Guest Post From MixedMama

Pin It
Hey Lovelies! It's MixedMama from I am so excited to be a guest post today for Lace & Lacquers! Today I will be showing you theses super adorable Nautical Nails that I created. For this look I used 1 coat of Essie's Bobbing For Baubles on my ring and thumb nails and then the rest of my nails with Wet n' Wild's I Red a Good Book. I stamped MASH plate 46 for the stripes and free handed the anchors using Sally Hansen Extreme White On. To finish off the look I applied 2 coats of Jordana's Crystal Glitter and sealed it all in with Seche Vite.

This look is not only great for Summer but also 4th of July, Memorial Day or even Labor Day. Now for the fun part! Want to know how to create the anchor? Check out my step-by-step tutorial below!

Random Monday Night Swatches & Nail Art

Pin It Man! I wasn't expecting to be this busy today! My mom and I went to pick blueberries for a few hours this afternoon at a local blueberry farm. 8lbs of berries total! All for $15!

Anywho! Here are some random swatches I have since I didn't get a chance to finish up the post I wanted to do today. Oh but first: Happy Memorial Day to those who served, those serving and ESPECIALLY the fallen.

Nicole OPI Green Up Your Act

I had this one on my wishlist for a few months, in Feb. I actually found it on clearance at Target! LOVE when that happens! I LOVE this color, Green Up Your Act is a deep grey green. Reminds me of some of the colors in the Air Force/Army digital camo print. This was 3 coats, I was hoping for 2 but I had a little bit of balding/thin polish issues. Still love it though!

I haven't seen this shade in stores after it went on clearance, at least not none of the Target stores I've been to. However, it is still available on Target's website! [Don't forget to use your Ebates! 3% back, sign up link on the right!]... cheaper than eBay for almost $20! Jesus!

 Zoya Marley

YAYYYY! I finally have Zoya Marley! After getting it confussed with their jelly version of this shade, Miley, I'm super happy to have this! Marley is a super soft purple with a pearl like shine. Very light, delicate and girly. This was 2 coats with no issues, of course!

You can find Zoya Marley, here for $8/bottle.

French Manicure Nail Art

This is what happens when you get bored haha. You try to play nail lady on your nails when you suck at french design manicures. It was pretty cute actually, but just not for me! I used Zoya Tru, Sinful Colors Black on Black, and MAC Cosmetics Immortal Gold. I used a Konad plate (forget which one!) for the flower and stuck a Dollar Tree microbead in the center of the flowers!

Polka Dot Contrast Manicure

Here, I replicated some nail design I've seen floating around my Blogger RSS Feed. Some people might not like the color combo haha but I LOVE it quite honestly! I used Orly Ever Burgundy and Milani Key West and a small dotting tool! Simple as that :] I love manis that you can replicate in hundreds of color combos!

Captain America nails

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Have you seen The Avengers movie? If you didn't - you should! It's one heck of a movie! After a friend of mine saw the movie she sent me a picture of a Captain America manicure, which DUH, Steve Rodgers is husband #2 so I HAD to replicate it! I used Sinful Colors Why Not, Zoya Sooki (my favorite red!) and Sinful Colors Snow Me White and a striping brush! SO much awesome on my fingers!!!!!

I hope you guys enjoyed my super random post! As always, any questions - just ask!

Until tomorrow,

Time On My Nails Guest Post

Pin It Hello Lacey's Readers! I'm Julie, visiting from Time On My Nails. I'm very excited for this opportunity to do my first guest blog - thanks Lacey! I'm thrilled to be able to share some nail art with all of you today.

As those of us who paint our nails far too often (even though there's no such thing...) know, Bad Nail Days are just as possible as Bad Hair Days. Sometimes, you sit down to do a manicure, and nothing goes right. It doesn't look as good as it did in your head, you keep bumping your nails into one another and other things, and then you finish - and the top coat shrinks, wrinkles, or gets something stuck in it. My point is, any number of things can go wrong! But I, for one, am no quitter; I am rarely patient enough to take it all off and start again. So it is essential to have some manicure-saving nail art tricks up your sleeve!
