Happy Halloween everyone! To celebrate, I painted Coraline. I was almost going to dress up as her for Halloween since I already have a cheese-whiz yellow rain coat, but I’m missing the yellow rainboots and a blue wig. Maybe next year
I used ILNP Black Orchid, a beautiful plum holographic as my base and complimented it with piCture pOlish Honey Dew, a bright mint green. Orange really doesn’t suit my skin tone, so I try to find alternatives to painting Halloween themed looks without using orange too much.
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.
I’m actually still a noob when it comes to stamping, so this is still mediocre at best. Hopefully I’ll get a better hang of it. I think there’s more give when it’s a full nail stamp versus a more precise design like this one where you have to make sure it lines up with your nails properly. I’m sure there are some techniques I could try to get a better placement of the design.

China Glaze Pink of Me 3 coats and a top coat
Pink of Me is all kinds of adorable. I love the color. It’s a pale pink tone that’s perfect for weddings or other types of occasions. It comes from the 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness Collection by China Glaze. It takes a little working through, but you can get a good coat by 3 layers.
China Glaze Float On 3 coats and a top coat
What a fun and bright pop of color. Yes summer is over, but it doesn’t mean your summer nails are over. Break out this neon pink to stand out from the dark polishes we might be seeing a lot of during autumn. The formula is a little heavy, so try and stay easy on the coats. Float On is from the 2014 Off Shore Collection.
