I stopped by my local Rite-Aid on the way home yesterday, and I found a bunch of new SinfulColors polishes... I had heard the displays were spotted at Walgreens, so I wasn't really looking for them, I just sort of happened upon them! I needed more cotton balls, and low and behold... 5 bottles of polish just hopped into my hands. Coral Riff was one of them... (and yes, I did remember the cotton balls!)

Coral Riff is part of SinfulColors Simmer Down Collection, and on the display, they're described as a "simmering sands collection." A fitting name, given the fact that it's a collection of warm-toned polishes! I'm always on the lookout for new and different corals, so Coral Riff caught my eye. It leans a little bit more towards the tomatoey red/orange side of coral. The color would be gorgeous on its own, but SinfulColors didn't stop there. They added a generous helping of superfine blue-violet shimmer, taking Coral Riff to a whole new level.

Application was great... Coral Riff actually has a slightly jelly finish to it, and even with 3 coats, I can see a little bit of VNL in person, but I don't think it really translated in my photos. Between the jelly finish and hidden sparkle... Coral Riff was one big happy surprise!

Have you picked up any of the new SinfulColors polishes yet?

  1. OMG! I have been on the hunt for this color! And I found it! This must be one popular color in the SF Bay Area 'cuz on my fourth try I found THE last bottle at Walgreen's :) It's a beautiful color! I have been obsessed with finding a coral with blue-violet shimmer! Yippee! The first time I tried coral was about five years ago. It was a nameless brand color I picked out at my nail place and believe it or not... Yes, it's true, I've been on the hunt for this very color since then. I lo and behold... I found it! Nice swatting, by the way. Thanks!

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.
