I normally love October & all the Halloweeny fun, but this month has been odd to say da least & 2013 can't end soon enuf! I had a mani in mind for today that I was going to do last night, but between Cirrus going after Meyer (again) & fatigue...I'm typing with totally nekkid nails. Blerg. So instead y'all are getting da mani I was going to post on Wednesday. It's a rather long post for me & chock full of pics.
Da line up part 1: Kleancolor Neon Green 17, Neon Purple 16, Neon Orange 19, Black 5, White 4 & Sinful Colors Glow-in-the-Dark plus my largest & 2nd largest dotting tools.
Da line up part 2: Nabi Jade 05, Violet 12 & Beige 08 Glow-in-the-Darks
2 coats of da neons. Da purple has a slight shimmer to it that is nice.
3 coats or undies needed for full opacity with da green.
Da neons under black light.
Hmmm...da orange & green are black light responsive.
These 2 colors would be fun for clubbing or parties!
I added 1 coat of da color coordinating Nabi gitd polishes.
There doesn't seem to be an appreciable difference between just da neons
& adding da Nabi gitds under black light. Hmmm...2 coats of these gitds next time?
Now I'm wondering if my Wake mani glowed under black light cuz of da Mandarin Burst neon or cuz of da Nabi Beige gitd?
Methinks I need to do some more gitd comparisons...
I really wanted me some gitd nails,
so I added a coat of my gitd topper comparison winner by Sinful Colors.
Looky how da Sinful Colors gitd glows with nuclear power under black light!
Now that's how I like it!
Da black light also charged da SC up enuf that when I moved my hand out of da black light (into da sink) I could get a reasonable pic of it with out changing my camera settings. (auto focus & no flash for nails) If you blog & are tired of da photographic gymnastics needed to take pics of gitd polish...you HAVE to get yourself a true black light! Check your local Halloween store this week thru next weekend for possible clearance sales!
Ta da! I used da largest dotter with Black to make da base circles for my goofy eyes. Then I used da 2nd largest dotter with White to make da next layer of circles & dotted over them with da SC gitd so they'd glow too. I added pupils with da small end of 1 of da dotters with Black & finished off with Seche Vite.
Fun, fun, fun!
I love glow-in-the-dark polish & methinks I may need to wear it more often.
Not just in October.
Now for an explanation of Ciri's one flaw:
Ciri is 6 lbs of dang near perfect cat! He's playful, sweet & too cute...except for his obsession with my 7 lb, 17 yr old tabby girl, Frau Meyer.
He just can't leave her alone! His approach is usually playful, but she really doesn't like other cats coming near her & starts to growl da minute she sees him. He then goes from playful to aggressive & zooms in on her all fluffed up & paws a'swinging. Her response is a banshee shriek that I can not only hear from any where in da house but from da porch too & she smacks him hard which only seems to spur him on. She's da equivalent of an 85 year old human lil old lady & deaf to boot. He's equal to a 16 year old human male. We got him neutered, but it only slowed him down for about a day & a half. It's harassment that borders on stalking! Sometimes he does back off with just a verbal warning or even walks by her with out going into hunting mode, but last night he cornered her in our bathroom & by da time me & Mr Inky got there da brown fur was literally wafting about in lil tumble weeds. I grabbed her while Mr Inky chewed out Ciri. Thankfully no physical damage was done to either cat & Meyer started purring as soon as I picked her up cuz I'm her safe place. However, once Mr Inky had gone to bed, Ciri went looking for Meyer. She tried to make a dash under a table, but I scooped her up so fast & tucked her in next to me in my chair that he didn't find her for a minute or 2. At that point I was ready to lock him in a box or something to keep him away from her. So I fed her in da powder room while holding da door closed (most of our interior doors don't latch properly) then put her in da laundry room (this door does shut tight) with a clean litter box, water & a blanket near the heating vent. She wasn't thrilled, but she does understand that this is for her protection, not a punishment. Ciri plastered his furry self to da floor in front of da door when he realized he couldn't open it like he can da powder room.
It was a quiet night...at least until Mr Inky forgot to turn off da house alarm on his way to work. I got to da panel with seconds to spare. Not my fav way to start da day.
He's not like this with da other 3 cats we have & he wasn't like this with my mom's kittens last week. We don't know why he's fixated on her & just hope he out grows it cuz keeping them separate is a pita. He's still a cute lil critter tho...
What? I'se a Kitler & I rules da house...deal wif it!
Thanks for stopping by!
