Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats L'Oreal Too Dimensional
1 Coat OPI Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I don't own very many textured nail polishes. The ones I do own tend to fall in the same category as Too Dimensional... total glitterbombs! It's a part of L'Oreal's Colour Riche Gold Dust collection that came out a bit before the Holidays. I thought about purchasing a couple of these shades, but so far, this has been the only one I've added to my collection!

Too Dimensional has an indigo base that is packed with small blue and silver hex glitter, plus some superfine green-gold shimmer. There's a lot of sparkle to this one! When sunlight hits it, it radiates glimmer... I honestly don't think it has a bad side. It photographed really well, and I may or may not have gone a little overboard with taking pictures!

Application was good. The polish didn't build up too badly on the brush like some texture polishes tend to do. I probably could've gotten away with just two coats, but I painted on a third to be sure I didn't have bare spots. It's hard for me to tell if I've covered everything when it comes to textured polishes... O.o

The next time I wear this, I definitely want to paint a layer or two of jelly polish over this and change the color around. Or maybe it's time for a slightly gritty jelly glitter sandwich? (Totally to-do listed!)

Do you own any of the L'Oreal Colour Riche Gold Dust polishes?

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.
