Neons are made for Mondays, right? What better way to get up and get moving than with outrageously bright nails like these? That "case of the Mondays" won't know what hit it!

Last Friday, I stopped by my local Sally Beauty Supply in hopes of finding the OPI Colorpaints Collection. It was nowhere to be found, but I did find a couple of goodies.

Glow with the Flow was one of them, and I'm seriously glad I picked it up. I have a neon pink polish, but it's more of the orange/yellow leaning variety than this. I tend to shy away from blue-toned pinks, but then I wear them and can't remember why I do that.

Application was really good. A little streaky on the first coat, but nothing like the problematic neon formula from China Glazes past. Sunsational Collection, what? Still trying to figure out how to make those work. My craving for neon right now is too strong, though. So... 2nd coat filled in more. Most people would probably be opaque at 3... I could've sworn I saw a few little lines, so I added a 4th coat to really make sure.

I'm really loving this color on my nails right now. So much so, that I think I might paint my toes with Glow with the Flow. I usually try to stay neutral with my toes, but this would just look so summery! Right now, I'm wearing A Latte Love, and I'm not liking it on my toes as much as I thought I would. But Glow with the Flow is like summer in a bottle. If you don't own a neon pink like this, you should definitely pick it up before you can't find it anymore!

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…
