Having chronic health problems sucks. I completely understand the grind of constant testing, medications, etc and how it can feel like the heaviest bag of groceries you've ever seen. Miss Rose of Manicured & Marvelous has been having a bit of a time lately with that particular bag, and Jessica of Be Happy and Buy Polished (our patron saint of polished sweethearts) decided to rally some folks together and recreate their favorite M&M mani! I am a little behind, but here is mine!
I fell in love with this manicure from the Halloween season. It was gloriously spooky without smacking you over the head with holiday spirit. I vowed to find a bat-stamping plate and re-create it...someday.

I think I did all right. My bats are smaller, and my color is darker...but I kinda don't hate it. I think I might still need those sheer tints. You know, for science. It definitely isn't as flawless as Miss Rose's...but then what is?
Rose is just a lovely young lady. If you haven't checked out her blog, you are missing out. Her nails are lovely, she actually writes words
about polish instead of crazy rants like me, and she is all-around a nice kid. Go take a visit over there and give her a high-five. We all need the recognition once in a while, and she absolutely deserves it.
I NEED to try a pond mani. They give me life. And Rose is one of the most awesome people in nail land!ReplyDelete

So cool that you were able to recreate this one! I love the way it came out, the perfect balance between beauty and spooky <3
I loooooooooooove this and have yet to do a pond mani but you make me wanna go try one right quick!!!ReplyDelete
Wow this turned out great!ReplyDelete
What an awesome tributeReplyDelete
Turned out great. I know the battle with health problems all too well. I'm mostly housebound atm with Lyme disease and get sicker by the day as the aus government doesn't allow treatment for it. I have people doing green #lymeawarenessnails in May to help spread the word about the horrible disease :)ReplyDelete
I love your mani! I think it came out absolutely perfect, and I love how you've all come together to support Rose. You, my friend, are good people. <3ReplyDelete
This turned out perfectly!! I love that you all did this for her.ReplyDelete
Thank you so very much for doing these. I know I already told you all the mushy stuff on IG, but I hearts you lady!ReplyDelete
This is the most fabulous thing ever!ReplyDelete
I perfectly remember that mani from Rose, I totally fell in love with it, too! Your recreation is somewhat gothic, with it being darker, which is totally cool for Halloween!ReplyDelete
Your recreation is great! I also read Rose's blog and her manis are definitely marvellous!ReplyDelete
This is seriously amazing!!!ReplyDelete
