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, Essie Leggy Legend, Pure Ice Get in Line, Pahlish Autumn People

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!

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…

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. I ma…
