Halloween 2013: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Hey guys,

Happy Halloween.
So fun fact I used to be obsessed with the Nightmare Before Christmas back when I was in Grade 1... so I was 5/6 I honestly don't think I've seen it since. Not sure why, maybe I'm worried I won't love it like I used to? I dunno
Anyways this Halloween I'm being Rainbow Dash! so stay tuned for a Dashie themed manicure. 

For Halloween this year I did a Jack Skellington/Zero manicure.

October Julep Maven Box

Hey guys,

So skip on past the jump for MORE Rebel Set!

Villains: Scar

Hey guys,

Wow so we have come to the end of Heroes and Villains, seems like just yesterday I was talking to Melissa about attempting to do this. Before that I would have never attempted to do faces like these. Really it can only get better from here!

I wanted to end on another fave villain of mine. Scar, the Lion King is genius. And Scar is the perfect villain. I know so many people who live in the shadow of their siblings (granted they don't resort to killing said siblings... at least not yet anyways) so I think it's easy to sympathize a bit with Scar. Maybe it's just me.

Villains: Cruella de Vil

Hey guys,

So this is actually the second Cruella manicure I did for this, I did her first then started doing the faces of everyone and realized I couldn't have Cruella be the only villain without a face. Even though it was unmistakeably her.

Cruella will ALWAYS remind me of my Auntie Pat (saying Auntie as a 24 year old sounds so weird but whatever) one year when I was young she dressed as Cruella for Halloween and it was AMAZING so this one is for her.

Cruella de Vil!

Villains: Captain Hook

Hey guys,

Off the bat I'm going to dedicate this to my cousin Jess, Peter Pan is her favourite Disney movie. I also recently talked her into starting to watch Once Upon a Time since she is currently a video game widow, I'm seriously enjoying the random OMG! texts I'm getting from her.

That white fluffy thing is supposed to be his feather from his hat in case you were wondering.

Captain Hook!

Villains: Jafar

Hey guys,

So I've spoke of my love for Disney villains and I think I really want my next tattoo to be a Disney villain piece. Ideally I'd like to include Scar, Hades and Maleficent but we'll see. I've seen some epic pieces online since I've been thinking about this, but first things first I need to finish my leg sleeve. My brain works faster than I can save money for this.

You'll notice I had to use my pinky for his goatee since I ran out of room. Whoops haha. Also if you're wondering what it says on my hand it's "rip Mmmbop" I won't get started on my Hanson obsession because I won't stop.

Villains: Doctor Facilier

Hey guys,

So I feel like a lot of people have skipped watching The Princess and the Frog since it is a newer Princess movie and I think a lot of people look down on the newer Disney movies. It really was not that long ago that Ariel and Belle were new characters (okay so 20 years is kind of a while ago but STILL)

Anyways aside from that I think Doctor Facilier aka The Shadow Man is one of the creepiest new villains Disney has come up with like even freaks me out creepy. I think this turned out great though.

Villains: Ursula

Hey guys,

The Little Mermaid is a total classic. Ursula is a fantastic villain, and I honestly can't even look at a picture of her without hearing "Body Language" in my brain which makes me laugh.

I needed to add some more black to the bottom of her face to round out her chin because she looks kinda skinny and we ALL know that Ursula is all about curves!

Villains: Evil Queen

Hey guys,

Snow White is NOT my favourite movie, I find her to be the whiniest most awful Princess of all. That being said a lot of the new incarnations of Snow White have been pretty great so I will give them that.

The Evil Queen however is classic, pure malice and evil, quite like Maleficent. This was clearly before Disney began infusing some humor into their villains.

The Evil Queen!

Villains: Maleficent

Hey guys,

Sleeping Beauty is one of my fave Disney movies. Obviously since I named my dog Briar Rose.
With that Maleficent has got to be the scariest Disney villain PERIOD. She still freaks me out, I can't even go near our fireplace after watching Sleeping Beauty. There is no balance of funny with her, she is regal and evil.

