Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Rainbow Honey Laguna Grande
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

This lovely blue-leaning teal jelly polish is part of Rainbow Honey's May Mystery Bag. It is seriously packed with a ton of orange-gold, gold, and green-gold flakies and shimmer. There's a definite undersea I-want-to-be-a-mermaid vibe going on here!

Laguna Grande is a jelly polish, so while application was easy, I definitely needed 4 coats to get full coverage. My first coat was really patchy, but evened out with subsequent coats. Oh, and don't mind my tips... I completely forgot to wrap them and only realized it early this morning. Also, my photos show this as more of a blue polish when in real life, it's more of a teal. Sometimes my camera likes to zap greens out of teals and reds out of purples. This is one of those shades that you could wear any time of year. Really versatile.

I'd be remiss if I didn't show you all of the other goodies that came in this month's bag...

Rainbow Honey Mini Mystery Bag for May

In no particular order... Juicy Orange Pop Nail Lacquer, Laguna Grande Nail Lacquer, Neon Yoshimi Glitter Topper, Pina Coco-Colada Cuticle Balm, Mojito Classico Perfume Roller, and Twisted Ice Tea Cooling Gel.

So far, I've only tried Laguna Grande. I didn't swatch either of the other polishes, or even open up the other goodies to smell the new scents. My nose was seriously clogged by the time I got around to opening this package tonight, so I will hopefully get to it tonight. The cooling gel is really calling my name, because I've got some sort of rash on my neck, and I'm thinking it would really cut down on the heat and itchiness of it! I'm not quite sure if it's from my necklace, body wash, heat, or stress? I'm just trying my best not to touch it at all right now!

But back to Laguna Grande... it's a really gorgeous color, and I love the blend of shimmer and flakies going on in here. Just that mix alone would make an amazing glitter topper. I could see this polish doing really well in a seriotype. It would also look really great on toes! As much as I like it, I'll probably be switching it out tonight because there are a lot of other contenders calling my name! Scary thing is... Juicy Orange Pop is one of them! I know, I know, I loathe the color orange, but this is summery, cheery, and a jelly packed with glitter. Then there's the glitter mix in Neon Yoshimi... and then there's the possibility of what might be coming in the mail today. Such choices!

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.
