Nail-Aween Challenge: Day 4 - Mummy Nails & Giveaway on Facebook

Simple Mummy Nails for Day 4! :)
For this, I used Elegant for the base color and then I went ahead and drew (using a very thin Nail Art Brush) the lines horizontally with Sinful Colors - Snow Me White.  The thick black line behind the eyes, is supposed to be the darkness inside the mummys tomb, I hope ya'll got that :]

Nail-Aween Challenge: Day 3 - Blood Nails & "Happy Home"

Hello & Welcome to all of my new followers :)  I noticed my followers went up a little in the past week.  Awesome :)  Don't be shy... say hi! <3 
I started off with my Growth Spurt (Base Coat), I applied 2 coats of Picture Polish - Tiffany, except my ring finger... which I applied Sinful Colors - Snow Me White.  I used Tiffany for this mani because I needed a very light creme blue/green to use as my base color, then I could proceed with the designs.
I am sorry, I was super excited about the last step of this design that I totally forgot to take photos after I painted on the flowers :(  So sorry... 

I had been thinking about this design for a while now... And I am so happy that it turned out exactly how I had pictured it in my mind.  I was thinking of the times when I had watched any crime scene investigation shows and there would be blood splatter all over the walls of the "happy home".  I decided to go with this vintage wallpaper design and blood...
I almost cleaned up all of the splatter on my fingers, but I thought it looked WAY cooler this way.

Mani Details: CDG - Growth Spurt, Picture Polish - Tiffany (2 coats), Sinful Colors - Snow Me White (Ring Finger - 2 coats), Vintage Flower Designs >> OPI - Cha-Ching Cherry, OldNavy- Preppy Pink, China Glaze - Holly-Day, Blood >> Nail Polish Thinner & Travel Size little squirt bottle (both from Sally's), Butter London - Pillar Box Red, Sinful Colors - Rich In Heart & Under 18.

For this mani & post, I want to give credit where credit is due... to my inspiration.  Gini @ SassyPaints2012 created this mani and I just fell IN LOVE with it.  I kept thinking, OMG brilliant!! Why didn't I think of that before!?!  Without her blog, post and AMAZING nails I wouldn't have been able to come up with a mani this freakin' awesome!!!  So thank you Gini <3!  You guys can follow her blog >here< and see her specific mani I am referring to >here<

Thank you

Nail-Aween Challenge: Day 2 - Matte Doticure

Well, for this Day 2 manicure... I wasn't sure what to do. I recently picked up OPI - So So Skullicious Kit from Copious.  I decided to go ahead with it for this mani, why not!
I used Serum No. 5 - Fallen for my ring finger and OPI - hi, Pumpkin! for the rest of my fingers.  I, then used Butter London's Matte Finish to give it that matte look.  For the dots, I used... A-Rose from the Dead, Mourning Glory & Candlelight (all from OPI So So Skullicious Kit).
Very simple [Matte Doticure] I did here.  I even got to use some of the decals that came with this kit :)
Mani Details: CDG - Growth Spurt (base coat), OPI - So So Skullicious Mini Kit, Butter London Matte Finish, Serum No.5 - Fall (ring finger)

Nail-Aween Challenge: Day 1 - Water Marble

I figured I would get this challenge started right away.  I had been thinking about it for the past week now.  So here it is... Day 1 - Water Marble.  For this marble I tried once and failed.  The black I used, wasn't so black.  It was too gray for me, so I changed up the polish a bit and ended up with this.
I went ahead and added some dots with my dotting tools on the areas where there was large spots of solid colors and... I filled those up with little dots :) I'm sorry my nails are so short here, I broke 3 of them when I was at Six Flags this past weekend :(

Mani details: Sally Hansen Complete Care 4-in-1 (base), Essie - Fear or Desire (1 coat)... OPI - Black Onyx & Essie - Fear or Desire for marbling... Seche Vite DF TC (1 coat)

Let me know what you all think :)  Thanks for the feedback... Now on to the next one!
