Del Sol Trick or Treat: Happy Halloween!!

Hi loves!!

 Quick Second post for today! I'm easily amused and this polish had my attention before I even knew that it had the coolest color shift ever! Yes, this is the exact same polish! Soo freaking cool!

Trick or Treat... You so cool!!! This polish is made up of Micro Holographic Glitter, Orange Glitter and Silver glitter in a clear base that changes to an inky jelly Black when in Sunlight. This is so freaking cool looking! For the pics here I used Three coats of Trick or Treat and it was fully opaque. This applies really nicely and dries quickly too. I want to layer this over everything!!

Here is a close up of what it looks like in the Sun.

And the blurry shot to show the cool sparkle!
I hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!!

31 Day Challenge! Day 22- Inspired by a Song

Happy Halloween!!

  I hope every had a safe and fun Halloween weekend... How lame is it that it's on a Monday... Anywho, today the list calls for nails inspired by a song. Funny story as to how I came about my choice in song. I couldn't even begin to figure out which song I wanted to base this mani off of.... This past Saturday I went to this Marching Band thing because my brother plays for his High School band... This song of part of their very awesome program...
Get it? Get it?!! Hahaha It's "What's This?" from Nightmare Before Christmas!! This mani was beyond frustrating to work on.... IDK why but it took me forever and I had to re-do several nails... Several times. The hardest was Jack Skellington because I can't really freehand. I won't list all the stuff I used because this is pretty much left open for interpretation lol.

Just for shiggles!
I wonder what Sam and Rie picked! Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Song nails!

Now go get some candeh!!

31 Day Challenge! Day 21- Nails Inspired by a Color

Hi and happy Sunday!!

  Today's task was quite the vague one... Inspired by a color? What does that even mean lol? I guess anything I want it to mean, right? Instead of being inspired by a color, I was inspired by a color scheme. When I think of Pink, I usually also put White and Black together with it. IDK why but I LOVE Black, Pink and White together. I could probably work in that color scheme for the rest of my blogging days and I would be happy. So for today's challenge I went with my favorite color scheme Black, White and Pink in a fun Mod design.
 So I kept it pretty simple with the whole "circle within circle" thing. I really love simple yet eye- catching designs like this one. I started with a base of Jordana's Pink Bunny. Then with my largest Born Pretty Store dotting tool I added some Black dots using Bettina Onix. Using the smallest dotting tool in the set I then went back and dotted the center of the Black dots with China Glaze White on White. I also decided to spice it up a little bit my mattifying the look with two coats of Hard Candy's Matte-ly in Love.

I'm loving this look matte! Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Color inspired nails!

31 Day Challenge! Day 20- Watermarbled Nails

Hi loves!!

  Holy smokes! Day 20!!! I'm so not ready for Inspiration Week.. o.O.. But I was super eager to get working on my water marble for today's task. I went with a Halloween theme since LTHP has been lacking in the Holiday Spirit lol... I'm really happy with how these turned out for banging them out in 15 min.... Behold! lol
  I started with a base of Bettina Clouds and then marbled with the colors pictured below. I topped it all off with a coat of SV followed by my mandatory coat of INM Northern Lights. I just can't get enough of the hint of sparkle it adds.

Jacked up my index finger a little but I can live with it lol!
So that was fun! Now.. to go pick a color to be "inspired by..... lol" Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Watermarbled nails!
