Wet n Wild Wear Skinny Jeans

3 Coats Wet n Wild Wear Skinny Jeans

So, Tuesday night, I stopped at my local KMart because I hadn't been there in a while, and what did I find? A fresh Wet n Wild Silver Lake Display! I'm talking every bottle of every shade freeeesh out the box! Also, I apologize for not taking pictures of the display. When I find nail polish I'm looking for, I tend to get really grabby. It doesn't matter that there's not another shopper within a 30 foot radius. I legit turn into a secret agent smuggling bounty over enemy lines. The struggle is soooooo real.

The Silver Lake Collection is Wet n Wild's Spring 2015 LE collection. That's code for, buy them when you see them, because they go seriously fast. I found this one quickly, considering it took me forever to find last year's All Access Beauty Collection for Summer. There's 6 shades in this one, too... A Latte Love, Reject the Mainstream, Stream of Consciousness, Tree Hugger, Warm Filter, and Wear Skinny Jeans.

I was a little torn between which shade to choose last night. Wear Skinny Jeans won out over Tree Hugger and Warm Filter. There's just something about blue shades like this. It's not quite as bright as Sail La Vie from SinfulColors, but it's definitely in that same color family. Just maybe 5 or 6 shades lighter? It has such a rightnow feel to it, you know?

Application was great... I forgot how much I've grown to love the Wet n Wild brush! It really helps you get a straight line at the cuticle! Coverage was pretty decent... I definitely needed the 3rd to make this opaque. I had a little issue with one nail not wanting to level out, but that was more because of those wonderful ridges in my nails.

If you look closely at the bottle in the pics, you can see a faint shimmer. Sadly, it doesn't transfer over to the nails exactly as it does in the bottle. You can see it when you're looking at your nails closely, but it's sparse and very hard to discern. More than anything, I feel like its there to help aid in an even, non-chalky finish. Which it totally does! 

As much as I love this color, I really can't wait to try some of the other ones in this collection! Also, tomorrow is Fishbowl Friday, so I'll definitely be switching it up. I'm just not sure if I'll be using Wear Skinny Jeans as a base for nail art, or if the prompt will call for something completely new!

Have you picked up any polishes from the Silver Lake Collection?

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…

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.
