Simple, yet still Hawlloween’ish 🙂 And I still found a way to add glitter! Have I mentioned, I love Glitter???!!! In particular, SPECTRAFLAIR!! I think I am going to bite the bullet and buy some of my own spectraflair pigment to add to my nail polishes.
So, this manicure was started with a base of plain creme black (Wet n Wild) 2 layers of a SpectraFlair topcoat, and the stitches (inspired by this post) were done with an “Art Deco” by “LA Colors” striping brush in a lime green (? they didn’t have a name on the bottle).
Ta Da !!!
Have an awesome day! (have you “Liked” the Mommy Loves Nail Polish Facebook page yet?)
Another Halloween inspired (in colour only, not theme ) manicure!
My original idea for this manicure, was to use the black polish (Nail in my Coffin), and using the red sparkle polish (Once Upon A Time) as blood dripping down from the tips of my nails (Halloween inspired obviously – I am not that morbid normally :-).
Well, the black went on beautiful – two coats and done. Completely opaque and shiny. The red sparkle on the other hand, wasn’t what I expected when I started using it. The base that the sparkles are suspended in, is a clear black, and just didn’t apply as blood red (sparkly as it may have been lol) as I was hoping. Just like I did a bad job with mt top coat.
So I made Once Upon A Time, a two layer top coat over Nail in my Coffin. It actually looks pretty awesome. But I am not looking forward to trying to remove all of these sparkles! I didn`t bother to put a special base on to help when removing sparkles. (see Base for glitter polish post) Oh well 🙂
Thanks for looking ! Have great day 🙂
How adorable are these nail polish bottles?? The polish colour inside is nice, but the bottles are totally awesome!
Wet n Wild always comes out with something interesting for Halloween. I don’t care if they are only a couple of dollars, I confess – I love Wet n Wild, and I am over the age of 12 ! 🙂
There were 4 polishes in the Halloween Fantasy Makers collection , but I only got two. “Once Upon A Time” (clear with various sizes of red glitter) and “Nail in My Coffin” (a shiny black with silver sparkle dust).
The other two available were a glow in the dark, and small purple glitter.
I will take photos and post them today or tomorrow !
