A little bit of lace with some blackened amethyst.

*Purchased*
Hello Lovelies!
   Welcome back to another installment of Mani Monday and MOAR drunk stamping. I swear that I will eventually get this stamping deal down however I still haven't quite perfected my technique. So while I am struggling you can feel better about your own nails. ^_~

 The struggle is real and especially worse with stamping...


    The holidays are gearing up with Thanksgiving this coming Thursday. Mr Dreadful is off for a week and I have to get my holiday back on to visit my parents. We take the Dreadful horde over to their house and celebrate Thanksgiving there and then celebrate Christmas here.  However like from my previous post, I am HATE the holiday shopping ordeal.


See that vacant look...not happening


Yup totally staying home...

  Mr Dreadful is hoping to snag some Black Friday deals and that is ALL him. I am staying home away from people and working on my manicure and stamping. I may even do a makeup look or two. But I am not going ANYWHERE near a store.
That is right Godzilla, fuck that shit..


I will however hit the web for some awesome Cyber Monday deals cause some are just too good to pass up. But enough chattering about the holidays and on with the thing that you came here for..NAILS!

You can even see the epic Holo through my craptacular stamping!


I used the following products for this manicure
Opi Strengthening Base Coat
Vapid Lacquer's Blackened Amethyst
Gothic Gala Lacquers Basic White Stamping Polish
Born Pretty Chic Lace Stamping Plate BP-02  (Use Discount Code KLH10 for a discount off your purchase and free shipping)
Vapid Lacquer's Fast Drying Top Coat

   This was my first time using the Born Pretty Stamping Plates and I was extremely pleased with how well they stamped. There will be a review on them coming up in the near future after I survive the holidays. If you are wanting to pick up Blackened Amethyst from Vapid Lacquer you can do so here. You can also follow her on Facebook, on her Facebook Fan Group, and even on Instagram. I hope that you enjoyed this version of Mani Monday! Until next time lovelies...

MOAR Spots but this time they are Morbid...

*Purchased*
Hello Lovelies!
    I am feeling horribly run down with the recent influx of the plague in the Dreadful household. All I really want to do right now is sleep and avoid the holiday season all together since it caught me COMPLETELY off guard. Originally I thought that I was going to be done by October for all the holiday shopping however I was derailed due to wedding planning. Then I figured I could go ahead and start now and head out and shop for presents instead of doing a mad dash.

Yeah, that was a BIG mistake


Then I remembered why I hate the holiday season with the crowds and all of the people.

I worked retail for years so it turned me into this...


It makes me want to run back to the house and hide away and do makeup with minimal human interaction

Let me hide away in my cave with my makeup.


 Which resulted in this spotted look...

I used the following products for this look
Lunatick Cosmetic Labs Primer
Notoriously Morbid's (NM) Nudist
NM Sheanimonkey
NM Mint to Die For
NM Jupiter Rain
NM Seek Not Revenge
NM Book of Shadows
NM Bad Trinity
NM Belle's Bounty
Jo Jo Lashes from Oh My Lash
Wolfe FX Essential Palette for the spots

   However I will admit that I do like the holidays just not so much the hustle of the season. I do have some feelings. ^_~


  If you are interested in purchasing any of the colors used for this look you can do so here. You can also follow Notoriously Morbid on Facebook, their Facebook Fan Page and on Instagram. So until next time lovelies, stay warm and avoid the holiday crowds!

A spot here and more spots there.. and did I mention spots?

*Press*
Hello Lovelies!
   I am back today with another eye of the day (eotd) this time from BeautyBarBaby. I am been feeling a little meh with my makeup looks recently. I don't know about you, I get into a funk and I think that all of my looks are kind of meh. In order to try to shake things up a littler, I decided to do a SUPER colorful look.



I wanted something as colorful as a rainbow but I didn't want to look like it threw up on me...

So I pulled out a handful of the brightest colors I could find...


I want that color and that one and that....

And when the colors weren't enough, I figured I would add SPOTS!


I haven't never seen one however I will admit that this spotted elephant is pretty darn cute
So this is what I came up with..



I used the following products for this look
Lunatick Cosmetic Labs Primer
BeautyBarBaby's (BBB) Cream & Sugar
BBB Happiness
BBB That's Really Bananas!
BBB Stinger
BBB Bordello
BBB Raven
BBB Cathouse
BBB Mountain Dewy
BBB Tantalizing
Jo Jo lashes from Oh My Lash
And spots are done with Wolfe FX Essential Palette

   I hope that you enjoyed this look today and if you are interested in purchasing BeautyBarBaby products you can find them here on Etsy. You can also follow them on Facebook, their Facebook Fangroup, Instagram and Twitter. Until next time lovelies!

Freezing winds, swirly stars and MOAR Drunk Stamping!

