daniPro My Girl

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
5 Coats daniPro My Girl*
1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover*
1 Coat Seche Vite

This is the last of the daniPro polishes I received to review, and it was definitely my favorite. Pink is by far my favorite color of nail polish, and hot pinks like this... well, I have so many variations and I can't resist adding new ones to my stash.

In case you missed my reviews of First Kiss and Forever Girl, 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.

Before painting, I thought that My Girl would be pretty opaque, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it was another crelly! Of course, that meant painting a few more coats to get what you see in the photos, but it was definitely worth it. Crelly finishes are probably my second favorite after jellies, but when they're in my favorite shad…

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

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…

It's been a little while since I reviewed a polish via press sample here. This brand was a little too interesting to pass up, though! According to the press release I was sent, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The polish was even recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health. 
daniPro polish features a 5-free formula that does NOT contain formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, TPHP, or Toluene. It is also infused with something called Undecylcenic acid, which is commonly an active ingredient in medications for skin infections, but it hasn't yet been proven to be effective in treating fungus on the nails. 
Chemical analysis aside, this stuff didn't smell nearly as potent as some polishes, which is always refreshing. Formula-wise, it was pretty standard, not too t…

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.
