Happy Halloween!!!

I swear this is the last post for today!!! Well, we'll see ;)

I just had to show you what mani I'm actually wearing today. I work at a bank and this year for Halloween we can dress up as whatever we want because we're having an good old fashioned Halloween party :) I absolutely LOVE Halloween and costumes so can you guys guess who I'm going as today??

Yep that's right, today you can call me Mrs. COOKIE MONSTER :) I'll upload a pic of my costume once I get around to actually taking some pics lol! 

I love the way this mani turned out which is actually surprising since I did it at about 11 last night -_- 

Are any of you guys dressing up today? What did you dress up as? 

**UPDATE*** Crappy Iphone pics but here's my costume :)

Thanks again for reading guys you really make this blog so much fun to write!!! I hope you all have an awesome Halloween!!! :)

TIHC Day 31: Recreate your favorite from another challenger

Well hello again! :)

S the final challenge of the TIHC hosted by Lacquer Dreams is to recreate your favorite mani from another challenger. I knew exactly what I wanted to do ever since I saw the gradient that Naomi did over at Nai's Nails. I knew that this would be the one I would recreate and it looks like some of the other ladies had the same idea! ;) You can see her amazing mani HERE. I'm not going to lie hers is wayyyy better then mine but I had a lot of fun recreating it :) Take a look! 

Colors used:
- Finger Paints Paper Mache
- Sinful Colors Black on Black

I was pretty proud of how these turned out but make sure you go check out Naomi's original version!! :)

So what do you guys think??

Good morning all you lovely people!!

So as many of you know Sandy is here in all of her infamous glory -_- Yesterday we were out of power for most of the afternoon and night. I realized I had a challenge to post for today so I decided to paint my nails by flashlight yay!!! NOT! :) So I do apologize that these nails aren't up to par with many of my other manis but come on I painted them by flashlight! LOL :) By the time the power came back on it was wayy too late to redo them so you guys will just have to deal =P Take a look! 

Colors used:
- Sinful Colors Black on Black
- Sinful Colors Slate
- Wet n Wild Sunny Side Up
- Pure Ice Wild Thing
- Black Acrylic Paint
- White Acrylic Paint

I wanted to write Trick or Treat on my ring finger but I just couldn't do it by flashlight so I just wrote T -o- T instead I still think it came out cute though :) 

So what do you guys think? 

Thanks for reading and the other challengers are below make sure you take a look! :)

I'm praying all of you readers in this area affected by Hurricane Sandy are staying safe!!

HNAC Day 28: Halloween Characters

Hi guys!

So we are nearing the end of both of these challenges... seeing as Halloween is only 3 days away! I have to say I'm going to miss having challenges to do every so often because they really pushed my creative-ness and made me paint things I never would have thought of painting before! I can't wait to get into another challenge soon! I can guarantee I'll be doing a Christmas one :)

Anyways, todays prompt for the HNAC hosted by Glitter Obsession is Halloween characters and I have to say I was pretty stumped. Like I said before I'm a self-confessed weenie and don't watch that many scary movies and I wanted to do something different. So I did what anyone would do in this situation.... that's right I Googled it :) One of the first pictures that came up was THIS one and I knew I had to try to recreate the little Dracula on my nails! I decided to just put him on my ring finger because I figured it would be too much on all of them. Take a look :)

Colors used:
- Sally Hansen Heart of Stone
- Sally Hansen Unbreakable Heart 
- HITS Hefesto
- Sinful Colors Black on Black
- Sinful Colors Slate
- Black Acrylic Paint
- White Acrylic Paint
- Green Acrylic Paint

I finally caught the elusive Dracula on camera! Whoever said vampires don't show up on camera doesn't know what they're talking about ;) And I just love his two different sizes eyeballs :)

So what do you guys think?

Thanks for reading and don't forget to check out everyone else's Halloween characters! :)

I feel growed up!

Good morning guys!

Today I have what I feel is a grown up mani ;) A couple of days ago when I did this mani I decided to take a little time and just pamper my nails because I've been painting them so often. My nails were pretty gross O.O they were all stained and uneven and my cuticles were a MESS! So I moisturized and filed and buffed and well, you all know the rest. After I was done they looked like a million bucks :) So I decided not to just paint over them again and instead did a simple white french tip. Unfortunately you know I couldn't just stop there ;) So on my ring finger I did some stripes and rhinestones! But overall I think the look is simple and beautiful! Take a look :)

Colors used:
- Finger Paints Paper Mache
- Kiss Black Striping Polish
- Kiss Silver Striping Polish

So what do you guys think? I have to say I felt so pretty after these were done!

Thanks for reading! :)
