Hello beautiful people! I hope you’re having a great start to your week. Tonight, I’ll be sharing swatches of the upcoming Spring collection from Bianca of Red Eyed Lacquer! This collection, If You’re Good, Life Is Good, is based on the movie Matilda! We will look at six fun polishes as well as a fantastically scented multipurpose body butter.
If You’re Good, Life Is Good
I’m Big, You’re Little
I’m Big, You’re Little is a pale yellow creme polish. It applies smoothly but has a tendency for streaks if you’re not patient between coats. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.

Thanks For Not Telling
Thanks For Not Telling is a pretty pale lavender creme polish. It’s such a pleasant shade! Again, I’ll caution with not rushing the application so that you can avoid streaks. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.

Hey Dip Face, Eat A Carrot
Hey Dip Face, Eat A Carrot is a pale orange creme polish, just like, well, a carrot! I can’t get over these names! It shows up lighter in my photo than it does to the naked eye. Not by much though, it’s really close to a faded peach. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.

My Mommy Thinks They’re Sweet
My Mommy Thinks They’re Sweet is my favorite of the cremes. This is a darling pale pink! I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.

1972 Olympics is the flakie crelly of the collection. The base here is a light grey that is filled with gunmetal micro flakies. This monochromatic polish has an easy application and dries down smooth. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.

There’s Fish Fingers In The Microwave
There’s Fish Fingers In The Microwave is the glitter crelly of this collection! Isn’t it fun!? This polish features a mix of purple, pink, blue, and orange glitters in a pale green base. Thankfully, this polish doesn’t bring to mind fish fingers, but yummy ice cream with sprinkles! It applies easily and dries down with just a little texture. I’m wearing two to three coats with a glossy topcoat.
Based off of Matilda’s mom, Mrs. Wormwood….Outrageous just like her outfits.
My Little Bumblebee Da-Balmer
Also included in this Spring collection is Bianca’s Da-Balmer scented in a nourishing Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey. It’s such a comforting smell! This is my first time using this balm and I quickly learned that a little goes a long way! While it is solid in the jar, it melts really quickly when applied unto the skin.
Based off of Ms. Honey.
$5.00 for a 1 oz jar
Abstract Matilda Nail Art
I did a quick and easy abstract nail art using all six of the nail polishes in the collection! I love how well this shows off the palette!
