Polishes Used:

3 Coats SinfulColors Pink Happy Thoughts
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Say hello to my newest favorite neon pink... Pink Happy Thoughts! I recently picked this up, 98% sure that it was from Big Lots, but there's a 2% chance it might have been from KMart. I'm thinking it's probably Big Lots, given that I haven't bought much polish elsewhere since we've been in the new house.

While we're on the subject of the new house, the nail studio is definitely coming around. Just put away my pinks and reds last night. I shouldn't have been so surprised by the fact that my pink polishes no longer fit in one Helmer drawer... but I was! I'm going to have to go back and split them up, probably pales/nudes in one, brights/neons in the other.

But back to Pink Happy Thoughts... it's my new favorite neon pink. I've actually worn it twice in the past week! Like most neon polishes, the formula is sheer, but builds to what you see in the photos. Even at that point, there's still a little bit of VNL. The finish dries matte, but I shined it up with a coat of clear, followed by a coat of Seche Vite.

Sadly, this isn't on my nails right now, but it just might end up on my toes next. I've been wearing Treble Maker on my toes for a while now, and I'm thinking it's time for a change...

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.
