Midnight Beauty Pirate

Over the weekend I went to a Halloween party with the family, and my husband and I dressed up as pirates. I’m calling this look ‘Midnight Beauty Pirate’. The dress I got (which was supposed to be a “witch” costume) was this gorgeous shade of purple with black, so I coordinated my nails to match.

Midnight Beauty-010I did a gradient using Sally Hansen Night Fright and OPI DS Extravagance and stamped over it using BM-310 with  Night Fright. For the accent nail I used BM-413 with Sally Hansen OMGhost and Extravagance to color the cross.

For my makeup I was inspired by Goldiestarling’s Pirate Wench makeup tutorial…
