Horror Movie Character - BHB Spooktober Challenge Mani: Day 24

I have been planning for a while what I was going to do for the Horror Movie Character prompt of BHBSpooktober.  It was my friend's idea.  Her favorite holiday is Halloween, and her favorite Halloween horror movie is Trick 'r Treat.  So I give you Sam.  More pics and info after the jump, just click on the "Read More" link below.

Candy Corn Mani - BHB Spooktober Challenge: Day 17

Heads up.
This post is going to have a lot of pics.  =)

Day 17 was a Candy Corn inspired mani.  I was terribly uninspired by this prompt, only because I didn't want to go with tried and true, or unoriginal.  I like how these turned out, quirky as they seem.  More pics, including my inspiration, after the jump.  Click the "Read More" link below.

Mama Halloween Mani

I have a quick, fun post for you.  I did my mom's nails for Halloween.  She really liked my pebble ghosts, so that's what she wanted.  I was happy to oblige.  =)

I used Sinful Colors Courtney Orange (which I just realized I had in my collection after drooling over everyone else that has been using it!!  It's the perfect Halloween orange!) and Essie For the Twill Of It as the base colors.

I used Essie Marshmallow for the pebble ghosts and Essie Licorice for the eyes and mouths.  To do the ghosts, I put one thin coat of For the Twill Of It on, let it dry.  Then I put a thick coat on and immediately dripped dots of Essie Marshmallow on top.  Love how they turned out!!

Then Mama wanted black cats stamped on her thumbs.  I wasn't thrilled with the quality I got with the first stamp (the one on the left) using my Cici&Sisi stamper, so I pulled out my XL BPS squishy stamper and shrank the image.  It was my first time shrinking an image!  He looks so funny with his skinny little cat legs.  x-D

I dipped into my untried polishes for this mani.  I wanted to take a quick Halloween mani breather before delving into my next one.  More pics and info after the jump, just click the "Read More" link below!

Zoya Matte Velvet Collection

Nail Mail Alert!

I was waiting on pins and needles for these highly coveted beauties!  I ordered the entire (oops....) Zoya Matte Velvet collection and added Zoya Dahlia to my cart to get the three free polishes gift!

Zoya Matte Velvet Collection and others
 Above you can see L-R: Zoya Loredena, Zoya Veruschka, Zoya Harlow (swoon!), Zoya Posh, Zoya Dahlia, Zoya Caprice, Zoya Kierra, and Zoya Anthea.  Zoya Dovima and Savita are not pictured but were also a part of this order.

Is it just me, or does Caprice look exactly like Zoya Dawn...??  I'll edit and post a comparison pic.  But *happy dance* that I received no dupes!  (well, not really, if we are going by

Soooo... this order came with Posh for free and Zoya's Matte Velvet red lipstick, which I of course had to try out.  Brace yourselves, Dancer is coming.  Errrr... umm... not.  like.  that.

Zoya Matte Velvet red lipstick
I'm not quite sold on such a bold red on my lips.  I mean, I don't even wear lipstick.  This was, however, quite pleasant on the lips.  Not invasive (if a lipstick can be invasive... in my opinion, they usually are, lol) at all.

Skeptical Dancer is skeptical about this red on me
I'm still skeptical.  Lol
