Rainbow Honey Chemical Plant and Sally Hansen You're Crabby

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Sally Hansen You're Crabby
3 Coats Rainbow Honey Chemical Plant
1 Coat Sinful Colors Clear
1 Coat Seche Vite

It's Wednesday and I'm wearing pink again... I swear, I am not trying to make this a thing, really! It just so happened that the two of these were new and unswatched, and they go together so well, don't you think? Me too!

You're Crabby is part of the Sally Hansen Electric Summer Collection, of which I had to purchase all 9 polishes. It's a great set of pastels and they're really nicely pigmented and everything... but I still needed 3 coats of You're Crabby to get the results you see in the pictures. There were definitely still visible streaks at coat 2, but the 3rd one evened everything out nicely.

Chemical Plant is from Rainbow Honey's July mini mystery bag... which I mentioned before, and I'm still pretty sure I'd like to subscribe to it. $25 for a full-sized mystery bag, or $10 for the mini size like I purchased. It came with 2 other polishes the same size as Chemical Plant (5mL), scented cuticle balm, a mini perfume roll-on, and cooling gel in Midori... which is a really yummy honey-dew melonish smelling scent. I know what you're thinking... cuticle lotion that's not lemony? Yep... that's why I like it too! Something different!!! :)

While You're Crabby isn't the most original of pinks... it's a very flattering rosy shade. I imagine this will probably look good on almost anyone. Chemical Plant is a really pretty sheer rose-tinged shell pink with a tiny fucshia and gold shimmer, plus a few random blue sparkles here and there, and some small torn shards of gold glitter. So pretty and so pink... but I'm definitely ready to paint something else on tonight. (surprise, surprise!) Oh, and my nails are begging to be trimmed! I'll be filing down to my regular nubs tonight!!! :)

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

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.
