A Happy Pumpkin and Ghost...

Happy 15 days until Halloween! XD Hope you're October has been filled with pumpkin patches and nightly walks to enjoy the fantastic decorations. I've been trying to cram as much Halloween festivities into my time off of work. Tonight, for instance, I'm going to a new jack-o-lantern exhibit called The Rise! It's gonna be so much fun!!!

To celebrate all the awesome decorations, I decided to paint my nails inspired by one of my favorite decorations that I have!

He's an old-fashioned blowmold! These are my favorite kinds of decorations, even though they are a pain in the butt to store the rest of the year. We've had this guy for as long as I can remember. So at least since the early 90's. He's a big guy, about 3 feet tall or so. And he lights up!

Autumn Scarecrow...

Can I just say how happy I am that the seasons have finally changed? Oh my gosh, you have no idea. And it's autumn! One of my favorite seasons. I find it a very nostalgic season for me, mostly because I loved it so much as a child. And we have so much to look forward to in the up-coming months.

Also, here is the start of my favorite nail art season! What with the holidays coming up we're about to see a ton of fabulous nail art trickle in on beauty blogs. I can't wait! And here is the start of my contribution!

Disney's Peter Pan and Tinkerbell!

Disney fan alert! Went on a trip to Disneyland a few weeks ago and decided to do a look inspired by one of my all-time favorite Disney movies, Peter Pan.

Now, before I go on, I have to give a huge shout out to IHaveACupcake as her Peter Pan video is the inspiration for this look. And when I say 'inspiration', I really mean that I duplicated her look on one of my hands, then too Cupcake's style and painted Tink on  the other!

Sunset Spiderwebs...

I know it's only mid-August... but I'm eager for the Halloween season. Maybe it's that kids are already back to school or that I just really want it not to be hot anymore. But I've been breaking into my Halloween plates recently. I've been holding myself back, only using images that suggest Halloween and doesn't scream the spooky season. So I opted for spiders and webs.

Yes, I did do the same look twice in a row. I couldn't help it. I love this SO much! And it appeared that many other people did too. I got stopped at work multiple times a day, which was really nice. And while at the service desk at work I helped Lisa Ann Walter (from the 1998 Parent Trap) and she pointed out my nails and said she liked them. XD As a Disney fan I geeked out a little... but only on the inside.

Just out of curiosity, which one do you like better? I think I'm gravitating towards the bottom one. I love the bright yellow at the tips, but I like how dark the top one starts at the cuticle. I just can't decide!
