Sexy in the City

12 Sep

Happy Tuesday to you, Lacquer lovers and addicts alike! I was feeling blue this weekend. I sported this mani on Monday, just late on posting it. It was so pretty! I even started singing that Blue song to my husband afterwards! 🙂 He laughed at my corny joke and that’s why I love him… well, one of the many reasons. Anywho, back to this blue! I am not big on the name! I though I’d make that clear. lol. It’s always hard for me to talk polish when the bute’s got a silly name. Thankfully no one asked me what color it was!

This is China Glaze’s “Sexy in the City”. It’s a very nice warm blue. Blue’s are naturally cool but this has a warm feeling to it. I hope that makes sense. If not, you’ll see it. I did two coats on all my fingers. I then took Finger Paint’s “Laugh my Art Off”, a nice a super glittery blue polish, and layered that on my ring and pointer fingers. I then topped it all off with SV. I only have one picture. Blues always stain my skin. Meh. Here is the Sexy in the City-Laugh my Art Off mani! Thanks for stopping by to get your fix of Lacquer Addictions! 😉 God Bless you!

Chevron-Rose

4 Sep

Happy Tuesday to you, Lacquer Lovers! 🙂 It’s been a great weekend here, for me and the hubby. Labor Day was a nice laid back kind of day and we are thankful for the day off. Today’s mani is inspired by one I’ve often seen on Pinterest. You can click here to view the photo I was inspired by. I just didn’t have the right glitter (can you believe it?!) to add that accent. I plan on getting one soon.

I started with base coat and then with China Glaze’s “Rose Among the Thorns (Neon)”, I did a few coats on each nail. This color takes about 3 coats to be opaque. It’s still a bit translucent on a few of them. So it takes some patience. 🙂 I coated my ring fingers with Ulta’s “Snow White” and topped them all with SV. I then used Sinful Colors’ “Black on Black” and plate BM-201 and stamped my ring fingers. I really liked the outcome. Very retro.

Sorry about the long-in-between posts periods. I may have to officially do a “once  a  week” type thing. We’ll see. But, thank you for stopping by. I hope you try this lovely chevron mani and I hope you have the glitter! 😉 God Bless and have a great week! ❤ Sara

Naked

10 Aug

Happy Friday to you! This has been one crazy week. It’s been busy but I’d rather it be busy and fly than slow and drag.  So… I missed Pink Wednesday this week. Grr. I’ve really been itching to do a pink mani lately. I really loved the Denim to Earth this week but I just didn’t have time to do anything. Only reason I am now is because I napped this afternoon, into the evening since my husband didn’t wake me up. I felt good but then I was like, “NO!”. And then I was like, “Yay! I can paint!”. So, here I am. 🙂

Digging the name of this polish? Lol! This is China Glaze’s “Naked”. Boy, do i LOVE this color! I was going to go for a super popping pink. But I saw this one, and realized it’s too pretty not to have used it yet, and opted for this lovely soft, feminine color. I did two coats and topped off with SV. The application was smooth and easy. It’s shimmery with fine glitter. I then used my Red Angel plate RA-109. As I said, I feel this a very girly color so I opted for a single floral image-Sinful Color’s Snow Me White- on my ring fingers and added some “bling” to the middles. Love it! And, I feel it’s work appropriate. So if you’re looking for “work” manis, give this bottle a go. I hope you like it and you feel pretty in your pink! All these photos are without flash. Thanks for stopping by. God Bless!

 

 

Denim to Earth

9 Aug

welcome back to Lacquer Addictions! 🙂 It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to post! Things finally feel like they’re starting to wind down. We still have a lot going on, the Lord’s work never stops, but it’s nice to take a breather every few days.

Today’s post is a new color. I got my hands on a pretty, duo-toned Nicole polish. In the bottle, it’s a deep blue with gray tones but purple shimmers. One way you see the blues and the other you see the purples. I love it! I did two coats on all of my nails. Again, in some lighting, you see the blue, sometimes it looks black, and others you can faintly see the purples. It was very hard to photograph. I then did one coat of one of Essie’s “luxe effects” polishes- Shine of the Times. I didn’t like the whole thing in flakes so I opted for an accent of the flakes. I went over that and left a small side of the flakes peaking through. I really liked the outcome. I then accented my thumbs with the same flake polish. It feels good to paint and post. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by! I definitely missed this. God Bless!

 

 

Orange Punch

24 Jul

Happy Tuesday, world. Another busy week has flown by. I did actually paint but I didn’t have time for posts. Tonight, I’m making time and staying up just a few extra minutes. I’m having withdrawls (sp). I got this idea from another blogger-polish lover: WorkPlayPolish. You can see her version (i love her color combo!) here.

Today’s post is simple but I love it. I find it girly and summery and I keep looking at them. I did 2 coats of Orly’s “Orange Punch” which really does look like it’d be a bottle of punch. I then painted my rings fingers with Ulta’s “Snow White” and topped them all of with SV. I took the largest (if not, one of the largest) dotting tool I have and dotted Orange Punch on the white ring fingers and then dotted the Snow White on my orange pointer fingers. Again, topped with SV. Let me know what you think! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!
