Oh Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer...you make such shiny things. Even the restrained, subtle things are stunning. I already used this shade once before, in my failed HPB goldfish nail art, but I thought it could use a post of its own. It is such a bright, peppy shade...and with Fall settling on some parts of the world, a pop of color might be nice.
(promotional samples ahead)
This is a warm, oversaturated aqua blue jellyish with subtle pinkish flakes and a sprinkle of silvery holo sparkle. Because it is that kind of blue, it does have a slight skunk to it...which my brain associates with the best blues. I know...weird. But all the good, saturated blues have that faint skunk to them. I want to say it is because of the pigments...but I don't know. I'm not a golfer.
The formula isn't bad here, but in the high humidity it can be a bit troublesome. For these swatches, I used three coats and still has a few streaks...but for the aforementioned nail art, I used three thin coats and was completely opaque and happy. Weather really does make a difference guys. I dunno why more reviews don't mention the weather.
Even when it gives me trouble, I still love this shade. I mean, it is UV reactive...so I can forgive anything. What do you think? Are you ready for some more lively shades, or are you still enjoying the vamp?
