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 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.

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…
