I’ve come across some amazing nail artists on instagram and found them so inspiring for my own nail art experiments. Now while I don’t claim to be vey talented I am enjoying having fun with new techniques and what better excuse to have fun than some Halloween themed manis! Halloween is pretty much my favourite holiday so I make no apologies for the Halloween spam that follows!
What says Halloween more than pumpkins and so this was the perfect excuse to put these fabulous pumpkin face stencils to use that I purchased from She Sells Seashells ( details of shop at end of post). I used Models Own polishes Summer Solstice and Thunder and Lightening with the vinyls and I was pretty pleased with the result!
This was my Skulls and Bones mani. I stamped Nails Inc Chelsea Bridge Road Gold Foil over Laquerlicious Changing Leaves. This was my first ever stamping effort so by no means flawless but it’s all a learning curve!
Now I’m pretty scared of spiders and don’t think I fancy them on my nails but when the prompt fir an art challenge came up with spider and webs mani I decided comical was the safest way to go!! I used Models Own polishes in Carat Coral and hand painted spiders and webs with Liquorice Allsorts and topped with Thunder and Lightening. Not too scary I don’t think?!
More to come! Told you I liked Halloween!
Models Own came be purchased from selected Superdrug stores and at http://www.modelsownit.com/. Laquerlicious polishes are available at http://laquerlicious.bigcartel.com/ and the vinyls I used are from http://www.she-sells-seashells.co.uk/
