I seem to have been possessed by the Spirit of Halloween Manicures! I don't usually do 3 in a week, but there have been so many great manis out there to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) that I just had to up my game to fit the ones I most want to do in before the 31st. And now on to the art...
This manicure was inspired from 2 sources: Luvable Nail's YouTube video playing HERE & Nail Wish's Day #6 Halloween mani HERE.
After my usual base coat was dry, I gave magnetic polish another go. This time I used China Glaze Magnetix Attraction. This one was also a pita to get off my skin, but I had better luck with the magnet. I used the magnetic cap from a Finger Paints magnetic polish & turned it so the lil bridge one is supposed to place on the cuticle was just past the tip of my left pinky nail & the edge of the cap was resting on my cuticle. I did the same for my left thumb. The wave pattern is reversed, but I can live with that as some of the pattern is covered with red polish & upside down beats none at all.
I used L.A. Colors Color Craze Hot Blooded for the dripping blood & Wet N' Wild Wild Shine French White for the fangs. I used a dotting tool to place red polish near the cuticles & to make the bottom of the drips. I used a short striper (it's about 5/8" long & easier to control than the 3/4" - 1" stripers commonly used for nail art) to fill out & connect the drips & to paint the fangs. Last step was a protecting coat of Seche Vite.
I think I can squeeze in one more Halloween manicure before da season of spookiness is over. Any ideas on what I should do? Jack-o-lanterns? Ghosts or ghouls? I do want to do more with my GITD polishes...stay tuned!
