The Lacquer Legion: Reinvention - Unconventional Shades of Valentine's Day

Nothing to Disclose
*These products are Cruelty Free 

I'm excited to be participating in the first Lacquer Legion challenge, put together by Chalkboard Nails Rebecca Likes NailsThe Nailasaurus, and Work/Play/PolishThis month, the theme is reinvention. If you want to participate, you can like The Lacquer Legion on Facebook and hashtag your posts on all social media with #LLreinvention. Each month there will be a different theme and hashtag.

I was pretty excited to be participating in this and had several ideas in my head when I first heard about this. And then I got busy and, in true Sheila fashion, forgot about it completely. So I didn't have time to do any of the ideas I was excited about initially. Once again, flying by the seat of my pants, I came up with this quick and easy mani that sort of reinvents the common, classic heart for Valentine's Day using unconventional colors. Yeah, I'm not much of a pink-lover.

Unconventional Shades of Valentine's Day

I used a base of Oopsie Daisies Secret Admirer, which I was already wearing, and free-handed blue hearts and stripes using a-England Tristam with a few plain white accents.

I'll tell you what, I bet for the next challenge, I prepare and set a reminder on my phone! I can't wait to see what the next theme will be because I plan on killin' it!


Be sure and type in #LLreinvention to check out all the other manis!
