4th time stamping and I'm in LOVE. My decision to purchase the entire 2013 "Create Your Own" Collection from Bundlemonster was based largely on plate BM-418. I had to have it, and it wasn't available on its own. It needed to bring along 25 friends? Suuuuure... why not? The more the merrier, right?!? Thing is, without ordering the entire collection, I'm not sure that I would've purchased BM-416 OR BM-414. And look how well they all play together?

I didn't have issues with any of these plates, and I'm still using the stamper I got in my Fing'rs set from the World O' Wally. I am using a plastic gift card as my scraper, but that seems to la method du jour, n'est ce pas?

I seriously loooooove how this manicure turned out. Prosecco was just begging for a little bit of grunge. I answered with a lot, and then some! Paint splatters, swirls, fingerprints, radioactive and toxic symbols mixed with a little chaos and then topped with some more shimmer. (Because there's really no such thing as "enough" glitter.) I chose the pinkish/purple shimmer in Sweet Candy to add more sparkle and help balance out all that radioactivity. I especially like how the shimmer is practically non-existent over Prosecco, but really pops over Black on Black.

...and that attempt at a gradient? I don't hate it, but I don't really love it, either. It was actually supposed to be a gradient using SinfulColors Black on Black AND Secret Admirer, but I went a little overboard and all traces of Prosecco disappeared. Oops. Sooooooo... I painted on two coats of Sweet Candy, and followed with a black gradient on my tips. Done and done.

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.
