SinfulShine Mirror, Mirror

The weather is getting chillier, and that means my nails are getting darker! Because, who doesn't think cold, Winter weather and rich, vampy polish shades were just meant to go together? Especially with a nice mug of steaming, hot coffee... YUM!

I know that it's still officially more than a month away, but it feels like Winter came early this year. Our forecasted high tomorrow is 27... for the high! Guaranteed Sarah-cicle weather... BUT thanks to Mirror, Mirror... I'm feeling the chill just a little bit less. A warm scarf and riding boots don't hurt either! 

Mirror, Mirror is one of those shades of red that just feels right this time of year. I normally pass on shades like this, and then regret that decision when I'm in a crisp/salted caramel/cranberry-all-the-things kind of mood. Sooooooo, yay! This year, I'm a little bit ahead of the game. Woohoo!!!

SinfulShine polishes are great to work with, and this one was no exception. Three easy coats for the coverage you see in the photos! Mirror, Mirror does have a slightly jelly finish to it, which adds a nice amount of shine in addition to their already uber-shiny formula.

This is a really pretty shade, and I'm honestly torn between keeping it on and stamping it, or switching up my base coat and using Mirror, Mirror to stamp. Or maybe add some glitter? What to do... what to do?!?

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…
