Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coats Spoiled Toad-Ally
1 Coat Essie As Gold as it Gets
1 Coat Revlon Sheer Seafoam

Hard to believe that I've had Revlon Sheer Seafoam for over 6 months and only got to wearing it recently. I don't even want to think how many other untried polishes are crying out from my Helmer for some love! I remember seeing turquoise paired with gold and just loving that combination. And about me not using As Gold as it Gets... Well...

Maybe once I get another gold flake glitter, I'm sure I'll be obsessed with using that. I must find one in silver also. Something about irregular flakies in nail polish makes me all giddy inside. I received a couple of compliments on this manicure, something that always makes my day!

Sheer Seafoam is an interesting polish. It's a super-sheer blue-green that lends itself to jelly sandwiches so well! It has the level of sheerness that the Zoya flakies have. So sheer that you can layer it over a polish and not worry about it drastically changing the color of the polish, glitter, or flakies underneath. I wish someone would come out with a whole collection of jellies, because I can't get enough of them. Especially when it comes to my love for layering! And about that flaky polish I'm in search of...

What's your favorite gold flaky polish?

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.

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 coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

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 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.
