Wet n Wild Black Light Party

This spring, Wet n Wild came out with a bunch of new core shades in their megalast collection that are exclusive to Dollar General. I wasn't too sure that my store would have them, but low and behold...

Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Polish at Dollar General

They were there! Shoved into a somewhat dirty corner, but still! No Buy July reeeeally taught me restraint, because out of over 40 new polishes in the megalast collection, I picked up just 3, count them... three polishes!!! 2% Milk (to cross off my wishlist), Sea Change, and Black Light Party. Here's the latter of those... Black Light Party in all its glory!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Wet n Wild megalast Black Light Party
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Such a pretty jelly blurple. Seriously. This has tiny little flecks of gold and pink shimmer to add a little something extra. Black Light Party is really vivid on the nails. In the same vein as Revlon Royal vivid. Now that I think about it, I'm curious what this would look like layered over a white base. Neon? Hmm...

If you're feeling a bit of deja vu looking at these swatches... Well, there's a reason. Remember that Sally Hansen color Purple Pizazz? I'm pretty sure that if this isn't a dead-on dupe, it's pretty close.

These polishes from Wet n Wild feature the Manicurve Pro brush, and you know. I've said before that I don't like it. It's incredibly awkward to paint my nails with because it is sooooo wide. BUT. The curved part is actually growing on me. (I know!) It allows me to get decently close to the bottom edges of my nails without totally flooding my cuticles. That being said, I still think they could trim down the width of these brushes just a smidgey. Pretty Please? The formula is good too. It took 3 coats of Black Light Party to reach a nice streak-free jelly finish.

Wet n Wild polishes retail at most drug stores. Black Light Party is a part of the megalast collection from Wet n Wild, exclusive to Dollar General and just $2 a pop! (yep, that's my wallet you hear cheering in the background.)

Have you picked up any of the new Wet n Wild megalast shades?

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

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
