Swap with Ivana at Ivana Thinks Pink!

22 Aug

Hello everyone! Today I have a special post- my swap with Ivana Thinks Pink! I have followed and loved Ivana for forever it seems, and when I started Lacquer Land she was one of the first bloggers I reached out to for blogging advice. She has always been nothing but super nice to me, and she makes some amazing manicures 🙂 She sent me a TON of goodies, it was honestly like Christmas at our house!



Amazing right?! She also included a couple things of makeup. Thank you so much Ivana!!!

And in honor of my Ivana Thinks Pink swap, I used the Essence Nail Color 3 and did a frenchy 🙂 The base color is Shopping Trip in Soho, and the color on the tips is Party All Night Long. This was the first time I had tried this (using scotch tape), so don’t judge. I actually really like it, and want to start to perfect the skill 😉 Shopping Trip in Soho also went on like butter. Totes going to use that one over and over 🙂





What do you think?!


Thanks for reading!

Bedazzled Off The Shoulder

2 Jul

Morning everyone! Hope yall’s weekend was good! Mine was 🙂 Today I have another color from the Essie 2012 Summer Collection. It is freakin cute. It is the perfect combo of being a bright pink, but not so neon. I actually like this color A LOT more than was I was expecting. Yay!

3 coats (could probably be 2, I was getting a little craycray with the amount of polish on my brush lol)


Cute right?! It’s like pink lemonade on my nails 😉 I wanted to try something different, and I’ve been loving all the accent nails so I decided to do one too but bedazzle it 🙂 Now, these have caused some debate between me, my friends & family, and my Instagram ladies. Half like them, half don’t. What do you think?!

Run The World (Girls)

8 May

Mornin everyone! 2 posts in 2 days?! I know, so unusual of me but I had done my Fiesta nails on Saturday and WordPress would only let me post them till yesterday. So I celebrated being done with finals by painting my nails 🙂 Today I have Deborah Lippmann’s Run The World (Girls) neon set. I was really excited about this collection because I loooove neons, but I was kinda disappointed. They are more like jelly neons…and I’m not a huge fan of jellies. : / I DO like that every nail gets a different color, I think that’s cute 🙂

The 5 colors that come in the set are:

I Kissed A Girl

It Girl

Hollaback Girl

Nasty Girl

Party Girl

I think my personal favorite is Party Girl, a salmon color. I think it would be really pretty for a jelly sandwich 🙂

These first pics are the matte finish, without top coat.



The next pics are with top coat.



What do you think? Isn’t a different color on each nail cute?!
