Night Owl's Psych! Collection & March COTM

*Products shown here were provided to me as press samples in exchange for photos and feedback. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

This Friday, Night Owl is releasing a gorgeous collection of six vibrant polishes inspired by the show Psych, along with March's buttery new Creme of the Month! The colors of the Psych! collection were inspired by the show and named after some of the most used exclamations of Shawn and Gus (with the exception of the one inspired by the theme song). This is maker Lindsay's all time favorite show, and it never fails to make her laugh! I remember loving the show when I was younger as well. After school, I'd come home, sit down with my mom, and we would watch back to back reruns of both Psych and Monk. The nostalgia vibes are certainly strong with this collection.

All these polishes are set to release Friday, March 19th, at 6:00pm Mountain Time (8:00pm Eastern Time).

March's Creme of the Month

"Custard"

Price: $8

Description: A pale yellow creme. Four finger swatches show 2 coats, left with no top coat to show natural gloss finish and matte top coat. Also shown stamped over a grassy green for an easy and cute spring mani. In these photos, I do have on a gloss top coat. The green is Heather’s Hues “Petrichor” [PR] and the image is from plate BC11 by Biutee [purchased].

Thoughts: This formula is perfect! It’s buttery smooth and dries with a perfect gloss finish. I've said it here before, but Night Owl is my go-to for creme polishes. They always apply wonderfully and most are opaque in just a single coat. For this creme in particular, some may be able to use a single coat. For even coverage, I opted for 2 coats, which I believe is perfectly acceptable for a pastel yellow like this.

Psych! Collection

"C'mon Son"

Price: $11 individually | $60 for full collection

Description: This is a bright orange with bronze metallic micro flakies and blue/purple multichrome flakes. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: I get super orange soda vibes from this one! Also, this is a perfect polish for Florida Gator fans! Application was super smooth and easy with wonderful opacity. The flakes are of the smaller variety and create a beautiful speckled look.

"I've Heard it Both Ways"

Price: $11 individually | $60 for full collection

Description: This is a bright purple with purple metallic micro flakies and red/copper/gold multichrome flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Application was smooth in thin, easy coats. The individual coats are somewhat sheer, but build beautifully. The big, warm toned flakes are perfect in the cool purple base and are reminiscent of fallen leaves.

"Not Inclined to Resign to Maturity"

Price: $11 individually | $60 for full collection

Description: This is a bright yellow with yellow metallic micro flakies, copper/gold & lime/green/blue multichrome flakes. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: If you're not familiar with the show, this is the one named after a line in the theme song. I was surprised to find this one to be the most opaque of the bunch, considering its lime-yellow tone. This polish stands out from the others for me, as the flakes seem to be the smallest in size and there are a couple different colors of multichrome flakes used rather than just one.

"Suck It"

Price: $11 individually | $60 for full collection

Description: This is a bright pink with red metallic micro flakies and green/teal blue/purple multichrome flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is a gorgeous electric pink! It's bright and beautiful. The base color itself leans red, but it is a vibrant and bold cerise pink. Also, the flakes do have a green shift when facing forward that I found to be very hard to capture on camera as the flakes themselves are super shifty. Individual coats are on the sheer side, but build to perfect opacity.

"Wait For Iiiiit!"

Price: $11 individually | $60 for full collection

Description: This is a bright green with green metallic micro flakies and purple/red/yellow/green multichrome flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is a perfect, bold Kelly green. The shimmer from the micro flakes is mesmerizing. This may be out of left field, but I get strong Minecraft vibes from the color combinations used in this one. Thin coats sit sheer, but build to perfect opacity.

"You Know That's Right"

Price: $11 individually | $60 for full collection

Description: This is a bright blue with blue metallic micro flakies and purple/burgundy/copper multichrome flakes. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is such a gorgeous, deep sapphire blue. The visual texture created by the micro flakies is super satisfying. There is definitely a mixture of both medium and smaller flakes, but the majority seem to be more small. Again, application was perfectly smooth and controlled.

Again, all these beauties are set to release Friday, March 19th, at 6:00pm Mountain Time (8:00pm Eastern Time), at nightowllacquer.com!
