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!

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…

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.

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 coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

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.
