Added a few silver snowflakes and a little more glitter to my 'Saved by the Blue' mani.
I stamped with Pure Ice 'Mercedes' and Konad plate m-20 I was in a hurry to start my son's birthday party when I did the stamping so they are not perfectly lined up, not that they would be if I had time LOL but they may be a little closer.
Adding a second coat of the glitter polish was a mistake as it make it too thick and clumpy. It started peeling off the next day but I was fine with it since I had already worn the blue and silver for 4 days before this.

Kleancolor 'Bite Me' is a beautiful deep glitter infused polish that I just loved! I think this may be my favorite red to date. Then stamped with Konad white and a little
These pictures are a bit rough. I only took them to show my mom and I had it on for a few days already so there is substantial tip wear and a missing rhinestone lol;} I thought I would share the idea anyways. My ring finger stamp was faded by my Orly 'In a Snap' and for some reason the red kept bleeding through the white stamping and causing pink areas. Kinda strange, I've never had this happen before. I should also mention that this red is a nail stainer!!! It took a while to get it off but it was so pretty it was still worth it. Next time I will surely use a base coat on this one.
Missing rhinestones ;)
See how the red is bleeding through the sleigh turning it pink? Oh well, live and learn. I will not be stamping with white over 'Bite Me' again. Oh and did I mention that I applied a top coat before the stamping? And it still bled through!

Mummies and Zombies!!! Mmmmwaaaahahahhahaha!
I've had this on for the past few days waiting for the sun to come out so excuse the tip wear.
There may also be lingering bits and strings of hot glue too :D
I really love how these came out! My Hubby rated them a 10!
That's a first, he usually rates them around a 6.5-8.5 so a 10 is saying a lot.
On my left hand I did the girl zombie with girly bits and on my right hand I did the boy zombie with boy stuff.
This is my favorite for the girl side :D

Here's my Frankenstien's monster tissue box. He took a little while because, as usual, I didn't have a pattern. Hubby just loves his bolts :)
Does this look familiar? lol I had been wanting to do the striped skittle mani since September so I had it on the brain. Go figure it looks cute on a tissue box too :)
Each side is a different color and my mom and I added some Halloween foam stickers to embellish :0)

My new spider ring :D
This is my opposite hand and I think it came out pretty good considering. I'm getting a bit more steady with the nail art polishes but I still need a lot more practice. I think one of the main tips is to kind of lay down the brush on your nail and then just pull it back rather than trying to pain stright lines on a curved nail. I think too that you should just take a breath, relax and to look at the whole nail and don't focus on the stripe your painting. These are far from perfect but I still think they give the halloween feel and I'm happy with them :)
These remind me of Beetlejuice for some reason lol
Thumb- Kleancolor 'Boogie Nights'
Index- Wet n Wild 'Sage in the City'
Middle- Icing 'Hot Pants'
Ring- Sally's Deep Red (mini bottle)
Pinkie- Icing 'Fiona'
I will be adding some stamping to these and posting it tomorrow.
What are your favorite halloween nail designs?

These look blue but they really are a deep shimmery purple :) I used Wet n Wild 'Buffy the Violet Slayer' topped with a deep purple glitter jelly base and on my ring finger is Wet n Wild 'Sage in the City' topped with a no-name green glitter with large hex pieces in it.
I wish I would have checked my pictures before taking this off because you can barely see the stamping ;( The thumb came out well with the skull and crossbones from BM #225 and on my under finger there is a tombstone and a bat flying above BM #213 & BM #13. My middle finger has my zombie boy (sporting a mow hawk lol) and he's handing a rose to the zombie girl :) Konad plate M-13. Above them I added a spider BM #13. Just glitter on my ring finger and on my pinkie I added the swirlies just cause they have a Halloween feel to them with BM #224.
This mani was much prettier in person and felt very Halloween with the purple and green but as shown (looking blue and green) it just kinda seems odd lol, I don't know why. Hope y'all like it anyway. Tomorrow I will have another Halloween skittle mani :D

I know, all these shots kind of look the same but every tine I thought I had a good angle of one nail then it blocked the stamping of another lol. Call me crazy (most who know me do) but I decided to just throw them all out there.
