Shades of Purple Nails

Purple holographic nail polish

Girly Bits makes the most gorgeous purples and, if I'm not mistaken, Pam (the woman behind Girly Bits) is a purple-lover herself. So, it makes sense that she's my go-to for the perfect purple polish.

Two of the three polishes here are from Girly Bits. Here is the breakdown...
Index and Middle: Girly Bits Past and Present (2 coats)
Ring: Chaos & Crocodiles Inglenook (2 coats)
Pinkie: Girly Bits Believe the Impossible (3 coats)

I finished off with top coat.

I took a million pictures because I loved this combination and I really wanted to capture the many faces of each of these nail polishes. They are all so complex with added shimmer and shifts.

Different Dimension - When In Doubt, Wing It Out

Different Dimension When In Doubt, Wing It Out

I haven't worn black nails in a long time. I thought it was a good day to get dark.

Different Dimension When In Doubt, Wing It OutDifferent Dimension When In Doubt, Wing It Out

When In Doubt, Wing It Out is a black linear holographic with black holo micro-glitter. I am wearing 2 coats plus top coat. i actually used 2 layers of top coat because the micro-glitters make it the teeniest bit bumpy and I hate bumpy nails. If you weren't OCD like me then one coat is more than enough.

When In Doubt, Wing It Out is exclusive to the February 2017 Holo Hookup Box which mean it's no longer available for sale which is unfortunate because it's beautiful. I found my bottle second-hand so I am sure you could too if you are so inclined.

On my thumb I decided to wear Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer (get ready for the longest nail polish name ever) The Last Time I Tortured Someone, They Didn't Even *Have* Chainsaws. It's an incredible one coat wonder black linear holo with red flecks and shimmer. It's AMAZING.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Every Moment Lasts a Day

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Every Moment Lasts a Day BEGL

I really should have posted this on St. Patrick's Day but it kind of sneaked up on me and I forgot all about it. It's now Spring and green is more than appropriate for the coming days. But, with the gold shimmer this really does look like a polish fit for a leprechaun.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Every Moment Lasts a Day BEGLBlue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Every Moment Lasts a Day BEGL

Every Moment Lasts A Day is described as a "leaf green crelly packed with copper shimmer and gold microflakies." I am wearing 2 coats plus top coat but I probably should have gone with 3 as you can sort of see my nail line in the pictures with flash. Oops! I don't have a problem with nail line like some do. This is another perfectly formulated polish packed with shimmer and microflakies. LOVE!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Light That Shadows in the Night

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Light That Shadows in the Night

Yellow nail polish is another controversial colour. Like orange, lots of people are leery to wear yellow. I think it's an acquired taste but this BEGL polish makes it easy to love yellow. This is packed with so many goodies and yet it's a super smooth application and finish. Yay!

Light That Shadows in the Night is described as a "sunny yellow jelly packed with gold ultra-holographic microglitters and red-bronze-copper UCC flakies." I really love how this looked even on my super pale hands. It's so beautiful and the UCC flakies are such a nice accent.

I am wearing 2 thin coats plus top coat. Like I mentioned earlier, this smoothed out really well on its own and the top coat just helped make everything glossy and extra smooth. Look at all the pretty things inside this bottle!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Autumn Winds Blow

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Autumn Winds Blow

Orange nail polish DOES NOT get any love. Except maybe at Halloween. I will admit that orange nail polish is not something that I would normally grab but I am really loving Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer's take on orange. Behold.... Autumn Winds Blow.

Autumn Winds Blow is described as a "pumpkin orange jelly with red, gold, and green microflakies." This is a really beautiful orange nail polish and it applies really beautifully. This nail polish was (obviously) released in the Fall but I think it will look lovely in the Spring.

I am wearing 2 coats plus top coat. I love how obvious the flakies are. They really pop as you can see in the nail swatches and the bottle macro below!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Flaming Fields

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Flaming Fields

A few days ago I shared a pretty pink called Clear My View which is part of the Room with a View Collection from Fall 2016.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Flaming FieldsBlue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Flaming Fields

Flaming Fields is described as a "wine red with blue to gold to green shifting glass flecks." This polish has red wine written all over it and it is so different in each lighting situation. I think I captured that in these pictures pretty well. 

I am wearing 2 coats plus top coat. I really love this one. It's very unique in my collection.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Clear My View


A few weeks ago I was gushing over Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Deep Blue Dream. Today I have Deep Blue Dream's step-sister: Clear My View. I say step-sister and not sister because this doesn't have the one-coat wonder formula that Deep Blue Dream had nor does it have the ultra-holo glitters. 


Clear My View is described as a "bright pink with holographic microflakies and purple and aqua shimmers." I really love this pink and it applied so well in 2 coats. My pictures don't capture the purple and aqua shimmers and I can't remember seeing them too well on my nail but when I look at the bottle I do see the shimmer.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Shades of Taupe and Green


I don't normally gravitate toward more neutral and earthy shades but, for some reason, I was feeling adventurous. I combined three different Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers into one really pretty manicure.



Index and middle: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Wash Away What's Past (Magic 8 Box)
Ring: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer North from 9 3/4 (Destination Duo)
Pinkie: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Time and a River (Destination Duo)



I really love how well these nail polishes played with each other. When you look closely (see below), you can see how complex and beautiful these shades are. That's what I love about BEGL polishes, they're so multi-dimensional! It bodes well with my nail polish adhd.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Noticing Face



Despite what I keep telling myself, it's still Winter. I took a break from all my wishful Spring shades to wear something dark and deep. Noticing Face from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer is so freaking juicy and vampy. The combination is killer. Noticing Face is inspired by Doctor Who and it's described as a "deep purple jelly with gold, blue, and purple holo microglitters."

I am wearing 3 thin coats and top coat. This is a new favorite vampy shade. I absolutely love it.



And because I have so many untried polishes, I wanted to wear something else on my thumb. I went with Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Siren's Spring Vamp Chic. How appropriate! Oh wait, it's not Spring yet. Grrr.
