Purrrrrfect mark. girl mani for Halloween

Purrrrrfect mark. girl mani for Halloween

To recreate this purrrrfect mark. girl mani for Halloween paint your 4 fingers in Tuxedo (black).  Paint your thumb in Gleam Scene (gold) and create two almond shaped eyes with Gleam Scene on your middle and ring.  What’s great about these Nailed It Duos is that the mini size brush is perfect for this kind of nail art!  As that dries use a small thin brush to create the whiskers on your pointer and pinkie in Tinsel Town (silver).  I used an old liquid eyeliner brush from my mark. Get In Line Waterproof eyeliner.  Start with the the center whisker and flick it in a diagonal direction.  This way you can space your 2 outside whiskers off it.  I did the bottom whisker along the tip of the nail to also help with keeping it look neat.  Finally go back with Tuxedo to create the centers of the eyes over the almond shapes you created in Gleam Scene.  And DONE!  It’s actually a pretty simple and a purrrrfect nail costume!

These nails would be great to accompany a Cat Woman or just a cat costume, or even a Cleopatra/Egyptian costume!  If you’re not dressing up this would be a perfect nail costume just to theme out Halloween in your everyday. Then create a Halloween arm party!!!

I was inspired by this black bead bracelet with a black cat from Avon.  I picked this Avon Trick Or Treat Charm Bracelet up to theme out my Halloween week with the mark. Nailed It Duo’s and created an arm party perfect for Halloween.  Yes, you can wear holiday themed jewelry and not look like a crazy cat lady.  Avon has a bunch of these simple bead bracelets with fun holiday charms you can mix and match with your bracelets to make one killer arm party!

Easter Nails and Hamptons Collection Preview

I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do for my Easter mani this year but I knew I wanted a pastel… but I planned on wearing white and cobalt so I needed something to coordinate with the crisp color scheme… then I remembered Kristen got me a cobalt blue crackle for Christmas!  Perfect!  I decided to layer it over a pastel pink… this mark. tickled pink to be exact!

Crackles may not still be “in” but I’m still enjoying them!  They’re a quick and easy way to create an interesting nail “design”.  Plus I thought it looked like a cracked hard boiled easter egg so totally themed out!!
