Bananas

I apologize for the lack of pics on this one... Initially I wasn't too thrilled with how this polish turned out, but it's growing on me the longer I wear it! If you've ever hunted for the perfect yellow... I'm sure you understand my plight!


Revlon Crystal Glow, Sinful Colors Unicorn
 

So I don't have pics of either of these polishes on their own, and this is the only pic I took, because I didn't really like how this turned out at first. Yellows are known to be streaky little buggers, and Unicorn by Sinful Colors is no exception. I really wanted to wear yellow polish, so I originally tried Designated Driver by Spoiled. I remember loving that shade when I bought it, but it was doing absolutely nothing for me this time around. So I reached for Unicorn by Sinful Colors.

Unicorn is a chalky pastel yellow color. Very pastel, chalky, and cool-toned. It did absolutely nothing for my nails or skin tone.

Recently I picked up Revlon Crystal Glow, a yellow jelly that's super sheer. It has a warmer vibe to it... somewhere between a banana peel and a really ripe pineapple. It added a lot of warmth to Unicorn, creating the shade above. It also evened out some of the streaks, but obviously not all of them.

Polished Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats SinfulColors Unicorn
1 Coat Revlon Crystal Glow
1 Coat Seche Vite

Unicorn definitely wasn't as streaky as some polishes I've tried, but I can still see noticeable streaks on my nails where I wouldn't with other shades. And that bugs me. I know there are a bunch of other yellows out there, and I just need to find one with a little more oomph. The color might be growing on me, but the search for my perfect yellow is faaaaaaar from over. :)

What's your favorite yellow polish?

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…
