When I buy polish, I focus mainly on shade, finish, and formula. I don't really worry about dry time thanks to Seche Vite, and I rarely wear a manicure for more than a day or two.

But not all polish enthusiasts are created equal.

Some want a manicure that will last a really long time. So, gel polishes and the 14 day manicure are essentials for this type of lacquer lover.

Others, however, want a manicure that's quick, mess-free, and easy to clean up. That's where Nail Appliques/Wraps come in...

SinfulColors Nail Appliques

Joining the ranks of other nail wraps and appliques, SinfulColors recently introduced their own line of Nail Appliques with the launch of their summer Street Fusion Collection. Neon Splat is one of 5 Nail Appliques currently available.


SinfulColors Nail Appliques are made from actual polish, so they're easy enough to work with. The best way I can describe them is a thin coat of already dry polish that you apply directly to your nails like a sticker. The appliques are tacky, and stick to the nail with just a little bit of pressure.

If you've ever used appliques or wraps before, you know there's a zillion tricks to getting them to work exactly the way you want them to. Some bloggers recommend heating them up with a hair dryer to make the applique more pliable. Others show how you can cut them in half and get the most out of your appliques. Definitely some good tips that I might try next time. However, I was polishing late last night after Pretty Little Liars. My hair dryer was nawt close and I just needed 2 appliques for accent nails.

First, figuring out which applique fit each ring finger best. For me, it was number 6 of the 8 appliques on the sheet. The 7th applique was actually too large for my ring finger, and #6 was a little small, but I got around that by painting a coat of Black on Black on my ring finger before putting on the Neon Splat applique. That way, any visible excess would appear to be black, just like in the design! If you do the same, make sure you allow time for that coat of polish to dry!

Next, I centered the curved edge at my cuticle as best as I could and trimmed off the excess at the top. I firmly pushed the applique onto the tip of my nail and filed carefully with a fine grit nail file. After that, I topped the applique with a coat of SinfulColors clear coat, taking time to wrap my tips. That was followed with a quick coat of Seche Vite to keep everything together.

I'm not sure if it's just the curve of my nails, but both of my appliques bubbled a little on the sides. I'm thinking this is where the hair dryer might have been useful. Definitely going to give that tip a try in the future. I will say though, the bubbles are small, and a lot more visible in the photos than in person.

Originally, I had planned to pair Neon Splat with black, neon pink, and a glitter accent nail. That seemed like a little too much, given the glitter and graffiti accents, so the pink was nixed. Honestly, I think it keeps the look on the edgy side, and that's really what I was going for in the first place. I like the look of this a lot and would definitely wear this exact same mani again!

Neon Splat Nail Appliques are part of SinfulColors Street Fusion Collection. You can find them on display at Walgreens and other mass retailers for $1.99 each! Follow SinfulColors on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter!

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…

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…

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.
