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.

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.
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?
