#TBT - Fall Inspired Gradient

Here's a lil something new here: a #ThrowbackThursday post.

I did these nails on October 7, 2013. At least that's what the date says on the picture file.

I think at the time I was using Pink Armor as a base coat. Then I used Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Sunny Side Up for the orange and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Pumpkin Spice over that.

Posting a right hand pic just so you can see Pumpkin Spice in the shade. It's gorgeous and I keep reaching for it every Fall.

I haven't done much nail art at all since I broke two nails last month. Hopefully by Thanksgiving they'll grow out enough that I can enjoy doing it again. Till next time.

Happy Halloween 2014

Happy Halloween guys!

Today I've got some Halloween inspired nails. They're not super Halloween themed like the ones I did last year but more like regular nails with a spooky twist.

Here's my right hand, that hasn't been seen much on the blog lately.

I used Hot Topic - Matte Black and Wet N' Wild Fergie - No Place Like Home on the black & glitter nails, Wet N' Wild Mega Last - I Red A Good Book and a Kiss nail art striper in black on the plaid nails, the same matte black and KleanColor - Americano on the stud nails, and matte black for my black cats along with Sinful Colors - Snow Me White and a glow in the dark Pumpkin Polish in yellow for the eyes.

If some of these nails look familiar to you, it's because I redid the plaid design that I did here for Day 26: Inspired By A Pattern during the 31 Day Challenge. I wore the leggings that I used for my inspiration. Want to see how the outfit turned out?

You can probably spy my new iPhone. Yup, after being SO excited that I did Apple nails on September 9th when it was announced, I finally got one. These are some of the first pictures that I took with it and so far I'm really loving the camera.

These are the only Halloween nails that I'm doing this year. I ended up breaking two nails trying to open a box. I'm kind of bummed because I wanted to enter a gross nails contest for Halloween but after having actual bloody nails and having to cut them all down, I'm cool with it, haha.

Hope you all have an awesome Halloween!

Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hey guys! It's been awhile. I've been detoxing from the polish fumes after the 31 Day Challenge!

I'm back with pink nails for October's Breast Cancer Awareness month. My family, like so many others, has been affected by this disease, so I thought it was time for me to post my first pink nails.

I used Wet N' Wild Mega Last - Candy-licious and then did different designs using Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Tickled Pink.

This is a lovely color combo and represents a good cause. What's your favorite pink of all time?

#31DC2014 - Day 31: Honor Nails You Love

Is it really the last day of the challenge? Has this flown by for anyone else while simultaneously seeming like it would never end? Is this too many questions to start a post with?

For today, I was inspired by a picture I've seen around Instagram for a Cirque Colors contest.

I really loved these nails and they're similar to the shape of mine, so I decided to recreate them using colors that were as close as I could get.

I started by painting my nails with Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Black Creme then taped off with striping tape and did the inside part in Sinful Colors - Happy Ending to create the black outline. I topped that off with Sally Hansen Lustre Shine - Plume to give it a more duochrome shiny look. I peeled off my tape and topped it off with topcoat.

I did these while watching Pawn Stars and I must've watched at least 3 episodes. By the time I finished it was after 3am, and I was pretty tired, so I decided to leave them as is.

I think these have an antique look to them, but that really might be the Pawn Stars talking. Maybe I should go call a buddy of mine to check them out. ;)

#31DC2014 - Day 30: Inspired By A Tutorial

I can't believe we've reached the second to the last day of the challenge! Today's nails I did using a tutorial posted by Chelsea Queen here. I found it when I saw Chalkboard Nails' Day 14 Floral Print nails.

I used the same amount of polishes that Chelsea used in her video, just different brands. I started with a base of Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Black Creme and then for the flowers I used Wet N' Wild Mega Last - Candy-licious and Sinful Colors - Snow Me White. I blended those to get a light pink to highlight with. For the leaves I used Sinful Colors - Happy Ending mixed with white and then on it's own to highlight.

I really love these. I think floral nails are amazing because they look like fabric prints and look so complicated but really aren't hard at all, especially when following this tutorial.

#31DC2014 - Day 29: Inspired By The Supernatural

Guys, I've got a confession to make: I didn't paint these today. Nope. I actually painted these last year for Halloween 2013. I never posted them, they totally fit with today's theme and it's finally close enough to Halloween for me to post them, so here they are.

I got the idea for these because my cousin texted me a bunch of inspiration pics that she found. Little did she know that I'd end up not doing just one design, but every one! I added a few of my own too.

I won't list what polishes I used because I used way too many.

I told you that Jack Skellington would make an appearance sooner or later!

These are getting me into the Halloween mood even more. I don't have a cute pic to go along with these, so here's my newest freestyle that I just posted on my youtube. I used the beat to Eminem & Rihanna's "The Monster" so it goes along with these nails perfectly.

Been an admirer of Karloff & Lugosi
It isn't really that far off if you know me
And monsters make better company than the ones I meet
Approach these crowds a bit uncomfortably
You couldn't stop & refrain from mocking us as insane
When you're the one getting laughed at, at Mockingbird Lane
What's with the cocky wordplay?
I enrolled in Monster High, now I eat off the popular plate
