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.

Last but not least here are my kitty claws nails–which went perfect with my simple kitty costume.  I love this matte cat claw look.

 

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!

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 a perfect mani if you are having a hard time saying goodbye to summer.

I finally ordered Zoya summer 2016 NEON collection.  YAY!  Took my long enough but I got them on a BOGO sale, SCORE!

ZOYA BOGO haul

This mani started with white undies of course as recommended for all neon polish to make them really POP.  Then using my makeup sponge I applied a Zoya neon and nude polish to get this look.  My neon is called Bisca and my nude is Cala.  

I really love a nude nail with a pop of color on the tips.  It’s like a french with a TWIST or as I say “Funky French”.

What do you think would you do this combo?

I had a lot of fun creating this look.  This is another 3:2 mani.  For my 3 I used Sinful Colors Demin n Bling KARGO.  This is a textured blue denim polish which dries matte ❤ I did use a clear top coat on my pinky for some shine.

For my 2 I created some dry marble decals on my bundle monster mat.  Used SC Kargo and SC Trend Matters Angel Buttercup.

Once my decals dried using a clear top coat I applied the decals to my nails, trimmed access and cleaned up with a small paint brush and acetone.  Love this technique; I have not mastered the water marble so this is an easy way to get that look without all the hassle and headache.

I really love the final result ❤  Still drool over matte textured polishes 🙂

Hey all!  I have a fun neon look to share this time.  All the neons I used this time are China Glaze polishes.  Quick neon tip: first I started with white undies so my neons would have that neon POP.

To get this look I did a Tri-sponge technique alternating three neons on every other nail.  Color combos are as such:

Pinks/orange/yellow called Love’s a Beach/Japanese Koi/Celtic Sun                                                                 Greens/Blues/Purples called In the Lime Light/Turned up Turquoise/Dune Our Thing

Basically I sponged on the tri-color combos and alternated nails; just that easy.  I am really happy with how the neons blended together on each nail.  Then I added a funky stamp from Bundle Monster + Sloteazzy BM XL210 blogger designed images.  I love how the swirl looks on the neons; super fun for summer.  I also used a matte top coat to finish.

Hope all your neons are popping!!!  ❤

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!

Happy almost July!!  I have some easy but fun RWB nails to share tonight.

I started this look off by using a red Zoya America on my middle finger, blue Zoya Ling on my thumbs and pinky and white Zoya Purity on my ring and index fingers.  Love this alternating RWB combo, it is so cute.

But I did add some Finger Paints Sparkle top coat over the white which has some fun holo looking bar glitters that reminds me of fireworks.  I did not stop there then I stamped on some white stars using Bundle Monster plate BM-021.  Really love this patriotic look, it is simple but super cute.  Perfect for the upcoming festivities.  Hope you all have a great week!!
