Brand Challenge: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer


BEGL swatch

Hello readers,
Today I have next installment of my shop my collection series to share with you. For the last few weeks I've been picking shades from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer to try out. Let's take a look at swatches.

The Stars Are Crystal Lights

The Stars Are Crystal Lights features a medium blurple crelly base filled with a flecked orange-pink iridescent shimmer. The formula was easy to work with though a bit sheer. After three coats my nail lines still show through in bright lighting. This shade dries to a satin finish so top coat is recommended for shine. Photos show three coats of The Stars Are Crystal Lights with one coat of Essie Gel Couture top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

From Dusk To Dawn

From Dusk To Dawn features a deep blue jelly base filled with small iridescent glitters and flecks. The formula was easy to work with and built up to full coverage in three coats. This shade dries to a satin finish so I recommend top coat for shine. Photos show three coats of From Dusk To Dawn with one coat of Essie Gel Couture top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Lilac Blondes On The Beach

Lilac Blondes On The Beach features a pale cool-toned beige base filled with scatter holo shimmer and violet iridescent flecks. The formula was easy to work with and though I used three coats here, I think two will be enough for those with shorter nails of a less distinct nail line than me. This shade dries down to a matte finish so top coat is recommended for shine. Photos show three coats of Lilac Blondes On The Beach with one coat of Essie Gel Couture top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

In The Dawning Light

In The Dawning Light feature an aubergine purple base with a strong red-copper shimmer. This is one of those rare shades where the shimmer looks stronger on the nail than it does in the bottle. The formula was a bit sheer at first but built up to full coverage in three coats. This shade dries to a waxy finish so top coat is recommend for shine and to bring out the shimmer. Photos show three coats of In The Dawning Light with one coat of Essie Gel Couture top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

The Night Tears Us Loose

The Night Tears Us Loose is a deep teal leaning green holo. The formula on this was is excellent and super pigmented. I used two coats here, but had I not been anticipating shoving my hands under bright light box lights I would have left it at one. Photos show two coats of The Night Tears Us Loose with one coat of Essie Gel Couture top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.
