Halloween NA Challenge: Mummy

Hey there :) 

This post is scheduled, because as you read this I'm probably asleep or on my way to the university =)) I still have to do 2 more manis and it's already the 31st October! So here is the Mummy challenge and later today, when I come home from the uni, I'll post the other challenge. And tomorrow I'll post my favorite Halloween mani! :D

I bet everyone has seen a mummy nail art before, many girls have done them so it's nothing new =) I didn't do them on all my nails though, just as an accent on my ring finger. 
And the VNL wasn't as visible in real life! Oh, I almost forgot: I used Manhattan 12D as a base:)

Halloween NA Challenge: Ghosts

Helo, my dear readers! =) 

Quick post with the ghost nail art for the Halloween Challenge! Here are my little ghosts, inspired by many manicures I've seen on google :) 

I think they're cute ...or let's just say: I definitely wouldn't be scared by these little guys :D

Halloween NA Challenge : Spider

Hello! :)

I just came home from work and I am so exhausted but I really want to catch up with this challenge, so here it is: Spiders!

I used Catrice - Marylin & Me and Essence - Back to Black. 

Pretty creepy, huh? I knew I wanted to do a black window accent nail so I thought "why not google black widows, to see hot they look exactly?!".... worst idea EVER! I had nightmares from all the pictures, I kept thinking there are spiders everywhere in my room :D So, please listen to me: do NOT google spider images!!  

If you like creepy spider nail art, then check out these ladies!

Halloween NA Challenge: Bats

Hello, my dear readers!

I took a little break from the blog and got so behind with the nail art challenge! I'm sorry, but I started going to the university last week and I was so exhausted when I came home every day, that I didn't even paint my nails with anything worth blogging about :)
 I will definitely have to start scheduling posts, because I don't wanna let my blog and you guys down :)

So the challenge after Tombstones was "Bats" and I initially wanted to do the Batman logo, but my nails are just too small for that =)) Instead I used some cute little bat stickers on a black background: 

The polish is Essence - Hunt me if you can from the Vampire's Love LE. This polish is very similar to the one Essence just released in their Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn LE, which is why I won't buy it =)

Don't forget to check out what the other ladies did for this challenge! ;)

Halloween NA Challenge: Tombstone

Hello! :) 

Today is the day of another challenge: Tombstones! I knew this was my chance to finally try the ruffian mani again. I love this kind of design, it looks so elegant and there are so many color combinations you can do! 

But for today I chose black and grey, representing the tombstone and the dark night sky as background ;) 

I used Essence - The Dawn is Broken and Essence - Hunt Me If You Can (both from the Vampire's Love LE) and Essence - Mysterious Black for the inscription. 

I really want to wear ruffian manis more often, cause I love them! :) 
Do you like them as much as I do? Tell me your favorite style/design you like to wear on your nails! :D

Also take a look at all the other ladies and their gorgeous nails:

Halloween NA Challenge: Candy Corn

Like the title already says, today's theme is "Candy Corn" and I have to admit that I had no clue what to do for this. I've never eaten Candy Corn in my entire life and I had no idea how it really looked like (until I googled it) ...I just new it was something orange/yellow from other nail art I've seen so far. 
I was very uninspired and that's why today's nail art is not my best work ^^ 

For the gradient I used a white base and sponged Essence - Sundancer and Essence - Get the Fever on top. 

So this is it, I removed it immediately after I took the photos, just so I could paint my nails with the spiderman design :D (Which I like much better than this one)

You better go check out the other ladies and look at what they came up with ;)

Halloween NA Challenge: Spiderwebs

Hey, my beautiful readers!

I suck at this challenge ... I always mess up the dates for the challenges and I'm always late xD I'm sorry!
So, I already posted some spiderweb nail art last year and I didn't wanted to do the same thing again, so I had to come up with something else =) And that wasn't to hard since I always wanted to do a Spiderman inspired manicure! And here it is:

For the gradient I used: Sensique 124 and Sinful Colors - Neptune. The spiderwebs I did with Essence Silver Surfer.

You know what? I knew I would love this mani just as much as my last one (the bloody one), so I did the candy corn mani for tomorrow, removed it and painted this on...that way I can wear this til Saturday! Hell yeah! :D

Halloween NA Challenge - Blood

Hey there!

I totally forgot to post the second challenge! I have absolutely no clue what day it is, since I'm staying so much at home and I didn't realize it's already Friday =)) But here it finally is, my mani for the second challenge:

I used: Catrice Ultimate Nudes - My Café Au Lait At Nôtre-Dame, Essence - So Glamorous and Catrice - The Devil Wears Red.

I used 2 shades of red to kinda show different kinds of blood - light red for the fresh blood and dark red for the already dried up blood :D I assure you though, that I didn't kill anything to achieve this mani! 

If I'd go to a Halloween Party with this mani I wouldn't clean up the polish on my skin and just let it that way! Looks much more "real" that way, doesn't it? :) 

Take a look at all the other bloody nails for this challenge:

Halloween NA Challenge - Pumpkin

Maybe you've seen this challenge on other blogs or on my facebook page, I'm talking about the
Halloween Nail Art Challenge! 

Didn't Isabella just do an awesome job on this banner?? :D
For the whole month of October we will do different Halloween designs and the best thing about it? It's just 2-3 designs a week! Everyone can keep up with that :) It's not too late to join! Just head over to Kaki, she has the code for the Inlinkz app and then you are ready to go!

First challenge is: Pumpkins! 

I used: Catrice - Man,Go Tango, S-he - 452, Essence - Back to Black and Harm Limit - Crackle 18. 
This mani didn't turned out like I hoped. I'm not very happy with it, but I promise to do a better job with the other challenges :P 

I took this picture to show you how orange that crackle looks in the bottle... sadly, it didn't transfer to the nail at all! I used 2 coats and it still was very sheer :( To cover it up, I used a coat of orange glitter ...and that made it worse =))

Check out the other ladies as well! ;)
