Feeling Nautical

ok, ok.

I know I used the star image last time, but I just couldn't help myself!  Having too much fun with these new (to me) plates!

I wanted to practice getting the design in the center of my nail by the cuticle and I thought the continuity of having all nails the same was a nice change of pace (from having an accent nail).

Plus, I mean, come on.  Who doesn't love the nautical look!?  AND china glaze First Mate IS a pretty awesome blue (a one coater on most nails)!

Exhibit A:

For Those About To Rock

I Salute You!  

haha...  any AC/DC lovers out there?  How 'bout lovers of the movie School of Rock!? I love that movie so much!

Anyhoo, I just got my new set of Bundle monster plates (25 piece set) in the mail a couple days ago.  Which I was totally stoked about b/c amazon predicted they wouldn't get here for another 5 days or so.  

Early nail mail ROCKS!  hahah!

So, I had to try them out.  Among my favorite and most anticipated images are the skull and the nautical star.  Thus, this mani was born!

I tried them out on the "practice mani" below:

Franken - Skool of Hard Rox

Here's a polish I made the other day.  I was really wanting the new Essie "School of Hard Rocks," but I just don't feel right paying such high prices for a cream polish I can make at home for MUCH less money.

So I made it myself! =)

At lease I think I did!  lol.  I compared it to the Essie at the store and I'm sure they're VERY close! ;)

Lacquerish Original franken- Skool of Hard Rox!

Skool of Hard Rox - hmm.. dusty goodness!

different lighting this time just 'cause I can!
Anyway, when I first made it it was too green.  And not dusty enough!  But I think this time it's right on!

A dusty green-is blue-ish teal color that's neither too dark or too light.  It's so gorgeous! And very pigmented as well!  This is 2 coats with SV on top.  Sigh.  I think I'm in love!

For this franken I used a dusty green base (the ULTA version of OPI JITNB) and added a bright blue polish from dollar tree, some white, and some black.  Rinse and repeat until it looks right!  Plus I always have to add a bunch of thinner cause doing that much bottle opening and shaking makes things rather goopy.

Waddya think!?  XD


Ok guys. I get SO MANY EMAILS AND COMMENTS asking me where to get Lynnderella polishes. And I totally understand why! But it's gotten so overwhelming to answer you all individually. I don't have time! lol

Lynn has her own blog (and blogsales) here.

And Llarowe sells her stuff here.

So go forth and buy tons of it! And make sure to tell 'em I sent ya!
Thanks for understanding! Lacquerish =0)
