So I'm pretty excited for Disney's Wreck-it-Ralph coming to theaters November 2. A Disney movie about video games? Yes please. :) So after watching a few trailers I decided that for my actual Halloween costume I'm going to be Venelope Von Schweetz! I'm also planning to reuse the costume for opening night at the movies.
While looking around I actually discovered that someone has made a Pintrest board for this costume! http://pinterest.com/brermatt/vanellope-von-schweetz-costume-wreck-it-ralph/ Great ideas on the board, but just looking around online for a sweater everything seemed to be out of my price range so I decided to rely on my good ol neighborhood Goodwill. I also put my own little personal touches on the costume. The next couple of post will be dedicated to how I put together my halloween costume. Almost must apologize since the camera ran out of battery and I took most of these photos with my phone. Hope you enjoy the read regardless.
Candy Cane Nails using The Beauty Department's Tape Trick
Pin Rating: 3
Duration: 30-40 min
- Painters tape
- Wet n Wild White nail polish (.97 cents)
- Wet n Wild Clear Coat (.97 cents)
Remember my red nails from last week? I decided to repurpose them into candy cane nails to go with my costume. So I believe this is my first 3 pin rating. I'm not sure if it was the nail polish, the tape or just my nail polishing skills, but the final results came out a little runny and the lines weren't clean. It's possible that it could have been a little bit of everything but I'm satisfied with the overall results for my Halloween costume.
I cut up tiny strips of painters tape and lined them up where I wanted them on my nails.
Paint the nail with the white nail polish. Wait about a minute and peel off the tape.
And after that touch up and top coat and you're done!
