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!!!



  1. Wow, now that is some layering!! Very nice!

  2. Thanks Arathael! Changing colors by layering is my favorite!

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

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

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
