Ohay y’all! There’s a super neat trio releasing today from 3 fantastic makers and I’ve got some of it to share with you fine folks! The USPS may or may not have eaten the other packages, so swatches for the other two will come later in the week, but for now, I’ve got a STUNNING shimmery creme from Northern Star Polish ready to share. :D (Btw, did y’all miss seeing Kristin on my blog? ME TOO!)
Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer has been releasing some beautiful duos based on different destinations. For May, they decided to switch it up a bit by adding a third maker (YAY) and I’m loving it. They based the trio on this photo that Kristen of NSP took while visiting Chicago a while back:
Each time I look at it, I get this sense of serenity and ugh. I love it. I can picture myself there, coffee in hand, wrapped up in something warm, standing next to the most perfect human made for me, Mark. It’s perfect, really. We’re only about 4 hours away from where we’re at now. I think a trip needs to happen!
Anywho! Kristen made a polish that’s the perfect representation of the photo, I think. This is Make a Wish and it’s one of the first creme polishes that I actually like! No, love. The formula is incredible, honestly. Usually I’m not fond of them because they always seem to look either smudged or scuffed up, regardless of the top coat. The finish with this one, though, changed that. It’s still deliciously creamy, but the shimmer added another level of depth that just rounds out the nail polish.
My photos show it with two coats (and top coat), but it’s honestly a single-coat polish if you use slightly thicker coats. It was wonderful, though. One stroke of the polish and damn near full opacity. I’m in love, y’all.
It was described as a stormy blue creme with turquoise and charcoal flakes. To be 100% honest, I did not see many flakes, but I can see them in my photos now. I think the shimmer just caught my eye and distracted me more than anything. :P
I mean, c’mon. Isn’t that shimmer wonderful?
Bah, so pretty! I can’t wait to share the other two with you guys as well!
The trio just launched in each of the maker’s shops (I’ll put all of the links below!) and is available for purchase now at $30 shipped domestically or $30 with prorated shipping for our international polish addicts!
As always, I greatly appreciate y’all stopping by to read this! Be sure to let me know if you snag one of these sets! I’d love to see the polishes on your nails :)
