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!!!

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.

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 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
