Morning!

Sorry for the late start you guys! My friend Sarah, my boyfriend and I made sooooo much good food last night. We had my beef tips with rice and pan gravy, which is my boyfriends’s favorite thing that I make. ANNnnnnd acorn squash fritters (recipe coming soon!!).

*drools*

And I may have had a pretty potent adult beverage with FRICKEN’ PUMPKIN PIE FLAVORED VODKA!!! :-D This combination of awesome-sauce made me a weeeee bit sleepy. And I may have passed out before doing my Day 8 metallic nails for the 31 Day Challenge 2012. Oopsies! ;)

So what kind of manicure can I do that takes a short amount of time, but with awesome results? A splatter mani, that’s what!! :-D I don’t think I’ve done one of these since the first one I did last year during the challenge, but I always love the end results. ^_^

Nail Polishes I Used:
A England Camelot
Barry M Gold Foil Effects
Barry M Silver Foil Effects
Essie Penny Talk

I topped everything off with a coat of Gelous and China Glaze Fast Forward top coat. Then I added Butter London Matte Finish top coat. I absolutely looove how this looks mattified! ^_^

Here’s a few photos of it before I added the matte top coat. I love it this way too!

There’s a reason why I rarely do splatter manicures, they are messy as @*%#!! :-P Even though I taped around my fingers I still had a heck of a cleanup job to deal with to get all of the nail polish out of my cuticles. The things we do for glorious nails, hehe. -_-

And here’s a snapshot of my “canvas”. It looks like King Midas has an upper respiratory infection. ;)


That’s it for today everyone! The Guild Wars 2 Shadow of the Mad King Halloween Event started yesterday so that’s where you’ll find me today! Oh, and swatching the OPI Skyfall collection if I can drag myself away from my desktop. ;)

Don’t forget to check out  Sam and Cris’s blogs to see their Day 8 metallic nails (though I think Cris is running late like me today, haha)!
