Fishbowl Friday 059 // 5 Colors

It feels so good to be doing one of these posts after two weeks off! I had such a great Holiday with my family, I hope you did too! I don't know about you, but I miss the coziness of the season. There's just something magical about it! But alas, January came just the same and brought a cold front with it.

While I was off, Peanut also had some time away from daycare, and that meant a whoooooole lot of watching My Little Pony. While playing My Little Pony. So, when I drew the 5 COLORS prompt... is it any wonder that Princess Celestia and her rainbow-colored mane popped in to my brain?

Peanut's big gift for Christmas this year was Canterlot Castle, home of Princess Celestia. I had been looking for a themed playset for Sparklegirl for a while, and when I saw this one, I knew it was the one! The Princess Celestia pony came with the set, along with Spike. If I'm not mistaken, I think this is the only way to get her royal highness, and she was the pony little Peanut couldn't stop talking about. Seemed like a win-win at the time, which has turned into a win-win-win because she looooooves playing ponies! Kids can be so fickle with toys, so I'm stoked that she likes it so much!

When I drew the 5 COLORS prompt this week, I was definitely missing those days at home with Sparklegirl, playing ponies. Originally, I was thinking seriotype, but that all changed after an extra-long bedtime last night. I was a little overtired by the time I sat down to paint, so instead of a seriotype, I chose simple skittles in the Princess Celestia color theme.

This weekend, I'm sure we'll be playing a lot more ponies at Chez Sparkle, and hosting some tea parties on the MLP app. All while watching My Little Pony. I think we're a few episodes in to Season 4? Is it wrong to admit that I'm loving watching it with her? I'm amazed at how much kids shows have changed from when I was little. And maybe a little jealous. But it is fun sharing something with her that I loved playing with when I was a kid. What are your plans? Is your kiddo into MLP? Let me know in the comments!

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.
