Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - The Ancient Power Review | May 2018 Polish Pickup


Happy Wednesday (does anyone still remember the Hump Day commercials?)! Today, I'm just trying to stay inside and away from all of the evil pollen, but Trumpet definitely wants to be outside all the time. The struggle. Anyways, I have the second polish available for May's Polish Pickup Pack! This one is inspired by Charmed (the light from where the Power of Three is formed and then reconstituted) which means I'm freaking obsessed with the polish...and that I might start DVR'ing Charmed again. The Ancient Power is $12 with no cap!

Polish Pickup is a monthly polish shopping extravaganza! Each month, there's a new theme (voted on by group members) and makers individually decide if they want to participate and create their own polish to meet the theme. This month, the store is open from 5/4-5/7, and you can buy as many or as few polishes as you want. The shipping is $3.00 total, no matter how many polishes you get, and they combine shipping if you make more than one order during the weekend!

Glossy nail macro.


This is such a pretty and light, springy blue. The shimmer and flakes so well match the inspiration and the polish itself is just so stunning. 


Look at the shimmer! I actually struggled a bit with focusing issues because my camera wasn't sure where to focus! Too much going on!


Matte nail macro.


This picture went super cool-toned, I tried to fix it the best I could. The Ancient Power is pretty with a matte top coat but it's really pretty glossy, so take my word for it and leave it shiny.


Formula: Very good, thinner on the pigment (multiple coats), thicker formula.
Coats for Opacity: Three coats.
Ease of Dry: Normal dry.
Texture: None noted.
Finish: Shine.
Removal: Normal removal, no issues noted.
Top Coat Used: Glossy/Matte.

As always, let me know what you thought of this polish in the comments!
