Candy Corn and Pumpkins

Hi Ladies!

Today I'm popping in with a quick Fall/Halloween mani that I did for my mother-in-law. Halloween is next week....have you chosen your costume yet? How about your festive manicure?

My mother-in-law wanted some pumpkins and I added some candy corn accents to make them more festive. Seems to have done the trick.

Fall Nail Art

I started with two coats of Julep Parker on all nails except for the ring finger. This bright orange creme is the base color for her nails. For the pumpkins, I used some Migi fine tip Nail Art Pens to draw the outline of the pumpkin and the green vines. I used Sinful Colors Courtney Orange to fill in the pumpkin, and Zoya Cheryl for the brown stem.

For the candy corns accents I started with two coats of Milani White On The Spot (WOTS), then used WOTS along with an Orange and Yellow polish in the Nail Art Pens for the gradient. I used a simple make-up sponge and painted directly on it. Use the sponge to dab the colors on the nail until you've gotten the desired look.

Halloween Mani

So what do you think about this mani? Something you would wear for a holiday type look prior to Halloween?

Thanks for stopping by!

Rainbow Honey The Final Battle

Rainbow Honey has shared a few polishes from their most recent Collection, The Final Battle. The Final Battle consists of 15 new shades inspired by Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII.

Available in 3 Parts, there is a wide variety of shades that are sure to please! Glitter toppers, shimmers, sparkles and holographics are all over the place.

Rainbow Honey sent me Sapphire Weapon, Lifestream and Hellfire. Each comes from one of the 3 Parts.

Rainbow Honey The Final Battle


Lifestream comes from Part I - The Battle. It's a pale green and white glitter topper with lots of shimmer and bar glitter in a clear base. There are hints of blue and purple in the shimmer that really pops when layered over black. This is 2 coats of OPI Black Onyx with one coat of Lifestream. The glitter laid flat and the even coverage was quite impressive. I think this may have been my favorite. :)

From Part II - The Summons, I received Hellfire which has a holographic flash full of red and gold squares, bars and golden stars in a clear base. This is one coat of Hellfire over OPI Black Onyx. Hellfire has a lot going on! This glitter was on the thick side and didn't provide even coverage. There was also a lot of bar glitter that did pile up a bit when I wasn't very careful with application. However, I did find the color combination to be very nice.

From Part III - The Weapons, I have Sapphire Weapon, a deep navy blue with green and gold shimmer that was quite present when in the sun! Sapphire Weapon deepened in color when indoors, but almost had a brightness outside in the sun. The shimmer was gorgeous and made this quite a unique polish.
