Morgan Taylor Watch Your Step, Sister!

Today, thanks to a recent order from HB Beauty Bar, I've got one of the latest polishes from new-to-me brand Morgan Taylor! From the Cinderella Collection... Watch Your Step, Sister!

I've oohed and ahhed over some Morgan Taylor polishes in the past, but not really enough to warrant purchasing a bottle. It's not readily available for pickup anywhere near me, so that was definitely a deterrent. Until the Cinderella Collection...

I saw a few posts about the collection, and this gorgeous pink creme stuck in my mind. So, when I was going a little nuts ordering polishes from HB Beauty, I thought it would be the perfect time to throw in a bottle and try out the brand.

Watch Your Step, Sister is a really punchy mid-toned pink. I seriously love this shade of pink. It's got a little hint of coral to it, but only enough to warm it up. Thankfully, it's nothing that takes it over into actual coral/peach/orange territory.

The formula on this polish was a little thicker than what I'm used to. Application was good, once I got the hang of the brush. It's a little thicker than I'm used to, so I had a little flooding on the first go around and had to start over. The brush holds a lot of polish, so I found that a light hand worked better. I also tried to make sure to have as little extra polish on the brush stem as I could.

For my photos... I used 3 coats and still had a little patchiness. Nothing that 2 coats of clear couldn't handle, though. This polish settles nicely, which I figured it would. Thicker polishes usually do.

Overall, I really like this mani. The color is perfect for both Spring and Summer, and should work nicely with Escar-Go To France, once it comes out! For now though, I'm really hoping the prompt I pull tonight will work with Watch Your Step, Sister for Fishbowl Friday Numero 26. We'll see, we'll see!

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.
