Double post! Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge Week 4-Green, and Lacquer Legion October theme-After Dark

Wow, okay, so I am way late for week 4 of the Blogger Bragger challenge.  In my defense…I just didn’t feel like doing it.  This PhD work is just starting, and already it’s really tiring.  So much so that I find myself struggling to do my nails.  Which I find just sad.  Plus, I broke three of my nails and had to trim them all down more than I would have liked, which, ya know, also made me sad.  But going through the gallery on PiggieLuv pulled me out of my slump and gave me inspiration to complete the week’s theme and post it, even if it is two days past the week’s deadline.

Anyway, this is the post on PiggieLuv that I just had to try.  It looked so cool, and gradients are something I can do, so why not?  My green polishes were Sinful Colors Pistache, Sinful Colors Exotic Green, and some no-name cheap green that I use all the time in nail art.  My white is FingerPaints Paper Mache, and the dark outline for the path is Essie Stylenomics.

Pretty, right?  The gradient turned out really well, and the path looks good too.  Very happy with how it turned out.  I really liked it and was actually disappointed when I had to take it off in favor of today’s other mani.

Today’s other mani being, of course, my Lacquer Legion nail art.  This month’s theme is ‘After Dark,’ and honestly wasn’t one that I was too keen on doing.  But since I had skipped the August theme and unintentionally missed the September one, I thought I should try to do something for this month.  Well, it’s not my best or most creative work, but I had fun with it.  I used Sally Hansen Black Out, Revlon Parfumerie Sunlit Grass, Kleancolor Concrete Gray, Zoya Carey, China Glaze White on White, Orly Glowstick, and what I think is Essie Bobbing for Baubles (the label is missing, so don’t quote me on that).

Now let’s get this show on the road…

What’s more stereotypical of a Halloween night than a haunted house?  And it looks like someone’s been dared to go inside!  He’s sure not the brightest bulb is he?  As it turns out, neither is his flashlight.  He’s left alone and afraid in the dark, at the mercy of the creature that haunts the house.

And I’ll just leave the ending up to you, yeah?  I favor a happy one myself.  Don’t like scary stories or their horrible endings. 😛
