The Lacquer Ring – Tokidoki Unicorn

So as you have noticed the pattern we usually post TLR on Thursdays bi-weekly. Well this prompt we were all turds and super busy that we have all posted scattered rather than together like the intention of TLR. In any event this prompt was picked by Lesley @Misfitlesley inspired by the Tokidoki Unicorns that Frosso sent us last year. They came in these cute little boxes that you get a random one and surprisingly enough we all got different ones! Too stinkin cute!

My unicorns name is Dolce and I love him. I used OPI’s Going My Way or Norway? Then I hand painted on an angle Julep’s Carrie. For the sprinkles I hand painted on Opi’s Hey Baby and Cirque’s Tavern on the Teal. I painted the unicorn horn on my index finger using a nail art white. Finally I had a stamp of a small heart and I used Illamasqua’s Boosh and I hand painted the crossbones below it.

Make sure you check out all of the other Unicorns everyone got and their take on their little friends nails 😉

The Lacquer Ring – Green

It’s TLR time again, Nicole’s up this month with her choice and she chose Green, very fitting for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day!

I intended this to be much different than it turned out.. it’s not terrible or a fail just not the look I was going for. :/  I did Cirque’s Erda and topped it with ILNP’s Flakies (whattttt? again!! i know) Supernova.

So Supernova has Blue, Green, and Purple flakies. On my swatch stick, yes I swatch each color.. It looked mostly green with a little bit of purple. So before I move on let me explain about my swatches because there seems to be some buzz in some of the groups I’m in on FB. Anyway… I have these swatch plates below, and every time I get a new color, before it goes away I paint it and put the name of the polish. All of my polishes are sorted by color, not by shade, lol just all greens together, etc. I also put how many coats it took to get that so that I know if it took 3 coats, it’s not a good stamping polish. Some people think this is a waste, some people think that you can just look at the bottle.. but Erda is a perfect example of why that doesn’t work… For me Erda looks much darker in the bottle. Now I know by looking at my swatches… Just sayin 😉 lol

Nail-polish-font-b-swatches-b-font-display-boards-chuck-nail-polish-color-card-display-panelAnyway back to the mani.. so on the swatch plate Supernova looked more green on it’s on, I guess paired with the green it took on the other colors, which is fine just not what I’d hoped for is all.

IMG_7388So in this angle you see mostly the purple flakes, but at the tips and in the middle of my pinky, and the left side of my index you can really see the green, it’s more subtle because the green matches Erda, but that’s more of what I was looking for here. Either way I think it came out good, It’s just not as St. Patty’s Day as I wanted.

Here’s some more angles

IMG_7384See it’s a more even mixed of both the green and the purple on this one.

IMG_7383Same with this, more even mixture.

So what do you think, are you sick of me doing flakies yet? I just can’t help myself! AND she just came out with holo ones, I am trying very hard to not give in… lol

What’s your favorite green polish?

Here are the other girls green manis

Fleur est Belle

Amy, Frosso, and I did some more polish destruction, as usual!

 

We went to International Playground and bought lots of goodies from Cirque. My favorite one I picked up was Fleur est Belle.  It’s a Jelly pink with gorgeous whites, golds, & pinks glitter flecks. I painted one coat over two thin coats of OPI’s I think in Pink. I then stamped some stars using Essie’s Good as Gold.

This is such a girly manicure I can’t even take it. I love it so much! What’s your favorite girlie polish?

 

The Lacquer Ring – Holographic Pink

We’re at it again, this time it was my turn to pick! For our color collaboration I asked the girls to do a Holographic Pink look, or as a last resort if they didn’t have a holo pink, I asked them to do a ‘bright ass pink’ look. hehe I am keeping the nail art collab a secret so hopefully the other girls don’t spill the beans. 🙂

As I mentioned in my other post Frosso from Lacquer me Silly, Amy from The Fancy Side, and I met up in NYC and did some damage with some new Cirque polishes! I had one I was gonna use but I decided to use the one I got that day since I got it with two of the TLR girls. I give you Cirque’s PowWow.

I painted two coats of PowWow and stamped PUEEN37 using Darling Diva’s Diamond. I think this is like the third look I did with this silver holo, I’m in love but not as much as I am with this pink.
