An experiment that works!

I should wait. I know it. I get way too excited about things before they're finished, then I tell everyone and the surprise is ruined. But I'm halfway through the first set of these, and I think I can share my test nail without ruining too much of the surprise. So, humor me, will ya?

Yesterday, my husband and I went walking through a variety of shops- hobby stores, craft stores, etc. I don't know about you, but I absolutely love wandering through a creative-type store, because I never know exactly what's going to catch my eye, or what I'm going to go home with.

Thanks to this wandering I get to show you a preview of my next set of nails. They're for halloween ... they're spooooky monster nails! Be afraid!

Ok, maybe they aren't exactly scary, but they're monsters! Monsters with googly eyes! The nail in the picture is the second to smallest size nail tip, so most have more room for painting and detailing. Thankfully, I've got all sorts going.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I'm enjoying this set. I was painting last night in a room alone, giggling to myself about how silly and cute some of these monsters are. There are no details yet, but personalities are already starting to show. I cannot WAIT to finish this set!

So, what do you think? Have you started thinking about halloween at all? Am I the only one who starts thinking about halloween in August? Talk to me!


  1. I think it looks amazing :D
    I have actually already planned what I am gonna do for Halloween (and we don't even have it in my country) so you are definitely not alone.

  2. Aww, thank you! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one. I've been working like crazy on this set, just because they're so fun that I can't wait to see them finished! They're gonna be tons of fun.

  3. I love the googly eyes! And, your new blog look is adorable. :)

  4. I love those eyes!! It's so cute :)
    I wish I could find those eyes somewhere now

  5. Kimberly- thanks, I've had a lot of fun setting it up.

    chocoaddict- Check out your local hobby store. I got mine at Hobby Lobby. They're not even expensive!
