The Digit-al Dozen Does Spooky Days--Happy Halloween!!

Hi Everyone!!! Happy Halloween!  I hope everyone is having a ghoulishy good time and enjoys their weekend!

I hauled out the googlie eyes again because they are just so much fun!
I decided to do some fun mummies sugar spun style for today's mani!
Funny story! I lost a couple of eyeballs in bed last night and a couple more at work.  I had to get some gorilla glue from one of the executive secretaries today. Thankfully she totally understands the importance of well placed mummy eyes.  When I went to lunch I opened my kindle to read a bit and 2 googlie eyes fell out of it LOL!  Must have someone gotten closed up in the kindle when I went to bed.  So there they sat on the desk just staring at me all day!

I hope everyone has enjoyed this weeks impromptu Spooky Days posts and don't forget to enter the giveaway!!  You can find it HERE

The Digit-al Dozen Does Spooky Days--Does this need more salt?

Hi Everyone!  Happy Hump Day to you all.  Oh my lord today has been SO frustrating!  The space bar on my laptop does not work!  It came off and I cannot get it back on!  I don't care how many tutorials on you tube I have watched there is no way this sucker is ever going on again.  So now it lays loose over it and when you type more than 100 wpm that sucker does not stay put!  I   am having a heck of a time with it!  I'm going to just replace the  whole keyboard I think.  Rather my son will be replacing my keyboard. In any case it's driving me nuts!! 

So today I tried to do something scary and instead it turned out cute! I was going for a really creepy cauldron but don't think it's too creepy.  Check it out!
   How cute is is this????? I used FUN 7 for my cauldron bubbles and then Wistonia 221 for the witch BM224 for my spooky trees and BM04 for the bat.  I added some spiders from MM11
At first I just had the googlie eyes in there and at the last minute I decided to add some spiders!  I think it turned out great!
Great but not scary LOL!  I guess I'm cute with Halloween even when I'm trying not to be!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Spooky Days--I'm batty for you!

Hi Everyone Happy Tuesday!  It's Day 2 for our Spooky Days Halloween week.  Man after yesterday I feel the pressure!  OMG did you see Jacki from The Adventures In Acetone's jack-o-lanterns???!!! They were really glowing!  Everyone is doing a great job so far and yes Vic went creepy with her Annabelle nails gah!  So freaking scary.  When we were kids growing up we used to watch Channel 18 and Creature Feature on Saturday nights.  Tammy did some candy corn nails that totally reminded me of the Creature Feature monsters!  EPIC!  

Today I decided to be a cook kid again and matte my nail art.  I remember when I first started doing nails I was not a fan of matte at all but now I just love it!

Here's my day 2 bats & owl nails!
I was showing these off last night at had a squee moment when Sheila from The Pointless Cafe said these might be her favorite of all time! OH MY GOD!  Sheila does amazing stuff by hand so what a freaking compliment!
I had to get creative with these because these trees actually don't exist. I made them up by using part of BM224.  The bats are from BM213 and the awesome owl is from MM38.  

Let's go and check out what everyone else has come up with today!

Digit-al Dozen Spooky Days--Kitty Kat!

Hi Everyone!! Happy Monday! Woot it's the week of Halloween!  The Digital Dozen decided to get together for some fun and spooktacular good times!  I don't know about you but I tend to be more of a cute Halloween person rather than one who goes for blood and gore.  I'm kicking off our week with a cute little kitty kat mani!
How cute is this little guy just sitting in a tree waiting for Halloween to come?
Sometimes when I just need some inspiration for nail art I'll look at paper plates and cups online.  I ran across this cute image that inspired my mani
Cute isnt it?!  Had I thought ahead I would have tried to get the haunted house in there but it just didn't happen LOL!

Here they are together, I think I did pretty good!
So there you have it!  I'm starting this week out with the cute!  Let's check out if anyone else is doing cute!

Doubling Down with Darling Diva!

Hi Everyone!  Happy weekend!  This upcoming week is going to be one filled with Halloween I'm sure!  We've had a really nice weekend with lots of sunshine and it actually hit 60 the other day too so nice to be able to have the windows open.  You know these days are coming few and far between.

Today I'm sharing a couple of cool mani's I did all Halloween related with 2 Darlings Diva's.  The good news is Darling Diva is having a 20% off sale today through midnight and I'll be sure to link her store and the code after the pics!

First up is The Immortal a gorgeous holo topper with charcoal flakies.  I chose to wear it alone not over anything and did 2 generous coats.  I just love it!  I did some stamping with my DRK-A plate to  give it a wallpaper look.  Then decided to add some ghosts and a demon to it for that perfect Halloween feel!
Isn't this a stunning holo topper???
I decided to add the ghosts and demon to it just based on the name of the polish LOL!
I think I will try layering this over some of my dark fall polishes--definitely over a dark red to see how it looks

The Immortal is part of Darling Diva's WitchEE Collection

Next up is Are We On Cops?  Which is a charcoal black holo with red micro glitter in it.  
My favorite thing about it is definitely the red glitters!

I found this picture on line and that's what I used for my inspiration
How'd I do?
Are We On Cops?  Is part of Darling Diva's The Pageant Collection

Now for the cool part! Darling Diva is having a sale now until Midnight tonight!  If you use the code FALL20 you will save 20% from your order.  She has a new collection out as well The Salem collection all with gorgeous dark colors just perfect for fall

To get to her store go HERE 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!! I hope you all have a fantastic day!!

Tutorial Tuesday--Autumn leaves!

Hi Everyone Happy Tuesday!  I'm showcasing another tutorial mani today from my nail crush Sveta Sanders.  OMG I just love absolutely everything she does and I usually say "omg why didn't I think of that??" after she puts something new out.  This is one of the first ones I'd seen after I discovered her and I feel in love with it instantly!  All I had to do was wait patiently for my MoYou  Mother Nature 07 plate.

I decided to use slightly different colors because these are the colors of Fall here.  I went with the super pretty Elevation Streetside NYC and OPI Visions Of Love for my gradient 
Believe it or not I had a hard time with this gradient!
Say it isn't so gradient queen but oh yes it was.  I could not do mine the way Sveta did hers I had to improvise!
The MoYou Mother Nature 07 plate is nothing but leaves!  It's fantastic and perfect for an Autumn mani!
I like this gradient look from side to middle how about you all?

If you'd like to see the ORIGINAL TUTORIAL Sveta did check it out here! 

I think it's awesome and I just love looking at all her stuff!
This is definitely one gorgeous Autumn mani!

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you all have a fantastic day!
