Okay, here is version 2! I played around with it more this time. I'm more satisfied with it now, although I do think looking at them side by side it is hard for me to choose which I prefer. :)





Products Used:
  • Salon Perfect - Sugar Cube
  • Glossy red acrylic paint

And here is my pedicure!

I wasn't sure how well it would turn out but I loved how it looked!



Products Used:
  • Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - You Just Want to Mate?!
  • Pure Ice - Black Out
  • My Beauty Spot - Clear Coat
I'm putting together another post that has all 3 years of this compared, with a look to see how much progress I've made! I'll try to have that up tomorrow! :)

How do you keep track of your nail progress? 
Let me know!

Have a wonderful day!

The Nail Files // Murderess on the Loose

 Are you excited for Halloween yet?? I have been since the beginning of September and am not ready for it to end! I'm not doing as many Halloween nail arts this year, mostly because I'm planning a party and want to devote more time towards that as I still have so much to do. 

However, I have apparently deemed it a tradition to do a blood splatter nail art. haha This is my 3rd year in a row! While actually I keep redoing it as I'm never quite pleased, it doesn't seem like a bad tradition plus a good way to test my progress! 
 

I got very sick after doing my nails. I've recently developed a sensitivity to sugar, especially chocolates. So I hadn't gotten any in a while, and while I'm sure that would generally be wonderful in terms of health, my blood sugar level would disagree. It was about 5am so still too early for natural light photos, and I went to rest in the tub which washed off all the excess mess. So these indoor photos aren't the best, but still fun having the fully "bloody" look before they got cleaned up!


Okay, now for the cleaned up, natural lighting versions! 


Here is my other hand. I was having trouble doing the splatter with my left hand so I mostly did thumbprints on that one. I think with maybe one or two lines of splatter it would look really good. I almost prefer that side. Those prints turned out much better than my other hand. Need to blend the two hands together for the perfect crime scene mani. haha


The one thing that sucks about doing this is that it's unpredictable. That crap goes where it wants to go with no control on my part. And believe me, I try, but so far I haven't figured out the secret to getting perfect splatter. I already feel like redoing it. Hm...I think I might.

Have a spooktacular day!
