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! 



  1. Thanks Dina! I love these two paired together!

  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.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite 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 c

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put

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 ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite 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
