Fishbowl Friday 067 // Orly

Can I get a Happy Friday? It's a little hard to believe that Spring is just hours away from arriving! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for warmer weather. Sooooo ready. When I picked the prompt last night and drew ORLY, it was either go bright or pastel. Bright won, and then I just had to add in a little sparkle for good measure.

Polishes Used: 

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Orly On The Edge
1 Coat Pahlish Autumn People
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

How awesome is this layering? Part of me doesn't want to take it off and part of me wants to build a seriotype on top of it. Difficult choices, huh? 

I can't say that I have an overwhelming amount of ORLY polishes. But I do love most of the ones I have. Out of all the mainstream brands, they're one of the trendiest. I feel like they do a pretty good job of pushing the envelope with colors and finishes. 

On The Edge was part of Orly's Adrenaline Rush Collection for Summer 2015. Out of all the shades, this one definitely stood out. It's a really gorgeous statement polish. 

We all know that no Seize the Sparkle look would really be complete without a healthy dose of sparkle, right? So, I added a coat of Autumn People from Pahlish. I really like how the gold and pink multichrome contrast with the purple. And then some of the duochrome flakes flash green and it's all over. Lurve. It.

Fishbowl Friday 066 // Wet n Wild

For those of you who were waiting for this post last week, I apologize! I've been pretty busy lately and then there were a few technical issues! Everything is sorted out now, tech devices are fully charged and I've got a new mouse. So. How about a WET N WILD mani?

Wet n Wild A Latte Love Layering

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Wet n Wild A Latte Love
2 Coats Wet n Wild Stream of Consciousness
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

When I pulled WET N WILD for a prompt last week, I didn't have a specific shade in mind. Now, I do have a few polishes from Fall that I still haven't tried. But with all the warm weather, I'm really feeling the pastels and brights again. No dark or vampy shades this time!

A Latte Love is probably my favorite neutral shade ever. So much so that I own three bottles of it. And I've begged to have it added to the core collection. Quite shamelessly. It's a really great neutral that's kind of gray, but a little beige at the same time. I even love it on my toenails.

When the Silver Lake Collection came out last Spring, I rushed to find all of the pastel shades. It was a pretty sweet collection. While I don't think I ever wore Stream of Consciousness on its own, I thought it would look neat layered over A Latte Love. It's a super sheer shimmery slightly pink polish. Two coats over A Latte Love added just the right touch of sparkle with a hint of pink.

With all the changes that have been going on, I've definitely been having trouble fitting in blogging the way that I used to. I'm hoping over the next few weeks that I'll be able to get back in the swing of things. I believe I have 4 or 5 manis photographed and waiting to be edited. So stay tuned, and thanks for sticking with me. I appreciate it!
