Today’s Swatch Saturday is all about The Scoobies, a glitter topper from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer. I’m wearing two coats of it over two coats of Essie’s Sand Tropez, I Am Strong, and Navigate Her.
The Scoobies contains a ton of glitter: various sizes and shapes of red, copper, silver, and black hexes, red squares, holographic silver moons, red hearts, black stars, and shiny, tiny pink/purple sparkles. There’s a lot of fun in this bottle. As you can see, it’s only about half full. I’ve enjoyed this one many times since I bought it. I love the eclectic mix of glitter, the texture created by the fine sparkles, and the edgy color combination. I’m sad that I’m already running so low on it; I knew I should have bought a backup bottle when it was on sale.
The Scoobies was part of BEGL’s Once More With Feeling collection, a set of polishes inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer. As the collection was mostly holos, I admit I didn’t grab too many of those colors. I kinda regret it now. As you might guess, this collection has been discontinued, and the last bottle of The Scoobies sold a month or so ago. Check the BEGL store anyway, you might see something you’ll like.
I almost didn’t do a Wacie Wednesday this week. I loved my pink gradient so much that it was really difficult to say goodbye to it. Note to self: this is why dishwashers were invented. My Wacie Nail Co. polish this week is called Summerboy. I’m wearing three coats of it with two coats of Seche Vite. Let’s check it out.
This polish is a little deceiving. It looks like a blue shimmer, but it’s actually a barely-there white jelly loaded down with turquoise blue micro-flakies. Yeah, there’s so much of it, it actually looks blue. This is yet another happy accident where putting things in bottles for fun and chuckles actually paid off. The notes I wrote for this do say “white pigment and turquoise flakies”, but there’s so much color in it that I’m doubting myself. Did I put blue in it and failed to make note of it? Did the flakies bleed? I don’t know where this color is actually coming from, but I love it. It’s vibrant and bright. It might be one of the nicest turquoise polishes I have, and I don’t say that lightly. I don’t even like to talk that way about my own polish, it makes me feel like a jerk.
Because I don’t dread going outside anymore, here’s an outdoor photo.
Wacie Nail Company is getting closer to a real launch, so watch this space all month, because it’s going to happen some time this April. I’m also thinking this is a good time to have a giveaway. I poured some minis of the spring collection for a reviewer today, and I may pour another for a soon-to-be winner. Maybe.
