This Is Halloween, This Is Halloween

I was always one of those kids who had to snoop for presents at Christmas because I hated waiting for Christmas Day. I’m still to this day one of those people who get so excited about giving someone something that I think they’ll like- so I usually spill the beans on what it is before the actual holiday. As such, is it any wonder that the design I wanted to save for Halloween Night would be done before it even was October? I wanted to do this design for so many reasons…. and so, I gave in and did it today!!!

You A Gamblin’ Man, Santy?
For this manicure, I started off with one coat of OPI’s Natural Nail Base Coat and two coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black as a base. I then used ALLL of these colors for the details:
I then topped off with two coats of Seche Vite Top Coat. Whew!
So, are you as excited for Halloween as I am????

ALSO! I in fact had more than one request for my Kiss My Ras(s)pberry franken recipe so here it is!
I started with one bottle of Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Quick Clear. I added about half of a container of Fantasy Makers Confetti (made by the same people that own Wet N Wild and I bought it in my supermarket as part of their Halloween display for like, $3)
I mixed all of the glitter in and tested the formula for glitter density, and then added about a 1/5th of a bottle of Nina Ultra Pro’s Love Struck (just got it on clearance at Sally’s for $1.99 and had to figure out the name). I mixed for several minutes and bam! Kiss My Ras(s)pberry was born. I also added a tiny bit (maybe 5 or so drops) of a Fantasy Maker’s hot red mini that I have, no name. But any red would do I suppose.

  7. Oh yes. Super excited! We always try to go as a therewith the kids. Last year was Scooby doo! This year might be Super Mario Bros. :) I love the design you did! Especially the one with Jack walking on the cliff. Very, very cool. :D

  8. This is amazing! I love this movie, it is one of my favorites. I am very excited for Halloween as well.

    I think I may have this song stuck in my head all day now, haha. :)

  9. :-) I'm glad you all liked the design! This actually didn't take very long, maybe an hour and a half? I took longer than usual because I had lots of layers and was avoiding the bubbles of doom when you paint layers over wet polish. With fewer layers it probably wouldn't have taken an hour…

    This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Its stuck in my head, too!

  10. OMG. I totally emailed this to like 30 of my friends and we're all in agreeance, THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!! You never cease to amaze me Tara, keep up the good word honey.
