Halloween On Stranger Tides

Boo lovelies.

Halloween nails

Only a day left until Halloween! Can someone please tell me where October went? How did it sneak past me? Enlighten me.

Am I the only one lost and stumbling through the temporal plain?
Spooky manicure
By the way, I really enjoyed being part of Brijit’s evil plan to surprise Jem on her bday – I was so happy to see her happy and all the bloggers chiming in!

I felt very unsure about posting a photo of the actual me, not only my phalanges, but I’m kind of glad I did – I really like it when nail bloggers post their faces from time to time, it makes me feel more of a connection to the blogger behind the nails, you know?
And thank you SO MUCH : ) for your kind comments, you really have no idea how I needed something positive last week.
Scary nail art
This week I was genuinely wearing detox nails. After having them screaming pink for 7 days, first colour was Essie Blanc, straight out of the bottle, detoxifying. After that I wanted black. Pink makes me go monochrome, apparently.
Hallowen costume
These are my spooky Halloween nails, which I’m throwing at your eyeballs with a lot of nail porn – Stranger Tides was being strange and stubborn and wouldn’t show green enough in the photos – the quality which I really enjoyed when wearing this mani. IRL, it’s such an ugly, greenish murky colour, bordering on mouldy and I had to have it for a Hallowen nail art.
Nail stamping
As a juxtaposition to that I chose the most different colour I could think of, OPI The It Color – it’s bright, warm and slightly mustardy, but in a clean, non-murky kind of way. I thought clashing them would up the creepy factor – I just adore these faces. (they always make people think of strange, spooky things. I, myself, despite being a Whovian, am partial to seeing Munch in them. SCREAM.)
OPI the IT Color
What are your plans for Halloween? Samhein? Día de Los Muertos?
Do let me know : ), I have an odd fascination with hearing these, probably because I never celebrated it myself.

Munch scream

  1. I love the yellow with the greenish Scream nails (I see Munch’s Scream too). My neice started selling Jamberry Nails, have you heard of them? I am terrible with my nails so haven’t bought any of them but they sure look nice. I can enjoy nail porn even if I don’t do my nails, don’t judge ;p It’s always nice to see your posts Cat, I’m going to spend Halloween at home, as far as I know. We don’t get any trick-or-treaters here in my building but have stocked up on Snickers bars just in case hee hee (and I will not feel guilty eating them, I need to gain weight!)

    • Haven’t heard of Jamberry, no? They do look nice now that I googled them : ) They’re wraps and I haven’t actually used any, ever, but the designs are pretty to ogle ; )))
      And I wouldn’t think to judge, I’m the same with makeup – I love seeing it, elaborate and adventurous on other people, but only that. On other people. : )

      Hope you had a Snickers FEAST : D (I love Snickers bars… : ))

  2. So cool manicure! And it’s great you showed yourself:) I think I forgot to comment on that post:D But it really feels like I know you better now!

  3. This is colour perfection + really beautifully done.
    Also I’ve missed the portrait you’ve posted, mostly because I’m not into pink and had no idea who Jem was :D
    but went there now, and looked; you’re just as pretty as you’re fun (hint: very).

    P.S. Stumbling too :( Where did September go? Where is half of October? Meh.

I'm Cat - don't be a stranger!
