Layering: Milkie Fish Shards

Yeah... not the most appetizing name for a layering, but it ties in sooooo nicely, and I'm only a week late for Shark Week! Did you celebrate by eating shark? Mr. Sparkle did, and he let me have a bite. (I'm here all week, folks!) Not bad, but I still prefer swordfish! On to the pics...

Polishes Used:

Yesterday's Mani
2 Coats Fingerpaints Fishin' for Fun
1 Coat Butter London Rosie Lee
1 Coat Fingerpaints Fishin' for Fun
2 Coats Wet n Wild megalast 2% Milk
1 Coat Confetti Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

This is one Crelly Glitter Sandwich that turned out nicely! It's pink, pink, and pink with a side of pink, and a little smidge of pink on the top. But it's not overdone.

Fishin' for Fun has been sitting in my helmer since I bought it. I picked it up with Are You Hoppy, earlier this year and completely forgot about them my house elf stole them for his nest. (Don't get me started on that hairtie FIEND.) I'm not sure if I thought application would be problematic, but I held off on trying it for whatever reason, until now. The polish is brimming with rose and fuchsia colored glitter shards... No fishin' necessary!

Rosie Lee was another untried polish sitting in my Helmer, begging to be used. The light rosy pink matched Fishin' for Fun perfectly, and added contrast to the big glitter shards. Two coats of 2% Milk went over all the glitter, and made the base a more noticeable pink.

I'm not sure if you can see in the pictures, but I do have a tiny piece of glitter sticking up on almost every nail. I thought one coat of clear, followed by one coat of Seche Vite would be enough, but I should've done another coat or two to smooth the glitter out. No worries. One of these days, I will get around to picking up Gelous. Swear.

Now that I've tried Fishin' for Fun, I want glitter shards in all.the.colors. Because that's just how I am. There's never enough glitter. Never.

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.

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

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put
