Glowing Halloween Manicure

This is my second Halloween manicure this year.  I used dotting tools, Wet 'n Wild Black Creme, Wet 'n Wild French White Creme, and three layers of Sally Girl glow in the dark polish.  With all the layers of glow in the dark polish, the eyeballs are pretty bumpy.  I had a hard time making straight line eyeballs on the "snake eyes".

Halloween Manicure

I did most of this manicure with dotting tools. I did the spider web with nail art brushes.  I just don't have any luck with nail art brushes.  I used Revlon Cherry Berry, Wet 'n Wild Black Creme, Wet 'n Wild French White Creme, and an old silver polish.

Konad M60 on a Noname ELF Polish

The color of this ELF polish looks awful in the bottle.  It looks so bad that I tried to sell it at a rummage sale.  Even when it went to the half off table, it didn't sell.  So, I thought I might as well try this polish that was handed down to me.  I love the color on the nails.  It is a good thing no one would buy it at the rummage sale.  I didn't wear the ELF polish long enough to have an opinion on the brand. 

I broke a nail shortly before this manicure, so I had to file down all my other nails.  This makes most people sad.  I, however, see it as an opportunity.  My black or nearly black nail polishes look so much more chic on shorter nails (IMHO).  Also, I can use my Konad M60 plate.  The full nail images on this plate are too small for my nails at their usual length. They are still not wide enough or long enough for my thumbs at this length, but they fit better.

Sunflower Manicure

This manicure was much cuter on pinterest, but aren't they all. Wet 'n Wild Megalast I Need a Refresh Mint as the base, and China Glaze Foie Gras and Spoiled Mind Your Beeswax.  I used a dotting tool for the brown centers and a nail art brush for the petals.  The nail art brushes aren't working the way I hoped they would.  It is hard to get an even stroke of polish.  Perhaps I would have better luck using craft paint.
