The Lacquer Legion: Adoration

Hi everyone!  I was so excited to see the latest theme for The Lacquer Legion!!  So I sat down and thought about what the term "Adoration" meant to me.  I immediately thought of something punky, off the wall, and a little bold.  That is fantastically me!  
I recently had the opportunity to try this amazing set of four nail stud wheels from Winstonia.  Just based on some of the studs alone, I immediately came up with something!

Winstonia

I started off with two coats of OPI Push and Shove on my index and pinky finger, two coats of Cult Nails Fetish on my middle finger, and two coats of OPI Hey Baby on my ring finger.


For a stand out pop over Push and Shove, I added one coat of KBShimmer U Rock My Heart, followed by one coat of SV.


I started the pattern on my ring finger using these awesome holo striped circle studs.  I love the way the light catches them!


I used the awesome pink square studs with black splatters for the cross on my middle finger, then I added some small black rhinestones to the pattern on my ring finger.

Winstonia

I finished with one thin coat of SV to seal my studs on my ring finger, and one coat of Cult Nail Wax That on my middle finger to maintain the wax finish.

Winstonia

I love how random and edgy this turned out to be!  I had so much fun with it!!

Winstonia

I cannot wait to see what next month's theme will be!
Be sure to check out this fantastic stud wheel set at the Winstonia storefront here, and you can also find it on Amazon here.  I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

Tuff Scent Valentine's Day 2014 Trio Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!  I have the Valentine's Day Trio from Tuff Scent for you today!

Tuff Scent Valentine's Day


Kiss

Tuff Scent Valentine's Day

Kiss is a cinnamon scented soft taupe with a silver shimmer.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I love the cinnamon scent!  It's not too sweet and has just enough spice to overpower the usual lacquer scent.  This is a really nice neutral shade!
Shown is two coats of Kiss.

Tuff Scent Valentine's Day

The Valentine's Day Trio also has a rose scented top coat.  The top coat is really cute, because it has some silk rose petals and a silk leaf inside the bottle.

Tuff Scent Valentine's Day


Love

Tuff Scent Valentine's Day

Love is a rose scented cherry red crelly.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  The rose scent was a bit too sweet for me, but I'm not much on sweet scents.  I love this shade!  It is the perfect bright red.
Shown is three coats of Love.

Tuff Scent Valentine's Day

I really like how smooth and glossy the top coat is.

Tuff Scent Valentine's Day

This was my first experience with this brand.  I love the look of the bottles, but the cap is really tiny so it's a bit difficult to hold, but not so much that it hinders your ability to use it.
You can find these and other great scented shades at the Tuff Scent storefront page here, and be sure to follow them on Facebook for all of their latest collections and updates.
Happy Painting!
