The Lacquer Ring – Inspired by Frosso

This month as you saw in our color inspiration post, we are doing nails inspired by Frosso. She is a very dear friend of ours who is behind the now retired blog Lacquer Me Silly. As sad as we are to see her retire, I’m sure you will see her pop up on Instagram from time to time ūüėČ

How can one choose just ONE look of Frosso’s to be inspired by, I love all of her nails. With Halloween being this week,¬†I decided to do one of her Halloween looks… since Lesley took the look I wanted. LOL Just kidding! She did an amazing job! All of the girls did!

I chose Frosso’s Halloween splatter. This is her look:¬† She transferred her files to wordpress so you can check out the full article here.

For this look I painted two coats of OPI’s Can’t Afjord not to. I splattered China Glaze’s Liquid Leather, Ulta’s Snow White, Sinful Colors Happy Ending, and Opi’s Do you have this color in Stock-holm. Not only can this look be messy but depending on your approach it can use a lot of polish so be careful.

I have only done one splatter, and had forgotten just how messy it can be.. wow LOL

The good thing is that I thought to use OPI’s Glitter off on my fingers so it minimized clean up a lot… however the way I held my hand when I did it, I didn’t think to glitter off my hands too… SMH

This is how it came out though, and I must say I absolutely love it!

Stamping Saturdays – Leopard Lover

It’s Saturday again! Today I am going to a craft show with my mom to see my cousin who makes these amazing hand painted glasses. Then I am going out with my girlfriend to lunch and then to pick up my OPI’s waiting for me at my polish store, the green, silver, and black from the OPI Coca Cola collection! ūüôā

Today I have a special gift from my girl V, Essence’s Me and my Lover. I stamped Essie’s Good as Gold overtop using my 80’s MoYou stamp and then painted China Glaze’s Liquid Leather in the spots.

The Lacquer Ring – Cherry Blossoms

We are back for our first Nail art group post from the Lacquer Ring. As we said before, Nicole from Polish Me, Please was in charge of picking our color this month which was orange and our nail art group post which is Cherry Blossoms. I already texted Nicole last night cursing her because I was so frustrated and hating how my Blossoms were coming out. Damn you Nicole! lol

When I think of Cherry Blossoms I think of Pink. I did some research and found some other colors. I decided to go with the white variety.

My sister is in town for a few weeks to visit!! She was over the other night so I had her help me pick a base color for my¬†Cherry Blossoms. She came up with¬†two coats of Darling Diva’s Dangerous Driver. My¬†branches I used a brush and mixed drops of Urban Decay’s Gunmetal and one of China Glazes’s¬†Liquid Leather. For my blossoms, I dotted them on using¬†Ulta’s Snow White. The Center I mixed Sinful Colors Happy Ending and Jessica’s Banana Peel. For the¬†pollen,¬†I lightly brushed the yellow again and tipped it with China Glaze Liquid Leather.

Stamping Saturdays – Dandelion

Today is Armed Forces Day and my local supermarket honored our local Veterans and my husband was one of them! They had a list of the Veterans and they picked 5 and he was chosen. It was such a nice day, they had a little ceremony, they gave all of the Veterans flowers, a fruit basket, a bank gift card, a letter from the Governor, and a Certificate.  They had a little lunch buffet and presented everyone with their certificates of appreciation. I was so happy that Don got picked and that we were all able to be a part of it.

Unfortunately, my pinky nail is still hella short but at least its not bloody anymore ūüė¶ My backyard is covered in dandelions! Ava runs through the field with her mouth open and just attacks them, she absolutely loves it! In honor of this gorgeous day I did two coats of OPI’s No Room for the blues, and I stamped Ulta’s Snow White and Red Angels RA-318. The stamp is more of a flower with leaves on the stem so I just used the top part of it and didn’t use the leaves. I then painted the stem using China Glaze’s Liquid Leather as the stem because I didn’t like the way green looked over the blue.
