The Lacquer Legion - Crisp - Toffee Crisp

Hi everyone! Today it's time for another Lacquer Legion prompt mani! 

This month's theme is 'Crisp' (#LLCrisp). This month's theme is very open to interpretation, from autumn/fall ideas to crisp lines! 


Being a Brit, my first thought was crisps, as in potato chips...Walker's, Lays, Pringles etc... 

But then this idea popped into my head. Toffee Crisps are one of my favourite chocolate bars ever! They're filled with puffed rice and toffee! YUM! I thought it would be really fun to recreate the wrapper!

I hunted through my stash to find the perfect orange to use as my base and went back to my faithful Kiko 280, a great basic orange creme. I started my mani off with 2 coats. I then used my favourite chocolate brown creme from 6 Harts called Bad Bad Lulu Brown and some acrylic paint to freehand the Toffee Crisp text. I finished everything off with a coat of topcoat.

I really like how this manicure turned out and it was really fun to do! I only wish I'd actually had a Toffee Crisp to use in my photos. But obviously I ate the few I bought a while back...I'm looking forward to seeing all the other interpretations of this month's theme as I'm sure they're going to be really varied!
