Halloween Mini Series Nails #4

This is the last halloween mani that i have done. I hoped to have done a few more but i liked that i got 4 done! This mani is frankensteins! I think what i have come up with is really cute!

I started with 4 coats of Sinful Colors Irish Green! Yes 4! It could have taken another 1 or 2 but i was doing art so i didn't bother. Hair and eyes (black part) were done with China Glaze Liquid Leather and China Glaze snow for the white part of his eyes. Stitches and mouth were done with LA Colors striper polish in black. 

Outside, Shade.

This one is my favourite! Baby Frankenstein!
(Sorry about the bloodspot thingy on my pinky, It's been 
there for about a week, it's under the skin and i don't know how to get rid of it?)

Halloween Mini Series Nails #3

Another Halloween mani for you tonight. I have worn this all weekend and i really quite like it!

Base was China Glaze Liquid Leather which we all know is a straight black creme. I then did two thin coats of China Glaze Ghoulish Glow (Glow in the dark) polish. I forgot to take a glow pic :( but it turns out really well! I stamped with Konad special White polish (for all stamping) on the ring finger, the ghost image from BundleMonster plate 223. On the thumb i stamped the spiderweb and spider, both from Bundlemoster plate 13. I then got my dotting tool out and did a red dot on the bum of the spider with China Glaze Scarlet.

I love the little ghost, he's so cute! haha

Bye for now,

Pink Ribbon Day!

Today is Pink Ribbon Day. So i decided to do something on my nails for it!

The pink i used on all nails is Color Club's scented Yum Gum. It is a light bubblegumish pink almost neon like! Smells...just like bubble gum but not overly sickly bubblegum.
The black base on my ring finger is China Glaze Liquid Leather. And the ribbon CC's Yum gum also and i used a dotting tool for that!

Outside Shade.

Hope you all enjoy your week!

Halloween mini series nails #2 - mummy nails

Today's nails are mummy's!
I have seen lots of these around and thought I would give it a try! I did these freehand but you could use the konad plate S06 and the image that looks like a wrap to get the same effect if you don't think you can freehand it. I used China Glaze Snow as the base colour then striped the wrap lines with a black striper polish. I then made a little black box (where his eyes are) then used a dotting tool to dot white polish for eyes then a slightly smaller dotting tool to do the red (China Glaze Scarlet) pupils. Then topped with a fast-drying top coat!

Didn't do too bad on the right hand =)

Halloween Mini Series Nails #1

Even though here in Australia we don't celebrate Halloween, i didn't think we should miss out on the fun of doing some cool Halloween Manicures! So to kick off my Halloween Mini series nails i give you this very simple and quick mani.

This is China Glaze Fortune Teller from their 2009 Halloween collection. A black creme polish with small, medium and large different shaped orange glitter. I then thought it was cool to mattify it with Essie's Matte about you!

Hope you like!

Bathurst Nails!

Sorry it's a weekend too late but this is what i wore last weekend when i went to Bathurst to watch the V8's! I am a ford supporter through and through! Although ford didn't win, we still had a great day and i love these nails that i came up with!

All nails except ring accent nail i used OPI's DS Magic. Not a real ford blue but i didn't have one and this is what my partner picked out. A real ford blue is now on my wish list haha!

The base of the accent nail was China Glaze Millennium for the silver car they drove that weekend to promote Jim Beam Black (label) and i used my black striper to draw the number 17 then outlined it in the white striper polish.

Jim Beam racing/Dick Johnson racing (DJR) have two cars so i obviously wanted to do the other car on the other hand! Their second car is Gold to promote their "Bonded" (label) Jim Beam.
So the accent i used Ulta3's precious and again used my black and white striper polishes to draw the number "18"
I quite like how this turned out and i decided to wear it until we flew back home (2 days later) where i was then itching to take it off!

Sorry & a Franken!

Sorry i haven't blogged in a few weeks. I have just been busy and i just haven't felt like blogging. I haven't painted my nails much lately either but even when i did i didn't even photograph them! Not sure what was going on with myself but i just didn't have any motivation! Winter is a big draw back for me full stop in no matter what i do i just have no motivation in winter! But now it's heading to warmer weather and longer days i am hoping i can get out of that and get more motivated to do.... well just anything really!

Anyway, Today i am wearing a franken i made probably about a month ago! I know, that's how slack i have been, waiting until now!

This is called "lollyshop" I get the weirdest names in my head! So this stuck! haha. This is a deep Raspberry with silver holo glitter!
I'm not sure on exact quantities on this but i had about 3/4 of a bottle of Ulta3 Pink Colada, poured a little bit of Ulta3 Party Shoes in to tone it down a bit and then added clear almost to the top. Then i got a bit carried away with sparkles and added way too much Silver Holo Glitter (from Coastal Scents). I put so much in that this was a one coater and a top coat eater uperer! Despite the bumpiness, I don't actually mind how it came out so i'm not going to say that this was a fail. I think next time less Holo Glitter and probably more Clear? Does anyone think that would work? Last photo blurred to show a bit of Holo. No sun AT ALL today so was hard to get!

Also, on a side note. I'm heading to Canberra for a few days over the weekend (along with going to bathurst to see the V8's on Sunday!) so i will have one or two days of shopping in Canberra while i'm there. Does anyone know of anywhere good to shop? I will be on the hunt for nail polish obviously and want to bring some goodies back! 

Bye for now.
