Monster in a Turbulent Star | Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer April Polish Pickup

The polish in this post was provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

There’s just one week to go until April’s Polish Pickup! April’s theme is Across the Universe, and today I have Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer‘s polish for the April theme to share with you.

Painted Fingertips | Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Monster in a Turbulent Star - April Polish Pickup - bottle macro

Monster in a Turbulent Star is described as a bright orange-leaning red scattered holographic with a touch of larger particle linear holographic pigment, aqua shimmer, turquoise glass flecks, gunmetal and gold microflakies, and green to aqua aurora shifting pigment. Depending on the angle and lighting conditions, I can see all of those components coming through. This really is a bottle full of goodness!

Painted Fingertips | Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Monster in a Turbulent Star - April Polish PickupMonster in a Turbulent Star was inspired by a photo of the NGC 2264 cone nebula as captured by the Hubble telescope:I think that Julie did an amazing job of capturing this inspiration! From the red base to the flecks of gold and turquoise. I also absolutely love the stunning images Hubble sends us!

This polish had the excellent formula I am coming to expect from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer.

This polish is a must for red-lovers!

I really wanted to show a little more of the holo shift – here’s a shot in different lighting to show you a little of that holo, but the base colour is a little off. Rely on the other pictures for better colour accuracy!
