The Lacquer Legion: Adoration


It's the second month of The Lacquer Legion and the second time that I am late with my mani. The theme this month is Adoration and I knew instantly what I was going to do for me mani. 

There is no-one else that I adore more than my Hubs (Apart from Ki.......when he is behaving).
 Hubs runs a video game review site called Gert Lush Gaming and, as a couple, we adore video games, so a little bit of shameless promotion on the thumb I attempted (terribly) to do the GLG logo. 

For my other 4 digits, I decided on 4 8-bit hearts, hearts being a symbol of love and adoration, and of course, video game related.


I used a base of Barry M Black on the thumb and freehanded the GLG with Barry M Matt White.
Then for the fingers I used a base of Barry M Matt White, Barry M Black for the heart outline and Nails Inc St James for the red.


I had many a plan on how I was going to do the hearts, but they all failed miserably and I ended up doing it freehand using a dotting tool. I like the imperfection of them and the fact that the differ in size. I also decided to do half a heart on the pinkie because it started to remind me of a retro arcade type health bar.


I topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite, then a coat of Rimmel Matte Top Coat.

If you would like to see the other mani's people have done for this months Lacquer Legion, search for the hashtag #LLadoration on any social media site and if you would like to take part in next months theme, checkout The Lacquer Legion Facebook page.
