Fishbowl Friday 071 // White

Happy Friday! Well, almost Saturday, but still! So, when I pulled WHITE for my prompt last night, I had a little bit of an idea of what I wanted to do. And I'm really happy with how it turned out...

SinfulShine Kovet Seriotype

SinfulShine Kovet Saran Wrap Mani

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulShine Kovet
Essie Leggy Legend
Pahlish Autumn People
Pure Ice Get In Line
2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

For the past two weeks, I've been obsessively using Leggy Legend and Get in Line together. Oh, and I've been putting just a smidge of Autumn People on top, because I still can't quit that polish. I'm not sure why I didn't buy a backup or five.

Get in Line is a sheer turquoise shimmer that was just made for layering. It's subtle at some angles, but when the flash catches, it's strong. Combine that with the super pigmented metallic copper of Leggy Legend, and it's all over. What's especially cool is the fact that the combo works well over light and dark colors, and looks a little different (but still fabulous!) over each!

The WHITE polish I used for my base is none other than Kovet from SinfulShine. Part of the Kylie Collection, it's a white crelly with turquoise shimmer. If you're on the lookout, be wary, there is another white polish with gold shimmer in this collection called Koko-Nuts. I almost passed on Kovet until I picked it up and saw the flash. I had to have it!

I know I've said it before, but when it comes to SinfulColors, shimmer is their thing. They put out a lot of interesting combinations on a consistent basis. Some of the colors from the Trend Matters Collection are just gorgeous.

For this seriotype, I started out with 3 coats of Kovet. I did wait a few minutes in between each coat to help with streaking. Not exactly necessary considering I was planning to cover most of it anyway, but still. After that, I painted on Get in Line and dabbed randomly with saran wrap. I followed up with a coat of Leggy Legend and Autumn People, dabbing each immediately after putting it on my nails. Two coats of clear coat helped mesh all of that together and blur the edges a bit. Finally, I locked everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.

All in all, I really like how this seriotype turned out. It has a little bit of a marble effect to it, which is pretty cool. I'm definitely keeping this on for at least another day. As far as the weekend goes, we're not going to talk about the fact that it's been raining since March. We're just not. I'm planning on a relatively chill weekend. Hope yours is too!

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
