Hocus Pocus "BOOK" Nail art

HOCUS POCUS is my favorite Halloween movie, I know I'm not the only one out there that thinks it's a must watch every year, it's already queued to play on my TIVO right now.


I found this really incredible nail design done by Lexi Martone based off the the character "Book" in the movie, who's more like the Sanderson Sisters pet than just their spell book. For her design she does an amazing 3D version using acrylic sculpt material, here's her nails:

Well, I have never done anything 3D & didn't really have time to experiment this time around, but I did the very best 2D version I could come up with...ENJOY:

A few Fall Designs for 2013

I've done a few nail art designs for Fall this month so far, I didn't LOVE any of them enough to keep them on for very long, but figured I'd go ahead & post them anyways.

31 Day Challenge Round Up:

So I completed my very first 31 Day Challenge, it was a lot of fun & not half as scary as I've been thinking it would be. I'm happy I finally decided to try it out & really enjoyed pushing my creative limits by trying some techniques I had never tried before. Some didn't turn out how I wanted them to, but oh well, I guess everything can't be perfect all the time, I will just have to practice some more!

Here they all are with links to the original posts. 

If I had to pick I'd say my fav's of the bunch were Flowers, Half Moon, Secret Garden (book), Crosses (Pattern) & the No water marble (tutorial). I'd love to hear which were your favorite in the bunch!

31DC2013 Day 31: Honor Nails You Love!

Oh my goodness, it's the last day of the 31 day nail challenge, WHOHOO!!! I can't believe I made it, didn't miss a day & really challenged the heck out of my right brain cells.

Today we honor nails that we love. It's a little bit cryptic, so I took it to mean literally a lovely lady's nails that I love. There is one blog that I follow, it's in french, called Pshiiit. I don't know her real name, but this girl has the most beautiful hands & nails I've ever seen & I would like to honer her by using one of her nail art designs as my inspiration. I have huge nail envy, being that I have small nails & short fingers, plus my hands are a little pudgy so it doesn't look half as elegant as I would like. I have resigned that this design won't ever look as pretty as hers, I can only hope it does her justice & that she might be flattered.

I did a little bit of a twist though & used some color changing polishes. So you will see in the indoor pictures it's silver with pink just like hers, but outdoors they're burgundy, it was really cool seeing the color change!
