*Press SampleHi everyone, welcome to Monday. I had a busy weekend, hence, no posts. On Saturday, we went up to Chicago to celebrate my sister-in-law's birthday, which falls on Halloween. We ended up going to Six Flags, where it was a brisk 40 degrees and windy. I've never been to a theme park when it was cold but man was it chilly. I am also deathly afraid of heights, yet I ended up on every roller coaster haha! It was a good weekend but we didn't end up back home until dinner time yesterday.
Today I have a set of manis that I did on Friday in anticipation of this week. I've done the colorful side of Halloween (here), the monster side (here), and even the candy side (here), but I have yet to do the fun and girly side of Halloween. Today I have just that!
I picked out a nail wheel full of 3D charms from Born Pretty Store. Born Pretty is really my go-to store for nail art supplies for every holiday. This nail wheel is item no. 5149, pattern no. 4 and it comes with 24 3D resin nail charms. These include black and pink skulls, different colors of bunnies, and some charms that look like desserts :) For my first look I used the black skulls that are sporting pink bows.
I started with a base of OPI Midnight in Moscow and then mattified it. I then freehanded the white chevron tip with Maybelline Color Show Porcelain Party. I finished off with the skull. I dabbed a little bit of clear topcoat on my nail and then placed the skull and let the topcoat dry.
Next up is a super girly mani! I started with a color that feels like traditional Halloween to me...purple. I used Essie The More The Merrier and added one coat of OPI Which it Witch? I finished off with a pink bunny on my accent nail, using the same process as the first one.
And with keeping this post as sweet as can be, I give you one of the sweetest pictures of Lucy I have ever taken....well, because why not? :)
I really enjoyed creating both manis from this nail wheel. I think I captured the girly side of Halloween :) This nail wheel is $4.27 and comes with 24 charms in 12 designs. It can be found here. Don't forget, you can receive an additional 10% off with my coupon code below!
