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!!!

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.

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…

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...

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 then add in some shimmer and glitter.
