Sally Hansen Nail Effects Ghoulie Girl


Sally Hansen Nail Effects Ghoulie Girl
I just loved this manicure. I find SH Nail Effects to be relatively easy to apply (and because my nails are so small and short, I can get at least 3 manis out of one pack!) and they have such a great payoff. I had this manicure on for over a week without any of the stickers coming off. I got tons of compliments on it... including one from a woman who worked at my local independent fabric store who thought it was "crackle". (She realized it was ghosts when she looked closer.)

I feel so guilty for not posting as much as I did (or, umm, more than once a month?) in the last year or so. Truth is, I had kind of hit a nail polish low point in my life -- I had on so many NOTDs for awhile that I just didn't care for and nothing seemed to make me smile. But I think I'm getting back on track. I haven't been swatching all that much but I have been photographing my NOTDs and several of them have made me very happy (including this one). 

In the meanwhile, school is in full swing, both my eyes have been LASIK'ed (and OMG, I CAN SEE), and I'm currently in Seattle for a conference. If nothing goes wrong, I MAY have an article accepted for publication (really crossing my fingers!)... but I'm not sure because who knows what side the editor may come down on with that decision. I've been feeling pretty down about various things in the last few months and the approach of winter does not help. :(

The ghosts are so cute! I'm wearing Hot Wire right now & I just don't want to take them off. A week has gone by & they still look wonderful! & Yay for Lasik! How was your experience? I'm considering that in the future, but for now I'm a scaredy cat.d

Wow love this mani! I love the idea of nail effects, because I would never be able to paint this design on by myself.
Good luck on getting published!!

I love this! So many of the Salon Effects look super cute but I can't bring myself to spend the money on them since I'd only wear them once and I change my polish so often. Maybe someday I'll cave. Good luck w/ publication!

Love those nails. Just too cute. I'd love to have Lasik surgery. I don't know if I'd ever do it but it would be nice. Hope you get your paper published. Let us know. You should be so proud of yourself. It gets hard to feel upbeat during this time of year. I have a tough time during the Winter.

Wow, that is the cutest design I've ever seen! :-)

Even having an article considered for publication is a big deal, so congrats! I hope your mood picks up, even with the dismal winter. At least your nails looked great :)
