Vampire Twin Post with Simply Stylish Nails

Hello!

Today I'm really excited to be doing a twin post with my beautiful, smart and crazy talented cousin Genevieve who is front woman & manicurist supreme of the blog Simply Stylish Nails.

You can check out last years twin post, where we unknowingly did EXACT same mani!. Last year we chose our brand new bottle of Clearly Spotted to be the object of our post, this year we went with...

I tried to create a spooky and dark look (dark for me, I like fun manis) and to borrow a friends description: eerie mani. The story here is: its foggy at dawn, and the vampire looks over the village he visited last night before he returns indoors. scaarrrry!
Shadowy vampire nails


I used the following:
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls
SpaRitual A World of Compassion
China Glaze Pelican Grey
China Glaze First Mate
Cult Nails Nevermore
OPI Matte Top Coat
Acetone for mixing.


I've been absent from writing on my blog, but totally active on instagram and facebook. You can see my recent posts and up-dates there. Thank you for sticking me!

I highly encourage you to find Simply Stylish Nails on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and of course her BLOG.

Happy Halloween!

#31DC2014: Yellow

Hi! 

Day 3 of the 31 day challenge with the colour yellow. I'm not that big into the shade yellow by itself. I prefer to use it as an accent to other colours and part of the bigger picture.


My yellow mani is simple and nautical themed. I used:
Finger Paints Paper Mâché
Sally Hansen Insta-dri Lightening
Maybelline Navy Narcissist (stamping polish)
Bundle Monster BM-411
MoYou Sailor 01 



Still in it on day 3! Let hope I don't drop out in the first week :P 

Thank you so much for looking.

#31DC2014: Orange

Hello! 

We made it to day 2 of the #31DC2014 And the theme is orange. I shamelessly copied a manicure by Genevieve at Simply Stylish Nails that she posted last week. She created THE perfect tape manicure using varying orange shades in a gradient that made my heart skip a beat!

Here's my copy cat version:

Finger paints Paper Mâché
Lise Watier Tangerine
China Glaze Peachy Keen
China Glaze Lemon Fizz
Stripping Tape



I attempted I get ahead in the #31dc2014 but I left this manicure on until the late Monday night. I didn't want to remove it, which cause me to loose my "lead". I'll be trying to get a leg up tonight. 

Thanks for reading!

#31DC2014: RED

Good morning!

Alright! I'm going for "it" and attempting the 31 Day challenge. Its being set up by Sarah of Chalkboard Nails and you can read her post about it here.


As you can see, day 1 is RED.

I decided to half moons using the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Red Eye. A sweet gift to me from my sister, she saw them & thought of me. I got the kit with the base and top coat (Red Eye shown below) and a individual bottle of Tidal Wave.Thanks Theresa!


Half moons created using hole reinforcements. I was inspired by some nail wraps I saw on e-bay a while back. I need to note that the Miracle Gel Top Coat caused BAD streaking. It looks like it works well, just not over stamping.

Sally Hansen Red Eye
OPI My Vampire Is Buff
CultNails Nevermore
Gals Plate GA13

Don't forget to search #31DC2014 over all social media to see every ones take on each theme.

Have a great day!

Karen
