Spirits Spirit!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so you can only imagine my excitement to create and execute a nail design that screAms Halloween! I couldn't guess the amount of time I have in researching swatches, shopping for colors, deciding which colors and shades to use, and then trying to incorporate glitter, patterns, and a wicked fun treat--which ended up being my own hand-made nail decals!

Trick-OrTreat: Scared Sweet!
My Nails, done by me

Of course, I have to point out that these are my natural nails (minus my pinky nail) in a somewhat-stiletto shape, with which I am thoroughly in love!

I did the background diagonal freehand, used a black striper for the stripes, and created the ghosts and candy corn using nail polish on a plastic bag and then cutting them out/peeling them off. I'll add a link later for this latter technique.

Background orange: Revlon Tangerine
Purple: Revlon Royal Cloak (part of their fall Masquerade collection)
Glitter: Kleancolor My Rightful Throne

And, the last step, applying the decals and top coat to get the finished result!

Boo! Happy Halloween!!!
