SinfulColors Island Coral

Is it a bad thing that I have no idea where or when I bought this? I just plucked it out of my Helmer last night and realized that I've never worn it. (Along with probably another 100 or so polishes in the sparkle stash. Shhhhh... don't tell!) Island Coral... here's your day in the sun! (...in spite of this rain that came out of NOWHERE.)

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats SinfulColors Island Coral
1 Coat Color Club Top Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

So, I'm honestly surprised that I haven't worn this color until now! But that's what having so many bottles of polish will do to you. It's also the downside of storing your polish in a Helmer. The bottles aren't out in plain sight, so it's easy to get excited by shinier, newer acquisitions and completely forget about polishes like Island Coral!

So good news, this is part of SinfulColors Core Collection, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding it at Walgreens or Rite Aid. Coral is one of my favorite colors, period, but I really enjoy wearing it during Spring and Summer with white, navy, or khaki green. I'm pretty sure I could spend all summer living in combos of those colors... BUT... I digress.

Island Coral. If you don't have it in your collection, you need it. It doesn't matter if you've been looking for a coral or not. Application was great... four easy coats and some clear to make it shine, shine, shine! This is such a pretty shade, and I got so many compliments while wearing it today... I'm considering wearing it tomorrow, too!

What do you think of Island Coral?

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…
