13 Days of Halloween: Glow-in-the-Dark Ghosts

Partial Press Sample

Does anyone remember the excitement around Wet N Wild Tombstone polishes?! Because I would buy them every year! I haven't seen them the last few years. Have you? I'm wondering if I'm just missing them! Anyway, before indies, this and the pumpkin polishes were the most exciting Halloween polishes, so I had to pull one out. It was my first Glow-in-the-Dark polish and I'm excited to say that like 8 years later, this one still super glows!!

13 Days of Halloween: Halloween Leopard

Press Sample

I actually did Halloween Leopard last year but wasn't too thrilled with it, so I wanted a second chance! I think this year is still festive. It's fun to do Halloween manis without overtly always doing pumpkins and ghosts, so I think this is for people who want something a little more subtle.

13 Days of Halloween: Pumpkin Stamping

Press Sample

It's not Halloween without some pumpkins, and why not some pastel pumpkins?! I'm sure I'll be back with another pumpkin nail art, but I wanted to give this Born Pretty Stamping Polish called Pumpkin Fairy (how appropriate!) some love!

13 Days of Halloween: Halloween Ikat

Press Sample

I'm using my Halloween challenge to do some nail art I had wanted to do for a long time. Last year, I had Halloween Ikat on my to-do list but never got around to it. So I finally did it today! I didn't think I really liked how this came out, but then time made me wear it for 5 full days and I had tons of people grabbing my hands, telling me how much they loved it. Isn't that how it always goes?!

13 Days of Halloween: Blood Drips

Press Sample

Hey all! So I decided to try to do the 13 Days of Halloween, which I actually did last year. You can check out my recap of my Halloween looks HERE, and I'm excited to do it again. Instead of doing 13 straight days, I'm doing 13 days of nail art over the next few weeks. I'm also being a little bit laid back, and instead of a schedule, I'm just doing whatever Halloween manicures I feel like!

Alter Ego Falling Leaves Harvest Colors, Fall 2018

Press Sample

Autumn collections tend to be my favorite, when they are done right. Don't give me 20 vampy colors. Give me inspiration from nature and the beautiful surroundings of life. I love being outside in the autumn and I love looking at the beautiful trees in my area. Cynthia's newest collection has me getting all the leafy feels, and it's exactly what I want!

Hella Handmade Creations: Stella Chroma Queen Margaery & Girly Bits Celebrity Is, As Celebrity Does

Press Sample

Good morning! Today I'm sharing two polishes that will be available through Hella Handmade Creations October 14-21st. I decided since I had two polishes for the event, I would combine them into one post, especially since there's a time crunch and I'm working on a ton of Halloween post. Both Stella Chroma and Girly Bits are favorites of mine, and both creators are named Pam, and they are both awesome!

Stella Chroma Fall Mattes Falling Leaves Nail Art

I adore the new Stella Chroma Fall Mattes collection, and they begged to be in some awesome art together. I was really feeling autumn and trees and leaves, so that's what I went with. I love to do art with collections to see how well they coordinate and of course, I'm loving this collection!

6 Harts Life from Destruction, Disorder and Chaos, October Polish Pickup

Press Sample

Another Polish Pickup for you today and this time from Fifth Element. This is such a fun movie! I've seen it so many times and their costumes are super unique and fun. So I love that Courtney was inspired by Zorg's green/orange shifty outfit and made that her polish! This one has a cap, so if you want it, best to add it to your wish list before it goes for sale tomorrow morning!

Stella Chroma Playing with my Emotions, Smokey, October Polish Pickup

Press Sample

Polish Pickup is this Friday, and what better than a polish inspired by the movie Friday?! This polish is sooo creative, inspired by Big Perm...or Big Worm! I love how creative people got with the villains theme. I figured it would be the super basic villains. But I am totally laughing at this!

Leopard Nail Art with Morgan Taylor African Safari Collection

I couldn't imagine doing any other nail art with the Morgan Taylor African Safari collection that wasn't animal print. I think you know my love affair with leopard print nails. I'll say it again: I do not like leopard print designs anywhere but I LOVE them on my nails!
