Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Don't you just just love Halloween? I love any holiday that brings light in dark times and I love vampires and creepy lore stuff so Halloween is a double win for me!

The design for my Halloween mani had been in my mind for some weeks and I actually practised one two weeks ago. However, as more and more Halloween mani's kept appearing on the webz, I changed some nails. Some designs on Tumblr were just too darn cute to ignore!

My mani is now a combination of own ideas and copied ideas. I know, blood drips, pumpkins and black cats are not exactly original but I did come up with the ideas myself =)

Creepy stuff!

Sorry about not uploading the high res pic, I did a sloppy clean up job. You can click to enlarge, however.

You can find the tutorial for the vampire by JauntyJuli here, for the teeth by BeautyChocolat here. Yes, I realise I do these things upside-down, that's just how I prefer them =) Also, I have seen similar designs online. I am truly sorry if someone else is the original artist, but I used the above tutorials so those are my sources. I will link if you have reason to believe this was your design.

Also, I have been comparing Essence Better Than Gel top coat and Essence Gel Look top coat, and I think they are pretty much the same! Which is good news for me =D

Fun off-topic fact: we were having dinner with my Geeks family, and his sister told me how her son had told a friend that I had 100 polishes, but I threw out a blue one he liked so now I only had 99 left. My Geek laughed and said it would be best if we didn't tell the kid I have since bought new polishes ;-)
