Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Welcome to the Coast Review | June 2018 Polish Pickup


Y'all, I'm so behind. Husband had a really bad allergic reaction and I was dealing with a sinus infection along with an upper respiratory infection and the past week and a half have just been trying to keep us alive. On top of that, I had a really bad break about two weeks ago so my nails aren't as long/pretty/even as I strive to have, so forgive pls. I'm working on getting caught up, so stick with me, please. <3 This polish is going to be $12 and there's 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 6/1-6/4, 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 polish looks so blue on my screen (maybe yours too) but it is a little bit greener than my pictures show. I tried to edit the pictures to more accurately reflect but it just turned into a hot mess. Just a note.


The polish is based off of a scene in Final Fantasy 14, probably one of husband's least favorite FF games (Seven is his favorite, if that explains this to you) but we still had it at a point in time. And yes, I played Pokemon or Minecraft and enjoyed the 14 sounds/music while playing (and made some sarcastic commentary from time to time, I'm sure you would never believe that).


Matte nail macro.


In my professional opinion, the polish is just so much pretty with a good gloss. The matte is pretty but I think the little extra bits really need to shine!


Formula: Good, not too thick or thin.
Coats for Opacity: Three thin coats, could be two thicker coats.
Ease of Dry: Normal-quick 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!
