Orange You Glad Halloween is Almost Here?

How do you come up with a good blog post tittle for a manicure inspired by the colors black and orange?  You go the cheesy route.

This design is from the vault, but there was wear on the tips and I felt like I could do it better, plus it was the best way to know what polishes I actually used.  Plus it is perfect for the Bundle Monster Halloween challenge!


The polishes I used were China Glaze Liquid Leather, Julep Mariska, Tia, Konad Special White, and Special Black.  The plates were Bundle Monster BM-411 and Betina B-10.


I layered two thin coats of Tia over LL because I was a bit impatient to wait for opacity since it is a jelly (Which I will explain in a post reviewing my October Julep box).  Mariska has some shimmer to it, which you can see in the bottle, but the shimmer gets lost on the nail.  I will say it is a neon, albeit subdued, so you do have the wretched neon formula to deal with.  But it is a pretty color, so I deal with it.


Well I hope you all liked this manicure.  I know there are not as many pictures as usual, I accidentally deleted one off my SD card. . .  Opps!

Tootles!

Be Sure to Bring Your Death Certificate

Have you realized I love Halloween yet?  You haven't?  Can't you read between the lines?

So for the Bundle Monster Halloween Nail Art Challenge I did this. . .


The challenge is Trick-or-Treat and the best part of Halloween is being scared. . . and costumes. . . The best thing about Halloween is costumes and being scared.  Okay, so, that means that this manicure is meant to be scary.  Boo!  Did I get you?


I think I might a bit tired, so that me be why this post it bit all over the place. . .


Back to the manicure!!   I used Julep Mary Lee, Maybeline Color Show Clearly Spotted, China Glaze Millennium, and Konad Special Black.  The nail stamping plates were Betina B-19, Bundle Monster BM-413, and BM-H07.


I hope you didn't mind my weird post and you liked the manni!

Tootles!

Arrrgggggghhhhhh!

You know I love Halloween and Halloween polish.  When I saw China Glaze But Of Corpse I immediately thought zombie.  I have been trying to figure out how to do a zombie manicure with this and when I saw that today's prompt for Bundle Monster's nail challenge I came up with this.



I really like the design, but I wish it was a bit more involved than just stamping.  I may have to play with this polish again. . .


The stamps I used were GALS GA33, Bundle Monster BM-H08, and BM-411.


I am not a huge fan of textured polish, but this one really is fun!


Here is what the polish looks like in the shade for reference.


Hope you all love it!
