Celebration 500 Guest Post - Kirsten from The Geeky Owl

Hi Goddesses

The final Guest Post from Celebration 500 comes from a really dear friend, Kirsten of Geeky Owl.

She's done a smorgasboard of awesome for me - thank you sweetheart, I loves xx :)


Hello All! This is my first ever guest post that I have written! It’s a bit intimidated to do, especially doing one for The Crumpet! I sat and stewed for a while trying to figure out the best mani I could do for The Crumpet. I ended up coming up with two! A serious one and a not so serious mani. :)

This is my serious purple mani for The Crumpet. I used OPI Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI, which is a gorgeous purple crème with orangey/red shimmer. I then did a funky french tip using Milani Purple Gleam. Purple Gleam is a gorgeous glitter jam packed with sparkles!

Here is a swatch of OPI Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI all by its lonesome self.

Here is me showing off the lovely shimmer that accompanies OPI Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI. Isn’t’ this a polish just made for The Crumpet! I think it suits her well!

Alright, now on to my not so serious mani. I had a blast doing this one!  Hahaha!  This is my take on the different blood manis that The Crumpet has done for both her Lostathon and Potterathon weeks! Hahaha! Only The Crumpet could truly get away with a mani that portrays blood as art! Haha! :) Now, mine isn’t such a perfect blood color as The Crumpet’s, because I do not own the best blood color nail polish which is OPI Royal Rajah Ruby. I had
to make do. My base is OPI Skull & Glossbones. I then sponged one a  layer of Nina Ultra Pro in Maple Syrup topped off with Zoya Sooki. I then blotted a little more Maple Syrup for good measure. :)

I had so much fun trying different combinations to get the blood just right!

And I hope you enjoyed my manis of a serious and not so serious nature, because we all know that The Crumpet (bless her heart) is both! :)
