Wet n Wild Sea Change

Here's another polish from the Wet n Wild megalast Collection... an awesome blackened teal shimmer for fall, Sea Change.

I almost didn't pick up this polish. I had a bad feeling about it when I was holding the bottle, but I took it home anyway. I don't really have a blackened teal shimmer in my collection, let alone one with shimmer that flashes from teal, to blue, to purple. Check the bottle shot again... The purple is totally there, right?

I swear, it's there!

But no matter how many different ways I contorted my digits... The purple shimmer just did not want to come out and play. In person OR in the photos. Did it evaporate into thin air between the bottle and my nails? We might never know... Oo

Honestly, I suspected this might happen. The first time I noticed the purple shimmer in the bottle was when I held it upside down, and it was faint. I had a feeling it might not translate to my nails, but I decided that didn't really matter. I honestly like the color of the polish the way it is. I would like it a lot more if that purple shimmer translated to my nails properly, but STILL. It's pretty, right? I think so. :)

Sea Change is another exclusive-to-Dollar-General Wet n Wild megalast polish. Each bottle retails for $2 a pop.

What do you think of Sea Change?

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.
