Lacquerhead Polish Blue Bayou, Lilac You Mean It & Lemon Sugar Cuticle Oil

Hi guys! I know I've been a horrible blogger lately. I blame the nice weather and Pinterest for giving me way too many ideas to spruce up the outside of our house. :P If I haven't shown you already, Lacquerhead Polish makes some amazing holos and a few drew me in last week when I went on a mini etsy buying spree. So I'm here today to show them off. :)

Love this polish! It's an amazing bright blue, perfect formula, it's super holo (my camera freaked a bit as you can see in the first photo because of this) and while I did use 1 coat of base coat under it, I was able to wear it for 2 days and experienced no staining when I took it off. What's not to love! ;)

Lacquerhead Polish Lilac You Mean It Swatch
Lilac You Mean it has a spectra flair alternative in a dusty purple base. Shown is 2 coats with top coat.

 Another polish Alischia , the creator behind Lacquerhead Polish, knocked out of the park! Really nothing more than I can say than that. :P

Lacquerhead Polish Lemon Sugar Cuticle Oil
If you follow Lacquerhead Polish on Facebook, you should have seen that Alischia mentioned updating her already awesome cuticle oils with new packaging. They now come with new labels and shrink wrapped. One new scent she's added to her line up is Lemon Sugar. It a perfect scent for spring. Though the biggest downside to these oil are they smell so good you will want to eat them. :P

It seems that Blue Bayou is currently out of stock in Lacquerhead Polish's Etsy shop, but everything else in this post can be found there! Make sure to follow Lacquerhead Polish on FacebookInstagram and Twitter!

Orly Color Blast Violet Blue

Happy Monday! Mother Nature decided to put a stop on the nice weather here and bring down rain and then cold. >_< My allergies were not happy with this change!
 Today I have a quick post with a bottle of Orly Color Blast I picked up a few weeks ago at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I was really intrigued when I first saw them, but the price was a little bit of sticker shock so I only purchased one bottle.

Violet Blue has a navy base with duo-chrome shimmer. All nails are 2 coats with top coat.

I'm pretty sure this is the same, or very close, to Orly High on Hope. I don't own High on Hope, so I can't say for certain if it is or not. A lot of the polishes I noticed in this line do appear to be rebottled and renamed other Orly colors. For the price ($6.99), I would say you are better off purchasing from the regular Orly line. Even if Orly isn't available where you live, purchasing them online with shipping would still be a better deal. The formula was good and easy to work with, so at least it has that going for it! :P

Orly Color Blast can be found in stores at Bed, Bath and Beyond and Kmart. Follow Orly on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a nice Saturday. :) I'm planning on more projects for around the house, but I don't think the weather is going to play along with my ideas. >_< If nothing else, hopefully I get some time to swatch and write up blog posts.
