Spectral Zombie nubs

Happy_Halloween_by_Akebashi_chanHappy Halloween everyone!

I have two different Halloween manis for you today. One from last week and one that I am wearing with my currently nubly state. :(  My ring finger nail broke I slammed it on the door and I absolutely hate such different lengths of nails. This happened at work and I was impatient and ripped my nails off rather than cutting, I know, I know SOO bad. so by the time I filed them so they weren’t all jagged they were like soo short :( I hate them right now.

First up is Spectral Pup by Dollish Polish. I have been wanting this polish for soooo long and I finally found it! I put it over two coats of Spa Ritual’s HiJinks.

Spectral Pup is an orange and white glitter in a shimmery base that glows in the dark! I totally freaked myself out with this.. I had forgotten about the glow in the dark and one night I was up on my way to the bathroom and my thumb was glowing scared the crap out of me.. SMH. Then I looked on table and saw whole bottle was glowing… oh yea! Duh.

IMG_7153IMG_7150I love how this looks so different overtop so many different polishes. Thats part of what I love so much about glitter toppers. :)

Next up is more Dollish Polish, this is Zombie Flesh and Walker Bait.

I don’t know much about it, but I am wondering if there are two different formulas since she brought Zombie Flesh back. From me looking at swatches most seem to be a more kahki army like olive green and mine is more of a brighter green. It’s a green jelly with black, gold, and green glitter flecks. Took 3 coats to be opaque.

Then Walker Bait is this gorgeous deep rich olive green holo. What more can I say about that, I mean it’s stunning.

I just wish that my nails were not nubs and were longer. I feel that it shows gorgeous polishes so much better that way when they aren’t nubs. Sorry guys They are already getting longer again.

Well there you have it. Here are my Halloween Manis.

What is everyone being for Halloween?

The Lacquer Ring – Inspired by Frosso

This month as you saw in our color inspiration post, we are doing nails inspired by Frosso. She is a very dear friend of ours who is behind the now retired blog Lacquer Me Silly. As sad as we are to see her retire, I’m sure you will see her pop up on Instagram from time to time ;)

How can one choose just ONE look of Frosso’s to be inspired by, I love all of her nails. With Halloween being this week, I decided to do one of her Halloween looks… since Lesley took the look I wanted. LOL Just kidding! She did an amazing job! All of the girls did!

I chose Frosso’s Halloween splatter. This is her look:  She transferred her files to wordpress so you can check out the full article here.

For this look I painted two coats of OPI’s Can’t Afjord not to. I splattered China Glaze’s Liquid Leather, Ulta’s Snow White, Sinful Colors Happy Ending, and Opi’s Do you have this color in Stock-holm. Not only can this look be messy but depending on your approach it can use a lot of polish so be careful.

I have only done one splatter, and had forgotten just how messy it can be.. wow LOL

The good thing is that I thought to use OPI’s Glitter off on my fingers so it minimized clean up a lot… however the way I held my hand when I did it, I didn’t think to glitter off my hands too… SMH

This is how it came out though, and I must say I absolutely love it!

The Lacquer Ring – Vampy

A new month is here which means a new set of prompts! It was Frosso’s turn however she recently announced her retirement for blogging. As sad as it is to see a founding member of #TLR and #StampingSaturday retire, we all can understand that sometimes life gets in the way of blogging and we have to make a choice. Have no fear though, I think she might pop in from time to time on Instagram, so make sure you follow her!

The first collab is Vampy colors because as we all know Fross loves her Vampy colors and her grays :)

I chose Zoya’s Blair. To me, this is the perfect amount of vampi-ness. Zoya’s site says: “best described as a blackened red wine with a satiny smooth metallic shimmer. This cool-toned, vampy shade has a undeniably mesmerizing depth!” I just now read the description and find it funny that it called it a Vampy shade too! See. lol I absolutely love this color!

This is two coats and I honestly might have even been able to get away with a thicker one coat.

GO FLYERS!!

Saturnalian

I have been slacking hardcore. I know, I know! I was just barely getting by with doing Stamping Saturdays and our #TLR The Lacquer Ring posts…. to now slacking even with the Stamping Saturdays. Life has just gotten to be too hectic. I haven’t even been checking out my girlfriend’s blogs, or anyones blogs for that matter, I just feel like in a slump. Just too much going on :(

I got a new couch!! That doesn’t sound so exciting but it is for us lol we needed one BADLY! It’s fabulous! It’s a sectional with a chaise something we are not used to, never had this style couch but I am loving it more every day.   My girlfriend is teaching me how to crochet, so honestly a lot of my spare time has been devoted to practicing that and making different things. The last couple of things I have had on my nails were really good polishes so they held up almost a week at a time so I haven’t even been doing many manis :/    I can’t promise that I will be back as much as I used to but I will at least try to post once a week at least until things pick back up, it’s just so hard finding the time right now. I feel liek this happens every year right around the holidays.  I didn’t even get to do any PCOS/Ovarian Teal Ribbon nails in September :( Have no fear though I have a very special giveaway I have been holding on to this month! ;)

Alright well here are my super creepy long nails. I mean not super creepy to everyone (at least I hope not) just for me because my nails have NEVER been this long and it just got to be too long. The cut was well overdue. So this mani was from a couple of weeks ago prior to the cut. :)

This is two coats of Philly Loves Lacquer’s Saturnalian. It’s a gorgeous blue with grey scattered holos and rainbow micro glitters, also super high shine. How can you not go wrong! Saturnalian is a part of the Fancy Brigade Mummer’s line. If you are not familiar with the Mummers or Fancies she has some info about it under the polish description.

IMG_7068IMG_7072Gorgeous right?  You can purchase Philly Loves Lacquer polishes here. Although as I check on this it looks like she is currently sold out of this particular one right now :(

So I leave you for now but will schedule out another post of my gorgeous and first ever Illamasqua!!! I LOVE it wait till you see this color. And of course don’t forget about the upcoming giveaway!
