Getting started with some SPAM!

So it's been a few days since my last post. I'm TRYING to post at least once a week, but I forgot last week. So there might be 2 posts this week to make up for it :) And for those who don't know, spam is an inundation of something, like spam email. But this is nail polish pictures.

Here is a collection of some of my Halloween mani's that I did, and some other random pictures. Enjoy! (Wait...do 4 pictures count as spam? Maybe not.)

So I decided that this one is going to be my heading picture. Why not!? Paramedics and blood go together like peanut butter and jelly! I hope this doesn't gross anyone out or turn any new followers away - let me know your thoughts on this picture as the heading pic! I used Essie No Prenup as the base color and then added OPI Color So Hot It Berns for the blood drips. I painted a strip of the red across first and then used a dotting tool with some more polish on it to drag polish down to create the drips.

This next one was kind of a fail. I let this dry for almost 2 hours before putting on topcoat and it STILL streaked :( I used Circus by Andrea's Choice - Reverso for the base and just a basic black striping polish for the faces.

Ok enough of Halloween - it's November now! This one is Zoya Yara from last year's fall collection. I don't think I've worn this one since last fall either! Its a gorgeous muted green with hidden gold shimmer. I think this is the only polish that gives me "lobster hands" which is why I don't wear it much.

And last but not least one of my favorites I've done in awhile. This is a reverse gradient using Essie Demure Vixen and Sonoma Nail Art Pinot Envy. SNA is from my area and she is one of my FAVORITE indie polish makers. If you ever get a chance to try her polishes, do it! If you also live in Sonoma County you can find them at the Tallulah Boutique in Healdsburg (where I get mine - they always have some in stock when her Etsy shop is sold out!) Pinot Envy is a multi-colored glitter polish with small orange/bronze glitter and larger sized purple glitters in a clear base. This is like the PERFECT autumn/harvest polish!

This is going to be an exciting polish filled week - I've got some nail mail coming, and I'm going to Ikea to pick up a home for all my polishes! I will do a post on polish storage soon - right now its a mess! Enjoy your week everyone!
