Nails Inc. Sugar House Lane

Nails Inc. is pretty good at staying on top of trends in the nail world, and their Sprinkles line of polishes is no exception. This line mimics the look of cupcake nails a.k.a. milky jelly sandwiches without the complication of layering.

Sugar House Lane by Nails Inc. Macro

Nails Inc. describes Sugar House Lane as a pastel gray with monochrome sprinkles. As you can see in the pics above, it's more of a dirty lavender than a true gray. Lately, this is pretty typical in the nail polish world. A true gray is difficult to find.

When I purchased Sugar House Lane from Sephora, it was evident that it was not a true gray, so I'm not disappointed in the color. I actually really like this shade. The monochrome sprinkles are black and silver glitter, but the silver is muted by the base coat, making it look like this is black and white glitter. Texture-wise, Sugar House Lane is BUMPY. There's definitely a texture here that I would've smoothed out with a couple coats of clear.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Nails Inc. Sugar House Lane
1 Coat Seche Vite

While I really love this polish, I'm missing the larger pieces of glitter that I've grown accustomed to seeing in my glitter polish. While this line is definitely on-trend, I feel like including different sized glitter would have really knocked it out of the park. Rarely do you see glitter polish that is just one size anymore, even if it's just one color. This is where the indie brands truly shine, because there are so many incredible black and white glitter polishes out there. I thought this would squash my lemming for one, but I was wrong. Time to do some research! Luckily for me, Sarah at Chalkboard Nails made an awesome comparison guide in this post.

What's your favorite black and white glitter 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.  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.

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
