The Lacquer Legion: YUMMY...Orange Leaf, my favorite!

 press sample 
Hi guys. It's time for Lacquer Legion! This month's theme is YUMMY. I had a bunch of ideas and originally thought I'd do something really complex, like realistic sushi. But then I decided to simply created the one thing I think is yummier than all the rest. A little over a year ago, the frozen yogurt chain, Orange Leaf, came to town. Ever since, my family has been obsessed. Like seriously obsessed. In fact, it's nearly freezing here today and I still contemplated stopping by on my way home from work. Does anyone else get on these kicks where you crave the same thing over and over?

I always get the same thing, pineapple dairy-free yogurt topped with Reese's Pieces, chocolate chips and nuts (don't judge me)! When I told Sarah (Chalkboard Nails) about my fave Orange Leaf combo, she replied, "Ew...your order is gross." What? She's crazy. It makes perfect sense to me. [Orange Leaf image below]


This look was really easy. I used all Zoya polishes: Arizona (orange), Tilda (green) and a mix of Darcy and Purity for the pineapple yogurt yellow. This nail is actually textured in real life. I polished one even coat first. Then I mixed the polish until is was stringy. I used a small brush to stroke on the swirls. The color turned out perfect! I freehanded the Orange Leaf logo with white acrylic paint. Without sounding too much like a commercial, you can find Orange Leaf franchises across the US.
