The Lacquer Legion: Garden

Hey guys! I'm home from sunny Florida! Did you miss me? Just kidding, I know you did.
I have been crazy busy ever since my plane touched down though, because my university convocation was this week! I am an official graduate. However my univeristy career is far from over... It's back to the grind right away to hopefully get accepted into a masters program. I think I'd stay in school forever if I could, just to delay full adulthood.

I scrambled just now to put a post together for this month's Lacquer Legion prompt, because I don't wanna miss a month!
The theme is Garden, so we could all take inspiration from our lovely spring blossoms for this month's post... Except Newfoundland did not get that memo and we have no spring and certainly no gardens. The temperature is practically below freezing. I came home from Florida for this?!

Anyway, I decided to do a really simple floral manicure with ye old flower technique that I used to do when I was like 10! Mostly because it would allow me to do a manicure in less than 10 minutes because that was all the time I had if I wanna get this post up before midnight! (Plus I had to do it during the intermission of the hockey game. Come on Hawks!!)

See what I meant by simple? Ha! Despite how easy this look is to complete, I think the pink flowers look really cute on the off-white and the green adds a springy pop.

The bone-colored background is OPI - My Vampire is Buff.
The green? Essie - The More The Merrier.
The pink is a go-to fave, China Glaze - Dance Baby.
And the yellow, Essence - Sun Dancer.

I hope you guys liked this easy yet cute mani! And don't forget to share yours if you haven't already on our Facebook page, or anywhere on social media with the tag #LLgarden.


  1. These are cute! Love doing flowers like that too.

  2. simple can be wonderful and I really like your manicure so I think you nailed it :)

  3. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
