Monday Blues: Creepy Eyes

Hello my lovelies! Happy Halloween! I don't usually celebrate this holiday since there's no real tradition for it in my country. Nobody goes trick-or-treating here, so there's no point in Halloween without candy. But I was in the mood to do some themed nails this year because I haven't done any in ages. I then realized that I have very few Halloween stamping plates, so I didn't have many options. I finally got inspired by the immensely talented Ohmygoshpolish to freehand some creepy eyes. Of course mine aren't as cool as her's because she used a magnetic polish but I still think they came out ok.

Monday Blues: Dreamology

Hello my lovelies! How's your Monday so far? I decided to have a long weekend so I took today off to catch up on my rest. I have a fun new stamping plate to show you today, along with the blue manicure that I created using it. There are quite a few Moyra plates in my collection, and I am very fond of them because they have beautiful and original designs for an affordable price. Not all my Moyra plates stamp perfectly (reviews here, here and here), but most of them are good quality and I think they've learned from their mistakes because the last ones I've purchased are top notch. The one I'm showing you today came out this year and I'm happy to report that I had no issues with it. Here's the manicure I created using it.

Monday Blues: Double Leaves

Hello my lovelies! It's been a crazy Monday for me, but at least I managed to get everything done. It's now almost dinner time and I plan to relax a bit, but not before I write this post for you. This weekend I went through my older pictures and realized I had a few unposted manicures. Most of them are not blue, but there is one that has a bit of blue in it. So in the interest of getting rid of my backlog, here's a double stamping I did a couple of months ago. My nails were very short then and I think this sparkly manicure looked perfect on them.

Summer Sunset

Hello my lovelies! It's Saturday and I haven't posted anything except for Monday Blues for a really long time, but today I decided it was time to show you some manicures that have been on my waiting list for ages. The first one is a summer nail art that I created back in August but didn't get to post. I know it's totally out of season and it seems kind of weird for me to post this now, but I really like it and now that I rediscovered it in my folders I can't help but show it to you. Plus is reminds me of summer which is always nice on such a cold gloomy day.

Monday Blues: Midnight Unicorn

Hello my lovelies! It seems that every Monday Blues post I complain about the weather. I can't help it though because it's absolutely freezing outside. It feels more like winter even though it's just the beginning of October. I also heard that we have an extremely cold winter ahead of us, which makes me sad because cold is not my cup of tea, even though I'm a December baby. Anyway, today's post continues the series of fall inspired manicures. Whenever I think of fall nails I think of flakies, probably because they resemble fallen leaves. Today's manicure is all about flakies and a bit of nostalgia. Here we go!

Monday Blues: Fall Inspiration

Hello my lovelies! Let me start by saying that today's weather is really giving me the blues, Monday Blues that is. It's been raining all day and I just hate it. The only thing to lift my spirits is the manicure I'm about to show you. I created this one by getting inspired by fall colors. For me the good fall colors are beautiful shades of grey, dark blue, purple and even a bit of orange. None of that brown and khaki if it's possible. So I took these shades (with the exception of orange) and combined them in a manicure. The final result makes me really happy.
