I Heart Friday

Hello Lovely People!

Guess what, it’s Friday! I couldn’t be happier for the weekend and a long deserved rest (who am I kidding, it’s St Paddy’s Day).

I decided to do something simple and cute, it’s about time. I’ve had the same polish on for close to two weeks (with a bit of a touch-up here and there). I used a Modi nude that I have from Korea and Sinful Colors white (loving the Sinful Colors btw).

I hope you all like my simple mani. Wishing everyone a happy Friday and a fun-filled weekend.

French Floral Decals

Happy Tuesday everyone! Every day brings us closer to the Festive Season, the end of the year and yet another year to come. Can you believe it??

I’ve been very busy with work lately. I also can’t wear outrageous nails to work (I wish I could!). So I did a very simple French style mani, with a little floral decal or two (leftover from Korea)Β to spice it up!

I used a Modi white and a Face Shop glitter topcoat (all from my time in Korea).. I know what you are thinking, and yes, I do need to go shopping in South Africa and top up my polish collection πŸ™‚

Halloween Challenge: #4 Gothic

I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend! I’ve had a very relaxing and restful one.

Here is my design for the “Gothic” theme. I’m not sure if it’s really Gothic, but I tried! I used a Modi deep red that I had from Korea (number 68 – my Korean is quite rusty, but I think it’s called “Riding Hood”). I left some of the nail natural. I also went a bit gem-crazy. It’s nice to go over the top once in a while πŸ™‚

Polka dot and lace

I know this is off-topic (I am supposed to be posting a Halloween mani today), but I didn’t get a chance to do my Halloween mani last night. I’ll try do it asap πŸ™‚

In the meantime, here is a fun little mani I did this week. I wore it to work, so it couldn’t be too outrageous. I used Tip Top Solar Flare for the base and Tip Top Cream Puff for the polka dots. I also added some lace stickers that I had lying around from Korea.

I really like it.. Hope you do too! πŸ™‚

Hallowe’en Challenge: #2 Pumpkins

I had a bit of a hard time with this topic. My nails are SO short at the moment, it’s very difficult to paint such detailed images on such a tiny surface. But I tried my best and I hope you like it.

We had a Wellness Day at my work on Friday and I got a free mini-manicure. So the base coat for this is an Essie polish. I then sponged on a bit of orange (to make it more pumpkin-like). I then hand painted 2 jack-o-lanterns and an attempt at a gravestone (you can’t really see the R.I.P… oopsie).

I’m not sure if anyone noticed on my new header and the logo on this post, I’ve designed a new Lekker Lacquer Logo. I’m really loving it! I’ve done it in about 10 different colours so I can just stick it on to my pics πŸ™‚

Aqua-glitter nails

Let’s start this post off with some nail pictures, seeing as it’s been a while…

I know that this is a very simple manicure, but I needed something that I could wear to work. This may be pushing it because it looks a bit disco, but I couldn’t resist. It’s nice working and then the glitter catches your eye and you can stare at it for a few seconds and think: “So pretty… so shiny…” before you have to snap back to reality. So, lets just say, it brightens up my day.

I also have some good news. My boyfriend and I have found an apartment! So we will be moving in in about 2 weeks! πŸ™‚ I’m so excited to get my life sorted out, to have a place to call home.. and of course, to have a place to stash all my polishes. Hopefully then I’ll have more time and be settled enough to start blogging more consistently.
