Halloween and whatnot :)

So, Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. Christmas and it have become tied now. Bc I love how nice and cheerful everyone is around Christmas. But, I posted some of my breast cancer manicures here are some Halloween nails I've done the last week or two.

Did this polish Sunday night because all last week I watched the Friday the 13th movies on AMC...hence my accent finger ;)
I used basic white polish for the base. Then I did the paint splatter effect [see tutorial here ] - I'm not too good at the paint splatter..but oh well. To darken my accent nail to look like Jason's dirty mask I put OPI 'you dont know Jacques' on a plastic lid and added 2 drops of nail polish thinner to it. It makes it really then and I used a flarred out paintbrush to brush brown over the white to give it the dirty look. The black was done with a dotting tool. & I used a Sinful Colors red detail brush for the stripes. :) I'm please with how it turned out.

Now, on to the next manis :)
These 2 polishes are custom polishes I had made by my friend, Bree, of Mrs. P's Nail Potions. I had them made just for me. She can make you custom polishes too :) Or she may have enough supplies of to make you these are well :)

 This polish is 'terror nights' over Color Club 'worth the risque' :)
This polish is 'static' over China Glaze 'flying dragon' :)
You can purchase Bree's polishes in her store, here . Bree's polishes are awesome, you won't regret it!
These next manis are using the 'spun sugar' technique. You can see how to here :) That's the link I used.
 I just used Sally Hansen Xtreme wear for the black and white. Any kind of polish will work
Then I decided to add ornage polish on top of those! :)
My next mani started out as just a black and white 'ruffian' mani..
I used Sally Hansen Xtreme 'black out' & Essie 'orange, of course'
but thennnn...I turned it into pumpkins :)
I think it turned out pretty cute :))
Next are some I did while watching scary movies on AMC :)
These are just Wet N Wild and Sinful Colors, cheap polishes for the candy corn :)
Then I topped it with 'Terror Nights' from Mrs. P's Nail Potions (link posted above)
Next is a simple, non scary mani.
I used 2 coats of Essie 'orange, of course'..a coat of Cover Band 'sticks n stone's [which can be purchased here ] & then I topped it with a coat of OPI 'guy meets gal-veston.
 This is Nicole by OPI 'it's all about the glam' - a shimmer white make it opaque I had to use 4 coats, but it's gorgeous and well worth it. To see a really great swatch of it, you can click here :) for the accent nail I put 2 coats of Mrs. P's Nail Potions 'hella holo' [purchase this beauty here ] Hella Holo is definately one of my favorite glitters ever.
BUT THENNNN I wanted to Halloween this mani up...soo..
Added 'blood' in China Glaze 'ruby pumps' & topped my accent nail with the 'terror nights' glitter I have used in above post. How snazzy is this?? :) I just love this red glitter too.
