Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Zoya Eden
2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

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!!!

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.

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
