Bluebird Lacquer: Multichrome Madness Customs January 2018



After frigid temps, 7″ inches of snow and disgusting behavior all around, the weather has finally set itself straight.  We’ve had a taste of spring all weekend long, and I’m seriously about thisclose to putting pants on I’m just so dang excited.  I mean, I won’t cuz it’s No Effort Sunday and pants are forbidden, but weather like this makes me think about it for 2.5 seconds.  Look at me, being good and virtuous and all around most boring person of all time ever, taking this Spelling Bee Champion of 1987 nerd thing to a whooooole nother level.  Cuz who’s breaking the rules like a dadgum crazy person?  NOT THIS LADY.  Does this qualify for bonus points then, cuz seriously, I’ll take a billion.

So, no-pants aside, today is a beautiful day and I’m soaking it in from the comfort of my couch and an electric blanket set to the highest heat level possible.  House is quiet as hubby has already left for work, and I’m reveling in the peace like how I used to revel in an open bag of Cheetos back before the Diet of Potato Chip-Free Hell dragged it’s hideous self into my life.  However, if a sandwich could appear in my hand like magic, well then I’m not sure how this day could get better.  Unless Leonardo DiCaprio actually brings the sandwich TO ME, well then maybe.

Heyyyy, multichromes are happening, though!  That’s another good thing about today.  Bluebird Lacquer is in the spotlight for January, and Lou made a quad of shifty goodies exclusively for the members of Multichrome Madness on Facebook.  Let’s spend some money, shall we?  WE SHALL!

Yep.  Doing this.  IMMEDIATELY.

Lest we spend 18 years in here attempting to keep the tongue on the inside, let’s get right into the colors.  There’s a skosh of a Polish Emergency in progress which I’ll explain at the end, so the quicker we get down there the quicker you can buy nail polish and the QUICKER you can be happy on a Sunday with no pants on.

Bahahahahaha. Kidding.  If you’re not already happy on a Sunday with no pants on, well then I am var var concerned about the state of your brain.

OMG, what? The multichromes are making me stoooopid.  Let’s move on before other dumb things happen.  Your official rundown:


DESCRIPTION:  A copper/pink/gold/orange shifty holographic named in honor of Lou’s Bird of the Month, the Phoenix

OPACITY:  Two glorious coats

The color of the most beautiful sunset of your life!  I’m not condoning buying just one, but if you have to (due to groceries, electricity and other lame adult responsibilities), well then this one is my favorite.  In the shopping cart it goes! Weeeee!


DESCRIPTION:  A turquoise/violet/bronze shifter with added micro flakies

OPACITY:  Three coats

This one sparkles like someone paid it some money.  Good gracious, she’s pretty!  The formula is a bit thin and sheer on the first coat, but builds up nicely and then you have a magical manicure and a complete driving hazard rolled into one.

Angled my hands so you can see the purple shift peeping through.  It’s more evident in person without all the hand gymnastics, but the purple is the secondary shift so it doesn’t want to photograph as easily as the turquoise.  Turquoise got her jazz hands on, let’s just say.

Anyway, the purple:


DESCRIPTION:  A rose/bronze/copper/ultraviolet straight multichrome

OPACITY:  I did three coats, but two might be okay for some; I’m extra obnoxious when it comes to applying nail polish, and I see naked spots were there are none.  Might be a superpower, might be a medical condition.  Either way, though, three coats just seemed right.

This color surprised me.  In the bottle it was pink and orange.  That’s it.  But then under the lamps, purple came out front and center and helllloooooo … DEAD.  Seriously, this one ended up being so much more beautiful than expected.  Cue the drool buckets!  The tongue is officially lolling about outside my body.

Ever so slight tilt so the coppery/orange gets a turn:


DESCRIPTION:  A magenta/lime/gold/copper holographic shifter

OPACITY:  Three coats

Similar in formula and sparkle-factor as the turquoise one above, this one also needed three coats both for opacity and ultimate color payout.  The shift in here, though, is LEGIT NO JOKE.  Sooo many colors peeping out!  You can see all of them all at the same time, and it’s fan-freaking-tastic.  But with the tiniest move of the hand, BOOM.  More colors.  It’s quite possibly one of the most glorious things you’ll ever see.
