You know, if Radiant Orchid wouldn't have been picked as Pantone's color of the year... I think I would've overlooked Perrie. But I was on the hunt for an orchidy lacquer, and Perrie fit the bill...


Yes, I just totally went there! Might I add that my 1 year old thinks I'm hilarious and laughs at all my jokes?!? Haha!!! Sorry I'm not sorry, but Agent P is all I can think of when I hear the name Perry(ie). And if you don't know Perry... you might need to google Phineas and Ferb ASAP. (And then watch every episode!)

So, yeah... Zoya Perrie is an awesome way to add a little orchid-hued radiance into your life. Not only is a great shade right now because of the trendy factor, but it's also one of those colors that you can wear in any season.

Application was awesome. Perrie wasn't a one-coater for me, but it sure was close! I added a second coat because that's just what I tend to do.

On a completely random note, this shade of purple is oddly similar to the purple trim I picked out for my bedroom way back when I was like 7 or 8. Oh yes... I was color forecasting waaaaay back then! (Hahahahaha... No. Not really.) This rosy-violet color is so pretty... but am I done searching for Radiant Orchid polishes? Probably not. This is me we're talking about... :) 

Do you have any Radiant Orchid-like polishes in your collection? Share, share, por favour!!!

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.

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…

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. I ma…
