So the only reason I label this a Halloween mani is because I used black polish, lol. I'm just not creative when it comes to "theme" nails, and I suck at stamping, so this is gonna have to do for a Halloween mani.
Well last week AmyGrace from the Polished Perfectionist posted this gorgeous mani, a reverse glitter gradient, I was mind blown! I might have actually told her that too. I love it so much, I wanted to try my own.
I did two coats of Zoya's Raven. I don't know if I've shown this polish before, but I love it. Sure it looks like your typical black, but it's got a slight silver shimmer though it....just look at the bottle! I had to clean the lip of my bottle, I think it cause air to get in it, because the polish was ridiculously thick. Does anyone else have problems with Zoya's dry time? I swear, it always take a crazy long time. It took probably about 30 to 40 minutes for the two coats to dry to the touch.....ugg, annoying!
I then sponged on Nina Ultra Pro in Glamrock. Is the name of this polish brand really Nina Ultra Pro, or is it just Ultra Pro....anyone know? It's bugging me. Anyways, I love Glamrock, I've worn it as an accent nail recently, and I need to wear it as a full mani. Does anyone else think the color should be green though? Every time I think of Glamrock, I think of shamrock...lol.
Does anybody else hate these Ultra Pro bottles? Everytime I see them at Sally's I walk on by. The bottles and the print on the front seem very dated.
The one thing I didn't anticipate until I literally started sponging my first finger, was the cleanup. Holy effing shit was this a bitch to clean up! It took me a at least 45 minutes to do *some* clean up, then I had to scrub away the rest of the glitter in the shower. I am serious when I say this manicure took me 2 hours to do! But it was totally worth it cause I love the shit out of it. I hope to wear it longer than a day if all goes well!
Hope you all had a wonderful week! Anyone doing anything fun this weekend, a Halloween party maybe? I would love to hear what your going as. As for me, we never do anything fun for Halloween. I wish I had a party to go to, cause I totally want to go as a Jersey Shore Meatball!!
