Blue-Eyed Girl Destination Duo: North from 9 3/4

This month’s Destination Duo is a collaboration with Paint Box Polish! The polishes were based on the photo below that Pam from Paintbox took at King’s Cross Station.



The Blue-Eyed Girl part of the duo is called North from 9 3/4
It's a taupe crelly packed with copper shimmer, silver flakies, and red to gold shifting microflakies.
I wore two coats with topcoat. It has a smooth easy formula and is super shimmery!

The other polish in the duo (not pictured) is from Paint Box Polish called Anything From the Trolley, Dears? It's a glitter topper with iridescent flakes, holo & charcoal flakies, red/gold shimmer, and red square glitters. In addition to the two polishes, the set also comes with a Paint Box Polish mani fizz scented like Butterbeer!

The release is scheduled as a preorder from 9/28 at 2:30PM CDT to October 1 at 10:59PM at both Paint Box Polish and Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer shops.

Literary Lacquers: Nailed Collection

The Nailed Collection is a collaboration between Literary Lacquers and romance author Opal Carew. The polish was released in tandem with Carew's new romance novel, "Nailed". The book sounds quite steamy based on what I read at the Amazon listing:

“Opal Carew gives readers a taste of the forbidden.” –Romance Reviews Today
“Carew brings erotic romance to a whole new level…she sets your senses on fire!” – Reader to Reader

The full polish collection and individuals are available now at Literary Lacquers Etsy shop.

As with all Literary Lacquers polishes, the application and formula were buttery smooth and easy peasy with little clean up. I am really fond of polishes like this that practically apply themselves.

Amy did a fantastic job creating the collection, it seems to go along with the book topic quite well! I enjoyed wearing them and I think you will too!
What do you think of the Nailed collection?

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer: Side A Dad’s Mixtape Collection

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer has created an unexpected palette of colors for her upcoming collection. Each polish in the Side A Dad’s Mixtape Collection was created with a classic rock song in mind. Julie's love of classic rock music began as a youngster, and she has been a huge fan ever since. Side B will be coming in December!

Julie warns that Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers are designed to be opaque in one to two coats, so they may need to be thinned to your desired consistency. I didn't find any of them overly thick or difficult to apply, the lightest color being the thicker of them.

Best Selling Show
Bright coral with blue shimmer and blue microflakies.
Two coats / topcoat
