Simples ~ Gradient with Dots

Hello Dahlings!

 
 This week's Simple's lesson is to do a gradient then add dots over it.

So I did this...
  
 Meh

(Paint It Black is currently retired.)
 
I started with 2 yummilicious coats of Mostly Ghostly.
 
Then I did my 'gradient'.
Da polishes performed beautifully, da f'upping was all on moi.
I used a bit of cosmetic sponge & for all da pouncing about
I couldn't get da colors to blend at da demarcation lines.
 
So I added 3 dots to my ring finger using my largest dotter = Ghost
 
I used da whole word from these
Using da stencil was so much easier than doing this gradient.
 
I don't know what's wrong with me.
I'm not usually this lame.
 
>^. .^<
 
 
Your claws be so lame I not looking at you.
 
Thanks for stopping by & suffering thru this mani!
Hopefully I'll find my shiz & pull it together soon.

Hello Dahlings!
 
Ever wake yourself up with a funky assed dream
then not be able to go back to sleep?

I might as well do something productive
& write up a blog post or 3.
 
This week's prompts are da 70's & Grey plus another color.
 
So I went here...
 
 I did grey & red vampire nails

So yeah, I just managed to fit in both prompts
AND do another Halloween mani. LOL

The Devil Wears Polish ~ Halloween Delight NOTW!

Hello Dahlings!
 
Yep it's Friday & I've been wearing the SAME MANI all week!
This only happens when I'm travelling
or I have a Stamp Camp coming up.
This week is a Stamp Camp prep week
& I know to put on a mani that I like
cuz I'll be looking at it all week.
It also means my cuticles get trashed
cuz I can't lube as much
& da card stock sucks all da moisture out of my skin. Blerg.
 
So I'm apologizing up front for my scary ass zombie cuticles.
 
On da bright side... I LOVE THIS MANI!!!
 
 Holo, glitter, skulls & cross bones...what's not to love?
 
 This is 2 yummilicious coats of
It's more bright neon purply than da original Afternoon Delight,
so YES, you need to get this one too.
 
 This is one coat of Halloween.
It's jam packed with small black, purple & silver bits 
along with a healthy heap o' black holo glitter!
I opted to go for 2 blingtastic coats
on my rings & thumbs for this mani.
 
 Duh! Of course I added gitd.
These water decals are from Pueen thru Amazon.
 
Looky! I found da sun!
 
Both of these must have beauties can be found in da
Discounted Prototypes  section & while you're there,
check out all da other stuff on SALE right now!
($1 from each bottle in da ILB section sold
goes to da National Breast Cancer Foundation)

Simples Week 13 ~ Skittles with Dots

Hello Dahlings!
 
This week's Simples lesson is a recap combo of 2 previous lessons:
Da Skittle mani ~ each finger is painted a different color or design
Dot mani ~ Do I really have to 'splain this one?
 
I also wanted to continue with my Halloweenie themed manis,
so I came up with this...
 
 Meh.
 
  Da line up ~ Bonita pearl white
(from da Halloween set of 4 currently available at Rite Aid),
 Princessa white pearl, neon green, neon purple & neon orange gitds
& Bonita black (from da same set as da pearl white)
 
 One coat of Bonita pearl white.
It's was a wee bit bubbly, but not all that streaky for a pearl
& pretty decent for a cheap polish.
 
 This is 2 coats of da Princessas.
They wanted to get patchy on me, but they settled down.
I like the colors in the set of 24 gitd polishes from Amazon,
(they lean more cool toned)
but the formula can be a bit dodgy
as some colors are more sticky jelly than others.
Da 24 square bottle set from Nabi on Amazon
is da better value for both price & quality.
 
I added da dots with my tiniest dotter using da Bonita black.
They didn't turn out quite how I wanted,
but at least they glowed in da dark!
 
>^. .^<
 
Ciri's love affair with bubble wrap continues...
 
 
 What's under here?
 
 Is that a molecule I sees?
 
 Pesky thingy keeps just out of reach!
 
Got it!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Crumpet's Nail Tarts Pick N' Mix ~ 60's & Texture Polish

Hello Dahlings!
 
This week's CNTPNM is da 60's & a matte or texture polish.
Da best part of this challenge
is that we can pick what we want to do with da 2 prompts!
 
I'm doing all Halloween manis this month cuz I want to.
I couldn't figure out how to combine Halloween with da 60's
& use matte or textured untrieds,
so I went with Halloween & untried texture polishes.

 Ta Da!
I used da stencils to mask off da lightning stripes,
then applied a thickish coat of da background colors.
I immediately removed da stencils with tweezers
& waited for da polish to dry...it took like forever!
(ok, more like 15-20 minutes)
I then took a tiny paint brush
& filled in da areas that had been masked.
No tc need with texture polish!

 Da untried line up ~ OPI Jinx & Alcatraz...Rocks!

which made doing this mani easy peasy!


Next up ~ 70's & gray with a color
 
>^. .^<

 What?
(Dang, I was trying to take a pic of Ciri napping in a cute position...)
Could you put your head down like it was, Ciri?
 
 That's almost it...pull you face away from da box a bit...
 
...got it! Thanks, Ciri!
(I'm not kidding, this actually happened
including my giving him verbal instructions that he followed!)
 
Thanks for stopping by &
please visit da other Tarts!
