OPI The Berry Thought Of You

I think we can all agree that brights and neons are quite the thing this time of year. So, when I saw this gorgeous raspberry pink from OPI, I knew I had to have it!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats OPI The Berry Thought Of You
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Part of the OPI Brights Collection for 2015... The Berry Thought Of You. Just a warning, my photos show this as more of a pink-pink, when it's really more true to a raspberry in real life. A very pretty blue-tone raspberry color.

Application was great, and I honestly forgot how much I like the formula and brush on OPI polishes. I used to have better access to stores that sold OPI in quantity. Lately, if I want it, I've got to order it. Our local Sally Beauty gets picked out so quickly, and they usually only get 1 display from each collection. Aaaand according to one of the sales girls, they don't get every collection there. So, I've had to order online lately. I got this polish, On Pinks and Needles, and my Colorpaints from Ebay seller sendthetrend without any problems. But back to the application... great formula, three easy coats, and I'd say most people could probably get away with two.

I'm working hard to catch up to where I'm supposed to be for Blog Every Day in May... so tonight, I'm going to try to do my Pinterest Pick-A-Pin manicure. I'm not sure if I'm doing the nude/neon combo, or if I'm going to use The Berry Thought Of You as a base for something else. Such decisions, right? O.o

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

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.
