Lacquer Links: $675 Nail Polish, Multichrome Flakies, Editing Instagram Captions and More

This week I'm starting a new feature called Lacquer Links! I hope to post a Lacquer Link roundup at least twice a month, with some of my favorite juicy bites and morsels of nail news. Think social media, but harder to miss! 

Sephora is selling a limited edition Christian Louboutin lacquer for $675 (!!!). The iconic Louboutin bottle is adorned with 1,800 hand applied Strass crystals. listening bro?

FLAKIE MANIA! I Love Nail Polish showed off a couple of mesmerizing swatches of the polishes in their upcoming Ultra Chrome Flakies line (preorder begins today at 11am PST), while GlitterDaze, Darling Diva, and Polish Me Silly announced similar releases. I've got the ILNPs to share with you soon!

Instagram's latest app update allows you to edit captions after an image has been posted! Suck it, typos!

Rescue Beauty Lounge showed off their nail polish collaboration with lifestyle website Refinery29. Check out some great swatches via Kellie Gonzo, Makeup Withdrawal, and Refined and Polished. I'm liking All About Yves and Pretty Gritty!

I love the elegance of this negative space floral design from Paulina's Passions.

Smitten Polish revealed their Holiday 2014 collection. I'll be picking up Between the Baubles and Maple Sugar Candy.

Nail artist power duo Nail Swag and Britney Tokyo have collaborated on a set of colored art gels with gel brand Presto. The collection goes on sale this Sunday 11/16 at!

This chair is everything.

ChristabellNails is known for awesome negative space work, but this nude look in particular had me swooning.

NYC's got a new glitter-off base coat like the ones previously released from Essence and OPI. No word on if it's out yet -- has anyone seen it in stores?


  1. Informative and hilarious. ..You listening bro? Haha! :) I am anxious to see your ILNP swatches. Look forward to your future Lacquer Links posts!

  2. Haha thanks! I'm definitely trying to keep things interesting and fun, cause while we all love learning about new nail stuff, it's even better if presented in a (hopefully) entertaining format. :)

  3. Aww. I am glad you liked my negative flowers, Sarah <3

  4. Woah, $675 is CRAZY! That's around R7000 to me. I could live off that for a good couple of months at least!
    Thank goodness for the IG editing change! :)

  5. awesome idea and fun post. something different - refreshing :)

  6. The NYC peel off base is out in the UK (not much help as to a release date for everyone else, sorry!) and I've had a couple of goes with it. I've found it peels better if you use two coats, which is okay as it dries really quickly - far quicker than my previous attempts with PVA glue! Another plus point is its price. You might like to avoid it or exercise caution if you have dry/peely nails - I definitely wouldn't use it two manicures in a row. I rarely use glitter polishes because I can't bear to sit still for the soak off process but I now see more sparkles in my future! And it's cheap! Yay! Definitely worth a go, when it gets released over the pond!

  7. I simply MUST have this limited edition Christian Louboutin lacquer in my collection. Please Santa, let me win Lotto and find someone in the US who will buy it on my behalf and send it to me.
