For our 2nd Challenge, the Digit-al Dozen this month are tackling Halloween. I must admit, although I LOVE seeing everyone else's Halloween manis, I really struggle for inspiration with this one. I don't know if it's because Halloween isn't (or wasn't) such a big deal in the UK, but I lack the emotional connection with this "holiday".
So, today's nails I actually like. I warn you though, they get worse as the week goes on ha ha.
This started with a base of OPI A Roll In The Hague, pretty much the perfect Halloween Orange. In truth, it's possibly a little too bright for me, but I still like it, and you've already seen it a lot in nail art, where it really just pops.
Applied beautifully, as you would expect.
I wanted to do something slightly different with all my Halloween posts, so they are all framed with sponging. To be honest, this started as an accident - for this mani, I thought it would add to the dusty cobwebby feel - but it's proved really effective.
This was sponged with Bettina Iron.
And then we have the smorgasbord of Halloween stamps.
My favourite of all is the one on the thumb and middle finger - this is from plate 30 which you can get from My Online Shop.
The big scary spiders are from ... oh. I know I put it down here somewhere. Coooo-eeee stamping plate, where are you ??? Truth is, there's so much crap on my desk it could be anywhere. Ggrrrrr. Sorry, gonna have to update you. Fail. :(
Overall, I do love this mani - I love the clash of the orange and the grey and the stamping just pops.
Don't forget to check out what everyone else has done :) Enjoy xxx
