This is the Dreamland Lacquer Spring Trio plus a DVT Awareness Month Polish, but more on that polish and a new top coat later, let's get to these beautiful spring shades. These babies will be available for purchase on Tuesday March 1 at 2 p.m. central time!
First up we have Dreamland Lacquer Purple Peep-le Eater, a lovely pastel purple crelly polish with gorgeous blue shimmer, holo microglitter and yellow-golden flakies throughout. The polish was on the thicker side, so I would recommend waiting a minute between coats for the best application. It was opaque in two coats, but I added a third for ultimate blingage.
This dries to a glittery partly textured finish, so I did one coat of a regular top coat and then a coat of Dreamland Lacquer's new top coat Ooh Shiny.
Next up we have Dreamland Lacquer Eggcite-Mint. This is a beautiful pastel mint green crelly with the same blue shimmer, holo microglitter and gold flakies as Purple Peep-le Eater. Similar formula as Peep-le Eater as well – three coats for this opacity and a coat of regular top coat and then a coat of Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny to top off the sparkle.
My soul has been drawn to minty shades as of late, so so I was super happy when I put this one on!
To round the trio out we have Dreamland Lacquer Peter Cotton Candy Tail. This is a sky blue crelly with purple shimmer, holo microglitter and golden flakies. Same formula as the last two, three coats for opacity and two coats of top coat for a smooth shiny finish.
I just love these three, they remind me of decorating Easter eggs. I like them because they aren't just your regular spring pastels, they have something for everyone – holo, flakies and so much shimmer and shine! :)
Finally we have what I'm sure you were all so excited to see. This is Dreamland Lacquer Out, Damned Clot! A truly red holo polish, a Coca-Cola red holo that is opaque in two coats with a stunning linear holo flash that has a violet streak to it. I was in LOVE with this polish this minute I put it on. Soooo pretty!
Now let's get to a whole other reason this polish is awesome – this polish was created in honor of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) Awareness Month. $4 of each bottle sold in the month of March will be donated to the National Blood Clot Alliance (www.stoptheclot.org).
Noelie had a sweet message behind this polish, so let's stop a second and take a minute to learn about this!
How often do you think about blood clots? Probably not that often, unless you’re a survivor, are close to a survivor, or have lost someone to a clot. I think about it often, since one of my very best friends survived a life threatening clot 7 years ago. Her name is Jill, and she is the inspiration for this polish.
Blood clot statistics are staggering. More people die every year from blood clots than from breast cancer, AIDS, and traffic accidents combined. On average, one person dies every six minutes in the United States from a blood clot. Pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs) is the third leading cause of death in the United States, yet studies have shown that only 1 in 4 people have any recognition of blood clots, or their signs and symptoms.
The National Blood Clot Alliance is doing everything they can to change that. Their website, www.stoptheclot.org, has a huge amount of good information about the signs and symptoms of blood clots, as well as risk factors Education is the key. Knowing whether you’re at risk, and knowing the signs and symptoms, can be the difference between life and death. I’m thrilled to be supporting the NBCA this month with this polish in their endeavor to stop the clot.
I do have another warning for this polish, be careful! It will produce distracted driving! ;-) Just look at how it glows as the sun sets on a drive home earlier this week! Plus a rare appearance of my Cinderella hand on the blog!
And another bit of awesome news, I've been testing out a new top coat from Dreamland Lacquer and Noelie is ready to release it. I find this dries quickly, is super shiny and does not mess up nail art either! It is a 2-free (contains toluene) quick dry top coat called Ooh Shiny and will retail for $5. I hope you all like it as much as I do! All these swatches were done using that top coat!
So once again, for those that missed it earlier, these polishes will be available Tuesday March 1 at 2 p.m. central time zone at the Dreamland Lacquer site. Which do you hope to pick up? I'm totally in love with Out, Damned Clot! but the pastel crellies are perfect for this time of year too!
