Wet n Wild Temptation

Okay... so I realize I might be in a rut. Coral, blue, coral, blue, coral, blue... sheesh! I promise, I wear more colors than blue and coral. I've been gravitating towards them sooooo much lately and it's not even officially summer yet! Promise, promise, the next NOTD will be neither coral or blue! Until then though, I've found another coral that you might want to add to your stash while it's available...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Wet n Wild Temptation
1 Coat Sinful Colors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

When I picked up a bunch of Sinful Colors polishes last Sunday... I also picked up this lone little bottle from Wet n Wild. It's the 2nd polish I've bought from the Limited Edition 2014 Street Art Collection. I just couldn't resist adding another coral to my stash, and I definitely don't have a neon one!

Formula-wise... this polish is great. It went on streaky as anything at first, but self-leveled with each coat and completely evened out by the 3rd. I'm thinking that it probably could be a two-coater, but I was painting in a tres, tres humid environment. C'est la vie, n'est pas?

So, do you really need Temptation if you already own a coral polish? For me, this was a definite yes, because I didn't have a neon coral in my collection. Temptation is pinker and lighter than Sinful Colors Coral Riff, and lacks that signature SC shimmer. It's a darker shade of coral than Sinful Colors Island Coral, and way brighter. (NEON!) Compared to Wet n Wild Love Me Some Muscles, it's not only waaaaay more of a darker coral, it leans more pink, is brighter, and completely opaque. So there... argument made!

Have you picked up any polishes from the Street Art Collection?

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…
