Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday--Lacquerish!

Hi Everyone!  I'm a little late in the day with this one but better late than never LOL!  Awhile ago my friend Kerrie was searching high and low for an Essence plate to do a mani she had seen on Lacquerish.  I met Kerrie through the Adventures In Stamping Facebook group and she really knocks em dead with her mani's.  In her frantic search to try to recreate a mani she loved, I decided to check it out myself and see if it was something I could do.  And low and behold it was but with a twist.  Lacquerish posted a super cool magnetic stamped design never a year ago and that's the one Kerrie really wanted to do.

I didn't have the golds to do the mani with so I decided not to give up my green and go with a green magnetic.  It's supposed to look like a tiger but to me it looks sort of alligatorey 
I feel like the tiger stripes would look better just a little thicker
I love this green magnetic from Nabi though!  It's really lovely
Here's a side by side comparison of before and after stamping with the Nabi green
Isn't it cool??

To see the original design by Lacquerish, which is super kick ass check it out HERE

My friend Kerrie was a page on Facebook called Nailed It and can be found HERE

Please take the time to check them both out!

And as promised here's a couple of pics of the gang for St Patrick's Day dinner on Saturday
This is my family and I love them!  Even the niece's BF Dylan is awesome!

Here's just a shot of the food the best I could get it--nom nom nom!
Definitely can't wait for next year already!  

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you all have a fantastic night!

  2. This is an awesome idea. I need to try this in the future, since I have a magnetic polish lying around that I never use.

  4. Can't help but wondering who's the niece's BF Dylan. The sad dude with the yellow shirt? Kinda, everyone besides his depressesness really do look cool!
    And your mani is amazing and I deff prefer it WITH the stamping!!!

    My only complaint about this post is - you have very little food in there ;-)
    Next week it's the passover dinner here. I'll try to get some pics of the table and then you'll understand what i'm talkin aout ;-)

  6. Pretty mani...as always. My nails are shorter that yours and I still can't get the magnet design all the way to the tips or to show as strong. Put this on the list of tutorials I'm asking for. LOL You have a gorgeous family thank you for sharing. I no longer eat potatoes but those golden goodness are calling my name.
