Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer; Something is Coming Collection

Evening dears!  How was your weekend?  Mine was pretty good, a mix of busy and relaxing.  I'm watching Halloween shows with the kids right now.. Aside from that I am just catching up on my blog, getting ready to do some swatching.  Tonight I have the new BEGL Halloween collection for you.  It's inspired by a great show, Stranger Things.  Season 1 was so good, I can't wait for season 2!  Did you watch Stranger Things on Netflix?  If you're a fan of spooky and haven't seen this yet I highly suggest you set aside a day for Netflix and chill before the new season starts!  The Something is Coming collection will be available on 10/24 at 3:30pm EDT, prices range from $8 to $12.  This is a limited release launch and it's unclear if Julie will re-release them again in the future.  One thing I am sure of is that BEGL reformulated their base and you'll get the same great coverage with a thinner polish to work with.  I really liked the new formula and found it very easy to work with. Ok, let's jump in and check it out!

I had to start with this one first, Eleven's favorite food.  Eggos? is a peach leaning baby pink crelly with green to bronze to red shifting shimmer and red/gold/green shifting micro glitters.  I like how dainty this polish is, much like Eleven's dress.  Great formula, great application.  I used 3 coats and finished with topcoat.  





Something Hungry for Blood is a a bright red packed with copper shimmer and red, blue and gold microflakies.  This is a perfect blood red with a touch of glowy finish.  This is a perfect match to the color of the show's title.  Great formula and application.  I used 2 coats and finished with topcoat.





Curiosity Door is a blackened navy blue jelly with turquoise glass flecks and a green to teal to blue shifting shimmer.  This is a beauty!  Love the darkened color, love the pops of color.  Awesome formula, awesome application.  I used 2 coats for full coverage, finished up with topcoat.  





And the last polish in the collection is Keep These Lights Up.  It's a black jelly base with scattered holo pigment and rainbow colors.  Aside from the holo pigment there are silver holo glitters, silver/white and blue microflakies, fuchsia/copper/lime shifting flakies and green-blue/fuchsia/gold color shifting flakies.  Lots going on in this one but I definitely get that string of Christmas lights feel with this polish.  I actually love the dark, spookiness of this polish, but think that it'll also be perfect for Christmas or a NYE mani. Fabulous formula and application.  3 coats plus topcoat.
