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.

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 coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I added random strokes of Get in Line to each nail, immediately dabbing with saran wrap. I used the same process with Leggy Legend, then used a cosmetic sponge and Autumn People to create a glitter gradient at my tips. Once that was finished, I added a coat of clear to seal everything in, and then a coat of Seche Vite to lock it down.
I'm not sure how many polishes I ended up purchasing from the various Kylie collections. These were pretty easy to find, and there are still a lot at my local Big Lots. As far as the limited editions after this collection, those were a bit harder to find. I did recently pick up some of the Kandee Johnson colors, and I'm super excited about that collaboration. And the shades I've worn so far, I've loved!
I'm not sure where I see this blog going in the future. I've debated that many times in the past couple of months. I've been posting a lot on Instagram in the interim, and part of me thinks that's the future of nail blogs. I've also mulled over the idea of moving my writing over to Tumblr, because I've really enjoyed writing about Pretty Little Liars there! But then I sit down to type out a blog like this that explains exactly how to recreate a mani, and I remember why I love blogging!
I'm going to try and get back in the habit of writing at least once every two weeks, maybe every week if I can. Sound like a plan?
In the meantime, what would you like to hear about? Are there any collections coming out that I've just got to know about? Do you have questions? Let me know in the comments!
