Brain & Brain

Good Morning & Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I’m guessing everyone celebrated Halloween on Saturday, I did at least. This year I went as a box of wine and my BF went as a beer keg. We both actually dispensed booze! Check them out HERE.

Today I have my last Halloween themed mani. I’ve ~loosely~based it off a phrase from the original Star Trek Series. The episode is called ‘Spock’s Brain’. My dad and I often quote ‘Brain and brain! What is brain’. So I thought it would be cool to do a brain mani.

Products used:
Base: OPI 4 in the Morning, Barielle Big Apple Red, Color Club Tangerine Scream and Electro Candy.
Brains: China Glaze White on White & MoYou London Festive plate 44

I started off with the red, orange, pink and black polishes. I dabbed them on a large stamped head, stamped the head once on my silicone mat then dabbed on my nails. It turned out wonderful but boy oh boy there was a mess around my cuticles.

I used the white polish to stamp the brains.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I know I’m still tired today from all the fun this weekend. Have a great week!

My First Nail Video! 📹

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I’m super excited for today’s post because I’ve been working on creating nail videos and today I’m going to share my first one! I love creating roses and it was one of the first things I tried to create when I started out blogging so I thought it apt to be my first video tutorial.

But first, a few photos.

Products Used:
Base: KBShimmer Fax of Life
Roses: Barielle Big Apple Red & Fifth Avenue Boutique, Color Club Wild Cactus & China Glaze White on White

My video tutorial can be found on Instagram, Facebook and Google+ because the file is too large to post to my blog. I’ve tried to make it a smaller file but the results would take away from the video. I’ll add the links here to the video when I post it.

I’m super excited and nervous about posting my firs nail video. I’d like to do more. I hope everyone will have a positive reaction towards it. The whole video was 2 mins but I’ve sped it up so it only is about 27 seconds.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my video!

Bones and Pretzels?!

Happy Mani Monday!

How was everyone weekend? I had Saturday all to myself but I was still feeling sick so I did things where I could sit down. I folded laundry sitting, took a shower sitting, and then took a nap. Very productive weekend for me haha.

Today’s nail post is dedicated to my BF! After I do my nails I always show him and ask him what he thinks. This time he thought I had tiny pretzels on my fingers!

Products used:
Base: Zoya Honor
Stamping: China Glaze White on White & MoYou London festive plate 44.

The skulls kind of look like pretzels.. if you’re squinting. I think the skulls are super cute. I topped my nails off with Orly Big Matte Top Coat.

Thank you everyone for stopping by. One week left till Halloween! I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
