Good evening! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty nice, no rushing around, no real "things" going on. I went for a long walk with my mom and then to brunch for her birthday. It was nice. Now I'm chillaxing at home. So I figured I'd get a post going on while I'm all relaxed and zen - sending you those vibes while you read.
Let's jump in to the post featuring the brand spanking new Dreamland Lacquer collection, Star-Crossed Lovers/Valentines 2019 collection. 4 of Noelie's favorite pairs of star-crossed lovers are honored in this collection. Star-Crossed Lovers will be available 1/18 at 2pm for a 48 hour pre-order window. They'll be $10 each or $40 for the full set. After the pre-order they will be $11 each. You'll also be able to purchase the St. Nick trio and Tornado Skies II at this time. So let's check out the polish!
A Perpetual Sunrise was inspired by Carol and Therese from Carol. I am not familiar with these lovers so I don't have anything to say about that. But I can tell you that the polish itself is gorgeous. It's a taupe base with pink and gold flakes, copper shimmer and holo flakes. Such a beauty! Great formula, easy application. 3 thin coats and topcoat to finish.
Where Bluebirds Sing was inspired by Jack and Ennis from Brokeback Mountain. I do remember this movie and the stir it caused when it came out. And I remember wanting them to be happy together. But I don't recall how it ended since I only saw it the once and so long ago. But I think Noelie captured the spirit of the characters well with this denim blue jelly filled with holo micro flakes, blue iridescent flakes and aqua shimmer. Absolutely stunning. 3 thin coats for almost full coverage, topcoat to finish.
You Were the Song All Along was inspired by Mimi and Roger from Rent. Another movie/musical that I haven't seen so I really can't comment on the connection to the polish. But again, I can tell you just how amazing the polish is! Just look at it! It's a juicy red-berry jelly filled with gold iridescent flakes, red/green aurora shimmer and holo pigment. It's squishy and shiny and the best color! I really adore this polish. No issues with formula or application. 2 thin coats plus topcoat.
And lastly, we have Far From the Shallows Now inspired by Ally and Jackson from A Star is Born. I haven't seen this yet but plan to. And I love the song! And I love the polish! We have a stunning thermal full of iridescent flakes and aurora shimmer. You'll see turquoise when warm and a darker teal-blue when cold. Love it! Did I already say that? This is actually my favorite of the collection, especially with the matte topcoat. Fabulous formula and application. 3 thin coats plus topcoat.
