SinfulColors Shamrockin' over Happy Ending

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coat SinfulColors Happy Ending
2 Coats SinfulColors Shamrockin'
1 Coat Seche Vite

Let me preface this by stating that these pics aren't color accurate at all. You're seeing Happy Ending as a mild, leafy, more blue-based green, when in fact, it's definitely a vibrant, almost acidic lime yellow-leaning green. It's bright and happy, and it's got this gorgeous gold shimmer that runs through it. I immediately thought of St. Patrick's Day when I saw it!

Then there's Shamrockin'... a glitter topper from SinfulColors in the vein of Love Sprinkles. It's got white and lime matte glitter, emerald green metallic glitter, and white matte glitter flowers. I've seen bottles of another version of Shamrockin' floating around that doesn't have the emerald green metallic glitter hexes. On one hand, I can see the appeal of both versions, but I'm glad I picked up this one!

When it comes to St. Patrick's Day, I'll admit, I loooooove the food. I'm all about trying new foods, and honestly, bangers and mash is just awesome. period. Other than that, I don't have any Irish ancestry or anything like that. It's a total coincidence that my daughter's name is Irish. We just happened to like the name and the meaning! And obviously the days of me hitting the bar are long, looooong gone! 

P.S. If you're feeling the luck of the Irish today... there's still time to enter the Jackpot Candle giveaway!!! It does end tonight, though, so hurry, hurry, hurry!!!

How do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

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

Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 5 Coats daniPro Forever Girl* 1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover* 1 Coat Seche Vite 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 sha

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.
