The Lacquer Ring – Unicorns Unite!

You have seen us all now for many weeks for our ‘Stamping Saturday’ looks, and on occasion its counterpart that didn’t quite take, ‘Textured Tuesday’ we are back with an all new endeavor.  After many weeks of texts/emails we have finally all voted and decided on our official group name.  The Lacquer Ring!

We are a group of crazy polish chicks who spend way too much time emailing each other all day long about polish, life, woes and more polish. While we haven’t all technically met in person (except for Cynthia & Lesley and Me, Amy, & Frosso), we are pretty good friends and hope that we can all meet one day. Unfortunately, the universe will end that day because that much awesomeness is not allowed all in one place. While you may already know the ladies who make up The Lacquer Ring, let me introduce them all, Including myself the other girls are: (PS totally took this last part from Cynthia because it was not only totally brilliant but absolutely true and couldn’t have said it better!)

Amy from The Fancy Side

Frosso from Lacquer Me Silly

Jessica from Once Upon A Polish

Lesley from IG @MisfitLesley

Nicole from Polish Me, Please!

Siobhan from For The Love Of Nail Art

Cynthia from Of Life and Lacquer

Our newest collaboration will be a bi-weekly post. Each month one of the girls is designated to pick both a color theme and a design/nail art theme for us all to participate together in a post. First up is Nicole for the month of May. She sent us all this polish to do a group post to announce our newest venture to you all. It’s Unicorn Bubbles by Candy Lacquer.


As soon as I got this polish I just could not wait to try it out so I did it overtop Zoya Darcy (which I also got from Nicole) so this look is from a few weeks ago. I did my accent nail with Darling Diva’s LE Miracle Cure

I just love how it made the Bubbles pop more made them appear to be brighter when in reality on their own are more of a pastel.

So knowing that we were scheduling this post for today I had wanted to try this over a pastel and did so last night. I did my left hand with Jessica’s Strawberry Shake it. Can I just say how much I absolutely love this bubble glitter overtop this pink, like I do not want to take it off love…

And finally, I was experimenting and trying to see what it would look like over other colors and so my right hand I used Jessica’s Barely Blueberry and this was how it turned out…

I didn’t hate it, it definitely looks more pastel overtop the blue and the pink, but I prefer it over the pink way better.

Well this was a longer post than normal! Lots of info, lots to look forward to hopefully you agree! 🙂 I will be back here for Stamping Saturday. The Official start date to the new Lacquer Ring bi-weekly posts is May 8th

NOTD 128 – Featured Color Friday – Gemma

It’s Friday!! woot woot! 🙂 So this week is a featured color brought to you by the lovely Frosso. My Birthday twin got me this polish back in December for my Birthday. It’s “Zoya – Gemma” and it really is a gem. This is an odd color for me, I don’t have anything else like it, it’s not my normal go to, but I saw it on others and just fell in love with it. It’s an olivey type of green with little hints of blue shimmer, you can kind of see it shimmering in the flash spots on the pictures below. This is three thin coats of the color.


I also got this fabulous two-fingered ring that I am simply in love with last weekend at NY and Company. I have been looking for a two-fingered ring for a while now, and what better ring, its like it was made for me as it’s a bow. (Speaking of which I just got some new custom bows in from Em’s shop I can’t wait to show you)


Alright guys, that’s all for now. 🙂 Have a good weekend!

NOTD 110 – Featured Color Friday – Suri

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so I will do a few Valentine’s themed nails. Today I started out by featuring Suri and turned it into the theme.

I got “Zoya – Suri” a few weeks ago during the ‘Zoya 3 promo’. I painted two thin coats of “OPI – Nail Envy” as my base, (which I am loving so far by the way!!), then two thin coats of “Zoya – Suri”. Once try, on both my ring and pointer fingers on both hands, I stamped using “Essie – No place like Chrome” and my “Cheeky Stamp -CH53” to stamp the beating hearts.


This purple is gorgeous, you can see especially in this picture the multiple facets to it, some blue and some pink very, very fine shimmer to make the purple pop even more.



What do you think of my Valentine’s mani?

NOTD 106-Featured Color Friday – Charla

Yay! It’s Friday! As promised, I have one of the other Zoyas to share with you, “Charla” I don’t have much to say today, so I will just right on to the gorgeous polish 😀


This next one is kind of blurry but I just loved how sparkly and shimmery it looked 🙂


Well guys, that’s it for me today, quick post 😀 lots of pics. I did pick up “OPI’s Nail Envy” yesterday after multiple suggestions, I used it for this mani and will continue, I will do a full report in a few weeks of how it’s worked for me.

NOTD 96 – Cheryl

Hey guys! so, I was able to pump out a quick post for you guys today. No giveaway pics yet; working on those goodies still 🙂

Today’s polish (please excuse my nubs) 😦 is called “Cheryl by Zoya” (It also just so happens that both my mom and mom-in-law are both named Cheryl, so added bonus!!) 😀 The Zoya website describes it as: “A smoky brown base completely packed with metallic copper, gold and mahogany metallic microglitter. A jeweled brown for a very rich look!” I agree! My Girlfriend Gina gave me this polish a while back and I had not tried until now, and I LOVE it. see what you think..



This last photo, I took this morning, I have been taking Airborne for a couple of days because everyone at work is sick, and I still ended up getting sick! 😦 I BETTER get over this by my birthday (Sat) or I will be very upset! 😦


Alright loves, I will be back hopefully by the end of the week with a quick post on the giveaway details and some fabulous guest posters! I just got an email from a few yesterday so stay tuned for all that good stuff 🙂

*Picture Heavy* My Polish Addiction (Updated)

This is an update to my Polish Addiction Post, the original can be found here. My dad made this shelf for me, and it’s been a work in progress ever since. I wanted to paint it, so my husband and I did three coats of a nice Cherry finish and two gloss top coats. I went to put it back and it kept tipping because it’s sitting on carpet, and it’s sooo heavy. I did not want to have another issue like I did here because that was just not cool. 😦 I have been procrastinating in getting brackets to secure the shelf to the wall and, FINALLY this weekend we put it up for real 😀 I also finished all my swatches  that I have been working on for a while now, so I had a very productive Saturday. Here is the final product. 🙂 ❤

And here are some pictures up close of my Collection, I will be updating my collection page here soon with a full list of my Collection.
