Layering: Wicked Autumn Binx

Okay, I'm calling it right now. Someone needs to come and take my bottle of Autumn People away from me ASAP. I can. not. stop. layering it with all the polish I own!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Hard Candy Wicked
1 Coat Zoya Binx
1 Coat Pahlish Autumn People
2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Well, if I liked it over the ah-mazing green jelly that is Stopped Watch, I'm drooooooling over this. I can't even describe how many just awesome things are going on in this layering. And I apologize that my photos don't quite do this justice. I'm wondering if it's my camera? Also... I might have gone a little bit overboard with the caffeine while nanowrimoing, so... sorrynotsorry.

Oh! To Caffeine...

Bringing it back, I promise.

So.

Wicked is actually a polish from Hard Candy's line prior to the current cylindrical bottles. You know, the square bottles with white caps? I honestly do regret that I didn't purchase more of this when I had the chance. But I'm superglad to own the ones that I have. Wicked is a black creme polish packed with superfine silver shimmer. I want to say that I've worn it before, but I'm really not sure that I have.

On top of that, I added Zoya Binx, which was fresh in my mind from the last Fishbowl Friday. There's just something magical about opalescent glitter over dark blues and blacks. But I couldn't stop there! Next, I added a coat of Autumn People from Pahlish, one of just two multichrome flaky polishes in my collection.

There's so much sparkly goodness on my nails right now... I'm seriously in love! I've had this layering on for the past two days, and I'm reluctant to take it off tonight. One, because I obviously love it. Also, I'm really glad I went down to nubs for this. Two, I am a little bit behind on my word count. I'm hoping to remedy that tonight. While everything about nubs and black polish feels right, wet nails and typing generally just do not go.

So we'll see.

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.

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 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…
