Good morning my fellow lacquered lovers! Happy Wednesday to you all! I'm in a fantastic mood today because thanks to all of you, my Lacquered Lover Facebook page his over 5,000 likes yesterday! Thank you to everyone for all of your continued support! So, to celebrate, I thought it would be fun to go back and post up some of my nail art over the last few months while I was on hiatus from the blog but still posting on social media in case you missed it!
There are dotticures, penguins, gold leaf, gradients, and more! Now, without further ado, on to the polish!
I did this manicure twice, in two different ways, over the course of 2 weeks last summer! The first one I did for Pride in NYC and did it as I usually do a gradient. Then for the Color Run, I decided to try a sideways gradient and absolutely fell in love with it! Just adore these bright shades!
Yes, I put actual feathers on my nails. I actually loved this manicure, it was a lot easier than I expected! You paint your nails, put on a clear coat, gently place the feather on the nail, top coat again, and then just file off the excess! Pretty neat idea!

I was lucky enough during NYFW last September to be invited up to the CND Design Lab to have one of their master manicurists do a nail art look on me! On my thumbs, she used shellac to recreate the Red Rum look from the Blondes AW2013 show and the rest was the silver foil manicure from the Michael Van Der Ham London shows! Such a fun look!

So there you have it! A LOT of nail art! This is making me want to do an epic manicure coming up this weekend!
