Zoya Spencer & Jindie Nails Pretty Penny

Hello Lacquer Lovers!
Over the course of the week I went back to nubbins! I can never decide what length I want, but hopefully the nubbins will be around for a while. 


This is two coats of Zoya Spencer with a double accent of Jindie Nails Pretty Penny.


I am loving these two polishes together! They remind me of fall, which I hope comes soon, as it is still getting up to almost ninety degrees here. 


What are your thoughts on the double accent?
So far, I'm loving it!

Daring Digits Spot On Over a Black & White Gradient

Hello Lacquer Lovers! 
Today I have a pretty awesome nail art look inspired by @mypolishedtips13 and @whimsicalicious on Instagram! I saw this look when I was browsing Instagram very early in the morning and a few hours later I was flaunting this look out and about.


I started off with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. For the gradient I used Rimmel London Black Satin and Petites Vintage Gray. I topped the gradient off with a gradient of  Daring Digits Spot On. I applied some top coat and the look was complete!


I love the way this looks so much! Next time I plan on using a glitter topper with smaller glitters to get more of a gradient effect. Maybe I'll use Finger Paints Santa's Magic?


Have you ever tried something like this before? Would you try it in the future? Let me know below!

Gothic Lace Nail Art Foil

* The following nail art foil was sent to me for my honest review. For more information, please visit my disclosure policy.*

Hello Lacquer Lovers!
Today I have a gothic lace style manicure using N.Nail Noble Black Lace Flower Nail Foil Transfer [NNAIL-E32] from KKCenterHK. 



I applied the foil over two coats of Sinful Colors Hazard with Ciate Foil Fix. 
The foil set I received had a small bottle of foil glue, but the brush was too long for the bottle, bending it to the point of no return. 



The foil has a beautiful design. There are multiple flower designs all over the foil with a honey comb style background. 
Nail foils are super easy to use and a little goes a long way!



I'll be back on Sunday! :)

Pineapple Skittle

Hello Lacquer Lovers!
Today I have a super cute pineapple skittle, inspired by elleandish on YouTube.
I think this is the perfect manicure to celebrate the end of the summer!

Thumb & Pinky
I used two coats of China Glaze Metro Pollen-Tin. Then, I added some gold studs to add something a little extra!

Index
I started off with two coats of China Glaze At Vase Value. Then, I added three white stripes using L.A. Colors Art Deco White Striper and added a gold stud.

Middle
I started off with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme. Then taking China Glaze Metro Pollen-Tin I drew an oval. I used L.A. Colors Art Deco Stripers in Bright Green and Bright Orange to add the pineapple's characteristics. The pineapple is a little off center, but practice makes perfect. :)

Ring
I started off with two coats of China Glaze At Vase Value and I topped it off with one thick coat of a Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Bling-Tastic.

What do you think? Have you ever thought about rocking fruit as a mani?

How to Revive an Old Manicure {ft. KKCenterHk}

   * The following nail art foil was sent to me for my honest review. For more information, please visit my disclosure policy.*

 Hello Lacquer Lovers! 
Do you ever need to redo your manicure, but don't have the time? Today I will show you how to revive your old manicure in seconds thanks to KKCenterHK!


To revive your old manicure using nail art foils you will need three things: top coat, nail foils, and nail foil glue.
I used NYC Grand Central Station, N.NAIL Lovely Flower Sea Nail Foil Transfer [NNAIL-E28], and nail foil glue {I used Ciate Foil Fix}. The foil set I received had a small bottle of foil glue, but the brush was too long for the bottle and was bent.


{Optional}
First, you want to top coat your old manicure so you have a smooth surface. This is especially important if you have any chips. I didn't do this step, as my polish had not chipped yet.
My base color is OPI I Think in Pink.


Next, apply your foil glue. You can apply it all over the nail or in a design. I chose to do a chevron french manicure. Wait until the glue is tacky and apply the nail foil. Apply top coat to seal in the foil.


Tada! You have now revived your old manicure! This is the way to go if your pinched on time, as it took me less than ten minutes total!
