Happy October!! Kicking the Month Off in a Bettina and Dollish Polish Halloween Watermarble

(**Press Samples**)
Good afternoon loves and happy October!! 

  I am just in awe that it is already October! So I have decided to kick off the month in a fun Halloween themed mani. I wanted to step out of the "spooky" norm and do something colorful, that still felt "Halloween" to me. What better way to do this than by doing a candy-looking watermarble? Of course I turned to my trusty Bettina shades for the marble. I actually had a lot of fun working on these because I intentionally wanted the patterns to be random on each nail.

 To really bring it to "Halloween speed" I layered Dollish Polish Somethings up With Jack from last year's Halloween collection. Which, BTW, will be making a short comeback this year for Two weeks on October 6th. I also accented my middle nail with a little Sugar skull water decal from O.P.I's Halloween set from last year. 
  I am so madly in love with the combination of colors and how the glitter sets everything off. The skully makes it fun and cute :D. I really think the addition of the glitter really made this mani :D. I just loved the "This is Halloween" collection so much, I had to find a way to work one of the shades into this look. 

 And of course, I have to show you guys the marble, which I am still madly in love with. So much so, that I didn't even do my signature coat of INM Northern Lights sparkles. I really wanted them to look like candies. For the marble I started with a base of Cult Nails Tempest. For the marble portion I used all Bettina shades; the green is Hopeful, the Orange shade is Epic and the Yellow is Art Deco Yellow. As usual these polishes were a dream to marble with and I could not be happier with the end result ;). I used a top coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish my whole look.

 Happy October!! I hope it's not too early to start with the Halloween looks heehee!! Halloween looks are just so fun to work on. I hope I can get a few more done before we have to buckle down for our cross country move. 

 I hope you guys enjoyed this look. Thanks for stopping by my painted beauties!

  4. I am just dying that I can't buy Bettina polish online or anywhere that is accessible to me since I live in Oregon.
