My NYC Nails Featuring Rogue Lacquer's Bayou Mermaid

Greetings, dear readers! I'm currently having some computer/phone interface issues so my post about The Makeup Show in New York City is temporarily on hold. Until then, I thought I would share my nails for the event.

I didn't get my nails painted before I left town, but I knew exactly what I wanted for my manicure for the show. While attending Polish Con last month, I picked up a New Orleans grab bag by Rogue Lacquer. One of the items in the bag was Bayou Mermaid, a polish that was an exclusive created just for in the grab bag. I had been eager to get this beauty on my nails, and with the range of blues in my clothing for the weekend, it was the perfect opportunity. In my liquids bag it was tossed along with a base and top coat so I could be polished in the city. Check it out!

How pretty is this polish! The icy blue base is accented with blue shimmers and flakies in a plethora of colours.

This polish was a little on the sheer side, and I needed to use three coats to reach opacity on my nails. In spite of all the flakes, the application was a dream come true! They do give a bit of a textured feeling to the nails, but a couple coats of top coat smoothed my nails down nicely.

This polish is gorgeous, and I hope you picked up a New Orleans grab bag! Unfortunately it is no longer available on the website, but it totally needed some time to shine here on my blog! There are many other stunning Rogue Lacquer shades available with more on the way, so be sure to check out the website!

Cross your fingers for me that I am able to figure out my phone/computer interface issues so I can get my post on The Makeup Show soon!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful evening!
