Halloween Water Marble + Giveaway Winners Announcement

Hey guys!

So first of all I'm still having way too much fun doing Halloween themed nails, aha. I did a water marble yesterday using Sally Hansen polishes (black, orange, and Celeb City (silver)). My tip for water marbling is to use room temperature water :)

Admittedly, this water marble is a bit messier than I usually do, but I really liked how unusual the swirls looked :) Sometimes the little imperfections are more interesting, I think. So I left it as is. What do you think?

And now, for the winners of my 100 follower giveaway! Thank you to all who entered, new followers and old, for reading my blog and always leaving me comments and support :) I appreciate you more than you know.

Deborah Lippmann- Believe

Just a quick post today!

Thanks to everyone who entered my 100 follower giveaway! I hope to announce the winners some time next week :)

What I'm wearing today, Deborah Lippmann's Believe. This isn't a new color, but did you know that Deborah Lippmann and Juicy Couture collaborated for a Holiday 2011 collection? It's called Precious Metals. Believe is one of the polishes included, along with two other exclusive colors! The Beauty Lookbook has some swatches and a review here. Interesting, huh?

This color is fascinating to me because while it is a silver foil, it also has a distinctly (to my eye) copper foil mixed in. It makes the silver warm toned, rather than the regular cool tone.

Thanks for reading :) Now I need to catch up on answering my comment, haha. Later!

Keep your eyes (and ears) peeled...Halloween Freehand Nail Art

Whooooo~Whoooo~ (That's supposed to be a ghost howling, haha)

REMINDER: There's just under a week left to enter my 100 follower giveaway! I'm giving away two brand new NARS Night Series polishes, and some Hard Candy Body Shimmers  :D You can enter here:

Okay~ Today I freehanded some nail art based on those bags of candy you can buy that are made to look like body parts :) Halloween candy is my life, seriously. I used one coat Sally Hansen White On, and two coats of China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada on top (a neon, hence the white on the bottom).

Like it? I love how bright the China Glaze polish is, like a neon slime green. Perfect for campy Halloween nails :) Lots of pictures of these nails because I love them!! Definitely my favorite nail art for a while.

Let me know what you think :)

Essie-Very Structured

Hey guys!

Okay, today is one of the Essie Brand New Bag(Fall 201)1 polishes I bought a little while ago. Very Structured is a very dusty brick red. It's not a true red at all, it's closer to the color of a dark red clay :) It covered completely in two coats. I'm wearing Seche Vite on top.

This polish really complements my skin tone :) And it's a darker color, but not too dark. It's not a blackish color at all.

Do you have this polish? If not, does it look like something you're interested in? Talk to me in the comments :D
