Paisley Nails + My Halloween Costume

Disclaimer: The water decals were purchased by me.
Today I have a simple monochromatic manicure to welcome the upcoming gloomy November Vancouver weather. I used some paisley patterned Born Pretty Store water decals ($1.86 USD, use VGL91 for 10% off) over "Elephant Shoe" from Girly Bits. To see a close up and my Halloween costume this year, click......
I love how elegant these decals are and "Elephant Shoe" is just such a good color for nail art.
For Halloween, I decided to put a little more effort into my costume this year because it will be my last year as an undergraduate student and chances are I may never get to do this again. I dressed up as a marionette and made the head piece out of cardboard, cloth hanger wire, and a headband (with my dad's help).
The head piece was a pain in the butt to walk around with but it looked pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I had quite a bit of fun with the make up too! Yay for fake eyelashes!!
What did you dress up as this year, let me know in the comments!!
