Fishbowl Friday *037*

Friday, Friday, Fri-DAY! Anyone else as excited as I am that this week is fiiiinally over? If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that the prompt for this week's Fishbowl Friday was 6 COLORS...

SinfulColors Truth or Lavendare
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat

Did I mention the fact that the prompts for Fishbowl Friday are totally subjective and open to interpretation? The prompt may have read 6 COLORS, but that really meant 11 polishes for a lovely seriotype with green, light blue, neon purple, navy blue, pink, lavender, gold, and glitter in at least 4 colors, right? I thought so too!

I started out this layering with a base of SinfulColors Truth or Lavendare and everything just snowballed from there. A little bit of this, dab with saran wrap. Some of that, another dab of saran wrap. I wasn't really sure that I would use all of polishes I originally picked out, but I think there were only 2 that didn't make the cut. I definitely made an effort to use as many of my Pure Ice shimmers as possible. I've been waiting soooooo patiently to play with them!

All in all, I really love the way this turned out. It's a ah-mazingly gorgeous purple seriotype. It's like a galaxy of grapey goodness. I can't say that I was planning on it turning out with quite so much purple. That sort of happened by accident. A very gorgeous, glittery, happy kind of accident!

Coming up, it's going to be a busy, busy weekend! We're going out to celebrate Mr. Sparkle's birthday with his parents tonight, so, I don't see any nail-painting time in the forecast for this evening. But I'm okay with that! I'm loving this seriotype so much right now that it needs to stay for at least another day. Speaking of tomorrow, that's another busy day, too. My sister and her husband are coming up for the weekend, so that means more fun family festivities tomorrow! Say it with me now... Happy, Happy Week-END! Happy, Happy Week-END!

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
