Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Zoya Paloma
2 Coats China Glaze Your Present Required
2 Coats Zoya Paloma
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

This layering was pretty much a given when Paloma arrived... it just took a little while to make it happen! I think I needed to step back from the pink and purple, wear black for almost a week, then come running back to pink with this sparklebomb of a jelly glitter sandwich. And that's exactly what I did. :)

Your Present Required has been begging to be part of a jelly glitter sandwich since I added it to my stash. It's a mix of blue, gold, orange, white, and fuschia glitter in various sizes. I did my best to leave out the huuuge white pieces of glitter, but two of them made it onto my thumb. Thankfully, they don't look as large on my thumb as they would had they landed on my pinky. As much as I love the unique blend of colors in Your Present Required... I like them covered with a layer of raspberry jelly even more!

Two coats of Zoya Paloma over Your Present Required deepened the blue, turned white to light pink, gold to orange, orange to red, and fuschia to lavender. It's this effect that makes me loveLoveLOVE jelly glitter sandwiches soooo much.

Application was great with both polishes... I really can't complain. Paloma was just as easy to apply as her sisters Katherine and Frida. Your Present Required covered pretty well in just one coat, but I  did dab on a second coat to some sparse areas just to even everything out. (Hence the 2 coats listed above.)

What would you layer with Zoya Paloma?

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

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.
