Layering: Prosecco People

If I was in love with Autumn People layered over Stoppped Watch, I don't know what to call what I am right now. Smitten? Enamored? Infatuated? It's just so pretty...

Polishes Used: 

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
4 Coats SinfulShine Prosecco (Original Formula) 
2 Coats Pahlish Autumn People
2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I know, I know, I was really trying to think of something to layer this over other than taupe. But then I remembered how pretty and shimmery Prosecco was, and it just sort of happened. And it's a glittery kind of wonderful, isn't it?!?

First of all, it's been a little while since I used one of my SinfulShine polishes on its own, and it made me a little sad that the line was reformulated. Now, SinfulShine polishes are actual gel polishes that require a special top coat in order to seal everything together. I like to change my polish way too much for that, but the reformulation did bring back Prosecco. And that's a good thing, because Prosecco is the last polish the nail blogging world collectively swooned over. Hard to believe that was a whole year ago. I feel like we're swooning less these days, but that's a completely different topic for another day. 

In my original swatches, I used three coats, but this time around, four was the magic number. Prosecco is an almost opaque purple leaning, grayish tan with super-fine shimmer that flashes mainly gold, but I see copper and green, too. It's thee perfect polish to layer underneath Autumn People. What else would you want underneath a "mix of red ultrachrome flakes, gold flakes, and multicolored chameleon flakes with neon purple shimmer?" Nothing, I tell you! These two go together beautifully!!! 

I can't say that I'll be changing my polish around tonight. Nope. I'm keeping this beauty on for at least another day, maybe two. In the meantime, I'll be giving my cuticles the love they lost during #31DC2015 and I may or may not be working feverishly on NaNoWriMo. (I totally am.) You know, as long as my nails don't distract me too much!

  2. Ahhhh, I wondered about the whole thing with Prosecco's reappearance, I would see it at Walgreens but then at Target there was a bigger display with black bottle of topcoat and that appearing to be required put me off. I have too much polish to try out to need it to last days into weeks! But everyone is different.

    I do like the layering combo!!

  3. Arathael, I know what you mean! I see so many colors that are cute and then I'm like, oh, it's a Gel, nevermind! But I might give the new SinfulShine line a try over the Holidays when I'm a little more busy and can't paint my nails every day. I'm curious how long they last, but for the most part, I just like to switch it up too often!

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…

Zoya Free4You Promotion

It's Zoya promotion time again! This is one sale that I just have to jump on every year. Usually, it's because I try to do a no-buy around the Holidays and I'm just itching to buy all of the polish. I didn't really set out specifically to do that in 2015, but that's how it ended up. So I was pretty excited to get the email about Zoya's one week only Free4You sale!


The premise of the sale is simple, choose 4 Zoya shades, (excluding pre-packaged sets, Naked Manicure, Zoya Treatments, and the Spring 2016 Whispers Collection) enter 4YOU at checkout, and pay just $15 promotional shipping. That's the equivalent of $3.75/bottle with free shipping. Zoya polishes normally retail for $9-$10/bottle, so this is a pretty sweet promotion!

Now I know you're wondering... what shades did I pick out? I thought you'd never ask! I swear, I didn't set out to only order purple and blue polishes. And I know that exactly none of these were on my Lemmings list! That see…
