Viva vacation

My aunt is going on a secret vacation for her birthday, so I did her nails as a present. She wanted something bright and kinda beachy. She had to pick someone up from the airport, so I didn't do serious designs on every nail because it would've taken too long. I like the sunsets I did, I wasn't sure how to do them, but I think they turned out pretty nice. I also gave her a pedi with pink and blue that turned out really cute. I hope she has fun on her trip! :)

Sugar Skulls

Experimenting with halloweenish stuff once again.. I love sugar skulls. I have one sitting on my nightstand right now. They're just so pretty and fun looking. And my mom really loves them too, so I decided to give them a shot. I'm not entirely happy with them, but I needed the practice since I've been slacking lately. I need new brushes! Argh. Oh, they also glow in the dark, but I couldn't get a picture, sadly.

Sally Hansen, White On
Essie, Haute As Hello

So long summer

I couldn't resist and had to use my new polish. I wanted something bright and cheery since it's been cold and gray here this week. I used Essie's Haute As Hello as the base and I looooooooooove it! It's such a gorgeous cheery color. As with all Essie pastel's I have, it needed 3 coats, but application wasn't as bad as usual. I used Essie's Turquoise & Caicos, and Mint Candy Apple for the accents, plus some yellow acrylic paint. Really simple for me, I know. I just don't have the energy for complicated nails all the time!

Like my rings? I got the big butterfly at a convention in Atlanta, at a booth with lots of weird rings. I loved how over the top it was. The one on my thumb belonged to my grandmother. It's set with a real moonstone. It has a matching bracelet but I never wear it, sadly. Anyway, enjoy!

Also.. if anyone can get me a bottle of Milani's Dress Maker, I'll trade/pay you for it. It's like a fucking unicorn around here.
