SinfulColors Twilight Twinkles Holi-Dazzled

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Black on Black
1 Coat SinfulColors Twilight Twinkles*
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

The Holiday season and these "brilliant flakes of gold" were meant to go together! This gold flake glitter topper is a great way to add a whole lot of luxe to your manicure! Twilight Twinkles contains a mix of small gold hex, gold square, and gold flake glitter in a clear base. Just one coat adds a bunch of sparkle! 

Compared to Galax-Sea, the glitter flakes in Twilight Twinkles are definitely a little thicker, but you should be okay if you use 2-3 coats of clear before your quick dry top coat. For my photos, I used only 1 coat of clear and 1 coat of Seche, but this is actually the 3rd time I've worn Twilight Twinkles. I got it pretty smoothed out in a jelly glitter sandwich, and in yesterday's mani. (Which, thanks to operator error and a squirrely little Peanut, I ended up with crazy smudges, so today is a bit of a mulligan!) As much as I really like the way this mani looks, I can't wait to see how these glitter flakes look layered with some of my other Holiday polishes! (pssst... The 12 Manicures of Christmas are coming!)

Twilight Twinkles is part of SinfulColors Holiday 2014 Collection. You can find it in the SinfulColors Holi-Dazzled display, available exclusively at Walgreens for $1.99 a bottle! The full collection also contains Decadent, Galax-Sea, Hottie, Let's Talk, Out of This World, Pine Away, and Sugar Sugar. Follow SinfulColors on Facebook and Twitter

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…

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…
