Star Wars Nail Art - Lacquer Legion July


I'm super excited for today's post! It's my 1st time joining The Lacquer Legion and the theme is Fandom. So I bring you the Rebel Alliance Starbird from Star Wars. I thought about this for a while since there's a lot of stuff I'm a fan of, being a sci-fi nerd and all, but if I have to choose the fandom I love the most that's without a doubt Star Wars. I've been a Star Wars fan since I was a pre-teen, when the re-release of the original trilogy came out in the late 90s. I read the Expanded Universe books, I role-played with my friends, I wrote fan fiction...yup.

Breaking the Biting Habit - July

I have a Breaking the Biting Habit update for you guys today. I meant to do these every few weeks but it looks like for now it'll be a monthly feature. As you can see I took pictures every week, since I kept meaning to make the posts but life got in the way.

HePicksMyPolish July Challenge - Dots

Essie Lollipop
Hello readers! I'm doing much better, my shoulder is still sore but my back doesn't hurt as much and the burn is now a reddish, bumpy area on my neck. This week it's HePicksMyPolish week! It's a great challenge where you have a "he" in your life pick out some colors and you have to make a design with whatever they choose. This is my 1st time actively participating even though I attempted something last month. The colors my husband picked were so awful that I just kept getting frustrated and angry. The colors themselves were ok, but they all had such different formulas and I had very limited nail art supplies that all my ideas were massive fails. Alas, now I have more supplies and I told him to try to stick to one section of the stash (cause I have them sorted by brand) so it would be easier on me. Maybe when I'm better at nail art I'll let him pick from wherever.

Pink Nail Art - Life In Lacquer July Challenge

Hard Candy Piece of Papaya

Today's prompt for Life in Lacquer's July Challenge is pink. I used China Glaze Feel the Breeze as a base with some Hard Candy Piece of Papaya accents. Due to the challenge I won't be posting my usual PAA Mani Monday or BHB Nails pic. Look for those sometime later on during the week.

This month I'm participating in my first monthly challenge! This is an easy one hosted by Life in Lacquer, every Monday and Thursday there will be a new theme.
