Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer; Previous Releases & Miscellaneous Polishes

Morning beauties!  I'm finally going up for some air, Spring days have me pretty swamped with kids activities.  So here's the much delayed BEGL post I promised you.  The great news is that these are available today and there are so many fabulous shades, I'd suggest grabbing a note pad to jot down which you really want in your polish-loving life.  Anywho, the majority of the polishes in this post are re-releases so it's a great time to shop if you missed out on any of them the first go around.  Ready to jump in and see swatches?  Then lego!

Before we jump in let me use mention that all the pictures in this post were taken outside in direct sunlight.  Those taken in shade are noted as such.  
Up first I have Wash Away What's Past from the May 2016 Magic 8 Box.  This one was a real stunner!  I love taupe shades and this one is perfection with that pink shimmer.  Formula and application were both great.  I used 2 layers for full coverage and topcoat to finish.

Split The Night is a steely grey holo with fuchsia sparkles.  I really enjoy this darker shade of grey, and the holo works well with it.  Another great formula  2 layers needed for full coverage, topcoat to finish.

I Could See Them Too is a black micro glitter with holo sparkles.  You can use this polish on it's own or as a topper.  I have it done both ways to show you.  Formula and application were both good.  Removal was a bit of a pain and I ended up with glitter everywhere.  I used 3 coats here, on it's own, to show you what it looks likes solo.  Topcoat to finish.

I Could See Them Too over a red creme.  Totally different look!  I used 1 coat.  I had good coverage but the bas color still shine thorough.  



When The Night Grows Cold is a Robin's Egg blue with blue to parley shimmer.  I love the shimmer, it's so lovely!  I did find this one applied a bit unevenly but not so much that it's totally noticeable.  I ended up with 3 layers and topcoat.

More blue for you blue lovers!  A Long Time Ago Tomorrow is a vibrant blue full of blue flecks. I really liked everything about this polish; the formula, color, finish.  It's a win all around.  Formula and application were both great also.  I used 3 coats, as you can see there is the slightest visible nail line.  I finished with topcoat.   






But wait!  There's more blue!  I think blue might be Julie's favorite color.  We've got a special encore edition of The Siren's A Calling.  It's a deep teal, with blue shimmer.  It's a gorgeous, rich shade that'll be great for any season.  Formula and application were both great.  I used 2 coats for opacity and topcoat.

In the Dawning Light is my favorite of the bunch.  It's a smoky purple with red shimmer.  Totally stunning.  I totally plan to rock this shade all year round, especially this Summer and Fall.  It'll be a fabulous date night color.  Formula and application were great.  Opaque and creamy, great coverage.  I used 3 coats to reach full shimmer potential and topped it off with glossy topcoat.  






*shade*

Last but not least is Set Me on Fire in the Evening, a creamy cherry red.  It's super opaque and glossy and a classic red.  Formula and application were awesome.  2 coats for full coverage.  Topcoat isn't necessary, but if you want more high shine you could add a layer.
