Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer; Side A of the Dad's Mixtape Collection

Good afternoon dears!  I've got some new Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer to share with you today!  This is Side A of the Dad's Mixtape collection.  Inspired by classic rock songs that Julie grew up listening to with her dad.  Pssst, there will be a Side B coming in December.  Side A of Dad's Mixtape Collection will be available as a pre-order today (9/28) at 3:30pm EDT.  The pre-order ends on 10/1 at 11:59pm EDT.  The fill size bottles will be $8.50 - $12 each, the minis will be $5 - $6.  You can get the entire set also; full size is $37.50, mini size is $21, not including shipping.  I did some speculating as to which songs inspired the shades so enjoy the links to the songs, whether I was right tor wrong...they're still some good classic rock jams.  So let's not waste any more time and jump in to see the swatches!

Macros of 3/4 polishes from the Side A of the Dad's Mixtape Collection. I usually don't take macros of cremes.  
Thrill Me To the Marrow, which I assume is inspired by the Crosby Stills and Nash Judy Blue Eyes.  Great song!  And the polish is beautiful!  It's a lavender leaning taupe creme.  Formula and application were both fantastic. I did find it dried a bit flat so you definitely want topcoat for the most glossy finish.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat.




Again I'm guessing here but I believe Best Selling Show is inspired by David Bowie's Life On Mars.  I also can't help but think of AHS Freak Show when Elsa Mars sand this song.  I do miss her on AHS.  Sniff sniff.  Anywho, Bowie is my boyfriend and I love anything he does.  Best Selling Show is a Bright Coral with blue shimmer and blue microflakies.  Such a pretteh, juicy coral!  Formula and application were nice.  It was a little sheer, but 3 coats built up well!  I finished with topcoat.  





A Love Such As This is a strawberry hot pink with copper shimmer.  And I have no idea which song this could possibly be so I won't even try to guess on this one.  But I will tell you this shade of pink is perfection!  Love the full coverage, jelly-like formula.  Application was great too.  I used 3 coats for full coverage and topcoat.  





Rounding out the collection is Deep Blue Dream.  It's a sapphire blue jelly packed with green shimmer, silver ultra holo glitter and silver holo flakes.  I *think* this one is inspired by Love Her Madly by The Doors.  This color and finish is amazing.  It's like gazing into a sparkly blue ocean.  Formula and application were both awesome.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat to finish.
