Fishbowl Friday 065 // Zoya

Hey there! No, it's not Friday and I know it's been forever. I'm still getting into the swing of a new schedule and all that. This particular prompt was actually pulled by Peanut last week, but I didn't get around to actually doing a mani for it until this week. So, here we have ZOYA nails...

Zoya Jelly Glitter Sandwich

Zoya Muse Jelly Glitter Sandwich

Zoya Muse Layering

Zoya Binx Layering

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Ridge Filler
2 Coats Zoya Paloma
1 Coat Zoya Muse
1 Coat Zoya Binx
1 Coat Zoya Paloma
1 Coat Zoya Muse
1 Coat Zoya Paloma
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

When I ordered Zoya Muse, I was well aware that she was the blue sister to Binx. But I can't really say that I thought much about layering the two of them together. Or creating a jelly glitter sandwich with Paloma. But that's what this turned into!

And I really like it!

Both Muse and Binx contain translucent and opalescent hexagonal glitter. The shades of glitter vary slightly between the two because of the different base coats. Layer a coat of Zoya Paloma on top and that glitter turns a smidge warmer. All in all, I'm really pleased with how this turned out. It makes we want to try a similar layering with some of the other Zoya jellies in my collection!

So far, everything is going awesome with the new job, and don't worry, it's not like I haven't been painting my nails. My problem has been figuring out when and where to take pictures. But I'm working on it! So, when I have that all settled and I'm a little more used to my schedule, the posting will probably return to normal!

For now... it's been a good weekend so far. Got a little cleaning done today, more cleaning for tomorrow, and hopefully we'll be able to get outside if the weather is nice. All in all, I'm so ready for Spring. And I know I can't be the only one!!!

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…

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.
