Inspiration: Miss Argentina

I know, I know. This should have been a Halloween post. But I decided that it was so happy and bright that it didn't deserve to be pigeon-holed into Halloween. This is definitely more of a springtime manicure than a fall...but I don't care. It makes me happy on so many levels.

Beetlejuice is one of my favorite movies. As a kid I watched it repeatedly. Of course, I didn't get half the jokes that were in it, but it was a visually appealing movie for a kid who liked things a little on the spooky side. One of the characters that stuck with me was Miss Argentina. She was the glamorous ghoul that I aspired to be.

My Inspiration
found randomly on Pinterest

My Version

Colors Used
Octopus Party On a Cliff
Octopus Party Spume Fed
Mystery Franken x2*
Sally Hansen Mighty Mango
Essie E-nuf is E-nuf
NYC Tudor City Teal 
OPI Amazon Amaz-Off

I think it isn't terribly reminiscent of Miss Argentina, but I see the inspiration here. Plus I found a franken recipe that really inspired me to try my own...and then some. I may have created a monster with this manicure.

So what is the verdict? Should this have been wedged into October, or is it abstract enough to be out and about post-holiday?

*those mystery frankens have a post of their own coming soon. Don't you worry!


  1. Well this is another one of my all time favorites!

  2. This is freaking gorgeous! How did you do the pinky? It doesn't look like a regular water marble but it's all sorts of pretty. :)

    1. its a normal water marble...but I tried to use a holo in there. OPNL Spirit Mint, to be showed up not at all...except that it ate into the OPI a bit.