That being said I really hate the way this turned out, I am not NEARLY good enough of an artist to capture that evil glint in her eye. Sorry Maleficent, I let you down.

Villains: Hades

Hey guys,

So if you've hung around here for a while by now you know how huge of a Disney fan I am.
And I LOVE Disney villains, they have inspired so many conversations between me and my friends and family. When in doubt Disney always makes me feel better.

Let's kick off this short run of Disney Villains off with one of my ALL time favourite Disney villains... Hades. I love Hades I think he is the perfect balance of funny and evil which is a balance Disney does so well. My cousin actually said that when she thinks of Hades she thinks of me, which makes me laugh.

Villains: The Joker

Hey guys,

Well today I have the last comic book type villain for you guys then starting tomorrow I have a smaller string of Villain manicures that I was so excited for I posted a crap-ton of them to instagram. I just couldn't help myself so if you follow me on there you'll know whats coming. 

So I didn't even want to dry and attempt Heath's famous Joker face (the whole Heath Ledger thing still really breaks my heart) that being said here is some classic creepy Joker.

The Joker!

Villains: Pyro

Hey guys,

So last night my company held a fundraiser for the ADF (Alberta Diabetes Foundation) and we managed to raise $810 dollars by selling drink tickets and having a small silent auction, I was pretty impressed with us because I felt like it was myself and two of my coworkers (okay mostly them... lets be honest I was just the girl who held all the money) who were begging guys for money (I think only 2 women who were not coworkers bought tickets)

I love Pyro in the X-men movies, I think because I have always been slightly fascinated by fire, more-so when I was younger I have gotten away from that lately... actually I'm officially making a mental note to buy candles. Anyways this is inspired by the comic book Pyro.

Villains: Two Face

Hey guys,

Yay I can officially spend money again! (even though I shouldn't) You can bet I'm heading out to buy Pacific Rim so I can drool all over Charlie Hunnam (speaking of - 10000 points to Gryffindor for him backing out of 50 Shades of Grey) and Rob Kazinsky (still mad about the ending of True Blood, just saying)

So I LOVE the way this turned out. The mate topcoat made it hard to photograph but I really think it worked fabulously.

Two Face!

Villains: General Zod

Hey guys,

Alright one more day of not spending money, I can do this right? In other news my untrieds pile is HUGE. I don't see it shrinking either I'm super excited about so many winter/fall collections this year which I have been fairly blah about during the summer. Guess I'm just totally a fall/winter.

Anyways, General Zod, he's just a class A jerk of a bad guy. Considering how much I love Superman it makes sense why I would hate this guy. Just saying.

General Zod!

Villains: Bane

Hey guys,

So it's been one of those weeks where you know spending money is a bad idea (yet I seem to do it anyways) I so badly want to go see a movie but know I shouldn't, so I am remedying this by putting on my dragon Kigurumi and my cowboy boot slippers (this is a surefire way that I will not leave the house) so here's hoping this is going to work for the rest of the week.

Okay so I confess that while I LOVE Tom Hardy I STILL haven't seen the last Dark Knight movie. I need to get on that since Tom is such a hottie. I'll put it on my to-do list. Here's comic book Bane.

Villains: Scarecrow

Hey guys,

So Scarecrow is actually super freaky.. Of course his freakiness doesn't really translate to the nail.
Actually Scarecrows in general are pretty creepy, and the more that I think about it the more it's weirding me out. So yup this is going to be short and sweet because I need to go look at pictures of puppies and kittens now.

Villains: Darth Vader (and bonus Storm Trooper!)

Hey guys,

Well I hope everyone is having a great holiday Monday, assuming of course you have it off. 
Yesterday my friend and I did a fun little photo shoot at the barn with my boys. Okay it wasn't exactly fun, I spent the whole time wrestling with Breezer who refused to cooperate yet managed to look adorable in ALL his pictures. 

I love Darth Vader. I mostly think he's just really misunderstood and at key times in his life people didn't know how to handle him and it just pushed him off the edge.

Darth Vader! (and bonus Storm Trooper!)
