After searching high and low for Sky Tree, I fiiiiiinally found it during a recent Walgreens trip. As soon as I saw it swatched, I knew it had to be mine. If you've been lemming it too, you won't be disappointed. I definitely need to wear it on its own and swatch it here! It's a really pretty slightly jelly teal that is loaded with turquoise shimmer.
When I picked the prompt this time around, ABSTRACT definitely screamed Seriotype, so that's what I went with. Using Sky Tree as a base, I added splashes of Too Yacht To Handle and Endless Blue, dabbing each coat with saran wrap for a more random look. I topped the entire thing off with a coat of On Pinks & Needles, but I still wasn't satisfied. So, I added random splashes of Sky Tree, then topped it all off with another coat of On Pinks & Needles.
In hindsight, I proabably should've used colors that were more different from Sky Tree. I should also probably learn to step outside of my blue, turquoise, pink, aqua, purple comfort zone. It's definitely my default color combination!
Like I said, Sky Tree is a gorgeous polish that I'm going to need to wear on its own. And I recently picked up Rebel Rose, which looks like it might be a similar polish, just a pink jelly loaded with pink/purple shimmer. But the real surprise? On Pinks & Needles! Talk about glitter payoff! I really wasn't expecting that, and it was a nice surprise to get so much coverage! I could've easily left it at one coat, but I wanted more of a layered look to the glitter. For having larger pieces of glitter, On Pinks & Needles applied so easily! Now I just need the same exact formula for all the colors and finishes of glitter. Please?!?
When it comes to the photos... I know they look a little different, and there's a reason for that. I've been scouting out places to take pictures around the new house, and I'm still learning what times/areas work the best. I typically prefer daylight shade, so I've been working a little outside of my comfort zone. Results may vary, but I think that they came out pretty well. Maybe a little too shady for the shaded ones, but you'll have this, I suppose!
In other news, thanks to crashing so early last night, this manicure is still on my fingers. So, it still counts as an NOTD... Not sure if I'll be changing it tonight or not. If I haven't mentioned it before, and I don't think I have, Seriotypes do tend to last a little longer than your average mani, mainly because of the multitude of layers that go into them!
Other than that... it's Saturday. Lots of fun things planned for the day. Running around to get some groceries, lunch with Granny and Pop Pop, playground time, followed by dinner with Gigi and Papi. So... Happy Saturday! Hope you have a great weekend!!!
