Fishbowl Friday *032*

It's been a little bit of a crazy week, and I know, I say that just about every week lately! But seriously, I've been fighting headaches all week, and it's just not a good time for me to be sick right now. Waaaay too many things to get done! So, thankfully, the Fishbowl threw me a little bit of a bone with ACCENT nails for this week's installment of Fishbowl Friday...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Endless Blue
1 Coat Rainbow Honey Cuprum Veritas
Essie Summit of Style
Spoiled No Reception

Bright blue and copper are just meant to go together, don't you think? I seriously love this combination. The only thing I wish, is that I had a superfine coppery glitter in my stash. I'm pretty sure I don't have one, but there might be one lurking in the sparklestash. My stash is in the midst of being organized and packed, so... who knows, really? I'll just be glad when it's nice and tidy and all in one place.

Endless Blue was a real no brainer for the bright blue. It's seriously becoming a staple favorite of mine. Definitely going to need another bottle!

For the copper counterpart of this ACCENT mani... I started out with one coat of Cuprum Veritas, from Rainbow Honey's June mystery bag. It's a little too orange, and rather than remove and start all over, I just tried to balance out the orange with silver glitter in the way of No Reception. I did a couple of coats back and forth between Summit of Style and No Reception to get a little cooler copper color. I just can't resist using tons of layers!

As much as I like this layering, it's definitely coming off tonight! I've got a wedding to attend tomorrow and these accents just don't quite go with what I'm planning on wearing! So... that's that, I suppose. Happy Friday... and have a great weekend!!!

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.

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…

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. I ma…
