FaBOOlous Nails 👻

Happy Mani Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My BFs sister came home from her trip to Cuba engaged! I am beyond happy for her! I went to the airport with her brother (my BF) and their mother. I greeted her with a giant pickle (her nickname) with a ring on it. (Photo will be up on my personal IG later today).

Nail time! More Halloween nails today. This time I did some reverse stamping. It mostly worked. But similar situation as my pervious sunflowers where the reverse stamp was very sticky and wouldn’t line up properly.

Products:
Color Club Si Vous Please!, Pucci-Licious & a dark purple with no name. China Glaze Lotus Begin & White on White and OPI 4 in the Morning. MoYou London Festive plate 44.

I created the gradient using a makeup sponge. I’ve been using regular tape in place of a latex barrier as I am out of latex. The gradient turned out better than expected. I topped it off with a clear sparkly polish.

The reverse stamping turned out ok. I believe I can do better. I almost didn’t post these nails since I didn’t like the stamping But I do this blog to show the ups and downs so I felt like I should post it. I’m happy i did!

I’ve had 2 nights this week where I’ve been able to spend a few hours on my nails so I already have 2 more Halloween posts to share plus a tutorial. That’s right, I’ve made my first nail video! I’m super proud and I hope to share it next week! Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!

Batty for Halloween

Happy Thursday!

Today I’m starting off with a batty design for Halloween! I’ve been able to spend a bit more time on my nails so I even have next weeks post ready to go!

Products Used:
Gradient Base: KB Shimmer Hashtag You’re It, Kiwi Real & Shady Beaches. I tried using a makeup sponge for the gradient, like I do for most, but the colour was absorbed in the sponge and the silver holo flakes were the only thing on my nails! It looked crazy. I had to redo it and just blob the polish on. The gradient turned out perfect but it did take a bit longer.
Stamping: China Glaze Liquid Leather & MoYou London Festive plate 44.

The stamping went perfectly. I love how the gradient turned out.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Stay tuned for some more Halloween nails next week!

Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone is passing a wonderful holiday. Today I have autumn themed nails.

Products used:
Base: OPI This isn’t Greenland
Stamping: Bundle Monster collab plate with ellandish BMXL-201 & BM-S226, China Glaze Liquid Leather & White on White and Revlon Electric.

This Isn’t Greenland is a beautiful green! Such a perfect fall colour. I stamped the grid lines first. Followed by reverse stamping the sunflowers. I had a few mess-ups with the sunflowers not being quite dry enough or being a bit too sticky. Most worked, a small goof on my thumb but that’s all part of the nail painting process.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! Have a wonderful week and enjoy the rest of the holiday!
