Sephora By OPI It's All About Me

I've finally found my purrrrrrrfect pink. No really, this time, I swear I did. I know I've said the same thing the past 9 times... but this... thiiiiiis is thee one. (Seriously!) Presenting... It's All About Me!

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Sephora By OPI It's All About Me
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I purchased this polish at Big Lots, while they still had a decent stock of SOPI polishes. There were a good deal of these in stock for a little while, but they definitely went fast. What can you really expect? Mark down a $9 bottle of polish to under 2 bucks and it does funny things to us polishaholics! I picked this up and put it down so many times, thinking that it had to be a dupe for a polish I already owned. But, you know me, I finally broke down and brought it home to meet the rest of the stash. I needed something bright on my nails after so much pastel this past week, and It's All About Me was just begging to be used from inside its shrinkwrap.

Can I just say now, that I regret not buying every.single.bottle?

The finish on this really surprised me. It's not as much of a jelly finish like Do You Think I'm Tex-Y? from OPI... but it's also not a creme finish like OPI Conquist-adorable Color. It's a similar raspberry pink shade with a finish that isn't jelly, but it's not what I would consider to be a crelly finish, either. I think my VNL is a bit more visible with It's All About Me than your average crelly. You guys... I was sooooo surprised by this polish, and I love a good, unexpected surprise.

The formula was great... very easy to apply, and it went on evenly. I probably could've gotten away with 2 coats, but I went for 3 because I love a good, solid coating o' polish on my nails. I also wanted to make sure the finish would end up how I thought it would... and it totally did! So, yaaaaaaay for the little things, right? :)

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…

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 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.
