After a long day of trudging through snow, work and a post-holiday grocery shopping trip, I didn't have much motivation to do some intricate designs or stamping on my nails. Luckily, my Lacquistry was waiting for me to open it at lunch!
I first saw polishes created by Jenna at Lacquistry at Amy's blog, and in particular, this post. Still striking out in getting any Lynderlla polishes, I fell in love with Jenna's Shredded collection. I snagged the black, gold, and aqua versions of the shredded polishes and holy spicoli am I pleased with them! Not only for their reasonable price ($7.50 a bottle), but also for their...well let's just let the pictures speak for themselves.
I needed the black because it's dying to get some serious contrast (which you'll see in a moment). I also grabbed the gold, mostly because I was upset when I applied Essie's As Gold as it Gets only to find out that the gold flakes didn't actually remain gold once they were layered. And of course, the aqua was too unique to pass up. I also picked up a polish she aptly named Potting Soil. You'll see that in the future though.
So, a quick mani later, I got these neon results. I reiterate...holy spicoli!
Slapping the black Shredded on top of China Glaze's Pool Party is probably too much to handle for some, and definitely a driving hazard if nothing else, but it's so beyond effortless-awesome that I think even those of you who don't favor pinks and neons will give it its due credit.
