Happy Halloween!

Yay it's finally Halloween! (this is a BIG post, beware!) Last day for Halloween themed Mani's! I couldn't decide what to put on my I did a 5 different things!
On Friday I picked up a Sally's Mini Glow in the dark polish...I couldn't find any other ones :*(
But I found out that this little one, works great! I also found some other beauties, but I will save that for another post!

When I prepared for this, I wasn't really sure what I was going to do... I wanted to try Mummy's, Pumpkins, The blood dripping thing, and my stamps.....

I painted all my nails with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's White On. Seche Vited it, and went to dinner, came back with a plan, lol. I did all of the above...

What I used:
My thumb has bats and a church form the Bundle monster plate 224 and 13, using Wet N Wild black creme and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue It, With Sally's Mini GITD on top.
My index has OPI (my one and only OPI- that's sad :(  Black Shatter, the glow in the dark is under the Shatter.
My middle has a Pumpkin and old tree stamped on it, plate BM-224, with Wet N Wild Black Creme, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed. With the GITD on top.
My Ring is a mummy, using LA Colors Art Deco Striping polish in black, And then a white from a french kit by KISS, and then Big Apple Red Creme by NYC. I forgot to put the GITD under the stripes so I went back and dotted it between the lines and on his eyes.
On my pinkie is the Big Apple Red Creme by NYC, using a dotting tool and the brush from the bottle, with GITD over top.

And I love my toes right now, I have never really used a white as a color, only an accent, but this is really really really pretty! I used an old CQ white polish, with the silver/black pumpkin glitter from this post.

We, I mean Mr. LoveButt, carved pumpkins yesterday while the kids did a craft I picked at Micheal's, and what made me happy was that it didn't need glue, all the pieces had sticky backs, Yay!

Oldest did this one

Little Man did this one

Drama Queen did this one

Happy Halloween!!!! Be Safe tonight!!!!

Pumpkin Glitters!

I wanted these, solely for the bottles. I used this Orange Pumpkin alone for a mani. It was ok....Not something I would normally gravitate toward though. Orange isn't my color. It turned out ok, great for Halloween though! Tara from PaA went to Meijers, which we don't have down here in FL, to find them for me! Thanks Tara!

This is all of them that I bought from Tara. I had just purchased some other glitter from Revlon that was really similar to the other ones she picked up, so I decided not to get those. From left to right: Black/Silver, Red, Moon, Orange, and Silver/Black.

This I got from Nicole in PaA also. It is a really neat polish, looks best over a dark color, esp black!!!
Thanks Nicole!

Dont' forget about my 100 Follower Give-Away! It only has 4 days left!

Glittered Candy Corn!

Alright so I really wanted to use my pumpkin polishes I bought from Tara in PaA, but I couldn't decide which to

I did a base of Wet N Wild Black Creme and then...

On my pinky is WNW Behind Closed Doors
On my ring is a candy corn, White On- SH XW, Meet Me at Sunset- Essie, and Mellow Yellow- SH XW
On my middle in the Moon Pumpkin Glitter
On my index is the red Pumpkin Glitter
and finally on my thumb I have two of the glitters: the black/silver and the silver black.

This was a cute combo...
I'm sorry my fingers are dry! I lotioned right afterward! :(

Tonight I took all four kiddos to the older two's school for Spooky Story night. It was fun, kind of...they didn't last long, which is good for me, Because I'm not good with crowded public social things....They dressed up...even the little one had a costume on, lol....

Oldest is some black/dark guardian thing from Harry Potter-anyone know what the name of it is?
Drama Queen was a dancing cat, lol, but will be Superwoman for the real deal...
Little Man is Batman!
Handsome was a Ninja.

You know...I have some anxiety about posting their pictures on a public blog...I know some moms who don't, some who will occasionally with heads turned, so they aren't recognizable, and then some that say who cares.....I'm somewhere in the middle....I want to share them , but then again I don't feel like I its welcoming danger in my home, make sense? Anyone else like that?

Ok, so for tomm since my husband works, I bought some crafts for the kids to do for Halloween, some foam things....we'll see how that goes

And I found some bled though and stupidly I bought two different kinds, and added them both, I should have done one at a time to see which one if not both bled....oh well its still pretty, I just have to get the shaking ball things....and perhaps a thicker top coat, than the thin Wet n Wild clear I used....

Don't forget to enter my give-away!

Oh and the challenges and recipes will resume after Halloween!

Is there anything you guys want to request?

Nail mail and My Baby is ONE today!

Hey there all you beautiful people! Today is a special day, my little baby boy is ONE today! He is my fourth child, but it is still emotional when they turn one. Saturday is his party and I have alot to do the rest of this week, clean, make a cake, make the food for the party....

I searched and searched for the Wet N Wild On the Prowl collection, and came up empty handed, so I ordered them, two from Traci, from The Trace Face Philes, and one from Bee from Bee Polished. They were so kind, Traci went to like 17 to find as many as she could for all of us who craved these polishes, and Bee, well she is very sweet-she even sent some neat candy and filled her envelope with Halloween glitter! I shared the Pop Rocks with my kids, even the little one, and it was so cute to see their faces when the candy was making noise in their mouths.

I have a pumpkin flakie polish coming this week from Nicole, from PAA on FB (yay, so excited about this one, and then Tara from the same group is sending me a bunch more pumpkin polishes! Woohoo!

Thanks girls, I really do appreciate it a lot!!!!!

And here is a picture of my sweet baby boy, Hunter.

15 Week Challenge......Part Two, Week Seven (Halloween)

Hey guys! I have another Halloween based challenge for ya! This challenge was a glitter sandwich. I picked up a new polish over the weekend, Sinful Colors Cloud 9, its an Orange glass flecked/shimmer polish. Its like sparkly Orange Juice on my nails! It really is super pretty, and I don't care for Orange. I had bought Tangled in my Web, and two others, and was waiting for them to come in the mail and they did, yay! (nail mail post later on this week) So I put on a few layers of TMW from Wet N Wild's On the Prowl collection, and then topped it with one more coat of SC's Cloud 9. It is totally awesome, kind of looks like poppy seeds in Orange juice now, lol....the Orange also made some of the TIMW look Hunter Green, perfect for Halloween/Fall!

So here is my Glitter Sandwich! (totally picture spam, sorry)

Pretty awesome, right?
