31 Day Challenge 2014: *17*

Gone are the angles and lines of my geometric mani... and in their place? Some sparkle, a dash of flakies, a little jelly, and glitter, Glitter, GLITTER!!!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coats Sally Hansen Purple Pizazz
1 Coat SOPI Indi-Go With The Flow
1 Coat Sally Girl In Love
1 Coat L.A. Girl Provocative
1 Coat Fingerpaints Twisted
1 Coat SOPI Sugar Plum Fairies Gone Wild

2 Coats Fingerpaints Twisted

Thank goodness there's no limit on layering for a Jelly Glitter Sandwich. Because honestly, where would I be if there were? Certainly in a place with a whole lot less sparkle, that's for sure! Technically, if you don't count the glitter in Purple Pizazz, I only used 5 coats of glitter. That's not bad, right? I'm pretty sure I've used more in the past for other sandwiches........ O.o

Purple Pizazz is one of my faaaaavorite jellies to make sandwiches with. Sally Hansen could make a collection of jellies exactly like it, and I'd totally buy every single one plus backups. The nail polish world could definitely use more jelly polishes like this... just for the sole purpose of more Jelly Glitter Sandwiches. But I want them in more varying shades! I feel like we constantly get the same jelly shades over and over again. I'd love to see more of a variety, and I can't be alone in that camp.

I'm sad that I have to take this off after just one day of wear... or do I? HALF MOONS are up next, and I could totally use this mani as a springboard for the next one. OR... I could start over fresh as a daisy. Hmmm... Which way will I go? Check back here tomorrow to find out! Oh, and Happy Weekend!!!

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
