This month's theme from The Lacquer Legion was "lucky." Omg I was so stuck on this theme. Seriously I couldn't think of anything to do. I feel like I've had the nail art equivalent of "writer's block" for the longest time. I've just been posting swatches of polishes. :( I really couldn't figure out what to do with this theme. I didn't want it to end up looking like a late St. Patty's Day/Chinese New Year mani. I ended up going with green + gold glitter. Still kind of St. Patty's Day-esque but at least no four leaf clovers!
I didn't have any luck at all taking pictures of this mani though :( complete fail! The color is so off! I tried to color correct and it's still a bit off... and now my skin looks all weird and yellow because I'm still pretty clueless at trying to adjust the white balance on my camera. I'm lucky that most of the time my camera gets it right. But not today.

Here is a shot of this mani using the auto setting on my camera. It's a beautiful dusty blue color that my camera invented lol. Hey Color Club maybe you should make this color! It's nice right?
Do you have any tips on how to photograph colors accurately? Any tips on how to adjust the color of the polish without making your skin a really weird color?
