SinfulColors Folly Accent Manicure

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Folly
Spoiled Champagne Siren (accent)
SinfulColors Queen of Beauty (accent)
OPI Gaining Mole-mentum (accent)
SOPI Flurry Up! (accent)
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I've come to realize that I probably have a good 40 or 50 shades of hot and bright pink that slightly vary from one another. But they're all different, so they're all totally neccessary. This one... Folly from SinfulColors is a very close-to-red shade of raspberry pink. A raspberry almost-red with tiny little pink sparkles in it. I'm not sure you can see them in my pictures, and you definitely can't see them when you look at the bottle. But I swear, they're there, and aren't sparkles always a good surprise? (yes. yes they are!)

Application was great... SinfulColors polishes are pretty consistent for me, and the brush is standard sized. Folly had an almost jellyish look to it while I applied it, but it's definitely a creme finish when it dries. It's a really pretty shade, but they could totally amp up the sparkle factor and I'd be more than okay with that!

For my accent nail... I had intended to layer Spoiled Champagne Siren and SOPI The Gilded Age, but I couldn't find my bottle of The Gilded Age anywhere. I swear, my gremlins have a thing for hair ties and nail polish... o.O

ANYWAY...

I started out with 2 coats of Champagne Siren and added Gaining Mole-mentum from OPI... but it didn't really stand out that much from the fine gold glitter of Champagne Siren. So, I added 2 (I think) coats of Flurry Up for some silver contrast. Then I added a coat or two of Queen of Beauty in between a coat or two of Champagne Siren. That created a silvery gold brocade finish. This is definitely my preferred method of dealing with the brashness of gold glitter. A little silver makes it so much more wearable, and that's coming from a person who is legit obsessed with glitter and all the things that sparkle. :D

What do you think of Folly?

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…
