Glam Nails Challenge October — Ghost 👻

Good morning lovelies & happy Wednesday!

We are officially half way through our week, & that means it’s time for another prompt for GlamNailsChallegeOctober! I’m really loving all these Halloween themed looks. This month is just such a fun month to get creative when it comes to your nails — & I’ve been loving all the looks I have shared so far.

Today’s prompt is: ghost! & I was especially excited for this prompt because I really wanted to try out the negative space peek-a-boo ghost design I’ve been seeing all over Instagram lately. I think its such a cute look, so I had to take a stab at my own version!

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Blush Around the World
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
  • Starrily Vantablack
  • Sally Hansen CSM So Much Fawn
  • NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio
  • NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush

How cute did these little ghosties turn out? I love how adorable my little happy ghosts are. Like I said, I’ve been really loving seeing other versions of this design, & just had to give it my own try. Also, I feel like this is a really good look for someone who wants to try out some Halloween designs, but doesn’t want to go. to crazy.

This is definitely more of a subtle design, versus some of the Halloween designs I’ve done recently. You could even make your ghosts more subtle, if you want a Halloween nail art look that isn’t as obvious that it’s Halloween-y. This is also a super easy look to do for someone on the beginner side of nail art.

What do you think about this nail art look? Would you wear these little ghosts on your nails?

Let me know what you think about this design, & all the designs I’ve been sharing this month!

Glam Nails Challenge October — Graveyard 🪦

Good morning lovelies & happy Tuesday! Anyone else still recovering from the weekend?

This past weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving, so on top of working all weekend, I am a little wrung out. Hence my super late posting of these graveyard nails for GlamNailsChallengeOctober! I was actually pumped for these, because it gave me a change to pull out my What’s Up Nails graveyard vinyls I got courtesy of NailPolishCanada a few years ago.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • OPI Give Me Space
  • Starrily Space Debris
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
  • What’s Up Nails Graveyard Stencils
  • NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush

First off, loving adding Starrily Space Debris over every polish lately for some extra holo sparkle — it looks especially good over OPI Give Me Space. I thought it was a nice starry background for my graveyards. It’s been a while since I used the stencils so I struggled a bit. You can kind of see it on my middle finger — so I went with it, & created a little ghosty, haunting my graveyard.

What do you think about these graveyard nails? Have you started to create some Halloween designs, & prep for festivities? What will you be dressing up as this year? Let me know in the comments below!

Glam Nails Challenge October — Spider 🕸

Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! Half way through the week already — can you believe it?! We’re also already on our second prompt for GlamNailsChallengeOctober… & my second Halloween design of the season.

Today’s prompt: Spider. 🕷🕸

Which, anyone who knows me, knows is one of my least favourite things in the whole wide world. But for nail art, I guess I can do it. So I decided, why not do some holo-ween spiders! Because holo makes everything better!

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • Color Club Sidewalk Psychic
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod!
  • Starrily Vantablack
  • Layla Cosmetics Flash Black
  • NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush
  • NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio

How much fun are these? Again, spiders are not my favourite thing. In fact, I’ve been known to run screaming away from a spider, usually in tears. But these holo spiders turned out pretty cute, so I don’t mind wearing them on my nails.

October is the one month a year where spiders on my nails are okay, haha.

I really, really wanted to rock some holographic nails for this look. I thought this holographic orange-y colour was perfect as the base for this nail art. Plus we’ve had some beautiful sunny days the last few days, which were just calling for some holo.

What do you think about this nail art look? Are you currently rocking any Halloween designs? What is your favourite Halloween nail art design to do? Let me know in the comments below!

Glam Nails Challenge October — Skull 💀

Hello lovelies & happy Monday! Today we’re getting into the spooky season with this month’s GlamNailsChallenge: skull ☠️ .

Now that it’s October I feel like I can finally really start getting into the Halloween nail art looks. & it also means that I can finally use a brand new stamping plate I recently bought via NailPolishCanada.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

First off, I can’t believe this is my first time using one of the Color Club stamping plates — they stamp amazing! I was super impressed with how easily I picked up the image & applied it to my nails. It was a very speedy experience, which was way faster than how stamping usually goes for me. Originally I had only planned on an accent nail or two, but everything applied so easily that I just kept going, & got all 10 fingers stamped in like 15 minutes.

Second, I love how lovely the silver is over the purple. A nice spooky skull design, perfect for my first Halloween look of October!

What do you think about this skull design? Are you excited for Halloween designs? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below, & what Halloween designs you plan on doing this month!

St Patrick’s Day Rainbows 🌈🍀

Hello my loves, & Happy St Patrick’s Day! I

t’s another quiet year, obviously, but I had to do something fun on my nails. I had this image in my head of a rainbow over a pretty green, & I think that the end result turned out exactly how I had pictured. I even managed to sneak in a little holo too.

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
  • Top Coat: Essie Good to Go
  • Wrenn Polish I Know Guac Is Extra
  • Deborah Lippmann It’s Raining Men
  • Essie Sunshine State Of Mind
  • Essie Check Your Baggage
  • Essie Off Tropic
  • Sally Hansen Cerulean
  • Essie No More Film
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Va Va Violet
  • Starrily Eclipse
  • NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush

I love how these turned out, even though they were super time consuming haha. Who know 7 stripes of colour could be so much work. I also totally did my colours backwards, but you know what… I still think they’re awesome, & I hope you do too! & of course, I had to add a little holo to really bring my rainbow to life!

What do you think of my St Patrick’s Day rainbow nails? Are you wearing a special green design today? Let me know in the comments below! 🌈🍀💗
