SinfulColors Pink Ansen over Coral Riff

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Coral Riff
1 Coat SinfulColors Ansen Pink
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

From the moment Pink Ansen arrived, I knew I'd be using it in a layering. Did I want to go dark, light, contrasting, complimenting? But then I remembered Coral Riff, a gorgeous coral creme with turquoise shimmer that I haven't worn in a while. It's a gorgeous shade on its own, but coupled with everything that's going on in Pink Ansen? I'm not gonna say "nailed it" or anything, but...

On first glance, I though that Pink Ansen was a flaky glitter topper, but upon closer inspection, I realized it was chock full of bar glitter. In addition to that lovely blue/violet bar glitter, Pink Ansen is packed with opalescent glitter. I've picked out every color in the rainbow in this polish! Which really makes me want to see it over some different colors!

Application was easy, and because Pink Ansen has such great glitter payoff, I only needed one coat for my layering! I did top it off with a coat of clear and a coat of Seche, because bar glitter can be a little wonky. Thankfully there was no wonk to speak of! My nails are just about completely smooth!

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…

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 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.
