31dc2012 - day 29

Reader beware, you're in for a scare!

...Not really. But you're in for Day 29 of the 31 Day Challenge - Inspired By The Supernatural.

The theme for today is pretty dull and difficult to come up with ideas for.
I decided to do nails inspired by Goosebumps!

Why Goosebumps? Well... One reason, and one reason only.


Ermahgerd Gerseberms!!!!
Not gonna lie, I get way too much enjoyment out of the Ermahgerd meme.


Memes aside, these nails are fun!
I love drippy nails and the bright colors really make it pop.
I remember watching Goosebumps as a kid and being totally creeped out by the goo dripping down the screen (and let's not talk about how much the show itself creeped me out.)


I did this manicure with two polishes from Color Club - Twiggie & Express Yourself.
Unfortunately my photos aren't really showing these colors accurately - the purple is much less blue and the green is less minty and more bright.
For an idea of what Express Yourself really looks like, check out my swatches of the Pride Collection.
I just was not in the mood to take 1,000,000 photos of this manicure tonight to try to get the colors right! (Plus I wouldn't have the time - I'm late posting again, I know!)


Wearing these nails makes me wanna do more drippy nails. The effect is really cool. They look better in person, too, because you can't see all the flaws like you can in pictures.
I'm pleased with this mani despite not liking this day of the challenge.

Just two more days left! It will be weird to go back to regular posting... Haha!

  2. This is really good Rebecca!

    Great job!

    I can really relate to not wanting to take 100,000 pictures! Much less ten times that!

  3. Love this manicure! The combination of purple + green is so striking. Also: I'm terrible for abusing the "ERMAHGERD" meme. I've been doing it a lot lately. Random example: at the grocery store, sees display of fall gourds... "ERMAHGOURD". I'm a dork.
