Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Winter Collection Reviews & Swatches

I'm still around! :P With all the holiday craziness and feeling under the weather again, I just haven't been in the mood to blog or even do my nails. :X I thought I would come back with bang and show you the entire Blue-Eye Girl Lacquer Winter Collection! So enjoy and I hope everyone had a great New Year and holidays! :D

Electric Icicle has a  clear base with bright blue holo hexes, rainbow iridescent hexes and squares, silver holo hexes and tiny diamonds and blue holo stars. All nails are 1 coat over 3 coats of Untrodden Snow.
Electric Icicle and Untrodden Snow are meant to be paired together, as apart of Blue-Eye Girl Lacquer's December Duo, and they are amazing together and alone. :) Formula was a little on the thick side, but all the glitter came out easily and didn't need to be "placed" on the nail. Dry time was average, yet it needs a top coat anyways to smooth out so that helped quicken up the dry time. Overall the polish is beautiful and looks great over Untrodden Snow!
Frozen Ivy is a  deep green jelly with silver and green micro glitters. Shown is 3 coats with top coat.
 Even though Christmas has passed, you can never go wrong with a nice deep green with added spark. :) Formula was a tad thicker, but still easy to work with and dried quickly.
Hypothermia is a dark purple linear holographic polish with vivid purple shimmer. These photos are 2 coats with top coat.
Hypothermia is a limited edition polish is only available for those who purchase the entire Winter Collection and I recommend you do! It's gorgeous and easy to work with. :) It was hard to capture the purple shimmer, but you can see it peeking out in the bottle shot below. ;)
Plum Tired of the Cold has a blackened plum shimmery base with gold micro hexes, red hexes, diamonds, and circle glitters, wine and burgundy hexes, black hexes and holo dots. All nails are 3 coats with top coat.
This polish's name sums up my feeling on the cold anymore! :P  It is a on the sheer side, so you could layer it or build it up like I did. It is on the thicker side, so I think layering it would be easier. I really love the base color and how the red dots and diamonds peep out, along with the gold hexes. :)
St. Nick's Sweet Treats has a clear base with silver micro-flakies, glitters predominantly in gold, red, and white, with extra bits of color splashed in. All nails are 2 coats over 2 coats of Toasty Warm. 
Can you ever go wrong with something Saint Nick themed?! My answer will always be no if you are wondering! :P I love everything about this polish and it was super easy to work with! :) Even the larger rectangles came out of the bottle with no problem. :D
Snowfall at Dusk has a periwinkle based polish with various shades of blue hexes, squares, anddots, blue-green iridescent hexes, and large white snowflakes. Shown is 3 coats with top coat.
While I wasn't able to get any snowflakes out, it's still a beautiful polish with or without them! :D Formula was again on the thick side, yet still dried quickly and the glitter applied nice and evenly.
Tacky Winter Sweater is a light pink based polish with sapphire hexes, holo violet hexes, and holographic bright pink hexes, diamonds, and dots, purple iridescent hexes, and light pink snowflakes. Here is 3 coats with top coat. 
This polish is anything but tacky! As you can see I was able to get the snowflakes out, but it did take some fishing and shaking. My thoughts are the same as Snowfall at Dusk regarding the snowflakes; it looks great with or without them! :) Formula was thicker, yet still easy to work with and with the exception of the snowflakes, all the glitter came out easily and applied nicely. 
Toasty Warm is a vampy blackened red creme with irregularly shapedred shimmers. All nails are 3 coats with top coat. 
This polish was made to resemble " embers glowing" and I think Julie, the creator of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, hit the nail on the head! :) Formula was easy to work with and it dried quickly. It's definitely a polish that can be worn even when it's not chilly outside. ;) 
Untrodden Snow is a white based with a blue flash, blue shimmer, and blue micro flakes. Shown is 3 coats with top coat.
My camera was just not having it try to capture this polish. :( I am really sad because this is an amazing white polish and polish in general. The blue flash is very noticeable in person, despite what my camera would lead you to believe, and the formula was great! Like Toasty Warm, it's something I see myself using way beyond winter time. :D
This collection can be purchased through Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer's Big Cartel storefront. Sadly I believe St. Nick's Sweet Treats isn't available anymore, but you can still find everything else from this post and more in stock! :) Make sure to follow Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and make sure to check out her blog!
