Cobwebs and Spiders

This became a one big mess!! I'm investing in a better striping brush today because the ones I own are crap.
I started with the cobwebs and thought that it was going great, then I decide to do a spider, BIG fail.
I still decided to post it, you know, the good, the bad and the ugly ;)

When I get the new striping brushes I'm ordering from Born Pretty Store there will be a point two 
take on this one.

Peppermint Taffy

The boutique I work in is a little bit out of town and is right next to a shop called the Christmas Garden and as the name says its full of Christmas-y things and is open all year round. 
One of the things the Christmas garden is famous for here is their considerable variety of taffy caramels that come in many tastes and colors.
I try not to go in there so often because the caramels call to me, they tell me to eat them all (!!!!), but for rare special occasions when I want to treat myself  I go and buy a (mountain of them) a few I and always think to myself that they are perfect nail art inspiration and if I can contain myself and won't eat them all at once, I could do a series of taffy inspired nail art. What do you think? Good idea? 

But anyway, on to the nail art.
Here's the first one, peppermint taffy.


Polishes used:
OPI - Alpine Snow
Essie - Peach Daiquiri


I'm eating the caramel as I'm writing this, it's heavenly!

A Makeover!

As you can probably see if you follow my blog I gave it a makeover, I've been blogging now for over a year and thought it was time for a change. New layout, much simpler and cleaner than the standard blogger one I had but still with a splash of pink to it, and added social media buttons so it would be easier to follow or contact me. I can't say that I'm one hundred percent happy with it but it'll do for now.

Tell me what you think.

Leaves In The Snow

I had a feeling about this, everything is covered in snow, it's beautiful to see the snow cover the bright autumn colors and I wanted to try to interpret that on my nails.

Fall Is Almost Over

It started snowing today and I got a little melancholy over it, I'm not a snow person, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have fibromyalgia and snow means cold, cold means pain.
In my desperation over the snow I got out my fall color polishes and decided I needed to use them before winter starts for real.

This is what I came up with.

Juicy Tomatoes

After the September-challenge craziness I'm trying to set myself blogging goals and actually following them through, this is not the first time I finish a challenge and then fall into a blogging rut, don't know what to blog about and what to paint on my nails, also up until now I've only posted sporadically, whenever the mood strikes or I do a pretty manicure, but now I want to put a little more effort into it and see how that goes.

For starters I've started several inspiration books where I can write things like prompts and themes, color schemes and trying to plan ahead for Christmas, Halloween, future challenges and such or if I don't know what to do I can look into my inspiration books and find something I like and want to try.
Well we'll see how that goes.

These are juicy tomatoes, I actually don't like tomatoes that much, the texture or something, I'm not sure, doesn't go well with me but I like these I did on my nails.
Are tomatoes fruits or vegetables?

Polishes used:
OPI - Alpine Snow
OPI - Cajun Shrimp

31DC2014 Day 31 - Honor Nails You Love

THE LAST DAY AF THE CHALLENGE!!!
Thought this sentence deserved cap locks.
It's been a fun but difficult month filled with empty bottles of polish remover, dirty paintbrushes, lots of scotch tape and headaches over nail polish fumes, but it's over and at the same time I'm so glad it's over I'm also sad because I had so much fun and now I have to go find my own prompts, lol.
I'm giving myself a promise that I'll keep a better schedule (blog vise) now than before the challenge, I just have to stop procrastinating so much and just do things.

For this last one I decided to recreate Glitter Fingersss's Half Moons. I only recently started following her blog but every nail design she does blows me away.


Polishes used:
Cult Nails - Thrive
Kleancolor Nail to Toe striper - Beaming Pink




See what I did last year: 31DC2013
