Happy Halloween!: More Halloween Nail Art

Posted on Oct 31, 2014

Happy Halloween!  Who’s dressing up today!?  I’m totally lame and I’m not dressing up unless I can find my cat ears from a past Halloween.  But nails… done and DONE! :)  I hope you enjoy the last of the Halloween nail art until next year!

After I did my Corpse Bride inspired watermarble a couple weeks ago, someone said I should do a Jack Skellington inspired one.  DUH, why didn’t I think of that!  I love The Nightmare Before Christmas so that was a no-brainer!  I used Nicole by OPI “Yoga Then Yogurt” as the base and then used YTY, OPI “A Roll In The Hague” and Essie “Licorice” for the marble.  I used YTY and L for my Jack accent nail.  Not my best work but man, I do love The Pumpkin King!

This manicure was inspired by the lovely Corynn from  A Mummy watermarble!  I had thought of this when I was on my watermarbling frenzy and then I saw her do it and I was like, yep!  It needs to be done on my nails!  For this watermarble, I applied Color Club “Look, Don’t Tusk” as a base then used Polish My Life “Stripped”, Color Club “Look, Don’t Tusk” and Nicole by OPI “That’s Putting It Mild” for the marble.  Once it dried, I used my Sally Hansen I Love Nail Art pen in black to draw on the “mask” and then used the white polish and a black polish to create the eyes!  Again, it’s not my best work but still pretty cute I think. :)

So, have you ever wondered why I’ve never done stamping on my blog?  Well, here it comes… I suck at it!  I don’t know if it’s the ridges on my nails or bad stamping plates or what but I’ve never been able to make it work.  The other day, I saw a short Instagram tutorial on @BadGirlNails‘ page and I was like WHATTTTTT???

Now n00bs like me can do stamping too!  My only tip for the technique is to do your “stamping sheets” as you go.  I did a bunch of the sheets before I was ready to put them on my nails and they were too crunchy to apply after sitting for a while.

For the base I used Deborah Lippmann “Lara’s Theme”.  Once that what pretty dry, I applied a top coat and quickly applied the spiderweb stamp on top of that (I used an off-brand stamping plate, A37, China Glaze “I’d Melt For You” and KBShimmer “Clearly On Top” top coat for the stamping sheets.)  Once the sheet was placed nicely, I then went around the edges of my nail with my cleanup brush and acetone to get the excess off.  I used black and red acrylic paint and free-handed the black widow spider.  Then topped the whole thing off with top coat.

I think you might see more stamping on my blog using this method!  I’m kind of excited about it!

Lastly, I have my jack-o-lantern nail art which is actually my nails of the day today too!  I used OPI “Glints of Glinda” for the base, Deborah Lippmann “Don’t Stop Believin'” and Zoya “Thandie” for the pumpkins, Zoya “Louise” for the stems, Zoya “Hunter” for the vines and a black stamping polish for the jack-o-lantern faces. I used the same technique as the spiderweb mani above and created “stamping sheets” which made placing the faces a breeze!  I liked them without the faces too!  Perfect Halloween mani for me. :)
