Trick or Treat!

I finally made myself sit down and clean my camera off. I really need to keep up better. This is going to be a LONG post. Since it is still Halloween in the US, I'll start with a Halloween mani.

This is Revlon Powder Puff. I love the blue shimmer this polish has. I have a backup of it and I'm so glad I do. It's one that I use repeatedly. The graveyard stamp is an SdP stamp. The dots are almost too many polishes to mention! I love them all and just kept adding dots. So, not the best dot job. A couple of my favorites were Darling Diva Slutty Pumpkin and Sally Hansen Turquoise Opal (thank you G!).

Next up is one I copied from the Sally Hansen Salon Effects. I used Essence Oh My Glitter! I need to go grab several backups of this one. I love it!!! The plates I used were Bundle Monster 213, Dashica SdP 76 and Chez Delaney T13. 

Next up is China Glaze Riveting. I passed this one up when it first came out. I noticed it in the clearance section at Ulta and picked it up. OH WOW! It's on Fire!

The stamps I used are Chez Delaney D03 for the Jack O' Lantern face and H12 for the stripes.

Next I have for you Orly Dayglow and some patchwork candy corn. Dayglow reminds me of Powder Puff in the bottle, but on the nail the shimmer is not as strong (not there?). It is more opaque also.  

I stamped first with Cheeky 10 in Konad yellow (wide stripes). Next I stamped narrow stripes using Cheeky 6 and Konad Orange. Finally, I stamped with Red Angel 108 and Konad Black. I was pretty happy with the overall effect.

I use the Deborah Lippman method for polish removal. Tearing small pieces of cotton ball and saturating them with remover, I lay them on my nail for a few seconds. Then, I wipe them off. I thought it was really funny that the design came off cleanly on these. :)

Lastly for this month, another BCA. I used Illamasqua Devotee and Nubar Baby Pink. This picture is not terribly color accurate, but the whole mani was a fail. For some reason, I thought the Cheeky plate on my ring finger was I  my bff and would be somewhat appropriate. derp... Obviously it was not. lol. I did like the color combination however.

I used Nubar Baby Pink to stamp with Cheeky 53. The ribbons are from Bundle Monster 321 using Konad pink.

Hope you had a safe and fun Halloween & October!
