Enchanted Forest (ONCE) Manicure

     Today, I have a fun Once Upon A Time inspired manicure to share with you guys. I decided to do this manicure after I saw Taya's contest (over here) last month. But as you know, I was sick as a dog for what seemed like most of last month, which kept me from participating (insert sad face here). So, I decided now that I am feeling better (even though the competition is closed/over) I still wanted to do this mani because I just love the show...and will continue to do so until/if they kill Rumple...then I'm out. If that makes me a fair weather fan so be it...but why would I keep watching if my favorite character isn't on it anymore? And with them doing the whole "One Will Die" thing, tonight may be the last episode I watch. That would be like The Walking Dead without Daryl. You can't just go killing the fan favorite's rude and stupid. Anyway, that's my fan-rant and it's over now. Sorry about that. But if you agree with me you know what I'm saying. But, I digress (Focus RaynesOnyx, focus!), here's what you are really here for. I hope you guys enjoy this mani.

What I used:
OPI: Can't Find My Czechbook, & Ogre The Top Blue
China Glaze: Bermuda Breakaway, Man Hunt, Dandy Lyin' Around, & Liquid Leather.
Ceramcoat: Black, Charcoal, Platinum  

      So there it didn't turn out how I planned (my mind can conceive things I am powerless to execute) but I like it just the same. A solid effort I think. I sponged the back ground in a sort of double sided gradient, then hand painted in the back ground trees, sponged on the fog, then painted in the closer, darker trees. What do you guys think? Do you like how it turned out? Do you watch Once Upon A Time? If so who's your favorite character and why? Also, who do you think they will/should kill off tonight? I think they should kill Cora...She's a psycho hose beast. Leave me a comment below and we can talk about it. Well that's all I have for you today. Until next time, stay classy and stay polished.


  1. Omg, this is really amazing. I'm so sorry to hear you were sick, I bet, you would made amazing manicures for my contest. :D
    I agree, I hope they kill Cora. I want Rumple to live, OUAT won't be the same without him.

    1. Thanks. I am feeling better now. I want so badly to say what happened in the episode but I don't know if you have seen it or not and I don't want to ruin the episode for you. It's an intense episode The Rumple Belle Phone killed me. I also agree that OUAT would suck big time without Rumple, they would have no one to pull the puppet strings or anyone to do that cute little laugh. Anyway, I may do a few more OUAT mani's because I don't think there are enough of them out their. We have to bring our show to the nail blogger world. Right?
