Happy Halloween!

I've been so busy recently but I managed to fit in some time for a Halloween manicure! Last night, I carved my first pumpkin and I wasn't planning anything special tonight but a few friends and I have decided to go out. I have a red cape and some devil horns and that's about as far as my dress up skills stretch!

I also have some news about my lighting. Well, not news so much but here's the story... my desk lamp which is the one I use for photographing my nails too has been on it's death bed for a while and finally popped it's clogs a few days ago. Finding a new lamp became priority number one and my Mum recommended I find out what Argos are selling. Turns out that lamp was in fact from Argos and they still sell it. Oh, and it's a bargain! It's £19.99 and comes in Black and Silver
I never knew the source of my magical lamp before because I just found it lying around in the house. When I used to get questions about it, all I could say was it's a fluorescent desk lamp but now you know the gory details!



My thumb is A-England Lancelot as a base and the cobweb from Bundle Monster plate BM13 with Barry M Silver Foil.
The blood drips were created with OPI Samoan Sand as a base colour and Cult Nails Quench applied with a nail art brush to create the drips.
The haunted house and pumpkin are from Bundle Monster plate BM305 and stamped using W7 Black. The orange is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed and the yellow is NYC Lexington Yellow*.

  11. Too funny about the lamp because my OTT lamp just burned out the the other night but I had to take pics so I just did it with my regular bedside lamp that has the warm lighbulb in it and I figured that the pics would be terrible. Turns out that after correcting the white balance after made my pics turn out even better! :)

  16. I haven't commented on your blog before, but I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy reading your posts! I think I started following you on BlogLovin' in August, and I love the way you photograph your posts. I have decided that you've got to be one of my favourites along with Chalkboard Nails and Pshiiit, and it's even better that you're from the UK in my opinion :)
