Today I have a special post! Did you know that I'm very good friends with the lovely Vicky A of Boombastic Nails? In fact I named her blog back in the days when she was just thinking about blogging. I may have goaded her into it because she had some of the best swatches and pictures I've ever seen how could she NOT blog!!! Lol I sound insane but she's talented and she also happens to be my nail polish/nail art bestie for today's post.
As you know I love my Instagram and there are always tons of tags running around over there one of which is the theme - bestie twin nails. In short you and your nail art buddy pic an idea and colors and without showing the other create some nail art. Vicky chose the theme - using tape in nail art and then I semi chose the colors - rainbow (but then we decided on full color spectrum). So where does the "blasian" part come from? Lol - I'm African American/Black and Vicki is Chinese. So there we are anyway without futher ado some bestie nail art...

Now I know you are thinking where did YOU use tape in your mani?? Well I did. I put down one water marble (the black and white) and then taped off sections of it and water marbled on top of the taped off sections creating a double water marble! Crazy cool right. I used over 30 polishes to create this manicure, and at least 4-5 different colors and 3-4 brands for each "color" of the the spectrum.! My my how overly ambitious! Anyway I hope you enjoyed this happy un-Easter edition of Lacquer Lockdown. May candy bunnies rain from your skies and happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it!
