Hooray, Nutcracker season is over!! My December was pretty much consumed by doing those twenty performances, so much so that I sadly only got to do one Christmas mani. But as fun as the run was, I'm glad to be done with it for another year, and we've got a few weeks now of just rehearsals so I can actually (hopefully) have time to do some nail art again!
I just recently received the LaCC Fall release polishes in the mail and hadn't had time to play with them yet, so I decided to use the black 2002 as the base for my nail art. There will be a full review of this collection up shortly, as soon as I finish swatching them all.
For now, all you need to know is that this is just one fabulous coat of 2002! The nail art was painted freehand with a nail art brush and Barry M Gold Foil. I picked up that polish while I was in London because I had heard good things about painting and stamping with it; this was the first time I've tried it and let me say that I was super impressed! I'm normally one for only freehanding with acrylic paints because I find polishes difficult to work with (especially in line work). But this polish was so super easy to work with, it will definitely be a go-to from now on!
It's been a long time since I've done any freehand work, especially attempted fine lines like this, so I was a bit nervous going into it. But in the end, I was really pleased with how it turned out! It has a bit of a Gatsby 20's vibe to it, which I'm loving the feel of! What do you think? :)
