As you may have noticed I have been working on quite a few swatches lately. I never realized how much work painting your nails could be but I am quite liking it. Been setting myself up on the coffee table and watching a plethora of Star Trek on Netflix, don’t judge me it’s quite interesting stuff!
Ha you probably just pulled one of these looks after my last remark. Okay okay enough funny stuff, today I have some freaking awesome varnishes from Bsqaured Lacquer. Mia of @Miadillpicklenails on Instagram has created her first indie line consisting of a lovely versatility of shades dubbing it the Instafamily collection.
All Aboard is a light blue scattered holo. I used three thin coats for opacity and then used topcoat to smooth it out. The blue in this is sort of on the teal side and the base is almost crelly like, thats why three coats was needed.
Purple Unicorns is as blurple scattered holo that showed opacity in three coats. I would say it’s a little lighter then what my photos show. This had the same formula as All Aboard but applied a little smoother. Really like this blurply color and had to add one of Hex Nail Jewelry’s cute little charms of a unicorn.
Up close on this unicorn charm as it is so cute. I’ve used this once before and it still looks fab. Need to place another order with them ASAP. Possible Christmas present mom??? Yes my mommy reads my blog :D
With All My Heart is a pink jelly filled with golden shimmery dust. I used three thin coats and a very faint VNL (visible nail line) could still be observed. I didn’t mind though since the color is so attractive. Added a marbled heart to go along with this pretty shade. The golden shimmer in this was quite the perfect addition.
Here is the final look as I felt the space above the heart needed some sparkle so I added a little Venique Sea Diamonds, the perfect mix of silver glitters to compliment any color.
Instafamily is a mix of teal, blue and purple large circular holo glitters, small blue and silver square glitters and then its filled up with lots of silver shimmery dust in a clear base. Here I used one layer with a little fishing for the larger glitters overtop of Fnug’s Hipsters which turned a little brighter after application. This has happened to me once before when using a green undie for a glitter polish but it still looks super fab. The teal, blue and purple circles are such a great match. Did an accent marble using some Bettina shades in Aqua and Purple
This next shade Fall Accessories which is not part of the Instafamily collection but is a Limited Edition shade, is a mix of pink circle, orange hex, yellow medium and small purple square glitters in a white crelly base. The base is also filled with silver dust glitters. I used one coat overtop of white with a bit of placement for the glitter. That can be expected in this sort of lacquer as the glitters can get lost in the crelly base. I love the name and colors in this polish though and I added a marble to match using some Bettina shades.
All in all I was impressed with Mia’s first collection. I even saved one of the shades from the Instafamily collection, Change the Game, for another blog post so be on the lookout for that!
All of the Instafamily collection and Fall Accessories will be restocked on Nov. 30th at Bsquared Lacquer’s site HERE.
