L'Oreal Bubble Trouble
L'Oreal Bubble Trouble: 1-4 Coats

L'Oreal Bubble Trouble might just be my new favorite light pink polish. The finish on this shade is just incredible. It builds nicely from a super sheer pink to a pretty pastel pink jelly. Bubble Trouble looks to be one of those pinks that will work with any skin tone!

L'Oreal Jolly Lolly
L'Oreal Jolly Lolly: 1-4 Coats

Jolly Lolly by L'Oreal is an interesting polish. On my wheels, it looked pink. On my nails, it looks red. I'm guessing the difference is the fact that the nail wheel is a stark white, whereas my nails have a more pinky/peach base. If you've been looking for a cherry red jelly polish, Jolly Lolly is what you've been searching for! I'm not normally the biggest fan of red polish, but I really like this one!!!

L'Oreal Mango Mamma
L'Oreal Mango Mamma: 1-4 Coats

Mango Mamma from L'Oreal is just that... an INCREDIBLE Mango jelly polish. I'm pretty sure this would match Rita's Mango Italian Ice perfectly! I'm not at all a fan of the color orange, but this is a really pretty shade and finish. Not too sure if it will go with my skin tone... (Just one of many reasons for my general disdain of orange.)

L'Oreal Bananarama Love
L'Oreal Bananarama Love: 1-4 Coats

L'Oreal Bananarama Love might be a dupe for Deborah Lippmann Yellow Brick Road. I don't own Yellow Brick Road to test it against, but I would say the two are pretty close. Bananarama Love might be a shade or two cooler, but it's still a great color with an awesome finish. How much do you love a yellow that doesn't streak?!?

L'Oreal Creme De Mint
L'Oreal Creme de Mint: 1-4 Coats

I'm guessing L'Oreal went with Creme de Mint for their green jelly because of the mint green trend for Spring. I think they could've gone with a dark green jelly (Nars Zulu, anyone?) to balance out Berry Nice, the only dark jelly polish of the bunch. I'm not sure if I like Creme de Mint or not. I'm not thrilled by it, but it does give some different layering possibilities.

L'Oreal Miss Pixie
L'Oreal Miss Pixie: 1-4 Coats

L'Oreal Miss Pixie is a bright blue jelly, similar to Revlon Royal, which I believe has been discontinued. If you missed out on Royal, this is a must have in your collection. It's a pretty bright blue and you can create some really cool layerings with it!

L'Oreal Lilac Coolers
L'Oreal Lilac Coolers: 1-4 Coats

Similar to Bubble Trouble, Lilac Coolers is another pastel jelly in this collection that's not a crelly and not streaky. This shade is ridiculously pretty and goes on very smoothly. Lilac Coolers would be great for a different take on a French manicure, or used to create a pretty Jelly Glitter Sandwich like this one here.

L'Oreal Berry Nice
L'Oreal Berry Nice: 1-4 Coats

Berry Nice is the lone dark jelly in the Miss Candy Collection. While it seems odd that L'Oreal would throw this in there, Berry Nice isn't all THAT much out of place. It's in the same family of color as Zoya Katherine and Verity Deep Violet, but I don't think it's a dupe for either polish. It's a cool, blue-leaning grape-purple that's just begging to be used in a sparkly layering!

L'Oreal Miss Candy Jelly Polishes

I don't own too many L'Oreal polishes, but the formula on these was excellent. The brush is a bit smaller than the mop-style brush some companies have grown fond of lately. Thankfully, all of my crushes were impeccable without any stray hairs. Application was great... Each polish had a shiny jelly finish at 4 coats. I was actually amazed that for the most part, these polishes weren't streaky AT ALL. Even with just one coat, they seemed to level out not just on my wheels, but on my nails as well.

The price point on these polishes isn't bad... $5.99 retail at CVS or Rite-Aid, and that's before all the coupons and rewards both stores offer. This collection IS Limited Edition, so if you're interested in any of these polishes, don't wait! Jelly collections usually don't stick around too long. I still regret not picking up all of OPI's "Sorbet" polishes from the Texas Collection.

What do you think of the L'Oreal Miss Candy Jellies?!?

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

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon. That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY . This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's? Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones.
