The Lacquer Legion - Glam - Black & Gold Skittle!

Hi everyone! Today I'm really happy to be participating in The Lacquer Legion challenge organised by Chalkboard Nails, Rebecca Likes Nails, The Nailasaurus and Work/Play/Polish.

Each month, there is a different prompt for inspiration and a corresponding hashtag for sharing on the 28th! This month, the theme is Glam (#LLGlam). 

When I think of 'Glam', I think of retro fashion and colours such as black, gold and red. 

I decided to go for gold and black and do a skittlette full of sparkle and glitzy details.

So here is how I created this look! 

On my index: one coat of A England Camelot (the ultimate black creme!) stamped with Barry M Gold Foil Effect polish and the Emily De Molly EDM01 plate and topcoat.

On my middle finger: two coats of OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby, dots of A England Camelot with a dotting tool, a golden stud from BornPretty on each dot and topcoat.

On my ring finger: two coats of OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby (Gwen Stefani Collection) without topcoat to leave the satin finish.

On my little finger: three coats of OPI Wonderous Star, a fine gold microglitter with larger black glitters, and topcoat

On my thumb: one coat of A England Camelot, some more of the BornPretty studs and topcoat.
