Zombies on the Loose!

Happy Halloween everyone!!!!

I've seen so many cool manis for today. Lot's of zombie things that I want to do! However, I went a more simple approach. Just kind of the sidelines of the zombies, I guess. Well, you decide!

Sinful Colors Zeus(purple) and Nirvana (brown) kinda make up the dead flesh color, if that's what you take from it! I just figured they were good zombie colors. The stamp is BM 323, which is barbed wire. Unforetuneately the pics didn't capture it very well.

So there it is! IRL it actually looks really good! The wire is done with OPI DS Radiance.

As an after thought I added the blood spray. I figured a zombie would get out of barbed wire, right? As if that could stop them!! Ha!

Well, I hope everyone has an amazing Halloween. Keep safe out there. ♥

PS - I've been lacking ideas as of late. Does anyone know of a fun challenge I could try? Thanks a bunch!!!

Something pretty for a party!

Hey all! Busy busy couple of weeks! Been making tons of hula hoops, watching awesome Dexter, and had a formal party to attend for my work. YAY!!

Of COURSE I had to do a fancy mani! Even people I work with were saying ,"Lemme see your nails, I know you did them for this!"

So here we are! Sorry I didn't even get one pic of me in my pretty dress with my hair all did...Not my brightest moment. At least I got my nails!

This is the material on the dress, so that's what I was matching!

These colors are Essie San Tropez, Orly Luxe, and Butter London All Hail the Queen! No taping, I was too lazy for that. Also the gems are pretty and all, but only a few of them were even still on when i finally got to the party. Oh well!

You can clearly see the shortness in my middle finger nail. It's always the first to break. =( That was also the first gem to fall off too, of course!

I can't wait for Halloween!!

More Venique Swatches

It's been a while since I've swatched some Venique! My collection is growing steadily.

Here is 11 new swatches for you! 12 kinda... Enjoy!

 Cleats Calling Four. I love this one! I've used it before in on a pretty blue mani. It has a pretty blue sparkle to it.

 Havanah Glam is probably my favorite orange that I own. It's got the perfect amount of copper to it!

 Hot Pink Jellies! I love this pink! In some lights it's more coral than pink. It's so pretty!

 Lost In Bermuda was VERY hard to capture. Purples always turn out blue in photos, so I had to tinker just a tiny bit with this...Had to add a tiny bit of red, but now it's the same as the color of the bottle! Love this purple!

 Skating on Thin Ice has a pearl finish to it. Personally I hate pearl finishes...Too hard to get just right! I almost left this out, but then decided it's a swatch, so now you know what it looks like!

 Sky High Spike. Super pretty! I want my nails this all the time. <3

 Sole Train was also hard to capture the color. It didn't pick up the light so well. had to up the brightness just a tad bit too much, but at least you see the pretty brown shimmer!

 Stiletto's Gone Tipsy. I also had to add red to this blueish purple...I love this color; the picture does NOT do it justice!
Whisky Vamp. You can't tell very well in this swatch, but it is a shimmer!

 Side walk Surfer. The first time I saw this I grabbed it, put it back, grabbed it, etc. So I didn't remember ever getting it! The next time I went into CosmoProf i grabbed it and was sure to buy it! Got home...Had two. My roommate didn't mind getting a new bottle of polish!!! However, she has mildly stained nails because of it, and used a base. Be warned! But still a lovely shade!

 The Perfect Accessory. The perfect red!!! Don't mind the verrrryyyy slight too orange in this's about that color in the sunlight, but super perfect! I love it!

 Here it is with one coat of Clear is the New Sexy. Cute glitter top yay!

Being that this was my last swatch, it became my mani!!

I've said it before, I'll say it again... If you are licensed, get yourself some Venique! The consistency is AMAZING and it usually takes 1-2 coats for perfection! They are exclusive at CosmoProf, so get in there if you can!! Seriously!! =D

Hope you enjoyed these fun swatches. I'll most likely do more as my Venique collection grows!!
