SPIDERMAN AND MARY JANE

Spiderman and Mary Jane

Hi lovelies!

Halloween is almost upon us, but I've already been hitting the parties.  This is one of my costumes this year.  As a couple we are Peter Parker and Mary Jane, but alone I am just myself with some killer eyeliner and a Spiderman tee.  It's a pretty mild costume, but Ryan's was so fantastic that I felt obligated to go as his other half.  He went around cleaning his glasses with his Spiderman mask and taking photographs of "newsworthy events."

What kind of costumes are you guys putting together this year?  I'd love to hear!

HALLOWEEN NAILS

Halloween nails

Hi lovelies!

Halloween is just the best.  I love it so much, so I get as much out of it as I can!  This week, my nails are celebrating in style with a cute design that screams Halloween, but isn't cliche and cartoony (not that there's anything bad about cartoony Halloween designs, you best believe I will be curled up on my couch watching the Charlie Brown Halloween special in a few days).

I've gotten a lot of compliments on my nails, and everyone thinks it looks difficult, but it's really just a few easy steps.  I used Sinful Colors "Cloud 9" and "Splatter Spell" and Wet n Wild "Heavy Metal."  I have also been using OPI Start to Finish Base & Top Coat, which I expected way more out of.  I'll probably be looking for a new top coat in the near future.

 Halloween nails

Apply two coats of Cloud 9.  It's a light color, so it takes two coats for good coverage.  Once that is dry, apply tape diagonally over the nail so that the tips are exposed in a triangle shape.  Paint on Heavy Metal, and let it dry for a minute.  Then add a coat of Splatter Spell and make sure to get plenty of the glitter in the strokes.  BE PATIENT.  If you take the tape off too soon, it won't give you a good shape.  You can soak your nails in super cold water, but don't give yourself frostbite.  When you're ready to take it off, it helps to run an X-acto knife over the edges of the tape, just to get a clean line.  Apply a topcoat, and you're good to go!

THE HEART IS WISE



Jacket: Natasha's
Cardigan: H&M
Skirt: H&M
Wedges: Shoe Carnival

I love this jacket so much, but I rarely wear it because it's made of velvet.  You know how nails on a chalkboard are awful?  I don't know if you've ever experienced the same kind of cringing with any other textures, but personally I can't touch raw wood.  And Ryan?  His is velvet.  I try to avoid wearing the jacket so he doesn't touch me and freak out, but sometimes I just can't help myself.  It's so warm and cozy.
