Vintage Vampire, Abstract Cobweb and Frankenstein's Monster Halloween Nail Art!

It's nearly October and you know what that means!  Yep!  Trying to invent some kind of halloween nail art that no one has ever done before.  Great.

I think that's pretty much impossible, for me anyways, so instead I did my versions of vampire, zombie/frankenstein and spider nails.  They range from easy to advanced in skill level and showcase different nail shapes too as I've been enjoying almond shaped nails recently.

Illamasqua Melange - Swatch and Review

It's a long time since I've done a swatch post here on my blog so when Illamasqua sent me their latest from the new 'Once' collection I couldn't resist sharing with you.
Once is a vintage inspired collection with a 'modern vital spirit' and includes a beautiful jade green polish named Melange.

I would describe it as a dusky jade green filled with foiled flecks of gold and copper that shine like embers in the sunlight.

Melange applies in 2 easy coats, and all the photos are without topcoat. You can find the collection at (they have free UK shipping).
