Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer & Literary Lacquers: Destination Duo Available July 31, 2015!

Today I am very excited to bring to you a brand new duo from two awesome indie companies, Literary Lacquers and Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer!

I have been swatching for Literary Lacquers for quite a while now and Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer was one of the first indies to give this blogger a chance (almost three years ago now!) to review polishes, so both of these companies are near and dear to my heart!

Here is the new Destination Duo, inspired by a photo that Julie, of BEGL, took on vacation in Florida!


For $25 shipped (in the US), you'll receive Gulf Coast Twilight from Literary Lacquers, described as: "Soft dusky twilight purple linear holo with iridescent gold flakies and a touch of orange shimmer," Happy Hour at the Blue Parrot by Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, which is a "Medium sunny orange jelly with purple and copper shimmers" and 10 waterslide decals with tropical drink designs.
The duo will be available at both Literary Lacquer's store: HERE and at the BEGL store: HERE on July 31st, so mark your calendars!


Let's take a look at each polish and then some nail art that I did with both colors. I ran out of time to use the decals because I wanted to get this post up, so please look for pics on my Instagram coming soon!

First up, this is Happy Hour at the Blue Parrot by BEGL! The polish of BEGL's tends to be a little thicker so you can use less coats. This one has a jelly/crelly-ish base so I used three thin coats, plus topcoat, for the pics below.



The formula is nice and smooth. Let coats dry to avoid any pulling or tugging.

I had a tough time getting this color accurate, but I refuse to color edit. I want you to see what I get. I took photos without flash, too, and you can see that the color is a bit deeper. It's so juicy! I feel like I have squishy tangerines on my nails!


The contribution by Literary Lacquers is called Gulf Coast Twilight. The muted purple shade is flattering to any skintone. The holo is lovely! The formula was slightly thicker than many LL polishes. I used three thin coats and topcoat for these photos.



There are 10 small waterslide decals included in the set with tropical drink themes! I wanted to get this post up quickly so I ran out of time to use the decals but look for them on my Instagram soon!


I know the destination of the duo is Florida, but when I saw the two colors together, I thought of a sunset. I have NYC skyline decals so I used both polishes to sponge a gradient and added the NYC decals.




There you have it! I hope you love these polishes as much as I do.

They will be available on Friday, July 31, 2015 and you can find them at both shops!
