Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

I love it when I have good days with the kids. I get home and feel so high that they actually learnt something today. I know they learn things most days...but it's just so nice when you can actually see their learning/progress.

Anyway on to Halloween nails... mine are very subtle. China Glaze Lets Do It In 3D with two cute little bat stickers I got in one of the Color Club mini sets. Subtle yet was finally sunny today. I was out on lunch duty so I really wanted to wear a nice holo!

China Glaze Lets Do It In 3D
Mmmm....holo deliciousness.

I saw today that nihrida posted a self portrait for the 30 day drawing challenge. I'm not big on nail art, so wasn't too keen to get on board with the nail challenge...but a drawing challenge, that's something I want to try! As I just decided I wanted in on this challenge today... I may have to spend all night drawing and scribbling out my drawings... So hopefully I'll have something to show later today or tomorrow.

The challenge as posted on nihrida
In other news my giveaway closes on the 31st... Yeah it's that time already in New Zealand, but it'll close at 11:59pm 31st of October PDT. If you haven't entered and want to click here.

Right, I'm off to eat left overs, make Nick lunch for the next few days, watch 16 and Pregnant and draw a picture of myself!

Why my credit card should be taken off me...

I realised over the last two months a number of polishes have magically found their way into my sticky little hands. That magical little plastic card has assisted and fueled my addiction. It's time to come clean...

I'm addicted to shopping online.

Nail Prisms: Star Opal 18

The Nail Prism of the day today is Star Opal 18. Star Opal is a more neutral laid back kind of prism.

Star Opal 18

Despite being a little more laid back in tone Star Opal isn't laid back in duo-chrome. Look at the pretty pinks and golds this neutral flashes.

Lush Goodies

Ok I admit it I'm addicted to collecting things... Nail polish, books, blurays, markers, Disney Christmas ornaments, lipstick, eyeshadow... gotta get them all! Another of my addictions is Lush.

Oh how I love Lush. As far as I know I've always loved Lush. I'm sure it started as a teenager when I discovered the Lush shop in the Old Bank Arcade... The smell lured me... and then I discovered the online shop.
My favourite Lush time of the year is when they release the new Christmas products. I love Christmas. I start planning Christmas as soon as Halloween things hit the shops. Anyway I've been waiting for this years Lush Christmas goodies to hit the NZ online store... and last weekend they did!

I needed to order a few gifts for friends and family...for Christmas presents... So I ordered myself some goodies as well!

My Lush haulies!
Glogg and Snow Fairy. Two very different and must have shower gels. Snow Fairy is the epitome of girly scents, everything sweet, pink and glittery. Whilst Glogg is awesome spiced wine, perfect for winter. Nicks favourite is the Snow Fairy...
Candy Cane soap is a new product for this year...omg it smells just like peppermint candy  canes...sweet yet minty. Delicious.
Snowcake soap is an old favourite of mine. Sweet almond icing soap for your hands. The gold is a nice touch this year.  
The Melting Snowman was too cute to pass up. He's a bubble bar...I don't know if I can use him though...he really is too cute.

The Jilted Elf shower jelly is such a bright awesome green with gold shimmer. Enlarge the picture and you'll see! I'm awful at describing scents but the Jilted Elf is a great fresh wake you up scent.

Snow Fairy lip tint...bright pink and smells like Snow also good for your lips...count me in!
I also picked up some non Christmas related items.

Twilight and Ghost, Halloween themed shower gels. 
Angels on Bare Skin my favourite daily cleanser.
Dark Angels an awesome cleanser I use about twice a week. It's a little odd putting dark black cleanser on to your face to clean it... I use Dark Angels, wash it off and then use Angels on Bare Skin. This normally gets rid of all the black marks! If that hasn't gotten rid of everything I use Tea Tree Water toner to clean the rest.
And a bonus...I didn't get this yesterday. But check out last years Angels Delight soap. Iridescent flakies and glittery stars...I'm feeling inspired for a mani!

Angels Delight soap 2010. This years soap is different in colour.
I also tidied up my Lush stash... yup I'm a hoarder...
