In honor of breast cancer awareness month

It's breast cancer awareness month and I wanted to show my support.

I have a tutorial on the gradient in my previous post (halloween nails tutorial). The only difference is I used white as a base coat for this gradient.

The pink is Zoya's "Shelby"

White is OPI's "Alpine Snow" The thumb was done using bundle monster stamp BM321 which you can purchase at bundlemonster.com or amazon.com

Rocky Horror Picture Show

I LOVE halloween so I'll be doing halloween nails every other day or so.

These are inspired by the rocky horror picture show, one of my all time favorite movies.

Just by looking at the picture again I'm already singing time warp.

The matte effect was done using Essie's "Matte About You"
The thumb was done using a Konad stamping plate. The lips were really hard, I used a nail art brush for those and a tutorial for bloody nails is coming soon ;)
