31 Day Challenge 2014: *14*

I know, I'm a day late... but I promise... I'm not quitting! My spots are gone, and in their place... a lovely FLOWERS throwback to the first nail art I ever did. (And we're throwing really far back... like 90s back...)

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulShine All The Rage
Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow
Sally Hansen White On
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

So... I'm officially a day behind on the 31 Day Challenge. As much as I'd love to rock out two looks in one day... with a little Peanut, it's just not realistic. I'm just going to continue on with the prompts, and hopefully I'll stay just one day behind.

I'm not sure where I got the idea for daisy nails back in the day. Probably because daisies were everywhere in the late 90s. Flower Power, Daisy Crazy and all that... :) Back in the day, I'd draw daisies on my nails using a toothpick. Pretty sure I put them on my toenails a couple of times, too. Given my limited artistic talent, and a general lack of stamping plate kits in the area... I decided to go old school and simple. But I did knock 2 more polishes off the untried list. Can we call that a wash?

The next prompt in the challenge... the one I was supposed to paint last night for today, is a DELICATE PRINT. I'm glad I looked at the prompts again this morning, because I was thinking it was intricate, not delicate, literally, like all weekend long. Not sure where I came up with that one! But I do think my idea for intricate could still work. Fingers crossed!

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
