I don't normally try to wear pink on Wednesdays. Usually, it just happens. In the interest of full disclosure, I took these pictures yesterday, but didn't get around to posting them until today. Fear not, I still have this lovely color on my nubs. I've actually been wearing this mani since SUNDAY! I know... 4 days is SUCH a record for me. On Monday, I managed to pinch a nerve in my neck. But not just any nerve, that especially lovely one that is used for every single movement your neck makes, and then some more!  My Monday night mani was scratched in hopes that it would feel better on Tuesday...

...and. It. Felt. Worse.

So... Tuesday night mani was cancelled, too. In its place, a generous helping of Icy Hot was applied to my neck. Once I smelled like quite the odiferous panda snack, I went to bed.

It definitely feels better today, but I'm not 100% recovered. Still some zingers when I move certain ways, but better enough that tonight's mani is totally gonna happen. YAAAAAAAY!

Enough about me, though... let's talk about this pink polish from NYC that I got at Dollar Tree. It came in a blister pack with NYC Demon Glow for $1. I totally realized upon arriving home that I don't own a black light, nor do I frequent any places which do... So.........

Faithful Fuchsia! It's a really gorgeous bright pink, and I'd be lying if I didn't say that I pawed through the packs to find a Demon Glow/Other NYC Polish combo that I liked and knew I'd probably wear. I didn't think I would wear it so soon, but I am a sucker for all things hot pink when it comes to my nails.

Application was awesome. I don't own a whole lot of NYC polishes, and I frequently forget how easily their formula applies. Coverage was amazing, too. Really close to being a one coater, but just not quite there. I did three coats because yet again, I forgot to wrap my tips until I was finished with coat numero dos. I really need to put a reminder post-it on my mani desk. O.o

Sooooo... yeah. Pink for Wednesday, and Pink for the 2nd prompt in Crumpet's 52 Week Pick N Mix Challenge, which I am now even further behind on than last time.  Happy Wednesday!!!

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
