Halloween manis Part II

Published October 21, 2014 by clairestelle8

This may be quite a long series! I am co host of a Halloween nail art challenge on Instagram so I guess I only have myself to blame! The next prompt was black and orange and so rather ambitiously I decided to attempt my first watermarble. I used Models Own polishes in Summer Solstice and Liquorice Allsorts for the marble. These were a little thick for spreading so I thinned them a little. In future I will use polishes with a thinner consistency. However I was quite pleased with a first attempt.

I topped it with Liquid Sky Lacquer Holo Top Coat. This was in no way to gloss over any imperfections! Though I do think it brought the whole thing together!

The next mani’s prompt was black cats. I adore cats so I was much happier about about this than when I was adorning spiders on my nails! For the base I used Fun Lacquer Tiana which I thought was a suitably Halloweeny green and used Moyou Festive Plate 16 and Gothic Plate 05 for my spooky cat and black lace design with Models Own Liquorice Allsorts

Last up ( for now!) are my ghost nails. As I’m using every chance to practice, I used this opportunity to try stamping again. I used Models Own Liquorice Allsorts again as a base. ( it’s getting a lot of use this month! Which is unfortunate as I realise I don’t like the smell of liquorice!) and stamped in White Light with Moyou plates Gothic 05 and Festive 16. I thought the final picture looked a little like fangs in a bloody background!
