Halloween! What better time of year for a theme manicure? I had lots of different ideas, most of which could have been done as a full manicure by themselves, but lack of time meant that a Halloween skittle effort was the simpler option, here's what I came up with.
I used a combination of sprinkles, stamping and freehand nail art. I stamped pumpkins, a spider and web and some skulls, did the two pinkies in Bumble Bee sprinkles which is an orange base with black glitter and then free-handed a mummy, ghost, Jack Skellington and Frankenstein monster.
I'm rather pleased with how these turned out, even the free-hand nail art turned out pretty well which is not always the case with my shaky hands. I'm also pleased with how the double colour stamping worked out:
To create this manicure I used the following polishes & nail plates.
Illamasqua Radium (base)
Kiko 357 Orange (base)
Kiko 275 Black (base & eyes)
Barry M Matt White (base)
Accessorize Bumble Bee (base)
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Satsuma & Watermelon (for stamping)
Sally Hansen Insta Dri 280 Rapid Red (eyes)
Easy Paris White nail art pen (stamping & eyes)
It took quite a while to complete this manicure but I do think it was worth the time and effort, I'm just a bit disappointed that I don't have a party to wear them out to so I can show them off. ;)
What did you do for Halloween?
