I know, I know. Halloween has come and gone. And I would have had this post up on Halloween or before but I’ll be honest, I’ve really been struggling with anxiety this week and being seriously stressed and overwhelmed (still am 😦 ). So blogging took a backseat (thank you, past me for scheduling a ton of posts ahead of time) while I’ve been trying to sort myself out. I’m not completely sorted out (who is these days anyway?) but I wanted to sit down and show you the manicures I’ve had on my hands over the last couple of weeks leading up to Halloween. I’ve done a blood drip manicure, a disappearing/reappearing manicure, and a Frankenstein themed manicure. A copious amount of pictures ahead 😉
So this summer, my husband and I went out to an event where there was going to be local food and beer offerings. I was feeling pretty down and sick (thank you, morning sickness!), so I wanted to do my nails in a bad ass but kind of neutral way. Here’s what I came up with using OPI Do You Take Lei Away, KBShimmer Night Bright, Sinful Colors Konfection, and Barry M Diamond Glitter – plus skull nail charms!
I started off with 3 coats of OPI Do You Take Lei Away on my middle, ring, and pinky fingers.
On my pointer finger, I used 3 coats of KBShimmer Night Bright and holy yes, I love this black sparkly polish!
On top of Do You Take Lei on my pinky, I used Sinful Colors Konfection and Barry M Diamond Glitter in a waterfall gradient. Lastly, I added some gems and a skull charm.
I gotta say, this totally made me feel badass and I couldn’t stop staring at my own nails! Oh yeah!! What do you think?
