Down the Bayou Lacquer/Summer,Cajun Style Collection

Hello and Welcome!!

How's your week going?Mine has been extremely busy,just the way I like it.My allergies have been kicking my butt here lately.This past month I have been waking up in the middle of the night gasping for air. My asthma is so out of control.Anyway...I'm not sure if you have heard the news,but Down the Bayou Lacquer is releasing the new Summer,Cajun Style Collection tomorrow,April 26th. This collection will be available for pre-order for a week.You will have until May 8th to order your favorite colors.All orders will be shipping around May 17th.
Now this collection is a lot smaller than her last one,which is not a bad thing.This collection has 8 beautiful blends,her last one had 13.Lets take a look a these beauties below.

"Fresh Louisiana Strawberries"
This is a red/pink jelly polish with light pink,light green mixed glitter with green micro glitter,red iridescent shimmer and a touch of pink holo circles.
I applied 3 coats with a top coat. This polish is a tad sheer but it's build-able.Now with the pink holo dots,they do need to be fished out just because there's just a few of them in the formula.
"Girls Wear Camo Too"
This is a clear base glitter topper with green iridescent micro glitter,green and pink flakies and brown hex glitters.
I applied 1 coat of "Girls Wear Camo Too" over 2 coats of SinfulColors/Beau Khaki.(Perfect combo,if I do say myself)Next time I go hunting I'm wearing this!
"Cruisin Back Roads"
This is a bright green lime jelly with green iridescent shimmer,orange/green iridescent flakies.
I applied 3 coats and a top coat. This polish is very sheer but build-able.I didn't apply more than 3 coats because I didn't want it to look caked on. 
"Muddy River Banks"
This is a soft brown holo.
I applied 2 light coats with a top coat. This is my favorite in this collection.It applied so smooth and the formula was flawless. It was not to thick or to thin. It's perfection!
"It's Festival Season"
This is a clear base glitter topper packed with multi colored flakies.
I applied 1 coat of "It's Festival Season" over 1 coat of SinfulColors/Rise & Shine.When I saw this polish I was not sure that I was going to like it. To me it looked like the confetti in a bag from the craft store BUT I was wrong! Although it does look like the confetti from the craft store it looks flawless on nails.I did not have any issues with the flake sticking up. It applied perfectly.Oh another thing,I would not recommend applying 2 coats just because the flakes can overlap making it look caked on.
"Bonfires and Tailgates"
This is a light purple/periwinkle holo with iridescent shimmer.
I applied 1 coat. This polish is beautiful but it was thick and had bumps from the shimmer and was streaky. I brought the issue to Jodi's attention and she said that she would tweak the formula a bit to fix all the issues. I also applied a top coat and the bumps and streaks were still visible.
"Windows Down,Radio Up"
This is a Blue/teal holo with iridescent glitter.
I applied 1 coat but 2 coats would be perfect to. This color was not bumpy but it was slightly streaky even with a top coat.
"Storms Rollin In"
This is a grey jelly,with a mixture of black glittter,holo flakies and silver iridescent shimmer.
I applied 2 light coats and a top coat. This color looks beautiful in the sun but unfortunately my sun shot looks horrible. LOL

Overall I think that the colors in this collection are beautiful.There was some formula issues but that will be taken care of before the collection launches.You can check out more info on this collection on all of Down the Bayou Lacquer's media sites, which I will post below. What do you think about this new collection? Are you ready to pre-order your paints?

Fandom Cosmetics:The Boondock Saints Collection

Hello and Welcome!!!
After waking up all sluggish this morning I decided to make myself a cup of coffee. I don't drink coffee to often but I needed some kind of boost. Now that my cup is almost gone I am on some kind of caffeine high where I cant stop shaking. It's a great feeling somewhat but...that doesn't mix to well when trying to type.
I'm going to fight through the shaking part because I have a collection called "The Boondock Saints" sent to me by Fandom Cosmetics to share with you.
"The Boondock Saints is a 1999 American vigilante film written and directed by Troy Duffy. The film stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as fraternal twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus, who become vigilantes after killing two members of the Russian Mafia in self-defense. After both experience an epiphany, the brothers, together with their friend "Funny Man" (David Della Rocco), set out to rid their home city of Boston, Massachusetts of crime and evil, all while being pursued by FBI Agent Paul Smecker (Willem Dafoe)".
 Not only is this lady from Fandom Cosmetics beautiful, she is very creative and can blend some paints!I was very excited to get to work with her. This is in fact the first time I have tried out her creations and I have definitely been missing out! Lets take a look at this collection below!
"Veritas Aequitas"
"Veritas Aequitas" is an opaque black polish with a mixture of green and holographic gold dust. I applied 3 light coats and a top coat. In the sunlight the green and gold holographic dust shifts to all the colors of the rainbow. I really do love this color. It applied evenly with no issues of drying.
"I Killed Your Cat"
"I Killed Your Cat" is a clear base glitter topper filled with various shapes and sizes of red glitter.I applied 2 light coats of I Killed Your Cat over 2 coats of SinfulColors/Cool Grey.
I had to apply 2 coats of I Killed Your Cat because not much glitter came out on the brush. You really don't want that much glitter anyway,putting more than 2 coats will make it look packed on and all the glitter will just overlap.
"Get Your F-In' Rope"
"Get Your F-In' Rope" is a opaque brown/copperish colored polish with holographic red,gold and burnt orange dust. I applied 2 light coats with a top coat. This polish has a bumpy finish but looks flawless with a top coat.
"Spiritus Sancti"
"Spiritus Sancti" is a semi-opaque green polish filled with green glitter and a touch of brown dots.It also looks like there is a mixture of black hexes or they could be a darker shade of green.
I applied 3 light coats and a top coat. To get a full opaque look I recommend 4 coats. I feel 3 coats was perfect for me.Another thing you could do is apply a coat of "Spiritus Sancti" over your favorite shade of green.That would look amazing!

I really had fun with this collection. The colors were unique and the formula is wonderful.For more information on this collection check out Fandom Cosmetics Facebook page,shop and other social media pages. Of course I will list the links below to point you in the right direction!Oh and 1 more thing,She ships Internationally!!!
