Candy Corn-O-Lanterns

It's here, It's here! It's finally Halloween weekend, my favorite weekend of the year! I have been counting down and I am so excited it's finally time to celebrate! I love Halloween so much because it's the only time of the year that you can wear the craziest stuff, and when you go in public it's totally normal. It's the one time of year where dressing strange is normal, and normal is strange. As someone that loves to be weird and loves expressing herself with crazy clothes and makeup, this time of year is pure happiness. Plus, I love cats and bats and pumpkins and skeletons!

For this weekend, and my last official Halloween nail art look for the year, I wanted to go out with some classic Halloween nail art. Even though I hate them, there is nothing more classic Halloween than candy corn. To make them even more festive, I added some jack-o-lantern faces.

The Living Dead

October is almost over, and I realized I had not done any zombie nail art. I am not actually too into zombies myself, but they are an iconic Halloween monster, and that makes them a winner in my book. I have done subtle zombie nail art looks before, but this time I wanted to go all out.

Halloween Hodgepodge

If you follow me on Instagram, you would see that I got a few gifts from my mom and my cat (I know, I sound crazy) for Halloween. Actually, my mom sends me a little gift and a card every year on Halloween. While I love my birthday, my mom calls Halloween my special day.

This year, my mom (and my cat, can't forget her!) sent me a Halloween pin and hair clips. She also sends me Halloween nail stickers every year. That means its time for another Halloween nail art sticker look!

Makeup Looks: Halloween Smokey Eye

Back in the summer, I posted a nude-toned and orange makeup look on the blog. My bestie, Sara, suggested that the look would be perfect for Halloween too! While I loved the original look because of the subtle nude and the pop of orange, I wanted to make it even more Halloween-y for October. I decided to go for a smokey eye, with a pop of orange, to play off the classic Halloween colors.

The Haunted Mansion

In my last post, I talked about my love for cats and Halloween. Another one of my major loves is Disney. From age 2 through 18, my dad took me to Disney World every other year. It is probably my favorite place on Earth. I have gone back a bunch of times as an adult, and I am just as filled with magic as when I was a kid.

This is not the first time I have done Disney Halloween nail art, last year I took inspiration from The Nightmare Before Christmas and did Sally nail art. This year, I went with of my favorite Disney rides, The Haunted Mansion.

Zombie Cat

It's pretty clear that my favorite holiday is Halloween. And, if you have been following my blog for a while, you'd know that my favorite animals are cats. So if you combine Halloween and cats, that's a winner in my book. Ben's dad knew that when he got me a little zombie kitty figurine for Chanukkah last year.

That little zombie cat has a permanent home on my nail desk. All year long I look at him while I paint my nails, just waiting for Halloween.

Halloween Makeup Looks: Harley Quinn

It is no secret that ever since the trailer for Suicide Squad came out, Harley Quinn has become insanely popular. Of course she had a strong following before then, but it seems like the movie made her more mainstream. I have been keeping this to myself because I didn't want to be cliche, but after seeing Suicide Squad, I fell in love with her too.

This year for Halloween, every girl and her sister will be dressed up as Harley Quinn. Even though I will not be going out as her this year, since lots of other girls (and guys!) will be, I wanted to put together a Harley Quinn makeup look for Halloween.

September 2016 Round Up

The end of September and the start of October has been a whirlwind! If you follow me on Instagram, you would know why. This month has been crazy busy, and full of ups and downs. Ben and I had lots of fun at the Ren Faire, and going out to celebrate his birthday. We also had a second engagement photo session done (photos from that are coming soon). Finally, after months of anticipation, we ran a 5k, which was a blast!

Sadly, at the end of this month, my grandpa passed away at 98 years old. I was very close with him and I am going to miss him so much. As I grew up we had amazing times together filled with lots of laughs and happiness. I am sad to say bye to him, but happy to know that he is finally reunited with my grandma, and they can dance together forever.

Halloween Bouquet

Happy first day of Halloween! For most people Halloween is just on October 31st, but for crazy Halloween people like myself, it goes all October long. To celebrate the first day of Halloween, my dad and I used to shop for new decorations, and decorate the house, and Ben and I are going to be continuing the tradition.

The first day of Halloween also means a month of Halloween looks on the blog! I am starting off with a subtle Halloween nail art look that I have wanted to do for a while.
