China Glaze Choo Choo Choose You






Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats China Glaze Choo Choo Choose You
1 Coat Sinful Colors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

There need to be more polishes like this one. Lots more. In all the colors!

So, I have to admit, I passed on this polish twice before finally picking it up yesterday. And when I say "pick up," I mean thanks to the bestest big sister ever, Choo Choo Choose You has chosen a warm and comfortable home in the sparklestash. Much improved living conditions compared to bathing in fluorescence on the bottom shelf at Sally Beauty. O.o

Why didn't I pick it up either of those times? Well, I hadn't seen many swatches, and the fluorescent lights really did nothing for it. Not the first of its kind to fall victim to this problem, certainly (and sadly) not the last.

There's definitely a subtlety in this polish that I just adore! It's got a sheer duochrome base that shifts from a sheer dark bluish-purple to purply-gray. That alone would have made a great polish, but there's more! Specifically, an extra-fine shimmer that flashes red to gold to green, making Choo Choo Choose You a really unique and pretty polish!

I seriously loving how these photos turned out, and loving my nails even more! Before I had it on my nails, I really wasn't sure about all the hype surrounding Choo Choo Choose You. But it's all definitely true... :) So glad I've got an awesome sister who totally enables my polish addiction. A... you're the best!!!

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.
