Today I created a Halloween-perfect candy corn mani. I have wanted to try a candy corn manicure for YEARS but I thought it would be impossible. But today I was just so excited to paint my nails because I haven't for more than 21 days (seriously!), so I knew it was time to try something new.
I started with two coats of OPI Need Sunglasses? Next I applied two coats of OPI Flit a Bit. I finished with a thick coat of white polish using the Kiss Nail Art striper. After all that dried, I applied Seche Vite so that this mani will last all weekend.
And a little unplanned spookiness...
as I was digging through my polish bins looking for orange polishes, this guy jumped up at me. I barreled out of the room screaming like a banshee, then tip toed back a few minutes later to snap a picture. He's kind of hovering near the top of the container. I tried to lay the lid back on like it was (in hopes that J could just escort my polishes and the spider outside in one trip) but he darted out when I tried to do that. Yeeks... that is one BIG spider to be hanging out with my polishes.
I also took a few pictures of the start of our Halloween decor. J and I LOVE Halloween; each year, we're the crazy house with all the spooky decor (we actually need to tone it down this year - last year some kids were too scared to come to our front door!) We have skeletons and giant spiders and spooky statues throughout the house too (as well as the decor I love - cute, non-scary pumpkins and black cats).
The Raven is our nod to Edgar Allen Poe.
And on a separate note, Happy 6th Anniversary, Justin :)
I hope you all have a fun weekend!!
Pumpkin picking, anyone?
PS: this is only the start of the Halloween fun here! I have a smorgasboard of orange polishes all lined up and ready to swatch, plus a few other spooky designs to try out!!
