Pinterest Pick-A-Pin

I'm pretty sure that when this prompt was created, the idea was to pick the pin, create/duplicate, photograph, and post about it. Well, I'm running a little behind on #BEDM, I'm a little tired, and feeling a little sick. So... please enjoy a little convo with myself about the contenders for an upcoming manicure.

1. I've been meaning to do one of these chevron and glitter nail art combos for a while... This one by Gabbys Nail Art is freehanded and amazing! I'll have to cheat and use stickers because I'm nawt that talented!

2. Oooooh, and then there's this one with hearts. Even if I wouldn't go with this design, I love the colors Nail Decor chose for this! There's something so crisp about aqua, black, and white mixed together.

3. I do have dotting tools that I've been neglecting. And I've never tried a dotticure like this one, also by Nail Decor. She really does have amazingly clean designs!

4. Then there's also this dotticure... I love the colors and the placement of dots in this one by Paulina's Passions. I think I tend to forget about dotting manicures. They are a bit time consuming, but all in all, they're pretty simple.

5. Or I could go the blobbicure route. I love the combo of nude, gold, and black. Not surprising. I do love black and gold together. This look from Chelsea King is bold yet fun and whimsical at the same time.

6. But there is always this fan brush manicure that I've been wanting to try. This one is from one of my favorite nail blogs, My Nail Polish Online. I love her designs and color choices! The mint in this is a little unexpected, but seriously pretty!

7. Then there's also this mix of dots, glitter, nude, and neon, which I really, really love. I wish I knew what was on the thumb, though! There's just something about nudes and neons that works really well together. This photo is from her old Instagram, you can find her at Polish Candies now.

8. Or I could go with a fun twist on the glitter gradient. I've been drooling over this layering from Let Them Have Polish for a really, really long time. And I finally have the Fantasy Fire to try it!

So yeah... clearly I've decided that I'll be doing some sort of mix between neon, dots, nude, brights, chevrons, stripes, glitter, blobs, or dry brush. At the moment, I'm liking numero seven the most... just probably with a different mix of colors. So... Nude, Neon, Glitter, Dots, Chevron. You know, unless I change my mind.

In other news... this was actually really fun! I haven't been able to look around Pinterest much lately, so this was a great opportunity to find some more blogs to follow! Gotta love that!!!

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

Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 5 Coats daniPro Forever Girl* 1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover* 1 Coat Seche Vite 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 sha

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.
