Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer & Contrary Polish Destination Duo: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hey y'all! For today I have two new polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer & Contrary Polish that make up this month's Destination Duo. 

If you have seen previous Blue-Eyed Girl Destination collaborations, the polishes are created with a destination photo in mind. For this duo, the makers used this photo that Carrie (of Contrary Polish) took at the Sundance Film Festival:

  The Duo will be released as a pre-order in both Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer's & Contrary Polish's shops from today, January 31st through Tuesday February 7th. 

The duo will cost $20 shipped domestically or $20 with a prorated shipping fee internationally.


Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Special Selection
Three coats
Black cherry jelly with gold micro-flakes, gold holo micro-glitter, copper/gold/fuchsia and green/pink/gold ultra-chrome flakes
The pop of red from the photo translates to this vibrant and rich polish. I love how full of detail this is, with lots of flakes and gold. You will find that although you may get enough opacity in two coats, a light third coat deepens the color. A double layer of topcoat is recommended, I didn't realize that with the amount of flakes, the topcoat would settle a bit into the polish. 



Contrary Polish Meet Me Under the Marquee
Three coats
Taupe jelly base with holo micro-flakes and various ultra-chrome flakes
The stately theater facade and it's columns are the inspiration point for this polish. I like that it's a cool contrast compared to the previous warm red. The taupe base is just sheer enough in color to allow the flakes to peep through. Application is nice and easy though you will probably need to apply three thinly applied coats for coverage.
