Halloween Mani

Wanted to do my spin on the old orange and black! I paired a purplish navy with a coral-y peach shimmer shade to lean on the side of feminine rather than scary. The color scheme is definitely still festive but a little more playful. I ran out of nail polish remover so this mani will have to last a while! I have been using these Josie Maran nail wipes (sans acetone) that were a Christmas present so it’s great that they lasted this long! I’ve been missing the cotton ball wet soak of a normal bottle of liquid remover so that will have to be my next beauty purchase.

Halloween Fashion

20131029-083709.jpg

As far as commercial holidays go, I do really enjoy Halloween. I am attracted to all the redhead costumes ever because they just happen to be the best dressed and sexiest. Since I definitely don’t have the build for Jessica Rabbit, I settled on Poison Ivy, my favorite Batman villain. I’m not quite a fan of the ’80s and ’90s animated Poison Ivy but the New Adventures of Batman cartoon series perfected her look. The animation improved tenfold and all the characters were given a darker color scheme and simpler silhouettes. The upside of choosing a costume first is that John gets to match me :). He went all out at our local Goodwill and pieced together a killer Riddler look.

My Halloween costume elements:

-Kelly green satin corset with black velvet ivy-like print that clips together in the front

-Black stretch opera gloves (so frustrated because I couldn’t find a good pair of forest green ones. All the Amazon pairs were $25+ for freaking gloves…)

-Knee-high 3-in snakeskin boots

-Black velvet choker

-Teal tights

-Black booty shorts (for the 2nd party, I wore this pair of black lace panties over the tights channeling Batman himself, lol, because these shorts looked ridiculous)

-Red lipstick!
