Mini-Haul: Sephora Edition

After posting all those old manis, I realized it's been AWHILE since I picked up some new polish. Definitely not a huge haul by any means, but I still thought I'd share.

SOPI 212-Sephora, Hollywood If I Could, What's a Tire Jack, Nails Inc Sugar House Lane

When I went to Sephora on Saturday night, I have to say, I wasn't really looking for any of these. I was looking for a black and white glitter polish. Sugar House Lane is close, but not quite there. I thought for sure I'd find one at Sephora, but it doesn't seem like too many of the mainstream companies have jumped on the trend. China Glaze has Whirled Away in their Cirque de Soleil collection, so a trip to Sally Beauty is definitely in my future!

212-Sephora is a shade I've been wanting for quite some time. I remember being intrigued by it when it was first available for pre-order!

Hollywood If I Could is a translucent bar glitter, and I don't have anything like it in my collection. Normally I don't go for bar glitter at all, but I thought this could add some interesting depth to a manicure. We'll see... I think bar glitter tends to look messy and hairy more than anything, but perhaps I'll prove myself wrong!

What's a Tire Jack is black creme polish, and I know I'm not alone when I say you can't have too many of these!

Nails Inc Sugar House Lane has black and silver glitter in a taupe base. The taupe color mutes down the silver so it looks almost white in the bottle. I honestly can't wait to try this because it's pretty close to my layering style, just all in one bottle. I have a horrible habit of piling on the layers of polish to get the look I want, so this seems a bit more convenient!

What have you picked up from Sephora lately?

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit.  Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times.  This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd c

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put
