Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coats SinfulColors Savage
2 Coats SinfulColors Prized Plume*
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

If this layering doesn't have you channeling your inner peacock... I don't really know what will! It's blue, bright, and cheery and is definitely making me crave warmer, sunnier Spring weather. Especially in the midst of all. this. snow.  O.o

SinfulColors Savage is a gorgeous peacock blue creme that dries matte and is easily opaque in one coat. Buuuut you know me and my wrapping issues, so two coats it was! On top, I layered Prized Plume, a gorgeous cornflower blue irridescent shimmer that really makes Savage shine and come alive.

Prized Plume is one of three opalescent toppers included in SinfulColors Spring Fever collection for 2015. Prized Plume was sent for review, and I picked up Savage last week at Walgreens. It's part of the permanent collection there, and I believe you can find it on the Flight Patterns Spring Fever display. So far, I've only spotted that display at KMart, and that was on January 29th. I have yet to see a new SinfulColors display at either of my area Rite-Aids. They seem to be very understocked with LE displays at the moment. Booooo.

But YAY for bright blue layerings like this one that make me hang on to the hope that is called Spring. Because honestly, I'm so incredibly over snow, ice, sleet and even my Uggs. Bring on the rain boots, windbreakers and WARM. 'Cause, you know, right now warm is like 40, but I will take it in a heartbeat!

Anyone else out there channeling Spring like me?

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…
