Orly Naked Canvas

Over the weekend, I stopped at Sally Beauty Supply to pick up some nail polish remover, and found the Orly Blush Collection. I had seen swatches of this collection recently, so recently in fact, that my picks didn't even make it to my wishlist before I purchased them! Take a look...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Orly Naked Canvas
1 Coat Color Club Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Naked Canvas is a cream colored polish with a superfine (almost hidden) purple shimmer. It's incredibly subtle, and didn't show up too well in my photos, but it's there! Promise!!!

Honestly, I wasn't too sure what to expect when I brought Naked Canvas home. I've bought other creams and whites only to end up disappointed and streaky. Not this time... although it wasn't until the 4th coat that everything evened out.  But once it did? Totally worth it! I did have some issues with bubbling, but only on my left hand, so I can't really attribute it to the polish... and I was in a little bit of a hurry last night... :)

I'm usually not too big on neutral polishes, but I really like this one. The subtle shimmer is different and adds freshness to Naked Canvas. Sure, it fits in great with all the other pastels out right now... but I can definitely see myself wearing this during other seasons, too!

What do you think of Naked Canvas?

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…

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…
