Tonight is thee night... Pretty Little Liars finale fever is running rampant, and I think the fandom might just break the internet! In a few short hours... we might actually know the identity of A!

I tried to incoporate a little bit of everything from PLL in here. If I could freehand the signature A, I totally would have, but I am sadly not an artiste in that sense. C'est la vie, right? Thankfully, one of my Bundlemonster plates has the letters to spell Love or Hate, and they're in a really cool circus-y font that just feels like A, given Charlemagne the Great and Boo Boo's Ice Cream. And those clowns... O.o

Am I the only one who forgets which plates they have on a consistent basis? I found the plate with the zipper on it and practically fell over at the thought of being able to do a black hoodie nail. Tippi the bird definitely needed representation, add in the New York skyling, fingerprints, some paint splatter, a mask, a lock, handcuffs and then borrowing a little bit of style from Jonny and Spencer's graffiti and BAM. Or should I say, Voila?!?

When I started watching the show waaaay back in 2010, it was because I was a really big fan of the books and theorizing over them. Who knew I'd become so obsessed with the TV show, too?!? I can't wait to see what we're going to find out tonight! I've made my predictions... have you made yours?

The finale airs tonight at 8PM EST and 10PM EST on ABC Family. I'm going to try and watch both airings, if a certain little Peanut is cooperative...

she's not telling...

I'll be liveblogging, probably a little bit on Tumblr and a little bit on Twitter, unless I manage to get Chromey out so I can do both simultaneously. Either way, expect reactions, theories, a review, and plenty of ramblings! And if you don't follow me on Tumblr or Twitter... you should totally get on that!

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…

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.

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 coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

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.
