The Nail Challenge Collaborative: Stripes - Monster Line Dance

Final day of The Nail Challenge Collaborative's theme of stripes, and I give you a monster line dance! :) Look at those monsters (MoYou Sci-Fi 01) dancing up a storm on their colorful dance floor!

I used BarryM Espresso as my base, two coats. This is an amazing black matte! I stamped using BarryM: Waikiki (index monster), Miami (middle monster), Cancun (ring monster), and Copa Cabana (pinkie monster). The french tip (or my stripe for this challenge, see, see what I did there?) Are those same colors but one to their right.

So that means I have to show you my thumb! Stamped using BarryM Malibu with a stripe of Copa Cabana. He's like an owl/duck monster!

The BarryM Mattes are amazing to stamp with! Their formulas are fantabulous!

Oh and what are the monsters line dancing to?

Monster Mash, of course! :) Happy Halloween! Please be safe!

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Stripes - Owl Stripes

Day 3 of The Nail Challenge Collaborative's theme of stripes and combining it with the Digit-al Dozen's Spooky Days. 

Not sure exactly what I was going for here! Hahahaha! But look! It's got stripes and an owl....what could go wrong? Oh, how about stamping stripes on all the other nails. Nu-uh, nope. So I had to free-hand the other stripes.

I used BarryM Mango as my base. I stamped on my ring finger using BarryM Plum and MoYou Pro 04. On my other nails I used BarryM Plum to create stripes (yep, that is the same color used to stamp!) and Konad Black with MoYou Pro 04 for the scroll-work. Topped it off with Poshe Top Coat.

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Stripes - Halloween Camo?

This is my day 2 of The Nail Challenge Collaborative presents Stripes! And today I bring you Halloween camo? This is just a few Halloween colors, splodged on, and stamped over with stripes. :)

I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls as my base (though you can't see it). I then splodged on BarryM: Plum, Mango, and Key Lime. I stamped using Konad White and Cheeky CH10. The white was too bright so I used Essence We Will Rock You Smokey Finish Top Coat. I then used Essie Matte About You as you can see in the first photo.

Meh. That's what I feel about this. Just meh. It is what it is. :)

The Digit-al Dozen Does Spooky Days: Aged Wallpaper

Today's spooky post is wallpaper that has been left to rot and decay in the houses of the not so rich and famous.

Here we have our wallpaper so fresh and new! BarryM Mustard (love this color!) for the base stamped with BarryM Chai (yes! a grey that actually looks grey when stamped! Gonna need some back ups!) using MoYou Fashionista 08.

The wallpaper is now showing signs of abandonment. It's gotten dusty thanks to OPI My Pointe Exactly and Essie Matte About You. It's even starting to peel in some places thanks to acetone and a brush. It's starting to show the wall color under it, BarryM Chai.

And finally the wallpaper has been taken over by a little brown spider created from BarryM Mocha and Wet n Wild Black Creme. His webs (my first attempt at the spun sugar technique) is also the lovely BarryM Chai.

I hope you liked our visit today to derelict walls of the not so rich and famous!

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Stripes - This is Halloween!

Welcome to another Nail Challenge Collaborative theme! This month it is stripes! I've decided to try and pair it with The Digit-al Dozen's Spooky Days!

Today I went for simple and easy and not spooky at all! How could Jack Skeleton be scary? Nope, not at all. I used Barry M Plum as a base as well as OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I stamped using Konad White and Cheeky CH10 (stripes). I used my cleanup brush with some acetone on it to sort of distress the white lines. Didn't want them too clean looking! I used a Jack decal I got from RLR Creations. Her decals are my favorite! I sealed everything with HK Girl Top Coat.
