I love the color name Mushi, Mushi.

It is amazing how much longer a pedicure will last. I could let mine go 2 or 3 weeks, easy. The same polish will be chipping off my nails 12 hours later, but it clings to the toes.

I really need to do something with my nails today. I used sinful colors snake skin magnetic polish in captivate me, as accents, with my over easy. It did absolutely nothing when I held the magnet over it. I then painted one nail a different color, to see how I liked it. I look a mess, and just found out I'm supposed to go out to dinner tonight.

I do my fingernails once a week usually, but sometimes they can last longer, up to 2 weeks (I don't use a top coat and add another coat of color, mid-manicure).
Pedicures last a month or so (again adding a new coat every week or 2).

What nail polish do you have on at the moment?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1350166783.464944.jpg

Obviously not my nails. The polish looks stark white in every photo I take myself.

i think i might have posted something earlier in the week about not buying more nail polish after last week's purchases...

but... in my defense, it only cost $3 and it is one of those with the tiny thin brush for doing designs AND i got black so i could at least do orange with black dots for Halloween.

i don't need an intervention, do i?

I'm back to Revlon Ruby Ribbon (the matte). I really do need some more nail polish colours

Have I told you how much I love The Nail Nerd? Well, I'm getting ready to show you, many times

I was looking for her Corpse Nails because I thought it might be fun to slightly creep up my Decades of Dysfunction. I'm now in love with so many Halloween related, spooky, creepy and freaky, cool & cute designs. Hopefully they will give you some Halloween nail art inspiration.

Now the good/cool stuff. Some isn't necessarily Halloween themed, but it works.

2 more Halloween/dark themed and 3 unrelated that I find precious.

Another silhouette: (I've been wanting to silhouettes based on an enamel pendant my mom bought in the 70's. It's much darker)

Nails Inc Foubert's Place (not me):



Trying to decide on the toes.

Why is Sephora no longer selling Cadogan Square? Guess I'll have to start hoarding what I have because it's my favorite of favorite colors.

So I tried Nailtiques 2 (not plus) as a base. Fail. It's started chipping already but they were grown out enough to clip fortunately. Next I'll try the same combo with Beauty Secrets Moisturizing base and see if I get the same chipping.

This is Essie Midnight Cami - just one coat. Such a pretty blue. (Pardon the need for tidying up.)
