Hey There Polished People- Happy Halloween!!!
Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for all month. In my area it means it will most definitely rain and I’ll be bothered to answer the door about 5 times for cute kids in costumes covered by jackets, and another 20 times for teens with barely passable costumes and who don’t even say thank you. I’m seriously considering just turning out my light. Lucky for the kids, I think Daniel’s too nice and is going to make us hand out candy. Ehh whatever. Even though I’m a real party pooper this year, I do enjoy Halloween. It’s fun! As an adult, you get to get dressed up in some silly outfit and get crazy for a night. Don’t get too crazy though or you’ll puke on your pigtail! I learned that lesson the hard way a couple of years ago. Oof.
As a kid I allllllways went out trick or treating, usually with a group of my cousins. My mom and dad would take us down to my aunt’s and we’d meet up with my cousins and go trick-or-treating in their neighborhood. It was really fun, except that it was always colder than heck, so my mom would always make us wear our jackets. Some years we could fit them under our costumes, but I remember one year when I was a cave woman I had to wear it over my costume and it was terribly lame. Als0, when I was little I was REALLY into ninjas. I do not know why. I think because of that movie called something like “The Three Little Ninjas.” I remember one of their names was Colt. Anyway, I looooved ninjas so I went trick-or-treating as a ninja for like three years. Annnnnd since I had such a sweet costume, all black including a full face mask, everyone would open the door and be like “Little boy, what are you supposed to be?” I’d be like “Hey, I’m a girl!” hahaha. No one knew cuz all my blonde hair was tucked inside my awesome head mask thingy. Anyway, times have changed and my favorite costume I’ve worn recently was probably a vampire from the roaring twenties. I really just wanted to wear vampire fangs, so I did, with this really cute red fringey flapper dress. I even did my hair in all these pin curls… ugh it was so cute. The year before last I was a nerdy school girl, hence the puking on my pigtails. Okaaayyyy enough about me- let’s see today’s nails!
Gold Medal Pumpkin Nails
How To Get These Nails
- Base coat. I use SH Hard As Nails.
- Apply 3 coats of OPI Goldeneye (from the new Skyfall collection) to all but the ring finger nail.
- Apply 3 coats of OPI Flit A Bit to your ring finger nail.
- Apply Seche Vite to all nails and allow them to dry and harden.
- When all your nails are dry and hard, use BM203 and Konad special black polish to stamp the x’s design onto each nail.
- Next, use stamp BM222 and Essie As Gold As It Gets to stamp the pumpkin on the ring finger nail.
- Apply a very careful coat of Seche Vite onto each nail and call it macaroni!!
