5 Things: April 2013


See my teeth?!?

Must. Bite. All. The. Things.

1. Peanut is getting teeth... the bottom front two, to be exact. Who's the first person she tested those teeth on? That would be me. Who does she think she is? Renesmee?!? Um, No. Just... No. Thankfully she hasn't bitten anyone else. Yet.


2. I have an unhealthy obsession with this little Sackboy from Little Big Planet. If you've got a PS3 and you haven't played... you have NO IDEA what you're missing! Get Little Big Planet 1, 2, and Karting... you won't regret it! I have issues with playing video games. I'm great at solving puzzles using strategy and logic, but first person shooters? I always end up stuck in a corner... This game is perfect for uncoordinated gamers like me! 

3. I'm a certified klutz. And a half. I run into walls when I'm going around corners. I constantly am banging limbs on my desk at work and on things around Chez Sparkle. I'm not quite sure what it is...

4. Jelly. Nail. Polish. Especially this collection of Jelly polishes from L'Oreal.

5. Much like Garfield, my favorite food is lasagna. If you don't know who Garfield is, you either live under a rock, or I'm really old. (I'm going with the rock one.) My favorite way to make it (So Far, anyway. I'm always up for trying new lasagnas!) is with arrabiata sauce, ground turkey, ground hot italian sausage, and a TON of garlic. Yum. (And now I'm hungry for lasagna.)

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.
