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.

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…

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…

Zoya Free4You Promotion

It's Zoya promotion time again! This is one sale that I just have to jump on every year. Usually, it's because I try to do a no-buy around the Holidays and I'm just itching to buy all of the polish. I didn't really set out specifically to do that in 2015, but that's how it ended up. So I was pretty excited to get the email about Zoya's one week only Free4You sale!

The premise of the sale is simple, choose 4 Zoya shades, (excluding pre-packaged sets, Naked Manicure, Zoya Treatments, and the Spring 2016 Whispers Collection) enter 4YOU at checkout, and pay just $15 promotional shipping. That's the equivalent of $3.75/bottle with free shipping. Zoya polishes normally retail for $9-$10/bottle, so this is a pretty sweet promotion!

Now I know you're wondering... what shades did I pick out? I thought you'd never ask! I swear, I didn't set out to only order purple and blue polishes. And I know that exactly none of these were on my Lemmings list! That see…
