Blood Red Nails

Hello again! This post is on how I decided to do my nails for Halloween. Since I was going to have my face all done up I really didn't want to have anything to distracting on my nails plus I thought it would clash with my costume if I had on some kind of design. Anyway, I settled on red nails but didn't want them to be bright red nails so I layered two KleanColor polishes and the result was this beautiful blood red looking color. I'll have to do swatches of these colors individually soon because they are both really pretty.

Happy Halloween! Dia de los Muertos Costume!

Hello everyone!!! So I hope you all had a great Halloween weekend. Mine was so much fun I went out everynight! Anyway what I'm most excited to show you is my costume, as I mentioned I was a Dia de los Muertos skeleton and each night I did the designs on my face different. For inspiration I just googled images and took from several ideas and mixed them up to create my own looks.

First look:

Second Look:

Third Look:

To create these looks I used Halloween make-up paint and to apply I used a make-up sponge and make-up brushes. For my hair I did to braids and then pinned them up with several bobby pins and then pinned  on the flowers. Hope you liked my costume! Happy Halloween!!!

Im going to be a Dia de Los Muertos Skeleton or also know as  La Catrina. Anyway enough about that now onto my awesomely scary nails!!!

Black Widow!

Hello! Today I have for you guys another Halloween Mani! I got the idea to do a black widow design because we found a black widow spider in some plant on my porch! It was super scary but my friend David helped kill it and its eggs, so hopefully we won't find anymore.

Mummy May I Gradient Tips

So after sponging on Lubu heels on my tips in my Vampire Mani I got the idea to do the same thing with Mummy May I. I love the way this looks and it doesn't necessarily have to be a Halloween mani but works well for it to in a more subtle way. For a swatch of Mummy May I click here.

Halloween Stripes

Todays Halloween Mani is just some simple stripes in traditional Halloween colors orange, purple and black. Only my left thumb says Trick or Treat because I knew there was no way I was going to be able to write it on my right thumb but I still liked the way it looked with only that thumb as the accent.

Texas Rangers Mani

Sunday my bff Nora came over to get her nails done. She wanted to do something for the Texas Rangers who are apparently in the World Series and doing pretty good. Me not being into sports I had to google them to find out what the team logo looked liked. I decided to do the T logo as accents and then Nora settled on a triangle french tip for the other nails.

Hello everyone! Yesterday my friend Joslyn and her sister Julie came over so that Julie could get her nails done. Its her sons first birthday party this weekend and it's Super Mario themed so she wanted to have matching nails to go with it.

Vampire Nails

Hello Everyone! Todays post is another Halloween Mani. I wanted to do Vampire nails so this what I came up with. I did lips with fangs as my accent nails and on the rest I sponged on Lubu Heels onto black for a vampy look. Its too bad my nails are so short right now because I think this look would have been even better on long nails. Oh also before I forget to mention it I added a new label "Holiday" so that you can easily find any Holiday themed mani.

Chunky Holo Clover

Hello everyone, hope you all are having a good weekend so far. Im super excited that its already October because I love Halloween, which also means I need to get started on doing some Halloween manis. Anyway, today I have for you all Chunky Holo Clover layered over white.
