Happy halloween y'all!!!!

Posted on Sunday, October 31, 2010 | 14 Comments

Just a post to wish everyone who celebrates halloween to have a great one =)

I didn't do any halloween nails but I did carve a pumpkin for a contest.  I came in first place and won $100 so that was pretty great....I didn't post much last week because the pumpkin carving destroyed and stained my nails pretty badly....ekk.

I followed Ray Villafane's tutorial found here: http://www.villafanestudios.com/pumpkins.htm?fark

I also wanted to share with you guys my favorite nail polish of ALL TIME!!!This is the one nail polish that did it for me, the one nail polish that cemented my love for nail polish.  I bought this polish about 10 years ago, it is a shimmer metallic blue.  I'm sure china glaze has a dupe for it but I will always be faithful to this bottle/ brand/ color. There's nothing left in the bottle since everything has evaporated but I still keep this polish bottle because I am emotionally attached to it.

*Note: the pictures don't do justice to the color since all the color pigments have changed over time.

I would like to introduce:  Covergirl's Nailslick polish in Deep blue sea!!

So there you go, this is the one polish that did it for me.

If you guys own it and don't mind parting with it please email me at shortwidenails@hotmail.com. I would love to buy it from you, new or used.

by the way, in the photos I am wearing China glaze Dorthy who

    Replying here to your comment about my blog's front page so you'll be sure to see it: I haven't made any changes but that's not to say blogger didn't do something. I'm not seeing that same behavior, though. Can you tell me if it's still doing it, and if so, what browser you're using and what URL you're going to? Thanks!

  7. Oh my goodness! That pumpkin is sooooooooo detailed. Amazing! No wonder you won first place!

    I also love the nail color. You are so talented.

    @colorfulbottle: thanks for your kind comment =) I didn't know much about pumpkin carving until I watched it on tv..and apparently it is a huge competition thing among carvers. and when there are no more pumpkins people carve watermelons..and snow..and they do sand sculptures.
