Good evening, my darling readers. We had our trick or treat tonight. Not as many treaters out tonight, thanks to the cold, wind, and rain so we had a bit of candy left. It's also the first time in awhile that I didn't really dress up to pass out the goodies either. Just didn't feel up to it. I hope everyone else had a good evening. I've been attending an online blog party being held by Addicted to OPI-yum on her blog and Twitter and have been having a blast! She also announced the winners of her "Scariest Nail Polish Bottle in the USA" and I am the lucky first place winner! What a surprise and honor! This is the bottle that took first place.
Scary looking bottle, isn't it? The blog owner was so nice she decided to send all the entrants a prize. Wasn't that sweet?
Halloween Nail Art after the jump
A day or two ago, I decided to do some Halloween nails and started everything off with a coat of Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler, then painted every other finger nail orange and the other black. I used Spoiled's Orange You Glad and Sally Hansen's Black Out. The next day I decided they looked too plain so I french tipped them. On the black nails, I used Spoiled Jewerly Heist and on the Orange You Glad, I used Spoiled Deeper Dive. Then I added a fimo slice on my middle left nail and my right ring finger nail. I also used a LA Color Art Deco nail stripper to write a letter B on my left index finger and ring finger, using the fimo piece as the other O to spell out the word "BOO" on my left hand. I then added a ghost nail decal I'd won in one of the give aways to my middle right nail. To complete the look, I added 1 coat Poshe topcoat to smooth things out.
The photo's show some tip wear and major shrinkage after I used the Poshe. I didn't realize I had this much tip wear nor I had that much shrinkage until I saw the photo's so I apologize for the messiness. I just wanted to give y'all a general idea of how my first nail art attempt turned out. I hope I get much, much better over time.
Without futher ado, for your viewing pleasure:
I kept it simple and in the traditional orange and black Halloween color scheme. On a 1 to 10 scale, I give myself a 2 as I am my own worst critic.
On your first nail art attempt, what did you rate yourself as?
Thank you for spending a few minutes with me this evening and have a good night! Huggles!
