Outfitting Me *002* Graphic Brights & Stripes

Graphic Brights & Stripes

You know... I've been in the market for bright blue pants for a while, and it took some time, but I finally managed to track down a pair at Old Navy. I'm pretty sure they're these... not the regular Pixie Ankle pants, and it was sheer luck that I even spotted them. They were hiding in the middle of a pile of black pants. And they were my size. That never happens.

Also something that never happens... finding a shirt in the store, on clearance, in your size, that you've pinned and passed over online. I have a thing for ampersands.

My blazer is a little different that the one picture, but also by Cynthia Rowley. I found it at TJ Maxx for $29.99, and because I am the biggest sucker for everything black and white striped... It found its way into my cart. I couldn't find it online, but you probably can still find it in the store!

I planned originally to wear my ankle moto boots, but opted for my ancient black suede wedges instead. It was cooooold here on Monday. In the 30s cold. Move it on out, Old Man Winter!

Last, but most certainly not least, I rounded my outfit out with my trusty tan leather bag on my shoulder, standard arm candy on the wrist, and Yana by Zoya on my nails.

I took a couple of pictures of the exact items I wore, but the lighting was really off. Not exactly blogworthy stuff. But I'm working on it... promise, promise!

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.
