Instagram Roundup: Summer Lacquer Trends

Summer is finally here! Now is the perfect time to play around with your nails and try some of the top nail art trends. We turned to Instagram to find which shades are going to be big this season. Here are some of our favorites!

White lacquer has been popular for a while and we know it’s going to be even hotter this summer. White nails complement any outfit and look great against tan skin.


@natsnailsevans rocks white lacquer with trendy stiletto nails and heart nail art.


@may_nailart uses glitter and a pink accent nail to make her white manicure really pop.


@lacapucinee’s cross accent and matte topcoat perfectly match her gold accessories.

Mint green is the perfect shade to transition from spring to summer. This pastel hue is chic and looks fab with so many other shades. 


@monica_camposs accents her fun leopard nails with mint French tips.


@susieq1980 gives mint a neon twist with a vibrant watercolor accent nail.


@justkimkar uses blue and green jewel tones to create a chic color blocked manicure.

The shade we are most excited about this summer is coral. So many people love to pair coral with silver, which makes this color even prettier!


@natify_your_nails adds subtle shine to her coral nails with delicate silver lines.


@_nailsup_’s coral half moons look fab with polka dots and a glittery bow.


@alexiamada’s gorgeous coral nails are brightened with shiny silver glitter.

Instagram Roundup: Fresh Spring Nail Art

Spring is officially here and we are on the lookout for this season’s hottest nail art! As you know, one of our favorite places to get manicure inspiration is Instagram. We love seeing how people experiment with their nails using the top luxury lacquer brands. Here are some of the biggest trends in nail art right now straight from Instagram! (Remember, if you’re a Lacquerous member aka Lacqueen please send us your pics to share!)

The French manicure is always on trend and this season many people are playing around with the classic style.


Vladi_07’s mismatched French mani is so fun! Laura_ahn used the sparkly Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday on her tips. Arielalaib topped Deborah Lippmann Waking Up in Vegas with a silver Sally Hansen lacquer for a cool geometric look.

Polka dots have been seen a lot on the spring runways and they make for an easy nail art technique to recreate.


Misturinhachic used several different Dior Vernis shades to create a colorful, Easter egg-inspired manicure. Crimsonlovesyou topped Butter London Lady Muck with Royal Navy dots and a matte topcoat. Mixing royal blue Dior Blue Denim and Essie No Place Like Chrome created a stellar manicure for Fraise_chocolat.


Leopard print adds dimension to your manicure, whether you are rocking it on all of your nails or just as an accent design.


Britbere88 used OPI Gargantuan Green Grape as the base for a neutral leopard print. To add something special to her neon leopard nails, Yannyglez topped them with an OPI matte topcoat. This purple and lavender Dior Vernis design from likemycookie is pretty and sophisticated.


Nude nails work for everyone and these ladies chose the perfect luxury shades for their complexions.


Forecast_for_fashion’s talons look great in Tom Ford Toasted Sugar. Chanel Le Vernis Beige helps Chanel_svp’s short nails look longer. Danariehna’s manicure looks glossy and elegant thanks to Chanel Le Vernis Emprise.

Welcome to Lacquerous! “Netflix For Nails” has arrived!

The day has come: Lacquerous has finally gone live! Now you have access to a fabulous inventory of luxury lacquers that are available to try without having to buy.

Thanks to Refinery 29 for breaking the story yesterday. Check out what they had to say, along with others. 

"We love this idea — access to designer-ready digits without having to shell out $30 for a single polish? Genius. We’ve rarely, if ever, used an entire bottle of polish in our lives — usually we get halfway down and they start getting all tacky and hard to use, so we just chuck them. This gives you the opportunity to try the latest shades, without the commitment or the hefty price tag. And, for those of you germaphobes worried about shared polish being unsanitary, remember that the polishes you use at the nail salon are just that: communal, meaning lots of other people have used them. Not to mention the fact that nail polish manufacturers have to make sure that their lacquers are safe despite how many people are using them, meaning that polish is not a cesspool of icky bacteria, thank you very much.” ~Refinery 29

In this anti-ownership era, anyone one can have anything for a limited time only. We bike share, Zipcar, and Netflix our way through the day without having to sign anything permanent. Websites like Rent the Runway and Bag Borrow or Steal allow a tenuous hold on whatever the heart desires (within company-defined limits). Lacquerous, a brand-new nail polish sharing company, combines the rental aspect of Rent the Runway with the subscription model of Birchbox, to allow any girl to dip her nails into a variety of luxury polishes for a flat rate of $18 a month. ~ TIME Style

The most common question we receive is naturally about hygiene. Yep, we’ve heard it all! The fact is that, as microbiologists confirm, no fungus, bacteria, microbe or anything living can survive in a bottle of nail polish. At Lacquerous, bottles are sealed for at least 1 day in transit and we inspect all bottles received. The truth is, whether we want to admit it or not, we all take a risk when sharing makeup at a department store or eating from a salad bar or touching a handrail.. If you are germaphobe, then sadly this probably isn’t for you. 

Some of the other common questions we’ve been getting are: What if I use to much? Will I get a new bottle everytime?  The answer is, much like a club, it’s about sharing the product. We provide an experience to our members to try luxury lacquer. We’ll never send you anything that isn’t Instagram worthy ;) All we ask is that you stick to the guidelines as close as possible and we’ll make sure you will enjoy being a part of Lacquerous. We’re less like Big Brother and a lot more like a big sister! All these questions are answered on the website too.

Now, for the fun part! What colors do you want to try? You can email Lacquerous while you are waiting! Here are some of the designer brands already available:

Butter London


Deborah Lippmann


Dolce & Gabbana
