Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Zoya Frida
2 Coats Spinoff (franken)
1 Coat Zoya Frida
1 Coat Borghese Clearcoat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I've been drooling over this shade for a very long time. Thanks to Zoya's recent Color Your World promotion, it is now a member of the Stash. Originally released in Fall 2012, Frida is one-third of Zoya's NYFW Gloss Collection. Paloma and Katherine are her sisters, and I'm glad I finally own all three! (Dear Zoya, please make more. LOTS more. Like, in every color and shade of the rainbow. Thanks! <3 S.)

Frida is a blue teal jelly polish. It's sheer. Really sheer, but that's the point. I'm pretty sure these were made for jelly glitter sandwich addicts like myself.

Zoya polishes are always awesome to work with. Really, I've yet to come across a problematic Zoya! The formula is great, and when it comes to jellies, they've got the perfect amount of sheerness. Seriously... not too sheer that you need a million layers, but not too opaque either.

Spinoff is a frankenpolish I created a little while back. I used it in my Lilac Coolers layering, but I don't think that I ever picked it up again. It's a mix of a bunch of different glitters from my stash. I know that it contains Orly Peaceful Opposition because of the silver square glitter, but I'm a little foggy on the exact recipe. It's been a while. O.o

How would you layer Frida?

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
