Happy Halloween!!!!

Hey Dolls:) So I have 3 Halloween mani's to share this Halloween night!!! These are the mani's I have been rocking this past week:)  Hope you like them a much as I liked rocking them!!!!

A Halloween Silhouette
Background is Chirality Soska:) The Moon is a combo of Zoya in Cam, Thandie, and Pippa, details are basic black and white cremes!

Witches Feet
Zoya Tilda and China Glaze Mix and Mingle are the bases for this mani:) add in some black and a tiny bit of neon orange for the details:) 

Pumpkin Tips 
I used a straight black creme base and added the pumpkins with Zoya Cam and China Glaze None of your Risky Business, with the stems in Zoya Tilda:) 
All of these are freehand art and took a good little while to complete:) but I challenged myself this week and had a lot of fun with it!!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Water Jelly Mani:)

Hey Dolls!!! So it has been 2 whole weeks since my last post and unless you have been hiding under a rock, I'm sure you have heard about the devastating flooding Hurricane Matthew brought to Eastern NC:( We were very lucky here at my house and didn't get any damage but I know several people who lost everything... The waters didn't get quite as high as they did with Floyd back in 99 but it did bring up a little bit of PTSD for me (my family lost everything that year in the floods). So I wanted to do a water mani because water is beautiful and life giving. But it is duplicitous in its destructive nature.
For the base I used China Glaze Let's Jam the perfect lilac with a rich blue shimmer. I smashed on China Glaze Ride the Waves and Zoya Paloma with some saran wrap. I cleaned up my edges and added a coat of SV to finish this off!!
Both polishes I used to smash are jelly finished as to give the feel of water:) To me its like the river at sunset with the purple, blue and pink light reflecting back at you!!!  Next week is a prep for Halloween and Oh boy do I have some fun manis to show you!!!

Sharpie Nails with Double Stamping!!!

TGIF Dolls!!!! Wow what a week it has been:) and here comes the weekend with the threat of Hurricane Matthew!!! But as of the latest forecast it looks like the effects will be minimal here in eastern NC:) So the mani I have for you today is a "sharpie mani" with some double stamping:) I used a basic white creme as the base. I them diluted some sharpie squiggles with rubbing alcohol and painted a random design. I then did a black stamping using konad black and BM-313, then a silver stamp of the same pattern just slightly off from the black:) Finished it all off with a coat of SV!

The only thing I will do different next time is amp up the intensity of the colors in the base but otherwise I LOVE it!!! It looks like magical fish scales!!!! Hope you have a great week end!!!
