A few weeks back I had some time to kill so I attempted to water marble.  Colors I marbled are for a fun fall look are:

  • VINTAGE OPI Burning Love; a metallic orange
  • Finger Paints Fall-ing for you; a metallic teal
  • Square Hue Baby,Baby,Baby; a metallic grape (which appears lighter in the marble)
  • Square Hue Sandstone; a shimmery duo pink/gold hue
  • My undies is Sally Hansen Petal Pusher; a nude pink

To simplify the marble process I used a Pueen Latex tape barrier…ahhhhhhMazing!  Total time saver.  I feel like my marble turned out ahhhhh so so.  I have done worse; I have also done better.  I guess I need to keep practicing; with the latex barrier I may be so inclined to do so.

Happy Halloween!  WOW!  This month has flown by…I haven’t even had time to share all my ghoul Halloween nails.  Unfortunately, I have a sick kiddo home from school today so I have a moment to summarize what I have failed to share with you all this month.  I had some pretty fun manis this month;  I love Halloween nail art.  Wish I had more time to share with you all.  If you follow my insta you would have seen them all in real time.  So this time rather than going into detail I will just share the photo and if you want to know specific colors and stamping plates just ask in the comments and I will share.  I feel like this makes more sense rather than sharing them all in a separate blog posts – blowing up your inbox.

MEOW!!

 

Which look is your favorite?

Hope you have a great holiday—sadly I’ll miss October as it is my favorite month but bring on November!!

Happy polishing!

This manicure started as a nude/neon gradient.  Using Zoya Cala and China Glaze Celtic Sun(neon) I did some sponge nail art, I thought it turned out super cute.  A nude nail with a pop of color on the tip is always fun.  And neon is a perfect summer hue.

After one day of my nude/neon I just had to add a stamp.  Using Bundle Monster plate S110 and Zoya Liv an orchid purple polish I stamped on random images over my nude/neon.  This really turned out cute.  I felt like “OM” yoga nails; this look is very zen.   Honestly I really had a hard time taking it off because it was cute.

Hello polish lovers!  Spring is coming soon, yay!

Wanted to share this ultra subtle glam look:  China Glaze sand nude Sorry I’m Latte with Feel the Breeze light pink neon tips.  I did this using a sponge, this is my favorite polishing technique.  Love how these turned out.

Hey polish lovers!

I have another Vday mani to share with you this time.  When you see it you will say Ooh Lala 🙂

First I started with Zoya Brittany on all my nails.  Brittany is a rose mauve creame color which if you apply no top coat it dries in a Satin finish.  The satin finish is a semi matte look, which is very pretty but you won’t see that satin look in my final pics because I added a top coat after I did my stamping.  I picked Brittany because I wanted a softer pink nude base so my lip smacking stamping would really pop.

For my stamping I used Bundle Monster plate 303 and XL 153.  My stamping polish is China Glaze Dune Our Thing which is a bright berry pink.  It stamped really well.  Also used my go to Konad black.

On my littlest nail and ring finger I just did one lip smack.  On the other three nails I did the multi lip smack.  And for fun on the middle and thumbs I added Ooh Lala image in black.

I really ❤ love ❤ how this mani turned out.  Super cute for a Valentine themed look.

 

Happy polishing!  Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Hello November goodbye October.  I totally missed the end of October mani’s.  I missed about three Halloween festive nail looks.  I think in the next week or so I will do a throw back to October entry, lol.

Tonight I have a beautiful fall like water marble to share with you.  I really love this color combo.

My underwear color is China Glaze Innocence a pale nude pink perfect for a blank canvas.

Colors in my marble are:

OPI NYPD Beat a deep beat red and Burning Love a shimmering gold orange.

OPI Nicole colors Here we Kome A-Karoling a deep plum purple, Keeping up with Santa a foil like red and Deck the Dolls a metallic teal.

The effect is oh la la love this!!  My favorite colors are Burning Love and Deck the Dolls!!

Enjoy.  And if you haven’t tried water marbling I suggest you do try it, it is so fun to create new looks with different random colors.  It takes some practice and patience but once you master it you will be so happy!

Happy polishing!

Hello polish lovers!  I hope you are having a fun October.  My next mani should really get you in the spirit for some bloody horror.  These are my fear nails; I am scared of blood, ticks, spiders, and death oh my.

I started with Square Hue Desert Storm as my base color. Desert Storm is a high gloss beige nude cream color.  It goes on amazing.  It is perfect if you love beige nude nails.  I cannot wait to try this one again for a non horror look.

Then using an Orly blood red called Grave Mistake I stamped on blood splatters using bundle Monster plate BM 416.

Then using Konad special black stamping polish I stamped various fearful images onto each nail over the blood splatter using Bundle monster plate BM 421 and Messy Mansion plate MM11.

 

I have some creature words on my middle, ticks on my index, caution tape on thumb and coffins on my ring finger.  On my pinky I decided to add another blood splatter using a darker red called Naughty and Nice by China Glaze.  This gives it a crusty dried blood look. To finish this fearful bloody look I used a matte top coat.

   
 I think these look bloody perfect for October!  

Really gets me in the Halloween spirit.  
Happy polishing!
