Near Dark

First off, I swear this polish is a super dark green truly! It's a super deep almost jellyish finish dark mossy green.  When you first apply it you can see how green it is, and after two(or in my case I needed 3 to even it out completely) it turns to more of a brownish dark color.  Another Halloween color I'd consider to wear outside of October!

Glow In The Dark Comparison: Ghoulish Glow and Pure Ice GITD

After purchasing and loving the Pure Ice GITD polish from Walgreen's for $1.99 of course I "HAD" to get the Ghoulish Glow because, well, I can't pass up a polish with a cute name.  Sad isn't it?

Left to Right: Ghoulish Glow, Pure Ice, GG, Pure Ice
(Scary almost nekkid nails!) Obviously, that's what they both look like with no glow.  Ghoulish Glow is a little bit shiner than Pure Ice GITD (this seriously needs a better name than Glow In The Dark...) which dried to almost a matte finish. 
Left to Right: Ghoulish Glow, Pure Ice, GG, Pure Ice  
I held my hand up to a flashlight for one minute to get the best glowing result and the Pure Ice GITD defiantly glowed better than Ghoulish Glow! Overall I love both of them and can't wait to actually use Ghoulish Glow in a manicure soon!

Fantasy Makers

I promised myself I wouldn't buy either of these...until I saw them 40% off at Jewel.  Apparently I can pass them up at $1.99 but at $1.19 I couldn't. Leave it to me to not pass something up 80cents cheaper.  I purchased Black Magic and Purple Potion. Neither of them are very exciting or interesting the cute tombstone bottles sure make up for it!  PP is a purple glitter in a black base and BM is just a typical black with silver glitter in it.

Saved by the Blue and Daisies

This obviously isn't a Halloween mani but I need to start using the polish from my untried bin.

Halloween Mani #1

Excuse the start of my cuticles, I've been coming into contact with MRSA disinfectant from football.  It's been killer on my hands! Here's my first Halloween mani! I used WnW Sunny Side up for the orange on the pointer finger and for the eyes on my middle finger.  WnW Black Creme on middle and as a base for Sally Hansen Pumpkin Spice, and a CG crackle.  I'm not a huge fan of crackle, but I'm feeling it for this mani.
I hope you guys have had an amazing weekend!

Car Manicures

I needed to do my nails badly.  So I brought along my lap desk and my box of nail care staples to go apple picking in Michigan with my family and some family friends. This year has officially been the 18th annual apple picking for us!  The ride was about 2 hours long and for almost the entire way I did a striped tape manicure using Butter LONDON Wallis and Suzi loves Cowboys by OPI.  I've been in love with SLC since I got it.  It's the perfect chocolatey brown color, and on a more conceited note it matches my eyes almost perfectly! Wallis is currently my favorite military-ish green color that's in my stash, so I thought the combo would be perfect together.
I originally thought I'd be able to take a picture while I was out in the orchard, but I was became busy eating apples, stepping on the rotten ones of the ground, throwing said squished rotten apples at my twin, and climbing trees so unfortunately, this is a very badly taken cell phone picture and I do apologize. 
I also apologize for the state of my nails! They need to be shaped, and my cuticles need some lovin'! I've been covered almost every day in a special disinfectant to get rid of MRSA, which I spray over everything, helmets, shoulder pads, tables, wrist bands, and the footballs themselves.  I should probably try using gloves when I'm disinfecting. 
I hope you all have a great week!
