I feel like I haven't posted in so long! Reality is that I had a couple of manis that I wore for three days, and I was having a crisis of sorts with my pictures (more on that at the bottom of the post.)
Today's mani is my first venture into mildly Halloween-y nails. I'm not at all excited for Halloween this year; I used to get excited about dressing up and going trick-or-treating with my friends (and the candy-eating that followed) but this year my mom has finally pulled the plug on that one and isn't letting me go, saying that I'm too old. (16 isn't too old as long as you're dressed up, right?) Since I do school online and am not at all the type to go to crazy parties, I'll most likely be spending the night at home watching re-runs of all the Castle Halloween episodes alone.
Mildly depressing rant over, here is my somewhat Halloween-y mani. I don't care for the standard orange and black combination, so I went instead for silver and purple. Close enough, right? I started this mani with a base of Picture Polish Violet Femme, which in my opinion is the most perfect shade of purple polish ever. Purple is my favourite colour, but I don't have many purple polishes because I'm so picky about exactly which shades I like; this one hits the spot! It's deep and rich, and super saturated with an almost-neon purple pigment that is oh-so-perfect. Two coats, and a stamp with BM-305 using Essie No Place Like Chrome, and this is the result.

So, the picture crisis: I used to take my pictures outside on the deck in the morning before I left for school and dance, but now the annual torrential downpour has started and is unlikely to let up at all until March. That, plus the fact that it's not very light out by the time I leave in the morning, and I'm a little panicky as to what to do about my photos. I made a lightbox and played around with it a lot, but I still can't get anything close to what I want my photos to look like. I'll play with that, and hope that I can get something to work!
How do you like my Halloween-ish mani, or do you even think it says Halloween at all? Hate to be a party pooper but is anyone else as not-excited for Halloween as I am?
