Halloween 2014: Glitter Gradient Spooky Eyes

My all time favorite Halloween nail art design is the simple spooky eyes on black polish. It’s so easy, and effective. I did this manicure last year as well, click here for that post! This year I changed it up a little and added a glitter gradient to some of the nails, and I love it even more.

glittereyesThis is super easy to do, and was probably the fastest I’ve ever done a nail art! The longest part is blending the glitter on the tips. If you don’t have dotting tools for the eyes you can use the back of a makeup brush, or a bobby pin.

Halloween 2014: Succubus

Succubuscollage120141015_112254So I’ve had these horns for a year now and finally got around to doing this look. Hubs made them for me out of foil, hot glue and paint. If you make horns, skip the hot glue and just paint the foil and be gentle with them. Mine are extremely heavy and spirit gum almost wont keep them on.

This is not exactly whats on my face chart for this look, but I’ll include a picture of it incase anyone wants to go more demon and less sultry. I’m very into minimal work for Halloween since my time is spent preparing a child for his mad dash for candy.

Products Used:
MAC Face and Body:N2
Anastasia Dipbrow: Chocolate
Urban Decay: Naked 1, & Smoked
e.l.f Liquid Eyeliner
e.l.f Dramatic Lash Kit (cut in half)

BH Cosmetics 120 (gray used to contour)
Bobbi Brown: Old Hollywood Red
NYX: Plumping Lipgloss
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil: Black Bean

A succubus is a female demon or supernatural entity in folklore (traced back to medieval legend) that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. The male counterpart is the incubus.

Demon, or very strange-looking cow woman? Comment below and tell me your thoughts!

Halloween 2014: Spun Sugar Mummy Manicure

HAPPY FRIDAY!!
I was going to save this for next week, but I can’t…I’m too in love with this to not post right away.

I looked through so many pictures of this kind of nail art, trying to figure out which method I wanted to use to get the mummy effect. I was going to use a fan brush, then a regular brush and draw them on. Then I remembered the spun sugar nail art that went around a while back, I never got around to trying it out….until now!

Halloween 2014: Rick Baker Bride of Frankenstein

I’m going to be 8 months pregnant for Halloween so I wanted to have something easy to do, that I could either go all out with, or tone down depending on the effort I want to put out. Thankfully last year everyone on the planet learned how to do easy and pretty realistic stitches when the Rick Baker MAC collection came out.

Halloween 2014: Autumn Spice Candy Corn Manicure

Okay first things first, can someone please explain to me where the hell September went?!?! I don’t say that very often, as usually my months drag by, but I swear I turned around and it was October.

Anyway, Happy October!!! YAY!! My favorite month, and my favorite time of the year. I wanted to do something clearly Halloween related, but that could be worn early in the month. I personally think about Halloween numerous times through the year, however I know there are people who don’t love this holiday as much as some of us do.
