HNB2014: Week 2

I survived one full week! In all honesty, though... the Holiday No Buy  is easy at first. It gets harder the longer you go along! There hasn't been too much tempting me this Fall. That could be a good thing, or it could mean that I'll get pounded with lemmings once all the holiday collections debut! I haven't even added that many polishes to my wishlist in the past week...

KBShimmer Kringle All The Way
KBShimmer Let's Sleigh Together
KBShimmer Mauve on Over
OPI Christmas Gone Plaid
OPI First Class Desires
Serum No 5 Work Hard Play Hard (which sold out really quickly!) 

Last week's leftovers have been added to my polish fund... $12.75! My 12 Treats Fund is now at a whopping $17.22 and growing! It's progress and I'll take it!!!

Whilst shopping, I got the cutest little shirt for Peanut, and I need a matching tunic, STAT! Or a scarf...

I got her some pants, too... because her pants seem to disappear just as readily as all the socks and my hairties. Have I told you about my house elf with 14 ponytails and a nest of socks and pants? Because I totally have one... I just haven't seen it in a while and it doesn't come when called... O.o 

Other than that, I was pretty good! I bought some popcorn for snacks, and some snackage for the Halloween party at Peanut's school. Oh, and some grape tic-tacs because I'm soooo addicted. But yeah... so far, so good!

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
