Pink Leopard Halloween Nails!

Hey guys!

On Friday I went to my first Halloween party of the year. I've been a bunny for the past 5 years in a row, so this Halloween I *had* to switch it up. But I've never put too much effort into my costumes, so I went on a search for some ears that I could wear with a simple dress that I already own. I wanted to be a kitty originally, but then I found some AWESOME pink leopard ears at Claire's that came with a cute tail. The best part? Only 5 bucks! And Claire's was the second store I stopped at, so finding my costume was super easy!

I paired the ears with a thin-strap black dress and black knee-high black boots with heels. I wish I had a picture of the whole outfit, because I thought it looked really cute even despite it being simple. The best accessory were my nails. I painted them to match the ears and they really stood out with my black dress. I got a lot of compliments all night!

I started with a base of two coats of Zoya Shelby, a cool baby pink. Then I used a brush to paint on blobs of KBShimmer Don't Pink Twice, an awesome neon hot pink that dries to a semi-matte finish. Lastly, I used a brush and OPI Black Onyx to finalize the leopard print. I added KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish it all off, and voila! Cute pink leopard nails that matched perfectly with my outfit. I really love the final result! 



Does anyone have any fun costume ideas for this week? And will you be polishing your nails to match?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a lovely day! =)
