The Lacquer Legion: Fandom

Hi everyone!  I was so excited about this month's Lacquer Legion theme, because I fanned out so hard this month!  One of my best friends and I just recently road tripped it from Atlanta to DC to see one of our favorite bands perform for their reunion tour.  
If you don't know who Veruca Salt is, then you're probably in your twenties. (Showing my age here.) 

 For the show, I decided to model my mani after my favorite album of their's: 

Eight Arms to Hold You

I started off with two coats of Zoya Mira, followed by one coat of SV.

I paired Barry M Gold Foil with Salon Effects SE20 for the sunburst pattern, and with Messy Mansion MM43 for the octopus.  I could not believe how closely matching the stamp image was to the album artwork!  I also used my Shany red striping polish for the eyes on the octopus.

For some glitz, I used a wedge sponge with Nicole by OPI Get Carrie'd Away to create a glitter gradient on the tips.  I finished with one coat of SV.

I really wish I'd had a bit more time for this one, but I still really like it.
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
