The Lacquer Ring: Unicorns Unite!

Hello All! Today I am very excited to announce that I have joined up with a group of some of my best bloggy friends to create a new joint venture called The Lacquer Ring. Each month one of us will pick two prompts (one color based and one design based) and we'll all post those looks together. For our inaugural post, we've all decided to post manicures using a mutual polish, Candy Lacquer's Unicorn Bubbles. This polish was a gift from the sweet Nicole of Polish Me, Please!

Here is my look featuring Candy Lacquer's Unicorn Bubbles. I used a base of China Glaze Tart-y for the Party on my Thumb & Pinky, China Glaze Kinetic Candy on my Pointer & Middle, and underneath the hand placed glitter on my ring finger is China Glaze Glistening Snow. Unicorn Bubbles is made up of 3 different sized circle glitters in varied colors/finishes in a clear base that is sprinkled with teal microglitter.






What do you think? Are you excited for the new group posts? Be sure to check out the other ladies of The Lacquer Ring below.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

*all polishes featured in this post were purchased by me or a gift

  1. Looooove it!!!! The glitter placement looks like beautiful mermaid scales if mermaids were pastel. I've gotta do some glitter placement... Mine probably won't look half as good as this though. Lovely. Just lovely.

    1. Thanks! I'm so happy with the glitter placement, it took forever, but was worth it. I thought your mani was AWESOME!

  2. This is a lovely glitter! I can't believe that with all of the Candy Lacquers in my collection I still haven't picked this one up yet. I really need to fix that sooner rather than later. It's a beauty.

  3. How freaking long did it take you to do that precise glitter placement on your ring finger? It looks gorgeous! I love how this came out and can't want to see what else you come up with.

    1. Way to long, but it was worth it. I think it took me like 45 mins for 1 hand. I wasn't as precise on my dominate hand, so it took a little less time.

  4. I know I'm late getting to commenting on everyone's post, but better late then never :P This came out super cute, you and Jess were thinking alike here! Now I'm wondering how much of a pain it was to remove the glitter on your ring finger.

    1. Thanks! Jess and I were totally on the same wavelength.

      It was terrible removing it! I did the foil method for 10 mins and nothing, I had to reapply and leave it on for close to another 15 before anything budged.
