Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Spark in the Dark Collection

*press sample*



Hey there!  Today I have for you two beautiful polishes from the Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Spark in the Dark Collection.  This gorgeous collection will be releasing next month, and today I have for you The Years Have Been Short and Wanna Fall in Love Tonight.  Let's jump right in! 

The Years Have Been Short

     Outdoors without topcoat

The Years Have Been Short is a white tinted jelly base with white microglitter, silver reflective beads, blue/purple iridescent microglitters, strong blue shimmer, and a smattering of various shades of blue microglitters.  

     Indoors without topcoat

I used three coats of polish for full coverage.  You could also try layering it over an opaque base color such as white, light grey, or light blue.  You can definitely see the silver reflective beads in the indoor pictures.

Microglitters tend to dry slightly textured so I also used topcoat to smooth it out. Julie is known to make some amazing microglitters, and this truly does not disappoint.  I love the color combination and the silver reflective beads are really cool!

Wanna Fall in Love Tonight

     Indoors without topcoat

Wanna Fall in Love Tonight is a red-leaning purple with delicate golden red shimmer.  This dries to a satin finish so I have pictures with and without topcoat.

This polish was a little streaky on the first coat which is expected with satin finish polishes.  It leveled out and was completely opaque with two coats.  The formula was great and really easy to work with.

The red shimmer in this polish is absolutely beautiful.  Just look at it!  I am totally in love with this polish, and I don't have anything like it.

I really love both of these polishes, and the fact that they were different than any other polishes in my collection was a definite plus.  The formula and application on both were great.  I can't wait to get the rest of the collection when they're released next month.   

There will be 8 polishes total in the Spark in the Dark collection releasing on Monday, January 12th at 3:30pm in the BEGL Shop.  The full size set will be $67 or $37 for mini bottles.  A new limited edition Siren will also be releasing that day.  Please follow Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter.  

Thanks for reading!
