Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Wet n Wild Tree Hugger
2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Allow me to introduce Tree Hugger... a mint green creme from Wet n Wild's Silver Lake Collection. This shade is actually responsible for me lemming the entire collection. I saw it posted on Instagram... Yadi from Night Swatcher previewed the collection with her swatch of Tree Hugger and that was all it took!

When it comes to pastel polishes... I'm always wary of streaks and patchiness. At 3 coats, I had visible streaks, so this definitely required a 4th coat. There were still visible streaks when I went to add my layer of clear coat, so I doubled down and put on two coats, which smoothed everything over just fine. One coat of Seche Vite and I was off to dreamland!

I haven't pulled my prompt for Fishbowl Friday No. 24... that will happen tonight before painting. I'm thinking that Tree Hugger could be a great base for nail art, but it all depends on the prompt! Then there's my mood when I sit down to paint. Sometimes I'll spot a color on my desk and just have to put it on my nails. And of course, there's always the Peanut factor...

No idea why she was mad. I can't look at this without laughing!

P.S. I've still yet to find the Spoiled counterparts of the Silver Lake Collection. Have you seen them?!?

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.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite 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 c

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

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put
