Lacquered Lover "The Carly" Manicure Swatch Spam! Pic Heavy!

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers!  Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  I've finally kicked this cold but I'm a bit behind on my swatching so I figured since you all liked my last Swatch Spam, I'd do another one with the infamous "Carly Manicure!"

Now if you follow me on Instagram (@lacqueredlover) then odds are, you've seen many of these.  I'm a big fan of doing a "swap" manicure of sorts or just show off my nail art by doing my signature "Carly Manicure" pose by lining up the bottles!  I haven't had any in a bit since my left hand had some breakage but today, I brought it back!  I love my recognizable nail pics so for your viewing pleasure, here are a TON of my favorites!  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!

Whew!  That was a LOT of "Carly" manicures!  I'm so happy to be able to do them again, I forgot how much I enjoy doing my pictures this way!

What do you think of my picture style?  Which was your favorite manicure?


  1. Ahh, it's like walking down memory lane! I love so many of these-- those Nfu-Oh jellies, Thakoon for NARS, the NYFW Zoyas (here's where I first knew I had to have Julie, lol), that gorgeous yellow Color Club, and your absolutely amazing Milani dotticure and adorable cherries. Awesome post, Carly ♥

  2. so cute.. I think the ladybugs are my fave!

  3. Wow! Such nice pics! I really like Nostalgic Lacquer Duckie!
