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...
1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes
Essie Leggy Legend
Pahlish Autumn People
Pure Ice Get in Line
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 then add in some shimmer and glitter.
For these nails, I started out with 3 coats of Violet Vibes on my nails. Oddly enough, when I took these photos, I think I grabbed my bottle of Plu-rple by mistake. On top of that, I dabbed on a coating of Konstellation to darken things up a bit. Then came a coat of Get in Line followed by Leggy Legend. After that, a coating of Autumn People and some more Leggy Legend and Get in Line around the edges of my nails. I finished everything off with 2 coats of clear and a coat of Seche Vite for tons of shine.
I'm really stuck on copper, turquoise, and glitter in my manicures right now. I've done a bunch of different seriotypes in the past few weeks, but they all seem to fall back on that combination. Thankfully, I did put a bunch of nail polish away today, so hopefully that means a varied color selection as I search through my drawers for shades.
We. Shall. See.
At any rate, Happy Friday! Hope you have a great one!!!
