Night Owl Lacquer Dreaming of Green

Press Sample

It's been a while but I'm back! I know I say this a lot but I truly do have the most exciting thing EVER (in my humble little opinion) to share with you! Lindsay of Night Owl Lacquer has released another stunning collection, but this time they're ALL green! You guys know that green, especially olive, is my favorite color; and Lindsay has created some of the most amazing green polishes I've ever seen for the Dreaming of Green collection! Scroll through for my swatches and nail art; and you'll find all the info you could ever need at the end of this post!

New Beginnings is a rich dark olive loaded with copper shimmer and flakes. It has a beautiful glow from within quality and a fantastic formula! I've shown it here with two coats and topcoat.

Wildflower Meadows is spring in a bottle! This mossy olive shade has a lighter and brighter base than New Beginnings, and it's got the most interesting mix of purple and violet shimmer; with light pink, dark pink and blue holo shreds. I have never seen ANYTHING like this color, and I couldn't begin to contain my audible squee. It's definitely my favorite from the collection and one I think all of my Olive Polish friends will fiend for! Again I've shown it here with two coats and topcoat, and the formula is absolute perfection!

The Grass Is Greener Where You Water It is a perfect clover green with a massive amount of subtly shifty micro flakes that go from gold to green, and a generous splash of scattered holo. This one really dances on the nails! Shown with two easy coats and topcoat, it's got that same awesome formula I've come to expect from Lindsay!

My god... Feeling Lucky is so pretty it hurts me! This bright lime green jelly is packed full of iridescent glitters and it's UV reactive so it glows under black lights! You can even leadlight with this one and you know I absolutely love that! This formula was slightly thicker to suspend all those gorgeous glitters, but it's so easy to use and glides right on in two easy coats!

Lastly, renewal is a shimmery mint green loaded with gold micro flake and some loud gold shimmer. I was worried with this light shade I might need more coats, but again I've just used two here! I thought this one would make a perfect base for some nail art.

I just got back from my Southwest road trip and I always have succulents on the brain! Haha. I love these fun and funky images from Curali Stamping, and have been dying to use them! Feeling Lucky made a perfect cactus color and I used Jack-O-Lantern and Bitch I'm a Unicorn for the little potted plant and the flowers. For those of you wondering the stamping colors are Brick and Sorbet by Mundo de Uñas!

And finally in the spirit of the season I bring you the entire Night Owl Lacquer Dreaming of Green Collection in one fabulous mani! Lead lighting and glitter placement on the accent nail, with reverse stamped negative space clover decals. I can't say enough wonderful things about Painted Polish Stamped in Stone, which I used for the accent nail here as well as for my stamping. Stamped in Clay is under Feeling Lucky as well, to add some depth!

I know this collection is going to excite so many of you, especially my ugly-pretty sistahs, so here's what you need to know! The Dreaming in Green launch is this evening at 10pm MST, and the polishes are $9 each, or you can save by ordering the full collection for $42! If you love your greens like I do, it's definitely the way to go. Each one of these are completely magical! You're always welcome to use my code BHN10, to save a little extra on your order as well! Be sure to give me follow here so that you never miss a Night Owl launch. Until next time, my loves!
