Fancy Gloss Lacquer: Frozen Berries

Nothing to Disclose 
*This product is Cruelty Free 

Tonight I have a gorgeous polish for you. I'd purchased one bottle from this brand before and I was so impressed I ordered a few more. The brand? Fancy Gloss Lacquer. The first polish that impressed me so much I had to buy more? Feeling Vampy.

This one is called Frozen Berries and it's "the berries" for sure!

The Lacquer Legion: Yummy - Chips and Coca-Cola

Nothing to Disclose 

Good morning, it's MONDAY (she said with pseudo-excitement) and today is the day the Lacquer Legion posts their Yummy manis (actual excitement) for you!

Every month, for one day, a bunch of us get together to post a themed mani. This month, it's today and the theme is Yummy.

Of course I wasn't paying attention, as usual, and I'd already posted my apple and pumpkin pie nails and melted chocolate nails so I was at a loss about what to do. Most people think of sweets when they think yummy. But while I like sweets just fine, salt is where my heart tummy is. Well, salt and coffee. But I just did coffee nails too! So what does that leave? I don't think I can draw bacon. Plus, what people all over the world call "bacon" looks vastly different.

So I went with two staples in the diet of any American: Chips and Coke! Specifically "crisps" for the Brits.

Turns out that potato chip I did on my tongue-in-cheek "Ruffles" mani was a fluke because I had issues drawing them this time but I post the good, the bad and the ugly, so here ya go!

Eh, I've done worse LOL.

I did get compliments on it. And it's certainly ME. When I don't have a cup of coffee in my hand, I have a Coke.  Dr Pepper (blech) might be 10, 2 and 4, but Coke is 24/7.

For this mani I used Zoya Sooki and Livingston (reds), Elevation Polish Pic de sotllo (blue) and for the chips, Elevation Polish Street Side NYC and Mount Ventoux.

Want to join in? Do a "yummy-themed" mani and post it using the hashtag #LLyummy! Head over to the Lacquer Legion Facebook page and Lacquer Legion on Instagram for more details. 

Be sure and type in "#LLyummy" today, November 24th, on all social media to check out all the other Lacquer Legion manis!

What's Your Favorite Nail Polish Shade?

Nothing to Disclose 

Everyone is always asking "What's your favorite color?" Well that's impossible to answer. For Clothing? Purses? Cars? It's different for everything. I wouldn't want a violet orchid car, after all.

And for nail polish? Well, that's nearly impossible as well because it depends on my mood, what I'm wearing, the weather, etc. And thankfully because there are SO MANY shades, we don't have to choose!

I love browns. And greys. And taupes! But if I just had to pick one that is my "favorite" more often than browns or greys are my favorites? Violet berry orchid. No, I do not mean purple. And no, I do not mean pink. Technically, it's between red-violet and purple but people get the wrong image in their heads when you say that, so I call it violet berry orchid. Pretty much most shades in the violet family are my favorites. But get one bit too much pink in it and I'm out. Or too much blue? Nope. I love almost ALL colors, but not all of them are my "favorite."


photo cred:

I've gathered up a few of my favorites in this color family...ones I didn't have to go into drawers and boxes for, that is.

And just a few photos I was able to grab easily from my pinterest boards.(You can check them all out in the link.)

Well that's mine! For now anyway.

What's YOUR favorite nail polish color family?
