Fangirl Friday: 8.16.13

1. Michelle Mismas from All Lacquered Up knows her nail polish. She's been blogging for over 5 years, and if you've ever searched for swatches, you've seen her nails. She collaborated with Rescue Beauty Lounge for their first Blogger Collection in 2009, creating Mismas, a non-existant purple polish she had been lemming. Recently, Michelle was approached by Sally Beauty, the makers of Fingerpaints, to collaborate on an ENTIRE collection. If that isn't cool enough, she just blogged about the experience, which is an incredible look at the creative process from conception to completion.

2. You know how celebrities are always spotted in crazy expensive basic tee shirts that look ohsocomfortable? I'm totally with Macklemore that some brands just aren't worth shelling out the cash to cover the price tag. BUT... If you're looking for super comfortable, stylish, AND affordable tee shirts... you need to check out Threads 4 Thought. Basic tees and tanks for women start at $10 a pop.

Do they sell more expensive items? Sure. But most of their stuff is incredibly affordable, AND I've found Threads 4 Thought at TJ Maxx and Marshall's at great prices. Did I mention that their clothes are also Sustainable? Totally recycled, comfy, stylish, affordable, and vintage soft. Plus, if your shirts make you claw your neck raw, these tees (and most of their tops) are little tagless wonders. Let them hug you. You'll like it, I promise. :)

No scratchies here.

3. This little face...

It's her newest, and funniest face yet! It cracks me up every time.

4. This trick...

She was SO proud of herself, the first time she did this, smiling from ear-to-ear! Now, she pulls the bib over the head if it has a snap, but if it's a velcro bib? Well, she just rips those right off! 

5. So, after watching The Mirror Has Three Faces, I've decided I must watch every episode of Pretty Little Liars again... and maybe again after that! Luckily, Seasons 1-3 are streaming on Netflix. Woohoo!

Here's to dreaming about Ali & Co. for another couple of nights. I can't say that I'm having any more luck finding A or Red Coat in my dreamschemes than the girls are on the show. If you aren't watching... you totally should be! Please, make me feel better about my addiction... (watchWatchWATCH!!!)

I'm a fangirl. Are you?

What are you a shameless Fangirl of this week?!?

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.
