Bronze & Gold Lace Nail Art

Happy New Year! It’s crazy to think that it’s been eight years since I started All Lacquered Up. Eight years! It was a time when 3-Free was barely a thing. When I discovered a basically unknown brand at a Seattle airport kiosk called butter LONDON.

When I was the only nail blogger. When all of my nail polish fit in one cabinet as compared to needing its own room. So many amazing things have happened since then, so many changes. But one thing remains the same, my love of nail polish and desire to share it with you.

The traditional 8th anniversary gift is bronze and the modern gift is lace so I decided to combine the two in a bronze & gold lace nail art look. Take a trip down memory lane with me and enjoy my tribute manicure.

Season of Giving Giveaways – Day 8

TGIF friends! Anything fun planned for the weekend? We have an annual holiday party and gift exchange on Saturday and I’m hoping to test our a new cookie recipe. I’ve been baking quite a bit lately and the boyfriend’s co-workers have been reaping the rewards, instead of my thighs.

It’s the last day for the Season of Giving Giveaways and it’s a big one! My friends at Zoya allowed me to curate a gift set containing TWELVE Zoya nail polish shades. And they’re throwing in a Zoya Color Lock System and gift box. The best part, THREE of you will win!

It was hard for me to narrow down my fave Zoya shades to just twelve but it’s a good mix of new and old favorites. In the box: Zoya Sooki, India, Julieanne, Charla, Ivanka, Crystal, Trixie, Yuna, Raven, Remy, Song, Jo.

All giveaways will be open for 48 hours. This giveaway is for US residents only.

Top 10 Nail Polish Brushes

As important as it is for a nail polish to have a great formula (smooth, pigmented, streak-free), it means nothing if the brush you use to apply it isn’t up to par. The two definitely go hand in hand, which is why, when the Top 10 Tuesday crew decided to focus on brushes, I opted to hone in on my favorite nail polish brushes.

The Best Base Coats for Every Nail Need

Best Base Coats for Nails

Affiliate Link|I Bought This|Press Sample

When I put together my list of current Favorite Top Coats, many of you requested to hear about the Best Base Coats in my arsenal. I actually have more top coats than base coats and that’s because I tend to stick with my tried and true faves. I test new things, of course, but, for the most part, these have become my staples.

To make sure I have all your bases covered (pun totally intended), I am sharing my favorites for long-lasting wear, ridge filling, treatment and specialty polishes.
