Anonymous Lacquer ~ Waka Waka

Anonymous Lacquer ~ Waka Waka
Red, pink and holographic microglitter

I have earlier had Mildred from Anonymous Lacquer make me some custom polishes. I enjoy the pretty result a lot so I decided to ask her if she wanted to make some more. Fortunately she said yes.

I decided to let some songs inspire me this time. The first one is named after that song Shakira made for the 2010 FIFA World Cup: Waka Waka.

This is what two layers of Waka Waka and a layer of topcoat looks like when photographed with flash:

Here’s the video that was made for the song:

The music video for "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" was directed by Marcus Raboy and shows Shakira and a group of dancers and children dancing to the song together. It features cameos by various footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. It is very popular on YouTube, receiving 1.19 billion views as of October 2016 and becoming the twenty-second most-watched video of all time on the site. Impressive, isn’t it!

This picture is intentionally blurry to show off the bling!

I stamped on it but am not really happy with the end result. I used my new plate from Chez Delaney called “Water Marble”. I love the motifs, but this particular motif doesn’t want to be picked up properly by a clear stamper. I know this is far from my most beautiful stamping but I wore it like this and I actually really liked it.

This picture is taken in the shade.

Waka Waka is the only one of its kind. I love it!
