Wet n Wild Trippin' on the Boardwalk

If you've held off on purchasing a Radiant Orchid shade of polish... this is definitely one to add to your stash! It's a bright, summery take on the Pantone Color of the Year! Oh, and these photos were taken with my iPhone, because Trippin' on the Boardwalk is simply too awesome for my Cybershot to handle... :)

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Wet n Wild Trippin' on the Boardwalk
1 Coat Color Club Top Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Trippin' on the Boardwalk is another polish from the Wet n Wild All Access Beauty Collection. It's the purple of the bunch, super-bright and such a great color for summer! The brightness of it makes it glow on my nails... kind of how a flower glows when it's bathed in warm summer sun...

All the polishes in this collection have Wet n Wild's Manicurve Pro Brush, and Trippin' on the Boardwalk was no exception. Although it did have a couple of wonky hairs that I'm going to have to trim. Not the biggest of deals, you know? Application was great... very similar to Love Me Some Muscles. This is a nicely pigmented, yet sheer shade, so 4 coats were definitely necessary. Looking at my photos, I'd probably go back and do a 5th, because there are a couple of more sheer patches, but they're not that incredibly noticeable.

Definitely another winning polish from Wet n Wild... I'm seriously all about this finish! Jelly and creamy all at the same time = Lurve.

Have you spotted Trippin' on the Boardwalk in the wild?

  1. YES! I loved this so much I bought three bottles:). Nicole from Young, Wild and Polished says this reminds her of Sation Tardy Tart, but that "nothing could really compare to her beloved Tardy Tart!" I came too late into the polish game to ever get my hands on it:(. If you have it, can you do a comparison? I agree with you that this is a MUST.HAVE for summer! Love!

  2. I actually don't have any Sation polishes... Tardy Tart looks gorgeous, though! Thanks for commenting!!!

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…
