Fishbowl Friday *008*

I'm thinking I need to dump out my prompts, shake 'em up, and put them in the bowl all over again. Or maybe just get a bigger fishbowl. This week's prompt is 4 COLORS. (Not all that different from last week's prompt, huh?) Thankfully, my definition of "color" is broad, and can mean four distinct hues OR four different bottles of polish. I'm going with the latter, bringing you a manicure featuring four different polishes...

SinfulColors Ice Dream Accent Mani

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulShine Most Sinful
1 Coat SinfulColors Ice Dream (accent)
1 Coat SinfulColors Queen of Beauty (accent)
1 Coat Spoiled Champagne Siren (accent)
1 Coat SinfulColors Queen of Beauty (accent)
2 Coats SinfulColors Ice Dream (accent)
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I'm seriously loving this manicure right now! Honestly, Most Sinful and other bright blues are just so fun and cheery, I can't get enough. It also doesn't hurt that they're kind of trendy at the moment, either! I definitely could've gotten away with just two coats of Most Sinful, but I forgot to wrap my tips, so, three coats and on to my accent nails.

Why all the layers of glitter on the accents? If I had used only Ice Dream, it probably would've taken forever to reach the opacity in my pictures. I was planning to add Champagne Siren, and had figured on adding SinfulColors Super Star to the mix, when I realized just how sheer Ice Dream was. And honestly, I think using Queen of Beauty as filler rather than Super Star kept this from becoming a total failicure.

I've already drawn my prompt for next week, and I think I might just continue to do that in the future, so I have some planning time. Stay tuned... next week, the prompt is BIRTHDAY. Hmm... should I use glitter, glittery shimmer, shimmery glitter, or just do a jelly glitter sandwich?!?

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
