Press samples ahead!
Good evening, my lovelies! I’m sitting here, sipping on my homemade sangria from the 4th and watching iZombie, debating making some mac and cheese and having a sweet little tub journey. Yeah, that sounds like a damn good night. Though, I just discovered that there’s a hair splinter in the bottom of my food, and I’m not quite sure that I’ll make it through the night. Shoot, my nails are naked and nubby. What a shame. Just bury me with my collection, kay?
Whaaaaatever. While I’m sitting here, counting down until I expire, I want to at least show y’all Night Owl Lacquer‘s offering for the July Polish Pickup (Cocktails & Mocktails): Dragon Blood. If you’d like to see lots of pictures and read some of my silly babble, read on!
Lindsay loves neons, so of course, she had to go with a neon green for the Cocktails & Mocktails theme! She based it on the Dragon Blood cocktail of the same name by the Tipsy Bartender! (seriously love watching his videos, there are WAY too many of his recipes that I want to try for it to be socially acceptable.)
Dragon Blood; “a yellowy neon green base with bright green sparks and ultra chrome chameleon flakes that shift red/copper/gold/green.” So, when I saw this one, I honestly thought it’d be a bit sheer, just because of how light the shade is, but nope. It went on in almost one coat, and I only went back for a second because of my dark VNL. It’s delicious and vibrant but still broody, in a way, with the UCC flakes that transform it. My swatches show two thin coats plus top coat.
Isn’t it delicious? It’s absolutely perfect for the summer, and 10000000% embodies the drink. Which, by the way, if you wanna make it and sip on it, I can totally wait. Here, have the recipe:
COCKTAIL RECIPE :
1 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Bacardi
2 oz. Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz. Midori
I’m assuming that you just combine them, shake over ice, and then pour into a sugar-rimmed glass. Or something like that. I work from home and don’t leave my house. I have no earthly idea. Sounds good though, yeah? The italicized font makes this seem hella official, don’t it?
The July Polish Pickup will open on 7/7 at 11am EST. The order window will be open for four days with $3 flat rate shipping to the US and Canada. Dragon Blood will be available for $10.
For more photos and links on what’s releasing for preorder on Friday, you’re going to want to check out the Polish Pickup Pack on FB.
Don’t forget to check out the Night Owls Just Wanna Get Lacquered Up facebook group and Night Owl Lacquer’s instagram as well!
And that’s that! There’s going to be a ton of awesome offerings this month, but I really hope y’all snag this neon beauty up, it’s absolutely gorgeous.
Thanks for stopping by!
