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!

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
