I took my last manicure and added a fun fall stamp using bundle monster plate BM-S206.  I actually layered a couple images using Bundle Monster Straight Up Black stamping polish and Square Hue red Campo San Moise.  Every nail is different, love these fall story nails.  AWE NUTS Mr Squirrel is my favorite!  I did add a matte top coat to finish.

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.

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!

Eck spiders!!!!  I am super scared of spiders, so this is a perfect Halloween mani for me.

My two identical nails are my index and middle.  For these I used glitter base Square Hue Night Fever.  In black I stamped on spiders from MM11 Messy Mansion plate.  Then I used Wet n Wild Floral Support a jelly red over the top of the stamp.  These are the same polishes I used on my thumb but I used a Bundle Monster black widow stamp instead from bundle Monster BM-XL208.

My ring and pinky fingers have a Square hue black base called Iron Horse.  On my ring I added Night Fever glitter and stamped on a white spider web from Pueen Halloween Party 01 plate and a black spider from bundle monster plate BM-013.

On my pinky I added another spider web and spider from BM-H07.

The glitter glitz with the spiders is a fun twist on a scary Halloween mani.

This is what happens when you can not decide on a single color or finish ❤ I love having multi colors and textures/finishes on my nails.

For this look I used Zoya Storm on my thumb and index fingers.  Storm is a black holo polish; GORG!!

OM pinky I used Zoya Imogen as stated on the Zoya.com website “Imogen by Zoya can be best described as a black crystal Magical PixieDust with holographic hex glitter, the perfect complement to a brighter shade or an accent for nail art”  YES!!

OM Middle and Ring fingers I used another holo color, this one is a Julep–it is called Stephanie.  Stephanie is a cherry red holo polish; trust me this is a must have she is soooooooo beautiful.

I just love this combo, hope you like it also 🙂

Zoya and Julep HOLO

I have a fun colorful skittle manicure to share with you all today.  This manicure is a perfect example of what happens when you get a new polish line and can’t decide on any one color.  The majority of these colors are from the 2016 Zoya Sunset collection.  This color combo makes me think of California sunsets and palm trees <3.

Here is a list of the colors I used to do this look:

From thumb to little finger I used these five colors Square hue St. Lucia, Zoya Cam, Zoya Dixie, Zoya Brynn and Zoya Liv.  Really love this summery sunset look.

Happy 4th of July!  I have a super festive manicure to share today.

I started with Square Hue Stars as my base white polish.  This off white creme has a shimmer finish, it is a real pretty base for my nail art.  Using Square Hue Bird Fling I added red to my tips using the dry brush technique.  Basically you get the brush real dry and brush on your color, it gives a worn distressed look.  Over that red I added some Square Hue holo pink glitter that I LOVE called Fireworks.  This glitter is heaven in a bottle.  Plus it looks amazing over the red

Using a Fingerpaints electric blue called Magritte’s Masterpiece I stamped on some random fireworks images from Bundle Monster plate BM-S211.   I really love how this turned out.  I was a bit skeptical at first but it really came together.  The Fireworks glitter really sets this look off.

Hope you all have a fantastic holiday!

Merry Christmas Eve friends!!  I can’t tell you how excited I am for this weekend.  It has been a great day so far; snuggles on the couch with my cute little family.  Now I am just getting settled in my mani cave to watch the movie The Holiday and stamp over my matte green nails.

But first I wanted to share my Christmas nails from last week.  I loved this look so much that I wore it all week.  That has to be some sort of holiday nail record for me.

Colors used for my look are:

Square Hue hot stuff red called Bird Fling on my thumb, index and middle fingers.  This might be my new favorite red creme.  It goes on like a dream and is oh so high gloss, love it!   My Ringer finger base is Zoya Genesis as state on Zoya Website Genesis by Zoya can be best described as a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish – designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust! Such a perfect base for Christmas nail stamping (ignore my shrinkage–I have a love hate relationship with seche vite fast dry top coat).  My littlest fingers are China Glaze This is Tree-Mendous, a lovely green/gold micro glitter that dries a lot like a pixie dust would.

About the nail stamping:

On my thumb I stamped on an ugly Christmas sweater image from Bundle Monster plate BM-S215 using Konad white.

On my index finger I did Candy cane stripes from BM-022. ❤

On my middle finger we have Rudy; used BM-Ho1 with Zoya Desiree and of course I dotted on a red nose using the red previously mentioned above and some black eyes.

And there you have it.  Random skittle Christmas nails.  I got lots of compliments on my nails at my new job; they are starting to figure out that I love nail art 🙂

You guys have a joyous holiday.
