Halloween Mani!

I admit it can intimidating to do theme manicures for me because all around the nail world are bloggers and non-bloggers alike who are so talented with stamping, nail art, and free-hand painting! I, however, am not one of those people. I’ve tried my hand at stamping a few times and failed miserably at water-marbling…. but I still like to rock a fun themed mani from time to time.

I gathered up a few Halloween-inspired polishes and a sheet of nail vinyls and set to work.

Eat. Sleep. Polish. Letters From a Porcupine Collection – No Rain

When Eat. Sleep. Polish. released the Letters From a Porcupine collection, I admit I was a bit reluctant to purchase both blues that were offered. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love blue polish but I always find myself reaching for something else to wear on my nails. But, trusting Cat and her genius, I added both to my cart and awaited their delivery.

No Rain is the brighter blue in the collection, a pretty linear holo.

October 30 – Wednesday Wants!

Oh, yes… it’s quite easy to have a weekly wishlist, especially at this time of year when beauty brands are doing everything they can to lure us into buying their many limited edition sets, palettes, and gifts.

First up on my list today is just that… a beautiful, limited edition offering from a favourite brand of mine – Urban Decay. If you’re a beauty junkie like me, you’re familiar with the Vice 3 palette that was released a few weeks back. I haven’t pulled the trigger on it yet… but I’m tempted to every day!

Eat. Sleep. Polish. Letters From A Porcupine Collection – 2×4

Oops! I thought I had posted these, but apparently I was wrong! That happens once or twice a year (me being wrong). Okay, it happens way more often, but I figured you would  notice my shorter, square nails in these pictures!

2×4 from Eat. Sleep. Polish. is really a beautiful polish for this time of year. A creamy, delicious brown holo. I really like the undertone of this one… not too red/orange of a brown, so I think it will be flattering on all skintones!

Julep – Phoebe

I have been putting more effort into trying some of my untrieds from brands aside from my usual. It’s so easy to overlook polishes when you have a stockpile of gorgeous holos staring at you, but that means overlooking gems like this! Julep’s Phoebe is delightful in the bottle but I was nervous it would be sheer when I used it, as sometimes shimmery teals tend to be very sheer.

Eat.Sleep.Polish. – Rusty Spoons & Salad Fingers

I wanted to get these up since they are limited edition and won’t be around forever. Plus, they are just perfect for this time of year. Between Halloween and Autumn inspired manis, my oranges have been getting a real workout lately! Eat. Sleep. Polish. doesn’t disappoint with delivering a gorgeous orange for us to enjoy. Rusty Spoons is an orange holo with a bit of an orange sheen, and Salad Fingers is a coordinating glitter topper with copper, sandy, caramel, matte peach, fuchsia, red and cranberry glitters of all shapes and sizes!” It sounds like a lot, but it works. eat-sleep-polish-salad-fingers-rusty-spoons
