SinfulColors Curry Up

This is one of those shades that I bought more for the finish than the color... and ended up loving the color now that I'm wearing it! It's definitely a different shade... but different in a really good way!

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats SinfulColors Curry Up
1 Coat Confetti Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

First of all, let me start by saying that my photos are nawt color accurate. Curry Up leans way more yellow than what you see in my pics. It's honestly very close to Shrek green. Yep... yellowy-lime and sort of snotty at the same time. This polish shimmers thanks to super-fine irridescent blue glitter, with fine coppery-pink glitter sprinkled in. If I had to guess, I'd say that it's an attempt at rose gold glitter.

Rose gold is super trendy right now. As far as a nail polish goes... I don't know that anyone has really duplicated the exact shade. Most of the glitter versions I've seen either lean too pink or too orange. What's interesting about Curry Up though, is the way the coppery-pink glitter comes across. It's not overly bright, but it doesn't disappear entirely either. It reminds me of when you put pepper in soup. A little bit of it dissolves and blends into the broth, but you can still tell it's there.

Was this effect planned? Honestly, I don't know... but I haven't seen any other polishes like it. On one hand... it reminds me of flecked spraypaint on a smaller, more demure level. On the other hand... it could be that the coppery-pink glitter didn't mix as originally intended. Either way... Curry Up is a super unique and different nail polish that you probably want to pick up while it's still around!

Now, as far as the formula goes... the amount of shimmer and glitter in here just might have overloaded the base polish. Curry Up was gloopy on application with every. single. coat. My nails were still a bit patchy at 3 coats, so I painted on the 4th... and things were still a little iffy. Thankfully, after a coat of clear and Seche Vite, everything evened out.

The more I wear Curry Up... the more I like it. I really wasn't sure about this shade of green at all when I bought it, and I've contemplated painting it on my nails more than a few times. I guess in the end, it's kind of like what they say about not judging a book by its cover... Don't judge a polish until you've swatched it!

Would you wear Curry Up?

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.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite 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 c

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 ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite 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

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.
