Swatch and Review: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Innocence in the Moment Collection!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Innocence in the Moment Collection
Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have the Innocence in the Moment Collection from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer to share with you! BEGL is a brand that I have been dying to try because she's based in Georgia just like me but kept forgetting about. When I was asked to swatch this collection, I was pretty excited to say the least! All four of these polishes are beautiful and unique. I have a ton of pictures to share with you, so let's jump right in! 

The first polish in the collection is Basking in the Storm which is described as an amethyst purple with blue and aqua shimmers. I would classify this as a jelly like or crelly like polish but it was almost opaque in one coat! In the indirect lighting it does look almost blue black but in the sun you can see the purple base and all of the lovely shimmers. This polish is a bit on the thicker side but I had no issues with the formula as a whole. I would recommend not overworking the polish when you apply as the formula on this one dries relatively quickly so you can get some streaking. However, if you apply fairly quickly and just do two to three stokes when applying, it self levels beautifully and is perfectly opaque in two coats. My swatch shows two coats plus topcoat. This one retails for $8.50 (full) and $5 (mini).

 Next up is Chasing the Skyline, a royal blue creme with iridescent rainbow flakies. I had such a hard time capturing the flakies with my camera but they are very apparent in person. I absolutely love this shade of blue! Chasing the Skyline is another highly pigmented, almost one coater polish. I found the formula to be nice but a little on the thick side. Despite it being thicker, I was able to apply two thin coats which both self leveled easily. My swatch shows two coats plus topcoat. This one retails for $8.50 (full) and $5 (mini).

 Next we have The Seasons Change, a berry pink linear holographic with platinum micro flakies. You guys...this one is ONE coat. You definitely do not need a second at all, The Seasons Change is highly pigmented with a flawless formula. Again, a bit on the thicker side but no issues with self leveling or application. The platinum flakies bring something extra to this polish to make it especially girly and flashy. My swatch shows two coats plus topcoat. This one retails for $12 (full) and $6 (mini).

Last up is I Only Meant to Stay a While, an emerald green jelly with micro holographic glitters in green, silver, blue, and purple. This one is absolutely my favorite of the collection! I Only Meant to Stay a While has so much depth and dimension and is definitely one of the more unique polishes to my collection. Formula wise, this one mimics Basking In The Storm in that you cannot overwork the polish or you can get some streakiness. However, if you apply quickly and use minimal strokes, it applies beautifully in two even, self leveling coats. My swatch shows 2 coats plus topcoat. I Only Meant to Stay a While retails for $8.50 (full) and $5 (mini).

As a disclaimer, all Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers are intended to be opaque in one to two coats and can be thinned at the users discretion if you'd prefer a thinner formula. I had no issues applying these despite them being on the thicker side.

The full collection will retail for $37.50 (full size) and $21 (mini size) and will be available for pre-order January 27th at 3:30 PM EST through January 29th at 3:30 PM EST. There will also be a new Destination Duo and special edition polish launching on the 27th but will be first come, first served rather than a pre-order. All of these polishes will be available in the Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer store! You can also follow BEGL on Instagram and Facebook for more swatches and information regarding this launch.
