Different Dimension Fall Me Maybe

I went crazy getting my hands on fall-themed nail polishes! This is one of them from Different Dimension. My first nail polish I've gotten to try from them (of the few I purchased, excited to swatch!). This is beautiful. I keep staring at my nails because of how gorgeous the glitter is. Fall Me Maybe has this small gold, red, orange, and brown glitter in it. It's beautiful, especially over Revlon Copper Penny.

This is three coats of Different Dimension Fall Me Maybe over one coat of Revlon Copper Penny and one coat of Seche Vite.

Without further ado, here you go!

TIHNAC Jack-O-Lanterns!

I know I am late with this post, but I have had midterms that past two weeks as well as three essays to complete!! Such a nightmare. Anyways, my Jack-O-Lantern nails! I think my cuticles are getting much better now. So exciting!! Just to note, I wanted to try doing a glow effect on my middle finger, just to see how it would look. Didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to, but that's ok. I would have never known.

And just in case you were wondering what the other challenges were coming up, here they are! I'm currently working on the zombie one right now.

Caribbean Seas

I loved this look probably the most out of the six I did in Vegas. Dark green is just perfect for brown eyes! And then with the blue blending out into the highlight, I feel like it makes my eyes glow. Just lovely and awesome at the same time. Hope you guys like it! I really love the Quill Uniliner from Lime Crime, too. Very nice black liner.

This Is Halloween Nail Art Challenge: Ghosts

Today's challenge was to do ghosts!! Super exciting. My ghosts have a story. First of all, ignore the lousy cleanup job. I'm super sick and did this while doing homework because I really wanted to put it up. My thumbnail ghost is a scaredy ghost. My middle finger is the girly ghost. And my pinky finger is the angry ghost! He's actually trying to yell at the scaredy ghost, but the girly ghost is in the middle to stop the fighting. Oh, yeah, true ghost story. :D

Rainbow Parfait

For the first look I did from my Vegas trip I wanted to try to incorporate all of the colors from this lovely Aquataenia palette from Lime Crime, as well as their Uniliners! It was much brighter in person, and I'm sorry for the box of light around my eye. Dang bright light in the bathroom. I tried turning my back, but it took out a lot of the light. Ah. Oh, well. :( What's funny about this trip is that I did a different look on each eye when I was trying out all of the looks. Then I got hungry and had to walk down into the casino to find some food. Didn't get too many looks. The things you can get away with in Vegas. lol I'm pretty sure a drunk girl was giving me the once over when I walked by. Super crazy. I didn't get a very good picture of my eye closed on this one. Just two good open pics. With bright boxes on my eye. Sigh.

This Is Halloween Nail Art Challenge: Watermarble

Please excuse the delayed time, as I legitimately had no time to post this at all yesterday. And for my awful cuticles. I'm currently working on them, I just picked up a dissolver! I just need to find the time to do it. I'm getting sick from running all over the place! When it came to this challenge, I was supposed to do a watermarble. I did it on my thumb nail. After I did that one, my package of Girly Bits nail polish from llarowe came in! I immediately stopped what I was doing so I could get a quick swatch of them. So... I have one nail of the challenge! I want to do a review of the other nail polishes I've received along with the ones from Girly Bits soon, too. Anyways, check it out!

Purple Iris

I was so excited when I got my hands on this palette! Some of my coworkers, who notice my makeup (but don't say anything), stopped me to look at my eyes because they loved the colors so much. So, needless to say now, this palette is a stunner. Every color is very pigmented, smooth and easy to blend. It's my favorite palette out of the bunch. Especially since I've recently noticed that Goldfish from the Chinadoll palette can be a bitch to get on. (Excuse my language.) I definitely want to get my hands on their primer, I'm sure it would work much better with that as the primer... Small amount of venting aside, I really loved this look and I really love this palette!

This Is Halloween Nail Art Challenge

Super exciting news guys!! I have really gotten into nail art lately, so expect to see nail posts along with makeup looks. I was just in Vegas this past weekend for my boyfriend's 21st and I did SIX different looks!! So they'll be coming up really soon! For my nails, I want to participate in this challenge going on for Halloween nails!
For my look in the Horror Movie prompt, I decided to go with Jason! Friday the 13th, Jason X.... so many others.. This is my first time ever doing something like this! So go easy on me. :)

OPI Base Coat. Lime Crime's Milky Ways. OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys. OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! OPI Suzi Takes The Wheel. OPI Over The Taupe. Chine Glaze Ruby Pumps. Seche Vite Top Coat.

The nose on the mask got all messed up because there ended up being a hair on the brush. :( I didn't want to go over it too much for fear I'd mess up the shading elsewhere. Sigh. Otherwise, I really don't think this is bad at all considering it really is my first time to ever do something like this! This is the challenge with the upcoming prompts:
