It’s Just A Bunch of Hocus Pocus

Being traditional, I had to partake in the OPI Halloween nail art contest again this year. My last years design (Nightmare Before Christmas) would have worked well since the theme was Halloween Movies. Well here’s the thing, now EVERYONE is doing Nightmare Before Christmas, so I did Hocus Pocus!

Thumb is the book of spells, index is Sarah Jessica Parker Playing Sarah, Middle is Bette Midler playing Winnie, Index is Kathy Najimy playing Mary, the pinky is the black flame candle.

For this design I used (all OPI) Nail Envy as a base coat, Don’t Mess With OPI, Black Onyx, Alpine Snow, Pros & Bronze, DS Coronation, DS Radiance, San Tan-tonio, A-Taupe The Space Needle, Suzi Loves Cowboys, Fiercely Fiona, Congeniality is My Middle Name, Golden Rules, Roadhouse Blues, Take The Stage, A Ruby For Rudolph, I Only Drink Champagne, Blue My Mind!, and a swish of Seche Vite Top Coat.

I didn’t really enter to win, it was just a nice tradition to participate annually :) The ladies that entered really made me up my game- some seriously talented nail artists are coming out of the woodwork! I actually sort of love/hate my design here but I’m too lazy to redo anything on it HAH! Oh well, what’s a girl to do. Cross for beautifully painted finger(nails) for me!

Sincerely Yours

WOW its been FOREVER! I know I’ve been missing in action and to all of you who have been messaging me and wondering where I am, I’ll explain. I’ve been looking hard for work and nearly had a lead or two but they all fell through. I’ve decided that while I’m still a meteorologist, I’m also going to branch out into the creative side of advertising. I’ve really had to focus on searching for work and prioritizing my time so the blog fell onto the back burner. HOWEVER, I do have a design for your today!!!

 

You know how I get strange inspiration? I was browsing the clearance bins at Barnes N Noble and they had GORGEOUS stationary on sale. Unfortunately the ones for T and F were pink/purple which clearly sucks for me, so I just snapped pictures of the patterns I loved. Hence, today’s design:

For this design I used OPI Nail Envy as a base, with two coats of OPI Dating A Royal. The design itself includes (all OPI) Alpine Snow, Black Onyx, Golden Rules!, and What’s With the Cattitude?, topped off with a swipe of Seche Vite.

And since a little birdie told me you all like to see the inspiration:

Obviously not quite as detailed as the stationary but seriously, my nails are only so big! :)

 

So yeah, missed you all! I hope to post more regularly now because I’ve realized that I can’t stop doing my blog because I’m looking for work- if I don’t do my stress-relieving-hobbies, then the job search burns me out and I get depressed and can’t focus. So spending SOME time on “me” time helps keep me fresh. So look out, you’ll be seeing more of me again! xoxo Tara The Terror

Bob Barker’s The Man

I felt like doing a FUN design today so what better to do than an old game show!! Today’s design is based off of The Price is Right!

 

For this design I used all OPI, Nail Envy, Don’t Mess With OPI, Suzi Says Feng Shui, Dating A Royal, Gargantuan Green Grape, Green-wich Village, You’re Such A Kabuki Queen, What’s With The Cattitude?, The IT Color, Black Onyx, Alpine Snow, Golden Rules!, Quarter of a Cent-ury, and Seche Vite Top Coat.

 

This design is the logo of the show, the main background (green thing), the Plinko game, The Giant Wheel, the pointer on the wheel and then on the other hand is the contestants guesses for prices- 100, 2, 698, and 1 and then I gave myself a contestant name tag :)
