A not so Halloween-ish Manicure

Despite my disappointment with the Julep Mystery Box in September, I am still addicted to them. So I ordered the October box when it came time, as well as a couple add-ons. And I was not disappointed.

However, I do not have a picture of what I got. I did use two of those colors for the manicure, though.


Once again I took inspiration from Pinterest (Link):

And this is what I came up with:

And here are the colors I used (sorry for the bad lighting):

My base is one of my new Julep colors:  Dana (a white with a blue shimmer, that can't really be seen in this picture). The darker stripe is also a Julep color from October: Ledi (a black with a bit of a black shimmer...that cannot be seen in the manicure). I have three other colors in stripes, though you can really only see two:  Ulta - Glam Session, OPI - Brand New Skates, and Kiss Silver nail art.

Now, here's the fun part. I did this mani on Wednesday morning. I am now two full days in and we are still holding strong to the nails!! (if you've been around here long enough, you know that is a big deal for my nails) I even did dishes yesterday!!  HOORAY!!!  I changed up my bottom/top coat and so far so good.

Well, that's it for me this week. I'm back-logged in nail pictures, so I may actually have nail posts the next two weeks! They'll be older manicures, but at least I'll be posting.

And, as always, linking up with the lovely Jennie Shaw and the rest of the lovelies for:

Head on over and show off your digits!

Happy Friday!

Never fails....

Lately I have a habit of posting an update with a promise to be more consistent in the future, blah, blah, blah. Then three, four, five months later and another update with more empty promises.

I'm sorry.

Apparently I suck at this lately!

This is not a promise to do better. This is just an apology for not keeping my word.

I really don't know what happened. I used to post every. single. week. But that kind of died off last year. I'm not really sure why.

But I want to keep up. I want to keep going. So you, my dear lovely reader, will just have to deal with the sparse posts.

Thanks for hanging in there!
