It’s time for another PGB post! I’m so excited about this box in general. Pokemon has been a big part of my life ever since I was a kid. The games, video and card, the show and movies, collecting Pokemon merch of any kind, pretending to be a trainer on adventures with my little brother, etc. So, I’m VERY happy to be able to share my swatches of a few items this month! Everything this month is fantastic, for real fantastic, and I have five of those fantastic things to share! Lets get to those before I start talking more about my childhood lol.
1422 Designs – Get Ready to Rumble
Inspiration: Pokemon Rumble World logo
Description: A bright blue crelly with rainbow shifting flakies
Thoughts: This one is just beautiful! I love me some sheer polishes and the flakies in here give it such depth. I love the base color, that mixed with the shift of the flakies gives off such fun, spring vibes. The formula is smooth, you get a bunch of flakies out easily and it builds up very nicely in three coats, I may even use this as a topper over a similar blue or even a darker shade of blue, that would be fun!
BCB Lacquers – Lava Plume
Inspiration: Flareon/Mega Flareon
Description: A deep fire red polish with flakies that shift from bright red, to deep oranges, to gold depending on the angle it is viewed
Thoughts: I love me some Eeveelutions, okay? Flareon is my number three pick actually lol. This polish captures Flareon perfectly, in my opinion. It’s dark and fiery and just stunning. The formula is crazy smooth, you get enough flakies out to give each layer depth and they give you no trouble. This one is kinda perfect for this time of year too. All the dark, vampy colors please! But, seriously, this one is beautiful!
Geekish Glitter Lacquer – #132 Dad
Inspiration: Ditto and his many many children
Description: A lilac based crelly with black microglitter and black bar glitter
Thoughts: Ugh, GGL’s crelly formula is one of my faves. And Ditto! Listen. The name of this polish alone made me fall in love. Then the formula. And the bar glitters! I love me some bar glitters and I’m not ashamed to admit it. The formula is ridiculously smooth and you get a bunch of microglitter out and just enough bar glitter to not get overwhelmed. Plus, those glitter represent Dittos eyes and mouth! How fricken cute is that?! Just a perfect purple, Ditto crelly. Love it so much!
Rogue Lacquer – Mew Mew
Inspiration: The Pokémon Mew
Description: Delicate mauve scattered holo with aqua to purple shimmer and micro holo flakes
Thoughts: Meeeeew! I get heart eyes just thinking about that adorable little Psychic Pokemon. This polish captures Mew in a bottle. The base color is gorgeous and that shimmer/micro holo flakes make me think of Mew using a Psychic move and I just, ugh. It’s perfect! Another fantastic formula, super easy to work with. It practically glows because of the goodies in it. The shift of the shimmer is amazing. Just another to love from Rogue for me!
Swamp Gloss – Shut Yo Meowth
Description: A linear holo, deep red base with aurora shimmer and micro holo flakes
Thoughts: If you don’t like or relate to Meowth in some way, specifically Jessie and James’ Meowth, then I don’t know you lol. Just kidding! This polish though! I love that it’s a linear holo with an aurora shimmer, it gives it so much glow! Then the flakes give it even more holo goodness! And that deep red base? Yes. I will admit that my brush was a little wonky but that didn’t effect the formula at all! It was still super easy to apply and built up so well in two coats!
