Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

by - 7/01/2016

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... 

China Glaze Violet Vibes Seriotype

China Glaze Violet Vibes, SinfulShine Konstellation, Essie Leggy Legend, Pure Ice Get in Line, Pahlish Autumn People

Neon Purple, Gold, and Turquoise Nails

Multiple Finish Seriotype

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 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!!!
