Halloween, I am READY for you!
I wasn’t sure what to do with my nails for this festive occasion. There are so many possibilities !! I looked on Google images and picked five of my favorite looks to make up my spooky manicure!! This look kind of took me out of my comfort zone as it was nail art heavy! I found the pumpkin really challenging, it was difficult to keep a steady hand! I love how the thumb nail turned out and I love this manicure! I already got complimented on it by a total stranger, that always feels great!
Here are some close-ups.
My favorite is the fangs, what’s yours? 🙂
This tutorial kind of explains itself so it won’t be very wordy . 🙂
The base polishes are from yesterdays manicure post! Why waste a manicure when you can upgrade it?!! Here’s what I used.
It’s better to cut the tape and have it ready in strips at the edge of a table or somewhere convenient.
Peel the tape off while the polish is still wet. That’s key! Pull carefully and one strip at a time.I used Sally Hansen’s White On for this manicure.
I thought this manicure would be more difficult than it actually was. Once I had the tape cut and ready it was easy.
I got the inspiration for this manicure from this picture. (and because my fiance loves how cherry blossoms look!)
I love the stark contrast between the red and the white background.
Here’s what I used.
Here’s my base coat. It gave me a lot problems because it was so goopy and gooey. Luckily I read an article this week about how to ‘save’ nail polishes. I put a few drops of nail polish remover in the bottle shook it up and then it was much easier to apply. The polish remover thinned it out nicely.
Without the blossoms the trees kind of look like Japanese symbols!
Here it is with the blossoms! I didn’t wait long enough for the red polish to dry before I used a top coat. Some of the blossoms ran a little. I need to learn to be more patient!!! 🙂 I still think they look good though!
This look was inspired by a top I own.
I wanted my nails to match it. I normally don’t do that but this time I did! Here’s what I used for this manicure.
The base coat is Etude House (Korean brand) the white is Konad stamping polish and I finished it with OPI topcoat. Also, I used some nail art stones!
And here’s the manicure!
Dotting is one of my favourite nail art styles, mainly because it was the first nail art tool I bought. Also, because it’s so easy to do! I especially love this manicure because of the contrasting colors.
For this mani I used Sally Hanson Hard as Nails Xtreme wear ‘Black Out’ & ‘White On’ the blue was a Korean brand polish I picked up in a beauty store.
My trusty dotting tools.
