Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Hey there!!!

It's Saturday! Man I am so glad this week is over.  It hasn't been one of the best ones ever, here's to hoping the next one is better.

I had originally planned on posting this last night, but life got in the way so here it is! I figured you wouldn't mind if I posted on a Saturday! Sidetone, I can't believe that it is going to be March tomorrow! Time is just flying by!!!!

So today I have three more polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer.  I have Void Stuff, Newly Impassioned Soul and Siren's Holiday Soirée. Which are all available right now at  Let's take a closer look shall we!

First up is Void Stuff, and according to the site it is a "deep teal/green linear holographic with blue to red shifting glass flecks".  I used two coats here, they were easy to apply, and I topped it with Glossy Glam.  This mani wore for DAYS.  I put this on before I left for vacation and I had it on for a long long time.

If you love pink, then make sure you get this one! This is Newly Impassioned Soul, the site says this is "a squishy hot pink crelly with green flakes".  This does dry to a satin finish, but I have it topped with Glossy Glam here.  I used three coats of Newly Impassioned Soul in the photos below.  I had no issues with application.  If you purchase this or already have it in your collection, the maker says to store this in a dark place because the pigments can be sensitive to light.

Last up is Siren's Holiday Soirée.  This is part of the limited edition Siren line, so go snag this now while you can if you want this one!  This is described as a "cherry red jelly, with purple-blue iridescent glitters and shreds, as well as matte neon pink, hot orange, and cherry red red glitters".  Even though this is a jelly, I only used two coats for the look here.  Topped with my favorite Glossy Glam of course!

I have loved every Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer  (aka BEGL) I have. So creative and beautiful!
If none of these tickle your fancy, there are plenty more up for sale (and preorder) that you may like so head on over!

Date Night Tips and Lips with Sally Hansen

Press Sample

Hi there!

How's your week going thus far? Well I certainly hope.  I for one, and still complaining about the snow.  It's ridiculous how much we have right now. It just keeps coming too.  Every day I play a very scary game of chicken trying to leave my road because I can't see around the corner!

Anyway!  On the the real reason you are here!  Today I have a super quick post featuring a lovely combo perfect for any date night!  Nothing sexier than red lips and nails I hear. Seems there are a lot of date nights happening, between Valentine's Day and the release of a certain steamy movie!  I am not usually a big red person, but both of these things are beautiful!  I have Sally Hansen Patent Gloss in the color Moto and the NYC Expert Last Lip Lacquer in the color Rockaway Ruby.

The Sally Hansen Patent Gloss is part of the new special effect line.  There are four shades and this is supposed to give you a high gloss patent leather appearance.  (There is also a Velvet Texture and Luxe Lace line).  The Patent Gloss line retails for $5.99.  Here I used two coats with no topcoat!  As you can see it is super shiny on it's own without the topcoat.  However, for extended wear time I do recommend applying your favorite topcoat!

Everyone looks good in a red lip!  This is Rockaway Ruby from the Expert Last Lip Lacquer collection.  It retails for $3.99, which is not too shabby! There are 12 shades in all so if this bright bold red isn't for you, then there is a good change they will have one that is.  This stuff is HIGHLY pigmented!  There isn't a discernible scent to it either, which is nice.  Standard doe foot applicator as well.

You can find both of these at your local drug stores or big box merchants that carry these brands!  I generally find these two at my local Rite Aid!

What do you think? Are red lips and nails in for a date?
