EASY PUMPKIN NAILS!

Halloween is definitely my favorite holiday. It kicks off the holiday season and it's the month that it finally starts to cool down (even though it was 90 degrees, stop being crazy California). I love decorating pumpkins, I love the way pumpkins look, I love that you can get away with crazy outfits and hair and makeup. I love wearing purple lipstick and I can't wear it on any other day but Halloween. I love skulls, candy, and just everything Halloween.

SOO here are some easy pumpkin nails tutorial! And some pumpkins I decorated :)

The black rhinestones with the orange glitter are from this month's Winstonia Stores October Grab Bag! Make sure to grab yours for only $10 while supplies last! This month's bag brings these rhinestones, amazing 3D skulls, two sets of water decals, one skeleton and one mustache themed, and Halloween eyeliner stickers for your eyes. And two tweezers that have helped so much when I pick up rhinestones and 3D gems.

PRECISION NAIL LACQUER AND OPI'S MARIAH CAREY HOLIDAY COLLECTION

Okay the following polishes are some of my favorite this year (and the year is almost over).

If you haven't already seen Mariah Carey's 2013 Winter Holiday Collection for OPI go see it NOW at HB Beauty Bar. They have it available for purchase!

And if you haven't heard of Precision Nail Lacquer you need to grab a few to add to your nail polish collection. Precision Nail Lacquer is a 3 free nail polish and the color are beauuutiful.

Look #1 is Precision Nail Lacquer's "Pink With A Wink" and my thumb is OPI's "Ski Slope Sweetie" topped with OPI's "I Snow You Love Me" Glitter Top Coat which is so unique and beautiful. I used three coats of "Pink With A Wink" topped with Seche Vite. It's a little shimmery and easy to apply. I love this pink. A girl can never have too many pink polishes.

 Look #2 is a beautiful teal polish. It's called "McDreamy" from Precision Nail Lacquer. Yes, as in McDreamy for Grey's Anatomy and I couldn't love the name more. This was two coats topped with Seche Vite. I love this color.
Look #3 is Precision Nail Lacquer's "Walking On Air." It's a beautiful lilac polisha and I wish my photo looked more of what the color looks like. It's not as gray in real life and it's a really pretty shade of purple. I stamped it using Bundle Monster's stamping plate BM413 from their new collection and rhinestones someone got me from Japan.

Make sure to grab your Precision Nail Lacquers and the new OPI Mariah Carey Winter Holiday Collection from HB Beauty Bar!

DELICATE FLOWERS ON NUDE

Tomorrow's my first day at my new job so I decided to go a little subtle (subtle compared to what I usually do).

It's a delicate look and I love the combination of a nude color, rhinestones, and flowers.
Products Used:

I think Sandstorm by Precision Nail Lacquer is my new favorite nude polish. I'm wearing three coats topped with Seche Vite. I have five other Precision Nail polishes to try and I can't wait to see them on my nails. This is part of the Oasis Collection. You can purchase Sahara for $5.95 or the whole collection for $30.00

Make sure to look at all their collections. I can't seem to choose a favorite.

The flower decals are from Sigh Star, a store full of such pretty water decals. What I love about them (besides how pretty the designs are) is that it doesn't even look like a decal. It could almost pass as free hand nail art (although I'd never be able to make flowers that perfect). This one is "Tropical Escape" and retails for only $2.35.

And lastly, I think I've found a new favorite website, Tmart.com . This is where I got the rhinestones from. They have a wide variety of products, not just in health and beauty but car accessories, cell phones, computers, apparel, you name it, they have it. Their health and beauty section has a wide variety of products and their Nail Supplies section does not disappoint.
