NOTD: Happy Halloween Mani

Hey everyone, today I have a quick Nail of the Day post to share with you.  This is my Happy Halloween manicure.  I think it looks adorable, and am really happy with it.  The best part is that it took no time at all to do, which is great because, as you know, right now no time is exactly what I have.  My nails are pretty short right now because of packing and whatnot, (I also apologize for the sad state of my nails and cuticles, but you know how it is) and I think this works really well for short nails.  I used Sinful Colors Citrine and Black on Black for the polish, and topped them with water decals from Born Pretty.

Here are close ups of the water decals.  You can find them here at (For 10% off on regular priced items, use coupon code BBBK31.) They are super cute, and they took minutes to apply.  I’m really getting the hang of water decals now, and I love how easy they are.  Obviously, it’s too late to order for this year, but keep them in mind for next year.  If you want to achieve a similar look, I believe I saw that Kiss has some Halloween themed nail stickers at Walgreens for $2.99.

Here is a look at both hands.  It’s not the most complicated manicure I’ll ever do, (or frankly, the neatest, lol) but I like it.  It’s perfect for something last minute before Friday gets here.  Speaking of, I am happy to say that my costume is all set with a couple days to spare.  Yay!  No last-minute running around this year.  It’s our last year here in NC with my niece, so the Hubs and I are going over to my sister’s house.  We are all dressing up and taking the kids Trick-or Treating.  I’m going to be a Fall Fairy with a gigantic tu-tu, ’cause that’s how I roll. 😉  How about you?  What are you doing for Halloween?  Are you dressing up?  Let me know in the comments below.

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.
