Layering: Eternal Uptown Fire

So remember last week when I wondered what The Uptown would look like layered over Eternal Beauty? Well, I did just that and added a coat of Fantasy Fire on top for good measure to create this ah-mazingly sparkly layering...

This is one seriously magical layering! I am definitely in love! The Uptown adds a fun splash of color to the holo in Eternal Beauty. Fantasy Fire adds a splash of sparkle overtop to really give depth and dimension to this layering without covering up the gorgeous shifting flakies of The Uptown. 

Sigh. 

I'm pretty sure that I would buy versions of The Uptown in every color of the rainbow. Fantasy Fire, too. And thanks to this layering, I might not be able to use The Uptown without Fantasy Fire. Really wishing I would've bought backups of both. 

I tried my best to show all the different angles of this incredible layering. There's so many different things going on here, shifting flakies, holo flash, shimmer, and then there's the difference between sunlight and shade...

Yep. I'm really loving this one. Part of me wants to keep it on longer, and the other part of me is seriously eyeballing my first Pahlish order. Definite first world problems going on right now. Maybe I'll figure out what I'm wearing tomorrow and go from there... Stay tuned!

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…

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…

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.
