Happy happy Monday!!! =))
Here I am at work again!!! I keep playing and playing the lottery and I just cannot win!!! What's up with that??? I think it's a conspiracy against me!!! =))
Btw, in case you haven't noticed, Life In Color! finally has its own Facebook page! So follow if you'd like! =)
Today's Monday Blues start off the new theme in my personal theme challenge: the Holidays, which in this case is Halloween!! I really like this holiday!! I love walking in the streets and seeing how people dressed up their houses. Also, I go to an annual Halloween party where it's so much fun to see what my co-workers made themselves into! So for the next week and a half expect to see some Halloween nail art. For the most part that is =) And Halloween themed polishes of course!! Today's Halloween debut is China Glaze "Bizarre Blurple"!
Bizarre Blurple is mostly dark, almost navy blue with very strong purple undertones. I definitely like it but I'm not sure if I love it.. It may be too purple for me? I couldn't really see the shimmer in real life, I'm not quite sure why it looks so prominent in the pictures. Two coats of somewhat runny, but self-leveling formula.
Then I applied OPI "My Boyfriend Scales Walls" to my accent nail, two coats of self-leveling off-white creme. Then I decided to add some Halloween accent and decided to 3 bats from BM-213, using Finger Paints "Black Expressionism". And that's when everything went to hell. I couldn't get the damn design to transfer properly to my nail for the life of me!! So I sorta took a layer off my nail with some acetone which left black smudges. I decided to stamp over it anyway, because I thought that it would give it a 'saran-wrap' sorta look... wrooong!!! It just looks dirty. dammit, another fail!! stupid stamping!!! On top of that I showed it to my hubby (that's my ultimate cool vs lame oracle) and he looks at my nails with this look... so I already know that it's not good... he's looking, he's looking and finally says: 'ooooh! these are supposed to be bats!! I thought they are just squiggly lines!!" WTF!! Effing men =))
Bizarre Blurple is part of China Glaze 2012 Wicked collection and is currently available for sale at all retailers that sell this brand.
My Boyfriend Scales Walls is part of OPI 2012 Spiderman collection and can be still purchased at certain retailers, otherwise widely available on eBay and Amazon.
So... be honest... do my bats look dirty or can they pass away for "I meant to do that" look??