*Purchased*
Hello Lovelies!
    I am back today with a late Mani Monday post! I am sorry that I am posting so late however recently one of my little Dreadfuls came home from school with the flu so any particular kind of schedule I had is gone when little ones are sick. However, he is feeling much better now. He is not up to 100% however he is much better than he was.  But I did manage to sneak in a mani since he is feeling better. But I will warn you that my cuticles are a HOT MESS! The cold weather just wrecks my hands.
Yup that is me, attempting to warm my hands...

 I know that some of you, who have read my about me section are going.. What? Wait, Dreadful aren't you in Florida?!?! Yes, yes I am however I am a big baby when it comes to being cold.

These freezing metal heads are not amused with my cry baby antics about the cold.
  To give me some credit, it has been colder here the past two years than it has been for most. ..
That is almost unheard of.. so you know my butt is cold

I feel like this constantly...


And I am constantly searching out warmth...


 However....

They are surfing in this kind of weather in Death Metal makeup while I think that I am going to die..

But enough of my bitching about the cold on with the nail pics!




 I used:
  Opi Strengthening Base Coat
  Gothic Gala Lacquers Njord
  Gothic Gala Lacquers Metallic Blue Stamping Polish
  Bundle Monster Stamping plate BM -021
  Vapid Lacquer Fast Drying Top Coat

   I still haven't mastered stamping since my stamps are still faint compared to other people's stamps using the same polish. I haven't figured out if it is the amount of stamping polish I am using or if my stamper just sucks. Either way I hope that you enjoyed this Mani Monday post! If you are dying for this polish you can pick it up here. You can follow Gothic Gala Lacquer on Facebook, Instagram and on the Facebook Fan Page. Until next time lovelies, I am off to stay warm!!
Wait, was that a white walker outside my door?

A Doll and A Dame look Smashing in a Bordello


*Press*
Hello Lovelies,

There is also a gorgeous neutral set that I have my eye on but that will have to be for next time. When I hear the world Pinup it just makes me think of the ultimate sexiness and these shadows are NO exception.

And nothing screams sexy like Dita Von Teese.
I essentially started with the red, since I have a weakness for red shadows.

Red is SUPER SEXY




I used the following items for this look:
BeautyBarBaby (BBB) Cream & Sugar
BBB Broad (Pinup Collection)
BBB Doll (Pinup Collection)
BBB Dame (Pinup Collection)
BBB Striptease
BBB Raven
BBB Red Fairy Dust (in the inner corner)
Born Pretty's 15 Piece Pink Brush set (used code KLH10 for a discount)

Then I had to do a purple look since purple is another one of my favorites.....



I used the following items for this look:
BeautyBarBaby (BBB) Miss Daisy
BBB Bordello (Pinup Collection)
BBB Brothel (Pinup Collection)
BBB Cathouse (Pinup Collection)


Do you have a favorite out of the new Pinup Collection that you must have? Or do you need the whole collection like I do?

Mani Monday:When Stars Fell During the South Haven Sunset with a hint of Drunk Stamping

Hello Lovelies,
    I am back and feeling much better for this weekly installment of Mani Monday and of course some MOAR drunk stamping. It has been far to long since I last attempted to stamp and I wanted to do something today that made me bust out the stamper.

Stamping makes me feel fabulous and sassy!

  Surprisingly enough, my stamping wasn't as bad as I thought that it would be and the  Gothic Gala Laquer's Stamping polish in Antique Gold over Carpe Noctem Cosmetic's South Haven was a nice and subtle look which you could get away with in a conservative work place.


I was glowing with delight that my stamper didn't betray me.
 I wanted to do something fall/winter inspired without using the traditional colors and stamps without being too traditional. But just take a look and tell me what you think!

Sadly, my nails broke the day before I did this mani, Isn't it always the case?

I was trying to capture the duo chrome effect of South Haven Sunset

Apparently it is still going to take a while for me to get this stamping thing down.
I used the following polishes for this look:
Opi Nail Strengthening Base Coat
Carpe Noctem Cosmetics South Haven Sunset
Gothic Gala Lacquers Antique Gold Stamping Polish
Vapid Lacquers Fast Drying Top Coat
Bundle Monster Stamping Plate BM-021

  While I know that the stamping isn't perfect and didn't cover the entire nail in the last photo I was pretty pleased with how this look turned out. I felt pretty damn fabulous.

Yup this is how I felt about my nails.

You can follow Carpe Noctem Cosmetics on Facebook, in the Facebook Fangroup and on Instagram. You can also follow Gothic Gala Lacquerson Facebook, in her Facebook Fangoup and on Instagram as well. And finally last but not least, you can also follow Vapid Lacquer on Facebook, in her Facebook Fangroup and also on Instagram. I hope that you liked today's installment of Mani Monday (with a hint of drunk stamping) and tell me what is your current favorite mani color for the season?
