SinfulShine Prosecco

Every now and then, a nail polish comes along that captures the attention of the blogosphere. It's not even necessarily relegated to just nail blogs. Beauty and fashion bloggers alike sometimes jump in on the craze too. For Fall 2014... that polish is Prosecco by Sinful Shine. Behold! (hey, I haven't said that in a while...!)

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulShine Prosecco
1 Coat Color Club Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

So, I know you're wondering... what's so special about Prosecco? Is it the slightly purple leaning, grayish, tan? The super-fine shimmer that packs mainly gold but also flashes copper and green? Combine those and add in the fact that this shade is so flattering to a wide variety of skintones, and we've got a winner, winner, chicken dinner!

When it comes to application, Prosecco is sheer, but builds nicely. I used 3 coats for my swatches, and I probably should've used a 4th. Also, my Seche Vite got a little hungry and decided to eat the edges of my tips on some fingers but not others. Which is weird, because I wrapped all my tips. So... yeah. O.o

I like this shade a lot, but not to the point that I'm keen on keeping it on any longer than normal. I've gotta admit, that's kind of disappointing. Normally, when a shade is this sought after and I acquire it, I want to enjoy it for a while! Definitely the case with SinfulColors Cinderella... not so much with Prosecco. But I do think it will make a great base for glitter, nail art, or possibly stamping. So... there's that, I suppose!

What do you think of Prosecco? Does it live up to the hype?!?

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
