Wishing you a very happy Easter!

April 5, 2012

Hello lacquer lovers! I’m sure I can speak on behalf of Ally and Cait when I say that we wish you a very happy and safe Easter. If you’re lucky enough to have the entire long weekend away from work, be sure to enjoy yourself! If you’re unfortunate enough to work: Well, I hope that the extra pay and the lure of chocolate makes it all worthwhile.

Clearly my boyfriend’s lovely mum knows the way to my heart is through chocolate. And it’s certainly making the prospect of having to work two of the four long weekend days a little nicer. Plus, Picnic! Definitely a favourite.

What are you up to this easter? Any holiday plans? Chocolate requests? Going to spend the weekend practicing nail art? Seriously, let me know, I’d love to hear about it. :)

Welcome to The Lacquer Diaries!

March 24, 2012

Welcome to the blog! I can only really speak for myself here, but I am really excited to be getting this blog going (… and I’m sure that Ally feels the same). Sometimes it’s really nice to have an outlet, somewhere to share thoughts and emotions. Sometimes those thoughts and emotions are about nail lacquer… Okay, that’s pretty frequent with me at the moment.

I mean, you know it’s getting bad when you have a two hour conversation with your boyfriend’s sister about nail lacquers… And finish the conversation by buying a set of ~MYSTERY~ polishes from NZsale.

All in all, a very productive two hours!

Either way, you’ll be expecting a lot of lacquer reviews from the authors here at TLD. On top of that, I’m hoping we can provide you with news about new and exciting colours from our beloved brands, and with a bit of time on our side, some tutorials too.

So welcome! Add us to your readers, your rss feeds, your tumblr (yes, we’ve even got a tumblr!). We hope that you’ll enjoy what we have to offer!
