I've been gone for forever, and for this I am very sorry.
I wont waste your time with excuses though.
Hallowe'en is my favourite holiday!
I had so many nail ideas that I wanted to try out, I couldn't choose!
So I did them all!!! YAY.
Frankenstein's monster would be more visible if I had used a lighter green...
The vampire teeth were the most difficult, and the ghost was obviously the easiest :)
I hope someone recognizes the famous movie scene on my thumb nail...!
I have to make this quick
I'm leaving for Europe tomorrow! London --> Edinburgh --> Prague. Have any of you been there? (Do any of you live there?) Is there a certain food I should try or a cute little shop I should visit? TELL ME!
Here is the SECRET RECIPE I promised:
Clear nail polish (crappy top coat you never use perhaps?)
Eyeshadow (something you want to get rid of...)
A piece of paper
(This is all my and my sister's eyeshadow put together.
Very sad, I know)
Got everything? LET'S START
1. First pick an eyeshadow you think will look good as a nail polish (I used the greenish one in the bottom right corner because it was all broken and stuff...)
2. Get chunks of it onto your paper and chop it into as fine a powder as you can get
3. Make a funnel with a piece of paper and some tape and use this to get the powder into your nailpolish OR just pour the powder in without a funnel
4. Shake really hard
5. Adjust the amount of eyeshadow until you get the colour you want (add different colours too!)
6. You can add anything you want to it really: sparkles, ...umm... perfume... i don't know... GET CREATIVE!
Sorry guys, I've been sick with strep throat, and it was not fun. I'm mostly better though, except when someone makes me laugh, because I end up just coughing and wheezing, which for some reason I find to be ridiculously funny. So you see my predicament :p
ON TO THE NAILS!
Do you know what's super-wonderful-awesome-tastic about this manicure? Why, perhaps the fact that that beautiful teal base colour you see was created by yours truly! >.< yup, my first ever franken! But of course, it's not just any old franken. I'm going to show you what I used to make it in my next post........ mwahaha leaving you guys on the edge of your seats right? ;) sure.
Oh! and I forgot to tell you! At the Canada Games my team came 8th out of 12! Better than that LAST place we got at Nationals for sure!
WAIT! I have a question: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Sorry I've been away for so long! I got back from Halifax last week and have been busy catching up with school work and stuff...
I found some lace while I was cleaning my room, cut out pieces to fit on my nails, and stuck them there with a LOT of top coat.
I like the edgy-ness of this mani, and the emo-ness of is kind of a reflection of how I'm feeling right now; really not good and slightly depressed :( BUT looking at my nails actually puts me in a slightly better mood! Also, since lace doesn't chip :) this mani should last for at least a week.
What's that my left hand is resting on? Why it's good ol' TI-83+ (my scientific calculator).
MATH, I blame you for how horrid I feel right now.
It's depressing when someone who is used to being an "A" student, gets a "C" in a class she actually works REALLY hard in. I feel like a failure.
So how are YOUR lives right now?
Here is a song for you all \/
the video is a little... off... but the song is absolutely amazing. I love it so much <3
