Midnight-Grace Potter Nails!

Hey there! I don't know if you noticed, but I never posted a Halloween mani this year. I had concert plans for Halloween and decided not to dress up because I was going with my dad, and he wasn't going to dress up so that seemed a little odd. I did however re-use my Tinkerbell costume from last year for a Halloween themed museum night, but I did the same nails as last year, so no need to post them again.

HOWEVER. I did do my nails on Halloween. Funny story actually. Halloween morning, I actually had a dream that I was an hour late for the concert because I was doing my nails and my dad was screaming at me. HYSTERICAL. Well, it almost came true. I ended up going for a run, took of my old polish (glitter-took FOREVER), showered, did my two little cousins' nails, and helped my mom do her Halloween make-up. So stressed out I was all "I NEED TO DO MY NAILS!" I managed to get them done in time, but it was a close call…HA.

ANYWAY-ON TO NAILS. I went to see Grace Potter (AGAIN!) and decided to do my nails based on the cover of her new album "Midnight", minus her face. I loved the way these turned out, and they half glowed in the dark. (bonus!) Also, concert was fantastic. I can't recommend Grace enough, she's a friggan rock goddess.

I Used:
  • OPI: Pamplona Purple
  • OPI: Suzi's Hungary Again!
  • Serum No.5: Day Glow
  • China Glaze: Pixie Dust
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat

Mockingjay Part 2 Nails!

The day is here guys. Mockingjay Part 2 comes out tonight!!!! I'm seeing it in IMAX! I'm so sad this is the end but so excited to see it! I'm going to sob so hard. I'm kind of concerned for my health. I cried when I finished the book. Like, why? I don't even know. I think just because it ended and it made me emotional. I just finished re-reading the second half of the book the other night to refresh my memory, don't worry though, I didn't cry this time.

Per usual, I have to do a mani for this day. You can check out my other "Hunger Games" mani's here (yikes), here, here & here.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do, since I already did Mockingjay nails based on the book cover. I decided to go with the red spray painted rebel Mockingjay from some of the early promo posters. I did it across two fingers, so they have to be lined up just right to tell what it is...I added some arrows of course to my index & pinkie nail and then made a sort of fire explosion on my thumb?

Anyone else going tonight??
