Fishbowl Friday 068 // Simple

Happy Friday guys! How good does it feel that the weekend is here and the weather is fiiiiinally starting to warm up? Sooooo good, right? The prompt I pulled for this edition of Fishbowl Friday was SIMPLE. Pretty open ended, but I settled in on just one nail polish in my go-to favorite color. Pink.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Rainbow Honey Le Marguerite Rose
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I know I have said it at least a few dozen times before, but I'm pretty sure this time I mean it. I have found the most perfect hot pink nail polish. Okay, well technically speaking, it actually found me.

Le Marguerite Rose was one of the polishes in my April mini mystery bag from Rainbow Honey. I picked the prompt and opened up the bag and knew that I had to use it immediately.

What's so special about it?

When it comes to hot pink, I am typically drawn to more blue-toned pinks. But, if they're too cool, they really don't go well with my skin tone. At the same time, I like warmer toned pinks, but if they're too warm, they register as more of a red, which I'm not as into. Somehow, and I'm not exactly sure how, Rainbow Honey managed to make a pink that's practically neutral. It really walks the line. But what really tops it all off is a slightly jelly finish that gives it incredible shine.


Sadly, my nails are a little bit of a mess right now. While opening a toy for Sparklegirl tonight, I managed to chip two nails. Boo. Needless to say, my nails are in need of some serious TLC. I'm talking mani bomb, lotion, cuticle treatment, and filing. And maybe a papaya mask on my face while my nails soak...

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

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon. That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY . This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's? Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones.
