13 Days of Halloween Recap

 Press Sample

 Before I move on to November and basically show a boatload of swatches of collections that I have putting aside because HALLOWEEN, I just wanted to give a recap of all my Halloween manicures this month. I truly enjoyed sharing all these arts and getting my creative juices back!


13 Days of Halloween: Celestial Halloween Glitter Gradient

 Partial Press Sample

Here we are. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! I have to say, I felt meh on nail art and just nails in general. I broke my nail and it took like 6 weeks to grow back. I forgot how to swatch. I just was eh. But this challenge that I only challenged myself for LOL really gave me my much needed oomph back and I loved doing all this art! And for today, I literally went into left field for my Halloween manicure. I wanted something soft and sophisticated.

13 Days of Halloween: Cat 'O Lanterns

  Press Sample

It is Mischief Night! Tonight is October 30, and this is my 12th nail art for Halloween. Stay tuned tomorrow for my final Halloween look. This one took me quite a while because I added so many components: gradient, stamping, handpainted. Not sure why I had so many components, but I just like could not stop haha.

I cannot believe we are at the finish line for 13 Days of Halloween. I also did not think I would make it. haha. But I am hopeful I can complete my goal. Today was inspired by yet another Halloween card I saw. Card companies are so creative! A ghost holding a candy corn...what is more Halloween? By the way, are you a candy corn lover or hater?

13 Days of Halloween: BπŸŽƒπŸŽƒ! Nail Art

 Press Sample

Orange and yellow together just scream pumpkins and Jack O’Lanterns and spoooky lit within.  When was the last time you carved a pumpkin? It is definitely been some time since I have actually done the carving but I always grab a pumpkin for decoration. I have been really feeling stamping this season so what originally planned to be fully handpainted, had a last-minute change and I love how it came out.

Today’s mani was a hugeeeee fail.  I removed nails, redid them. Smudged them. Smooshed them. Even so, I wanted 13 Days of Halloween and although my ideas did not come out, I am still sharing the concept so you can do a better job!

13 Days of Halloween: Iconic Halloween Stamping over Halloween Neons

 Press Sample

Good day all. I love all of my Halloween stamping plates and I really love the images that have a mishmash of all Halloween icons. I have a few different versions but in the end I chose one that has the most diversity in its images. this plate has a witch, pumpkin, ghost, the broom, a cat, spiderwebs, pitchforks, owls, and more. Seriously, what more can you ask for?

13 Days of Halloween: Spooky Green Monster Nail Art

 Partial Press Sample

So last year I got a bag of Hershey kisses for Halloween that had the cutest motives as the rappers. They were green, blue, purple and had spooky characters on them. Of course I saved one of each to eventually do art. I noticed a lot of my manicures are orange and yellow-based so I wanted to mix it up and do something with green.

13 Days of Halloween: Pumpkin πŸŽƒ Spice Latte Halloween Nail Art

 Press Sample

Hello everyone and welcome to my first Halloween nail art. If you were new to this blog, I am totally obsessed with Halloween and always do tons of nail art for my favorite holiday. I always try to do at least 13 Halloween manicures because that seems like the most festive number for this holiday. I initially had hoped to maybe do more but with my bad nail break I did not get to start wearing my nail or as early as I’d hoped. But I’m so excited to kick off these 13 arts (hopefully) with my literal pumpkin spice lattes.

Pusheen Calendar Series: I'm Busy

Press Sample

Another Pusheen coming at you! And since I will have October posted this month, I’m back on track. This month’s look is Pusheen just being too busy, which we all can relate to! Although I wish I could use the excuse of video games, snacking, and relaxing as my "I’m too busy to do anything else" excuse.

Stella Chroma Fall Puns

Press Sample

Last month, Stella Chroma released a brand new fall cream collection. Of course, I had my horrible nail break so I put it aside until I could get some growth. It disappointed me because I was so excited to play with these cremes and now that I have swatched them, I can’t wait to do art with them. So if you have not already grabbed them, take a look at my swatches and ask yourself what have I’ve been waiting for?
