Back in early Summer this year I was keen on getting my hands on the Essie "neon" collection, but then did not find the time to really wear them. But who says you can wear neon polishes only during summer? They also make for a perfect slime/paint drip manicure for Halloween!

I have another Halloween-ish manicure for you! I have seen quite a few crime scene nails like this before, but never did some myself, because my free-hand skills aren't the best.
Being a blogger for a little over three years, it is about time to step up my nail art game. I feel like I owe that to you, my fellow readers. But I am not only doing this for you, but also to see myself evolve, so one day I will be able to look back and see the improvements I have made. Even though my free-hand designs are nowhere near perfect, I will share them with you anyway. That way you see that nail bloggers aren't perfect and their (or at least my) manicures are a fail from time to time.

Halloween is less than a week away. Do you already have plans for that day? It is not a big thing over here, so I won't be attending a party or such. Still I like to get a bit spooky on my nails to get me in the Trick or Treat mood. If you are still looking for Halloween nail art inspiration, here is a little watermarble and black cat design for you.

I have a little treat for you today! I was recently contacted by the PR of Mont Bleu if I'd like to give away a 3-piece set of their nail files. I agreed to run that giveaway, because you my fellow readers really need to try their glass files! I reviewed a few of their products here.
Ever since I started painting my nails I have been using nothing but crystal nail files. Unlike emery board or metal files, these will not damage your nails and they will last you forever (unless you drop them on tile floor - RIP little OPI crystal file).
Mont Bleu is a Czech Republic based company that seriously makes some of the best glass nail files I have ever tried! I have one of their standard size files at home and always carry one of their travel nail files in my purse - you never know when you tear a nail, so it is good to keep a file handy.
a Rafflecopter giveaway
I will draw the winner on November 1, 2014. Afterwards, I will provide Mont Bleu with the winner's e-mail address. There are four color variants to choose from (Black, Orange, Gold and Lilac). The company will contact you and arrange shipping of your prize. Open internationally.

Every year I wish Halloween was a big thing here in Germany, too. There is something about spooky decorations, Halloween candy and trick or treating that I really like. And of course I adore everything pumpkin! So I cannot help it, but I also have to wear something Halloween-ish on my nails, too. If you are looking for some nail art inspiration or simply enjoy spooky nail designs, check out some of the Halloween manicures I have done since I started this blog!
