SinfulColors Pink Happy Thoughts

So, I can't exactly say that this manicure turned out the same as it looked in my head. But that doesn't mean I don't like it. The look was inspired from a graphic at Church on Sunday. It was one of those moving on-screen graphics with a really pretty mix of glowing coral, pink, and aqua.

I started out with Feel The Vibe as my base. Two easy coats and I was ready for random smatterings followed by saran wrap. Am i addicted to this type of manicure? Yes. I feel like it's safe to admit that here. I really can't get enough of how the colors mesh and meld together.

While I do in general like how this manicure turned out, I'm not completely loving it. I think Feel The Vibe was a little too orange. I originally wanted to go with a coral and then started feeling adventurous. Treble Maker falls in the same category. A little too green of a green.

Thankfully, it's #PLLDay today, so that means I'll get a decent amount of time to do my nails this evening. Especially if I can't make it out of Peanut's room in time for the 8PM airing. That's definitely been a problem lately! So, in addition to more clues about the identity of A/Charles/Black Widow/Red Coat... stay tuned for another mani tomorrow!

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.

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 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
