MANI MONDAY: F.U.N. Lacquer Empire w. Lotus Stamping

by - April 16, 2018

Hey guys! I have to admit that today's mani is definitely more about the base polish that the nail art. Unfortunately, I got hit with some food poisoning that basically laid me out for the entire weekend, so when I went to put my Mani Monday together I didn't have a lot of energy for intricate nail art. That said, this kind of nail art definitely has its place, in my opinion. A gorgeous base polish that's impactful on it's own with a little bit of metallic stamping to oomph. Perfect - and fast!

Keep reading for a closer look and to see how I got this look!

F.U.N. Lacquer's Empire is a polish I picked up from a fellow local nail polish junkie who found it just wasn't what she was expecting to be - and I feel like I hit the jackpot. This strong berry polish is packed with scattered holo and looks really dimensional and gorgeous. This is three coats and it definitely needs a really glossy top coat, but... I mean, it's just SO PRETTY it performs really beautifully on the nail. 

It's a shame, in my opinion, to cover this base with too much so I decided to go with this pretty lotus stamp from the Born Pretty Store BP-L076 stamping plate using Bundle Monster Magic Hour Stamping Polish. I love how this stamp gives it something pretty without being too overwhelming. I have a feeling this image is going to get a lot of use by me in the future for more subtle nail art looks.

Like I said, I didn't have a lot of energy to do my nails coming off such a horrible weekend... but I feel like this mani doesn't really scream lazy because the base polish is so impactful. Overall, I'm super happy with the look and glad it came together so quickly.

Thanks for reading!
