Green Ocean has an interesting history for a nail polish. Waaaaay back in the day it was a really big deal because it was one of very few affordable flaky polishes available. Usually, it would only pop up around St. Patrick's Day, and if you didn't get to the display quickly, this little shimmery lemming would be gone. Thankfully, SinfulColors included it as part of their summer collection this year, and polish enthusiasts everywhere collectively cheered!

When I look at Green Ocean, I see glittery mermaid magic. In a bottle. But that's probably just me. It's honestly a really well suited name considering the aqua green base that's just loaded with green and blue flakes. And I mean loooooaded. Just one coat for all that shimmery goodness in the photos. Sadly, the sun doesn't want to come out and play today, but I know this polish would just light up in a ray of sunshine!

Application was good. This polish is a little thicker than most SinfulColors polishes, but you don't have to use a lot to get great results! I can feel some of the flakes and see some of them in the photos, but they're not the sharp kind of flakies that some polishes have. In the future, I'd probably go over this again with another coat of clear, just to be sure.

Green Ocean is part of SinfulColors Having a Blast Collection. You can find it on display at Walgreens and other mass retailers for $1.99 a bottle! The full Having a Blast Collection also contains Blue By You, Hot Spot, Out of This World, Ruby Ruby, Snow Me White, and Star Blast-Off. Follow SinfulColors on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

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

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put
