has a base of iridescent blue/purple/pink shifting shimmer which is something I haven't really seen before and it also includes neon pink, hot orange, watermelon, neon yellow, neon blue, holo blue, holo red, holo purple, large red dots, large pink butterflies, and tiny orange stars.  Fun right?  

I loved how packed the shimmery base was because it really covered the nail fully without having to work at it.  I also didn't have to dig for any glitters, not even the butterflies, they came out of the bottle easily.  I used one coat over OPI Dim Sum Plum and followed up with topcoat.

Release information-Available now

Overall I was pleased with every single polish and had no complaints with any of them.  My hands down favorites were the first two, 2000 Years and Noticing Face, they are absolutely stunning, seriously, they are stunning.  Let me know what you think of these polishes down below.

  1. Holy crud, 2000 Years is amazing!! A great polish for Rory!

  2. These are gorgeous! Agree, 2000 Years is stunning!

  3. Omg omg omg!!! Thank you for the amazing review! And I cannot believe how pinky/purple Seascape looks on you! It's amazing how complexion can really change the look of a polish :) Thank you again for the review, I really appreciate it!

  4. Holy poop that microglitter though!!!

  5. I'm definitely going to have to pick up 2000 Years and Noticing Face! They both look GORGEOUS on you!

    I hope you heal well from your surgery and that your doc releases you sooner rather than later, at least to do some activity. Did you have it done laparoscopically? I've heard it's easier to heal from that way, but I don't know as I had mine done 6 months before they started doing them that way. lol I'm recovering from surgery myself right now as well. Can't wait til Tues when I go in for my 3 week follow-up check up. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that all goes well for you at your next checkup appointment!

  6. Oh the BEGL blues and purples always get me! :) Beautiful swatches!!

  7. Glad you are feeling better. Remember you are healing from the inside out. Be gentle with yourself.
