Can you believe it is already November?!
I’m also surprised I was able pull off so many Halloween manis! I’m so proud of myself! Today I have a simpler look. I’m not too sure what is going on with the lighting on my middle finger but it sure does look weird!
Base: OPI Reykjavik Has All the Hot Spots
Drip: Cosmetic Arts silver glitter polish, no name
To create the free-handed sparkle drip, I used a thin brush. I started off blobbing the sparkles at the bottom of the drops and dragging them up till my cuticles. It turned out great.
Thank you everyone for stopping by! I’ve tried my hand at filming another nail video, if all goes well, I will be posting it on Monday along with my blog post. Have a great weekend!
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!
Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope everyone is passing a wonderful holiday. Today I have autumn themed nails.
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!
