SinfulColors Love Sprinkles

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Tempest
3 Coats SinfulColors Love Sprinkles
2 Coats Seche Vite

When I first heard about the Flirt with Hearts Collection, Love Sprinkles was thee polish I was most interested in getting my hands on. Quite obviously, since I have one of the worst cases of glitteritis known to mankind. But I digress... Lately, more and more satin glitters are making their way onto the market, making for really fun polishes like Love Sprinkles. Also, satin glitter is thinner than metallic glitter, so you get really great glitter payoff, which is never a bad thing!

Early on, I knew I wanted to pair Love Sprinkles with a purple shade for an incredibly girly Valentine's Day look. Tempest is a gorgeous radiant orchid-esque shade from SinfulColors core collection that fit that description perfectly! Three easy coats of Tempest later, and I was ready for some glitter action...

I started with one coat of Love Sprinkles on all my nails. If I got hearts, yay, if not, no big deal. The 2nd time around, I fished out hearts and strategically(ish) placed them on my nails. I wasn't trying for any sort of pattern. I also filled in with glitter as I went. The 3rd time around, I placed a couple of hearts and made sure to go over each nail with one last swipe of glitter before moving on to the next nail.

In all honesty, I wasn't sure how application was going to work out on this one. SinfulColors glitters have always been easy to work with, but satin glitter can be tricky! Thankfully, I was pleasantly suprised. Love Sprinkles was the easiest satin glitter polish I've worked with so far. (Which makes me really excited to try Shamrockin'!) With any glitter topper like this one, you're gonna fish for some glitters to get the look you want. I don't mind because I really enjoy the way the end result looks.

After Love Sprinkles, I topped off this layering with 2 coats of Seche Vite, because I wanted a super smooth finish. That decision led to a little bubbling on a few nails. Thanks to the glitter size and color in Love Sprinkles, it's not uber noticeable unless you're thisclose to my nails.

Love Sprinkles is part of SinfulColors Flirt With Hearts Collection for Valentine's Day 2015. You can find it on display at Walgreens, Rite-Aid and other mass retailers in February 2015 for $1.99 a bottle!

  1. I love your pairing here, it's beautiful! Any tips for fishing out the bigger pieces of glitter? I just bought both the light and dark shamrockin' and I have a hard time getting them out of the bottle. Thanks :)

  2. Thank you so much!!! I thought it was actually easier getting the heart-shaped glitter out of Love Sprinkles because there are so many of them! I just leaned my bottle to the side a little, and tried to catch the bigger piece on my brush. Then, when I pulled it out, I made sure the glitter was on the top part of the brush. I flexed the brush a little on the brim of the bottle, letting some excess polish drip back, but keeping the glitter on top of the brush, ready for placement. Maybe that will help? I'm really excited to try Shamrockin'... it's waiting in my queue!

  3. Hahaa, yes, never enough fingers to paint! Thanks for your response and tips on getting the glitter out. I'm always drawn to the flower and heart topcoats, but not the long application process that it involves sometimes. Keep up the great swatches and blog :)

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

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

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 sha
