Guest Post from Emily of The Lacquerologist

Gooood Morning lovelies! Today I have a guest post to share with you from my absolute best blogging buddy Emily of The Lacquerologist! Emily and I met through the Black and White Challenge that we participated in throughout April and have been tight ever since. We got to do the Abstract Nail Art Challenge together through June and we also *might* have something coming in September! Keep an eye out ;) We're totally challenge buddies and I'm super excited that Emily is taking over my blog for the day. She posts some amazing nail art and she recently graduated from Nail Tech School!! So she's also a pro. So let's let Emily take it away!!


Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be here at Sincerely Stephanie today!  Stephanie is such a sweetheart, and sometimes I feel like we must have been separated at birth because we seem to have a lot in common =)  Anyway, it is an honor to be here!

For my guest post, I wanted to do something super fun and on trend, so I did an ombre stripes manicure!  This look was inspired by [this mani] on!  I used two coats of Julep Kate for my base and accelerated the drying process with a coat of NYC top coat.  Then I applied striping tape and carefully painted on the ombre!  From light to dark, I used the following polishes:  Julep Hayden, Julep Parker, China Glaze Papaya Punch, Sinful Colors Citrine, and Wet N Wild Wild Shine Red Red.  After allowing it to dry for quite some time to prevent smearing, I applied NYC again to smooth it all out! =) 

I love using ombre colors in different ways than just one on each finger!  Do you like the ombre trend? =)  Thanks for reading today!  Love you all and hope to see you over at The Lacquerologist too!


I loooooove it! You all know how much I adore stripes and to add another element too boot? Em you knocked it out of the park! I completely love it! Make sure you all head over to The Lacquerologist and follow Emily!

Hope you are all having a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by! :D


  1. What an awesome idea, I love this!!! Fantastic job Emily!

  2. This looks so good!! Makes me think of solero ice lollies!!

  3. Lovely colours! Makes me want to have a Campino candy, orange flavour of course. I've always wanted to do an ombre mani, but I don't have the right shades for it...guess my stash isn't big enough yet.

  4. Love this ombre version! So bright and fun!

  5. Really nice Ombre nail art done... colors looks so pretty

  6. This is beautiful, what a great idea! So many possible colour options.
