Today I have the Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Hella Holo Customs exclusive polishes. Hella Holo Customs is a Facebook group that features nail polish brands with special-edition holographic polishes. However, in order to purchase any HHC polishes, you must be a member of the Facebook group. You can message Aubrey Lacaillade , Dawn Borden or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the email address tied to your Facebook account. Yes, this does require jumping quite a few hoops, but the polishes are totally worth it.
Atalanta (two coats): periwinkle leaning purple linear holo packed with gold to green to blue shifting glass flecks
Holo-melon (two coats): watermelon coral linear holo with pink to purple to blue shifting glass flecks
Mermaid Tails & Drunken Sails (two coats): medium green linear holo with lime to gold to green shifting iridescent glitters and red to gold shifting sparks
All of the polishes were opaque in two coats. I am beyond crazy for Atalanta. The gold to green shifting glass flecks gives the purple polish a fairy-like aura. As for Holo-melon and Mermaid Tails & Drunken Sails, the first thing I thought was they were the perfect watermelon polish pair. Due to this, I was inspired to do a bit of nail art.
The Pretty Serious Absence “seeds” were dabbed on using a dotting tool.
I also have two monthly polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, one from the Destination Polish Duo and another from the Siren limited edition series.
Blue-Blood Brownstone (two coats): brick red linear holo with purple shimmers and a strong purple flash
Siren’s Lament (two coats): deep teal with pink to indigo to gold shifting glass flecks
Blue-Blood Brownstone was opaque in one coat and applied like butter. Apparently there was a problem with early bottles of Siren’s Lament being too thick, but I didn’t have a problem applying it myself.
Atalanta and Holo-melon are $13.50 while Mermaid Tails & Drunken Sails is $13. The HHC polishes are currently sold as a pre-order from 2/14 to 2/29. Siren’s Lament was released on 2/25 and is $12. The Destination Duo is $25 and will be released from 2/25-2/29.
