Hallowe'en nails 3

I have no original thought when it comes to manicures so I copied this idea from t’internet. I’m not into anything super-scary so I thought this was Hallowe’en appropriate, but also cute.

(And easy!)

Hallowe'en nails

I used Revlon No. 999 in Blackest Black, and Barry M nail art pens in black and white. I roped my boyfriend in to do the eyes. We were going to do a pair of eyes on each hand but the pressure was too much for him so we stopped after one…! :-p

Friday night and it was time to pour it up

So, I confess that for Hallowe’en I totally considered going as Miley Cyrus because, like, lol. But problem a.)

Paris Hilton (and half the known world) had the same idea.

Problem b.) I hate spending money on Hallowe’en costumes and the only way to avoid that would be to wear a different one of her looks and…

Problem c.) I am not going out in public wearing nothing but flesh coloured underwear and a foam finger.

So, no then…

But all is not lost. While rooting through my cupboard I found these shorts that I bought for the summer but then never wore because they ride so far up my extremities that they really should have bought me dinner first. Not ideal for a day at the beach. Anyway, thanks to their itty bittyness and grungy camo print, they had become known as my Rihanna shorts. And that is why I decided to go dressed as everyone’s favourite bad gal this year.

I didn’t want to do a specific look of hers as, once again, that would probably involve buying a costume. So I decided to abide by the spirit of Rihanna, if not the letter of Rihanna (ie. look generally badass and scantily clad). All I needed to buy was a pen for her tattoos (my friend suggested I use a sharpie and wash it off with vodka but given that she hasn’t actually ever done that herself, she just “thinks” it will come off, I decided against…), some blonde hair dye spray and some massive hoops.

I ended up with red hair dye spray as apparently blonde doesn’t exist (fortunately Rihanna has had every possible hair colour/style) and as I couldn’t find a tattoo pen, my friend did the tattoos using a combination of liquid and pencil eyeliner, which stayed on all night. (I was amazed, I swear that never happens when I actually wear it on my eyes! And I got loads of compliments on them from people who thought they were real.) I also bought Revlon Black Cherry lipstick, which I figure I’ll wear all winter and I found big gold “Bad” hoops in Claire’s Accessories, which are insanely tacky but I kind of love.

This is how I found my earrings when I came home late one night, a couple of months ago….Standing up….and I’m sure I didn’t leave them like that….

Oh how I love a theme! Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, World Migratory Bird Day, you name it, I have an outfit for it. However, these days I have a desk job that doesn’t allow me to turn up in full Morticia mode on Hallowe’en (*sigh*) so I have had to content myself with vaguely spooky jewellery and a red and black glittery manicure instead.
