Baroness X Nail Lacquer Mermaid Silk Swatches and Review

**nothing to disclose**


Happy Sunday loves! It's been a busy weekend for me, but I wanted to share some gorgeous polish with you on this cool winter day! One of my favorite things are mermaids. I love love love all things mermaid related. So I of course had to snag a bottle of Baroness X Mermaid Silk when she rereleased it! Boy was I glad I did!
Isn't she just absolutely stunning?! That blue and that shimmer. Words cannot begin to describe how much I love this polish! Mermaid Silk has a holographic ocean blue base with turquoise shimmer and purple to gold shifting glass flecks. This polish is seriously so amazing. The formula was super easy to work with, zero issues with application. Swatches show three coats plus a glossy top coat.

Pictures don't do this baby any justice at all. The shimmer and the holo are just divine. Snagging the other revivals is high on my to do list! Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time my friends!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Destination Polish Collab: Hogwarts a Historyfeat. Ever After Polish Swatches and Review

**press sample**


Hey loves! Hope all is well. It's been a crazy week here, and USPS is not making things any better! Today I have this month's Destination Polish collab. It's a beautiful duo featuring Ever After Polish. Meet the Hogwarts a History duo!
This duo was based on this photo taken at the Harry Potter Studio Tour, where both Julie and Rachel visited this fall. This month's set came with two polishes and a wax melt. So let's get into some swatches!

The Next Great Adventure
The Next Great Adventure is a beautiful neon magenta with blue and pink microflakies. I may or may not have gasped when I put this on. The formula was fantastic, really easy to work with. Because of the microflakies, I made sure to wait for each coat to completely dry before going into the next. It dries to a satin matte finish, which is beautiful as is, but I prefer a glossy top coat. Swatches show two coats plus a glossy top coat. 



Mischief Managed
Mischief Manged is an ultramarine blue with purple and blue shimmers and scattered holographic. So stunning and sparkly. Formula was amazing, applied super easily and smoothly. Swatches show two coats plus a glossy top coat.

Wax Melt
Ever After provided a delicious smelling wax melt in this month's collab. The scent is Butterbeer, very Harry Potter! I used this while swatching and was amazed as how strong the scent was. It's the perfect amount without being overpowering. You definitely get great usage from one melt, as the next day I could still smell the Butterbeer. Totally made my day. 

Overall, this collab is amazing. Amazing interpretation of the photo by both Julie and Rachel. I can totally see myself wearing these a lot. Unfortunately, this duo is sold out now. USPS held part of the duo hostage and it didn't get to me until a week late. Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time my loves!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Destination Polish Duo feat. Firecracker Lacquer

**press sample**

It's Friyay!! I am so glad this week is over and so excited to share these beauties with you today! Each month, Julie from BEGL and a guest maker create a duo based off a photo one of them took. This month, the polishes are based off of this photo Julie took while at a Muse concert! Ok, enough chatter, let's take a look at these beauties!


This month's guest maker is Kendahl from Firecraker Lacquer. The duo releases today, October 28th, at 3:30 pm EDT in both shops for $20 shipped domestically and $20 plus prorated shipping fee for international ladies. Now that we got all the technical details out of the way, lets get into these swatches!


A-Muse-ing


First up is Firecracker Lacquers contribution, A-Muse-ing. She is a beautiful bright blue polish with hot pink micro flakies and pink and blue sparkles. I love how bright and vibrant this color is. The formula was fantastic, really easy to work with. The first coat was a tiny bit streaky, but nothing to worry about as the second coat fixed it all. Alternatively, thicker coats could remedy this as well. Swatches show two coats plus a glossy top coat. Fantastic job on this color!


Look to the Stars





Next up is Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer's contribution, Look to the Stars. She is a stunning black scattered holo with blue and green microflakies. Black holos are my weakness, and this polish does not disappoint. Super easy to work with and applied easily and smoothly. The sparkle is real with this baby. Swatches show two coats and a glossy top coat.

Also included in this duo is a packet of rhinestones (not shown) that you can use for nail art or whatever your heart desires! Overall, this duo is fantastic. Two classic colors with amazing formulas and sparkly surprises with every glance. If you haven't gotten one of these duos before, I suggest starting with this gem! Thanks for stopping by! I'll have lots of new pretties for you soon!
xoxo,
