H is for Haus of Lacquer Inspired

Hello my polished peeps!  Hope you are having a super week!!  It's a short one for me - flex day on Friday - woot woot!!

For today's prompt, H, I'm doing a mani inspired by Haus of Lacquer - I posted about this crazy talented chica yesterday - actually this whole week will be inspired by her and her amazingly amazing vintage roses.  I got the idea for an instagram inspired week from Heather over at Peace, Love and Polish - there is sooo much talent out there, it's crazy - Heather has done an amazing job of some of my favorites, I hope you have some time to check it out!!  Steph from Haus of Lacquer is definitely one of my faves and I love that she's from the same province as me - maybe one day I'll take the ferry over for a Haus of Lacquer mani - oh to dream the dream, hey?  Anyhoodle, hope you enjoy!

  4. This looks beautiful!! Nude and black is always so chic but edgy. I love 'Inspired by' posts for introducing me to new blogs/nail artists.

  12. Nicole...you have got to do the ferry thing. Like minds. Soul sisters. Craft. Fun. Fumes. Pictures. And of course a dual blog post. I insist on being entertained. (Ignore me if I've gone beyond weird. I swear to Gawd, it's the fumes.)

    Anyhoozits...
