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.

So these aren’t exactly as I’d hoped they turn out, but I ended up liking them. It was fun to see what all of the girls came up with. See theirs for yourself below!

 

Day 13 Animal Print – 31Challenge

“What do tigers dream of when they take their little tiger snooze? Do they dream of mauling zebras, or Halle Berry in her Catwoman suit?” – Stu – “The Hangover”

The next day of the Nail Challenge was to do animal print. I felt inspired to do something different on this one, something other than the moist common zebra or leopard prints. I did some searching and thought that Tiger print would look pretty cool, plus I had just the right paint for it. I had recently received neon orange in my latest Birchbox that I just had to use for today’s look.

My Polishes are”Color Club in Lava Lamp”, “Sinful Colors in Black”. I also used “OPI – Base and Top Coat” a toothpick for the stripes, and scotch tape to line up the tips.

Here is a shot at my left hand

And the Right:

And the final look all together: 🙂

Day 7 black & white – 31Challenge

So this is my attempt at Black and White nails for the Challenge … When I think of black and white I think Tuxedo, but that’s been done, as have been dice but I wanted to try the dice look.

I used my Sinful Colors in Blackest Black, Milani- White and My OPI Base and Top Coat for this look

My husband got involved and assisted in suggesting for me to do the tips at an angle to look like if I turned my hands to the side it was the angle of the dice something fun, let me know what you think

So first is the messy picture as soon as I was done. I was also highly upset as no matter how long I took to let the dots dry when I put the top coat on, it bled a little. But oh well I won’t have these on that long.

Here is another angle again, messy

Next day all clean 🙂

And a little closer, you can see the bleeding here..

Well that was my day 7 black and white nails, I hoped you enjoyed them let me know what you think!
