More Halloween nails!! IKR shocker. I am going to miss the month of October!!
This time i did all my nails orange…except my ring fingers. The orange I got last year from Walmart its a brand called SP or Salon Perfect Pumpkin. Love this orange. My accent finger is Sinful Colors Inkwell. I did stamping in the Sinful Colors black and white.
Stamps I used are a ghost, witch hat, pumpkin n vine and bats. Stamping is so fun but I still find it a bit challenging.
I ❤ the orange, black n white color combo!!
Hope everyone has a great Halloween.

More Halloween nails… The only reason I am not taking this off is bc they are ugly. Reminds me of ugly zombie nails.
Got this Julep glow in the dark polish on sale the other week, yeah I know I am a sucker for a sale. It was buy one get one free. I choose the black crack for my 2nd bottle. Got them just in time for Halloween.
They are Julep’s GITD Sofia and black crack Ursula .
Sofia has some green glitter in the mix. It’s not very pretty but it glows all though not that well or for very long.
Only a couple more days left til Halloween, I intend to do at least one more Halloween mani.

Feeling kinda corny tonight!
I have candy nails, candy corn that is…
I love candy corn. I hated it as a child but now I love it. I have tried really hard not to spoil my clean eating with candy, but I can’t lie I have snuck a piece here and there this month 🙂
So most tutorials on candy corn nails I see tape used. I am no good at using tape, I have no patience for it. Plus I kind of like the uneven lines…looks more realistic.
So I started with a yellow nail, Finger paints Art nouv-yellow. Needed 2 coats.
When that was good and dry I did my orange, Sinful Colors Courtney Orange. Covered about 3/4 of the nail. BTW I love this orange!
Then to finish my candy nails I did a white tip Sally Hansen White on. Make sure you wait until the white is completely dry to apply last top coat; you may notice my lack of patience in my pics as my white streaked a little bit, drat!!
Last year when I did these I had a shiny top coat. This time I used my Essie matte to finish. That really sets off the candy look.
They almost look good enough to eat.

More Halloween nails!!
This time I started with an orange nail, Sinful Colors Cloud 9. A pretty pumpkin orange with a gold shimmer in the right light. I ❤ this color. Picked up a few weeks ago from Walgreens.
I was thinking about doing simple black tips but I settled on stamping instead.
I used four different Halloween stamps… A spooky house from BM-305. I also used the pumpkin patch stamp from this plate. Then I did a simple jack-o-lantern from BM-222. And a spooky ghostie from BM-223. I just stamped with Wet n Wild, wild shine black polish.
I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. It’s very simple looking but I think that is okay sometimes. I think my favorite stamp is the single jack-o-lantern. My daughter likes the pumpkin patch stamp on middle finger the best.
We are getting closer just 10 days left til Halloween. I will be so sad when this month is over 😦

Surprise Surprise another Halloween mani.
It’s also try it Tuesday. Trying out a Julep polish I got in my last maven IT girl box. It was an add on, an orange crackle.
I call this Haunting Sabrina!
The black is China Glaze Haunting. A black polish with a silver metallic shimmer. The Julep polish is called Sabrina.
I am not a huge crackle fan but Julep may have turned me to the dark side. This crackle went on easy and cracked up nice.
All in all I am pleased….now I can’t wait to try the other crackle I got in my Julep Maven box, Glenda.
What do u think have I cracked up for liking crackle?!?!?

I did these last night.
I was waiting for some sun today to get some great pics and all the sudden it popped out 🙂
This polish is another from the Wet n Wild Pick Your Poison collection called Venomous Vixen. This a slate color. It really needed 3 coats for good solid coverage. This is a fun poison!!
Once again I had to glam it up with my new glitters I got at Michaels last week. I used a recollections glitter called Rust. I applied clear coat to the nail tip and added glitter. Then of course once again I applied my Seche Vite for a gorge glass like top coat.
The result is very Halloween like…I ❤ it. It looks like a pumpkin puked on my Vixen.

I did these last night.
I was hoping for some sun today to get some great pics…but no such luck. It was a dreary fall day in Iowa. Oh well.
This polish is from the Wet n Wild Pick Your Poison collection. I picked up the whole collection last week, I just couldn’t pick just one 🙂
I used Poison Ivy. This a witchy dark green almost black. It’s a great formula, only needed just 2 coats for great coverage. I definitely love this poison!!
And you know me I love to glam it up and Saturday I picked up some new glitter at Michaels that I just had to try out. Martha Stewart crafts iridescent glitter Black Licorice. I applied a clear coat to the nail near the cuticle and added glitter. Then of course I applied my Seche Vite for a gorge glass like top coat.
The result is just witchy…I ❤ it. I mean how can you not love glitter? Well the application is a little messy but totally worth it!! These pics don’t do the mani justice, but you get the idea.
