Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer April Showers Collection

Tonight on the blog (as promised) I have 3 beautiful polishes sent for an honest review to me from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer. These three polishes are from her upcoming April Showers collection, set to release this Sunday April 27 at 3:30 pm EDT. You will not want to miss out on these beauties! (Stock will be low but depending on popularity, Julie may bring them back for the May restock)!


Colors from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer's April Shower Collection will include the following:

Dogwood – white crelly packed with silver shimmer, purple micro-flakies, and multicolored iridescent flakies.
Peruvian Lily – pastel orange crème with a red to gold shift.
Cherry Blossom – pastel pink crelly with a teal to purple shift.
Purple Phlox – purple crème with blue to purple iridescent micro glitters.
Lady Slipper – mint green crème with a blue to purple shift.
Hydrangea –pastel blue crème packed with purple, blue, and aqua shimmers.



I was sent the following three: Peruvian Lily, Dogwood and Hydrangea.


Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer used the old saying "April Showers, Bring May Flowers," as an inspiration for this new line. It is supposed to be an array of soft pastel floral colors with the look of dewy rain on them. I believe she hit it right on the dot!

First up: Peruvian Lily




Peruvian Lily is a pastel orange creme with a red to gold shift. I also noticed a bit of pinkish shimmer to it. (So lovely!)


To achieve this look I used 3 thin coats of polish and topped it off with topcoat. I really enjoyed the formula of Peruvian Lily, as it goes on very smooth, dries in a pretty quick amount of time and has amazing coverage. Plus how cute are these rectangle bottles? (One of my favorite bottle shapes!)

Peruvian Lily will be sold on the Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer bigcartel site for $12 for a full size bottle. It is such a unique color and is definitely a must have for your collection!


Next: Dogwood




Dogwood is a white crelly polish packed with silver shimmer, purple micro-flakies, and multicolored iridescent flakies. I'm not usually a fan of white polish and mostly save it for polish undies but I can see myself pulling this one out to wear again as just a plain (but shimmery!) mani.


Again, love the formula. I used 3 thin coats to achieve this look (topped off with topcoat). However, I must admit I was tempted to leave it at one or two coats because it looks lovely with less coats of polish as well. (If you want to go for a more sheer, subtle shimmery look!)

Dogwood will be available Sunday on the Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer bigcartel site for only $8.50 for a full size bottle. Worn as a mani, or as undies for nail art. . . this is a must have as well!

Last: Hydrangea




Hydrangea is a pastel blue crème packed with purple, blue, and aqua shimmers. So beautiful! This was one of my favorites! (You all know blue is my favorite polish color!)


I achieved this look with 3 thin coats of polish and topped it off with topcoat. Holy cow! I am so glad I was able to catch the gorgeous shimmer in this picture! LOVE the formula and at only $8.50 for a full size bottle you should be running to her site on Sunday to buy this gorgeous baby blue!




I was super impressed with all three polishes!

Notes from the maker:

A few of the older Core Line, Winter Collection, and Valentine’s Day Collection polishes will also be restocked during this sale, and they include Watch the Walls, Self Satisfied, Tacky Winter Sweater, Skating in the Snow, Idealistic Future, and the December Duo. Prices for these polishes will be reduced to $6 for each individual polish and $10 for the Duo.

Please note, sadly, my cost of production has increased due to the rising prices of raw materials. As such, I have had to increase the cost of future collections. All old collection polishes will retain their old pricing. From here on out, the new pricing structure will be $8.50 for glitters/cremes/shimmers, $12 for shifters/duos/holos, and $13 for LEs. I appreciate your understanding!
