Pumpkin Killer

I wanted to hop on the Twilight Blood train- just to see if I could do it. I watched about 5 tutorials and read about the same amount in tips for this technique. This is the finished product! I wanted to do a Halloween theme since Wednesday I will be Lindsay Lohan. We all know she had that special mani when she was in court and I will be copying that! Enjoy!!

Fall into Autumn- Halloween

Image
These weeks got flip flopped for some of us, but for the most part, it makes sense. So I decided to go for the soft cartoony look, as I often do. I also incorporated the help of my son as what to design on each finger. The thumb to pinky is: bats, jack o lantern, spider and web, Frankenstein, and mummy. I think these are super cute!! I actually love this mani!! I would do these again for actual Halloween, but I am going to be Lindsay Lohan. We all know she had a different mani I will be sporting. Enjoy! Trick or Treat!!

Truly a black and GOLD day. It's been a long while since I have incorporated a true gold into my Steelers Day let alone a crackle. I feel like crackle came in strong and left the same way. I still enjoy a good crackle when needed. Lets hope the power of the gold helps us get a W tonight. Goooooo Steelers!!!!

Psi Guy!! My New Glitter Creation

Image
This is my new creation for the fraternity that I advise. I have been their on-campus advisor for almost 6 years now. I have a very unique position because I am one of the very few females advising male fraternities. I absolutely love those guys and the group they are a part of. This group is a huge reason I continue doing the job that I do! This I for them!! Love you Alpha Phi Delta- Psi Chapter!

Fall into Autumn- Autumn Ombré

Image
After some confusion and debating about possibly changing my mani, I am sticking with the ombré. I love the leaves in the fall and these colors represent those colors. I did an ombré with the ombré (going to opposite way) tips. Enjoy!!

Ohhhh Pretty

So I went to Walgreens while waiting for my son to finish ccd and I "just wanted to look" at polish. Oh course I ended up buying 7, but I found this beauty in the CLEARANCE section!!!! I loooooove it!! I really like metallics and I wanted to try a bronzish color. This is what I found, again, on clearance!! I decided to add a little Hit Polish to it because I love her polish and I haven't had indie glitter on for quite some time. Enjoy!!

Sinful Colors- Super Nova
Hit Polish- Treasured

I looooove all the pumpkin art I have seen and I have come to the conclusion that my fingers/nails are too small to do all these beautiful elaborate designs that I see. So, I only put 1 little jack-o-lantern on each nail. Enjoy!!

Brit Invasion- L'Oreal

Image
I got this shade for $1.50 at Ride-Aid and it was love at first sight!! I really like L'Oreal colors. My top 5 include 3 L'Oreal shades! So I had this on originally on Wednesday, but then I found out it was Pittsburgh's "Anti-Bullying Day" and I had to switch it all to orange to support the cause. So I finally got to try it today. I was going to stamp an accent nail, but its just tooooooo pretty to so that. So sparkly!! hopefully on my way to work I can catch a good shine picture. So without further ado...
