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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
