Baroness X has gone out for the holiday of love this year. She has this bright, loud, happy trio for the noisier folk (like me) and something a little more sophisticated and mature that I'll share tomorrow. Today, let's check out the crazier shades of love.
(promotional samples ahead)
Go Through Fire
This is a bright cool creamy neon pink with a holo twinkle and a gold shimmer. It is crazy-bright, and totally off-the-wall when it comes to your typical Valentine's pink. Of course, I adore it. It was wonderfully opaque in two coats.
Crazy in Love
Ok, so if you feel like you are lacking in the romanticism then this is for you. A lustily full glitter topper stuffed to the gills with hearts, micro circles, small hexes all inside a shimmering iridescent base. Wow. I used two very thin coats for these pictures below...and yeah. I am itching to see how it will look when it is sponged on!
Hold Up the Sky
This is a pale turquoise jelly holo, filled with twinkling holo glitters. It is the perfect pan-seasonal shade. It is totally appropriate for all occasions...at least I think so. I used two medium coats here, but I think three thin coats would be best.
I have to admit that I had a tiny hand in this collection. Not in the designing nor the color direction...but the names. As some of you know, I'm a huge video game fan. Well...Fallout 4 came out for the Playstation 4 in November and I finally got my hands on it post-Christmas. There is a song that is in the new game, and it's predecessor, by Billie Holiday that I absolutely love. The Baroness and I were chatting one day, and she mentioned not being able to come up with good names for her Valetine offerings...so I sent her a link to the song from the game. It was just perfect!
Check it out!
And there it is. I am always happy to sneak a little bit of nerdery into your normal lives! Especially since this collection is so pretty and wearable, even if you don't like video games.
This collection is available in mini size (which I have here and adore) and the full size. Which shade is your favorite?
such pretty polishes. and i LOVE that song, although i grew up on the natalie cole version. i don't play video games much, but i love listening to the fallout soundtracks while my boyfriend plays...he always thinks it's funny that i know most of the songs' lyrics and sing along with themReplyDelete
this song is the bestttt!Delete
And yeah, these days Im knitting whilst the husband plays.
Pretty polishes! Love how well they can pair together!ReplyDelete
Beautiful trio! Perfect to transition into spring tooReplyDelete
I want all three of them! Budget be damned!ReplyDelete
Such adorable shades! That topper is hella cute.ReplyDelete
I had to buy a previous Baroness X polish because of one of your swatches! It was a purple jelly with glitters.....forget the name. I simply adore Go Through The Fire.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I love the blue especially... I love those polishes that make you feel like you could just dive right in!ReplyDelete
How great that you got to help name these pretty polishes.ReplyDelete
Very pretty! I haven't tried these polishes yet but they are lovely!ReplyDelete
Ugh that pink is SO perfect!!!ReplyDelete
Hold Up the Sky is stunning!! I love it!ReplyDelete
Go Through Fire speaks to me!ReplyDelete
Unf! I feel like I need to just sign over paychecks to Demi!ReplyDelete
Hold up the Sky is a beauty!ReplyDelete
This is an incredible trio, I can't even pick a favorite.ReplyDelete
WOW these are gorgeous! I can't get over how bold and bright Go Through Fire is!ReplyDelete
That pink though *oomph*. And I actually like her mini sizes. Mainly because they don't look much like minis.ReplyDelete
That topper is so cute! The blue is my fav though. :)ReplyDelete
Really loving Go Through Fire! I can't get enough hot pinkReplyDelete
