Black Sheep Fall Collection Preview Plus One

As I mentioned yesterday, I love Black Sheep Lacquer.  Erin makes such fun, high quality polishes and is a pretty danged nice lady to boot. I have a couple of polishes from her upcoming fall collection that I received in my monthly subscription and one of my personal favorite polishes.  These were all paid for with my hard earned money so I have no obligation to be overly nice – but I can’t help it!  I love her polishes!!

First up is Smooth Criminal.  This polish will be available when she releases her Fall collection, which is available for preorder on her site now. It’s priced at $50 for full size (14mL) and $25 for minis.  Considering that there are EIGHT polishes in the collection – IT IS A STEAL. Smooth Criminal falls (har har) between royal and navy with an outstanding shimmer that’s meant to emulate the color of Michael Jackson’s tie in the “Smooth Criminal” video. I only know this because Mr. Tipsy is a huge MJ fan and he schooled me.

Here’s her Fall Collection glitter – Mustard Flake.  It’s packed with bronze hexes, gold holo glitter in various shapes, gold micro glitter, and iridescent glitter.  It looks great over lots of different colors so I did a sampling here.

The last polish is Blink.  A beautiful pink to blue duochrome that is downright magical over black polish. I used some chevron vinyl nail stickers that Mr. Tipsy made for me.  Pictures can’t capture how electric this looked in person.  It was like the polish was lighted from below.  Absolutely amazing.

Yes – that’s what it looks like in the bottle. A delicate, shimmery pink. And then BOOM!!!! Electric Blue!!!

Black Sheep does have a monthly subscription for $16 in the states, $20 in Canada, and $22 international. She sends two full size and one mini. I know that Canadian polish addicts have a hard time getting reliable shipping on a lot of subscription boxes but since BSL is based in Canada, you don’t have to have any worries!  No getting your sub a month after it’s shipped!  You can let her know your polish preferences and she’ll work with you to try and get you polishes you’ll love. She hasn’t failed me so far.

Check out Black Sheep Lacquer and tell her nailtipsy sent you!
