I Put a Spell on You

Hello and welcome!  Another year has gone by, which means another mani for the Sanderson Sisters.

Every Halloween, my boyfriend and I do some pumpkin carving while watching Hocus Pocus with friends.  It’s one of the few Halloween movies that I’m willing to watch (because as I’ve said before, I’m a big wuss), so I look forward to this every year.  And this time, due to our schedules, we actually did this just days before the 31st.

What I Used:

  • Base Coat:  Glisten & Glow – Base Coat
  • 1st Color:  Painted Polish – Fierce in Facets
  • 2nd Color:  Painted Polish – Stamped in Greenery 2.0
  • Top Coat:  Glisten & Glow – Top Coat
  • Maniology MXM015 stamping plate
  • Maniology MXM016 stamping plate
  • silicone stamper & scraper
  • lint roller sheet
  • Twinkled T clean up brush, size #2
  • acetone nail polish remover

I started with base coat, of course.  And then applied three thin coats of Painted Polish – Fierce in Facets.  I wasn’t going to buy this polish at first, because I already have a ton of purples, but now that I have it I’m glad that I had no self control.   It’s just a perfect, deep, witchy, purple.  Next, I stamped a variety of designs from my September Mani x Me stamping plates.  There are cats, brooms, witches hats, and my personal favorite, the phrase “I put a spell on you.  And now you’re MINE”.

This turned out to be just the perfect Halloween mani.  I love everything about it!  The colors, the images, the overall theme, everything just works well together.  And the colors pop even more in the sunlight.

Update:

I almost made it through the week with great nails.  But there was a weak spot on my left middle finger, and that was the end of it.  You can see that I tried filing it down to try and protect it from my picking, but that didn’t work too well.  Now I’ll just have to file all of my nails down to match.
