China Glaze Red-y to Rave

Lemmings are a natural part of nail blogging. You see someone post a polish, you fall in love, it must be yours. Red-y to Rave by China Glaze is one of those polishes. I'm seriously soooo glad I saw photos of this shade and decided it was worth hunting down!

Polishes Used: 

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats China Glaze Red-y to Rave
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

This blazingly bright polish is another neon from China Glaze's Electric Nights Collection. It's also a reminder that if I'm on the fence about a bright/neon polish, I should just pull the plug and get it. This was the last bottle of Red-y to Rave on the Electric Nights display at Ulta. I was prepared to order it online, but I'd much rather buy polish in the store if I can swing it! 

But back to the brightness! Red-y to Rave is the neon red polish of this collection, and it definitely does nawt disappoint. Inside, it's really bright, outside, it's a little blinding! Even my camera had to do some adjusting each time this polish came across the lens! 

And then there's the formula... just as easy as all the other neon polishes from this collection. I probably could've gotten away with just 2 coats, but I forgot to wrap my tips, so three coats and then off to dreamland! 

As much as I do really love this color, the creative side of me is itching to do another super sparkly Seriotype. It's been sooooo long since I've done one!

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.

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

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
