40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Halloween

Hello and Happy Friday! I am on the road as we speak heading to Oklahoma for a week to visit my family. I have some guest posts lined up, as well as a couple scheduled posts from me. I am hoping to squeeze in one more Halloween mani, but it is not looking promising so I'm glad I have this one to share with you today!

This week's prompt for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas is, of course, Halloween! I had a few ideas in mind for today but no time to execute something detailed so I went with a quick but fun favorite - a dry brush mani!

Darling Diva Polish: Hug My Face Collection (AKA Alien Collection) - Swatches and Review

Hello everyone! I feel like it's been forever since I posted a collection review. Life has been slapping me upside the head lately and I feel like I've been a pretty crappy blogger. I'm hoping to be able to get back on a more regular schedule soon. I am going to be out of town next week but I have some guest posts lined up for you, as well as some posts scheduled from me. Hopefully I will be able to get caught up very soon!

Today I have a collection that launched a few weeks ago and is currently available! This is my favorite type of collection - a wide variety of colors and finishes so there is something to please everyone! I have a lot of photos so keep on scrolling for the Darlin Diva Hug My Face Collection!

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Orange, Purple and Green

Hello! I am late with this week's 40 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge, but better late than never, right? I had grand plans this weekend that went down the drain due to being sick. But I did this mani on Friday and couldn't wait to share it with you! The color prompt this week was orange, purple and green and my pattern prompt was fluid lines. I just had to break out my Girly Bits neons again for this mani!

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Geeks - Harry Potter Dementors

Hello and Happy Saturday! This week's theme for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas is Geeks! I hadn't done a Harry Potter in a very long time and had this one in mind to try, so I figured now would be a great chance! So for today I created some dementors from Harry Potter!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Autumn: Autumn Treats!

I am back with my final look for Digit-al Dozen Autumn Week! I am squeezing in by the skin of my teeth, but at least I made it! I asked a friend to name things she thought of when she thought of Autumn besides changing leaves and she mentioned s'mores and I ran with that idea for this look.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Autumn: Plaid

Hello lovelies! I'm sorry I haven't posted the last couple of days. Life threw me some unexpected curve balls so I am behind on my Digit-al Dozen posts, but I'm back with another Autumn manicure today! I really love how this one turned out!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Autumn: Day 1 - Autumn Colors and Branches

It's a brand new Digit-al Dozen Week and this week our theme is Autumn! I love autumn, it is my favorite season. That being said, I don't really have autumn here. It was 102 degrees today in AZ, and will continue to hit triple digits all week. I decorate for autumn and enjoy the cool (for here) mornings, but I know it's not the same as living somewhere with 4 seasons and gorgeous changing leaves. I hope I get to live somewhere with 4 seasons some day, but until then I will pretend.

My mani today was created from the perspective of standing under trees and looking up where the leaves are changing above. I wasn't sure I loved it when I finished it, but it has grown on me today as I've worn it!

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Teal Fishtail Braid Mani

Happy Saturday, everyone! I'm back with the Crumpet's Nail Tarts to bring another week of 40 Great Nail Art Ideas! I was originally just going to participate in one half of the challenge but I think I lost my mind and decided a few days ago to jump in with both feet and do both halves, which means one mani every week for this year-long challenge! This portion of the challenge has everyone using the same color prompt, but with varying techniques. My technique this week is fishtail braid and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out! Especially since I have not done very many fishtail braid designs before.
