Guest Post: The Lacquerologist Ikat Dotticure!

Hi dolls! I officially fail as a blogger. I'm moving (yes, again) but more permanently this time and my boyfriend and I are getting ready to go on our first out of state vacay together (!!!!!) so I've been a frazzled mess. I hope to get back to regularly scheduled blogging just as soon as we've settled into our new place and our vacation finishes but for now check out some GORGEOUS nail art from the lovely Emily at The Lacquerologist. A fellow nail tech & inspiration of mine (which you know if you read my post on her blog here), Emily never disappoints with her eye for color combos and fantastic art! Enjoy!


Hello readers!  This is Emily from The Lacquerologist, and I am so excited to guest post for Kim today!  I think Kim is one of the sweetest girls I have met in the blogging community, and I love that she has followed her passion to become a nail tech! =)  I decided to do a skittle manicure featuring dots and ikat for my guest post...I hope you enjoy it!

I used Wet N Wild Wild Shine Teal Slowly And See from the Pop Art Craze Collection.  My accent nails were done in Wet N Wild Wild Shine French White and Wet N Wild Wild Shine Black Creme, as well as It's So Easy StripeRite in black and white.  I sealed everything in with Glisten & Glow HK Girl, and I was just so impressed that my dots didn't smear (and I only let them dry for about three minutes)!  This manicure is simple and easy, but I think it's really fun!

Thank you so much to Kim for having me here today on College Polished!  It's an honor!  If you like what you see, make sure to check out my blog [here] and my Facebook page [here]!  You can also follow me on twitter and Instagram @lacquerologist!


GORGEOUS!!! I've never tried the ikat design but now it's at the top of my to-do list! Thank you again Emily!
