L'Oreal Mango Mamma vs. OPI Y'All Come Back, Ya Hear?

These 2 orange jellies are definitely not the same... Good news if you love orange polish! (I don't.*)

L'Oreal Mango Mamma vs. OPI Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?

L'Oreal Mango Mamma vs. OPI Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?



Looking at these swatches... It's evident I should've also taken bottle shots of these two! When you compare them that way, they look like they'd be identical. Y'All Come Back, Ya Hear? is from the OPI Texas Sorbet Collection. I'm not a lover of orange, but it was 50% off, and for OPI, that's a steal! Y'All Come Back, Ya Hear? is a cool shade of orange... pumpkin-y orange to be precise.

L'Oreal Mango Mamma is just what its name implies. A Mango-licious Tangerine-ish warm orange that I actually kind of like. I'm not too sure that it would look right with my skin tone, but I love the depth and saturation of Mango Mamma! It would create a beautiful Jelly Glitter Sandwich!

If you were looking to cross one of these polishes off your wish list... I'm sorry to say I can't help with that! These are different enough to warrant owning both. Given the fact that the OPI Sorbets came out in 2011... you'll probably have an easier time picking up Mango Mamma from L'Oreal. L'Oreal polishes are a little less expensive than OPI, too... They retail at $5.99 a bottle, compared to the $8 or so for OPI polishes.

Mango Mamma from L'Oreal is part of the Miss Candy Collection for Spring 2013. Miss Candy is a Limited Edition Collection, so I wouldn't wait too long to track down any of these polishes. Jellies like this won't hang around forever!


Which polish from the Miss Candy Collection are you looking forward to most?!?

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.
