I want to share all of the Halloween nail art I have had a chance to do so far. Since there are 3 of them I will just do them all in one post. :)
The first ones I did on the little daughters best friend. They are inspired by Robin Moses, who I just adore. Every time she posts something new I want to try it in some form. So if you haven't seen her page check her out. The art work is amazing.
These are "Blood Soaked Newspaper"
I made a franken polish of several polishes and I wish I could tell you which ones I used but I can not remember (I went back later and tried to do it again and it didn't work). But I made the color a brownish gray to represent aged newspaper.
Then using Skyy Vodka (or rubbing alcohol but the vodka worked better to transfer the ink) i transferred the news paper ink to her nails.
Then using and watered down mix of acrylic paints I painted on the blood color around the bottom of the nail.
Turned out very cute and little daughters best friend was vary happy. :)
I was searching the web looking at all the pictures when I can across one of a mani from the Nightmare before Christmas. I really like the ring finger and thumb. She did not have a water mark on the picture so I don't know who to give credit to for the inspiration.
I started with a Sinful colors as a base coat and then drew the rest free hand with acrylic paints.
Then came mine. I wanted to do something fun and traditional so I picked a typical Halloween night scene.
I started with a base coat of Sinful Colors then sponged on a gradient of Sinful Colors Rain Storm to break up the sky. The rest was drawn free hand with acrylic paints. The right hand looks a little better then the left to me but I haven't had a chance to have some one help me take a picture of both hands together.
To finish off the sky using a small brush I added some China Glaze Fairy dust in between the trees and over the top of the house and witch. Just to add some sparkle to the sky.
So as of this week here are the Halloween manis I have done so far. I have so many ideas and want to try them all but I don't have enough nails to do them on.
There are still 2 and 1/2 weeks till Halloween so I am sure I will have more to post soon.
As always THANKS for reading.
