I made my first Halloween mani today and I'm really liking it. I don't celebrate or dress up for this because it's not a holiday where I live but I'm excited to paint my nails in all sorts of spooky ways.
I used LA Colors Force as base color since it's an orangy metallic color I've been wanting to try and the BM 13 for the designs.
What do you think? Have you started planning your Halloween manicure yet?
Please leave a comment. :-)
It's been a really long time since I posted something in my blog, I had a lot of things going on and I couldn't find the time or the inspiration to write a post but I've really missed it.
For today I have an old swatch I made but never posted from the LA. Colors Color Craze collection called Transformer.
It's a Jelly finish with some blue and red glitter on it, it is really hard to photograph the glitter on this but trust me it's there.
I also have a pic of the bottle where you can see the glitter.
I like these polishes cause they are really inexpensive and you can find great colors for your collection.
Let me know if you like it?
Last month I had to take the bus, actually 3 buses, to go home after work (I always catch a ride with my bf) and right in front of the last bus stop I found this make up/ beauty store and I ended up buying a lot of nail polish cause I was there everyday.
They only sell cheap brands like Kleancolor, L.A colors, that sort of thing but still I found a few polishes to add to my collection.
First off I bought 4 Kleancolor nail polishes. I was really surprised to find a holo one (score!) which is basically what kept me going back during the week.
From left to right I bought:
*Leaves Jingle -> A forest green jelly like base with green glitter.
* Holo Chrome -> An amazing holographic purple color.
* Sparkle purple -> A clear base with purple glitter.
* Pink Lady -> A barbie pink with silver shimmer.
Then I got 2 Milani nail polishes which I totally love:
* Gold Digger -> A Coralish pink with tons of gold shimmer.
* Golden Girl -> A hot pink with tons of gold and pink shimmer.
I also got 2 glitter top coats from a brand named Adoro. They don't have names just numbers so from left to right I have number 26 and 15.
I found the LA Girl Metal collection which came out last summer I think and fell for it immediately. Initially I bought like 3 bottles but then I had to go back to the store and get more.
From left to right: Metallic Olive, Deep Sea Mica, Alkaline Blue, Trilogy, Iron Red, Brass, Gold Plated.
And last but not least, L.A Colors Color Craze in Mega Watt, Seashell, Goddess, Transformer, Electrified.
That was it. What do you think? See any colors you like?
I have a really cute design for St. Patrick's day.
I used a few things which you can find detailed below.
For the french tip I cut the edge of a masking tape with a nail clipper to have that rounded edge and then I put it on my nails as a guide.
I know they already sell the french tip guides but as usual I didn't have any and had to come up with my own solution.
This is a pic of the things I used for this design, from left to right:
- Seche Vite top coat
- LA COLORS Color Craze in Treasure Island (French Tip)
- LA COLORS Color Craze in Current (Base Color)
- China Glaze in Passion (Big Clover Stamp)
- Kleancolor Nail Duo in Incredible (Small Clover Stamp)
- Bundle Monster plate BM 03, this has the clover designs.
I hope you like the design. If you have any questions just let me know.
Have a fun week!
