Fall Festivities

A quick half moon using China Glaze's Halloween collection from last year. Overall, I find this to be more fall-y than Halloween-y. However for a true fall feel, I would probably change the purple for a red or gold glitter.... 



China Glaze in Ick-A-Bod-Y
China Glaze in Mummy May I
China Glaze in Zombie Zest
Milani in Black magic



You all might remember the unfortunate peeling incident with the swirls and glitter mani. I thought it might be due to the base coat (orly's Top2Bottom) not adhering well with glitter polish, so I tried it with this mani. Not peeling occurred. In fact this mani lasted almost a week with very little tip wear.

The peeling event was very bizarre. I'll keep on it and let you guys know if it happens again. Maybe certain brands just don't mesh well with Orly?

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate the Holiday. I know I am looking forward to tasty turkey and mac and cheese!!

Until next time ^_^
