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...

Copper Glitter Accent Mani

SinfulColors Endless Blue Accent Mani

Blue & Gold Accent Mani

SinfulColors Endless Blue Accent Mani

Essie Summit of Style Accent Mani

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!!!

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…

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.

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.
