OPI Paint my Moji-Toes Red

Today's manicure is a simple one thanks to a cold I'm battling. (achoo!) It's my favorite shade of red, one of the first OPI polishes my sister bought me, and one of the few polish bottles in my collection that shows noticeable use! Paint my Moji-Toes Red...

Paint my Moji-Toes* Red is from OPI's 2009 South Beach Collection, that year's spring/summer collection. It's very fitting, too. I definitely reach for this more in spring and summer than the other seasons. I've painted it on my hands and toes a LOT over the past 4 years. I've yet to add polish thinner to this bottle.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats OPI Paint my Moji-Toes Red
1 Coat OPI Top Coat
1 Coat Essie Good to Go

So what makes Paint my Moji-Toes Red my FAVORITE red? Well, it's not an in-your-face red. It's a faded poppy red creme polish that goes really well with my skin tone. Did I mention that it's not like some other garish reds that just jump off your nails? Red polish can be intimidating... Paint my Moji-Toes Red melds that intimidating factor into my look seamlessly, instead of just scaring me away from the bottle.


What's your favorite red polish?


*In all honesty, this shade reminds me more of Toma-Toes than Moji-Toes... And now I'm hungry for a tomato sandwich. Yup. You read that correctly. Tomato, salt, pepper, mayo, and bread. YUM!

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.
