The Lacquer Legion: Reinvention

Today's post is my contribution to the very first posting of The Lacquer Legion!  The Lacquer Legion is a new monthly nail art challenge group hosted by Sarah, Rebecca, Leslie, and Sammy, and everyone can participate!  You can read more into detail in Sarah's post here

This month's theme is reinvention - to be interpreted in any way.  I was a little pressed for time and ideas but still wanted to participate, so I reinvented my second most popular nail art ever (but probably my favourite,) the half-moon gradient.  You can see my original post here

For those of you who are curious, my most popular post ever is my reciprocal gradient nail art, which has since spread across the internet and been re-created so many times!  

I chose to reinvent this look simply by changing up the colours to a combination I wish I'd tried ages ago, because I love it!  I started with two perfect coats of LaCC 1966, and a coat of LaCC 2013 top coat to speed things up.  Once that was all dry, I used hole reinforcers to mark off my half-moons, then sponged a gradient with 1966 and piCture pOlish Honey Dew.  It's all topped off with two coats of Seche Vite to smooth everything out.  

I'm so in love with how this turned out; I can't believe I waited over a year to re-create this look!!  I honestly can't decide if I like this or the original colour palette better... What do you think?  :)  

If you take part in this month's The Lacquer Legion challenge, remember to post to social media with the hashtag #LLreinvention  :)  I'll be sure to check out everyone's manis!


  1. I love the mani Emma. When I saw the first one that you did I fall in love. And this one, using green, it's perfect!!



  2. This is beautiful!

  3. very pretty! I love that it kind of matches your new color scheme on the blog, too!

  4. Both manis are super pretty, but I think I prefer today's version. More my kind of color ;)

  5. I really enjoy the blues with this manicure! Beautiful.

  6. wow love these. would definitely try out this one

  7. Love this! I think I like this color combo more than the original, but that's only because the teal is more up my alley than the purple.

  8. I adore this color combo SO so much ♥! It has all my favorite shades :D!
