One of the most beautiful things about blogging is, there’s no roadmap to success. You create your own as you go, you chart your destiny and sometimes, if you work really hard for a really long time, you can develop opportunities that are bigger than you ever dared to dream. That’s been my experience, and I’ve also seen this happen for quite a few of my friends online. One of those friends is Michelle, the creator of All Lacquered Up – one of the most well respected, knowledgeable, informative and fun nail polish blogs on the internet.

All Lacquered Up is a resource for me to see what’s hot in the world of nail polish in terms of color and texture. Like myself, Michelle isn’t a pale pink/nude kind of girl. She loves bold, bright, outstanding colors. And now she’s got her own limited edition nail polish collection, available for sale at Sally Beauty Supply!


The All Lacquered Up collection is called A Pair Affair, and the whole concept was about duality, color pairing, and the fact that Michelle’s a Gemini. Click here to read the awesome backstory on her creating the collection!

The colors she’s paired together are absolutely gorgeous compliments to each other. Here are the duos, as intended:

Our Tips Are Tealed and Bare No Secrets

Our Tips Are Tealed & Bare No Secrets

Sarong So Right You Yacht To Know Better

Sarong, So Right  &  You Yacht to Know Better

Sage It Ain't So A Grape Catch

Sage It Ain’t So  &  A Grape Catch


And Michelle describes the colors like this:

A Grape Catch – “glorious silvery grape with glitter and glass flecks”

Sage It Ain’t So – “a softer, earthier take on glass fleck.”

Bare No Secrets – “a sparkly sand that would flatter a wide range of skin tones…slightly cool base with golden glitter”

Our Tips Are Tealed – “this deep, blue-green sparkler is my perfect teal. It’s got a lot of green in its base but the blue shines through as well. It brings a whole party bus of glitter with it that amps up the sparkle to a whole new level.”

Sarong, So Right — “holographic glitter suspended in a coral jelly”

You Yacht to Know Better — “There’s a color the sky turns, just before a storm, that I can’t get out of my brain. It’s probably my favorite blue in the world and I feel like I’ve been chasing it since birth. I originally wanted to bring it to life as a foil metallic but this creamy concoction peppered with bright blue glitter captures the feeling so much better.”


How AWESOME to be able to create your dream color, right? I totally need Our Tips Are Tealed and A Grape Catch in my life!

The FingerPaints “A Pair Affair” by All Lacquered Up nail polish collection is now available online at, and also at Sally Beauty store nationwide. They’re $5.29 a bottle. YAY, Michelle!

Colored nails are really nice to look at especially when you apply style on it. I have studied nail art and it really is something worth doing.
