Little Ghostie Nails

Hi all! Here's my first Halloween design for this year. It's subtle and requires absolutely no work other than painting a base color and putting a sticker on. :)

I thought this sticker was absolutely adorable and it looked really great over a dark color! I thought the sticker was white, but it turned out to be slightly translucent. A fantastic surprise!

My base color is China Glaze Howl You Doin', which came out in their 2013 Halloween collection. It's a beautiful, deep plum base with orange and purple glitters in it. It definitely looks almost-black indoors, but you can see the glitter once you go outside and it's stunning. I decided it was just witchy enough to put the sticker over. :) The nail sticker came in a small Halloween pack that I got from Five Below. I don't have the packaging any more (my bad), but here's what they look like:

Surprisingly the sticker lasted for several days until I was ready to take that design off! Anyway, I hope you like it! There are more designs to come, and they are much more complex. Thanks for reading, have a great day, and happy painting! :)

Story time!

Hey there! Yes, it's story time again. So, I had planned on keeping this blog updated and whatnot, blah blah blah. But right after I said that, I found out that my SD card slot on my computer decided to stop working. After many fights and home remedies with the SD card slot, I have decided that it's never going to work again ever. So. That means that I can't get the pictures off my camera, because there's no way for me to plug it directly into my computer. And yes, I'm planning on getting a card adapter, since my USB ports work just fine. Unfortunately in the meantime, that meant that I just couldn't post since there was no way for me to get my pictures. I had accepted this fact up until now, because it's October. And you know how much I love my Halloween nails. Plus, my birthday is in a week, and I just need to start posting again!

My solution for this problem is that I will be posting several Halloween designs, but the only other camera I have is my iPhone 5S. Sigh. So the pictures won't be the best, but they're better than no pictures? I hope? I've already worn a few Halloween designs, so I'm going to be posting them tonight and in the next few days. Since my birthday is in a week, hopefully I'll get some money for a card adapter and we can return to our regularly scheduled blogging. :)

Thanks so much for reading and keep an eye out for the Halloween designs! Have a great day and happy painting! :)
