NOTD: Lace Halloween nails

Good morning ladies! How is everyone doing today? I hope you all are excellent, myself on the other hand, I'm sick. I think I have the stomach flu or something. I can't keep anything down.
Keep me in your thought. Thank you.

Anyways, on to the nails. I've been seeing the lace nails a lot on the internet and of course, I wanted to try it! So, I went to Walmart and purchased some lace, they had white, black, purple and red. So, I got white, black and red. After I arrived home, I couldn't decide what color to use under the lace. I asked my boyfriends opinion. He suggested my green, glow in the dark zom-body to love by OPI. Zom-body to love is from the 2011 Halloween collection, it comes with a black shatter as well. The lace on top of zom-body to love would be the perfect Halloween mani! And, its super easy.

You will need:
*10 nail size lace pieces
*Any color of polish for a base under your lace
*Top coat, I used Seche Vite
*Pair of tweezers

No matter how much I tried, I couldn't get the polish to glow. But, a dear friend of mine could. Here's the link to her blog so you can see:

And here are my nails:

It is super easy to do and it only took 1 minute to apply!

Let me know if you try them.
Thank you for reading and have a grade weekend!

Double lightening bolt

Hello beauties!!! Today I have a sort of quick post for you. As I am typing, I am in the vehicle,where I took most of my photos and it is almost my time to drive because we are road tripping today and I must hurry and post this.

So, lastnight, I decided to try the double lightening bolt mani after I seen Rebecca at Rebeccalikesnails post a photo in a group that were in on Facebook together. So, here's my version:

Looks cool huh? It isn't very sunny so, I didn't catch the holo like I wanted.

This is what I used:
Nfu-oh aqua base
Nfu-oh 61
OPI - ink suede
Essence- Choose me

I hope you liked it!

A gray kind of day

Hello beauties of mine!
Today is cleaning day at my house. Blahh, I know, exactly. So, I'm not very excited about sweeping and mopping and dusting and whatnot.... So, today, I decided to use a gray polish. I don't own many gray polishes because I don't think it looks right with my skin tone.
The gray I have chosen for today is China glaze pelican gray.
It is a light gray with a touch of gray shimmer, beautiful in the Sun. I was trying to decide what I was going to do to make it look better on my skin so, I found myself trying to decide between wet n wild Hannah Pinktana which is more purple than pink with lots of micro holo glitter, its so pretty and OPI I lily love you, is a hot pink jelly base with lots of flakie-ness to it. And I couldn't decide which one so, I chose both! Ha ha. Here they are:

Now, I'm off to clean!
You all have a great day! Thank you for reading!
