Baroness X: Psychedelia Collection

Thursday, March 16, 2017 Ashley K 2 Comments


Hey guys! Today I have the Baroness X Psychedelia Collection to show you! I've been dying to see this collection since Demi teased us back in December with the Oracle prototypes in the MMM box. Needless to say, the collection does not disappoint. There are four shimmery, shifty toppers in this collection that are all just jaw dropping.

Avatar is a red-orange to green shifting pigment (the coveted unicorn pee!) and red-orange to green shifting iridescent glitter. This is like a sister version of Sir Cockicorn. The difference being the glitters are bigger and this one has red to green shifting iridescent glitter instead of tiny holographic microglitters. Formula on this is easy peasy. These are all a little on the thicker side, but it doesn't effect application in the slightest. Shown below is two coats over black with a glossy top coat.

And here's Avatar over Doomjelly. I do want to say that with both Doomjelly and Vulcan Blood (you'll see that one further down the post) there is some visible nail line for me. I have a seriously strong one and even with four coats of Doomjelly it still shows through for me. It's not as noticeable in person, but it is there. So if that's something that bothers you and you want to go for this look I suggest finding a purple creme in that shade. Shown below is two coats over Doomjelly with a glossy top coat.

Oracle is a green to violet shifting pigment with green to purple shifting Chromaflair microglitter. This one. Man, this one is the one that had me itching for this collection (and I still have it on!). The green in this one is so super vibrant, I seriously love it. Super easy application on this and it looks so gorgeous over both colors I did it on. Shown below is two coats over black with a glossy top coat.

And here is Oracle over Doomjelly. Now this one, man. I had such a hard time capturing how utterly gorgeous this looks over Doomjelly. Oracle completely transforms it in to this sea of shimmery aqua, purple goodness. Shown below is two coats over Doomjelly with a glossy top coat.

Oz is a gold to blue shifting pigment with gold to blue Chromaflair microglitter. So this one is one that I liked in the bottle but was seriously blown away by on the nails. I was not at all expecting it to be so vibrant over black and I definitely was not expecting how unique it turned out over Vulcan Blood. Formula was easy peasy on this one too. Shown below is two coats over black with a glossy top coat.

And here's Oz over Vulcan Blood. Let me just say, I was in awe of how this transformed on top of Vulcan Blood. It really pulled out some colors in this that just didn't pop on the black. Shown below is two coats over Vulcan Blood with a glossy top coat.

Realist is a brilliant indigo pigment with blue to red shifting Chromaflair microglitter and sprinkling of red-orange to green shifting iridescent glitter. This one was far and wide the hardest of the bunch to capture well. Those dark shimmers are hard to get properly. This is gorgeous though, kinda dark, vampy, and gothy. Especially over black. Formula on this one was just as the others, excellent. Shown below is two coats over black with a glossy top coat.

And here is Realist over Vulcan Blood. This combination was far and wide the hardest to capture on camera. The shimmer and base are so similar in color that the detail of the shimmer gets lost in the photos. It's much more shimmery in person and these photos don't do this combination justice, but they were the best I could do. Shown below is two coats over Vulcan Blood with a glossy top coat.

Whew! That's a lot of photos for only four polishes. But that's what happens when you have polishes so complex they require multiple photos to show it off properly. ;) So, release details. I've got some good news, these are being released this evening! These will be available on the Baroness X website at 6PM PT (9PM ET) tonight! There are 25 sets ready to ship in both full size and mini (the minis are a limited run though, once those are gone they're gone), after those are gone the full size will switch to a preorder. The full size (15ml) set will be $48 and the mini size (8ml) will be $30. These can also be bought individually, Avatar and Oracle are $14 and Oz and Realist are $12. Which ones are your favorites? Let me know in the comments!

    1. Thank you! And I definitely agree, Demi's polishes NEVER disappoint! I love that she's just over there doing her own thing, not paying too much attention to the current fads because she's too busy making pretty polishes lol
