All Jesk, No Gregor

swatch bkl all jesk and no gregor 2

All Jesk, No Gregor features a beautiful sky blue base with blue/indigo shifting shimmer. Lovely tranquil shade. The formula is a little bit sheer and streaky but nothing too difficult.

3 coats + top coat

Bat!

Bat! features a warm medium purple base with bright green/blue/purple shifting shimmer. The shimmer in this one is so bright and vibrant. Flawless formula that covers in two thin coats.

One Human Alcohol Beer Please

swatch bkl one human alcohol beer please 2

One Human Alcohol Beer Please features a black base with strong sapphire blue shimmer. The shimmer is so stunning here. It’s a bit more of a microflake shimmer, and it glows out so intensely from the dark base, which builds to a true black in just two coats.

2 coats + top coat

Bloody Mary

swatch bkl bloody mary 2

Bloody Mary is a true red linear holo. Perfect two-coat formula. Best thing about this polish is it didn’t bleed color into my top coat at all, so I suspect it won’t be a stainer, or at least it won’t stain too badly.

Superb Owl

swatch bkl superb owl 2

Superb Owl is a indigo linear holo. The flame on this one is so strong. The color is like a dark gunmetal tinted a bit of a cool blue-purple. I think it is really elegant. I applied three coats but really only needed two.

2-3 coats + top coat

Operation Accidentally Kill the Baron

Operation Accidentally Kill the Baron is a strong silver linear holo. Not much to say about this one– it’s pretty classic. Two easy coats to opacity.

2 coats + top coat

I don’t live to drain, I drain to live

swatch bkl i don't live to drain 2

I don’t live to drain, I drain to live is a silver/green/blue/purple shifting multichrome. Very elegant colorway in a smooth formula that gets really close to opacity in two coats. I opted for a third for a perfect finish.

3 coats + top coat

Dark Greetings

swatch bkl dark greetings 2

Dark Greetings features a sheer dark base with a green/blue shifting magnetic effect and red/green shifting ghost flakes. I rushed a bit so the magnetic effect isn’t super crisp, but it’s easy to use just like any other BKL magnetic! I show it three coats on its own as well as one coat over black. I prefer the one coat over black because it’s faster and the iridescent components pop more strongly.

3 coats -or- 1 coat over black

Vampires Only

swatch bkl vampires only 2

I’ve saved what I think is the most interesting shade for last! Vampires Only is a black/red shifting multichrome with a silver magnetic effect. This is definitely the most creative use of the black/red pigment yet! The silver pops beautifully against both the black and the red.

2 coats + top coat
