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?

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

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put
