I think it's a shame that Halloween isn't widely embraced here in Oz. I've had the opportunity to live in places where they do celebrate Halloween and I remember it being so much fun! The decorations, the parties, the sweets.....it was all done so elaborately, everyone goes all out and really gets into it. I absolutely loved it!
But over here its so dull =(. I hope that over the coming years maybe it will be more widely recognised as a reason to partay up! And eat an endless supply of sweets without being told to stop, and also an excuse to egg peoples' houses and play pranks without getting reprimanded =P. So much fun.
In the spirit of Halloween, I decided to paint my nails in a sort of Halloween theme. Recently I purchased some more polishes and one that caught my eye was a lime green polish I picked up at the chemist. So I thought I might do a slime design! So this is Satin Lime Green (doesn't have a name for the colour =P)
Originally I wanted to put a green slime pattern over black, but this lime green polish is SO SHEER!! It took about 4 coats to get it this opaque!! So I free-handed a black slime pattern using a dotting tool =).
I really liked how this turned out! And it stood out so much. I caught people staring at them on my way to work on the train, I got quite self-conscious =P. Needless to say, the lime green practically clashed with every outfit I wore haha. The day after I did it, I could see some tip wear, so I thought I might matte-ify the tips and see how it turned out, before I thought of re-doing my nails....
Didn't turn out exactly how I pictured it, but it was OK. Because the layers of this manicure were so thick, it started chipping really soon =(. Oh well, it was good while it lasted =D.
Happy Halloween peeps!! xx
