I'm not sure what it is about this polish... but I absolutely love it! Pistache by SinfulColors is exactly what its name suggests... a pistachio green. Mint is so trendy right now, and Pistache is a great nod to that trend without overzealously jumping on the bandwagon.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Pistache
1 Coat OPI Top Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Pistache is an awesome green polish... I love the shade, but unfortunately my camera does not. Pistache is a yellow leaning green that just doesn't want to capture correctly. I attempted a color correction on my macro shot, and it's close, but not exact. The Jadite dish below is also a decent color match, so I included it for reference. Be forewarned, Pistache is definitely an opaque cream. Jadite is a good match for color,  but the finish is completely different!!!

If you're a fan of green polish... you need this in your collection! I picked mine up at my local Rite-Aid for $1.99. I actually like this polish so much, I might leave it on for another day or two... I might even pick up another bottle!!! (Can you say Pistache FrankenCrelly?!?)

Have you picked up any polishes from the Buff to Bright collection?

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…

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. I ma…
