Halloween Marble #2

Hi Everyone,

Happy Halloween!  I attempted one more Halloween Mani.  I wanted to do a marble with different Halloween colors.  I started off with Black, Purple, Orange, and Green but having the black and purple was a bit overpowering.  Only the pinky finger has that combo. I removed the black after that.  I wiped away some of the paint with remover and then added glitter. I also added a Halloween montage to my you tube channel.  Let me know what you think!  Have a great day!

Nightmare Before Christmas Nails

Hi,

I was gonna wait until this was posted on Fab Ur Nails for the Halloween Nail Art Weekly Challenge, but I'm on a time schedule.  So, I'm gonna go ahead and post it.  I decided to attempt a Nightmare Before Christmas mani.  I think it came out pretty well.  I'm also including this creepy hand I tried to do on a nail.  It's okay. It was really challenging though.  Let me know what you think.

Bloody Halloween Nails

Ok, so I did these nails really quickly. I didn't clean up and then I took them off to work on my Nightmare Before Christmas Nails (coming soon).  So, excuse the mess.  Unfortunately, I didn't really check my pictures before I wiped it off and I didn't get very good ones.  But, at least it gives you an idea right?  I'm not usually so sloppy. I'll just blame it on the cold meds.  Hopefully by Thursday of next week, I will have the contest ready.  I honestly realized that the person mistakenly told me 12 polishes when there were more (although Snow already exists) so I was going to try and stop by there tomorrow and see if they had the extra ones. If not, oh well, you'll get most of them.

GettingNailed Contest Entry & Tis the Season news

Hi,

Squeal..... So, I went to my beauty supply to buy the Awakening CG polishes, and of course they only had Ick-a-bod-y (although they promised me they had more in storage). But he, of course, whips out a full Tis the Season China Glaze display.  They had just got it in and I was the first to partake. And of course, I debated, have my followers been naughty or nice....that verdict is still out.  But, I will be giving the whole set of 12 polishes away.  I'm a sucker for making you happy and I'll just assume you haven't been too naughty!  It will be my last giveaway of the year.  So, make sure you check back. I'm a little under the weather with a sinus thingy right now, but hopefully will get it all posted by the weekend and it will run through most of November!  Just thought I'd give you something to look forward to!

Now, I entered GettingNailed trick or treat contest. 

She wanted us to be very creative about what was in our halloween bag. So, of course, mine had zombies in it that bit me (how rude).  Here is my picture and the video sketching out how I did it.  Hope you enjoy!  Let me know in the comments!  It's really nice to get the comments by the way.  I spend a lot of time creating and it's nice to get feedback or suggestions.  So comment when you can! I do answer back!

Autumn Contest

Hi,

I did a nail design for Konad Nails autumn nail contest.  They turned out okay.  I actually used acryllic paint on one of the stamps (you can see in the video).  I don't stamp alot so I'm a bit out of practice.  But, I do like the sponged affect. It really gives the nails dimension.  Let me know what you think and go vote for me if you like mine the best.

I had a wonderful weekend in Cambria, CA. It's a small artsy town right next to Hearst Castle and Morro Bay on the coast.  The weather was beautiful and I really needed to get away.  We have gone there every anniversary for the last 4 years.  I would love to eventually move down there!

More Halloween Ideas

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is starting out nice. We are celebrating our 13th anniversary (last Mon) this weekend (details to follow).  I thought I'd give you a few more ideas for Halloween.  Please let me know if you have any questions about them. And of course, write me a note to let me know what you think! If you have an idea and are not sure how to execute, leave a note as well.  If you click on the picture, it will be a bit bigger. Sorry for the glare. I hate taking pictures of black nails. Any suggestions on that would be greatly appreciated!

Halloween Mani

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend.  I did a pretty simple mani this time. I tried to do something everyone can do.  I got the stickers at a beauty supply but I've seen lots of them around Sally Beauty and even Target.  If you are not used to drawing, you can utilize those  I just used a nail art polish in orange and made stripes and on alternate nails used ghost stickers instead of drawing the ghost.  But, you could do headstones, pumpkins, and cats (so many possibilities just be creative)!  Let me know if you have questions!
