With Halloween just around the corner I decided to paint Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas last weekend. Finally had some time this weekend to pull the photos off my camera to post.
He glows in the dark using Julep Casper layered over a coat of white nail polish. The glow looks better the longer you let it charge under the light. It’s been kind of funny going to bed these last few nights and seeing the skeleton and the moon glow on my nails. Unfortunately I didn’t capture a really good photo of the glow before I chipped these. Maybe next time, I will have a black light ready! In the meantime, you’ll just have to imagine a yellow-y light green glow.
It’s been awhile since I posted last. Daisy has been holding up the fort, and I really appreciate it. The reason that I’ve been MIA is that I gave birth to my daughter and I’ve been mainly in recovery mode, as well as mommy mode. So Petite Peinture had to take a backseat for just a little bit until I get myself adjusted to this new schedule.
October has somehow flew by, and I can’t believe Halloween is next week. So I decided to do a really quick and easy nail design to post. I used my favorite nude polish by Deborah Lippmann to extend the tone of my skin. Added a tip of bright green and used a thin paint brush to paint on the stitches.
For today’s nail art, I decided to start off with a base of the beautiful piCture pOlish Lagoon. It is a beautiful glitter/scatter holo mix suspended in turquoise. I love the depth of the glitter in this polish, the hex glitters add such a nice touch! It’s like little bubbles in the water.
To compliment this polish, I decided to paint the Little Mermaid and her buddy Flounder on top. I used some rhinestones from the bornprettystore (#7300). The package came with a number of colors but for this look I only used the dark blue as little bubbles.
From Julep‘s July Maven 2014 box, I received Bombshell box that included Beverly (the beautiful dark purple creme pictured in this post) and Lissa (turquoise).
The formula for Beverly is pretty awesome. I have to say, in general, the formula in the more recent boxes have been a huge improvement in comparison to some of the boxes I received last year. This was fully opaque after 2 thin-medium coats and worked well as a base for my tape mani. The glitter I layered on top was from a sample I received in a purchase from Rainbow Honey in December, I haven’t seen it officially released on Rainbow Honey yet but I hope she does soon because it’s quite pretty.
