Happy Halloween everyone, sorry I have been lazy at updating this week. I have been busy at work and I also have had friends visiting from Paris so I have been busy spending time with them. Halloween is by far my favourite time of the year, however this year I have no plans.. It will probably be an evening of scary movies and lots of yummy food! I have however been in the mood for halloween since Thursday.. I have been quite literally vamping it up with my nails, make up and jewellry this week.
I decided to go for dark nails and a blood dripping effect tip. I used to do nail art ALL the time but for the last few years I've stopped after doing this I can see myself getting back into the experimenting. I wanted the base colour to be black but for some reason I couldn't find a black nail polish anywhere. So I went for a navy blue, this is the M&S nail colour in 'Jewel' that I recently did a post on. The red nail polish I used for the tips was Eyeko's 'Saucy' nail polish, this was actually quite easy to achieve the blood effect as the brush is quite thin.
I went out last night and went for dark make up all around. I really love going for a strong lip with a strong eye.. I know people insisit you do one or the other but not me.. plus it's HALLOWEEN!!
