Lacquistry You're Invited and The Glue Method

I finally got my hands on some Lacquistry polish! I was very excited about this because she was one the first Indie polish makers I came across when I started blogging, it just took me a year to finally buy some! And now I have 3 bottles!

I thought that I would finally try the Glue Method with this design also! You get 2 new things in one post, yeah! :)

To start my mani, I applied a layer of Elmer's School Glue using a flat nail brush.  I applied just enough to get a white covering on my nails.  Then I sat back and waited for the glue to dry, it turns transparent.  It doesn't take that long to dry, but I waited a few extra minutes to make sure it was completely dry.

Next I applied 2 coats of butter LONDON Union Jack Black.  This is a polish that I have been wanting to add to my inventory for some time and now it is mine! I is a fabulous black that was opaque in 2 coats and the formula was perfect.



Here is You're Invited:



I didn't want to just add the polish, got to make it interesting right?
I taped off a diagonal and added the yummy glitter and topped it off with 2 coats of HK Girl.




Look at the sparkle!



I am very happy with my first Lacquistry and can't wait to try the other 2!

And here is the result of the Glue Method.



Overall I have to say that I like the Glue Method because the glitter comes off so easy, but it did start chipping the next morning. Boo :(  For a one day glitter mani I will totally use this method!

  1. Wow that is a gorgeous top coat! I'm in love! I think I may have to invest... ;)
    I use a similar type of polish as a base when using glitter, but find it also chips a bit too easily, probably because it's so easy to remove :(

  2. As much as the glue method has saved my hands for the 31 day nail challenge, my manicure lasts maybe 2 or three days tops. I still really love it for glitter as it makes me not dread its removal!

  7. I really need to try this method because I don't keep my nail art on for more than one day and my fingers are getting crazy dried out from all the acetone! :) I love this mani and how it's Halloween but subtle!

  10. oh my god that is an amazing halloween glitter, I like how you taped it off diagonally too. I haven't tried any Lacquistry yet either but it was one of the first Indie brands I had ever heard of. Maybe some day :)

  11. I've tried the glue method, but it doesn't come off easily. What am I doing wrong?

    1. You might have put one too thin of a layer, make sure it it white, but don't put too much on. Don't use a base coat first. Try running you nails under some warm water to loosen the glue. Hope this is helpful. :)

  12. Very cool mani!
    So how do you think Butter's Union Jack Black compares to OPI's Black Onyx in color?

    1. Good question. I have actually never used Black Onyx so I can't answer. :(
