Halloween Manicure & Giveaway Winner!

Hi everybody! Sorry I have been so absent, I have been fighting off hibernation. I'm just so tired and I want to sleep all the time! I plan on swatching much more often, I am very very behind on swatches and I need to stop sleeping so much! My hot Canadian man is coming up here(Minnesota) for the Mayan Apocalypse Christmas and I have plenty of things to do to prepare! I am supposed to be back in Toronto in January, hoping border control will let me in again since it's been a nightmare the last two times.

I added 16 November giveaways to the giveaway page and sidebar, check them out!

Halloween is a great day to come back from the dead, so here is my Halloween Manicure! It's a great excuse to break out those crackles that have been neglected since the crackle craze came and went. :)

                This holiday season, OPI celebrates the 50th Anniversary of a fellow world icon – James Bond – appearing in Skyfall. Starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem, this highly-anticipated twenty-third installment opens in theaters nationwide on November 9, 2012. 
Inspired by the film’s blend of glamour and danger, OPI launches Skyfall Collection, featuring twelve limited-edition nail lacquers for Holiday 2012. “OPI is thrilled to work with EON Productions to celebrate 50 years of the style, swagger and mystique associated with Bond 007,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “From metallic and glitter finishes to jewel tones and even a jet black, these lacquers capture the film’s sophisticated and glamorous look.
“Watch for Bérénice Marlohe wearing two Skyfall Collection shades in the film,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With Skyfall, a rich maroon, painted on top of the nail and GoldenEye, a shimmering gold, painted on the undersides, Marlohe’s luxurious manicure will be the one to try this holiday season.”
The Skyfall Collection features six shades that play off the movie’s seductive theme, and another six that offer a more dangerous look, including:
All eyes will be upon you when you wear this glorious gold.
The Spy Who Loved Me
A red as romantic as the secret agent inside you.
Die Another Day
Live in the moment in this hot and lively red.
Casino Royale
This high-rolling plum is fit for royalty.
You Only Live Twice

The Living Daylights
