After wearing yellow alllllll day Friday, I was in need of a palate cleanser. Around here... palate cleansing usually comes in the form of the color pink. Specifically, Eden from the Zoya Delight Collection.

If you're looking for the perfect blue-toned bubble gum pink, Zoya Eden is totally your jam. I sometimes shy away from mid-tone pinks, but I'm loving it on my nails right now. It's pink, springy, flowery, and fun!

Formula-wise... this one definitely needed all 4 coats. I still had visible streaks with the 3rd coat, and was skeptical that the 4th would even out. Thankfully, when I added the 1st coat of clear, it helped some of the polish settle down, even more so with the 2nd coat of clear. One coat of Seche Vite and I was good to go.

So... I actually wore this color all weekend long, while painting Peanut's soon-to-be new room. I didn't get a chance to take pics on Saturday before I got her paint all over myself. Then that night I was too tired to paint anything else, much less my nails! Peanut actually entertained me with a shadow puppet show that just wouldn't quit! And after more painting yesterday, my nails were in no condition to be photographed! I painted this mani on fresh last night after Peanut went to bed.  

Despite wearing it all weekend, I'm still really liking this color. It also has serious potential to be the base for an all pink seriotype. They're forecasting a rainy week, so that usually means my nails will be extra cheery and bright!

Happy Monday!!!

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.

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…

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
