Ok, we won't be doing a Comparison Thursday today since it's Halloween, which is my FAVORITE holiday of the year. Instead, I'm going to show you some of the Halloween looks I've been rocking this month. Bear with me as these photos were taken with my iPhone and might not be the best quality coupled with the fact that my nails are a right mess. Without further ado, and in no particular order, my Halloween manis!
**All polishes were purchased by me.**
Lynnderella Are You a Good Witch over Rescue Beauty Lounge Piu Mosso.
Witch is a clear based polish with a blue shimmer and glitters in all sorts of shapes and sizes but that focus more on the darker side of the spectrum. Part 1 of the Lynnderella Halloween inspired Twin Set. Piu Mosso is a deep navy creme with a strong copper shimmer.
Lynnderella Ghouls Just Want to Have Fun over Wet 'n Wild Fantasy Makers Darkest Hour, Once Upon a Time, and Ghouls Rush In.
Ghouls Just Want to Have Fun is a clear based polish with a pink to blue shimmer and multicolored glitters. Part 2 of the Lynnderella Halloween inspired Twin Set. Darkest Hour is a plain black creme. Once Upon a Time is a silver foil. Ghouls Rust In is a really nice bright orange jelly.
Lynnderella Gotta Love Brains with Illamasqua Raindrops.
Raindrops is a grey based polish with silver-grey flakies. Gotta Love Brains is a pale grey base with a pink shimmer and hexes and squares in silver, purple, pink, and blue. This is two coats of Raindrops and three coats of GLB without undies. I wasn't sure how I'd like either of these, but this may be my favorite non-art mani this year.
Lynnderella All Hallows Eve over Elevation Torres del Paine.
All Hallows Eve is a green polish with various shades and sizes of green and black glitters. Torres del Paine is an amazingly luscious green creme that is opaque in one coat. Flawless application! I took it to the next level by using NYC Matte me Crazy.
I used 5 different polishes following this technique to get this look. I was absolutely IN LOVE with this mani. It's just sooo pretty. I used (from cuticle to free-edge): Elevation Matsuda, Deborah Lippmann Footloose, China Glaze Riveting, Elevation Sarychev, and Elevation SBP Llulluillaco.
Candy Corn Holo Gradient
I used the same technique as the one above for the gradient (from cuticle to free-edge): Model City Polish Corn Maze, OPI Coral Reef, and Indigo Bananas Do You Have a Flag? I then stamped on my accents with Konad Special Black using my new Bundle Monster Holiday plates (BM-H07, BM-H06).
So, if you celebrate it, what did you do for Halloween? If not, what was your Thursday mani? I'll be doing something a bit different next month, so check back tomorrow for that. Also, please be aware that the Depression Awareness Giveaway will take time to verify as I will be awaiting the information from the charity, so please be patient as I get all of the verification information in.
