Fishbowl Friday *041*

by - 8/14/2015

It's Friiiiiiiday! Let's all do a little happy dance, okay? So, last night I pulled the prompt PINK for today's manicure. Fabulous! I mean, I love pink polish, so it should've been easy right? You would think, but here's what I ended up with... Don't worry, there is a tiny little bit of pink in there. I promise!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Orly Gumdrop (middle fingers)
5 Coats Sephora by OPI I'm Wired (thumb, pointer, pinky fingers)
Morgan Taylor Escar-Go To France (ring finger)
Orly Mirrorball (ring finger)
SinfulColors Casablanca (ring finger)
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Leave it to me to turn a simple prompt into something way more complicated that it needed to be. The Fishbowl tried to throw me a bone... but as soon as I saw PINK, I knew I wanted to use Escar-Go To France. And it begged to be paired with mint and coral! So, that's what I did!

I can't remember if I had problems with I'm Wired the last time I wore it. This time around, I couldn't get it to stop streaking. That was a little frustrating. It was pretty hot in the sparkle studio last night, so maybe I can chalk it up to that? All the other polishes behaved like normal, so... maybe it needs thinner?

Gumdrop was the real surprise of the bunch. For a pastel, it went on with no problems whatsoever. I'm sure I could've stuck with just two coats if I had remembered to wrap my tips the second time around. Or the first. I've had Gumdrop in my collection for a while, and I honestly can't remember if I've used it before? It's a really pretty shade!

On my ring fingers, I did a little layering with Casablanca, Mirrorball, and Escar-Go To France. First, I painted on one coat of Casablanca. That's all it took for insanely full coverage. Not gonna lie, I was impressed. Next up, I added two coats of Mirrorball for a lot of holographic glitter. Lastly, I added one coat of Escar-Go To France. I dabbed on random glitter in bare spots for a sparse second coat, then topped with clear and a layer of Seche Vite.

You know... I liked how this looked immediately when I got done painting last night. The more I look at it, the more I like it! I'm not sure if I'm going to take this off in favor of wearing something else tomorrow or not. I could easily just stick with this and let the crick in my neck sort itself out tonight! My sister is coming up to visit tomorrow, so I want to make sure I'm 100%! Other than that, it should be a pretty relaxing weekend. Happy Friday, and Happy, Happy Weekend!!!
