CrowsToes Huginn & Muninn

*purchased by me*


Hey there! Today I have for you CrowsToes Huginn & Muninn.  I wanted this polish forever and was so happy when it became available at Color4Nails


I decided to do a full blog post because of how different this looks under different lighting. All pictures are taken indoors.  


Huginn & Muninn is a strong purple to green multichrome shimmer in a dark blue base.  This is two coats with topcoat. 


I really love the color shift in this polish especially when you can see both the purple and green. 

Please check out CrowsToes and Color4Nails Facebook pages.  You can purchase this polish HERE.

The Nail Challenge Collaborative - October 2015: Funky French

*purchased by me*


Hey there! Today I have my fourth post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative October's Funky French theme. Once again I decided to do a Halloween theme. 


I have always wanted to do googly eye nail art and thought this would be the perfect time to try it out.  It totally makes me think of Halloween, and eyes peaking out from the dark! 


I used Blackout and Whiteout from Rica plus dotting tools to create this fun Halloween look.  It's simple and easy to do, but I love it! 

 
I hope that you liked all of my Funky French posts this month. I'm kind of sad I finished early so check back as I might do a few more just for fun! 

Which was your favorite of my Halloween Funky French manicures?  Will you try any of these looks?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative - October 2015: Funky French

*purchased by me*


Hey there! Today I have my third post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative October Funky French theme! I'm sticking with Halloween nail art for this.  


I started with a base of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Happy Hour at the Blue Parrot which is a gorgeous orange jelly with copper shimmers. It's a great fall color! 


I knew I wanted to do bats for one of my looks so I decided to stamp them with Rica Blackout and MoYou London Festive 15 plate.  


I'm not sure if everyone would consider this a French manicure, but that's the best thing about this month's theme!  It's all up to our own interpretation.  

What do you think of this look? Have you done any Halloween nail art yet?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative - October 2015: Funky French

*purchased by me*


Hey there! Today I have my second Funky French post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative.  I'm sticking with Halloween themed nail art for this one! 


I was inspired by Frankenstein for this look.  I started with a base of one coat of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Fare The Wind. I love this purple holo.  If I was wearing it alone I would do two coats, but one worked for the look I wanted to achieve.  


I used Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Siren Channels the 80s for the tips.  Then I used a Color Club Art Club black striping polish to create Frankenstein's stitches.  


I think this is a fun and easy look for Halloween, and it's definitely a Funky French mani! 

What do you think of this look? Would you wear this for Halloween?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative - October 2015: Funky French

*purchased by me*


Hey there! Today I have my first post for October's The Nail Challenge Collaborative Funky French theme. We have a lot of leeway with this one as we can interrupt it however we'd like! 


I knew I wanted to do something that was a Halloween look so I started with three coats of Rica The Great Pumpkin on all of my nails.  I love this color and you can see my original post and review HERE.  


Once The Great Pumpkin was dry I applied single chevron Nail Vinyls and painted over them with Rica Blackout.  I thought that worked perfectly for my Halloween theme.  I was originally just going to do black tips over the Orange, but thought this was actually funkier! 
 

I'm so happy with how this turned out.  It's definitely a funky French mani, and it's something I've never done before.  I also think it's perfect for Halloween! 
 
What do you think of this look? Is it funky enough for you?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative- September 2015: Pets

*purchased by me*


Hey there! Today I have my fourth and final post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative September Pets theme.  I went with cats for this one. 


I started with a base of Pahlish Draw Me a Sheep which is a gorgeous white creme with soft violet-blue shimmer and platinum flakes. I really love this polish and how it's not just a typical white creme.  


Then I stamped on the cats using Rica Blackout and MoYou London Festive 15 plate.  I decided to do the cats in black to do my first Halloween post of the year as well!  


Here's a macro shot so you can see the background polish and cats up close. I'm very happy with how this turned out.  

What do you think of my final look? What pet posts would you like to do?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative - September 2015: Pets

*purchased by me*


Hey there! Today I have my third post for September's The Nail Challenge Collaborative Pets theme.  I do realize it's October, and I was totally on track, but work has been very hectic so this was my first chance to get caught up.  


One of the pets I had was a dog.  Growing up we had Misty who was a mix of Golden Retriever and white German Shepherd. She was beautiful!  This doesn't look like her, but I did want to do a dog mani in her honor. 


I used Zoya Pasha and Jacqueline as well as Rica Blackout to create this look.  For the most part I did the dog freehand, but I used dotting tools for the paw prints.  Overall I'm really happy with how this turned out!  

Did you have a dog growing up? What was his/her name?
