The Lacquer Ring – Inspired By Frosso

I had totally forgotten about today’s The Lacquer Ring post. I am such a spaz that I didn’t even realize that we are almost at the end of the month, so when Amy mentioned it last night, I had to scramble. At first I was going to pass on the post, but today we are posting manis inspired by Frosso. In case you don’t know her (duh!), she is the hands behind the now retired Lacquer Me Silly. Now, I am still refusing to acknowledge that she officially retired from blogging because she is one of the first bloggers I became friends with. It’s like the end of an era! She will still be around on IG so it’s not like she stopped liking nail polish, blogging just wasn’t a priority in her life anymore and I totally get that. There are days when I want to shut it all down because I think there are a million blogs out there that are better or have more followers or blah blah blah. But you know what? I am unique…uniquely crazy. There is no one out there like me so I will continue to hoard my polishes and hopefully entertain anyone who stops by. Since Frosso is the queen of gunmetal, I took out Zoya Marina. Is this considered gunmetal? Maybe. Kinda. It didn’t matter because I wanted to use it since it’s my mom’s namesake polish and I was thinking of calling her today to bug her for a recipe. Anyway, let me show you what I did for my mani.

Zoya Marina 1Zoya Marina 2This is three coats of Zoya Marina. It was a little thinner than I am used to with Zoya polishes, so I ended up applying three coats to cover up bald spots. This is almost frosty, but I think they color saves it for me. I was going to stop there because I was just going to keep it simple and classy, but I had to bling it up.

OPI Muppets World Tour 1OPI Muppets World Tour 2As an accent, I used OPI Muppets World Tour. I lurve this. Seriously. LOVE. I think it’s such a pretty glitter and it goes great with this color.

So what do you think about today’s mani? I know it’s simple, but I just really like it. Don’t forget to check the other manis linked below. Thanks for the visit, and I will talk to you soon!

  1. You are the first nail art blogger that I found and started to read religiously, and you completely inspired my journey into doing nail art and collecting nail polishes – which quickly reached obsessive, hoarding levels! So thank you and I love reading your posts!

  2. Wow. This is sooo pretty! I absolutely love the base polish! I have to say that I’ve never loved glitter toppers,but that accent nail is fabby! Btw, I LOVE your blog – I’m always so excited to see your swatches and read your fun craziness πŸ™‚

  3. Perfect pairing here and a beautiful tribute. I am sure she is pleased to know she helped to inspire you. I love how the blogger community is so supportive of one another. I am thinking that only another blogger would really “get it”.

  4. First I must say you nailed it πŸ™‚ did I just make a pun? I really love this color so now of course I must buy it…even in my retirement you still manage to enable me. You’re the reason why I have bright ass neon pink makeup forever lipstick from the first swatches I’ve seen of yours back in the day. I remember there was a time when it wasn’t just about the nail polish… It’s so weird to even think about that!
