Fangirl Friday: 8.30.13


1. This polish went straight to my wishlist thee second I saw it on Nail Polish Wars. The purple flaky gorgeousness that is The Uptown needs to be mine...

c/o Nail Polish Wars

Polishes like this that just gloooow... Love.Them. I need more like this STAT!

2. September is just two days away, and I've been on the hunt for Fall polish collection for 2 weeks, now! YIKES! Where did this summer go? I've seriously been stalking the local drugstores for the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Rent the Runway collection. I'm also on the lookout for Pumpkin Polishes at RiteAid, Wet 'n Wild Tombstone polishes, the NYC Hero Collection, and the Fingerpaints Au Pair Collection. So, of course, when I went to WalMart yesterday, I happened upon 9 new Hard Candy polishes, instead. Go fig.

3. Ummm... Pretty Little Liars crazy reveAls anyone? Everyone and their mom saw CeCe Drake as Red Coat coming, but Ezra? Really?!? I'm glad I'm not too far into re-watching, because I need to start all over again from the top. And take notes. :)

In case you missed it, or just want to relive all the action over again, check out my recap here. I promise I'll be posting thoughts and theories soon!

4. I haven't pinned a lot of recipes lately, but I really want to try this one. It has a couple of my faves in it, so it has to be superyummy, right?

c/o Nat the Fat Rat
Just look at it. Even from inside my monitor, it's begging to be devoured. I get major foodie envy when I read Nat the Fat Rat. Likeallthetime. It makes me crave daytime at night, concrete sidewalks for days, and all. And that's saying awholelot considering my love for squishing grass between my toes.

5. If I'm having a bad day, need a laugh, or a distraction... there's a ton of funnies on the Berry. It's basically Chive4Girls. :)

Mr. Sparkle has been a Chiver for a while now, and that's how I found their sister site The Berry.

And this...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one. I have to admit, I was kind of excited to move earlier this summer, because I was sure I'd find a ton upon a TON of hairties. I found two. TWO! Damn house elf.

Me & Inkiphone II. missyou.
That's what I'm fangirling this week. How 'bout you?

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.
