Trick or Treat! It’s Halloween Guest Post Week!|Halloween Skittle Manicure by Xin Yu

*Purchased By Me

Hello my lovelies, have a good Sunday!

It’s my turn to show you my Halloween themed nail art for this guest post week! ^^ Honestly I’ve never celebrated Halloween before, but I always thought the idea of trick and treating, dressing up, carving pumpkins was really cool! I even did some googling on the significance of Halloween heh.

Here in Singapore, though we do have a Halloween Horrors event, many Singaporeans don’t really have the tradition of celebrating it- it’s not even an official holiday here! Nonetheless, I persevered and finally came up with a skittle manicure which I had fun doing.

For my index finger, I painted The Face Shop PP404, a gorgeous shimmery purple which dries with a bit of matte/texture. I then added some spiderwebs using my silver Uniball Signo pen.

My middle finger is an eyeball design, painted using H&M White, with the rest of the details done using my gel pens. I even tried using highlighter on my nails for the first time- the blue is done using that hehe!

And as I’m a cat lover, no Halloween manicure can be completed without my favourite black cat. I used The Face Shop BK901, a beautiful polish with duochrome shimmer for the base, and added in the whiskers and eyes using my white and gold Uniball Signo gel pens respectively.

Meow! My black cat from Emily the Strange appears in the shot above. :3 I actually don’t know if its one of the original 4 cats, and if it is, I’m guessing it’s either Mystery or Sabbath.

My pinky finger was painted simply with 2 coats of Layla Ceramic Effect No 53, a drool-worthy flakie polish. Unfortunately the gorgeousness of this polish was not captured on my nail here. ): This reminded me of blood…albeit pretty one.

And for a silly “hold all the bottles just for the fun of it” shot:

Hope you guys are feeling the Halloween vibes!

Trick or Treat! It’s Halloween Guest Post Week!|Pumpkins and Spiders! by Bethanie

Hey everyone 🙂  Couple of weeks ago, Xin Yu and I decided to do some Halloween manis and this is my take on it. To be honest, I have never celebrated Halloween before as it is not popular here, in Singapore. Nonetheless, I decided to attempt my first ever Halloween mani! ^_^

As usual, indecisive me took to the web first, to look for some inspiration! Personally, I like to see what others have created before and then add my own spins and twists to it. After admiring some awesome designs, I eventually fell in love with this mani done by Chelsea Queen

She did an amazing job and even though I’m not as good as her, I tried my best and this is what I came up with!

Most of my designs are similar to hers but I decided to change the words on the pinkie. So instead of “Trick or Treat”, I wrote “Anyone there?” as it reminded me of a typical line in a horror film. 😛

Polish and pens used:

Purple- OPI A grape fit

Orange- Mixture of Zoya Thandie and Sasatinnie Yellow polish

Black- Sasatinnie Black polish and black 0.38 Uniball signo gel pen

Yellow- Sasatinnie Yellow polish

Matte top coat- Etude house Help my finger collection

Hope you liked this mani!

Till next time,

Bethanie

Femme Fatale Cosmetics: Suspended Starlight

*Purchased By Me

Hey dears, it’s Monday again! Time flies by so insanely fast…:/ Hope the week has got off to a good start for everyone!

Today I have a continuation of my swatch of The Face Shop BK901, with an accent nail of Femme Fatale Cosmetics Suspended Starlight. Before I purchased BK901, I noticed the base colour and immediately thought of FFC Glinting Lodestone as I felt they would make a great pair! Turns out it makes good undies for Suspended Starlight too! (:

Suspended Starlight is described as ” a stunning mix of deep blues, navy and sparks of bright blue all in a sheer jelly navy base. Iridescent flashes and silver holo stars / moons complete the polish, perfect for adding a little starlit sky look to your nails 🙂 We recommend use over a dark blue/navy/black base. Suspended Starlight is part of our Christmas Trio. Each bottle is made to order using a 3-Free base!”

There was no issue with glitter application for Suspended Starlight– in fact, I had to ensure I did not get too much glitter onto my nails! Unfortunately it was quite tough to get out the moon and star shaped glitters; I only managed to get one moon glitter on my thumb. Nevertheless this is possibly due to me not suspending the bottle long enough.

It’s like a galaxy happening on my nails… ❤

I also really loved the subtle flashes coming from the undies, really helped to portray the idea of night sky!

IMG_6528 after 3 days of wear

As you can see, only my undies started having tip wear after around 3 days! I was also beginning to have urges to remove my nail polish, but I managed to resist and hold out for 5 days.

I should try swatching Suspended Starlight over a navy base too, I think this will bring out the black shard/black glitters nicely. (:

Suspended Starlight can be purchased from Femme Fatale Cosmetics(international shipping now available!) or any of their international distributors.
