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?

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…
