Halloween is my favorite holiday, and since its close (okay, I start counting down again from November 1st, so to me, its close) I had to do a manicure of the Halloween Trick or Treat Staple- DOTS! In my neighborhood growing up, you couldn’t hit one house without scoring yourself a pack of these chewy gooey delicious little gems. So, in honor of the upcoming day:
For this manicure, I started out with one coat of OPI’s Natural Nail Base Coat and two coats of Sally Hansen’s Lavender Cloud on every finger except the thumb, where I used three coats of OPI’s The IT Color. I then proceeded to use OPI’s The It Color for the yellow dots, OPI’s Chop-Sticking To My Story for the Orange Dots, Nina Ultra Pro’s Salsa for the green dots, Essie’s A-List for the red dots, and a mix of A-List and Lavender Cloud for the pink dots. I used Orly’s La Playa for the Blue lettering and highlighed everything with Sally Hansen’s Lavender Cloud. I finished up with two coats of Seche Vite.
I love this manicure but it hurts my teeth just looking at it!
Also, I promised you a surprise (on Twitter) and here it is! I tend to… spill… acetone and nail polish (occasionally) on Rafik’s and my coffee table (with two end tables it was $20 so I’m not dying out of guilt but I felt pretty bad), My dad must be cringing if he’s reading this- this isn’t the first table I ruined (which explains why nail polish was banned to the bathroom when I was growing up :-) So, being the supportive man Rafik is, he agreed to let me paint the top instead of being upset! That way, I can get paint on it ON PURPOSE! I had totally different ideas for this, but I like how it turned out.
The table itself is all black and very geometric, so I love how it turned out because the color ends right at the top edge so it looks kind of neat.
What do you think?
