Fun with Halloween nail art

Happy Halloween everyone! Granted its almost over though:)) I was so upset because I didn't get to go any parties, hand out candy or even get to dress up for work:((( I wanted to something fun with my nails do I went for the classic monsters. Left hand is Bride of Frankenstein and Frankenstein. Right hand is Dracula and Wolfman. I love my bride, she's do cool. I'm super proud of the Wolfman. I did a brown crackle from Kleancolor and it fell off. Yes flaked and fell of my nails. So I covered them with Buried Alive from the Dark Shadows Orly collection. Now he looks furry from the mixture of the two. Im so sad Halloween is over. Time to start planning for Christmas!

SH salon effects -Spun for you

Hey there! Last day of vacation always sucks! I really do not want to go back.

Spun for you is one of the colors I picked up at Five Below for $3. The previous color I used was horrible. I guess I just got a bad one. This one on the other had came out awesome! You can't see it in the picture but it has a very small amount of rainbow sparkle which makes me love this more. I'm hoping if I stop by again in the next couple of day, they will have more. Thank you Sally Hansen fit making these kick ass nail strips. I love them so!

Some things I've run across this week

Cool thing about working in a new city is all the Walgreens they have and all the next stuff I run across. Sadly, I can't purchase them though. Anyway, wanted to share:)
The Impress nails were so cool! I guess Disney is really going all out on the Villains stuff, which is great. Would have liked to have a bit creativity on the line though. The Halloween ones are pretty wicked. Fantasy Makers Crackle sets are pretty neat. Good price at only $4.99 too. I'm sure they will be on sale soon too.

Catch up post!

I wanted to post a couple pics of manis and a mini haul that picked up today. I always have the intention of posting daily but with my new job I'm driving 3 hours a day and working 10 hours. It's wearing me out real quick. Anyways my first was a kinda Halloween mani with some striping tape I got off eBay. It's the first time I had ever used striping tape and it was fairly simple. I used Wet n' Wild Fantasy Makers purple potion and orange, green and purple tape.
The second is the all time favorite SH nail striped in Fishnets. I picked this one and another at Five Below for $3 rack a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure if they were not stored properly or what but these sucked! They broke or didn't peel right. I finally pieced some together to get them to look hall decent. I'm hoping the other cot doesn't do the same.
Lastley, I was doing my normal rounds of town checking out new polish and when I stopped at Walgreens, I was pleasantly surprised to see the SH complete salon manicure polishes were on clearance for $1.89!! Most of the colors were gone, but I did manage to grab a couple cool ones. Grey on Grey, Midnight in NY and, Cherry, Cherry, Boom, Boom. I also stopped by the locally owed beauty supply shop. Sadly, they didn't have much for polish and I only got 3 and some silk wraps (really interested in see how they will work) Kleancolor Black Hole, Ruby Kisses Yellow Bikini and Red Romance. I really need to change my Fishnets mani! Going to try a Halloween marble next! Have a great weekend guys.

CG It's Alive!

I'm so in love with color! This has to be one of my favorite Halloween colors. China Glaze released this last year in their Halloween line. It had some unique colors for once and super great names ! This always reminds me of that kinda cheesy evil baby movie from the 70's 'It's Alive'. It's hard to tell in the picture but it has small glitter and big chunks. It's not as green as it seems in the picture either. It's Alive! Is more of a army green. Really cool color and something that the Swamp Things girlfriend would wear :))

My first water marble!

Whoo hoooo! I'm so proud of myself. I've been dying to try this. I always see these amazing water marbles on other ladies blogs and I'm just so jealous and unsure of my abilities. I finally sat down last and tried it out. I did a pink one for Breast Cancer Awareness. I used all OPI colors. Pink of Hearts 2010, Pink Friday, & Japanese Rose Garden. Once I sat down and took my time it was pretty simple and fun! Just make sure you use room temperature water. If not, it will so not work.

Orly- Lunar Eclipse

I've been wearing this mani for a couple days. I just love the beautiful blue and purple. This was one of 6 from the fall 2010 Orly Cosmic FX line. All the colors are do amazing. I didn't get to pick up Rocket Science or Halley's Comet but luckily I got the rest. Lunar Eclipse didn't really grab me from the bottle, but once on the nail, amazing. You can wear it with one coat and leave it opaque or put 3 or 4 coats for a beautiful deep sapphire blue with purple shimmer.

My first flock

I bought the flocking months ago and never used it. Micheals had a 6 piece set for $4.99 on clearance. Last night I was pulling out my blues and pinks in polish ( only doing blue, pink and Halloween this month) and came across some teal blue flocking. My base is Sinful Colors Savage, which is not only a good dupe for OPI Fly from the NM collection but just a beautiful, creamy color. I made the mistake by painting my whole hand then applying the flocking. Didn't stick! So I reapplied one finger at a time, and it worked out ok. I think the color has turned more of a white now, but still pulls off a cool effect.

great causes you can support in October

Hello, hello. Still have the same SH nail stickers on today and they are going strong. Been waaayyyy to busy to change them but that will change soon. October is the best month in the year for me. Mainly Halloween but many great causes we can support and spread awareness of with our nails! We all know it is Breast Cancer awareness month (pink), but also it is National Anti-Bulling Month (blue). Domestic Violence Awareness Month (purple), LGBT History Month, and on a silly note, National Squirrel Awareness month:) If you are looking for specific day celebrations, Wikipedia is a great source and (most are just fun days to do:))
