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!

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.
