The Lacquer Legion: Lucky

March's theme for The Lacquer Legion is Lucky!

I thought about lucky things, like lucky charms, and I was this close to trying to base nails on a pair of lucky underwear I used to wear to my best friend's hockey games in high school... But A) I thought that might be weird (however apparently I wasn't above telling you about it) and B) I can't really remember them.

So I kept thinking, and realized that the luckiest thing in my life is my dad!
He is seriously lucky. He always wins on scratch tickets, poker games, even the lottery! (He hasn't hit the big one yet... But I sure hope its coming.)

I decided I would get him to choose three random numbers corresponding to my polish stash list. So he picked from 1-1279. The three colors he chose turned out to really go well together!

#396: Color Club - Warhol
#519: Essence - Nude It!
#777: Nail-Venturous - Evil Barbie

I wasn't in the mood for anything too intense, so I did a base with the nude polish, added two pink nails plus a pink stripe on the thumb, and put the glitter on top. Voila! Easy but eye catching manicure with a fun idea behind it.

Not gonna lie, I was a little worried he would end up choosing orange, purple and brown or something. But he truly is lucky I guess! I hope I've inherited some of that lucky touch. Especially for my microeconomics final next month... That sucker is gonna need a lot of luck.

I hope you guys liked this mani! And don't forget to share yours on our Facebook page, or anywhere on social media with the tag #LLlucky.


  1. Good luck on your microeconomics. :D Hihi. I agree, the colors really complement each other. There is something about the design on your thumb. It looks simple and at the same time, elegant. :D It's so difficult to explain. Hahaha.

  2. It looks great! The two colors go well together too :)

  3. Beautiful. I love the way the beige and pink look together. And then the glitter makes it pop.

  4. Ha! What a cool idea, and I like what you did with the three shades. Good luck on your final! xoxo

  5. I love bright colors with nude! Love the glitter too! and great idea behind this mani! I wish I thought to randomly pick my colors... I was so stuck for inspiration for this mani! I guess it would be harder for me though because I don't have all my polishes numbered like you do

  6. Aww, sweet! :) Love how your dad just went with it (mine would probably be like "you want me to do what?"); and yes, what a lucky pick that the colours go so well together. :)
    And good luck with your exam.

  7. omg i love this idea for this! really sweet and he must be lucky because those polishes are perfect together!

  8. i love how you choose your mani. It's beautiful!
