Frilly Freehand Filigree Nail Art

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Today's post can be for the holidays - or any time. Who doesn't love gold over a deep red shimmery polish?

Like most of my random free hand nail designs, I didn't really have a design in mind when I started. I just let the brush run rampant. 

I used Dance Legend Red Show #06 for the base color. This deep red is vampy and has tons of "lit from within" shimmer. The design was completed using Elevation Polish Tre Cime di Lavaredo, which is a gorgeous gold holographic polish. I topped it off with a coat of HK Girl.

I like how this design turned out. It's definitely random and frilly.

On a Winter's night - jelly nail art

Sunday, December 14, 2014

Today's post is some fun magical nail art. There's something awe inspiring about seeing trees on a mountainside with the night's glow illuminating them. So that's the illusion I tried to create.

Winter/holiday scene nail art

I started with two coats of Elevation Polish "Pic de Sotllo." This deep, royal blue polish was perfect for the base color. 

Then I added some "snow banks" by sponging on white and gray acrylic paint. I also sponged on some black to give it a bit of depth. I sponged on white trees and then added some details with black acrylic paint. I painted over the trees with Dance Legend 605 top coat. It was just the right amount of sparkle. Then I added a few dots with white paint to add some snowy illusions. I topped it all off with a coat of Esmaltes da Kelly sheer blue jelly polish.

I added a top coat of HK Girl and I had the look I was going for. 

Have you added sheer jelly polish over nail art? It gives it a completely different look.

Branch out with easy holiday nail art

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

It's been a week of holiday nail art so far. Why am I posting it so early? Basically to give you ideas for quick and easy nail art.

If you're like me, you see something and want to recreate it... but with your own twist. So for today's holiday nail art I created a easy, yet almost three-dimensional Christmas tree on an almost starlit base.

Let's take a look. 

I started out with two coats of Fancy Gloss My Sailor. This shade has become my "go to blue"polish.

Then I added a coat of Dance Legend 607 top coat to add a sparkle that would appear as a quiet, starry night. 

I used a acrylic paints to add the base of snow and the tree. Gray paint was added first. Then, using varying shades of greens I created the tree. I added some white paint for the flocking effect and different colors of paint for the decorations. I had some metal star-shaped studs so they were perfect for the topper on the tree and as an accent on the other nails. I topped it off with a coat of HK Girl to seal in the design and add lots of glossy shine.

Who knows what I will come up with for the next holiday nail art. Sometimes it is hard to come up with something that I a.) actually think I can pull off and b.) is remotely creative.

In the meantime, feel free to post your holiday inspired nails on the Set in Lacquer Facebook page.

Making grapes into sparkling wine: stamping, jelly polish and sparkle

Sunday, November 16, 2014

I recently realized I haven't picked up my stamper in almost a year. So I decided to reacquaint myself with it. Needless to say, I am out of practice, so I decided to create a "stampwich" with jelly polishes. Using this technique is easy and it hides most imperfections.

I recently purchased some of the Colors by Llarowe jelly polishes; so of course, I had to try one of  them. I chose Grape Juice. Grape Juice is a deep purple jelly polish. Jelly polishes require a build up of layers to get them to an opaque state. They are perfect for stampwiches, pond manis and other nail art.

I started with two coats of Grape Jelly and then stamped with a white polish. For the stamp, I used an image from the Bundlemonster 204 plate.

Then I applied another coat of Grape Jelly and topped it off with Dance Legend 600 to give it sparkle.

I may have to try this more often. So, I guess I will be practicing with stamping a little more often.

Tape and holographic polish create gorgeous geometric glam

Wednesday, April 30, 2014


I love holographic nail polish. It is glorious to see in the sunshine, although I haven't seen much of the sun this week. But in the hopes that it would peek its yellow rays out to say "hello," I put on a holo nail polish.

Dance Legend has some of the most amazing holographic polishes out there. I only have a few of them, and I love each and every one of them. For this mani, I wanted something a little beyond just holographic. But not too complicated as I just didn't have the time to invest in nail art. So I created a simple tape mani.

For the base coat I used Barielle Blue Capri. Then I used nail art tape in horizontal and vertical placement. After that, I simply applied Dance Legend Optical Illusion and removed the tape - Instant nail art!

If you love nail art, but don't feel you have the time - try the nail art tape as a template. You will love it!

Dance Legend #4 - Optical Illusion swatches

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

I have an amazing polish to share with you. I recently acquired Dance Legend #4 - Optical Illusion. Oh my goodness - this polish is amazing!  The linear holo effect is strong; even in indirect light. Dance Legend originates from Russia.

The polish applied wonderfully. I do think it has a longer than normal dry time. Even with a top coat of Seche Vite I had to be extremely careful for a bit.

Optical Illusion - is a positively stunning deep murky rose shade. It completely dances across your fingernails in the sunlight. I took some photos with a flash, and in normal room lightingI should have taken a photo earlier with the sun was bright. However now the sun has decided to play shy and only peek from behind the clouds. But earlier today (of course I was at work) the sunlight brought multiple prisms out. This polish is an eye-catcher and had everyone commenting about it.
