Midweek Manicure // Halloween Nail Art

Here’s what I’m wearing on my nails for Halloween this year:

Skeleton Halloween Mani

The black is China Glaze Liquid Leather, and I painted a Jack Skellington inspired skelton head on each ring finger with some white and black striper polish.

And just for fun, here’s a photo from the archives of last year’s Halloween mani:

Candy Corn Halloween Manicure

I striped on the candy corn colors, and then used my Bundle Monster nail stamping kit to stamp on the witches!

So, is anyone going out for  Halloween tonight? Did you already celebrate lastweekend? We were expecting trick-or-treaters tonight, but the event has been postponed until Friday because of Hurricane Sandy.  D and I went to a Halloween party a few weekends ago and it was tons of fun. This year I dressed up as a retro housewife (I guess?). I basically just focused on hair and makeup and used a bunch of stuff I already had for my costume, including my cute polka dot dress. Then I proceeded to take a bunch of instagram photos :)

Happy Halloween!


Midweek Manicure – Easter Ideas

I have a really good idea in mind for an Easter themed manicure that I’ll share at the end of the week. But while I’m figuring out when I”m going to set aside time for that, here are some past manicures I’ve done that I think would be nice for Easter. :)

The picture quality is not great because they’re mostly cell phone camera shots, so bear with me.

A makeup sponge and two contrasting pink shades.

For this I used a light base coat then used my bundle monster stamp kit to stamp on flowers in a random pattern all over. I actually wore this for Easter last year.

I used a water marbling technique to do this. You can check out how to do it here. This would be really nice for Easter using several pastel polishes!
