Halloween is a couple of weeks away which means it is totally acceptable to start wearing full blown Halloween nail art! I love Halloween so this excites me greatly. I already have a ginormous bowl of candy at my house waiting for trick or treaters (aka me).
I’m loving matte black polish so much I wanted to incorporate it into a Halloween manicure. I just did simple ghosts on two nails that way it’s not too overwhelming.
Ghosts are really easy to do. All you need is a white and black polish. For the black I used Pixi Matte Black and for the white I used Ulta Snow White. Once the black polish dried I used the white polish to create the ghost. The key to this is to use more pressure on the brush towards the tip to give the ghost a wider bottom. Once the white dries I used a small dotting tool to create the eyes (which look best if they aren’t perfectly round) and added three small dots at the tip of the nail to complete the ghost.
I like the way this manicure turned out. It’s cute and fun and most importantly, super easy!

For this manicure I created a triangle on the tip of my nails with […] Continue reading →

This manicure came to be because I was wearing PISTOL polish True Grit, I’ve Got It and loved it. But, despite the fact that True Grit is textured AND metallic I found it to be a bit on the boring side in terms of the color. The easy way to fix this problem is obviously […] Continue reading →
Last weekend Charlotte hosted an International Champions Cup soccer (er, futbol) match between Liverpool and AC Milan. While I’m not the biggest soccer fan I do love sports and was excited to attend simply because it was a new experience and let me tell you; it was a SCENE. The game was in Bank of […] Continue reading →

Sometimes I just can’t help myself. This manicure is all wrong for my skintone but I just love it.
