Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer: Kaffir Lily and Queen Lime Rose - Swatches & Review

I'm back with more Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer swatch spam! This time, I have the perfect polishes for spring! Spring and summer collections have got to be my favorite out of the year. They're bright, colorful, and just so pretty! Don't get me wrong, I love rocking those rich dark fall colors, but I'm always drawn more to the brighter shades. What is your favorite season for collections? Check out BEGL swatches below!

Recently, Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer was part of a huge box called Indie Mani Bunny Box (hosted by Ellagee) in which 15 different indie brands participated! Each box came with 11 full size polishes, 6 mini polishes, and a bunch of assorted manicure extras, hand care items, and nail art goodies. All for $80 (plus shipping for US and Intl.). Isn't that an awesome deal!? The box went on sale not that long ago and sold out in minutes. But Ellagee will be restocking only 4 more boxes tomorrow (she has a link on her site with spoilers). For the 4 people that are able to get the box, congrats for you! But for the rest of you, that didn't, you're in luck because Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer will be offering her contributions to the box at her storefront this Sunday, March 29th at 3:30 PM Est! 

For the Indie Mani Bunny Box, BEGL included 9 butterfly water decals which have a black outline and body and purple/green/blue wings. She will have these available for 9/$1. Onto the polish...

Queen Lime Rose Zinnia is a pastel lime green with gold to pink shifting shimmers. I used 2 coats with topcoat. I'm totally lovin' this shade of green. It's kind of like a pistachio green. I wasn't able to capture the shimmer too well on my nails, sorry! But it's there and it adds such a nice touch to it. The formula and application was super smooth. It will be available in full($12) and mini($6) size.

Kaffir Lily is a medium pink linear holo creme with pink to gold shifting glass flecks. I used 2 coats with topcoat. Oh man, this shade of pink is beautiful! So soft and feminine. It's perfect for spring! And the flecks make it that much more interesting. It went on really smoothly. Though this was only available as a mini size in the box, it will be available in full($12) and mini($6) on Sunday.

I really, really like these! They're just so pretty and perfect for spring. I wish I would have gotten the box because everyone's contributions are so cool. My low-buy is killing me! LOL These 2 polishes will be going on sale this Sunday, March 29th at 3:30 PM Est at Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer's storefront. Make sure to follow Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer on InstagramFacebookTwitter, and Pinterest.
