October - more than just Halloween!

Most people associate October with Breast Cancer Awareness and Halloween. October is also National Infant Loss and Preemie month. This has touched me personally, as my nephew was born 3 months early -- weighing only 1.10 lb. Moreover, I have a dear friend whose son was called home before his 2nd birthday.
 The base is Zoya's "Dot," and on all but the ring fingers, I used a sponge to add some blue (Dermalect "Above It"). The clouds were stamped with Bundle Monster stamp #BM312, and the ribbon is double-stamped with #BM321.

Hehe stamping plates

I won some new stamps on Listia, and here's my first mani from them:
The stamp is #Hehe006. These are my first Hehe stamps, and I really like them! My base is Indigo Bananas "Taffeta, Darling?" After I stamped the images, I colored them in with OPI Color Paints.

Halloween Contest Nails

We had a Halloween nail art contest at my school, and I won first place :)
I was so thrilled that the idea in my head transformed into nails! With the exception of the werewolf, all the nails were painted with a blue gradient, and then stamped with a variety of stamps for the trees, housing, etc. I free-handed the moon, adding a few different shades of yellow and some white to create dimension. Lastly, I used Bundle Monster acrylic molds to create the 3D bats. 
Lastly, the werewolf.....yes, it's real hair. Cat hair. Complements of Pink - who purred away while I gently trimmed some of his hair.
I glued the hair on, and then applied the eyes, nose and teeth that I created from acrylic. 

I really like how these turned out. What do you think?
