Fishbowl Friday 060 // Newest Untried

Happy Friday to you! There's always a big sigh of relief when the end of the week rolls around and it's time for the weekend. When I pulled this prompt last night, I actually forgot that I had even created it. So, it was a nice surprise, considering my January Mystery Bag from Rainbow Honey just arrived! So here it is... my NEWEST UNTRIED polish... (well, one of them, anyway!)

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Rainbow Honey Planet M
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Planet M is one of two polishes in my Mystery Bag this month. It's a blue-toned raspberry pink shade that I just love! And yes, while I do have a lot of this shade in my stash, the finish is what makes Planet M unique. Tons of tiny little glass flecks, mainly in pink, but I caught some violet and gold flashes in there too. It's a little more amped up than your average shimmer polish.

The formula on Planet M was really good. Just a smidge thicker than the creme polish formula, but that's because of the glass flecks and doesn't affect application at all! I did find that I had slight patchiness at two coats, so I added a third just to make sure everything was covered.

In addition to Planet M, my Mystery Bag also came with Caramel Forest, a really unique glitter topper. It doesn't really go with Planet M all that well, so I'm still trying to figure out what I could layer it wish and how to do it!

I can't say that I have too much in the way of plans for this weekend. Maybe a little shopping. Definitely a lot of playing and snuggling with Peanut. Whatever your weekend plans look like... I hope you and your family have a great one!!!

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…
