Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Destination Duo Plus New Siren LE - Swatches & Review

I have just one more Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer post before I  go to bed! Along with the Fan Favorites Collection that Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer is releasing (review here), BEGL released a new addition to her Siren series, as well as a new Destination Duo, this time in collaboration with A Rhyming Dictionary! Swatches below!

Let's take a look at the new Siren first...

Siren's Summer Vacation is a "neon purple with turquoise, pink, and purple glass flecks." I wore 2 coats.

I absolutely love this polish! It is so bright and pretty! This might even be my favorite Siren that I've tired so far. The flakies are just gorgeous and the formula and application was so easy to apply. 

no top coat

And now the new Destination Duo...

This time, BEGL is collaborating with A Rhyming Dictionary Polish to bring you this awesome Destination Duo! They chose this picture of Godafoss, or Waterfall of the Gods which Morgan from A Rhyming Dictionary visited while in Iceland. This photo isn't hers, but she said that it was gorgeous in person.

Foss Idols is a "deep teal crelly with silver and pink shimmers." I wore 3 coats with a top coat.

This was quite surprising when I started applying it because I thought it was black, but it's actually a really dark, dark teal. The formula was a bit thick so I added a few drops of polish thinner and it was fine after.

A Rhyming Dictionary Polish Heathendom is a "medium blue polish with linear holo and silver flakes. I wore 2 coats.

This was another polish that I couldn't capture the holo because of the weird weather here in Cali today. But the holo is really strong! I really like the silver flakies too. The formula and application was perfect! I encountered no issues.

The duo will also include ten of these rainbow decals!

This Destination Duo box will be available for $20 shipped domestically. You can purchase it from both BEGL or ARD shops, links below. But only BEGL will be providing international shipping at a prorated shipping fee plus $20 for the box.

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer: The Fan Favorites Collection- Swatches & Review

Hey guys! I have a pretty big post for you you all today so we'll skip the intro and dive right into the swatches! 

The Fan Favorites collection is available right now for preorders and will be available until July 1st at 3:30 PM EST. The whole set will be available for $102.50 for full size or $55 for mini bottles, plus shipping. Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer offers both US and international shipping! Onto the swatches.

Siren's Birthday Sprinkles is a "clear base with sky blue holo, navy holo, royal blue and Canadian blue gltters with blue microflakies." I wore 1 thin coat over Monster's Tea at Tiffany's.

This is such a pretty glitter topper! It reminds me of the ocean or mermaids! The formula and application was great!

Sordid End is a "periwinkle with blue to purple shift." I wore 2 coats with top coat.

My picture is a bit off color-wise.It's a bit more purple-y. I love it. The formula and application was great!

Fare the Wind is a "purple holo with blue to purple shift and red shimmers." I wore 2 coats with no top coat.

Sun Shot

This polish is so gorgeous! It doesn't just have holo though, it also has some really pretty shimmer in there to make it pop more. It went on like butter, super smooth.

Sun Shot

Here's a macro showing the blue flakies in it. I edited this pic a lot to be able to show them so it's definitely not color accurate.

Wanna Fall in Love Tonight is a "purple with glowing red shimmer." I wore 2 coats with top coat.

This is definitely my favorite from the collection! It is so gorgeous! You need to get it. The formula and application was perfect. It went on like butter.

I Still Adore is an "orchid pink holo with gold to pink shift." I wore 2 coats with no top coat.

So for some reason while I was swatching today, It just started raining over here in SoCal. It was super sunny and really hot all day so I have no idea where that came from. So I wasn't able to capture this in the sun unfortunately. But the holo is really strong! I love the flakies in this one!

Cherry Blossom is a "baby pink with aqua to silver shift." I wore 3 coats with top coat.

This pink is so pretty! I'm not a huge fan of how it looks on me though. I just have this love/hate relationship with light colors. It makes my cuticles looks really dark for some reason. But I love how the shimmer is really visible on your nails unlike other brands *cough cough* Essie.

Monster's Tea at Tiffany's is a "tiffany blue with green to red shift." I wore 2 coats with top coat.

Could this be any prettier? Love it! The shimmer in it is very strong and is easily visible on you nails. The formula and application was great!

Untrodden Snow is a "white with blue flash and blue shimmers." 3 coats with top coat.

