Maleficent Nails

Base color in OPI's My Voice is a Little Norse from the Nordic Collection.  I used Purple Perspective and Landscape Artist from the Color Paints Collection over the top along with the spiral water marble image from Bundle Monster's blogger collaboration plates.  On the feature nail, I used acrylic paint to paint Maleficent's head.

I saw this movie in Lubbock, TX with my best friend while visiting her when she was earning her master's (so proud).  We love our Disney movies and agree she's one of the most BA villains around so I had to dress my nails up for Halloween as this.  Hope you enjoy!

Kitty Pumpkin Nails

Base colors in OPI's I'm Getting a Tan-gerine from the Retro Summer Collection and Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used SPF XXX for the creases in the pumpkin and then outlined it in black acrylic paint.  I also used black acrylic paint to make the kitty coming out of the pumpkin.  For the polka dots, I used white Bundle Monster stamping polish and a Cheeky stamping plate.

I saw these nails on Pinterest a few months ago and decided to keep the image around to do myself when it came time for Halloween.  Hope you enjoy this cute little kitty. :)

Pastel Holo Pumpkins

Base colors from left to right are OPI's Rumple's Wiggin' from the Shrek Collection, and I'm Getting A Tan-Gerine, Sailing and Nailing, and What's the Double Scoop from the Retro Summer Collection.  For the lines on the pumpkins, I used A Grape Fit from the Brights Pair Collection, SPF XXX from the Retro Summer Collection, Fearlessly Alice from the Through the Looking Glass Collection, and Flip Flops and Crop Tops from the Retro Summer Collection.

After these were dry, I used a Halloween Bundle Monster plate for the faces.  Then using green acrylic paint, I painted on the stems.  Lastly, I topped everything off with a holographic top coat, Northern Lights.

Enjoy! :)

Holo Ghosties

Base color in Super Chic Lacquer's No Rest for the Wicked from the Dreamology Collection.  I then dry brushed on Color Club's Fingers Crossed from the Halo Hues 2015 Collection and OPI's Black Onyx from the Tuxedo Collection.

With a Bundle Monster Halloween plate, I used the decal method of stamping and placed little ghosts on the middle two fingers.  These ghosts were filled in with Fingers Crossed.  Cute and spooky, just the way I like it :)

Chilling Halloween Gradient

Base colors in a gradient from OPI's Romantically Involved from the Fifty Shades of Gray Collection, Skyfall from the Skyfall Collection, and Liv in the Gray from the Washington DC Collection.  I used black Bundle Monster stamping polish and their Halloween stamping plates for the design.

Hope you enjoy this spooky design! :)

Silly Candy Corn Nails

Base colors in OPI's In My Back Pocket and A Grape Fit from the Brights Pair Collection, Need Sunglasses? from the Brights by the Dozen Collection, and Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.

I used nail vinyls to section out the nails with the candy corn pattern.  After the nail vinyls were removed, I used a silver and a gold glitter striper to edge them.  Lastly, using the decal method, I stuck the cute little candy corn on the feature nail.  I used a Bundle Monster Halloween plate for the design and filled him in with the colors mentioned previously.

Spooky cute, right? :)

Color Paints Flowers

Base color in OPI's Silver Canvas from the Color Paints Collection.  I used the dry brush technique to make the water color design in the background using Magenta Muse, Primarily Yellow, Turquoise Aesthetic, and Purple Perspective.  Using one of the new blogger collaboration plates from Bundle Monster, I stamped on black flowers over the top.

I wore this for over a week and got so many compliments! Love it.  Hope you enjoy! :)

Turquoise Nails

Base color in OPI's Sailing and Nailing from the Retro Summer Collection.  I then used black stamping polish and one of the Blogger Collaboration plates from Bundle Monster.  Everything was topped off with this 18K Gold top coat called The Man with the Golden Gun from the Skyfall Collection.

I've been really wanting to catch on with this turquoise nail art that everyone has been doing, and I think I nailed it!  What do you think?  Enjoy! :)

Mer-mazing Nails

Base colors in a gradient of Super Chic Lacquer's 40 Winks and No Rest for the Wicked, finishing off with OPI's Designer Series Radiance.  I then used one of the new Bundle Monster Blogger Collaboration plates for the mermaid tail scales.
I then used the same plate and stamped on mermaids and sea shells with black stamping polish.

I'm so sad that the camera didn't do these nails justice, but they are super cute and amazing nonetheless.  Did I tell you I can't get enough of these plates? ;) Enjoy!

Fall Snoopy Nails

Base color in OPI's Where Did Suzi's Man-go? from the Brazil Collection.  I used the decal method of drawing Snoopy using acrylic paints and then drew the other leaves directly on the nails.
Fall is definitely not my favorite time of year, but I love October and Halloween!  Many Halloween nails to come.. Enjoy! :)
