Magestical Fleur De Lis Long Drop Earrings Review, Nail Art, & Giveaway

 * The following products were sent to me for my honest review. For more information, please visit my disclosure policy.*
Hello Lacquer Lovers!

Today I have something a little different for you- a jewelry review, along with nail art to match, and a giveaway!

I received the Fleur De Lis Long Drop Earrings from They retail for $8.50USD.
These earrings have a length of about 12 inches and they would match great with a little black dress.
I did try these on, but I have very sensitive ears. I lasted maybe a minute with them on and then had to remove them due to the reaction it was causing with my ears (Ouch!). With that said, if you have sensitive ears, these are not for you.

Of course, I had to do some nail art based off of these. 
I chose to go with a very simple look. I used OPI Glitzerland and SOPI It's Real 18K Gold Top Coat, along with clear and gold rhinestones. 
This look accents the earrings perfectly, as the colors are spot on!

 Now onto the giveaway!
This is open international. You will win a $20.00USD gift voucher to This giveaway is opens today and closes April 6, 2014 at 11:59pm.
Good luck! :)

Neon Zebra Gradient

Hello Lacquer Lovers!
Today I have a very easy to achieve and quick nail art look! My polish bestie over at Manis & Makeovers did something similar, so make sure to check her post out as well!

To start off this look, I painted my nails one coat of white using Wet N Wild French White Creme. Then, taking a makeup sponge I sponged two coats of four Color Clubs I picked up this weekend at Ross. They have no names, just numbers. The teal is 131004, the blue is 131007, the purple is 131003, and the pink is 131004.

I finished off the look with zebra stripes using Milani Black Sketch. 
I had to use my phone for these pictures, as I could not get my camera to be color accurate. :(

I usually don't wear my nail art looks for long, but I wore this one for three days because I loved it so much! This nail art look even recruited some new readers from a local restaurant (Hello girls!).

I hope that some of y'all will recreate this look. If you do, make sure to post it on my Facebook wall, as I'd love to see it!

Twinsie Thursday: St. Patrick's Day

Hello Lacquer Lovers! Guess what time it is! Twinsie Thursday! Make sure to head over HERE to see my look!

Hello lovelies!

It's me again, with a St. Patrick's Day design! I call it Paddy's Tips O'Gold:

Here in Holland, we don't celebrate, but when Samantha suggested it, I was immediately enthused, since it means GREEN! I wanted to try something different (than my usual designs), so I first sponged on some gold (Essence "My Fortune Cookie") and then I drew on the grass with Catrice "Hugo Moss" and some with NYC "High Line Green". Then I drew on the clovers with Essence "We Rock The Green" and a slightly too broad dotting tool. I should've used a toothpick.

The gold alone was pretty too:

So how many of you will celebrate St. Paddy's Day?

Now head over to my blog to see Samantha's design! I have not seen it yet, so I'm really excited as to what it will be :D

Isn't Lothwen's design great! Maybe I recreate for my actual St. Paddy's Day mani! :)
