Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! I thought I would challenge myself today and see if I could write a post in an hour.

As promised, here is the swatch of Incoco’s St. Patrick’s themed nail polish appliqué in Pot Of Gold. It is a mound of fine and chunky gold glitter with a few green specks sprinkled throughout. The green glitter also picks up shades of teal, light blue, pink, and silver, lavender, depending on how the light catches it. These were not as easy to apply as … Read More Countdown to St. Patrick’s Day With Incoco Nail Polish Appliqué: Part 2 – Pot Of Gold
Walgreens is a dangerous place, especially if you are a product junkie. I stumbled across the Incoco St. Patrick’s Nail Polish Appliqués and I figured I would go ahead and try them since my Amazon wish list is full of it.

That’s the plan. … Read More Countdown to St. Patrick’s Day With Incoco Nail Polish Appliqué: Part 1 – Happy Go Lucky

So this months lacquer legion theme was luck, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day I’m sure, but it could be anything that symbolizes ‘luck traditional and otherwise. Lucky for me I had the sense to start early and create two manicures because the second one was I did the night before the challenge was a disaster. I’m a little seriously bummed because I haven’t … Read More March Lacquer Legion Submission
February’s Lacquer Legion submission was created from a manicure I found on Essie, and I decided to recreate it but with Essie’s Ignite the Night instead of Chinchilly. The problem is that as lovely as this Sssssexy is, I have never been able to create passable magnetic nail art with it. Because it was only barely visible on one nail, I decided to add … Read More February Lacquer Legion Submission Featuring Essie
