Milani Peri-Wink

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Milani Peri-Wink
1 Coat Sally Hansen Invisible
1 Coat Seche Vite

First things first, I've gotta say... this color just doesn't want to photograph accurately! What looks like a light blue with lavender ambitions in my photos, is actually a gorgeous, glowing periwinkle blue in real life.

Recently, Milani Cosmetics decided to bring all their different polish lines under one umbrella and Milani Color Statement was the result! So far, they've put out their core 36 colors and a Quick Dry Clear Coat which I picked up, but didn't use for whatever reason. I also picked up Ink Spot and Enchanting, but I'm holding off on trying those until I'm in more of an Autumn mood!

Application was great! I probably could've gotten away with just 2 coats, but I thought I saw some patchiness on one of my nails, so everyone got a 3rd coat. It was late, and I was in a bit of a hurry to paint my nails after an attempt at nail art went very wrong! I was trying to do a striped manicure while binge-watching Doctor Who, and in the end, the Doctor won and my nail art was scrapped!

Anyway... I like this color a lot, but I did think that the shimmer would've shown up on my nails a little better than it did. Thankfully, I bought it for the color and not for the finish! I love that even though Peri-Wink is a pastel, it's a bright pastel, so it still works for summer. I'm not ready to go vampy quite yet. Soon, though!

Have you tried any of the new Milani shades?

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.

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
