Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everybody! My Halloween nails aren't exactly spooktacular BUT they do have a tie to Halloween. Has anyone ever seen the movie Hocus Pocus?! It's one of my favorites and I always watch it on Halloween!

The three Sanderson sisters...characters in the movie of course. They inspired 3/5ths of this manicure and I hope you can tell how!
My index, middle, and ring fingers are all inspired by the corsets! Purple and pink for Sarah Jessica Parker, green and blue for Bette Midler, and orange and red for Kathy Najimy. Then on my pinkie is Frankenstein (a cute frankenstein if you ask me) and on my thumb is a mummy.

Inspired by: Raspberry Lemonade Blistex

Inspiration really does come from everywhere. Today, my inspiration for a nail design actually came from a bottle of Raspberry Lemonade Blistex chapstick. Seriously. There was something about the red and yellow combo that got me thinking about a nail design. I don't think I've ever paired yellow and red before in a design. For this look I used China Glaze Solar Power, Zoya Kristi, and BundleMonster plate 208.

I have to say, I really really like this pairing. And it makes me wish I had raspberry lemonade to drink! (Especially while I wait for Hurricane Sandy to come through here..)

At it again: Zebra

After posting my leopard manicure I wanted to do yet another manicure....more zebra! I liked the glitzy-ness of the gold in the leopard mani so I wanted to have a sparkle element in a zebra manicure too!

For this look I used China Glaze Recycle, Orly Liquid Vinyl, and Essence Silver Surfer.

It's l-e-o-P-a-r-d not l-e-o-T-a-r-d!

Obviously after posts like this one, or this one, or maybe any one of these, it's pretty clear I have been bit by animal print fever for a while now (It's sort of like Bieber Fever...only better). I've done mostly zebra since it's my favorite print but I've also tried some leopard and even peacock. This time I decided to try a bit more leopard in gold and black.

Feeling blue?

Hey everyone, just a quick post of the nails I painted during the presidential debate tonight. How do you like? I feel like I'm running a marathon with this whole law school thing and I have a list of manicures I can't wait to get done!! They seem to be having to wait until my winter break though in December unfortunately. So much to do, so little time!!
