Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer – Far From the Sun Collection

Press Sample



     Today's post is a real doozy! When I got home from work last night, I found a package waiting for me. That Julie from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer can be a sneaky one! I opened it up to find eight beautiful new babies that were just crying for me to pick them up. I couldn't get them on my nails fast enough! 

    Far From the Sun is the newest collection from BEGL and it's perfect for summer. I love every single one of these. Every single one. You don't want to miss a single picture in this post!



     I'm not going to bother with describing the application of each of these. They're all PERFECT in two coats. They were all a breeze to apply and dried quickly. I'd like to mention that they do dry to a somewhat matte finish so I suggest a top coat. (Except for the textured polish!)

     This might look like a plain old yellow, but it's not. I love the cooler tone to it. Plus, those blue sparkles make this really unique. I love it!

     I'm going to show each polish as it looks under my desk lamp. It allows you to see the holo look without me having natural sunlight.

teal and pink sparkles

     This is a lovely shade of green. I think it would flatter many skin tones. I really like the teal shimmer. The pink is a little harder to see, but it's great in real life. I love me some greens!

      This picture captures the green flash nicely, and you can see purple sparkles trying to to peek through. Another stunner!

     I love coral tones so much! This one is fabulous. It's probably my favorite polish from this collection. It was hard to chose, but the pink shimmer and holo are both so strong. Together, this is phenomenal.

       Do you hear the sirens singing? This baby is beyond beautiful! I love the full coverage look of just two coats. The textured look is a really nice touch and adds something new to the collection.

      I don't typically post blurry pictures, but just look at this. Look at it! So much sparkle! Top coat changes this look so much.

     Don't you just want to dive into this and roll around? That might seem a little creepy, but I don't care. I love this glitter mix. 













Chlorine Lights

bright blue shimmer

iridescent rainbow sparkles

    I really like the iridescent rainbow sparkles hidden in this gem. In real life, they're much easier to see. In this macro, you can see them peeking through near the glare on the left.

         I'm so glad I've finally found a cool red that looks great on me. I was a bit worried about the golden shimmer, but it's very soft and subtle.

     Isn't this one yummy? It's the one I chose to wear for a full manicure after finishing up the whole collection. It does not disappoint. The icy flash is great with the red sparkles. A little fire and ice. Perfect.

     I was so wrapped up in swatching this collection that poor Winslow didn't have all my attention. He was being pretty mouthy and I had to stop quite a few times to give him some head scratches. I'm telling you, this dude has such a rough life. 

    His fifteen minutes of fame is up. Back to the polish! I have some comparisons to show you...

This one was too funny not to share! Just look at his little squishy face!
