The Lacquer Ring – Magenta-ish

So it’s that time again, The Lacquer Ring is back at it, and this month is Lesley!  She chose and I quote, Magenta-ish, lol. I wasn’t quite sure which color to do, I don’t know that I have very many Mangenta colors. I have more this is definitely pink, or this is definitely purple colors so I hope you agree on my choice, haha!

For my TLR mani I chose Morgan Taylors Sarong but so Right. I did a little french mani tip using Sephora Formula X’s Light my Fire. Take a look and tell me what you think, Mangenta-ish enough?

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 😉

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 Saturday – Wildwoods by the Sea

My local peeps will love this theme and color! This weekend it’s Labor Day weekend here. I just got these GORGEOUS colors from Philly Loves Lacquer and I have one of them to show you today. As she is local her polish names are cool because you can relate to all of them. The inspiration for her to start her line was drawn by her fascination with the history and landmarks of the City she loved and she combined that along with her love for nail polish and voila Philly Loves Lacquer was born!

Today I have Wildwoods by the Sea. Everyone knows that in this area Wildwood is THE place to be during the summer. Especially this ‘last’ weekend, Labor Day weekend. Wildwood will be Packed to the core this weekend with anyone and everyone celebrating their last fun in ‘the sun weekend before the unofficial end to summer.

“Love those wild wild Wildwood days”

Wildwoods by the Sea is “is a creamy deep dark seafoam base with a strong scattered holographic finish” so in other words, stunning. Sticking to the theme I stamped some seashells using my MoYou plate and Essie’s Good as Gold. Here’s my ‘End of Summer, Wildwoods mani’

Stamping Saturdays – Frittery Monarchs

Today is my 10th Wedding Anniversary, so I am scheduling this post to post today. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t ::fingers crossed:: My husband was in the Army and we were stationed in Texas and we got married at the Justice of Peace. As most of our family was not able to attend, once he got out of the Army, and we moved back home, we had a Vow Renewal Ceremony and Reception for our 5th Anniversary. Today, we have now been married 10 years, where the heck does the time go. You always hear people say it but I never thought I’d say it, it’s absolutely true. He still is to this day the love of my life and I can’t imagine my life without him.

So you are not loosing it, ( if you are keeping track that is ) TLR or The Lacquer Ring was due this Thursday for our Nail art challenge group post. The other girls are such slackers! hehe so we delayed until next Thursday. For this week’s Stamping Saturday I have a look that I am absolutely in love with.

butterflies-gif-4

This weeks look is Monarch butterflies. I used Ruffian’s Fox Hunt with one coat of overlay using Venique’s Forever Fritters, stamped with China Glaze’s Liquid Leather using MoYou Pro Collection 5 stamp. I then hand painted in the white dots using China Glaze’s White out.

I absolutely love the way this came out, it is sooo much prettier and shimmery-er in person.

Butterflies are very special to me. Butterflies always find me, all of my plants attract them, (on purpose 😉 )I have such good luck with them I even held a few before. But even more important than, that in my family we say they are a sign of our loved ones watching over us in a way. A family member had passed who loved butterflies and on the day of her funeral in the rain a butterfly landed on her grave as if to tell our family that she was alright. When my grandfather passed I felt as though every time I saw a butterfly flying so close to me or allowing me to hold it, I felt it was him doing the same. Has anyone ever had an experience like that at all?

There you have it, now go check out the other girls looks!

The Lacquer Ring – Chartreuse

So this month it’s Jess from Once Upon a Polish’s turn, for our color she chose chartreuse. I am personally not a big fan of this color.. lol I had to improvise. The closest I have to chartreuse was OPI’s Did it on em, because this is such an ugly color, again sorry Jess.. lol I decided that it reminded me of the 70’s. I chose to make my nails look like a 70’s couch or pants. I stamped Cirque’s Mink using my plaid stamp as well as Avon’s Saturn using the same stamping plate, just stamping it over the brown.

Here is my inspiration lol

 So there you have it, there’s my nails for our Chartreuse collab. It’s not that I hate this color.. its more that I think it looks terrible on my nails with my skin tone, okay and maybe a little that I hate it lol.

Here are the other Lacquer Ring manis- keep checking back as we might have some late posts 🙂

Stay tuned, in two weeks will be her pick for our nail art theme 🙂

Stamping Saturdays – Baby girl

Well no baby yet, but any day now! I don’t know if I told you guys or not but my brother-in-law and his fiancée are pregnant and my niece is due any day now! In honor of her arrival I did an overly girly manicure. She is being kind of stubborn so I was hoping that maybe this would help. Quite possibly she’ll arive tonight or tomorrow 😀

For this mani I painted two coats of Morgan Taylor’s Prettier in pink. Before I stamped, I also topped the pink with China Glaze’s Travel in Colour. I stamped Ulta’s Snow White using PUEEN36 stamp.

This is in my light-box

The Lacquer Ring – Tribal

As promised, we are back this time with my pick for the nail art theme and I chose Tribal. I had done tribal nails a few years ago when I first started my blog and did those free hand with all kinds of crazy fun colors so this time I went for a little less bold more simplistic.

Here are my nails when I did the 31 day nail art challenge

 

collageI went with Ulta’s Concrete Evidence as my base and stamped my MoYou plate on top using Sinful Colors Black and I accented some dots using Nubar’s Lustful Red.

IMG_3405IMG_3404

You will notice I have nubs again!!! 😦 My nails were just getting long and I slammed my finger pointing straight toward the wall… (yea don’t ask, I’m clumsy) and my ring finger broke! I hate different lengths so I had to trim them all. Once they start to grow back though I think I am going to stick with the rounded look for now. 🙂

Well there you have it, here is my Tribal look, what did you think? Don’t forget to check out the other #TLR girls for their take on tribal.
