What is my SIGNATURE STYLE? Definitely layering manicures like the one you see above. It's an easy enough kind of manicure to do. Depending on what polishes you layer, and how you layer them, you can create all kinds of really fun and neat effects!

This layering has been on my mind for quite a while. On The Edge is seriously such a fun bright blue-leaning purple, that it needed to be in a mani with Fantasy Fire. But then there's Trapeze Artist, which is just about the coolest mix of glitter in a jelly base that I've come across in a long time. And then I figured I'd add a little purple shimmer in the way of Oh, Baby.

When I first started painting my nails, I came in on the high of jelly glitter sandwiches, and knew nothing about layering polish. Reading The Swatchaholic quickly changed that around, and it became my favorite way to paint my nails. I know that you could probably achieve a look similar to this with just one bottle of an indie polish, but I really prefer layering to create my own look! I like how I can create depth by layering glitters, shimmers, and colors in different layers. Definitely one of the biggest reasons I don't pull the plug and order more of my indie lemmings!

In other news... Just two more days of May left, and Blog Every Day in May is over! I'm really excited that I made it through, even if posting on the weekends became a little problematic. Home renovation projects and a toddler named Peanut will do that to you! This weekend will be no different, but it will all be worth it in the end! If you've got plans to be outside or just relax... Have a sip of iced tea for me, and have a great weekend! And as always... yaaaaaaaaaaay! It's Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!!!
