"I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship..." Rick said that to Louie just before the end of the iconic movie with which this polish shares the name. Casablanca. And yes, that's the correct quote. The version most people are familiar with is actually misquoted!

Since receiving this polish for review, I've used it three times before letting it enjoy the spotlight solo. Casablanca is described by PR as a "Shining Chrome Silver," and while it doesn't have that mirrorlike finish of a chrome, it is a perfect fence paint silver. It's insanely pigmented. I had full coverage on just one coat, but went back to wrap my tips on the second and even out some lines on the third. Most of the visible lines leveled out anyway as Casablanca dried.

Way back in the day, this is the color my toenails used to be all. year. round. Why? Silver went with everything! Thankfully, I've moved past that train of thought, but I still enjoy a great metallic silver like Casablanca. Not only can you wear it on its own, it works well as a base for layering and makes a gorgeous gradient! I haven't tried it yet, but I imagine it would work really well as a stamping polish and in Seriotype or Galaxy manis!

Casablanca is part of SinfulColors Class Act All Nighter Collection. You can find it on display at Walgreen and other mass retailers for $1.99 a bottle. The full All Nighter Collection also contains Blue Sensation, Daredevil, Fig, Glass Pink, Ice Dream, Late Night Haute, Night Owl, Purple Diamond, and Sinful Sunrise.

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. 

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…
