Happy Halloween and Spooky Nail Art!

Hi all y'all!  First let me apologise, I have rather neglected my blog and all of you.  It wasn't intentional, but I did have quite a lot of stuff to deal with and I won't bore you with the details apart from to say I have had a bit of a stressy bad time and just didn't get chance to blog.  I am sorry, and thank you for your patience, but I am back now (YAY!)

Right, now without further ado, it is halloween!  I love this time of year, first halloween, then bonfire night, and then not long until Christmas.  I miss the summer sunshine, but all seasons have their beauty and Autumn/Winter has lots going on.  Also my dogs hate the warm weather with a vengeance so it is good to see them happy too.

I decided, in the spirit of Halloween, I had to do a spooky manicure.  I used a black polish underneath my pinky, middle and pointer fingers, and a white base under my ring finger and thumb.  I then added Wet n Wild Behind Closed Doors on the pinky and middle fingers, and a coat of China Glaze Frosty on the white ones.

Once this was dry I got some white acrylic paint and painted a white circle on my index finger, and then I used just plain black polish and a fine brush to fill in the details.  I really like this one, and it does look better in reality than it does on the pics, as macro mode shows where the black has streaked when I put a top coat on but it really doesn't show looking at it with the naked eye.  I got my inspiration (ahem, okay I copied!) the Jack Skellington faces from Nails by Asami, hers look so much nicer than mine but I am happy with my results too.  I also got a LOT of compliments and comments when I was out and about today so thats always a good indicator that I have done okay!

I hope you like my manicure, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Fat Fingers!

You are ROCKING these! I love it! That red glitter over the black on your middle and pinky finger is magical. Thanks so much for the mention, I really do appreciate it. I feel you on the stressy bit; I'm in the same place but can't wait to get back to blogging either! Much love. :-)

Keep the ball beneath knee level if conceivable. This will make your adversary battle to take the ball from you. This takes some stooping and bowing, yet simply move rapidly down the court as you upset the restriction.

To deal with your cowhide ball, just use it in an indoor exercise center. On the off chance that you go outdoors, the concrete and black-top will destroy that calfskin. Rather, purchase an elastic indoor/open air ball to take to the concrete court. They are less expensive and bob similarly also outside.
