Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - The Indie Shop Atlanta Exclusives


If you guys haven't heard yet, The Indie Shop is coming to Atlanta! It's this weekend (Saturday, March 11) and it's free for general admission (tickets here). I'm going to be there and I'm very excited to attend and be able to buy my nail polish in person and meet some of my favorite makers. 

The following polishes are exclusive to The Indie Shop Atlanta by Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer and they are gorgeous!



These Be Rubies, Fairy Favors is a deep red scattered holographic with midnight red flakies.

I am such a fan of ruby reds, I've become more of a lover of reds in general actually.


Look at that sparkle!!


Matte nail macro.


Even matte it's such a lovely polish and the deepness of the ruby comes out to play.


Formula: Very good.
Coats for Opacity: Two.
Ease of Dry: Easy.
Texture: None noted.
Finish: Shine.


The Cedar Forest is a dusty cedar with red to gold to green chromatic shift.

Glossy nail macro.


If I'm allowed to be biased for a second, this might be my favorite Indie Shop Exclusive. I say biased because dusty rose with a hint of mauve is my thing right now, this is actually my goal lipstick color that I'm hunting for but haven't quite found yet.


That shift, though. It's what dreams are made of.

The matte top coat makes it so much more interesting. The shift isn't as evident but the subtleties in the base color shine.


Formula: Perfect.
Coats for Opacity: Two.
Ease of Dry: Very quick.
Texture: None noted.
Finish: Shine


Elfdan Thrall is a deep mossy green jelly packed with green, orange, blue, red/gold/green, and lime shifting iridescent glitters.

We couldn't have an exclusive trio without a gorgeous glitter bomb, could we?


Look at all of the different glitters. This definitely reminds me of a magic forest (the theme of The Indie Shop this time). 


Matte nail macro.


All of the glitters are more evident with the matte top coat so you can really see all that this polish has to offer.


Formula: Typical jelly with glitter.
Coats for Opacity: Three.
Ease of Dry: Quick and easy.
Texture: Texture noted, smoothed with top coat.
Finish: Shine.

Both The Cedar Forest and These Be Rubies, Fairy Favors are $12 while Elfdan Thrall is $8.50. As I mentioned, these polishes are exclusive to The Indie Shop so don't forget to come! Make sure you have joined the Facebook Group (above) to get more information about future releases!
