As Halloween approaches I decided to goth-up my almond acrylics and paint them jet black. My boyfriend didn't like it. I used 3 coat of Visually Slimming by SPOILED, and can tell it's not the blackest of blacks. It almost looked like the darkest grey in the bottle, but I thought I'd give it a try. I got it from CVS a while back and it was so runny and watery, I thought after a year of sitting in my drawer it'd thicken up, but to no avail- three watery coats to full opacity. They look like press on nails. I tried to spice it up by stamping on gold ivy from BM plate 309. It will do until I repainting this Sunday. Hopefully I'll be more inspired to do Halloween nails next week.

I was a little disappointed in myself for not thinking outside the box and reverting to animal print. I promise my next post won't be something I've done a thousand times over. Hope you enjoy!
Hello, my darlings! I am back and super excited to be blogging again. After nail school I went through a tremulous move back to Oakland and wasn't able to blog for a while. So here's my first set back: an almond shaped acrylic set with three base colors: OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, Essie School of Hard Rocks and OPI Over the Taupe. I added a 1mm rhinestone to the DPMB and SHR and on the OTT I did 3 slashes of Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in Gilty Pleasure and a black art polish. I'm going to try really hard to blog more often- I've missed all of you and thank you so much for visiting during my hiatus!! See you soonsies <3
