#TheLacquerRing: Chartreuse

The Lacquer Ring is back. Today is the first installment of July and Jessica from Once Upon a Polish has picks this month. Her first choice is the color Chartreuse. I'm not going to lie, I reverted to a 5 year old for a minute and laughed at "shart" for a minute when I heard the color choice.

Since I wasn't a 100% clear on what chartreuse is as a color, I turned to good ol' Google for answers. I learned that "chartreuse is a color halfway between yellow and green that was named because of its resemblance to the green color of one of the French liqueurs called green chartreuse, introduced in 1764." Who knew. I then thought of the perfect polish, which had been sitting in my untried pile for a bit. I give you Butter London Squatter, a color halfway between yellow and green. Now because I can't leave the Cirque Heritage collection alone (seriously, it's my polish obsession right now) I freehanded on some french tips in Cirque Panacea. 






Ahhhh, the color of pea soup. Squatter applied like a dream, this is 3 easy, thin coats. Freehand tips obviously aren't something I'm great at but I still think they are fun. 

Don't forget to check out what CynthiaAmandaLesleyFrossoJessicaSiobhan, and Nicole came up with as well.

    1. I guess the name Squatter fits perfectly with me laughing at "shart" from Chartreuse. haha!

      You're the expert on tips so if they pass your inspection they must be decent.
