This is Halloween, Halloween

I like the holiday season. Ok, stop. I LOVE the holiday season. From changing leaves to comfort food, I just can’t get enough of that tingly crispy fall season.

Some people may argue that Halloween is not part of the “Holiday Season”, but I vehemently disagree. Halloween is the starting point of the holiday madness, and I am all about it! I relish the time where I can bust out the long and ridiculous falsies, eat candy until I am sick, and turn on Hocus Pocus for the billionth time. Don’t even get me started on the benefits and joys of finding a crazy. Halloween is the business.

Halloween is also one of my favorite times to play with Nail Art. This look was inspired by my love of plaid and one of my favorite light-hearted halloween favorites, The Nightmare Before Christmas! I decided to give my favorite guy, Jack a few minutes in the spotlight.

Check it out, and tell me your thoughts! Also, what is YOUR favorite holiday to try nail art?

Neon Geometric Nails

Hey ladies and gents! I have been missing summer in a major way lately. What I would give to throw on an airy hot pink dress and slip on some chunky wedges. Buuutt that is not exactly possible at the moment, because right now the Pacific Northwest is doing what it does best… RAINING! So it looks like I will just have to settle for some bright and crazy geometric nails to keep the blues at bay.

I had a hard time deciding on colors, so my hands are a bit different.

Right Hand Geometric

This is the hand I like the most. Surprisingly, it is my right hand! That is usually my “challenge hand”.

My iffy Left Hand Colors

My iffy Left Hand Colors

I liked the idea of my left hand, but was not too satisfied with my execution. But they are still are kinda cute.

Steps to achieve this look:

1) Paint nails white. TIP: Wait until white dries for about 20-30 minutes before applying nail tape and neon nail polishes. This ensures no smudging.

2) Apply Nail Tape where you would like your white lines to show

3) Paint inside the nail tape lines.

4) Remove nail tape. TIP: Remove the tape while neon nail polish is still wet, the drier/thicker it gets, the harder it is to get a nice clean line.

5) Finish with a top coat. I’m a Seche Vite snob myself!

Glitter Accent Nail:

-Use brush on nail glue to coat nail, then sprinkle on glitter of choice (I used loose glitter, but you could also use a few coats of glitter polish)
