Layering: L'Oreal Mango Mamma

WOW, am I conflicted. On one hand... I LOVE how this layering turned out. I love the pictures I took. I love that the glitter inside of this jelly sandwich turned the colors I thought it would. Now if only I liked orange... (This one's for all you orange lovers out there!)

I really do like this layering... and that's saying a lot, considering my disdain for all things orange near my olive-toned skin. Seriously though, I had a vision in mind when I started this layering, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Jelly polishes can be fickle... sometimes they layer how you want them to, and other times they do strange things to the glitters they're layered with. In this case, Mango Mamma from L'Oreal played nicely with the glitter polishes I picked!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats L'Oreal Mango Mamma
1 Coat Revlon Sparkling
1 Coat SOPI Flurry Up!
2 Coats L.A. Girl Provocative
2 Coats L'Oreal Mango Mamma
1 Coat OPI Top Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

12 Coats of polish might seem like a lot, but it's really not. Trust me! The end result is totally worth each and every coat!

My thought with this layering was to include glitter inside the sandwich that would register as different shades of orange. Sparkling by Revlon is a light pink glitter, while Provocative from L.A. Girl is a fuchsia glitter. SOPI Flurry Up! is your standard silver glitter polish. With Mango Mamma layered on top, the glitters morphed into Orange-Gold, Tangerine, and Red-Orange. Incredibly pretty and soooo much depth to this layering! I really wish I liked orange more, because I might be tempted to keep this on longer than just a day... :)

How would you layer Mango Mamma?

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…

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…

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.
