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 Halloween!

Good Morning and Happy Halloween to Everyone!

This weekend was so much fun! I had a Halloween party and everyone came in amazing costumes! My BF and I went as Tron. My Mom and Dad came as a Nutcracker & a Pirate. AMAZING!

Nail Time! I had plain gel polish nails over the weekend for my tron costume. So last night (while watching Walking Dead) I added a ~marble~ effect to my nails.

What I Used:
Base: Bundle Monster Gel Polish Cocktail Dress.
Marble Effect: Orchid polish Snake Charmer and China Glaze White on White.

I did some dry brushing with the Orchid polish. Then with a small brush I created white lines through out. I dipped that same brush in acetone and drew back over top of the white to get a faded marble look.

I loved the way this turned out. I know they are not very Halloween themed but this is all I could come up with last night last-minute. I still love the look.

Thanks everyone for stopping by. Please be careful tonight if you are out with children for some trick-or-treating! Have a wonderful Halloween!
