CNT Pick N' Mix week 4 ~ 70s & Gray plus a color

Hello Dahlings!
 
Ever wake yourself up with a funky assed dream
then not be able to go back to sleep?
I really don't enjoy it,
but as long as I'm up so gawd awful early for me,
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
using polishes from The Devil Wears Polish
along with some Halloween stickers I got on Amazon...
So yeah, I just managed to fit in both prompts
AND do another Halloween mani. LOL
 
(both of these beauties are ON SALE right NOW!)
 
 This is 2 buttery smooth coats of Graveyard Grey.
Look at those fab rainbows in this blue leaning grey!
Fling was just as fab to use!
 
>^. .^<
 
I gives you a bite if you no gives me cat treats...NOW!
 
Thanks for stopping by
& please go visit da other Tarts!

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!

Sundays are for Swatchoramas!

Hello Dahlings!
 
Yeah, it's been like forever since I posted on a Sunday.
I got so behind on my Show & Tell haul posts as well as my
Does it Stamp? posts that getting back on track has been tough.
 
So I decide to try something new!
For at least da next few weeks
I'll be posting polish collections from
 
Why just this brand?
 
I LOVE TAMI & HER POLISH!!!
If I didn't, I wouldn't want to promote it.
It takes time to paint my nails, take good pics,
remove da polish & repeat several times.
Then comes da selecting, cropping & making sure da polish
is as color accurate as possible. 
(So if you think swatchers get 'free' polish, we don't.
We spend hours earning those polishes.
It easily takes 1 hour per polish from painting my nails
to emailing Tami da finished pics.)
So yeah, this is a sponsored post.
 
So let me introduce you to da 
All swatches are 2 coats over basecoat.
If I added top coat I will note it with
that pic along with da link to that polish.
Tami's new formula is fast drying & butterlicious!!!
 
This is with tc under LED light,
but in da shade this multichrome shows it's true colors...
 
 ...you get shifts of gold, copper, green, blue & even purple peeks out.
This pic shows da green, gold & copper.
 
 I caught a bit of da blue around da edges here.
 
~~~
 
 Be My Frankenstein under LED light.
A lovely medium green
with a moderate golden holo rainbow.
 
~~~
 
 Demonic (w/tc) is one of those photographic challenges.
Under LED it looks like a medium dark brown holo...
 
 ...but indirect lighting brings out da copper, blue & purple.
I love polishes that have something fun
going on no matter what da lighting!
 
~~~
 
 Geist w/tc under LED
Multichromes are so fun when da weather changes
since gray days can bring out all da pretty colors! 
 
 I caught a bit of da purple, blue, green & gold here.
 
~~~
 
 Graveyard Gray under LED
This blue leaning gray is one of my favs of this collection!
You can see it in action in my Party in da Graveyard mani
(I have 2 more manis featuring this polish posting this month.)
 
~~~
 
 Haunt Me w/tc under LED.
 
 When I saw this beauty in da shade,
I didn't want to take it off!
I caught da green, blue & purple here...
 
 ...and da purple & pink here!
 
~~~
 
 Mostly Ghostly under LED
This grayish white also has a subtle pinky purple
shimmer that likes to play peek-a-boo.
Another must have for holo polish enthusiasts!
(I used it for da base color in my Party in the Graveyard mani
as well as for another mani coming soon.)
 
~~~
 
 Zombies Need Holo 2 under LED
This one is a warmer olive green compared to BMF.
The Zombie mani I posted on Friday is to celebrate
the season 5 of The Walking Dead starting TONIGHT.
Methinks this is another must have if you like earthy greens!
 
 
Guess what?
ALL of these polishes are on SALE RIGHT NOW!!!
So save yourself some moola while getting your paws
on this Most Excellent Halloween 2014 Collection!
 
Okay, one more Halloween polish to taunt & tease you with...
 
Ghoul under LED
This bright green holo is to be found in
(It's also used in da Party in da Graveyard mani.)
It may or may not live to see a new life in da core holo line...
...so grab yourself a bottle
when you're stuffing your cart with Halloween polish
 
>^. .^<
 
Go get some of dose pretties for your claws
or I zap you wif my laser eyes!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
