Hard Candy Gummy Green

I've been in JellyLand for the past couple days, so I thought I'd switch it up a little bit...

Hard Candy Gummy Green

Gummy Green is one of the brand-new Hard Candy polishes that came out this spring. It's part of the Candy Sprinkles collection... 9 different polishes with a finish that's supposed to (and does) look like sprinkles on icing. (Essentially a cupcake manicure all in one bottle.)

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Hard Candy Gummy Green
1 Coat OPI Top Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I have to admit, I like that this manicure all came from one bottle. Layering manicures aren't for everyone, and this line of polishes give you a look that says complicated without all the effort! That being said, application was NOT flawless.

Hard Candy Gummy Green is LOADED with small glitter. Because the polish is so overloaded with glitter, it tends to be a bit goopy while applying. Also, the glitter does make the finish slightly bumpy. Even with a coat of top coat, I can see and feel the bumps of the glitter. I'd probably go with another coat or two of clear to really seal in the glitter next time.

Even with the slightly problematic formula... this is a look I love! It combines the cupcake nail trend with mint... Spring's must-have color. Gummy Green is totally uber-trendy. Hard Candy polishes are only available at Wal*Mart, and retail for $4 a bottle.

Do you own any Candy Sprinkles polishes from Hard Candy?

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. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite 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

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
