HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Kitties and Halloween mani.

Happy Halloween everyone! :-) Had too much candy yet?! I can't stay out of it! lol....We usually have about 200 plus kids come by, so we have LOTS of candy! It is cold here. Cold and windy, and I'm sooo tired for some reason. I do love Halloween though. Do you have any big plans for tonight?

Here is my Halloween mani. It's nothing too special or complicted, but I like it.:-)
I used the black and orange pumpkin polishes,Sally Hansen Jack O-Lantern, (the orange glitter)and the black Nicole glitter. I bought the Halloween sticker by Kiss this year, and used a pumpkin sticker. I used a bat on my right hand.

My two cats wanted to say Happy Halloween too! ;-)

Here's what my babies really look! I

And Friscoe

What did you do for your Halloween mani? Whatever you are doing to night, I hope you have a fun, and safe time!

Del Sol Trick or Treat,$OPI If You've Got It, Haunt It,Krack Polish and other Halloween Swatches.

Hey guys, I'm back again. :-) See my last blog below, for pics. of my Halloween stash. I'm back with a few swatches of them. These manis. are from this past week. I'm playing catch up tonight.

First up is OPI by Sephora If You've Got It, Haunt It. It's a chunky black glitter. It also has some silver and blue glitter through out. No problems with application, and I used two coats.

This one is one of the pumpkin polishes from Blue Cross. It's a fuschia base with chunky silver glitter. I used three coats.

Another pumpkin polish. This time I used the black. I just love these little guys!
:-) I do believe this just might be my fav. black cream. It was flawless and it applied like a dream! I really only needed one coat, but I used two out of habit.

Here it is with Wet n' Wilds Fantasy Maker Black Magic. This is from last year, and it's a rainbow bar glitter. I don't quite get the name, but I do love this polish!

The cute it! :-)

Ulta Green With Envy is a black base with green shimmer. It was a bit messy to apply, and I used three coats.

Here it is with Pure Ice Heartbreaker over top. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this top coat! I think everyone needs it! ;-)

One more of the pumpkin polishes. This time it's the neon purple one. As with all of these polishes I've used so far, application was great.

With black glitter by Nicole.

This next one, I call my Krack polish fail! LOL! Even though I was warned that the KP from Transdesign didn't work that great, I had to try it for myself. I got the green one to try. It looks like slime! It reminds me of the slime I used to get our of the 25 cent machines when I was a kid. lol! I guess that makes it ok for Halloween. I used a white polish for the base, and then I put the Krack polish on. Here's how it turned out...

Yeah, not so great huh?! lol...Needless to say, it didn't stay on!

Which brings me to my last polish of the week, and the one I'm currently wearing.

Del Sol Trick or Treat. This polish is amazing!!! Such an awesome color. It's an orange,bronze and lime green glitter inside. Outside in the sun it turns to a glitterly dark purple. I used four coats, but it was no biggie since it dried super fast.


Changing colors

Changed all the way to it's outside color.

Whew! That was a long post. Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to do for my Halloween Mani. I'm going to keep it simple, just not sure what I'm going to use yet. Do you know what your Halloween mani is going to be?

Well, I'm off to bed....I'm worn out! It's been a long week! Good night all! :-)

Finger Paints Holiday Swatches!!

Hey guys! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was ok. I did run to Sally's to pick up some more Gelous. When I went in, the manager asked me if I would like to go in the back with her, to see all of the Holiday collections! Yeah, she knows me that well! LOL! Anyway, since I had already bought the CG and Orly polishes I wanted, I got the Finger Paints collection. I swatched them over the weekend and have them to show you today. :-) It was pretty cloudy all weekend, so I got the best pics. I could get. ;-)

Here are the bottles...

Holly Good Time is one of my favs. of the bunch. It's gold glitter with some red glitter mixed in. It's really pretty and could def. pass for a fall or holiday polish. Application was good and this was two coats.

Mulberry Madness is a red glitter with some silver glitter mixed in. It kinda reminds me of SH Downtown Rubies. Application was good and I used three coats.

Mistletoe Mishief is another one of my favs. if not my fav. This is one awesome polish! :-) It's a jelly green with silver glitter. Application was perfect and I used two coats.

Just Plum Fun is a surprise fav. for me. I thought this was going to be just another purple, but there is something about it that I really like. It's a very deep plum color with silver/pink shimmer. I used two coats, but could have gotten away with only one!

Merry Mittens is a brick red with gold glitter. The glitter sorta sunk in with two coats and gave it that bubble apperance, but after I put a top coat on it looked much better.

Winter Wishes was my only real dissapointment of the collection. I really wanted to love this one. It has a sand color with gold glitter, and is very pretty in the bottle. It reminds me of the beach. However, it was wayyy too thick and all of the glitter sunk. It made it look like bubbles and unfortunately top coat didn't help this one. On the nail it looks like lumpy oatmeal. :-/

I'd say both Holly Good Time and Mistletoe Mischief are must haves. Just Plum Fun is one I'd def. get if you don't have anything like it. Mulberry Madness is def. dupeable, but if you love a red glitter (like I do!) I'd grab it too. Merry Mittens is nice with the top coat but there are def. others out there that are similar without the problems MM has. Winter Wishes....well, just skip this one altogether. It's just yuck. LOL!

Over all, this is a good collection. I'd be on the look out for them starting Nov. 1 at Sally's. They have already been spotted out at a few stores, but the release date isn't until the first.
