Update: Night Terror Contest is OVER!


The winners were announced...and it wasn't me. They boys won. It was basically just between the three of us for the win. Several people entered, but only we went all the way. 1st place winner got the Night Terror glove made by Mike Ramirez and 2nd place winner got a Demented Glove Works mini glove made by Brian Dgw Sills.

1st place - The Dokken, part 3 glove by NTG

2nd place - mini glove by DGW

But, I don't go home empty handed. A friend of Mike Ramirez (Shay Fogg) has decided to give me an 8X10 signed photo of Robert Englund because I'm the 3rd place winner!
That's pretty awesome, so I'm good

Let's Talk Practical Magic... BLOG PARTY!


"I only have 2 words to say to you: Jimmy Angelov..."

My favorite scene in Practical Magic is where Gillian meets Jimmy Angelov (Goran Višnjić)

This is how I discovered the song, "Is This Real" by Lisahall

Swapping Howdies decided to post SECRETS at her party! I LOVE her brain
This is my SECRET though it's not that much of a secret  

Since it's such a short scene in the movie and I really want you to hear the whole song, I'll give you some different eye candy that I know you will still appreciate.

I know I do

This is the song "Is This Real" set to scenes from Blood Ties. Henry Fitzroy is defintely easy to look at and he's a Vampire. He's played by actor Kyle Schmid.
Sadly the show was cancelled in 2008.

Your Welcome!
I have the complete series on DVD

Now, back to Practical Magic

I haven't read the book, I've only seen the movie.
 If you'd like to read the book, this is what it looks like:

In The Movie:
The women in the Owens family are cursed with having their true loves die tragically. This is what happened to Sally and Gillian's parents. That is how they ended up living with their aunts. Gillian, the flirty, charming sister played by Nicole Kidman, wants desperately to fall in love. Sally, the more responsible and gifted sister, played by Sandra Bullock, decides that after all the heartbreak she's witnessed, she never wants to fall in love. So, she decides to cast an impossible spell to find her true love, knowing it can never be fulfilled. 

This is another favorite scene of mine.

"He will hear my call a mile away. He will whistle my favorite song. He can ride a pony backwards." "He can flip pancakes in the air. He'll be marvelously kind. And his favorite shape will be a star. And he'll have one green eye and one blue."

"The guy I dreamed of doesn't exist. And if he doesn't exist, I'll never die of a broken heart. And if he doesn't exist, I'll never die of a broken heart."

Those were my absolute favorite two scenes from the movie, but the entire movie is great. If you have not seen it already, then check it out.

   Simple Love Spell
* *

Light a small White or Pink candle
Place it by the window sill at night.
This is you calling out to your love.

Feeling Witchy?

Get into some Wicked "textured" Nicole by OPI nail polish

Confession: I am Addicted to Crack...

 Nail Polish! 
What did you think? 

I am in love

So, I overheard some ladies talking so animatedly one day about "crack" nail polish. The name was so interesting that I stopped to listen. I love nail polish, so I really couldn't help myself. I was curious, but kept my distance... The next day, as I was walking in Target, pretty colors in the distance caught my eye. I walked towards the eye candy and to my delight, I saw what appeared to be "crack" polish. The brand I saw was called "texture coat" from Nicole by OPI

There are many different names (Krakl, Shatter, Crackle, Texture...) for this type of polish and there are several different brands. I purchased a few of them. So far, Nicole by OPI "texture coat" brand is the best. It's thick and comes out exactly like this picture. The other brands I have purchased advertise to look like this picture but when applied, look nothing like it. I'm going to keep looking for other great "crack" polishes.

 I bought:
1st place - Nicole by OPI - the absolute BEST!
2nd place - Pure Ice "Crackle" - the cheapest
3rd place - Absolute!  - NO, don't you dare!

I FOUND my "crack":
Nicole by OPI @ Target
Pure Ice @ Walgreens
Absolute @ Beauty Supply store

These are my nails after I applied BLACK crack polish over ORANGE nail color...
I used Nicole by OPI brand

How to apply:
Put two coats of any polish, let nails dry
Apply ONE coat of crack polish, let dry - it's like MAGIC, disappearing
Apply clear top coat to dry nails

With Nicole by OPI, one regular coat is perfect
With any other "crack" brand, you need to lay that ONE coat thick to get same result
