SinfulColors Sweet Nothing

When I said "no more coral and blue..." that didn't apply to teal, right? Phew. Didn't think so...

Sweet Nothing by SinfulColors

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Sweet Nothing
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Sweet Nothing is one of those polishes my Cybershot just can't seem to photograph correctly. It's teal, I promise! I'm not sure how, but the shutter of my camera ate alllllll the yellow required to properly view this shade.

This manicure is totally one of those lemme pick a random bottle, paint my nails realquicklike, and go to bed. Yep. Three easy coats and off to marshmallowland. I just needed to plug in my phone, and... oops... forgot to pull out the plug in the Otterbox. No problem! I'll just use the end of my glasses, and... there goes the right thumb. It's okay, I'll just de-blanket and fix it... ooof... there went left middle.


So, I removed the polish from those two nails and started over. Ridge Filler, Sweet Nothing, Sweet Nothing, Sweet Nothing, Clear, and Seche. Back in bed, plug in phone... sleeeeeeeep.

Color Correction Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing

Here's my attempt at a color-correct. It's still a little off, but it's as close as I can manage. If you own Bright Pool from Gap... it's almost identical to that, minus the pretty purple shimmer. If you don't own it and want to re-create that look, I'm pretty sure you could top Sweet Nothing with Pink-Grapefruit from Sally Hansen, or NYC Sweet Candy.

Not sure if I'll be sporting Sweet Nothing again tomorrow, or if I'll change my polish after PLL. Decisions, decisions... (...and talk about first world problems!)

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…