Sun Shot
Another great soft shade! The blue flakies are a lot stronger then is't showing. The formula and application was really easy to work with.

Bound to the City Life is a "dark teal jelly with teal, turquoise, purple, and blue holo microglitters." 2 coats with top coat.

This is another favorite of mine. I love the different colored micro glitters in there! The formula and application was perfect.

Sun Shot, that's why the color looks different. 

Fierce and Free is a "medium orange jelly packed with gold, orange, red, and berry pink holo and metallic microglitters and small glitters and pink to gold shifting glass flecks." 2 coats with top coat.

Though BEGL describes this as an orange jelly, it's definitely more red. I love this one! I got full coverage with just 2 coats and it went on so smoothly. It's definitely a favorite from the collection.

Overall, I really loved this collection! I literally, never have any complaints with any BEGL polishes. The formula is always spot on. There were a few here that I could have only used 1 coat but I always like doing at least 2. I defintly recommend BEGL, you won't be dissapointed! Remember, this is available for pre-order right now at BEGL's Shop and will only be available until tomorrow at 3;30 PM EST.

Envy Lacquer: Seven Sins Of Summer Collection

Hey guys! How did everyone's week go? I'm so happy it's Friday! I've been so tired this week. My highlight of the week was watching Pixar's Inside Out...twice. lol! I went with my cousins the first time, and then I took my niece the second time. And yes, I cried both times. haha You guys have to watch it! Anyways, today I have a new-to-me brand called Envy Lacquer. Melody, from Envy Lacquer, is releasing a beautiful summer collection called Seven Sins of Summer, which is releasing today! Check out all the details below!

The gorgeous Seven Sins of Summer collection consists of 7 super bright polishes, each with a beautiful shimmer and a fun glitter topper. They are being released tomorrow, June 26th at Envy Lacquer's shop

Wrath is a coral pink, leaning red creme with golden shimmer and flakies. I wore 3 coats with top coat.

This was so hard to capture! It's way more pink then it's showing, but it was making my camera go crazy. Can you ever get tired of gold and pink together? They're perfect together and this is no exception! The formula and application was fantastic. 

Glutton is a neon orange jelly-like polish with golden flecks. I wore 3 coats with top coat.

Love how bright this is! And those golden flecks really make it unique. The formula was a bit patchy at first but it smoothed out really well by the third coat.

Greed is a neon yellow sheer jelly with rainbow flecks. I wore 4 coats with top coat.

This one was a bit sheer but it could also be cause my nails are so long right now. I really liked this one! I wish I could have captured the rainbow flecks in this one but the brightness of it wasn't letting my camera focus.

Envy is a neon green jelly-like polish with golden flecks. I wore 3 coats with top coat.

This is one of my favorites from the collection. It is so bright and pretty! Plus the formula was so smooth!

Sloth is a periwinkle sky blue cream with purple shimmer. I wore 3 coats with top coat.

What a great blue! And I love the fact that Melody paired it with the purple shimmer/flash. It's a great pair. 

Lust is a bright cobalt blue with blue and purple flecks.. I wore 2 coats.

with  topcoat

This is hands down, my favorite from the collection. Everything about this polish is perfection. The shade of blue, the flecks, the formula! I might have to purchase this one in full size! You need this in your collection.

without topcoat

Pride is a bright purple with green, purple and blue flecks. I wore 2 coats with top coat.

This is another favorite of mine. I can never turn away from purples, especially when they're this shade of purple. It had a great formula too.

Sinful Summer is a holo filled glitter topper made of pink, yellow and blue microglitters as well as silver holo hexes, squares and holo dust. I wore 3 coats with topcoat.

 This can be worn as a glitter topper or you can get full coverage as well. I decided to go with no undies because it's gorgeous enough on it's own. Plus, my fingers were to sparkly!

Envy Lacquer will also be releasing a LE polish, which will only be available the week of the launch for only $5 with purchase! She hasn't picked out a name yet so make sure to follow Envy Lacquer on instagram for updates!

Here's a swatch of the polish.

It's a blurple jelly with blue squares, iridescent hexes, holo shimmer and orange micro glitter throughout.

Overall, I'm really impressed by this collection. I love how bright these colors are! You guys should definitely be on the lookout for whatever Envy Lacquer releases in the future because I'm super it'll be awesome! Again, this collection is being today, June 26th at Envy Lacquer's shop.
