Ghostly Halloween Mani

I got a nice little surprise when I turned on my camera yesterday--pictures of a ghost manicure that somehow didn't make it to the blog.  This one is just a bit of dotting and tweaking with nail art polish and some letter stamping.

Halloween Mani: Vampire Princess

This was originally supposed to be  Pink Wednesday manicure, but I started too late and... that's okay, because it cave me more time to come up with this concept.  Once I saw the lip stamp on my plate, I knew exactly what to do.  Add in some new acquisitions from a great sale on nail art polish ($0.49 each!), and we have a vampire manicure on princess pink nails.

Halloween Mani: Murder Crashed the Party

So you're at an awesome Halloween party.  The music has everyone moving.  Drinks are flowing.  Everyone's decked out and made up and looking great--from the sexy to the dorky to the creepy.

Then all of a sudden, a guy (or is it?) walks in with a chainsaw.  He gets some welcoming smiles and a few laughs. People who think they know who's behind the mask pat him on the back.  Others are trying to figure out who the newcomer is.

He gets a drink, and the party goes on as normal.  That is, until you hear the chainsaw rev.  It's an odd sort of grumble at first, and then the roar cuts through the music. A subsequent scream can't even compete with the noise, but that changes once people see the limp, bloody body on the floor.  By this time, the DJ has abandoned his booth, and the music is on its own, drowned out by shrieks of terror.

Next thing you know, you're on the floor groaning as life slowly drains from you. You let out one last pained gasp as you realize the last thing you'll ever see is that underneath the blood spatters, your murderer is rocking a killer manicure.

Manicure: ???

I've been meaning to do a post with this polish for a while  It's a cheapie that caught my eye in a dollar store.  Jordana in Smooth Blue is a much-welcome addition to my collection.

I decided to do a stamping manicure to test and see if it should go on the stamping polish page, and the results--Well, it stamps, but the color I put it over wasn't the best choice, so I'll have to try again with a different base color.
