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?

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...

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 then add in some shimmer and glitter.

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
