31 Day Challenge 2014: *30*

My supernatural nails have gone the way of the Daleks! For the penultimate prompt of the 31 Day Challenge, participants were asked to create nails inspired by A TUTORIAL...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Sinful Colors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Sinful Colors Blue La La
1 Coat Sinful Colors Clear Coat

During this challenge, I've certainly pushed the limits of what I normally do with my nails. Sometimes, it didn't work out, but for the most part, it's really expanded my skills. This particular technique is just one of many I could've featured. I figured I'd highlight this one, because, before the #31DC2014, I had yet to try a cling wrap manicure! My first attempt was with my Uglies inspired manicure for Day 24, and then again for the base of my Pattern Nails for Day 26. I used this tutorial in order to learn exactly how to execute a cling wrap mani.

I like the fact that this manicure is simple, but looks like it took a lot of care and precision to create. It really doesn't. If you can paint your nails and dab them with cling wrap, you can totally re-create this look!

That's it for now folks! Happy Friday to you all, and I hope you have a GREAT weekend! Tomorrow, I'll be posting the last prompt from the 31 Day Challenge... HONOR NAILS YOU LOVE!!!

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…

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…

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.
