Halloween 2013 - Sugar Skulls

Today I bring you my last Halloween design and it is one of my favourites, the sugar skull nail.  I did them last year and knew they were going to be a staple Halloween nail for years to come.  Follow me under the cut to read about how I created these nails and a few more Halloween nail ideas.

Pink Friday

No, this isn't to do with the Nicki Minaj album of the same name but rather for Pinktober, the month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.  Many different beauty and lifestyle bloggers have been doing their part to raise awareness about this awful disease and here are some nails that will hopefully help as well.

 Inglot 702, 331, O.P.I A-Rose From the Dead and Barry M Nail Art Pens in Pink and White

So these nails are just a mix and match of different line work in various shades of pink.  The base colour, Inglot 702 is a perfect pastel pink that is bang on trend for this Autumn/Winter 2013/14.  I used a striper brush for all of the designs except my ring finger, for which I used the Barry M Nail Art Pens.

So ladies, get yourself informed and check yourself out regularly so you know if something is different sooner rather than later.

Halloween 2013 - Eyeballs!

Here's my second Halloween themed post.  For these nails, I whipped out my Wah!Nails Book of Nail Art and tried out this manicure that makes a very strong impression and is actually pretty simple.  Follow me under the cut for more deets and photos.

Halloween 2013 - Blood Stained Nails

It's that time of year when the queues outside every single costume shop in the land are around the corner and everyone's asking 'What are you dressing up as?'.  I used to be a much more enthusiastic person when it came to Halloween but these past few years, I haven't really put in the effort to put together a killer costume, only raiding my wardrobe to put together a vaguely believable costume for 1950's housewife or Jitterbug dancer (I like vintage style clothes, can you tell?).  So I thought, let's make an effort with my nails AT LEAST.  My nails last year were some AMAZING sugar skull nails which I shall recreate for you guys but here is my first look, blood stained nails!  Jump under the cut for more pictures and how I can quite clearly not do gradients.
