Tiger Stripe Nail Art Manicure with Sweet & Sour Lacquer How Do You Like Them Apples

PRESS SAMPLE

Good morning! I hope you are warm & well today. It’s currently 10 degrees but with “real feel” of 3 😬. I’ve created some nail art with both polishes from the Harvest Gala collab: today I’m showing my tiger stripes/slasher nail art manicure with Sweet & Sour Lacquer How Do You Like Them Apples?, using Julie G Black Sheep as the stripes.

I love how breaking up the manicure with the black slashes really helps those flakies pop out even more! Don’t forget this polish is available for preorder starting October 24 through 30 at http://www.sweetandsourlacquer.com.

No comments, other than it’s nice coverage.

Star Blue Silver Meteor Shower over Sinful Colors Blue Me Away
The glitter on this is sparse! I had to place that one star you see. It’s a shame. :/

Funny story, I was trying to take pictures of this manicure in the sunlight and my cat would not move her butt out of the way – so yup, there’s a cat paw in the next picture. 😛 Also, this is back in March when Montana winter was wreaking havoc on my nails and I couldn’t grow them out worth s***!
