Halloween MADNESS!!

I usually leave the painstaking nail art for holidays and special occasions. Halloween seems to be the holiday where people go completely bonkers for spooky nail art. I love seeing all of the different ideas and themes people come up with.

This year I decided to do a skittle mani, if you will, featuring some spooky Halloween fun!

I started with a base I thought would go with all of the ideas I had. I chose to put Picture Polish Aurora (GASP!) over a medium purple jelly.  The effect of these together is perfect!

I used acrylic paint and a thin nail art brush to paint on the black cat, haunted house, bats and ghost. This was the first time I did something this detailed on my nails (without using a decal or stamping).  I have to say I was quite impressed with the result.  I know with practice I will gain better brush control and be able to do even more.

We would love to see your Halloween nails!! Please post them to our Facebook page so we can see your masterpieces!

Happy Halloween!

I'm A Rock Star Baby!

You know that feeling when you think about a mani and then you do it and it's EXACTLY what you hoped it would be??  That's what happened today! I couldn't be more in love with this mani and the color combinations.

I got a few basics from NailVinyls. Here I used the large chevron. These vinyls are so much better than the paper stickers version I've tried before. They stick to your nails smoothly AND they remove without smudging. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking to create easy nail art.

I started with a base of Color Club Halo Hues Harp On It (THE BEST DAMN HOLO THERE IS HANDS DOWN). After I applied the vinyl down the middle I added the other polishes, OPI Onyx and Models Own Polish For Tans Flip Flop.

This mani is majorly eye-catching! I think I will try something similar but with gradient colors!
