February The Lacquer Legion: Adoration Prompt

Good morning, dear readers! I have been insanely busy this past week with finalizing my move, and as of yesterday, I have officially moved to California. It still doesn't feel real, and thankfully I'm no longer feeling as overwhelmed as I did two weeks ago. I must say, moving several bottles of polish has been quite an experience. I have since rediscovered a few things during packing, so I'll probably have a few oldies but goodies appear on my blog over the next few months. As for today's post, I decided to participate in The Lacquer Legion's monthly nail art prompts, and this month's prompt is ADORATION (#LLadoration). Why don't I first show you what I chose to do and then get into how I decided on this particular manicure...

Polishes used:
Essence nail colour: A Walk in the Park
Zoya: Aurora
Nailtini: Champagne

I am really excited about this manicure! I had done a bit of Valentine's Day nail art, so I chose to take a slightly different approach for this theme. My favorite nail art technique is still the fishtail, and I knew I just had to use it for the ADORATION prompt this month. I also chose to use a green and a purple because they are the colours I am currently the most drawn to. I absolutely love how the different finishes of these polishes play together, and I think it makes for a much more interesting fishtail pattern.

If you would like to participate in these monthly nail art challenges, keep on eye on The Lacquer Legion's Facebook page for each month's prompt and hashtag. Anyone is welcome to join, and if you just aren't feeling too inspired one month, you don't have to contribute. It's definitely a fun way to do some nail art you might not otherwise think about trying out!

Until next time, dear readers, have a great day!
