The Lacquer Legion: Reinvention

Hi everyone, 
I've decided to take part in the challenge organised by the Lacquer Legion (click here to find out more). It was created by Sarah (Chalkboard Nails), Sammy (The Nailasaurus), Rebecca (Rebecca Likes Nails) and Leslie (Work/Play/Polish). 
The idea is that once a month, they will give a prompt, and on the chosen day everyone will post their interpretations of the prompt.
I personally think this is a great idea as it is a less intense way of doing a nail art challenge, which isn't continuous like the 31 Day Challenge.

This months theme is Reinvention. This was a pretty hard prompt, but I had a rough idea of what I wanted to do, here's what I came up with:

I used Rimmel Brit Manicure in Porcelain.

For the theme I thought I'd have a go at reinventing the classic French Manicure. Instead of having a straight line, I decided to do freehand a wavy line.

Here is a closer look at the design:

Overall I really like this design. It gives a fun twist on the classic french manicure design, and it's something I definitely haven't seen before. I love the subtlty of it too.

Are you taking part in the Lacquer Legion?
Do you like my Reinvention themed nail art?
Let me know what you think


  1. I like it! I was gonna go for a french mani too but decided it was too simple but I love how you twisted it up :)

  2. How simple and what a twist on the original french manicure :)

  3. Cute! It reminds me a bit of snow as well, still totally appropriate for this time of the year :)

    1. Thank you! Ooh I see what you mean - I never thought about it like that! :)

  4. I love the look of these -- classic, but with a twist! Your natural nails are gorgeous :D

    1. Thank you, that's exactly what I was aiming for! Aww, you're so kind! :)
