Nail Diary #304

October 20, 2014

Here we are 11 days until Halloween and I am still having a blast making Halloween manicures.  Oh and by the way I have also been watching a scary movie every night this month, I literally have not missed a day.  I have to say I am getting a bit jumpy at night, hahaha.

This was a complicated skittle manicure,meaning every nail is different plus it was made using a few different techniques.  I am pretty sure I worked too many hours on it, but sigh it turned out really creepy so all is good.  I had it in my mind if I can do dry marble decals then darn it I can try stamping decals.  I sure had fun making them, applying them was a bit cumbersome but it was my first try; nothing is easy at first.

A glimpse into my “mad” nail polish laboratory

I made my decals for my ring and middle fingers from Bundle Monster plate BM-413.  I basically did the stamping like normal but instead of quickly putting the image onto my nail I let it dry, applied a clear top coat over the image on the stamper and then filled my negative space in with white polish.  I let those dry really good before adding them onto my nails with my base color.  I put a different skull image on each nail over a SquareHue polish base color called Passeig de gracia.  Passeig de gracia is a dark vampy purple almost ends up black on the nail after a few coats.  As if that wasn’t enough work, I went ahead and created some dry marble decals for my other three nails.  On those nails I did random combos of four colors:  Pure Ice purple shimmer Bedtime, Pure Ice white Superstar, Pure Ice Black outSinful Colors slime green Irish green,  and last but def not least Revlon Elusive which is a black base full of multi size green/blue glitter.  These colors combined to together made for a creepy witches brew effect on my nails.  They turned out pretty good, well worth the extra effort.

What is you favorite scary movie?  I have yet to run out of them to watch.  So far my favorite this year would have to be Annabelle.  Creepy dolls and demons get me every time, yikes!  But I can’t wait to see it again when it comes out on DVD!

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
