Layering: L'Oreal Bubble Trouble

Here's a layering I did using L'Oreal Bubble Trouble... (from the Miss Candy collection) or as I like to call it... Malibu Stacy: The Pastel Edition*.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats L'Oreal Bubble Trouble
1 Coat Revlon Sparking
1 Coat SOPI Indi-Go With the Flow
1 Coat SOPI Sugar Plum Faeries Gone Wild
1 Coat L'Oreal Bubble Trouble
1 Coat OPI Top Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

This manicure is so incredibly girly that it's not even funny! And I LOVE IT!!! Bubble Trouble is part of the Miss Candy Collection from L'Oreal... a pretty pink pastel jelly polish. I couldn't just paint Bubble Trouble on my nails and be done with it, though... It was begging to be turned into a Jelly Glitter Sandwich.

Soooooo, I painted on a coat of Revlon Sparkling... fine and chunky pink glitter with decent coverage.

Then, I added Indi-Go with the Flow to my nails, thinking I'd do a sort of reverse Revlon Whimsical/Deborah Lippman Up in the Air sort of thing.

Shiiiiiny... but I couldn't stop there!

1 Coat of SOPI Sugar Plum Faeries Gone Wild pushed this mani right over the edge into glitter OVERLOAD! I topped it with one coat of Bubble Trouble to finish out the sandwich, painted on OPI Top Coat for shine, and sealed the whole thing up with Seche Vite.

This might be a complete glitterbomb of a layering, but I really like it. If I would do it again, I'd probably skip the coat of Indi-Go with the Flow. Bubble Trouble turned it into a really pretty lavender shade that's almost identical to Sugar Plum Faeries Gone Wild. Ah, well. Live and learn, right?

How would you layer Bubble Trouble?!?

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…

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…
