Halloween Manis

I know I am suuuuper late to post this but I just haven't been around my computer enough lately to sit download pictures and upload them to my blog ( I know, bad girl!) I am going to try and blog at least once a week from now until my vacation on December 16-30. Let's see how that goes! So here is my super late post about the two halloween manis I did.

Please excuse the super dry cuticles and just skin in general. I saw a girl post a full candy corn manicure on PaA which I loved but wanted something a little more simple. I thought about doing all yellow nails since it's the base for the candy corn but decided the orange was more halloween-y. Not only is this mani super cute, it also glows in the dark!! Thank you ghoulish glow! I don't think I can explain how much I love Ghoulish Glow. It smooths everything out so nicely and glows so well! Every night I'd snuggle under the blankets and giggle because my nails were glowing :) this lasted about 4 days but then I got bored of it and changed it. The colours I used were Kleancolor- Mango, Urban Outfitters- UV, Essie- Blanc amd China Glaze- Ghoulish Glow. In this picture I don't have a top coat on. I put on Beauty Secrets top coat afterward.

This is my second halloween mani. I thought of it ( I know not very original) then the day before I did it I saw an almost identical mani online so I was embarrassed to post mine because hers was so much better. I don't remember who it was so I can't give them credit. If you know who it was please message me so I can give her the credit she deserves.

This was my first attempt at a nail design and my first time using a paint brush on my nails so don't be too critical please. I'm super old fashioned and love love love french manicures. I used to do them allll the time when I was younger and I have never grown out of loving the look. I was trying to think of a way to use the Wet and Wild Fantasy Makers Creepy Pumpkin so I'm so happy I thought of using it for this manicure. The colours I used were Finger Paints- Black Expressionism, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear- Sun Kissed, Wet and Wild Fantasy Makers- Creepy Pumpkin and Seche Vite. This was my first time using Seche Vite, I fell in love instantly! The smell made me a little woozy but I learned to not have my nails so close to my face when I use it haha. This lasted over a week long! Well those were my halloween manis, I hope you enjoyed them!

Thanks for reading!

My first Kleancolor and Barrielle

So first of all I would like to apologize for my lack of posts lately. I started a new/ second job so I've been very busy and haven't been around the computer much. I'm now a nanny and a receptionist haha very random but I love my jobs, the best part is I'm employed by the same person for both jobs so it equals one big pay cheque instead of two little ones :)

Ok, enough about my life. On to the polish! So for the longest time I've seen the ladies on Polish-aholics Anonymous posting about their Kleancolor hauls so I decided to look into it. Loved what I saw and placed an order for 8 of them. I was so excited to finally have some in my collection when I saw Chunky Silver at Fairweather I just grabbed it. This was even before my payment had processed for the order. I couldn't wait to add a new brand to my stash. I don't really know how I feel about this polish. It's pretty thick, the glitter tends to stick together and the smell...omg don't get me started on the smell of Kleancolor! I guess that doesn't really make it sound like I really like this polish. Well I do!.... but I've only reallly liked it over Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue so here's a picture :)

And for the Barrielle! So I bought this one at Winners for $4.99 because I thought it was pretty and as I said before I like adding new brands to my collection. I haven't done a mani with it yet so I only have a bottle picture and it does it nooo justice! I'm sure if you googled swatches of it you could find a beautiful one! In real like it's a very nice purpley/ burgundy colour, perfect for fall :)
