DWTS inspired mani- spider webs

DWTS just had their Halloween special on Monday and it was great! I got inspired by the orange and blue spider web background they had up in between dances that it inspired me to to a some what similar mani.

Here is a view of the backdrop they were using when interviewing people:

I did did a full set of acrylic nails this time and I felt that I did a great job the acrylic was nice and flat and not bumpy, but the nails still keep popping off when I  Am I not using enough glue? Not enough acrylic? Any tips would help a girl out.

I Vant to Suck your Blood

Yay! Its Halloween season and trying to get together ideas of what to be. I really want to do the barbie in a box thing, but it does consist of a lot of work. I will show my thoughts and ideas at the bottom of the page. I decided to do Vampire nails to get myself more in the spirit of the month. I got the tutorial from Rock Your Locks.  Instead of putting vampire fangs on each of my nails I decided to space them out and used red glitter to represent blood.

N.A.I.L.- Hallow E’en

OMG I think is the first N.A.I.L. post that I did it the week it was supposed to be done and not the week after! Again I know I should take more time to do these and would have a better turn out, but I was doing so much rushing around that I can’t sit still to dedicate nail time.

I got inspired by this background:

Here it is in normal lighting ( work) :

N.A.I.L. Hallowe e'enI did a gradient using white and 2 of my orange polishes. Then painted the ground, the tree ( if that’s what you want to call it), and the crosses with black acrylic paint.  I used nail polish for my stamps on my pinky and pointer finger.

For my thumb I tried to paint a house.

N.A.I.L. hallow e'enI decided to take a picture without any lights over my nail and it looks like it is glowing ( no black lights or special effects were used)

N.A.I.L.- Treats and Sweets

I love Halloween candy my ultimate fave is candy corn. I have done 2 manis with it before so tried to steer away from it. I opted to do caramel apples. I am not a fan of this Halloween treat nor have I ever had one.  I opted to do all my nails to look like red apple with caramel dripping down and the accent nail as a green apple. Definitely need to work on my drips, but it does not help that I was doing this at 3:00 in the morning watching scary movies. Sorry for the lack of clean up.
